NANCY WYLIE

Paralegal

Born a self-described military brat, Nancy grew up in Southern California and Okinawa, Japan. She may not have been born a Texan, but she got here as soon as she could, moving to San Antonio in 2013, where she has spent the last six years doing her passion - working on family law cases. She may have been born a "brat" but Nancy's become a fierce advocate for our clients. Nancy is the proud mother of two beautiful and talented daughters, and in her spare time, she enjoys the outdoors, traveling, cooking, and fitness!

Reagan

REAGAN

Firm Mascot / Therapy Dog

Justin rescued Reagan from a shelter 12 years ago (some say Reagan rescued Justin). The rest is history! Reagan spends most days lounging around the office waiting to greet clients, and loves to go on walks around downtown so he can visit his 'regulars' with tasty treats waiting. Reagan is a real therapy dog, and has frequently comforted clients and children who are in times of great stress. He'd love to get a hug from you, and would love a treat even more!

Reagan doesn't have email, but you can send treats!
