Keith has been a dedicated family law attorney for over 30 years.

Keith’s family law practice focuses on divorces with complex property issues, and custody cases involving special-needs children.

Keith is a talented litigator, a sought-after mediator, and a frequent author and speaker on the topic of effectively representing parents of special-needs children.

Keith is Board Certified in Family Law since 1997, and is a Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) since 2013.

Keith has served on the board of Volunteer Legal Services for several years and has recently committed to serve on the board of the Texas chapter of AAML.

Keith grew up in Galena Park, Texas. A year after his graduation from South Texas College of Law, Keith moved to Austin and began his career as a family lawyer.

Keith lives in Barton Hills with his wife Nikki (also a family lawyer), his son Ben, and his stepson Milan. When he’s not in the office, you might find Keith running on the Town Lake Trail (he’s a Boston Marathon finisher), captaining a sailboat (insert pirate joke here), hitting the downtown farmers’ market, or snowboarding with his daughter, Sarah.
