Duane L. Coker is Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. CokerLegal opened in August 1998.
We chose to become a part of the Denton and Collin County Community because North Texas is a place that continues to embrace the traditional values of community. We are proud to be a part of a caring and connected society.
Our office believes in the importance of our clients. We strive to return your phone calls, answer your e-mails, remember your appointments, and treat you like the important person that you are. We will handle your divorce, or other family law, case with great care and enthusiasm and work closely with you to help you achieve your goals.
Our office assists clients in many ways:
Duane L. Coker and his associates, Kelly K. Erickson and Jacqueline D. Cannon, are Denton, Texas lawyers who represent clients in family law cases. More than just Texas divorce lawyers, our office helps clients with child custody litigation, adoption, child support, modifications, and juvenile cases.
We also handle probate litigation, including guardianships, probating Wills, and Will contests.
One of our areas of practice which we are most excited about is assisting clients with Collaborative Law cases. In these cases, clients agree to settle their case with the opposing party in a dignified and efficient manner without contested Court proceedings.
Duane L. Coker, Kelly K. Erickson, and Jacqueline D. Cannon are trained in Collaborative Law. Duane is a charter member of the Collaborative Law Institute of Texas and is active in both local and international Collaborative Law groups.
We are happy to assist you in any of our primary law practice areas.
