Practice State





My practice specialty is in representing clients in the division, clarification and/or enforcement of Military and Civil Service Retirement, both pre and post divorce.  Other attorneys within and without the State of Texas retain me to assist them in the representation of their clients that have Military and/or Civil Service retirement and related issues in their cases, including the preparation of Miltiary and Civil Service Domestic Relations Orders and/or to serve as consultant and/or expert witness in these specialized areas of the divorce practice. 

Also being Board Certified in Civil Appellate Law, my practice also involves representation of clients on appeal.  My list of appellate cases can be found on our firm website in my biography area.

Otherwise, my practice emphasizes traditional client divorce and post-divorce representation and litigation.
