My law firm has dedicated itself to timely and professionally delivering the highest quality of legal services with regular and personal communications with your lawyer.

I opened my firm in 2001 to help my clients in all forms of civil litigation and civil matters. Prior to opening my practice, I was a partner of an AV-rated civil litigation firm for 17 years, formally known as Koppel, Ezell, Jackson & Kimball. An AV rating is the highest rating of law firms by Martindale-Hubbell.

I take pride in bringing a straightforward outlook and approachable manner to all clients to obtain SUPERIOR RESULTS.

I am ranked in the top five percent of lawyers in South Texas by other practicing lawyers and judges according to Martindale-Hubbell, the most highly recognized lawyer rating service. Martindale-Hubbell has been rating lawyers nationwide for many years based upon a confidential survey of local lawyers and judges.

My very high ranking by Martindale-Hubbell demonstrates an extraordinary recognition by local lawyers and judges of my skills and work ethic. I believe this high ranking was based upon many years of obtaining great results for my clients and based upon my high degree of ethical conduct in obtaining those results.
