Susan Myres

Myres & Associates, PLLC


As a practitioner of family law in Houston for over 40 years, Susan Myres has never had what she would call a “routine” case. “The intellectual challenges are continuous,” she says, “with unique problems to be solved daily.” Her practice includes litigation, mediation, arbitration and collaborative law—whatever works best for the individual case. Memberships in the AAML and the International Academy of Family Lawyers (IAFL) offer her constant learning, helpful networking and global resources.
