Innovations Conference

I had a fabulous time speaking at the Innovations course put on by the State Bar of Texas and the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. Thursday, I spoke on “Defending the Accused,” and Friday, I spoke on “Trial of a Custody Case.” This conference is great for bringing together lawyers and mental health/forensic experts to explore child custody issues in depth.

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!
