My office is conveniently located in South Arlington on Mayfield Road just west of Cooper Street near Interstate 20. I practice in Dallas, Tarrant and surrounding counties exclusively in the area of family law, including divorce, custody, child support, modification, paternity, private adoption, marital agreements and mediation.
I am an experienced, seasoned attorney. I represent my clients aggressively and zealously. I am thorough, organized, intelligent and driven. I return my phone calls. I care about my clients and I fight vigorously and tirelessly for their rights. When I walk into the courtrom, I have a complete and accurate understanding of both the law and the facts of my case. I am always prepared. I am well respected by the Judges and by my peers. I am courteous and respectful toward other attorneys, but I will never allow them to take advantage of my clients. I am fair and honest. My integrity is worthy of your complete trust.
My philosophy in my practice is that you and I are a team. We work together in developing and implementing a strategy that will achieve the best possible outcome in the case. We decide together what the goals are and what the strategy should be. I advise you of all the possibilities, the costs, and the potential risks and gains. I empower you with knowledge, because with that knowledge you will have the power to control those aspects of your case that can be controlled.
My assistants are always pleasant, compassionate, efficient and helpful. They are smart and organized. I keep them well informed of everything that I do so that they can assist me in keeping my clients well informed of the progress of their cases.
I was born and raised in El Paso, Texas. I graduated high school in 1979, college in 1982 and law school in 1984. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in business administration from Stephens College in Columbia, Missouri and my law degree from Baylor University School of Law in Waco, Texas. I am a member of the Tarrant County Bar Association and the Tarrant County Family Law Bar Association. I am licensed to practice law by the Supreme Court of Texas in all state courts, and I am licensed to practice in the United States Federal Court in the Northern District of Texas.
