About me

Patricia Dixon (Trisha) graduated from the University of Texas in 2007 with honors with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a minor in Social Work.  She then attended Baylor University School of Law where she received her Juris Doctor in 2010. 


 


Since 2010, Trisha has been practicing exclusively family law with a concentration in divorce, modificaions, enforcements, custody issues and disputes, child support, and drafting of marital agreements, including pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements. 


  


Patricia has dedicated her career to advocating for her clients by assisting in settling family law disputes and trying to minimize conflict and costs for her clients.  


 


Despite Patricia's dedication to settling her cases for her clients, she is no stranger to a courtroom and advocates zealously for her clients by being a voice for them in the courtroom.


 


Trisha represents clients in family law litigation cases, including divorce actions, property characterization, reimbursement claims and all child related issues including custody and child support. Trisha also represents clients in modification and enforcement of existing family law orders, including modifying and enforcing child support and conservatorship issues. Trisha represents clients in need of emergency protection orders and temporary restraining orders in situations involving family violence. Trisha also assists clients in drafting and review of pre-nuptial and post-nuptial property agreements.
