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.
