Anyone who has ever been through a divorce or family law dispute in Texas knows first-hand that the laws are complex and the emotional investment can be frustrating. While there is no shortage of very qualified lawyers who offer family law services, finding the right one is often more challenging than most people first think.
Experience Matters, But It's The Focus That Makes The Difference
I am attorney Amy T. Ford. My approach to family law practice actually began before I passed the Texas State Bar, back when I was still in law school at the Texas A&M University School of Law. I had the opportunity to work at the school's legal clinic, providing services for people who did not have access to an attorney. When I opened my own law firm, my only focus was on family law, and it still is today.
While working at the legal clinic, I quickly realized how much the lawyer can impact the outcome of a divorce or custody matter. I also discovered that each case brings a unique set of circumstances.
