Sharon is a Credentialed Distinguished Mediator by the Texas Mediator Credentialing Association.  Prior to starting her dedicated mediation practice in 2016, Sharon practiced collaborative law and also litigated complex family law, probate, and guardianship cases.

Since starting her mediation practice, Sharon has helped settle hundreds of family law cases and civil cases, such as debt claims, probate, and landlord-tenant issues.

Throughout her career, Sharon has represented individuals and families in Dallas County, Denton County, Collin County, Tarrant County, Rockwall County, and other counties throughout North Texas.

Sharon recognizes the value of taking a non-adversarial approach to family law matters, including divorce, child custody, and child support, to help parties maintain long-term relationships and keep children’s best interests at heart.

Sharon helps parties settle their disputes privately in a dignified manner, without involving a judge who could impose decisions on them that do not meet their needs. Recognizing the value of allowing parties to craft their own settlements to meet their specific needs, Sharon’s approach generally results in unique settlements that truly address the interests and concerns of all parties.

Sharon completed the 40-hour civil mediation and 24-hour family law mediation training in 2008, the required 4-hour domestic violence training in 2017, and regularly attends seminars and conferences focusing on alternative dispute resolution techniques.  She is licensed to practice in Texas state courts, in the federal district courts for the Northern and Eastern Districts of Texas, and the Supreme Court of the United States.

Sharon was formerly an adjunct faculty member at the University of North Texas in Denton, Texas teaching family law mediation.  Sharon also served as an adjunct professor in the Conflict Management and Dispute Resolution Program at El Centro College, a part of the Dallas County Community College District in Dallas, Texas, where she taught both the 24-hour family law mediation training and the 40-hour civil mediation training.
