Character Matters

Character Matters® is our foundational maxim; our core values its roots. Brown Fox was founded on the belief that our pursuit of these values leads to a successful law firm, lawyer, leader, and person. We hire, make decisions, represent clients, interact in conflict, and strive to lead our lives devoted to these principles.


Integrity

The Texas Lawyer’s Creed calls for lawyers to adhere to “the highest levels of professionalism” in our practices. We agree.  We strive to act with high-integrity—honesty, ethics, and strong moral foundation—in every relationship and seize opportunities to celebrate high-integrity leadership in our team.

Servant Leadership

We believe that great leaders rise through service, and the legacy of a successful leader is marked by building up and protecting others.

Excellence

We hire the top talent available and reinforce a culture that expects every team member to bring his or her A-game every step of the way. Our goal is to bring excellence to the table in every encounter, whether negotiation, pleading, transaction, or trial. Our clients should expect nothing less.

Impact

We are not fans of the status quo, nor do we aim to blend in with the legal crowd. We maximize and leverage our talents to have a positive and lasting impact in every matter for our clients and in the community.

Since becoming a legal assistant, 35 years ago, I’ve been collecting pencils from places I have traveled and from places my co-workers have traveled. They are from all over the world, each with a unique shape and all are a reminder that everything we do in life will leave a mark, so I try to be conscious of that in my everyday actions.

While some say the pen is mightier than the sword, my son Peter disagrees.  But together, we enjoy using our own swords (or “chisels”) to craft pens and other wooden objects on a lathe.

Carved into this walking stick given to me by my father are various images of memorable events, words, and scenes of my life and other moments that we shared together.  I am grateful for my family and one of my goals as an attorney is to serve my clients with the same high level of care and responsiveness that I would provide to my own family.

Long before stepping foot in a courtroom, I worked as a licensed installer of fire suppression systems in commercial kitchens.  While work is now air-conditioned, that experience cultivated a strong work ethic and unique insight into the construction industry.

I will always carry my African and Congolese identity with pride.

I was born in Chicago and grew up in the City, not leaving it until I went to law school at Georgetown in Washington, D.C. After law school I returned to Chicago for my first job as an attorney, so the City and its citizens molded me both as a person and as a professional. I am extremely proud of my home town and thus appreciate the pride Texans have in this great State.

Called dandia in Gujarati, these sticks are used in a traditional Indian folk dance celebrating the Hindu holiday Navrati. Dandia represent the wealth of culture and tradition central to my upbringing, and further embody my love of dancing. The resemblance to drum sticks is a nod to my years as a percussionist.

I get goosebumps every time I think of that trip to the Theater of Dreams for the Manchester Derby. A trip worth taking, even if you are not a soccer fan.

This is one of the most important pieces of cave diving equipment. It snaps onto the line, pointing in the direction of the nearest exit. It is thoughtfully designed to provide unambiguous directional information in all conditions, with or without the advantage of sight. When lost in a cave, as in life, I have found it is quite useful to have reliable truth within arm’s reach.

Through the Dallas Junior League, I’ve learned so much about the city I grew up in! Teaming up with inspiring and empowering women to give back to the local Dallas community continues to be one of the most enriching and fulfilling experiences.
