It surprises people to know sometimes that I'm not just a lawyer, but I also carry a journeyman's card with plumbers and pipefitters. I was a pipefitter for years before becoming a lawyer. I'm still paying my dues like everybody else. I'm a general counselor for the Texas Building Trades. That's every craft involved in the construction in the State of Texas as well as the Dallas Building Trades. I understand what a working man goes through because I've been one. That's what I did, and what I do now is to represent injured people that can't go back to work. I understand the unions. I understand the benefits and can help you through the program. If you get hurt, call me. I can help you.
