Family Law Leaders In Texas And Worldwide

Divorce, property division and children's issues are some of the most painful, complicated legal matters you will ever have to deal with. When these matters are international in nature, the complexity and potential for conflict can be even greater.

If you are facing unique legal challenges in Texas or abroad as an expat, it is critical that your attorney has the negotiation and trial skills necessary to protect your rights. Laura Dale & Associates, P.C., concentrates on solving serious problems related to family law. We invite you to learn more about our areas of practice.

Client Testimonials

  1. Simply put, Laura and her team are the best family law firm in Houston - if not the state of Texas. We found Laura as a result of calling one of the top international child custody attorneys in the country, and he recommended Laura – thank goodness he did! Our previous attorney was well over his head. Come to find out this is quite common with international cases. Laura and Ashley T. have a tremendous amount of knowledge in all types of family law. To watch them brainstorm and strategize around complex cases is truly remarkable. They have a way of making their clients feel in control even during the most stressful situations. We could not be happier with Laura and her team! Because of them – two little girls get to grow up in America. Thank you!

    P.S. – Special thank you to Jamie M. for the kind words throughout the process. Your words came during times when we needed them the most. - Richard Gomez

  2. Top flight representation. I had a simple matter, but needed it handled expeditiously, and without requiring me to travel to Houston.

    Melissa Aldape and her paralegal Pilar provided me with that and much more. She communicated clearly, advised me about my options, and was generally supportive through a difficult time. I give her the highest recommendation that I know of: I will use her again, and would encourage any of my friends to do so as well. - Steve Cohn

  3. Should you find yourself in the awful predicament of a divorce, I highly recommend asking to work with Deb Herndon and Valory Falke. My divorce was lengthy and overly contentious (I'm not sure there is another kind). These ladies would talk me off of the ledge and we'd find a way to solve the issue at hand. We were thrown a couple significant curve balls and Deb never wavered. I always felt confident that in the end there would be a fair and equitable dissolution to my marriage. There was and it is due to these ladies being diligent, prepared and extremely competent. - Shannon Carmichael

  4. I highly recommend Ms. Dale and her team. Ms. Dale is helping me through a difficult divorce and custody case. She is very knowledgeable, experienced, and can quickly make decisions. I am very impressed with her honesty and willingness to fight for her client. She is providing excellent legal advice and compassionate support during a very distressing time. - Michelle Payton
