About me

I have been a Texas lawyer for over 25 years.   Like many people, my professional life has changed over time.  In the first phase of my career I served as in-house counsel at two Fortune 500 companies where I supervised a large caseload of environmental litigation and was directly responsible for environmental claims and regulatory environmental compliance.  In the second phase of my career I chose to focus my practice in areas where I could have a more immediate impact on the personal lives and well-being of my clients.  This is why my focus now is family law, where I know I am helping my clients through an emotionally difficult time.   My strength is in taking the time to listen to my clients, to personally connect with them so I can understand their concerns, and to help them make well-informed decisions.
