About me

Welcome! Relationship matters. That is why I am a "personal attorney" to those who entrust their affairs to me. Aside from my 34 years of diverse legal experience, I am a former partner in a major downtown-Dallas lawfirm  who practices in state and federal courts in the North Texas area as well as in private transactional areas. My clients have ranged from high-profile nationally acclaimed non-profit and for-profit entities to lcal small and mid-sized businesses to private individuals.  I am accessible by telehone without layers of support staff. You will never be "just a number" so feel free to call me.

  • Mervin B. Waage

    I endorse this lawyer's work. I know William "Cliff" Couch to be an honest, hardworking attorney. I can share with you that if I were in any legal dispute, I would want Attorney Couch to be "in my corner". Attorney Couch is very highly respected by attorneys and judges alike. Moreover, he is not only respected in the court room but his legal drafting skills, especially in the probate area, are excellent. Respectfully, Merv Waage, Denton, Texas
