I have practiced law in Texas and Arkansas in the area of litigation since 1977. My practice has included suits filed in counties throughout Northeast Texas and Southwest Arkansas. I have also been involved in numerous Federal Court cases in the Eastern District of Texas and the Western District of Arkansas. I have argued cases before the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans and the Eighth Circuit Courts of Appeals in St. Louis. I have handled a variety of cases, including automobile accidents, wrongful death, personal injury, nursing home abuse and neglect, defective products, fires and explosions, large truck accidents and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulation issues, mass tort litigation, travel trailer accidents, brain injuries, pharmaceutical injuries, complex business litigation and class actions involving the accounting and insurance industry as well as numerous first party insurance claims. I have been involved in some of the largest class actions in the U.S. I served as court appointed Co-Liaison Defense Counsel in two class actions in Miller County, Arkansas: Hensley and Chivers. The Hensley class action involved more than 500 insurance carriers and I represented more than 200 defendants in that case. The Chivers case involved more than 40 insurance carriers. I have also served as co-counsel in other class actions.

I have been Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization since 1985 in both Personal Injury Trial Law and Civil Trial Law. I have been a member of the Litigation, Appellate Law, Computer and Technology Law, Consumer Law, Family Law, Health Law, Insurance Law, and Intellectual Property Law Sections of the State Bar of Texas; a member of the Business Litigation Section, Tort Trial and Insurance Practice, Business Science and Technology Law Section, and Intellectual Property Law Section of the Arkansas Bar Association; a member of the American Bar Association Tort, Trial and Insurance Practice Section, Litigation Section, Business Law Section, Science and Technology Law Section, and Intellectual Property Law Section; a member of the Arkansas Trial Lawyers Association; a member of the American Association for Justice and as a member of that organization I have belonged to the Business Torts Section, Family Law Section, Insurance Section, Products Liability Section, Nursing Home Litigation Group, Motor Vehicle Accident, Highway and Premises Liability Section, the Toxic Environmental and Pharmaceutical Torts Section, ERISA Litigation Group, Gas, Fire and Explosion Litigation Group, and Cox 2-Litigaton Group. I have handled in excess of a thousand claims on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants involving personal injury and complex, civil trial matters. I have taken more than a thousand depositions in the personal injury and complex civil trial matters and hundreds of Examinations under Oath in connection with arson and fraud related claims. I am an active participant in Continuing Legal Educational courses some of which are listed below.

I have extensive experience in many different types of motor vehicle accidents especially with respect to the trucking industry. For many years, I have been involved with, studied and attended seminars related to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, which govern the trucking industry. I have represented individuals involved in serious accidents against the trucking industry and I have also been hired by the trucking industry to defend claims filed against trucking companies and their drivers.

I have spent more than 30 years handling numerous insurance related issues ranging from first party, third party, PIP and UM/UIM claims as well as class actions involving the insurance industry. I have also participated in litigation involving crash-worthiness issues related to automobiles. These are just some examples of the different types of litigation in which I have been involved for the past 30 plus years.
