I have been practicing law in Johnson and Somervell counties since becoming a licensed attorney in 2004. The first four years were spent in private practice, two years with the Michael J. Rogers Law Firm and two years on my own with the Huffman Law Firm. I was exposed to a wide variety of legal matters, with the primary focus on Criminal Law and Family Law. In 2006 – 2007, I was awarded the Johnson County Attorney Ad-Litem of the Year Award for my representation of the interests of children in Family Law cases.
In May 2008, I began my career as an Assistant District Attorney for Johnson and Somervell counties, specializing in the prosecution of crimes against children. In 2013, I was assigned to the 18th District Court of Johnson County as the chief prosecutor and, for the next six years, was able to practice almost exclusively in front of Justice John E. Neill.
In 2015, I earned the distinction of being Board Certified in Criminal Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, an honor that less than 1% of all active attorneys in the State of Texas have attained.*based on statistics provided by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in November 2019*
In 2019, I earned an additional distinction of being Board Certified in Criminal Trial Law by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. Only 35 active attorneys in the State of Texas have achieved this recognition. *based on statistics provided by the National Board of Trial Advocacy in November 2019*
In May 2019, I was assigned to the 249th District Court of Johnson and Somervell counties as the chief prosecutor, where I remain today.
Thank you for taking the time to read this short biography of my legal career. I hope that you continue to learn more about me and my qualifications as the Republican Primary approaches.
