I have been a practicing attorney in the Dallas, Texas area since 1980 and have been Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas State Board of Legal Certification since 1985. I worked for a small law firm upon first moving to Dallas, Texas in 1981 and have been a self employed, practicing attorney since 1990. I was fortunate as a young lawyer to work for Barton Bernstein and Lawrence Hochberg who taught me so much about practicing law and being a lawyer. They made it possible for me to step into my own practice in 1990 and be successful.

Bart Bernstein has been even more helpful and supportive since I entered into my own private practice and continues to be a collaborater in retirement. It was Bart who instilled in me a love of teaching and writing.

I have been fortunate in blending law practice with teaching and writing. It is my desire to continue to do so well into the future.
