As an undergraduate, I attended Texas A&M University on an Army ROTC scholarship. Upon graduation and commission as a Second Lieutenant, I was granted an education delay which allowed me to postpone active service and attend law school. I completed my Juris Doctorate at the Villanova University School of Law in Philadelphia and was accepted into the Army JAG Corps.
Upon acceptance in the Army JAG Corps, I attended The Judge Advocate General's Officer Basic Course in Charlottesville, VA, where I graduated as a member of the Commandant's list. My first duty station was Fort Bragg, NC, where I served as an operational and administrative law attorney for the United States Army Special Forces Command. After two years in the Special Operations Community, I did an intra-post transfer and served as a prosecutor in the XVIIIth Airborne Corps. It was during my time as prosecutor that I was first exposed to the military's disability system and noticed the many gaps in representation for injured servicemembers. After completing my time at Fort Bragg, I PCSed to West Point, NY where I served as the Chief Claims attorney and as a Special Victims Counsel until deciding to leave the Army and open my own practice representing injured servicemembers and veterans.
