The purpose of Lex Mater is to discuss legal questions and circumstances that arise in our everyday lives, including the laws that affect our family life, workplace, schools, and personal finances.
Lex Mater is published by Siobhán Fitzpatrick Kratovil,* a former BigLaw lawyer turned stay-at-home mom and solo attorney. Siobhán practices in the Dallas area and specializes in advising small businesses on their legal rights, responsibilities, and obligations, and providing basic estate planning services for families with young children.
I am probably too old for anyone to care where I went to school, but I am a graduate of The University of Texas School of Law (“Hook ‘Em”). After law school, I worked for many years at two of the largest law firms in Dallas before leaving BigLaw life after the birth of my fourth child.
* Outside of Ireland, Siobhán is tough name to pronounce and spell. It’s pronounced “Sha-von.”
