Stephen focuses his practice on handling personal injury litigation and complex business disputes.

Stephen started his legal career clerking for the Honorable Michael H. Schneider in the Eastern District of Texas. During his clerkship, he was responsible for hundreds of complex civil and criminal cases and participated in trials ranging from product liability to the most complex business disputes. The breadth and depth of that experience provided the foundation for his development and success as a trial lawyer and appellate advocate.

Building on that experience, Stephen has obtained favorable judgments and settlements for clients. Those victories have led his peers to recognize him on the Thomson Reuters Super Lawyers – Texas Rising Stars listing (2019 -2020), as well being honored as by D Magazine as one of the “Best Lawyers Under 40” (2020). Never one to rest on his laurels, though, Stephen continues to strategically and aggressively pursue the best possible outcome for his clients.
