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. As a result of that experience in debate, as well as the influence of my mother (also an attorney), it was 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 and our daughter, traveling, running, and following TU basketball. I have traveled around the world and enjoy the opportunities 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.  I have significant experience in trust, estate, and guardianships issues – both in their administration as well as litigation on those issues – and have obtained favorable outcomes for my clients in some difficult and complex cases.
