About Me

I chose the areas of family, probate, and elder law because they are the areas in which I can directly help people.  I did not want to use my legal skills to move money from one big company to another, I wanted to make a difference in the lives of individuals.  And I have done so. 


I do a lot of pro bono work through Houston Volunteer Lawyers and Fort Bend Lawyers Care.  The rest  of the time I keep my rates as low as I can while still making a living.


I look forward to using my skill and experience for your family.
