Handling Your First Divorce Case Course

Emily Miskel directed the “Handling Your First (or Next) Divorce Case” course for the State Bar of Texas.  The course was held at the Texas Law Center in Austin on January 10, 2017.  She brought 14 lawyers and judges from across Texas to help train new lawyers and lawyers new to the practice of family law.

Judge Miskel moderated a judicial panel on “Advice from Judges on How to Present Your Case in Any Texas Court.”


AFCC Atlanta Symposium 

I had a great time speaking on Reunification Therapy and Court Orders with Dr. Aaron Robb, Christy Bradshaw Schmidt, and Dr. Susan Fletcher at the AFCC Symposium on Child Custody Evaluations in Atlanta. I learned a lot of practical information from the conference. 

Filing Day!

Today was the first day for candidates to file for a place on the Republican Primary ballot.  Judge Miskel and her family joined the crowd at Collin County GOP headquarters to officially put her name on the ballot.  It was exciting to see all of the candidates, and there was definitely a festive air at headquarters!


GCRW Board Selected

Golden Corridor Republican Women selected their board members for the 2016 year.  Judge Emily Miskel will again be serving on the board, in a new role as Literacy chair.  She is so excited to being a part of this incredible, hardworking organization that is having so much impact in Collin County.


The meeting was hosted by U.S. Congressman Louie Gohmert, who gave a humorous and informative talk about his efforts to pursue conservative change in Washington.



Afternoon Tea with Cecilia Abbott

Texas first lady Cecilia Abbott hosted a delightful afternoon tea in Frisco.  Many Collin County elected officials and organizations sponsored tables.  Rep. Jeff Leach invited Judge Emily Miskel to be at his table, along with several other Golden Corridor Republican Women board members.  The afternoon event was a fun and informal celebration of Abbott leadership.
