About me

I have been practicing family law exclusively in Austin for 20 years.  I am board certified and specialize in helping clients through divorce, child custody, complex property division, adoption and modification cases.  My expertise is helping my clients find solutions to their complicated family law issues, whether in the courtroom or in settlement negotiations.


I am a native Texan, and grew up in West Texas.  I graduated from the University of Texas School of Law.  When I'm out of the office, I love to travel and take advantage of the live music in Austin.  I have one daughter who is in high school, a beautiful chow mix rescue dog, and a cat.
