FIRST DAY OF EARLY VOTING FOR PRIMARY:   I did it! I got out today and voted. It is an awesome experience to be able to vote. It is humbling to be able to vote for oneself. 


We spent the weekend of February 17 putting up signs in the rain.  This one was in Greenville, Texas:

TEACHING: I love being in trial, presenting argument to the courts of appeal and preparing briefs. But I get just as much enjoyment from mentoring other attorneys and sharing my skills and experience with them. The attorneys I have mentored include three attorneys that have gone on to be administrative law judges. I am an approved CLE sponsor and have sponsored and presented numerous seminars to attorneys, employer groups and clients. Here is a picture from one of the seminars I sponsored:

Presenting Oral Argument to the Texas Supreme Court in 2016:


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

In November of 1984, 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.
