I have practiced law in Texas since 1985, and began specializing in employment benefit claims in 1998. These benefit claims are usually governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). I represent individuals who have been denied health care benefits, retirement benefits, disability benefits, or life insurance benefits. I also handle insurance coverage claims for insureds (companies and individuals) that are not governed by ERISA. I have been board certified in consumer and commercial law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization since 2001. My law firm has been ranked Tier 1 in San Antonio by U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” in the specialty of ERISA litigation since 2013. For more information, please see my website.
