About Me

I know from firsthand experience the ups and downs of going through a messy divorce matter. I strive to save people from the full "experience." I try to help clients through the family law process as painlessly as possible, keeping their ultimate goals in mind. Sometimes the only way is the hard way, and when put into that situation, I will push for my client's position with vigor. However, even while pushing I remain open to a resolution that allows my client to move on with their life.



I have been practicing primarily family law since 1995 and am board certified in family law. I also have experience handling personal injury, estate planning, civil litigation, and probate matters. I have had my own office since 1998 and have handled approximately 1000 family law matters over the last 13+ years. My office is well equipped to handle most family law matters, from the simple to the very complex. We also handle collaborative family law matters and adoptions.


 


My office is centrally located in Grapevine, Texas and we handle cases in Tarrant, Dallas, and Denton Counties, including the municipalities of Grapevine, Southlake, Colleyville, Bedford, Hurst, Euless, Arlington, North Richland Hills, Richland Hills, Keller, Haltom City, Watauga, Mansfield, Fort Worth, Northlake, Westlake, Trophy Club, Flower Mound, Lewisville, Highland Village, Argyle, Double Oak, Denton, Krum, Carrollton, Coppell, Farmers Branch, Dallas, Richardson, Garland, Mesquite, Irving, and Grand Prairie.


 


On the personal side, I am married with 3 growing boys that do their best to keep me from working too much. Interests outside of the law revolve around weekend football games and World Cup soccer events.
