My focus is to provide the expert legal advice needed to help protect you and your business.

As your business grows, the legal expertise needed grows along with it. That is why I provide services from helping you determine your most advantageous business structure to contract reviews that help you make smart decisions.

I operate as part of your trusted business advisory team. Whenever there are important decisions, I can help you understand how they affect you and your business from a legal perspective. I can be an active part in assuring you have the legal guidance you need.

My clients tend to be established, growing companies. I am proud to be a part of their success.

I have offices in Dallas, Texas and DeLand, Florida (meetings with lawyers at all offices are by appointment only), and I can service clients remotely in other locations as my licenses permit.
