Basically, from the age of 16 on I lived by myself. I had my own place, had to work to help pay my bills. I worked a wide variety of different jobs including trucking, welding, worked on a grass farm, worked in a funeral home, worked in restaurants so I’ve got a background in a lot of various kind of unique jobs that I think help me want to understand my clients a little better. And I’ve had to work for where I am today nothing was handed to me.
Currently, in 2018 I am the president of the Houston Trial Lawyer Association. I’ve served on the state bar board of directors. I’ve been on the board of directors for the Texas Trial Lawyer Association. The board of directors for the Texas Trial and Appellate Specialist Association. I’ve been chair of the Advocates Committee, which is the younger members of the Texas Trial Lawyer Association. I serve on multiple Houston Bar Association committees including chairing the Access to Justice Committee. It’s been one of the things that I think all lawyers should be a part of most lawyers don’t spend the time to give back not just through community service but through the bar associations. It’s not just about getting my name out there, it’s not just about increasing my resume it’s make a difference for my clients.
I think the biggest piece of advice that over and over again is the insurance companies are not on your side. Do not trust them. When they first contact you, they’re very pleasant, very polite they want to act like they want to try to help. At the end of the day, their job is to pay as little on a claim if not deny a claim outright. The earlier that you can retain a lawyer the better, evidence can get lost.
