Patricia “Pat” DeVeau is a native San Antonion who has primarily practiced family law for twenty-five plus years in San Antonio Texas. She has been a certified family law mediator since 1993. What separates Pat from other mediators is her extensive experience representing mothers, fathers, and children in cases involving child abuse and neglect. A passionate and dedicated San Antonio mediation lawyer, she is committed to helping families resolve even the worst of their issues.
She has a stellar reputation with the Courts in Bexar County and surrounding areas as a Court appointed amicus attorney and Ad Litem representing the best interest of the children. She has played a vital role in that regard through her extensive investigation work involving highly contentious child custody disputes. Pat’s friendly personality and unique approach with clients lends itself to handling delicate issues involving tough family law matters that must be resolved.
Pat is now mediating at the J. Guerra Mediation Center on a solo mediation basis and as a co-mediator with mediator, Jesse Guerra, on extremely complex divorce/custody matters. Pat and Jesse are true pioneers of co-mediation family law cases in San Antonio Texas.
