I am especially familiar with the issues that service members and their spouses face in family law cases, particularly calculating child support and dividing military retirement. I have represented service members and government employees stationed all over the world.
Some divorces are very nasty, but most cases are settled through negotiating. I am always prepared to go to court to fight for my clients. But going to court is not always worth it. If we have to go to court, I will be prepared, and I like to win. But if we can work things out and keep the costs down, and still get my client a good result, so much the better.
Firms have overhead. Rent, staff, and equipment is expensive and those costs are passed on to their clients. I am a solo attorney. You hire me and you get me. I will be answering your calls and questions, not a paralegal.
Personally: I started working at age 14, and I put myself through college and law school. I have been in practice for almost 10 years. While I have a lot left to learn, I consider myself very experienced with the day to day reality of the courts in Bexar County and the surrounding counties. My mother practiced family law for 25 years, and I learned a lot from working with her. In September of 2017, I was diagnosed with cancer, and after 6 months of chemotherapy, I am in remission. I understand that life can change in an instant. My parents also divorced when I was 10 years old and I believe this gives me a unique insight and understanding.
I am an active member of both the San Antonio Family Law Association and the San Antonio Elder Law Association. Read more about my experience and background by clicking the link below.
