The CokerLegal offices opened in August 1998.
We chose to become a part of the Denton Community because we find Denton to be a place that continues to embrace the traditional values of community. We are proud to be a part of a caring and connected society.
Our office believes in the importance of our clients. We strive to return your phone calls, answer your e-mails, remember your appointments, and treat you like the important person that you are.
Likewise, our office will put forth the same determination and willpower that motivated Duane L. Coker and his wife, Louellen, on their 24-day hike to the base of the highest mountain in the world. With this determination at work for you, you will receive the attention, service, and results you deserve.
Duane L. Coker and shareholders, Kelly K. E. Robb and Jacqueline D. Cannon, along with associates Kimberly Killebrew, Bonnie Bundens, Marci Martinez and Peggy Rensberger, are Denton County and Collin County Texas lawyers who represent clients in family law cases. More than just Texas divorce lawyers, our office helps clients with child custody litigation, adoption, child support, modifications, and juvenile cases.
We also handle probate litigation, including guardianships, probating Wills, and Will contests.
With the presence of the Denton State School and several senior communities, Denton County has one of the highest per capita rates for guardianship cases in Texas. Our Statutory Probate Court strictly enforces the requirements of the Texas Probate Code that guardianships be tailored in the least restrictive fashion possible. Hiring a Denton, Texas lawyer, familiar with the specific requirements of the Denton County Statutory Probate Court, is a good first step in obtaining the guardianship you need to help your loved ones in his or her time of need.
One of our areas of practice which we are most excited about is assisting clients with Collaborative Law cases. In these cases, clients agree to settle their case with the opposing party in a dignified and efficient manner without contested Court proceedings.
Duane L. Coker, Kelly K. E. Robb, and Jacqueline D. Cannon are trained in Collaborative Law. Duane is a charter member of the Collaborative Law Institute of Texas and is active in both local and international Collaborative Law groups.
We are happy to assist you in any of our primary law practice areas.
