HOUSTON MEDIATOR http:// http://

I am a native Houstonian and graduate of Baylor University, where I played football on an academic-athletic scholarship.  At Baylor, I played for one of my heroes, Grant Teaff.

I graduated from South Texas College of Law in Houston and began to practice law in 1980. 

During law school I worked for Hon. Wyatt H. Heard in the 190th District Court of Harris County, Texas. Watching the best and the worst lawyers in Houston was my job for those two years. 

Judge Heard imparted to me incredible wisdom and insights which seasoned the knowledge I had gained from watching District Court trials.   

This was evident when my partner and I tried our first lawsuit.  Honorable Terry Flenniken was my law partner and best friend.  The lawsuit was against Gerald Hines and the Galleria Limited (Big Shots in Houston) and we won over $1 million for a commercial tenant who was late in paying his rent.

​Not bad for 1981 and the incredible array of defense attorneys Hines had representing him.  Later that year we won another case involving a fatal crash between two 18 wheelers.
