The BEST Family Lawyer
Alyssa was exactly what we were looking for in a family lawyer. She was excellent in communicating the plan for our case and executed it perfectly for an amazing result in our custody trial. If you are looking for the best family lawyer in the DFW area than Alyssa is your attorney.

Very wise Counsel
I recently hired Alyssa to handle my estate planning. Her ability to listen, comprehend and guide me through complex matters is what separates a great attorney from a good one. I will use Alyssa to handle all of my future family and estate legal matters.

Red headed Shark!!!
Alyssa handled my custody case with extreme passion, she clearly loves what she does! From the first time In her office I was updated constantly with how my case was going, and she never did anything without consulting me first. The case was definitely contentious but Alyssa made sure that I ended up with all of the things I asked for. From temporary orders to final orders I was extremely happy with her diligence towards my case. I would recommend her to anyone who asks about a family law attorney.

Always on your side
Alyssa has represented us for several years. We have always been able to rely on her to provide us the facts needed and she worked closely with us to ensure our goal was met. She and her team have always been professional and easy to work with. Even with pandemic restrictions we never felt that our needs were not being met. I highly recommend Alyssa knowing that she will take care of you and your family.

Attention to detail matters!
***Attention to detail matters in family court, Alyssa Herrington who represented me in my divorce case provided the highest level of care to the evidence and facts within my case leading to a much more favorable ruling. If you are going though a divorce with kids and dealing with a complicated custody battle, understand you will need someone who is relentless in pursuing a fair outcome. Alyssa listened carefully and coached me through the entire process. When my case finalized I felt that it wasn't just a win for me but a small win of some sort for all the alienated fathers out there fighting to be part of their children's lives. I am grateful to have had Alyssa and this firm's excellence by my side.
