Stellar Lawyer
Divorce and child custody issues is not an easy process, but Sharita and Desiree are hidden gems in the DFW metroplex. Sharita’s pleasant demeanor and candor is something I valued from my initial consultations. Pricing and policies during the initial intake process sets expectations from the beginning for the lawyer and client relationship. The firm accommodates remote and virtual meetings which is an efficient use of time and resources. Desiree responds timely to any concerns you bring up. I have admired in Desiree her honesty and support. She always presents you with options (if available) and empowers the client to make the decision that is in their best interest. Never once have I felt obligated to do something because “my lawyer told me so.” Rather she discusses even difficult subjects with respect and openness. Desiree is thorough and detail oriented. She is not last minute when preparing for cases that may go to trial. What I have valued is that I was not just her client but truly appreciative of the open collaboration. Finally, Desiree is respectful both “on and off the field”- in front of the judge, when interacting with opposing counsel(s), and all parties involved. I respect her for always maintaining her professional decorum. Sharita & Desiree-thank you for your patience, honesty, and respect as families navigate through these difficult situations.

I was referred to Mrs. Blacknall through a close friend. The best decision I ever made was hiring Mrs. Sharita Blacknall to work my family case. From her staff all the way up to meeting her was very polite and professional. She only represented me but was all about what was best not just for me but my children as well. She did not keep me out of the loop and kept me informed each step of the way. The outcome was great and it did not hurt my pockets. I am forever grateful for Mrs. Blacknall and I highly recommend her.

Sharita is efficient and does a great job for her clients.
I had the pleasure of working with Sharita Blacknell on a number of different occasions. She represented me for a traffic ticket and a divorce. In both situations, she also made sure to communicate with me, provide me with status updates and prepared me with all the provided with all possible outcomes. This helped place my mind at ease. She is a person of integrity.
