Priyanka Bins

Associate

I was born and raised in Sugar Land, Texas, however I moved to Houston as soon as I could. After graduating high school, I went on to attend The University of Texas San Antonio, where I discovered my love for writing. While in university, I began taking creative writing courses, eventually designating my major to English with an Emphasis in Creative Writing. While honing my craft, I also worked as the Features Editor of UTSA's student-run newspaper, The Paisano, and as an editor at the UTSA Writing Center, helping my peers with their writing assignments. At the tail end of my senior year, I submitted one of my short stories, "A Change of Address," to the university-wide writing and art competition. Selected authors, poets, artists, and photographers would be published in the regional journal, Sagebrush Review. To my genuine surprise, I was selected as the first place winner of the fiction portion of the competition, and both my short story and a poem I submitted were published, effectively kicking off my passion for creative writing!

I graduated with Honors in English, and headed back to Houston to begin my legal career at South Texas College of Law. After completing my first year, I applied for membership with the South Texas Law Review to nourish my writing skills, and was accepted. I graduated from South Texas College of Law in 2012 and became a licensed attorney later that year.

While snagging a law degree at South Texas College of Law was my number one priority, I was fortunate enough to meet my husband there as well. After dating for four years, he proposed on the beautiful Greek island of Santorini. Our big, fat, Indian nuptials followed, and we've been happily married ever since. Both avid travelers, my husband and I try to ensure that we see one new country each year, exploring the world one trip at a time!

Currently, my husband and I live in Houston with our beloved two-year old chocolate lab mix puppy, Otis. While we want to start a family some day, my focus now is to help the families who need me. I am an experienced attorney in all aspects of family law, including custody issues, CPS matters, divorces, and adoptions. I also have experience in the role of mediator, amicus attorney, and ad litem attorney. With a strong writing background, and passion for family law, I strive to be an aggressive and effective advocate for each of my clients.

How We Treat Our Clients

When it comes to our clients, we have a unique approach—an approach our lawyers have cultivated after representing thousands of clients over the years. When you trust your family law case to our competent team of Texas divorce attorneys, we offer:

  • Direct Contact With Our Attorneys

    You deserve direct and frequent communication with your attorney, not staff. As attorney practices grow, the usual reaction is to hire more staff. We’ve been guilty of the same thing in the past, but we learned and improved. The problem with this approach is attorneys get isolated from clients and spend most of their time managing the staff (at the client’s expense). We’ve now structured our offices so that you will be dealing with an attorney on all matters, not an employee of the attorneys.

  • Fearless Use of the Court System

    Many attorneys fail to use the court system to their clients’ advantage. In fact, many will shy away from trial and try to convince their clients to settle when a better outcome can likely be achieved in court. The reason for this is that a court hearing is stressful for the attorney, difficult to predict, and may expose the attorney’s limitations. We will not pressure you into a bad settlement; in fact, we’ve found that our clients get a better outcome when we present their case to a judge or jury.

  • The Truth, Even When It Hurts

    Attorneys, like everyone, tend to tell people what they want to hear. This is especially true at the beginning of representation (to get you signed up). We don’t think this is helpful to clients, and in fact, it harms a client’s case. We are not shy about telling our clients what we think they need to do. As a client of our firm, you will get the truth—good or bad—from us at all times.

  • Strong Legal Guidance

    The most difficult time you will ever have making the right decisions is in the middle of a family law dispute. Many clients either want to rush things and get them over with, or they want to avoid conflict with the other side. We don't shy away from telling the client what we think is the best course of action. Of course, what to do is ultimately up to our clients, but they never lack for strong, helpful guidance.
