I moved to Houston in 2003 to work as an engineer at Shell. After a few years I decided to change career paths and attended law school at the University of Houston. The summer after my first year of law school I worked an internship with bankruptcy Judge Jeff Bohm followed by an internship at Adair & Myers, PLLC doing mostly bankruptcy work. I enjoy bankruptcy law because it involves a little bit of many areas of law and allows interaction with clients. A lot of practicing bankruptcy includes counseling your clients and helping them get a fresh start.
 
I returned to Adair & Myers, PLLC the next summer to continue my internship and began working as an associate attorney after passing the bar in November 2008.
 
In the fall of 2009 I left Adair & Myers, PLLC to begin working for my mentor, Adam Schachter, at the Schachter Law Firm, P.C. to continue working as a bankruptcy lawyer. In the fall of 2014 Adam Schachter decided to retire and I began the Dove Law Firm, PLLC to carry on the client-centered method of practicing bankruptcy law that had been instilled in me
 
I also volunteer my time to co-teach a semi-annual class for attorneys called Bankruptcy Basics . This class is put on through Lone Star Legal Aide. In order to attend the class the attorneys must agree to take a pro bono case.
