About Me

Over the course of his 20-year career,  family law attorney Laurence DePlaza has earned a reputation for effectively handling difficult issues that can arise during the dissolution of a marriage, including complex property division problems, child custody disputes involving allegations of domestic violence, drug or alcohol abuse, or serious parental shortcomings, and enforcement of child support or spousal support commitments that have gone into default.

He is also board certified** in family law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and has held leadership positions in many state and national organizations for family law attorneys.
