In General

I am committed to providing excellent legal representation and responding quickly to your questions and concerns. As an experienced Houston real estate lawyer, I assist buyers, sellers, investors, commercial landlords and tenants, and other parties in complex commercial and residential real estate transactions in and around Houston, Conroe, Sugar Land, Galveston, Clear Lake, and in the Greenway, Galleria, and the Texas Medical Center areas.  I use my legal skill, my experience, and my ties to the Houston community to help my clients achieve their goals through individually-tailored, cost-effective legal services. As your lawyer, I will explain your legal options and respond to your concerns in plain language, taking the time to see that you fully understand the situation. If you have a question about my practice, or would like to discuss a transaction with me, please contact my office.

Respected by the Texas Legal ProfessionSince 1971, I have been handling commercial and residential real estate transactions throughout the Houston, Texas, area. Since 1984 I have been Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Commercial and Residential Real Estate, a designation given to relatively few attorneys in Texas and one that recognizes an exceptional level of qualification in the practice of real estate law. I have handled hundreds of trials and dozens of appeals in Texas in federal and Texas courts. I am recognized by Martindale Hubble as AV, the highest rating.

Active in the Houston Community.  I am a native of Houston and have practiced law in the area since shortly after graduating from the University of Houston Law Center in 1970, after first working as a Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Department of Justice in Washington D.C.  My twin girls are grown, one, a graduate of Georgetown University and now working in Washington D.C., and the other a graduate of Harvard and now in graduate school at the University of Texas.

Responsive and Efficient Service.  At my firm, we utilize state-of the-art technology and cost-effective methods to provide legal services in a timely, client-oriented manner. As your lawyer, I will return your phone calls promptly, speak plainly, provide regular updates on the progress of your transaction, and provide a clear and understandable explanation of all fees.
