also known as Vic

About me

First and foremost, I am a Christ follower. I am blessed to be married to a sensational wife and we have two beautiful children.


 


Deciding to become a family attorney only seemed natural after handling my own divorce prior to becoming an attorney. My divorce lasted three years due to the incompetency of my attorney and I was forced to finish the divorce myself. I knew after my experience that I did not want others to go through what I did so I am here to make sure my clients' rights are protected.


 


One of my favorite parts of being a family law attorney is handling adoptions. This is the most joyous part of our field. I have been a volunteer attorney for National Adoption Day since becoming an attorney and I also adopted my son.


 


Finally, in addition to being an attorney, I am also the Associate Judge for the Town of Flower Mound. I am a former Fort Worth Police Officer and also a former soldier in the U.S. Army. My experience in the Army allows me to smoothly handle military family matters.
