_I Pledge To Work Hard As Judge Of the Bexar County Court At Law No. 3
County Court At Law No. 3
County Court at Law No. 3 is a general jurisdiction court, but by the Local Rules of the Statutory County Courts at Law of Bexar County, Texas, it is one of only 3 courts assigned to the civil division. This court handles cases involving breach of contract, business disputes, property damage, personal injury, various kinds of writs, and appeals from Justice of the Peace and Municipal Courts. In addition, it has the jurisdiction to hear cases that are assigned from the district courts, which means that it most likely will be assigned family law cases.
I graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a JD degree, completed my license as a CPA, and proceeded to clerk for 2 federal district court (trial) judges in Houston, Texas. I have been in private practice in San Antonio for almost 30 years. During that time, I have had the privilege of representing individuals, businesses and other entities before federal and state courts, on subject matters including business disputes, property damage, grandparents rights, marital dissolution to fraud, embezzlement and preferential and fraudulent transfers.
While I am licensed as a lawyer and a CPA, I have not rested on that alone. In order to maintain my current education, I have maintained my membership in the College of the State Bar, applied for, studied and passed the examination for board certification in Family Law, and have served as a legal educator in various seminars. I have also tried to help others by serving for over 15 years on numerous professional boards, including every office of the Family Law Section of the San Antonio Bar Association and most recently on the Bexar County Dispute Resolution Center Advisory Board.
My work was recognized by my peers who awarded me an A-V Preeminent® rating, which is the highest that can be awarded for professional ethics and competence.
While I have worked hard in the legal profession, I have also been active in service to my church in various ministries, to community organizations such as the boy scouts or serving on the advisory board for Catholic Charities and as a volunteer with the Community Justice Program and Texas Lawyers for Texas Veterans.
