After graduating from Texas A&M in 1984 with a BS in Civil Engineering, I was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps.

I was admitted to the Texas Bar in November 1992.
As a judge advocate in the Marine Corps I served as trial counsel, defense counsel, legal assistance officer, and staff judge advocate. I prosecuted or defended Marines and Sailors in over 300 special and general courts-martial.
After retiring from the Marine Corps in 2004, I served as an Assistant United States Attorney in Laredo, Texas in the Southern District of Texas from 2004 to 2014. As a federal prosecutor I handled immigration, drug crimes, firearms offenses, kidnapping, and public corruption cases. I tried over 30 jury trials as well as handled over a thousand sentencing hearings, magistrate misdemeanor cases, detention, identity, and removal hearings. I presented over 1,000 cases before a grand jury.
