Professional Background

I grew up with a family of dedicated doctors who instilled in me a strong work ethic and dedication to a career in addition to family. Once I knew that I wanted to practice law, it didn’t take long for me to find my passion in family law. Once enrolled at South Texas College of Law, I began working as a law clerk at Hendershot, Cannon & Hisey, P.C. during my first year as a law student. I have remained dedicated not only to family law, but also to the firm where my career began.

Experience

As a family law attorney, a large amount of time and effort is spent in the courtroom. Divorce and family law is one of the most litigated areas of practice for a lawyer. It’s also one where interaction with the client is most personal and involved. Care and attention to clients and their legal challenges must be genuine in order to do well in this business. This people-centered approach carries over from the client to the courtroom. There are many judges throughout Houston and the surrounding areas. The courts and the presiding judges have approaches that vary drastically from court to court. For example, a parenting plan approved by one judge may be rejected by another. With my experience and knowledge of the different courts and preferences of our many judges, I am able to help set your expectations, give you an honest opinion about what we’re facing, and work toward achieving the result you want – or get as close to it as possible – based on the situation at hand.
