San Antonio, Texas 78209
I'm an attorney and trained mediator who helps clients navigate change and resolve conflict in divorce, family law, and probate matters. Using collaborative law tools, I especially enjoy helping my clients explore their true goals and interests, gather the necessary information related to the particular dispute, brainstorm and evaluate possible options, and, finally, negotiate an outcome that meets the goals and interests of all parties involved. When a case involves children, I help the participants find the best solution possible for the children. I like working with clients to create solutions and to develop conflict resolution skills, preserving relationships whenever possible.
