We represent men and women at all stages of a divorce, from the decision to file through negotiations or trial to post-judgment requests for modification of an existing divorce order. We handle all matters related to or arising out of divorce, including

  • child custody and visitation. We will help you work out custody and parenting plans that are in your children’s best interests while simultaneously working to protect your rights and interests as a parent.
  • child support. Our lawyers will review the proposed child support order for compliance with Texas guidelines and to verify that all income is included in the calculation.
  • property division. We will assist you with the equitable distribution of marital debts and assets, such as credit cards, mortgages, real and personal property, investments and bank accounts, retirement funds, and business interests.


We handle all matters related to adoption proceedings, preparing and filing all required documentation and acting as your spokesperson in meetings with birth parents, adoption agencies and the courts. We assist with all types of adoptions, including stepparent adoptions, grandparent or family adoptions, open or closed adoptions, private or agency adoptions, and intrastate, interstate, or international adoptions. See our page on adoptions to learn more.

Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements

If you are considering getting married and are either bringing significant assets into the marriage or have children from a prior marriage, we can help you protect your property interests with a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement. For more information, go to our page on premarital or prenuptial agreements.

Fathers’ Rights

We strongly advocate for fathers’ rights in divorce proceedings, arguing for custody and support rights when circumstances dictate. We also fight to allow noncustodial fathers visitation without undue interruption or interference. Go to our website on fathers’ rights to learn more.

Collaborative Divorce

We work closely with men and women who want to resolve divorce issues without the time and expense of a traditional divorce proceeding, helping them use the collaborative law process to cooperatively find solutions that are in everyone’s best interests.
