Seasoned and Skilled Attorney with a Unique Background

Isabela Amie Garcia was born and raised in Mexico. Fulfilling her dream to play and win on the professional tennis tour, she traveled extensively throughout Latin America, Mexico, and the United States. After achieving her goals on tour she soon realized that her true calling was the law. She subsequently enrolled in the University of Texas at Austin and graduated with honors in the studies of philosophy and business. She then went on to excel at the University of Oxford at which she studied International Tax Law, European Union Law, and International Constitutional Law.

She earned her Juris Doctorate at Southern Methodist University School of Law with emphasis on Sports Law, Corporate Law and International Law. Isabela’s highly regarded internships included The Office of the Texas Attorney General, Honorable Carl Ginsberg of the 193rd Civil District Court in Dallas County, and Honorable Sam A. Lindsay of U.S. District Court in the Northern District of Texas. She also served under Marc J. Steinberg, Senior Associate Dean for Research and Professor of Law, researching SEC compliance issues. Ms. Garcia relates through personal experience to all cultural, ethnic, and economic groups.

Since early on in her practice Isabela has been devoted exclusively to family law and has been able to successfully represent high profile clients. She attributes her success to her faith, professional athlete mentality, personal experiences, connection to the local community, key relationships, and "dream team" law firm members and legal advisors. Her mentors include some of the greatest names in family law such as Adelfa Callejo and John v. McShane.
