Professional Bio

I am an experienced court-appointed fiduciary frequently recommended by regulators to serve in proceedings where there is concern that alleged fraudsters will dissipate the remaining assets. A former enforcement lawyer with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), I have served as either the receiver, receiver’s counsel, or trustee, in various federal and state proceedings in the life settlement sector, fraudulent securities offerings, EB-5 offerings, and general commercial litigation. In addition to my fraud and recovery practice, I advise clients on the legal and regulatory aspects of their commercial and transactional opportunities. My practice covers an enterprise’s entire life-cycle, including formation, capitalization, governance, domestic and international transactions, mergers and acquisitions, reporting requirements, and regulatory enforcement. I serve on the board of the Dallas Hispanic Law Foundation. My transactional practice focuses on M&A, securities regulation, and corporate governance. I represents buyers and sellers in energy, telecommunications, healthcare, food, real estate services, manufacturing, and financial services sectors. I have advised issuers, underwriters, broker dealers, investment advisers and investment companies regarding securities offerings and regulatory compliance matters; and represented market participants before the SEC, the Texas State Securities Board and the Financial Industry regulatory Authority (FINRA). I complements my legal skills with a Master in Business Administration and a prior career in managerial accounting. My ability to analyze situations from multiple legal and business perspectives enables me to craft pragmatic, often novel, solutions that are designed to maximize value and promote dispute avoidance/resolution.
