    After graduating from Baylor University (B.B.A. 1989, J.D. 1992), John worked for a medium sized firm in Houston for 6 years, 4 as an associate and 2 as a partner, then started his own firm in 1998.

    At Baylor, he was named to the GTE Southwest Conference All Academic Athletic team while lettering in track in 10,000 meters. John also received the Legal Professionalism Award from Baylor Law School in 1991. He ran a 2:46 marathon a year after graduating from law school, then progressively ran slower times he will not divulge.

    He has been named to Texas Super Lawyers for seven years in a row (2010 through 2017), and was nominated and inducted into the Texas Bar Foundation in 2006.

    John has tried three cases alleging brain injury to verdict and handled dozens of other TBI cases in Texas and a few in other states. He has also tried commercial and property cases to jury verdicts seeking 7 and 8 figure damages, which were not awarded. In recent years he has tried fiduciary cases to juries for defendants and a plaintiff, to defense verdicts when defending and to a 7 figure settlement on the plaintiff side.

    He divides his time between severe injury cases, trucking and transportation cases, fiduciary litigation, real estate and construction disputes, insurance coverage claims and contractual indemnity claims.

    John has enjoyed picking juries from panels as large as 100 members for two days, in counties all over Texas. He has also handled complex injury and coverage cases outside the state of Texas.

    After turning off both of his iPhones, John enjoys spending time with his two sons, running, quail hunting and backpacking, especially in Big Bend National Park.
