Review Jimmy Verner

About Me

My family law practice centers on five areas:
* Texas family law appeals
* Interstate jurisdictional disputes
* QDRO (Qualified Domestic Relations Orders) preparation and litigation
* Enforcement of divorce decrees, especially child support collection
* Grandparents' rights
For most matters, I offer a choice of hourly or flat fees. On occasion (and when allowed by lawyer disciplinary rules), I will take a case on a contingent fee basis.
