Based here in Houston, I’m proud to provide personal injury services that include not only maritime law, but also car, truck, bike, and motorcycle wrecks, premises liability cases, traumatic brain injury cases and even chemical exposure incidents. I also handle multi-million dollar commercial and property damage claims. I’ve handled cases across the country, and I’m willing to travel to tend to yours.

Efficient Dispute Resolution

Dispute resolution can come in different forms depending on the nature of your situation. For cost-effective solutions that can be resolved amicably and creatively, we can talk about mediation. For cases that require more input, I’ll suggest arbitration, and for especially complex cases that need to be resolved quickly, we’ll talk about my special master service.

No-Cost Consultation

Companies are liable for their trucks, vessels, and equipment.

If you or a loved one is injured due to the carelessness of others, whether from improperly operating commercial vehicles, vessels, or equipment, contact me. Those responsible should be held responsible. I have been handling cases like these for over 30 years.

Accountability on the water & road

Negligence is one of the basic concepts upon which personal injury and other bodies of law are based. As humans, we all make mistakes. The question is whether we own our mistakes. Everyone can and should take appropriate precautions to protect themselves and others. Frequently, this is as simple as establishing and following proper safety rules.

Don’t drink and drive. Always wear a helmet. Put on your seat belt. Follow instructions on the job, especially on a commercial vessel or rig! We see and hear these guidelines so often that sometimes they lose their meaning and importance. Workers must be reminded to follow established safety rules. You could be saving yourself and others a world of hurt.

“The legal process is a marathon, not a race.
steady patience makes all the difference.”

What a lot of people don’t realize about their case is, it’s never a one-and-done situation. Your legal case isn’t something that you can expect to get wrapped up in an expedited, week-long process. No — depending on the legal area and your specific circumstances, the process can take anywhere from 8 months to more than a year.

That’s why it’s important you understand that we need to pace ourselves during the process and accept that results will not be instant.

On the bright side, this gives me the time to devote the necessary attention and diligence your case requires. In this way, we can develop a great working relationship as well, so we together can be as productive as possible. Don’t hesitate to schedule your free consultation today, so we can discuss your claim and your needs.
