Attorney Profile

A partner at Jenkins Kamin LLP since February 2018, Susan E. Oehl focuses her practice exclusively on family law matters. Based in Houston and providing dedicated representation to clients throughout the greater metropolitan area, she has been certified as a specialist in family law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, and she is admitted to practice before all Texas state courts.

Ms. Oehl's client base primarily consists of people whose marriages are coming to an end and who thus need to deal with such divorce-related issues as child custody and visitation, the division of complex assets and debts, and spousal and child support. A forceful courtroom advocate when necessary, her extensive training in mediation and collaborative law enables her to try and help her clients come to an agreement on these matters through the use of those alternative dispute resolution methods. In addition to her divorce practice, Ms. Oehl regularly prepares and reviews prenuptial and postmarital agreements.

Ms. Oehl attended Baylor University in Waco, where she majored in economics and received a Bachelor of Arts in 2003. She then went on to pursue her legal education at South Texas College of Law Houston, and she was awarded her Juris Doctor in 2006. Ms. Oehl joined Jenkins Kamin LLP in September 2008 after being associated with two other firms. She has delivered presentations on child custody and other topics related to her practice area to groups of fellow attorneys, and she has been named to Houstonia magazine's annual list of Top Lawyers. A member of the Houston Bar Association and other professional groups, she is involved in several charitable endeavors as well, including Dress for Success Houston.
