About me

I started my own practice in 1993.  I wanted to have a firm that was all about Family.  Family is my favorite thing... both personally and professionally.  My sons, grown now, were 4 and 5 years old when I started.  Protecting and nurturing them was my highest priority. 


The goal I have with regard to my clients is to fulfill their legal needs while doing as little harm as possible to the family relationship.


My thought is, after the hearing, trial or settlement, whatever the result, you still have to deal with your family.  They don't go away.  If divorced with children, you have to co-parent, attend sporting events, graduations, weddings, etc.  Often, you have developed a relationship with in-laws.


I practice primarily in Galveston County but I also have caseloads in Harris, Brazoria, Montgomery and Fort Bend.
