About me

I am a a partner with GoransonBain and serve divorcing and separating clients in Plano, Dallas, Denton and all of Collin county. As a divorce and family lawyer, I recognize that divorce is a complete unknown to most individuals, I work to create a peace of mind with my clients by explaining the legal process and help clients navigate their way to a hopeful future. I have found the best outcome in a divorce comes from developing a solid game plan, I assist my clients to  identify their goals and develop a strategy to accomplish them. I am committed to managing clients’ most important assets—including children, money, and property—with dignity and respect.


As a financial planner for high-level executives prior to practicing  family law, I have a thourough understanding of employee benefits, stocks, and pensions. My knowledge in cash flow analysis and tax returns helps clients to divide assets fairly and move forward with security and confidence.


I passionately advocate for my clients’ best interests, whether that means reaching a settlement out of court or going to trial. Recently, I helped a client secure primary custody for his two children by winning a jury trial by 12-0.
