I am a retired lawyer and freelance writer with more than 40 years experience researching, analyzing and writing about businesses, large and small, and important episodes in their histories. I have intensive experience writing about legal, business, technical, scientific and medical topics for both general and specialized audiences. As an adjunct professor at a national law school, I wrote and taught a practice course in establishing and proving economic damages. I practiced law as an associate, partner or solo practitioner in Houston for more than 40 years. I earned a JD at the University of Texas in 1971, and a BA in 1964.
