I’ve wanted to be a lawyer since I was a little kid and saw the film version of John Grisham’s The Pelican Brief. I had no idea I would be representing families across the state of Texas in difficult and emotional divorces.
Where did I start to get here? Not where you’d think. To be perfectly honest, I was born in Denver, Colorado, but I came to Texas as soon as I could when I was seven years old. I am one of four children – two natural-born children and two brothers who were adopted.
I attended the South Texas College of Law. When I started law school, I thought I would end up doing something with business and real estate because that was my background. However, during law school, I took a job at a boutique family law litigation firm, where I would spend the first four years of my career. It was there I learned I had a passion for family law.
I got married right after law school, and later my wife gave birth to my son James. I love both with all my heart. The start of our marriage was not an easy one. A few months after the wedding, my father passed away unexpectedly at the age of 70. Getting that phone call was one of the hardest things I have ever had to go through in my life. But it made me a better person, a better lawyer, a better husband, and a better father to my son.
It was not until I had my own family that I realized how important this job could be. Since then, I have become an even better lawyer and an advocate for my clients.
A traditional law firm relies on paper, servers, and fax machines. The law firm clunks around, clients do not know what is going on with their case, and cases must settle for bad deals before court because the lawyers are either unprepared.
We do things differently. We are paperless, in the cloud, and efficient. We are not the cheapest lawyers in town. But we offer high-end service in a way that makes sense. Our approach is newer, different, and better. better.

- A: If there is a child custody order you can bring an enforcement of that order. If there is no order you will need to get child custody orders.
- Q. Even though there were no geographic restrictions in the decree can I still challenge a relocation of my children?texas
- A: Yes you will need to file a petition to modify the divorce decree.
- Q. We went through mediation, but my husband now refuses to sign the divorce decree. What can I do?
- A: if one party refuses to sign a final decree of divorce that will be drafted by one party based on the M.S.A. Whatever their reasons may be, the party that does sign the decree will need to set a hearing to explain to the court what the situation is. The party that refuses to sign the decree may attend the hearing if they choose and explain their unwillingness to sign. The judge will sign the Decree even if it lacks one party’s signature if he or she believes it conforms with what was agreed to in the M.S.A. A divorce case, no matter how simple or straightforward it may appear at the outset, inevitably has some twists and turns that require experience and professionalism in handling them.
