CHOOSING A LAWYER
Divorce is one of the most difficult things a person will ever go through. Divorce cases are extremely stressful because the case will involve your relationship, your children, and your property. Your life will change as a result of any type of divorce litigation and it is important that you have counsel that can effectively represent you in your case and explain Texas law to you in a way that makes sense.
Texas Family Law is complex in and of itself, and your particular divorce situation is likely complicated as well. You need representation that is familiar with the law and the issues of your case. No two cases are identical. Having an attorney who is experienced with the particulars of your case is essential to obtaining the most favorable outcome possible.

Fees & Costs
Divorce is not an inexpensive process. The initial retainer can easily run into the thousands of dollars for a complicated case. You need to consider the old adage, “You get what you pay for.” Sometimes, to protect your children, your money, and your property you must retain compentent counsel and bear the cost of that representation. I understand that this process can be incredibly expensive and I will do what I can to work with you towards the financial burden of litigation. You must do what you financially can to protect your rights and the rights of your children.
