Wes spent his years of undergraduate and law school honing the skills necessary to serve others. After growing up in the east Dallas suburbs, Wes attended the University of Texas at Austin and graduated magna cum laude in 2016 from the School of Journalism with a degree from the McCombs School of Business. In Austin, Wes developed his passion for tackling public issues. He wrote stories on campus news and Texas politics for The Daily Texan, UT’s nationally recognized newspaper. During the 84th legislative session, he interned with State Representative Ryan Guillen serving House District 31 (the Rio Grande Valley) and its constituents as a media liaison.
During law school, Wes focused on his advocacy skills in and out of the courtroom. He graduated from the Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law and earned the rank of Master Advocate for his participation in SMU’s Board of Advocates. Wes earned merits for his writing skills in advocacy, and was the Associate Editor of the International Law Review Association.
To hone his oral advocacy skills in the courtroom, Wes competed in mock trial competitions on and off campus. He represented SMU in the school’s premier mock trial team at the National Trial Competition, where the team competed against other law schools from across the nation. During his third year of law school, Wes served as a judicial intern for Federal Magistrate Judge Jeffrey Cureton of the Northern District of Texas.
Wes is the latest attorney to join Shamieh Law and is eager to serve his community.
