In 1974 I met my wife, Donna, on a blind date at the University of Texas. We were married in 1978 and have been together on life's journey ever since. She has given me two fine sons, Nathan, born in 1984, and Nicholas, born in 1989. Nathan graduated from Texas Tech University in 2006, and Nick graduated from Ole Miss in 2013. I greatly enjoy spending time with my wife, sons, and grandchildren. I enjoy golf, bird hunting, and attending Texas Ranger and Dallas Stars games. We like to travel as a family. When we cannot, a backyard barbecue is an ample substitute.
My personal philosophy is that lawyers should help facilitate solutions, not be part of the problems. I believe that the purpose behind litigation is to resolve a dispute, and not to prolong the process for personal gain.
