I have been practicing exclusively bankruptcy law in Texas for almost 40 years. Unlike most other law firms, my firm is exclusively dedicated to helping individuals and small businesses find a way out of their financial difficulties through the use of our nation’s bankruptcy laws. Also, unlike most other law firms, my practice is completely “touch-free,” from your first meeting to bankruptcy discharge, thus making your bankruptcy filing very safe during this global pandemic. The decision to file bankruptcy is one of the most difficult decisions an individual can make. My clients come to my offices scared, nervous, and embarrassed. They leave relieved that their financial problems have been solved in a legal, moral, and ethical manner.


I served as President and am now the Treasurer of the Western District of Texas Bankruptcy Bar Association. I served as the President of the Central Texas Bankruptcy Bar Association for eight years. I also served as the State Chair for the Western District of Texas for the NationalAssociation of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys for over a decade. I teach other attorneys advanced bankruptcy law matters several times each year at national, international, state, and local bar association continuing education seminars. I taught a course entitled “Debtors’ Rights and Creditors’ Remedies” as an adjunct law professor at Baylor Law School for over ten years.


I attended Texas Tech Law School and graduated, with honors, in 1983. While I was in law school, I served as an Editor on the Texas Tech Law Review and clerked for the Lubbock Bankruptcy Judge. I have a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, and a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Trinity University in SanAntonio, Texas. I am originally from Dallas, Texas. My husband and I moved to Central Texas in1993. We absolutely love Central Texas!
