Nicie Pratt

Nicie enjoys practicing family law.  "Family law issues can create incredible difficulty in a person's life. A person that needs a family law attorney deserves to work with an experienced attorney that is assertive, but also has integrity and compassion. I pride myself on the relationship I build with my clients as I help them maneuver the complexities of family law including divorce, custody, visitation, modifications, protective orders, and adoptions." Nicie also provides mediation services and can represent you in the formal Collaborative Divorce process. To learn more about the Collaborative  Divorce process, visit Collaborative Divorce Texas


Nicie also has vast experience in health law. Prior to joining our law firm, Nicie provided General Counsel legal services to a multi-billion dollar health system consisting of 5,000+ employees, five hospitals with a large medical staff, a large physician medical group, surgery center, imaging center, laboratory, health insurance company, ACO/clinical integration group, and health information exchange.
