With her multidisciplinary background, Tina is able to adeptly handle the educator role that comes with being a strong family law advocate.

Tina also spent some time in the classroom helping educators implement programs, and it was during this time spent with children that she truly developed a passion for being the voice of others.
Tina attended South Texas College of Law Houston and focused her coursework on trial and advocacy.
