How We Can Help

Legal Strategy

We will assess the details of your case, identifying strengths and weaknesses in the CPS allegations. We'll work closely with you to develop a strategic defense plan, aiming to protect your parental rights and the well-being of your child.

Courtroom Advocacy

In cases where litigation is necessary, we will zealously represent you in court. We'll present a compelling case on your behalf, cross-examine witnesses, and argue motions to ensure your rights and interests are protected.

Evidence Gathering

We will meticulously gather and examine evidence relevant to your case. This includes interviewing witnesses, obtaining records, and ensuring that all pertinent information is properly documented to support your defense.


If your child has been temporarily removed from your custody, we can assist in creating and implementing family reunification plans. Our CPS defense attorney will work with you to meet the requirements set by CPS and demonstrate your commitment to providing a safe and nurturing environment for your child's return.

Frequently-Asked Questions

CPS, or Child Protective Services, is a government agency created to protect children from abuse, neglect, and other forms of harm or endangerment. You may need a CPS defense attorney if you are involved in a CPS investigation or case to protect your parental rights and navigate complex legal proceedings effectively.

We primarily focus on family law matters (i.e. divorce, modifications, enforcements, paternity, etc.) but we also assist with some landlord-tenant, small claims, and can assist with basic wills and power of attorney documents. 

Our firm is based in Harker Heights, Texas, but we represent clients across Texas, including Killeen, Fort Hood, Harker Heights, Copperas Cove, Kempner, Salado, Troy, Gatesville, Belton, Nolanville, Temple, Georgetown, Lampasas, and Burnet within Bell, Burnet, Williamson, Coryell, and Lampasas counties.

It depends. The attorney and the billing staff will make that determination after your consult. 

We can help negotiate with CPS and provide expert legal advice to facilitate a resolution that preserves your family’s unity while addressing any concerns raised by CPS.

Yes, we do! We offer in-person, Zoom, and phone consults. 

No. At this time, we do not accept walk-in visits due to our being a small firm. We are often out of the office at the courthouse, meeting with clients, etc.

Not at this time. Clients are required to pay an initial retainer and work is billed against the retainer. If more work needs to be completed and the client’s retainer balance is depleted, the firm will request that the retainer balance is replenished.
