John realized he wanted to become an attorney after taking an elective political science course as a freshman in college. It was through that class that he realized the transformative power of cases in the court system. He was inspired to change his major and take every single law related class he could. Years later, he is now an accomplished attorney who has been voted a Texas Super Lawyer by his peers and carries a Martindale-Hubbell AV Peer Review Rating.
Experience on your side
John’s legal work is marked by a meticulous attention to detail. He enjoys solving problems for clients, using logic during cross-examination to persuade a witness to admit a point favorable to his client and to sway a judge or jury to view the law and evidence favorably to his client.
John’s work focuses on cases involving serious permanent injuries or loss of life.
When he isn’t busy fighting for his clients, John likes to run and swim, particularly in Austin’s Barton Creek Greenbelt with his rescue dog, Stella.
