Carl is a Family and Estate Planning attorney who joined the firm in 2021. He began his career as an attorney in the United States Air Force as a Judge Advocate General at Myrtle Beach AFB in South Carolina and was later stationed at Andrews AFB in Maryland. After 5 years with the Air Force, he moved back to his home State of Texas to practice law with his dad, who was in private practice in San Antonio with several other law partners. His primary practice at the firm was Family and Estate Planning law with his specialty being contested divorces, child custody disputes, will contests and Guardianships. Litigation and the courtroom have always been Carl’s favorite part of practicing law.

For the past 10 years he worked for the Office of the Attorney General. He worked in San Antonio for 7 years as an Assistant Attorney General where he was recognized one year as “The Assistant Attorney General of the Year”. He then got promoted in 2018 to be the Managing Attorney in Beaumont, Texas. As an Assistant Attorney General, he represented the State of Texas in the establishment and enforcement of child support. He spent most of his time litigating these cases in Child Support Court. In 2021, Carl was ready to expand his law practice areas and was looking for a new challenge. He chose to move to Houston as his wife of 25 years wanted to move closer to both of their adult children and the Law Firm of Bryan Fagan offered him a position as Senior Attorney. His son is at Texas A & M and his daughter is at Houston Baptist University.

Carl’s free time is spent traveling with his family to Beaches, Lakes, Mountains, and resorts to enjoy family time, golf, swimming, lazy rivers, fantastic food, and the great outdoors.
