About Me

I am a member of the State Bar of Texas who has left private practice for full-time writing and research. In addition to spearheading The Lawyer's Guide to Internet Research, I am currently a columnist for and The Internet Legal Research Newsletter. As a freelance journalist since 1982, I have written about legal, Internet and general interest topics for national, regional and online publications, including the American Bar Association Journal, USA Today, Family PC, Diversion, The Compleat Lawyer, Real Estate Today, Texas Monthly, Houston Business Journal, Houston Press, Houston Sidewalk and Time Out New York. Links to some of my articles online appear here.

Professional Background

Although I have worked in and with large firms in Houston, Washington, D.C., and New York City, my background is in small firm practice. I began my career cycling through the real estate, litigation and corporate sections of a small but prominent Houston firm. I left that for solo law practice, which I maintained for 16 years, focusing on small business matters, wills, probate and non-profit arts group. My work included researching and drafting trial and appellate briefs for other solo practitioners. During this time I also taught legal writing at The University of Houston Law Center and business law (under the auspices of political science) at Rice University. I also produced and taught Self-Employment 101, a program of seminars for the public on the legal basics of self-employment.

Educational Background

I am an honors graduate of The University of Texas School of Law, where I was a member of Texas Law Review, the Order of the Coif and a variety of oddly named co-ed softball teams. My undergraduate degree is a B.A. with highest honors in German from Southern Methodist University, where I was a member of Phi Beta Kappa and Mortar Board. Before that, I attended Highland Park High School in Dallas, Texas and the Theodolinden-Gymnasium, Munich, Germany.
