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.

Explore Our Team in Depth

Prior to entering the legal profession, I worked in my family’s farming business, growing corn, soybeans, and wheat. Although my time on a tractor is considerably less now, I still carry the business acumen and grit born out of entrepreneurship.

After playing various other youth sports, both of our sons decided that lacrosse was their favorite sport. Although I had no prior exposure to lacrosse, I enjoyed learning about the sport with them and coached my younger son’s teams for several years. It was a great bonding experience for all of us. Both boys played through high school and on the club team at UT as well.

From home projects to crafting, I have a pure love of working with my hands to create something fun and beautiful. Recently, I’ve been making painted signs for home décor.

From the magic of Harry Potter, the romance by Nicholas Sparks, and the thrill of John Grisham books, my love for reading is vast. I’ve loved to read for as long as I can remember and many of my most content moments involve getting lost in a good book.

Baylor University will always hold a special place in my heart and life. Baylor taught me important life lessons and brought me many lifelong friendships. Cheering for Baylor is a family tradition that I love sharing with those I love the most. Sic Em Bears!

From the moment I learned to weld, I was enamored with metalworking. Designing and building a welding project requires problem-solving creativity when taking an idea and turning it into a functional product.

I got this magnet when I did my first (and last) marathon. It reminds me daily to have the courage to challenge myself to get out of my comfort zone and try something new, even if it’s just once.

Traveling and exploring is my favorite thing to do in my time off. One of my favorite trips was to Ice Alaska to watch international ice sculptors work amid the northern lights.

Spartan Races are the ultimate in obstacle-course races. They are a brutal mental and physical challenge – combining long-distance running with dozens of grueling obstacles. For some reason, there are also incredibly fun. This proves I completed the Spartan Trifecta – finishing the three different races of 4, 7, and 13 miles in one calendar year. These races give me the motivation to stay in shape, and I hope there are many more Trifectas in my future.

This globe, which sits in my home study, serves as a reminder that I’m a spatial and temporal being, privileged to be in my particular place and time, and charged with stewarding each as best as I can.

My son bought this geode for me with money I gave him to buy himself something on a field trip in 2nd grade.  It reminds me of the Gift of the Magi and the gifts of love and giving.

Although I strive for perfection in golf, I mainly experience mediocrity with occasional flashes of brilliance. The best thing about golf is the quality time I get to spend with my dad and kids. It truly is a lifetime sport to be enjoyed in many beautiful places.
