What My Blog is All About

As a Texas attorney practicing for 25 years, I have litigated all manner of wrongful death cases. I use this blog as a place to write opinion / editorial articles on a variety of topics that catch my interest and as a means of sharing news stories relevant to wrongful death accidents.

I think the overwhelming majority of people are unaware just how common these types of accidents are and I hope this blog raises awareness to a rather serious public safety concern. However, this blog is simply a means for me to share my opinions and I would recommend that anyone who is considering seeking legal counsel should contact their family attorney.
