About me

I am a Family Law lawyer concentrating on Divorce, Custody, Child Support, Spousal Support, Complex Property Divisions, Pre and Post Marital Agreements, Enforcement, Modification, Stepparent Adoptions, and issues involving family violence including Protective Orders and Assault.


I aggressively protect my client's interest in heated custody cases, child support and spousal support hearings, and complex property trials. Yet, I am a strong advocate for alternative dispute resolution using my excellent negotiation skills in mediation and collaborative law cases when the client prefers to keeps the case out of court.


Approximately 4 years ago, I became a certified mediator, and now my peers regularly hire me to mediate their family law cases.  I am also often appointed by the courts as a mediator.


My wife and I love sailing the British Virgin Islands, spending weekends at the lake, and are avid supporters of our local professional teams, including the Allen Americans, FC Dallas, and Frisco Roughriders.


I look forward to successfully guiding you through a difficult time in your life.
