This Dallas attorney began his illustrious career in the structured settlement factoring field more than 15 years ago. He has served in leadership positions for the National Association of Settlement Purchasers, and played a pivotal role in implementing and modifying legislation in this legal area on both the federal and state level.
I am an attorney practicing in Dallas at the law firm Nesbitt, Vassar & McCown, LLP. Prior to joining the firm in 2012, I was General Counsel of a factoring company for 11 years. I was on the board of directors of the National Association of Settlement Purchasers (NASP), and served as president of NASP from 2010 – 2012.
I started in the structured settlement factoring business in the late 1990s as national legislative counsel and director of government relations for a company with a large portfolio of structured settlement contracts. In that role, I worked first-hand on developing the state and federal legislation that is in place today. I have personally worked the halls of Congress and several states to either implement structured settlement transfer legislation or modify existing legislation.
I am a frequent commentator on structured settlement factoring issues on the Legal Broadcast Network. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from the University of California, Irvine (1988) and a Juris Doctorate from the University of Houston (1992).
