Description of Practice

I tried over 152 civil jury trials in 13 Texas Counties including Harris, Travis, Bexar, Tarrant, Guadalupe, Orange and Parker. I defended hundreds of insureds for State Farm, Zurich, Lloyd's of London, Empire Lloyds and others from 1988 to 2004. I also represented over 1000 plaintiffs in personal injury, death cases, DTPA, Consumer claims and contracts beginning in 1998. Having tried over 100 defense cases and over 40 plaintiff cases, I have experience and perspective from both sides. I drill down into the case facts using 29 years of trial experience to find where the strengths and weaknesses of the case are legally, factually and emotionally. I am available to mediate on non-business days or at non-business hours. Saturdays and Sundays can be arranged and if you want your mediation from 6 to 10 pm, consider it done. When you need a mediation done right and done soon, schedule with us.

Approach

I look for the emotional component in conflict. Having represented both Plaintiffs and Defendants, I know they both approach disputes with different attitudes and different agendas. Decisions about what to offer and what to expect are usually made based on deeply rooted convictions that are not easily freed. I work on the impediments to decision making.
