Greg Beane is Board-Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, and has been practicing law since 2006. With a background in accounting and finance, Greg leads clients through one of the most significant financial transactions of their lives while protecting and preserving their assets for the future. His logical and compassionate approach helps clients through the emotional turmoil of custody cases while giving them the peace of mind to confidently make decisions that are in their children’s best interests.
