My clients know me as more than just an attorney. First and foremost, my background is much broader than that. Prior to attending the Valparaiso University School of Law, I earned a Master of Business Administration and ran a small business as a certified public accountant. Thanks to this experience, I possess unique insight which in turn allows me to better assist my clients with a wide range of business and tax matters today.

In total, I have over 20 years of experience in financial management, tax law, and business consulting, and I’m proud to say that I’m utilizing the knowledge I’ve gained to assist the community of Round Rock in a variety of ways. In my current practice, I provide counsel to small to medium-sized businesses, nonprofit organizations, and everyday individuals. Though my primary areas of practice are estate planning, elder law, business consulting, and tax planning, I pride myself on assisting my clients in a comprehensive manner.

Regardless of what you are facing, I will do the best that I can to help you through it.


Whenever I take on a new client, I make an effort to get to know them on a personal level. This, of course, begins with listening. It is important that I fully understand their vision so I can help them successfully translate it into a concrete plan of action that meets their goals and expectations. I appreciate the individual attributes of each client and know firsthand that thoughtful, creative, and customized planning can maximize both financial security and personal happiness. 

Outside of my practice, I spend much of my time with my loved ones. Just as I work to bring my clients’ families closer, I strive to do the same with my own. I have a wonderful wife named Carmen who helps out with the firm, as well as a daughter named Grace. On the weekends, we can often be found entertaining, attending sporting events, and cooking out when the weather is nice. I believe life is about enjoying the simple moments with the ones you love. Thus, I aim to help my clients reach their goals and ease their stress so they can enjoy those moments, too.
