About me

I understand that a divorce can be one of the most overwhelming experiences in a person's life. I am a strong advocate of Collaborative Law which helps my clients maintain their dignity and privacy, while focusing on their true goals and interests. The collaborative approach makes it easier for parents to work cooperatively and in the best interest of their children after their divorce. This approach also helps my clients to make the best financial decisions. I treat my clients with respect and compassion.  I take pride in my attention to detail, my preparedness and my knowledge of the law.

I have been certified as a Family Law Specialist by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization since 1987 and a Qualified Attorney Mediator since 1991.

My husband and I live in Plano. We have two wonderful two adult children and four totally adorable grandchildren.
