About me

In Lené Alley DeRudder, clients find a tenacious advocate who helps them close one difficult chapter in their lives with as little harm as possible so they may begin the next one with more hope than imaginable.

Lené approaches family law by pursuing all possible avenues to resolve family law problems outside of the courtroom. Her goal is to minimize the emotional, mental, and financial costs for her clients. However, when issues are unyielding, Lené is a tenacious litigator in court, endlessly representing her clients’ interests to achieve positive results. Lené is especially passionate about protecting children and making sure their voices are heard by guiding parents to focus on their children’s long-term well-being.

Lené empathizes with clients and understands the strain that family law problems may cause. At the same time, Lené effectively assists her clients in moving beyond the unhealthy emotions of divorce, and other family law matters, in order to concentrate on their goals. She excels at working with clients to develop creative solutions for making their lives, and those of their children, enjoyable once again.
