Ilana knew that one day she would become a lawyer. Her mother and father are both attorneys and are both excellent examples of conscientious and dedicated lawyers. And though the relationship she has with her parents and younger brother is very close-knit, she decided to move to Austin in 2005 to attend the University of Texas. Ilana majored in Communication Studies and Government, while also managing to attend every home UT football game.
Ilana fell in love with Austin and decided to stay here for law school. While attending the University of Texas School of Law, Ilana completed internships at the City of Austin Law Department, the Travis County Attorney’s Office, the Office of the Governor, the Four Seasons Hotel and Spa, the Travis District Attorney’s Office, and the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. She also worked for multiple family attorneys and developed a strong interest in family law. Ilana completed two semesters of the Children’s Rights Clinic in Law School, where she represented children as an attorney ad litem in cases where the state was seeking termination of parental rights.
Ilana opened her own solo family law practice in 2013 practicing exclusively family law. Ilana’s cases are an equal mix of divorces, child custody modifications and adoptions. Ilana also represents both children and parents in Travis and Williamson Counties regarding Child Protective Services cases.
In her spare time, Ilana enjoys spending time with her two rescue dogs, Crockett and Max. Ilana has received the client’s choice award on AVVO.com for divorce and child custody cases. Ilana shows extreme compassion while dealing with her client’s who are going through very difficult and traumatic times in their lives.
