About

Hi, I’m Donald.  I enjoy helping people with their legal matters so they can better understand their options and make well-informed decisions.

I represent clients in the state of Texas in a variety of business and personal matters, including business formation, contracts, family law and estate planning.  My previous work as a business litigator has given me a keen awareness of the role that good planning and clear legal drafting play in avoiding legal issues down the road. 

I have successfully represented large corporations, including banks and insurance companies, in litigation, and find the world of big business fascinating.  But the most fulfilling moments of my legal career have come from helping individuals and small businesses navigate the legal landscape to accomplish their goals. 

My aim is to get to know my clients and their personal and business objectives well so I can provide them with service tailored to their needs.  I love learning about people and cultures and enjoy cooking, traveling and learning languages.  I am proficient in French and German and am working on my Hindi!

Why I Practice Law
I grew up not knowing a single lawyer, and as I started thinking about a career, I realized just how many people, like me, had no idea what to do if faced with a legal issue. It dawned on me that a career in law could be a great way to have a positive impact on people’s lives.
Fun Fact
As a 16-year-old high school student, I was selected to participate in the Pillsbury Bake-Off in New Orleans, LA. I didn’t win, but I was on TV and I got to have lunch with Bob Barker!
