Summary

I've practiced law in Texas for many years. I know the prosecutors and judges and police officers. Heck, I've served as a city prosecutor and an assistant district attorney, but to tell the truth my heart was never in it. However, I do know how they think and what’s important to them and I make that work for you. I know what it takes for them to try to prove a case beyond a reasonable doubt so they win and you lose. That’s why I have been able to get very serious cases dismissed and that’s why I win at trial. Okay, if you really need to know, I’ll tell you a bit about myself. I wasn't born in Texas but I got here as fast I could – courtesy of the Army. I served as an Army wife and mom, not on active duty. My husband retired from the Army after serving for 23 years. Our two sons now serve on active duty. They’re married, they've been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan a few times. I know what today’s Army is all about and what’s at stake for those who serve - and their families. I've helped save more than a few military careers by getting soldiers’ cases dismissed including: DWIs, family assaults, shoplifting, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, possession of marijuana, etc. And I've won a few of those cases in trial too, also saving military careers.
