Most family law firms limit themselves to a small area. We don't believe in that, since the Texas Family Code applies in all 254 counties. We are able to cover all of Texas because the law is the same and one of our offices is usually nearby. If not, there is always Southwest Airlines or a car.
Many lawyers fear the unknown, especially practicing in front of Judges or other attorneys they aren't familiar with. We have also found that our District Judges in Texas remarkably similar, regardless of where they live. They are intelligent individuals who are usually committed to doing their job. They want what is best for children, although different people on different days can see the same thing a bit differently. We have yet to see a Judge purposely do a child wrong or commit reversible error because of where they live.
We have also found that we can deal with any lawyer. The Texas Rules of Civil Procedure applies in all 254 counties as well. We're all operating under the same rules, which are applied pretty consistently across the state. Being a good lawyer is about half paying attention to detail, and half natural talent. We do both, and are fine anywhere.
Brian & Jake grew up in pretty normal families, and can relate to most anyone. They both live in large cities, but spent a lot of time with family members in rural Texas and small towns. We treat everyone with respect, and that goes a long way when we're on unfamiliar territory.
Our Houston office is located downtown at the Lyric Centre Building at 440 Louisiana St., Houston, TX 77002. We are in Suite 2450 and have expanded to include Suite 723 in the same building.
