"I like practicing Family Law because we get to fight for and protect the most important things in our clients’ lives. Family Law is more than who-gets-what or who-gets-the-kids, we strive to protect our client’s short term and long term interests.
The saying 'I wasn't born in Texas but I got here as fast I could' is true for me. Although I was not born in Texas, I grew up around Fort Worth and have lived in Texas most of my life. I have a great fondness for Texas. I love the Rangers (Let’s Go Rangers! Let’s Go!), the Cowboys (it IS America’s team after all), Texas summers and Tex-Mex! While I have deep affection for Texas, the best thing about my life is being an Aunt. I have two beautiful nieces and four handsome nephews. I cherish spending time with them and teaching them all the cool stuff only Aunts get to teach."
