  • Dana Palmer

    I endorse this lawyer. Dawn is one of the best family law attorneys in Dallas. She is a wonderful human being and she does great work for her clients. I know that anyone I would refer to her would be taken great care of. She is also very willing to offer me a second opinion on a difficult case (and vice-versa) and I somewhat consider her part of my "Jedi Counsel". She is one of the best.
