I am a Texan. I went to school here, I got my Juris Doctor here, and I founded my own practice here. Helping my fellow Texans overcome their legal burdens is simply what I do.
My journey into the legal profession began at the University of Texas at Austin. It was there that I attained my bachelor’s degree in Sports Management and minored in Educational Psychology. At a glance, these two fields may not seem to be related to the practice of law, but in reality, I learned a great deal about people — and, more importantly, helping people — because of my education at the University of Texas.
Fueled by everything I learned during my time as an undergraduate, I excitedly pushed forward into the workforce, ready to put my new degree to good use. It was only a year and a half later, though, that I decided my education wasn’t complete. I knew that I was meant for more — that I could help people in a bigger way. And so I went and got my law degree at Baylor Law School.
After Baylor, I reentered the workforce and started my legal career as a case manager at a small personal injury firm in Dallas. There, I quickly learned the ins and outs of this field of law while awaiting my chance to take the Texas Bar Exam. About a year later, I took the exam, passed it, and decided to return to my old stomping grounds of Waco, Texas. In Waco, I briefly offered my counsel to a financial services corporation but knew, once again, that I was meant to do so much more with my career. I decided it was time to truly jump in with both feet, and so I established my own law firm.
Since I established my firm, Jessica Warren and I have taken many opportunities to team up when it benefits a client. Specifically, we work together on cases relating to criminal defense, estate planning, business law, and family law.
