Jeryl A. Golub has practiced family law in Texas since 1995. After earning her Juris Doctorate from Northeastern University School of Law in Boston, Massachusetts, Jeryl moved to Houston with her husband and joined the law firm of Fulbright & Jaworski L.L.P. practicing exclusively family law. Over the course of her nearly 12 year tenure at Fulbright & Jaworski L.L.P., Jeryl gained experience handling cases involving complex property disputes, child possession and access matters, and premarital and marital property agreements, and worked closely with not only family law attorneys, but also probate and general litigation attorneys of the firm throughout the United States.
While at Fulbright, Jeryl was a co-author and presenter of numerous continuing legal education articles on various family law topics, including interstate jurisdictional issues and post-divorce spousal maintenance. She was also an active member and director of local bar organizations, and served as the Chair of the Family Law Section of the Houston Bar Association and Director of the Houston Volunteer Lawyers Program. She was instrumental in the creation of the Pro Se Family Law Clinic, serving the underprivileged community of Houston.
Throughout her career at Fulbright, Harry and Angela Pence England had the pleasure to work with Jeryl on various legal and bar matters and were pleased when she chose to return to the practice by joining Tindall England in November 2009.
Jeryl grew up in Needham, Massachusetts, and received a B. A. in Psychology from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, where she met her husband Jeff Golub, a native Houstonian. Jeryl took a sabbatical from the practice of law beginning in 2006, to devote 100% of her attention to raising her three children, and became intimately involved in the children’s school. She is currently a member of the Board of Trustees for The Shlenker School and the Co-President of the Parent-Teacher Organization.
