In most lifetimes, we have one or two and sometimes three incredible accomplishments that we are immensely proud of. Fran Brochstein has a lifetime of these awe-inspiring accomplishments. The Houston, Texas attorney is a member of the International Alliance of Holistic Lawyers. The goal for this esteemed group is to adopt a holistic approach to divorces, child custody issues and other family legalities that are by nature traumatic and often result in compromises that don't meet the needs of the parties involved. With a belief that divorces can be resolved in a peaceful manner, Brochstein has redefined the methods traditionally used in divorce and custody cases and as a result, her clients are better for the experience as they co-parent children and begin their separate lives.
Brochstein is an active member of the Houston Bar Association and has served on countless committees aimed at bettering her community. She has extensive training in collaborative law and mediation and is a licensed mediator for southeast Texas. Licensed by the Texas Supreme Court, its clear Brochstein is truly passionate about her chosen career path. Since 1998, she has maintained her own law office that solely focuses on family law. Before opening her own law firm, she tackled the difficult intricacies involved with corporate litigation cases as well as serving as a general civil practice attorney.
Her educational achievements are impressive, as well. After attending the University of Texas in Austin, she then attended summer school at the Tulane Law School in Jerusalem, Israel and received her degree from one of the largest and oldest private law schools in the country, South Texas College of Law. Among her many professional affiliations, Brochstein is also a member of the Gulf Coast Collaborative Law Network and Delta Theta Phi Law Fraternity, Houston Alumni.
During her time as a law student, Brochstein played a role in the AIDS Project, which was still in its infancy at that time. After graduating, Brochstein worked in a full-time capacity as the Aids Project became one of the premiere AIDS legals services in the country. It was featured in a video distribution effort to attorneys across the United States that encouraged lawyers in all sectors to volunteer their specialties in an effort to assist low-income and otherwise indigent clients. In this capacity, she wrote grants, recruited other attorneys to volunteer their time and efforts, represented the program across the U.S., coordinated activities with various bar associations and worked with those affected with HIV/AIDS and their families. These efforts included assisting with wills, bankruptcies, insurance issues and landlord/tenant issues. She insists it is has been one of the most rewarding and satisfying experiences of her life.
Her other incredible accomplishments and proud roles include being a mother and an ordained Minister through the Universal Life Church.
These accomplishments and her faith in the legal system make Fran Brochstein the model Law Job Star inductee. For more information on Fran Brochstein and her law practice, visit http://www.familylaw4u.com/index.php
