Kathy D. Ongert
Ms. Ongert founded the firm of Dean & Ongert, P.C. in 1990 and has been a partner of the firm since that time. The firm name was changed to Ongert & Ongert in 2010. Although initially practicing in a wide variety of civil areas of the law, including bankruptcy, contract law, civil litigation, collections, wills and probate, and other areas, her practice has somewhat narrowed over time, to maximize her effectiveness.
Now, Ms. Ongert primarily practices family law and areas of practice that are attendant thereto. Ms. Ongert has a strong commitment to family values and believes in zealously representing her clients, while keeping a focus on the needs and well-being of the families involved in the litigation process.
Away from the office, Ms. Ongert enjoys her personal time with family, golfing, boating, gardening, biking, exercising and reading, believing that a good balance between business and personal life enriches and strengthen her ability to be her best to her clients and to herself.
As a mediator, Ms. Ongert serves the Galveston, Brazoria and Harris County areas, with respect to family law cases, and general civil litigation.
Ms. Ongert is professionally trained in the area of collaborative law, to assist those clients whose cases qualify for non-adversarial resolution.
