Family Law and Divorce
Family Law, also known as Domestic Relations, is probably the most common legal issue faced by ordinary people. Although Family law comprises a variety of legal actions—Adoptions, Terminations, Suits Affecting the Parent/Child Relationship—Divorce is probably the type of case most people think of in Family Law. Nobody plans on getting divorced, but in today’s world--ironically enough--it is only by filing a divorce that you can make someone is live up to the duties and promises of the marital contract.
Housing, Landlord/Tenant, Consumer Law
My first job after law was staffing a Landlord/Tenant legal line in San Antonio. Whether you are a tenant or a landlord, I can help you understand rights, time lines,and duties in a Landlord/Tenant dispute. Additionally, having worked for the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs for 5 years, I am familiar with real estate documents and affordable housing programs.
