Carlos Salinas graduated from Georgetown University in 1998 and the University of Texas School of Law in 2003. He began his legal practice in California, developing a broad range of skills in family law matters while nurturing his particular interest in representing survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. His work has included marital dissolutions, pre- and post-marital agreements, child custody, child support, minors’ counsel, complex property distribution, and cases involving domestic violence. He returned to Texas in 2008, where he expanded his broad family law practice to include applications under the Hague Convention for the return of children abducted by family members across international borders. He holds a mediation certification from the Center for Public Policy Dispute Resolution, but also has extensive courtroom experience in contested litigation. With this wide range of experience, he believes in creating a customized approach for each client that reflects the unique situation of each family and resolves legal problems by prioritizing the client’s individual needs and goals.
