Except for the time it took to earn both undergraduate and law degrees from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, I have lived in Austin, Texas since the fourth grade. I’m proud to come from a long line of lawyers and public servants. I have spent over 20 years practicing Family Law, including divorce, complex property division, child custody, child support, collaborative law, adoptions, pre and post-nuptial agreements, family violence (Protective Orders), and virtually every aspect of the law affecting families. Since 2006, I have been Board Certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
When you need the services of a Family Law professional, there’s not a more important decision than who you choose as your representative. I believe that the lawyer should take the tone from the client and take care to understand what the client seeks to accomplish. The lawyer’s job is to help the client navigate the legal landscape and offer the client expert legal advice from which the client can choose to accomplish his or her goals. Getting this right requires providing the client as much explanation as is necessary to make the client feel comfortable and informed. That, and achieving the best results, is what separates good lawyers from great lawyers.
