Andrew J. Anderson

About me

After practicing for almost a decade at well-respected Dallas law firms, Andrew J. Anderson decided to form Anderson Legal Group, P.C.  The focus of the new firm was to assist clients in family law related matters (such as divorce, custody, adoptions, premarital agreements, wills and child support issues) and/or criminal defense matters.  These particular cases are extremely stressful for the client and often plague clients until they are resolved.  Mr. Anderson explains all options available to the clients, which empowers them to make good decisions during these difficult times.

Mr. Anderson supplemented his legal education with an extensive hearing and trial practice.  Specifically, he has tried numerous cases before the Judges of Tarrant, Dallas, Denton, and Collin county courts.  Further, Mr. Anderson often writes and presents seminars to teach other attorneys through the Texas Bar Association’s Continuing Legal Education programs.  Mr. Anderson is also Board Certified in Family Law which is the highest award for specialized competence issued by the State Bar of Texas.

Mr. Anderson represents clients by listening to their goals, and then creating a specifically tailored roadmap for achieving their goals as quickly as possible.  He firmly believes that clients must be thoroughly informed, and then he strives to develop and present all possible options.  When an attorney offers all possible options, along with the potential outcomes, it allows the client to make informed decisions about their case.  Due to Mr. Anderson's extensive courtroom experience, clients are confident that if their case cannot be resolved before trial, that Mr. Anderson will work to receive all possible relief from the Judge.

Mr. Anderson is respected by Texas attorneys and judges.  For the amount of time he has been licensed, Mr. Anderson has received the highest peer review rating as established by Martindale-Hubble (for both ethics and legal competence).  Further, Mr. Anderson is a member of the College of the State Bar of Texas which is a prestigious group of lawyers that pride themselves in exceeding the minimum requirements for continuing legal education.
