About me

My firm focuses in the areas of family law (divorce, child custody, child support, modification, enforcement), bankruptcy, immigration and wills. I am very passionate about what I do, and love helping people with their legal and financial issues. We are client-focused and results driven. We have many office locations in the DFW area to better serve our clients.

Legal disclaimer:  We are a debt relief agency and help people file for bankruptcy under the bankruptcy laws.
