About me

William F. Neal specializes in complex family law matters such

as large estates, divorces involving family-owned businesses

and complicated custody arrangements. Neal’s approach to

his practice is simple: protect and fight for the client, whether

in settlement or trial. His commitment to continuing legal

education keeps him on the forefront of changes in family law

and how those changes impact his clients. Neal takes special

interest in protecting children from a convoluted legal process,

offering objective counsel and a caring perspective.

Neal is board-certified in family law by the Texas Board of Legal

Specialization. He is a member of the Texas Academy of Family Law

Specialists and the Annette Stewart Inns of Court. In 2009 Neal

volunteered with the Texas Family Law Foundation serving as a

nonpartisan educational resource for family law related bills in the

Texas Legislature. He has an AV-rating from Martindale-Hubbell and is named in 2009 Texas Super Lawyers®.
