Fees
  • Free Consultation
    Being involved in a serious accident can have a catastrophic effect on you and your family’s financial status. I understand this. That is why I never charge any fees upfront to take your case. My responsibilities and duties as your attorney require to perform a thorough investigation into the facts and circumstances of your accident or injury. Interviewing witnesses as quickly as possible is important to make sure what they saw and heard is recorded. I will also send notifications to people and businesses to preserve relevant evidence ensuring that nothing can be hidden or destroyed relating to your case. Retaining expert witnesses to help explain how the accident and injuries occurred, and what those injuries mean for your future is also import. These are all steps I take to investigate and prosecute your case. And I pay those fees upfront. I only receive a fee if we win.

Legal Answers
Q. Ex ordered to pay half our son’s unreimbursed medical expenses. He took off; no idea whereabouts. Next step?
A: If the insurance is State funded, you can contact the Attorney General to enforce the Court Order. Otherwise, you need to hire a lawyer to file a Motion to Enforce the Child Support Order. He can be served out of State with the Motion to Enforce. Eventually, the Court could hold him in contempt. But my experience has been the Court's will afford him an opportunity to bring himself into compliance before finding him in contempt.
Q. I informed my child’s mother that I was going to take her to court for 7 and 7 joint custody and she blocked my number
A: There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. The first question I have is how old is you child? If he/she is old enough to go to school, you can likely have her served at school during pickup and drop off. If child is not in school, you may want to consider employing a private investigator to find her. Also, if you search for her and cannot find her, you may be able ask the court for alternate service where you are allowed to notify her via a family member or friend. Finally, if you know where she is staying, considering asking the police to do a wellness check on you child and document that you told mom your plans and she blocked you. Speak with an attorney to begin the process.
Q. Need legal advise for family law pertaining to alimony and spousal maintenance
A: There is a difference between alimony and spousal support. A Texas Court cannot Order alimony. It can Order spousal support. However, the parties can agree to what is called contractual alimony. If they agree to contractual alimony, then it can be put in the divorce decree and enforced as a court order. Spousal support is different. If you have been married for at least ten years, and do not possess the skills necessary to provide for your basic needs, then the court may order spousal support. Think of situations where a husband was the primary bread winner for 15 years and wife was a homemaker. Wife has not been in the workforce for those 15 years. The Court can order husband to pay monthly spousal support to allow wife time to enter the workforce and begin earning. The Court must consider also the size of the estate being awarded to wife. If it is a large estate, and wife is awarded a large six figure portion, spousal support may not happen. The court is instructed to look at the following; the marriage has been for ten years or longer and the spouse made diligent efforts to either earn sufficient income or to develop necessary skills while the divorce is pending to meet his or her minimum reasonable needs; or the other spouse has committed family violence; or the requesting spouse has an incapacitating disability that arose during marriage; or a child of the marriage (of any age) has a physical or mental disability that prevents the spouse who cares for and supervises the child from earning sufficient income. The easiest way is to contact an attorney to have a discussion about this issue.
