With extensive experience in cases involving divorce, custody and marital property agreements, Chris is comfortable in the chaos that comes with family law. No issue is too big or too small for Chris and his team to handle. As a skilled litigation and collaborative family law attorney, clients find comfort in knowing that Chris will be there guiding them through each step of their case with the knowledge and expertise needed to achieve the best possible outcome.

Just as no two families are the same, no two family law cases are exactly alike, and Chris zealously works to find creative solutions for each client he represents. And Chris enjoys strongly advocating for his clients, taking the route that best meets that individual client’s needs.

As a recent client of Chris’ put it, “I highly recommend Chris to anyone going through a complex case or going up against an army of lawyers on the other side. His calm demeanor and genuine concern to resolve the issues amicably are beyond compare, and should the issue proceed further, he is absolutely outstanding in delivering a positive outcome.”

Chris also prioritizes keeping his clients regularly informed on their case progress. One of the most important aspects of good representation is effective communication between the lawyer and client. Chris makes a point of ensuring each of his client’s calls and emails are promptly answered and that his client knows exactly what is going on in their case at any given time.

Chris is board certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and has been regularly recognized by his peers and reviewers as one of the top Texas family law attorneys.
