An Established Austin, Texas, Family Law Firm
When I opened my law practice in 1995, I committed myself to providing personal client service. I have maintained that commitment as my practice has grown over the years. With the help of my staff, I personally investigate, prepare, negotiate, and if necessary, try every case I take on. I pride myself on having a firm grasp of my clients’ situations and their goals.
In the area of family law, I handle divorce settlements, child custody and visitation agreements, modifications of prior divorce and custody orders, enforcement actions, relocations, adoptions, name changes, prenuptial agreements and other matters. I am a founding member and the current president of the Austin Collaborative Law Group. Collaborative law practice is a new form of alternative dispute resolution for family law cases in Texas.
Other Practice Areas
In addition to family law, I draft wills and other estate planning documents, and I represent clients in probate disputes such as will contests. In the area of construction law, I have represented general contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and an engineer in a variety of cases, including bond claims under the McGregor Act involving public works projects, collection cases, professional liability and breach of contract cases.
My Qualifications As An Attorney
As an interested citizen and an attorney, I have attended the Supreme Court Advisory Committee hearings on changes to the Texas Rules of Civil Procedure pertaining to evictions, and I participated in the ad hoc committee meeting designed to help solve problems presented by the current eviction rules.
I am licensed in Texas state courts and the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas. Appellate cases I have tried include:
- Pringadi v. Heffern, 2005 WL 2978434, Tex.App.-Austin, November 3, 2004 (No. 03-05-00501-CV) (Not reported in the Southwestern Reporter)
- Miller v. Ludeman, 150 S.W.3d 592, Tex.App.-Austin 2004 (pet. denied).
