Bio

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 viewpoint that the law doesn't usually see – my client's. Whether defending someone from false accusations or fighting for the best interest of children, practicing trial law allows me to show 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.

Experience

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. 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.

Since beginning practice in 2013, I have represented hundreds of Central Texans in criminal, DWI, divorce, custody and personal injury matters. Since 2016, I have served as the President of the McLennan County Defense Lawyers Association. In that capacity, I have championed criminal justice causes in McLennan County and in the Texas State Legislature. I also serve on the Board of Directors for the McLennan County Young Lawyers Association.

In 2019, I was selected as the McLennan County Outstanding Young Lawyer of the Year and was nominated for the Texas Outstanding Young Lawyer of the Year. I have been recognized by Thomson Reuters for Super Lawyers as a Rising Star in 2019 and 2020.

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 daughter, Evelyn, and our four rescue animals—Winston, Franklin, Eleanor, and Sebastian. Away from the practice of law, I also support the animal rescue mission of the largest no-kill animal shelter in Central Texas, Fuzzy Friends Rescue, as a member of the Board of Directors since 2016.
