About me

Divorce is a confusing, painful, and difficult experience for adults and children alike. I understand the deeply personal concerns faced by my clients, and I am committed to providing caring, compassionate, and personal services. I practice family law exclusively, and I have been Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization since 2001. A former social worker, I am also trained in Collaborative Law and I have been a qualified family mediator since 1999.
