    “Feeling absolutely blessed (and totally relieved) that I passed the Texas bar exam. I am now officially licensed to practice law in the great State of Texas.

    Much thanks (complete understatement) goes out to my wife, my kids, my parents and the rest of my family for their constant sacrifices, prayers, love and support. Similarly, to those friends and classmates who helped and encouraged me along the way to achieving this milestone in my life and new career. This was a TEAM EFFORT!

    Thank you.”
