My passion has always been helping people. That’s why I pursued law as my profession – it’s an opportunity to help people through tough times in their lives. I work hard to remedy the injustices that exist in our communities, and my goal is to keep people moving forward in life.
I grew up in the Dallas, Texas, area. My parents both worked full-time, so I, along with my younger sister, spent a great deal of my childhood in daycares and after-school programs. My parents encouraged me to find hobbies that I was passionate about. My mom especially encouraged an interest in the arts, which eventually led me to learn how to play the piano. From age six all the way through high school, I was an avid piano player. My passion for music didn’t just stop in high school—while I was in college, I taught myself to play the guitar! In addition to this, I grasped onto basketball as an extracurricular activity, which quickly turned into my main passion. Eventually, my love for the sport earned me a basketball scholarship to Midwestern State University. After earning my bachelor’s degree at MSU, I went on to Oklahoma City University to earn my law degree.
Throughout my time in law school, I clerked at several different law firms. This gave me the opportunity to get a hands-on understanding of different practice areas, like family law, criminal defense, and immigration law. Throughout this time, I was able to figure out what I truly felt passionate about, which was trial law. After graduating from law school, I moved back to Dallas to work for a boutique law firm that specialized in trial law, specifically harmful and defective products. I soon began to realize that I had my own vision for how I could give back to the community; how I could have an impact on people’s lives. That’s when I started The Button Law Firm.
From that point on, I have made it my mission to help members of our community who have been wronged. From daycare injury and abuse to trucking accidents, I saw that these things were happening without consequence. To date, I have tried 21 jury trials, with many more on the agenda.
In addition to my law practice, I graduated from and served as a faculty member of a prestigious trial lawyer institute, Keenan Trial Institute, which allowed me to mentor other trial lawyers across the country.
Outside of practicing law, I continue to have several other passions. I enjoy sports and fitness; traveling and camping; hunting and fishing; but most importantly, spending time with friends, family, and my rescue dog Chuie. These things always provide me a sense of balance and perspective, which I have been able to carry with me into my law practice and the work that we do every day at The Button Law Firm.
