Biography

Thanks a bunch for reading my bio! I was raised in the Houston area and have a passion for connecting with people and helping them solve their problems. Family law practice, and the practice of law in general, is a great way to pursue my passion and contribute all I can to Houston and society, and to become a better person, all while making a living! Not a bad deal huh? I haven't always been a lawyer, I have worked in so many different fields! I've been privileged enough to have worked as a construction manager, teacher/tutor, automotive lube technician, salesman and as a meat cutter in a small shop in Humble, I may have even made your Whopper when I worked at Burger King back in high school! I've been around for a bit, and I have been blessed with an understanding of many of the issues that all types of people face in their family, personal, and professional lives, and it is worthy to note that it's not all unpleasant. My experience and desire is one of the reasons I enjoy, and can thrive as an attorney. I have also developed a level of patience and ability to listen that helps me understand what it is that a client wants and needs.

When I'm not working I enjoy traveling, spending time with family, and everything motorcycle! On that note, if you come into the office for a consult, have a few extra minutes, and want to talk about your Harley, sport bike, or whatever, I'm all ears!

Legal Answers
Q. What are my steps to help secure at least 50 50 custody of our 3 kids during divorce?
A: One thing that courts consider when devising a parenting plan is how much each parent is involved with the children before the divorce, being a big part of the kids' life can have a big impact on the result of a child custody case. That being said, the standard possession order is presumed by courts to be in the best interest of children. You can find the standard possession in the Texas Family Code or by doing a quick google search, it may work well for you so I suggest talking the time to understand it. You can also reach out to an attorney to explain it to you. A 50/50 schedule is not usually awarded by courts, one reason is that it may not work well logistically, for example, if the kids are switching houses each week then the parents have to live close to each other for the children to easily attend school, this may not work well for the parents. It isn't impossible to get a 50/50 schedule, but the best place to get something like that is in mediation. I suggest you consult with a lawyer to help you develop a strategy to achieve your goals, it may be that a 50/50 is what works best for you.
Q. In divorce if I pay all bills and I am sole person on mortgage can I get house in divorce but he is in title
A: If the house was acquired during marriage then it is community property and is subject to division, regardless of who is on the title or mortgage. That being said, it could be that you keep the house and the debt that goes with it, but he gets more of something else that represents his share of the equity in the house. You should hire a lawyer that will try to help you achieve your goals within the laws of Texas.
Q. At what age can a child decide on their own which parent they want to live with?
A: They can decide on their own when they are 18, but a court is required to take a child's opinion into consideration if they are aged 12 or up, if they are under 12 then the court may or may not take their opinion into consideration. The child's opinion is not controlling and the court can do what is in the child's best interest.
