  • For a divorce, can one lawyer represent both of us?

    The law permits lawyers to represent both sides of a dispute with proper disclosure and waivers; however, it is never a good idea. Our divorce lawyers in Dallas TX have a policy of only representing one side of a divorce.

  • Can I get a second opinion in my case?

    The ethical rules at our Dallas law firms only permit a lawyer to discuss a case with a person represented by another lawyer with the permission of the other lawyer.

  • Can you get a legal separation in Texas?

    No. Texas does not recognize legal separation. The closest thing Texas has to legal separation is temporary orders made by the court after the divorce is on file. Contact our divorce lawyers in Dallas for more assistance.

  • Why do I need a will?

    Your will is more than just a document that directs who gets your property upon your death. Just as importantly, it names the person who will administer your estate and carry out your wishes under the will. It can also establish guardianship for your children, create trusts, and reduce, or even eliminate, federal taxes.

    Our lawyers in Dallas TX are experts in personal legal documents.

  • What is collaborative law?

    Collaborative law is a relatively new process which allows both parties to a divorce to meet together with their attorneys and advisors in order to work through the division of assets, conservatorship of children, and a number of other issues that arise during the course of a divorce. The collaborative process allows everyone to work together as a team to come to a solution without involving the court system.
