In Dallas, Collin and Denton Texas counties, our law firm will serve as a strong voice for your family law and divorce related family matters and we will be there through life-changing challenges relating to:

  • Divorce — We work closely with you to safeguard your legal interests during the divorce process, protecting you and your family. In many cases, we can minimize the expense and aggravation often associated with ending a marriage by resolving issues through effective negotiation. However, when disputes over alimony, property division or parenting matters cannot be worked out, we construct the strongest possible argument for an appropriate outcome and we then, litigate your matter to ensure you have the best possible outcome.
  • Child custody — No matter how bitter your divorce or your child custody dispute was, if you are the parents of minor children, you’re going to need to collaborate together for years afterward, and if not, your children may be harmed from the confrontations that occur. Accordingly, most Texas decisions and court orders result in joint managing conservatorship, where parents share responsibility for key decisions involving their sons and daughters, again requiring the two parties to work together. If working together poses a problem for you or your family, or if a disagreement arises over residential custody or visitation (known as possession under Texas state law), our lawyers will take the necessary steps on behalf of children and their parents to ease the burden and they will negotiate or litigate the matter to ensure the disagreement is resolved. We also defend clients who are being investigated by Texas Child Protective Services (CPS) so that they can resolve the issue and maintain their parental rights.
  • Child support — Regardless of whether parents were ever married, each parent has a legal obligation to provide financial support to their children. We represent parents to help ensure that the noncustodial parent’s income is accurately assessed during child support determinations and so that proper child support orders are entered. Our firm also handles other legal issues relating to child support including modification requests, enforcement actions and paternity disputes.

Naturally, many clients are concerned about litigation costs, especially in a family law dispute. Although no attorney can predict exactly how a case will proceed, or what the costs will be, our experienced attorneys, who charge a reasonable hourly rate, will be there to make informed assessments regarding your matter and they will work to end your matter and curtail your legal expenses. At every stage of your case, our family law attorneys will seek cost-efficient alternatives such as negotiation and mediation, and if we cannot resolve your matter, we will be there for you and litigate your matter.


Making the right preparations as your marriage begins can prevent costly marital estate disputes, especially if the union eventually ends in divorce. Our knowledgeable attorneys help clients establish fair prenuptial and postnuptial agreements so that each partner understands their legal and financial rights. Though you might never need such an agreement, creating an authoritative document means that you and your partner won’t have to wonder about alimony or property issues if the marriage ends.


Bringing a child into your family is a wonderful experience, but in doing so, you must act for the betterment of that child. In fact, many people do not know this, but having a child also requires strict adherence to state law and the guidelines set forth by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services in ensuring that that child’s welfare is protected, while in utero and after birth.  Our experienced family law attorneys will be there to help you understand the process and complete the required documents if you happen to be under the direction or control of CPS and we will assist you in understanding your options. Our seasoned attorneys can also help you prepare for the home study and CPS interview.
