Crystal was born and raised on the Westside of San Antonio, and started at the Law Office of Lisa Vance in 2016, after working in two other San Antonio-based law firms, specializing in family law, probate law, and property law, as well as at the Bexar County District Attorney’s Office, where she prosecuted criminal cases and continued her passion for advocacy in the courtroom.
Crystal loves family law because of the opportunity it gives her to help families. She says, “My mother was divorced and it was one of the hardest things that my family ever had to go through. It had lasting effects on her and my little brother. I want to do everything that I can to help with easing the process of divorce and changing family arrangements.”
She wants clients to know that she has extremely high ethical standards that she brings to her work with her clients and her interactions with opposing counsel. She also prides herself on always being honest with clients, even if it’s to convey difficult news. In addition to being a “cat and dog parent,” she gave birth to her first child in December 2016—and therefore won’t be as readily available for cases until March 2017.
