Child support attorney and former state lawmaker Todd Litz, who served as a state senator and U.S. senator, is now a partner at New York-based law firm Litz Law.
Litz, 46, is also a lawyer at Jones Day and a former president of the Texas Family Policy Council.
He also has a law degree from Texas Southern University and is the founder of the family law firm, Litz Litz & Jones, in Austin, Texas.
Liz, who represents some of the state’s most vulnerable families, said he was attracted to child support law because he has been involved in criminal cases where there were serious consequences to child abuse, neglect and exploitation.
Child support law allows the state to collect child support payments from both parents who are married and are raising children together.
The state can also collect child-support payments from unmarried parents.
Litz said that because of the seriousness of the cases he has worked on, he knows what it takes to win a case and has the expertise to handle the complexities of child support cases.
Lutz said his primary goal is to help those who are victims of child abuse or neglect, who have been neglected, and who are facing significant financial obligations.
In a statement, Liz said he had no interest in becoming a public relations consultant or in advising other lawyers about their legal strategies.
He added that he is not affiliated with any legal organization, including the American Bar Association.
