Texas Tech Board of Barristers

That's me in the back (middle).  I became interested in appellate practice while in law school and was on selected as a member of Tech's national moot court teams in 1983 and 1984.  Following graduation from law school in 1984, my first job as an attorney was in the Appellate Section of the Dallas County District Attorney's Office.  I handled interstate extraditions, as well as numerous appeals from trials of misdemeanor and felony cases, including capital (death penalty) cases.  Among many other interesting cases, I was co-counsel for the State with John Nation in the Abdelkrim Belachheb appeal.  Belachheb was convicted of killing six persons and seriously wounding another person in a shooting at a restaurant-club called Ianni's in Dallas Texas that occurred in 1984 and was a matter of world-wide attention.  At the time, the law did not allow for the death penalty in mass murder cases. The cases notoriety propelled the Texas Legislature to pass the "multiple murder" statute in 1985 to make serial killing and mass murder capital crimes. 

Graduation Day 1984

Thirty years ago last month, I learned that I had passed the Texas Bar Exam. Since then it has been my privilege and great honor to practice law in Texas and to serve and protect the rights of my clients, starting with my first job as an attorney in Appellate Section of the Dallas County District Attorney's Office and continuing through the present. When elected, I look forward to the opportunity to serve the citizens of Collin, Dallas, Grayson, Hunt, Kaufman and Rockwall Counties as Justice (Place 12) on the Fifth District Court of Appeals at Dallas by drawing on my many years of experience prosecuting and defending civil and criminal cases in the trial and appellate courts. Thank you for your confidence, your support and your vote.
