Family Law Attorney in Plano, Texas

A Family Law Attorney With Extensive Trial Experience

I offer counsel and representation to men and women facing a wide range of family law problems and challenges. In addition to explaining Texas family law, I can share experience gained through my years of trial practice and my solid insight into how area courts may view your case.

If you are considering divorce or legal separation, or have been served and need to respond, I will meet with you promptly and explore next steps. If problems have arisen after your divorce, or you need to deal with another family event, contact me to help you make sound choices and target the best outcome possible.

A Constructive, Practical Approach to Divorce

Divorce is a life-changing event that often causes great stress and uncertainty. Whether you want to mount an aggressive court fight or you choose to avoid costly litigation with a more amicable negotiated settlement, my job is to help you achieve your goals. I will help you understand any property division issues related to your divorce.

We can discuss your priorities involving your children and property and work together to form a sound plan. You can rest assured that if litigation becomes necessary, you will have a proven and experienced trial lawyer on your side.

Modifications and Enforcement — Adoptions and Guardianships

I also provide family law services such as:

  • Pursuing a modification of child support, children due to some substantial change in your circumstances
  • Taking strong legal action for enforcement of orders in your divorce decree, such as non-payment of child support or your ex-spouse's refusal to allow visitation — or defending you against any unjust enforcement actions
  • Handling all legal aspects of your need for a guardianship or conservatorship
  • Handling adoptions for stepparents and other family members, including those involving a termination of parental rights
