I am an experienced tax, estate planning, trust, probate and estate, corporate, and business attorney-CPA.  I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree, major in accounting, in 1973 and a Master in Professional Accounting degree, concentration in tax accounting, in 1978.  I received a J.D. degree in 1981 from the University of Houston College of Law.  I am currently a sole practitioner in Austin, Texas, and I serve as General Counsel and Corporate Secretary of a closely held venture capital firm in Austin, Texas and its portfolio companies that specialize in forming, commercializing, and managing companies for the purpose of converting institutional and university-based biotech, life sciences, and other technologies into high return ventures.   

I am licensed to practice law and public accounting in Texas, and I am Board Certified in Tax Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.  I am a member of the State Bar of Texas and the Travis County Bar Association.  I am presently admitted to practice in Texas courts and the United States Tax Court, and I have been given an "av" rating by Martindale-Hubbell, Inc.

My work experience includes two years as a corporate controller and six years in public accounting as a tax specialist prior to becoming a lawyer (including four years with an international public accounting firm in Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston) working primarily with oil and gas, real estate, and high net worth individual clients.  I was in the private practice of law full time from October, 1981 to April, 1990.  For about a year, from April, 1990 through February, 1991, I served as the corporate general counsel and chief financial officer of a closely-held oilfield service and manufacturing company.  I resumed my private law practice in February of 1991. I have been a partner or member of large general practice law firms in Austin and Fort Worth, as well as Of Counsel for a medium size Austin law firm. My legal practice and public accounting experience has concentrated in the areas of corporate and securities law, mergers and acquisitions, and business and estate planning; Federal income, estate, and gift tax planning, compliance, and litigation practice; probate and trust administration law; tax-exempt organizations; Texas state tax planning and administrative practice; and general business, oil, gas, and other minerals, and real estate law related to these other areas. 

I have been a lecturer on business, securities, tax, and estate planning, probate, and trust law topics.  I have also been an instructor for the law subjects of the Becker CPA Review Course.
