About me

I have been a Texas trial lawyer since 1982. I am board certified in family law, AV Preeminent rated by Martindale, voted a Texas Super Lawyer for 6 six consecutive years, and am well known throughout the Dallas and surrounding area legal community. I practice law in Cook, Collin, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Kaufman, Rockwall, and Tarrant Counties primarily but also travel anywhere in Texas that my clients have a case which needs my level of expertise, reputation and experience, especially for trial work and serious negotiation skills.

My clients are individuals in need of an experienced family law attorney for all services ranging from complicated divorces, child custody issues, enforcements for violation of prior orders, modifications of prior orders, premarital agreements, mediation, collaborative law cases, or simply needing advice regarding how to proceed in the event of a divorce.

I authored a book entitled "How to Win the Marriage Gamble" that explains from a divorced, divorced lawyer's perspective, what it takes to stay happily married and thereby how to avoid divorce. Great spouses don't divorce, so we need to learn how to become better spouses to stay married for a lifetime. The Marriage Gamble is a complete guide explaining the pitfalls that we all experience and how to avoid them. Go to for more information.
