Personal Biography

I am a fourth generation Tulsan. I met my wife, Rita, while we were both students at Booker T. Washington High School in the speech and debate program. Due to my positive experience in debate class, as well as the influence of my mother (also an attorney), it seemed inevitable that I would go to law school. Tulsa is a special place for my family and I decided to stay here instead of offers to leave the state for other law schools.

Away from work, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, running, and following TU basketball. I have traveled around the world and enjoy the challenges and experiences that come with that. My favorite place to visit is my family’s cabin in New Mexico.

I enjoy the strategy of law and I enjoy helping people solve their problems. I use my experiences to develop creative arguments to resolve legal disputes.
