About me

 


I began my tenure with Holmes, Diggs & Eames as a law clerk, and am now a family lawyer with the firm. I gained significant experience handling divorce, child custody, child custody modification, paternity and other family law cases, and I have first-chair trial experience in family law.  


I graduated from the University of Houston Law Center, where I pursued advocacy. I represented my school at the National Mock Trial Competition, where my team took second place in the country. I won many other advocacy honors, including championship victories in the Hippard Open Mock Trial Competition and the Tom Newhouse Mediation Competition, as well as being a finalist in the Blakely Butler Moot Court Competition and serving on the Board of Advocates.  I also represented my school at the ICC competition in Paris, France.  I was selected to the Order of the Barristers, a national honorary organization whose purpose is the encouragement of oral advocacy and brief writing skills through effective law school oral advocacy programs. I also served as the Chief Articles Editor of the Journal of Consumer and Commercial Law.  


I am a member of the Garland Walker Inn of Court, the Houston Family Law Section of the Houston Bar Association and the Montgomery County Bar Association. Additionally, I served on the Association of Women Attorneys Judicial Screening Committee from 2012 to 2014.  I was awarded AVVO’s Client’s Choice award for child custody in 2012. In 2015, I was selected as one of the “10 Best” Family Law Attorneys for Client Satisfaction for Texas by the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys.
