About me

Mr. Palmer has experience in many areas of law including family law, estate planning, business litigation, business creation, criminal defense, personal injury and a variety of other matters. Now, he and his firm focus on helping people get a Soft Divorce® – because divorce doesn’t have to be so hard®.

Mr. Palmer and his wife, Summer, regularly attend the Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano and participate in bible studies there.

"I’m always looking for a better way to do something, then I want to share that with others. The reason I do what I do is because I believe a Soft Divorce® is better than a hard divorce. It’s my life’s mission to help people get through the divorce process in the healthiest way possible."
