Frequently Asked Questions

 

General Information

Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.

Yes, generally contested family law matters are billed hourly. An initial retainer is paid then the hourly amount is debited from the payment and the client is responsible for maintaining funds in their trust account. Most uncontested matters (suits that are filed by agreement, without personal service) are billed at a flat fee.

Consultation fees are $100.00 for 30 minutes, except for veterans (waived)..

How did you get started doing this type of work?

I began with a passion for representing those in need. I love what I do. I enjoy meeting new clients and dealing with new legal issues.

How much are your consultations and how long do they last?

Consultations are $100.00 and last 30 minutes. Call 281-961-9197 to schedule an appointment.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

Research your options in hiring an attorney. Consider your personal needs. Be wary of free consultations as most experienced, frequently hired attorneys value their time and value their time spent for consults and work in general.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I graduated Cum Laude status of my undergraduate college and in the top 19% of my law school class. I have attended several advanced courses in Texas family law and criminal law.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

The process begins with scheduling a private consultation in order to assess the case. You may call or email to request a consultation. All consultation requests are screened. Although we wish we could help every person in need of representation, we do take into account our caseload at the time of the request in accepting requests to consult.

A $100 consultation fee is charged for all matters. Consultations last 30 minutes and are scheduled with the attorney. During the consultation we strive to provide as much information as possible regarding your particular legal issue, our representation, and the options in your case. A retainer fee or flat fee quote is given at the conclusion of the consultation, depending on the particularities of the case.

What types of customers have you worked with?

All types. Having worked for years in West Texas then in the heart of Houston – I have worked with an array of people. Everyone’s case is unique in its own way.
