About Me

I have practiced primarily in the area of family law since beginning my pracitice with a respected family law firm in the Dallas area after receiving my license in 2006.  Since that time, I have successfully handled complex child custody cases and contested divorce cases.  While I have also assisted many clients in reaching amicable resolutions to their cases through both mediation and informal settlement methods, I have been found by both judges and colleagues to be a fierce litigator who represents her clients zelously and agressively in the courtroom.


 


I have both pursued and defended against cases presented to the appellate courts with a high level of success. Appellate cases require a unique skill set not held by every attorney.  Attention to detail and excellent writing skills are key to a triumphant appellate case.  Clients can rest assured that their appeal will be resolved with the best possible outcome when I am handling it.


 


I pride myself in being accessible to my clients so that they can have their questions answered and their concerns addressed during the most challenging time in their lives.  While I frequently use email to stay in contact with my clients and answer simple questions, I understand that there are many times when nothing can replace a voice on the phone.  I make it a priority to be available to clients when I am not in court and to return call as soon as possible.


 


 I understand that when people come to a family law attorney for help, they are placing their family into that person's hands.  This is a responsibility that I take very seriously in my practice.  It is my goal to help each of my clients achieve the best possible results for themselves and for their families while simultaneously setting their minds at ease until their case reaches its conclusion.
