I have a small, private law practice devoted to finalizing the adoptions of children who have been in the custody of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) due to abuse, neglect, or abandonment.   

Since 2005, it has been my great joy and privilege to represent foster-adoptive parents throughout the North Texas area.  While the foster parent journey can be long and challenging, the adoption process need not be.  The easiest way to get started is to complete and return an intake sheet.  Please feel free to contact me with any of your questions or concerns specific to your situation.

Every adoption story is so unique.  I believe that individual attention to each case is what sets me apart from other firms.  I enjoy getting to know each family personally.  Please know that when you contact me to represent you in your upcoming adoption, you will be working directly with me, not a paralegal or office staff.

Academic Background

I received a Bachelor of Arts from Austin College in Sherman, Texas in 1998, majoring in English and French.  After teaching English in Japan from 1998-2001, I returned to Texas to attend law school.  I graduated from the Texas Tech School of Law in 2003, and was admitted to the State Bar of Texas in November 2004.


I am not board certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
