Quality Defense from a Family Law Specialist

In a divorce, it could not be more important that you have top quality legal representation. The division of the marital assets is a matter of great concern, and when it comes down to "who gets what," you can be confident in our ability to press forward and negotiate fair terms in a settlement agreement, or to present a case to the court that is persuasive, well-crafted and more likely to get a positive outcome.

Several of our Pearland divorce attorneys are classified as "specialists" in the field of family law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. They are Board-Certified family lawyers with relevant experience and ability in that field of law. This certification only belongs to around 7,000 of the 70,000 lawyers in the state of Texas.

It is a voluntary process that requires numerous qualifications to be met, including having been licensed for at least five years and having passed a lengthy examination. Not only are we passionate about helping our clients in Pearland, but we are also extremely qualified to handle their cases with care and success.
