The most satisfying part of my job is fighting for people who are faced with toughest situation of their lives. I get to learn their story and present it from a perspective that the law doesn't usually see-the client's. Whether defending someone from false accusations or simply from a system that too often favors harsh consequences, practicing trial law allows me to show a prosecutors, judges, and juries a different perspective: that my client is human being who deserves the full protection of the law, not just a name and number.

Born in the Texas Panhandle, I grew up in San Antonio and graduated from Ronald Reagan High School summa cum laude before moving to Waco to attend Baylor University in 2005. There I graduated magna cum laude from the University Scholars program and the Baylor Honors College, concentrating in Classical Languages and Philosophy. While an undergraduate student, I was inducted into the prestigious Phi Beta Kappa honor society and presented my original research at the Classical Association of the Middle West and South's Annual Meeting. I also served as editor-in-chief of the Iconoclast, a student-written campus journal.

After graduating from Baylor University, I was offered a full-tuition scholarship to study at Baylor Law School. At Baylor Law, I focused my studies on criminal law, completing the school's Criminal Law concentration and holding internships with the McLennan County District Attorney's Office and the Federal District Court for the Western District of Texas. I graduated from Baylor Law in the top-third of my class in May 2013.

In October 2014, I married my college sweetheart and fellow attorney, Amanda. Together we have renovated a historic Waco home near downtown where we live with our dog, Winston, and cats, Franklin and Eleanor.
