Texas Board Certified Family Law Specialist. An experienced attorney who can handle the details.
I am a Texas Board Certified Family Law attorney and have been practicing for over 32 years in the Houston area. I received my Doctor of Jurisprudence from Houston College of Law, formerly Soouth Texas College of Law. I was admitted into the Stae Bar in 1985. I am also licensed to practice Law in the Florida, Hawaii, and Oregon. I am a member of the College of State Bar of Texas, Houston Bar Association-Family Law section, Gulf Coast Family Law Specialist Association, Association of Women Attorneys, and Texas Academy of Family Law.
My outside activities include yoga, bicycling, and am a past member of the Contemporary Arts Museum and the Houston Ballet Guild.
I am skilled in handling complex legal issues, including custody and property cases. I am dedicated to crafting creative amicable solutions, when practical, to avoid the unnecessary cost of litigation.
I am very well versed in interstate divorce cases and custody disputes. And I am a devoted advocate for my clients. I understand the emotions and turmoil that can accompany family law cases.
