I focus my practice on white-collar criminal and regulatory matters before federal courts and government agencies. I defend corporate and individual clients in high-stakes investigations, civil enforcement actions and criminal proceedings brought by a variety of federal and state regulators, primarily involving allegations of healthcare fraud, securities fraud, insider trading, FCPA violations, tax fraud, pay-to-play schemes and antitrust violations.
I am also an accomplished appellate lawyer with successful results in state and federal appeals before courts in Texas and other jurisdictions across the country. I am one of the firm’s go-to lawyers for researching and briefing dispositive motions in the most challenging, high-exposure cases, or when clients need a skilled analysis of complex procedural and evidentiary issues that may determine the outcome of a case.
Before joining Gray Reed, I was a Professor of Law at Texas Tech University School of Law and focused my teaching and scholarship on matters of federal civil procedure, evidence, and legal writing.
