EDUCATION AND CAREER EXPERIENCES.
I graduated from St. Mary's University in San Antonio TX., and have been
practicing State and federal law in Texas since 1980.  During that time, I
have been employed as an Assistant City Attorney (McAllen, 1981); an
Assistant Attorney General (Consumer Protection Division, McAllen and
San Antonio, 1981-83); an Assistant Criminal District Attorney (Rio
Grande City and Brownsville, 1983-2005); and am presently an indigent
criminal appellate attorney (Brownsville) and contract attorney for Starr
County (Rio Grande City).
