Solving Family Law Problems since 1992!
I have practiced family law in Kingwood since 1992. Before that I clerked for Bivin & Brennan in Kingwood as a law student. About 5 years after being licensed as an attorney Bill Bivin & I formed Bivin & McNamara. In 2007 I opened McNamara Law Office.
I have 3 children who all attended Kingwood schools and a 4th who will soon. Her mother, Cathy, and I make our home in Kingwood and love the neighborhood. I spent many days coaching soccer teams as my other 3 children grew, and I look forward to doing that again.
Throughout my career, most of my cases have been in Harris and Montgomery counties. I have had cases in surrounding counties and even as far north as Greg County, TX.
I look forward to helping you with your family law problems.
