    Attorney Profile

    Entrepreneurs, business owners, lawyers, doctors and their spouses all trust Aimee to provide thoughtful and efficient solutions to the most complex family law matters. She recognizes that her clients have worked a lifetime to attain success and devises effective strategies to value their time and protect their interests and achievements.

    Aimee specializes in cases involving business valuation and division, custody and parenting, and mental health and substance abuse issues. A Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, Aimee has earned the esteem of judges and peers for her exceptional work in representing clients and helping to shape family law in Texas.

    Aimee understands small business matters, including organization, ownership and stock interests, and bonus structures. She recently negotiated a settlement which allowed a business owner to maintain a growing entity without having to sell, while transferring the spouse’s interest into a flexible payout plan and maintaining the desired confidentiality of the parties.

    In managing complex custody cases, Aimee draws heavily on her master’s degree in social work. She is known as an empathetic lawyer who helps clients navigate the greatest challenges of their lives. When representing a client with a serious substance abuse issue, Aimee helped structure an arrangement that involved drug testing, counseling and treatment. She salvaged her client’s conservatorship rights, protected the children, and empowered the client to return to unsupervised possession quickly.
