After graduating from Lake Dallas High School, he joined the United States Army and was both the driver and gunner of an M1 Main Battle Tank. His time in the Army took him overseas and instilled several important qualities. First, Gerald learned that attention to detail is critically important. In the Army, the importance of paying attention to detail can lead to life-or-death situations. As a family law attorney, paying attention to detail is vital to the lives of Gerald’s clients. He does not take such trust lightly. The second quality Gerald developed in the Army was the love of fighting. Gerald enjoys the battles offered by the practice of family law.
