I come from a multi-disciplinary educational background that has greatly influenced how I view the role of attorneys and our jobs as counselors of law. My experience as an entrepreneur and my family background in real estate has also greatly influenced how I view the practice of law.
While in graduate school, I founded a land mobile radio business that catered to the communication needs of school districts and small municipalities throughout North and Central Texas. With the rapid growth I experienced over the course of 5 years, I learned that having an accessible attorney who served as both a legal advisor and teacher was invaluable to the success of a business that I later sold after entering law school.
I’ve also been involved with my family’s real estate investments for almost 15 years. I started out working on rehabbing properties (I became fairly adept at drywalling) and later became a property manager before I graduated from law school and passed the bar. Currently, I have single-family residential holdings in Central, North, and West Texas. Over the years, I have spent a significant amount of time researching, writing, and teaching the applications and limits of the Series LLC model for real estate investors in Texas. I am currently using the Series LLC model for my own holdings and have recently began applying the Series LLC model in conjunction with family limited partnerships.
I am also an educator of over twelve years teaching at various community colleges and universities. In the past, I have taught Texas History, Texas Constitutional Law, U.S. Constitutional Law, and several intensive courses regarding the Civil War-era Texas Supreme Court and Reconstruction-era litigation.
Currently, I serve as a Lecturer in the G. Brint Ryan College of Business at the University of North Texas, where I teach Business Law, Business Ethics, Estate Planning, and Negotiations. My primary areas of academic scholarship are the Series LLC model, taxation of irrevocable trusts, and real estate disclosure ethics.
Overall, I feel a holistic approach to problem-solving provides a unique avenue to explore the intersections of various areas of law, such as business formations and operations, estates, real estate, trusts, and tax law. I look forward to getting to know each and every client, as my goal is to provide comprehensive legal services that are tailored specifically to each client’s needs.
