Ms. Fabio, who is board certified in family law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, currently restricts her practice to family law areas, such as divorce, child custody, support, modifications of prior orders and adoptions. She appears primarily in Harris and Fort Bend counties, although occasionally appear in Brazoria, Galveston & Montgomery, as well as other counties. Her philosophy is to listen closely to what the client says and respond to his or her needs, taking cues from the client about the course and direction of that client's case. Each person is an individual and has different needs and circumstances. With her 39 years of legal experience and within the parameters of legal ethics, she will recommend the best course of action for the client, taking into account the best interests of the children (if any) and the tremendous stress and familial upset that occurs during this period of time.

Ms. Fabio understands that a divorce will be a difficult time for her clients and she will help the client focus on long-term goals such as custody of the children and financial stability. She represents both men and women and works to obtain the best settlement for each client's individual needs. Ms. Fabio will represent each client with compassion and dedication while at the same time maintaining the highest standard of professionalism.

Ms. Fabio was named one of the Top Lawyers in Houston by H Magazine 2008-2018 and voted one of the top family lawyers from 2006-2018.
