Biography

I started my career with Ross and Matthews, P.C. in the Traffic Division in early 2007. After about 6 months of helping clients charged with minor traffic violations I began working in the Litigation Division. There I consulted with and represented clients with a number of debt related litigation issues. It was there that began to learn to do what I do now. I left Ross and Mathews to pursue work in the oil and gas field. I found title research to be very interesting but soon the price of natural gas fell, activity in my area slowed, and I was out of a job. A short while later a good friend was sued by a debt buyer claiming to own an old account that he barely remembered. I was able to get the lawsuit dismissed without my friend having to pay anything. I then decided to start my own practice. I am a solo practitioner in Fort Worth, Texas. I focus on the rights of consumers, particularly in the area of protection from debt collection law suits and the freedom from collection harassment.
