Kathy Jane Erickson

Collin County Family Law Attorney
Former Assistant State Attorney

Special Prosecutor for Child Abuse/Sex Crimes Unit

My experience in Divorce, Family Law and all phases of domestic relations ranges from simple uncontested divorces to highly involved contested cases that require extensive preparation and litigation.

In Criminal Law areas I have extensive trial experience varying from misdemeanors to complex capital felonies.

I am licensed to practice law in both Texas and Florida. From my office in McKinney, Texas  I provide services of Divorce and Family Law in Collin County, Denton, Rockwall, and Grayson counties.

PERSONAL
In 2003 I became a Texan by marriage, moving from Florida to join my husband in McKinney. Together my husband and I have 9 children and 10 grandchildren between us. I am active in my church.

A  lawyer for over 20 years, I have practiced Divorce and Family Law exclusively for most of that time. In hundreds of jury trials and thousands of bench trials, I have provided highly competent and successful representation for my clients. I’ll do the same for you.

I feel a huge responsibility to each and every person I represent. You can count on me to be very well-prepared, highly competent, and straight-forward in my conversations with you. I make prompt communication with you a priority.

I would be happy to meet with you. Feel free to contact me for a consultation with no obligation. Click here for my Collin County Family Law Consultation line.
