BOARD CERTIFIED AV RATED LEWISVILLE FAMILY LAWYER

 

Bill Neal’s main priority is – and always has been – to protect his clients at every turn. Whether negotiating a settlement to reach the best possible outcome or litigating a difficult battle in court, Bill’s there to provide his clients with unwavering support. The reason he practices law is simple: He loves to solve difficult problems and make his clients’ lives easier.

Even as a young child, Bill knew he wanted to be a lawyer. Today, he focuses on divorce cases involving large estates, family-owned businesses, and complicated custody arrangements, and he takes a special interest in protecting children from a convoluted legal process. He also handles contested probate and complicated estate litigation cases.

For Bill, the practice of family law is all worthwhile when he hears a client say, “I feel so much better now. I’m not so scared anymore.” To relieve someone’s panic and anxiety is what any true professional wants to accomplish, above all else, and that’s what motivates Bill to get his clients the best possible outcomes.

Bill knows that divorce can be a nightmare – and he strives to be a lifeline for his clients. Using the wisdom he’s acquired over the last five decades, he knows how to separate what will and won’t work in a family law case; he focuses on what’s right for his clients every step of the way. Bill and the other attorneys with North Texas Family Lawyers provide people with the tools they need to start a new life.

Best Family Lawyer in the Metroplex
I interviewed several lawyers and made the biggest mistake of my life by going with a different attorney and not hiring Bill Neal! I ended up spending a ton of money on my first attorney and hired Bill to finish the divorce. He did the best he could with where I was when I finally hired him. If I could do it again I would hire Bill Neal from the beginning and follow his guidance all the way through the process. It is a terrible thing to get divorced and it is so much worse with the wrong attorney!

Client Review
Posted by Bryan | August 9, 2011
A stand up guy and an honest man
Bill handled my divorce, and while that's not something I would want to endure again; if I were forced, he would be the man I would choose to guide me through it. Realistic, intelligent, caring, tough, and always in my corner. Couldn't ask for more.

Proud Father
I have to say that bill did a great job handling my case. Even with all of the things thrown at him by my Ex's lawyer that i even had no idea about, he stood his ground. First thing i told Bill before i hired him, is that I was looking for a lawyer with a backbone and he sure brought it. I will be using Mr. neal again in the near future and recommend anyone to do the same.
