People like authenticity also, honesty if you develop a reputation for telling the truth. I tell the truth to my clients, to the court. People want to hear the truth even though it may not be what they want they appreciate it to hear the truth about their case.

I have dedicated my entire legal career to family law. I was board certified in 1998 in family law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. I’ve served on many boards. In 2006, I was the president of the Dallas Bar Associations family law section. This year, 2018, I’m serving as the president of the Legacy Court Foundation it’s a drug court for parents that have had their children removed by Child Protective Services.

You know pigs get fat and hogs get slaughtered. We have to temper our request with what’s reasonable a likely outcome. I’ve had people refuse an offer and then later you can get less by not accepting a good deal when the time is right. So you need a lawyer to tell you what is that sweet spot to get the most you can without sabotaging your case.

I love to travel to other countries and learn about different cultures and different food. I also love restoring historic houses. My office is built in 1909 and I’ve lovingly restored this. It’s been a labor of love and an expensive labor of love but I enjoy the history that goes along with an old house.
