It all began in 1964, when John H. Withers graduated from SMU Law School and hung out a shingle in downtown Dallas with his law school buddy Dick Harrison. Soon thereafter, John and Dick were joined by the legendary Reagan Martin and practiced together in one form or another for many years. Dick handled primarily criminal cases, while John and Reagan concentrated on family law (Domestic Relations, as it was known then.
In 1987, John Withers, Jr. was licensed to practice law and went to work for John Vance, the elected District Attorney of Dallas County, Texas. That same year, John Sr. went into solo practice, practicing primarily in the area of family law. After 5-1/2 years with the DA’s Office, John Jr. went to work for a civil firm, practicing primarily in the area of insurance defense until 1996.
On April 1, 1996, John H. Withers and John Withers, Jr. formed the law firm of Withers & Withers, P.C. John Sr. continued to practice primarily in the area of family law, while John Jr. had a general practice but focusing primarily in the areas of family law and criminal law.

In 2011, John Jr.’s son Robert was licensed to practice law and went to work for the Lubbock County District Attorney’s Office.
On July 7, 2014, Robert Withers returned to his home town of Dallas and joined the law firm of Withers & Withers, P.C. to form a family law boutique with his father and grandfather.
