Fluent in English and Spanish, she has experience working in the Child Support Division of the Office of the Attorney General and handles matters of alimony, child support, protective orders, child custody, divorce, modifications, temporary restraining orders and enforcement lawsuits. While she is always prepared to go the distance to protect her clients, she also recognizes the value of negotiation and works to settle cases through settlement conferences, arbitration and mediation.

A member of the Minority Bar Association and the Family Law Section of the Dallas Bar Association, she currently serves on the District 1 Grievance Committee.

While earning her undergraduate degree, Ms. Cruz was on the dean’s list and a member of the Golden Key National Honor Society. At Texas Tech University School of Law, she earned her Juris Doctor in 2005. While in law school, she attended summer courses and gained international experience at the University of Guanajuato in Mexico.

A trusted representative for individuals and families who are working through a stressful time, Ms. Cruz reviews, drafts and negotiates settlement proposals, final decrees of divorce, requests for disclosure, Rule 11 agreements and mediated settlement agreements. Her unique experience working with the Assistant Attorney General makes her extremely prepared to handle child support cases.
