I have been practicing law for over 17 years in Austin, with an emphasis on people and families, focusing principally on family law and divorce. I am Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
Having gone through a divorce, and raising 2 children as a single mother, I founded my firm based on my personal philosophy: genuine empathy for men and women seeking help. I focus on understanding each client's unique needs, and strive to make complex emotional and legal situations comprehensible. I believe that tranparent communication is critical, and many of my clients report a great sense of comfort and relief while working with me.
I received my law degree from Albany Law School in 1996, after completing my final year at the University of Texas Law School in Austin. I then founded this firm in Round Rock in 1997.
I grew up in New Hampshire. I proudly served a four year tour of duty in the United States Navy, simultaneously putting myself through the University of Mississippi. After graduating from college and leaving the Navy, I was a junior high school teacher. I then relocated to Albany, NY, and while raising my family there, became an entrepreneur, starting several small businesses, before deciding to go to law school, going heavily in debt to fund it.
I love to read and listen to music. I have 6 wonderful grandchildren, a great dog and a fantastic husband.

Patricia was opposing counsel on a recent divorce matter involving children. I found her to be very reasonable and easy to work with, while still steadfastly representing her client. She has a very no-nonsense, common sense approach to matters, which is refreshing. Although the case was a difficult one, we were able to settle it in an amicable fashion after a lot of hard work!.
