How I can help you

As a Texas lawyer for over 37 years (Board Certified in Commercial and Residential Real Estate Law), I have helped hundreds of clients begin new business ventures by forming corporations and limited liability companies. I can help SCORE clients understand how to negotiate and enter into contracts that will limit their personal liability. As a former general counsel to a national bank, I can help SCORE clients understand how they can fund their new businesses. Having taught business and real estate law for 23 years at SMU, I can help SCORE clients understand their legal and tax obligations.
