About me

I have currently been practicing law for 25 years in the family law and real estate law field.  I like the small firm atmosphere and personal results vs. large firm.  I practice in Harris and surrounding counties. I owned a title company for 20 years and represented CTX Mortgage company for 10 years.  I was the first female judge appointed to the City of Pasadena Municipal Court and currently hold the position of Municipal Judge for three small cities.  As a municipal judge, I preform weddings most weekends, so I stay really busy.  I also hold a Director on the Porter SUD, Montgomery County Development District, and other community organizations. 

I have a wonderful team to assist my clients and make sure that their experience with the legal system goes smoothly and that they are treated with respect.
