Family Law

Patrick has been dedicated to the practice of family law since his second and third years of law school when he interned for the 247th Family District Court of Harris County, Texas. After spending two years practicing family law in Dallas, Texas, Patrick moved back to Houston to be closer to his family and to focus his attention on serving the families of the Houston Metropolitan area in one of their greatest times of need. There are no “cookie-cutter” family law cases, as every client’s facts, needs, and circumstances require a unique plan. Patrick takes a practical, reasonable approach to each case he handles, recognizing that clients are best served in an efficient and cost-effective manner. He always puts the client’s best interests at the forefront of his work. Patrick handles a large assortment of family law matters, including divorces, original suits affecting the parent-child relationship, modifications of orders involving children, enforcements, and protective orders.
