Britney is an experienced attorney who thrives on the personal touch of family law and the opportunity to guide clients through one of the most difficult times of life. Combining the advocate and counselor sides of being an attorney, she builds trust with clients and makes them feel comfortable. Most important, she strives to resolve marital issues while preserving respectful relationships.

Britney listens attentively to her clients and discovers the little details that can make a difference in their cases. She excels at developing creative solutions for custody and co-parenting issues. Britney begins with an amicable approach when it can produce favorable results for her clients, but will aggressively litigate matters if necessary. In the end, she understands that divorce is deeply personal because it involves family. Britney’s overall goal is to achieve the most satisfactory outcome that enables clients to find closure and make a fresh start.

In addition to family law, Britney has also practiced employment law and commercial litigation. Her diverse background has honed her ability to think on her feet in the courtroom, understand the different approaches of judges, and prepare clients for what to expect as their cases advance.

An Austin native, Britney was first in her undergraduate class at the University of North Texas. She received her law degree, with honors, from the University of Texas School of Law in 2010. Britney spent a semester abroad in Lyon, France, and loves traveling and spending time with her family. Of all her achievements, Britney is most proud of obtaining a job out of law school that gave her the income to put her dad through college.
