As a former teacher, I know how to explain complex legal information in an easy-to-understand way without complex legal jargon. This means you'll be able understand what is happening in your case, and you'll know what I'm doing to help you reach the result you desire.
I understand that in Houston, Texas, and Harris County, the family law process can be somewhat confusing. There are usually several different approaches you can take to achieve a positive outcome. Sometimes, the best approach is to avoid trial, settling out of court instead. I'll advise you to go to court only if it's in your best interest, and I'll always work to find the best path to your success with the least stress for you.
Sometimes, going to trial is the only option. That's where you'll benefit from a common sense approach to family law that's helped my clients for more than a decade. My experience and attention to detail allow us to construct the best possible case for my client's needs. In addition to gathering all the relevant facts needed for your case, I'll also coach you on courtroom presentation and etiquette to ensure that, if you have to testify, you'd be able to do it the best possible light.
Harris County Family Law & Divorce Lawyer
My common sense approach to family law has served my clients well for more than a decade in these practice areas:
If you are facing a divorce, I will remain accessible to you and your concerns throughout the case. I will help you establish an equitable division of marital assets and a reasonable agreement regarding child custody and child support modification.
Judges in adoption cases have requested my service as a court-appointed amicus attorney in adoption cases. This experience is an asset to clients pursuing both private adoptions and stepparent adoptions.
- Modification and Enforcement
After a divorce settlement, circumstances can change dramatically. If one parent is not living up to their end of a child custody or child support agreement, I can help by pursuing an enforcement action. Or, if you or your former spouse relocates or experiences a significant change in income, I can help you file for a post decree modification.
My law office accepts credit cards and payment plans, and I will do my best to work around your schedule. We can meet during weekends and evenings by appointment.
We also welcome Spanish speaking clients and employ an in-office translator to help us understand your family law needs and objectives.
