Lehrmann has authored multiple published articles and received the Texas Bar Foundation’s best-bar journal article nod in 2003 for a treatise focusing on ways to meaningfully involve children as they move through court proceedings.
Lehrmann is married to real estate attorney Greg Lehrmann. They have two grown sons.
