While we are proud to say that we have been able to successfully help our clients negotiate agreed resolutions to the vast majority of their family law cases, it is important to know that all of our attorneys have ample experience and winning records in the courtroom as well.

The Firm’s attorneys also have experience representing family members or other parties intervene in an ongoing CPS case to seek custody of a child involved in the CPS system. Additionally, Founding Partner Ian Pittman has served on the board of the Austin Bar Association's CAFA Section since 2012.
