About me

I represent men and women from all different walks of life. Every client is different and every client must be treated as a valued individual. I have 26 years of experience practicing family law  in Dallas, Tarrant, Collin,  Denton, Ellis, Kaufman, Rockwall and other counties throughout the State of Texas. I have even had the opportunity to travel to other states representing my Texas clients.

 Along with my caring and attentive staff, I use my experience and skill in representing you with all I have to give. I will always tell you the truth about what I believe can be accomplished in your particular situation. I will always listen to your concerns, and will guide you so that you and your children can achieve the best result possible. Family law situations- divorce, paternity and, custody disputes- can be  the most difficult times in a person's life  My staff and I recognize that , and we work to make this time a little less trying for each client.


Outside of my practice I  serve on the Board of the Family Section of the Dallas Bar Association, I am a volunteer mediator with DCAP the mediation service of the Denton County Bar Association, and constantly am learning more so that you can have the most effective and knowedgable representation.I serve on several commitees and boards of community organizations.  I am also an actor, and perform in many theatres throughout the metroplex. This causes me to step into the lives of many different personalities, and actually helps me understand how others perceive situations, including lawyers, clients and Judges.


Please  contact me, and I will be glad to speak to you about helping you with your sitution.
