I received my law license in 2008 and joined Lee, Gober & Reyna in 2010. My practice focuses on representation of plaintiffs in personal injury cases and defendants in DWI criminal charges, including administrative license revocation hearings.

I was born in Brownwood, Texas and raised in Terrell, Texas where I lived until I started my undergraduate education at Texas A&M University. While there, I competed in and won 1st place (twice) in an international creative problem solving competition. I graduated magna cum laude from Texas A&M University in 2005 with a B.A. in Political Science.

Following my undergraduate education, I attended Baylor Law School. While there, I was appointed to the office of Technical Editor for the Baylor Law Review. I also authored a law review article which was published in the spring 2008 issue. While in law school, I interned for the Waco Innocence Project with a focus on exonerating the wrongly convicted.
I zealously advocate for my clients. I know when and how to stand up to protect my clients’ interests. I believe that a negotiated-outcome is an important and laudable goal, but (unlike some lawyers) I will not shy away from taking a case to trial.
