An avid media hog, and self promoter, he is quite the "brunt" of many local lawyers about him appearing on local television and in the local media even speaking about cases which he is not trying. He is also presently under indictment out of Nolan County on a felony charge. He also has within the past 24 months had a strong alcohol problem for which he had to go to rehab.
