Family at sunsetPractice in the areas of Family Law, Criminal Defense Law, Probate Law, & Consumer Protection

Family Law

I practice in the following areas of family law:

  • Divorce
  • Modification of custody orders
  • Modification of child support orders
  • Defending parents who are under investigation by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services

Criminal Defense

I defend people who have been charged with both felonies and misdemeanors. I do not, however, do criminal defense for matters involving traffic tickets. There are lawyers who do that much more cheaply than I can, and I would be happy to refer to you someone to help you with a traffic ticket if that’s what you need help with.

I also help people who are in danger of having their probation revoked.

Probate Law

I make simple wills of the kind generally needed by average people who own a house and who have children but who may have little else in the way of property. Large estates that will involve tax considerations generally require someone who specializes in probate law.

I also prepare these documents when I make a will for you:

  • Statutory Durable Power of Attorney
  • Medical Power of Attorney
  • Directive to Physician

past due billConsumer Protection: Defending Debtors

Have you been sued by your credit card company or a collection agency for an old debt? Or a debt that you aren’t even sure is yours?

Even if you’re sure that it’s your debt and that you owe the money, if you have been sued on a consumer credit matter you need the help of a lawyer to defend yourself or you will end up paying the credit card company or collection agency a lot more than you owe them.
