As a child of a lawyer, I knew early on that this was what I wanted to do. I grew up watching my dad help families and saw the impact that he had on them. 

My introduction to the courtroom came early because I was lucky enough to have parents that allowed me to go up to the courthouse during the summer and watch my dad in trial. The power of effective advocacy and giving your client a voice in an intimidating environment was not lost on me. 

I graduated high school in three years went on to get an undergraduate degree in Government and a Doctor of Jurisprudence Degree at the University of Texas at Austin. In May 2017, I will have been licensed to practice law in the State of Texas for ten years. 

I limit my family law practice to Dallas, Collin, Denton, Tarrant, Kaufman, and Rockwall Counties and I am a proud member of the following organizations:

  • State Bar of Texas, Family Law Section
  • Dallas Bar Association, Family Law Section
  • Collin County Bar Association
  • American Bar Association, Family Law Section
  • Dallas Women Lawyers Association
  • Texas Family Law Foundation
  • Dallas Association of Young Lawyers
