I received a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Austin College in Sherman Texas and a law degree (J.D.) from the University of Texas. I am admitted to practice law in the courts in Texas in 1964, various U.S. District Courts and the U.S. Supreme Court. I have experience as a partner in a private law firm for about 25 years and as attorney in the Office of Attorney General of Texas for about 22 years. I have experience in litigation, office practice and appellate work, primarily in real estate, title examination, preparation of wills and probate, and drafting and litigation of contracts and business organizations. In October 2010 I retired from my position as Assistant Attorney General.
I have more than thirty years of experience as a teacher at the community college level. I have presented papers at Continuing Legal Education (CLE) programs approved by the State Bar of Texas. In my current position as Adjunct Professor of Paralegal Studies I teach the “Law of Real Property” and the “Wills, Trusts and Administration of Estates” courses. Beginning Fall 2018 I am also teaching Contracts.
