Laura Dale has been my Family Law attorney since 2003. While sad that I have needed a Family Law attorney that long, I am happy to have found her as she has seen me through a divorce, 3 custody challenges (2 of which went to trial), and my last divorce caused by the strain of the challenges just named. The first divorce was simple and she handled it as quickly and positioned me well as the subsequent custody hearings turned out to be very, very complex.
Laura was able to navigate through all of the challenges to my role as the primary parent including CPS spite complaints and attacks on my child’s medical providers. Her 10 years of working in neuropsychology allowed her to understand and manage all of the nuances involving multiple therapists, pain management physicians, and a very clinical situation. She was able to recognize all of the underlying causes and how to deal with each issue in a very competent legal manner that protected all involved.
She has a very open and direct approach and always looks out for her clients’ interests, whatever those interest might be, particularly the child in a custody dispute. Her sense of right and wrong will not only extend to opposing counsel, but she will use it to make sure that you are in check during one of the emotionally challenging situations anyone can face. When I get off track and respond emotionally, she will redirect me to what is best for my son and me. She does not hesitate to tell me when I am wrong, when I am right, or when I am sticking to a point that is less than productive. She came up with and designed alternative actions and language to protect and help my son after specific rulings, and she fought like hell more than once when opposing counsel was getting off track with a potentially harmful request. She set expectations and was able to deliver.
I continue to use her without question and recommend her without hesitation.

Ms. Dale came highly recommended. She is compassionate and delightful to work with. We came up against very aggressive, well prepared legal opposition and she did all that was within her capacity to represent me. I was presented with unexpected legal charges following mediation.

It is without hesitation, I recommend Laura Dale as professional in family Law and International Custody, she is very knowledgeable and counts with a great staff that supports her all the time in many different ways: since keeping all sort of documents very well organized and handy which is key during long legal litigation to providing her with specialized expertise in other areas which makes her practice be very resourceful.
But, if there is something remarkable I have to say about her, is the kind of person beyond her title she is; driven by Ethic, passionate about Justice and Honor; always "on call" to assist and advice. It is well known Divorce is a very stressful and emotional situation; in my particular case, immigration issues, unsheltered with family abroad and alone in the EEUU; Laura and her team were all the time present to bring me legal assistance but more than that “HOPE” in an atmosphere of trust. If there are people who advocates for fairness, Laura is one of them…
I feel grateful for have met her.

Laura did not win my case and my recommendation is not based on a win. Laura is professional, ethical, and an excellent litigator. I changed attorneys and she was handed a huge deficit. She managed to make a lot of progress and was always available for guidance and personal support when I needed it most. I am forever grateful for her services.

Unfortunately, my child custody sitaution was one that required repeated trips to the courthouse, and Laura worked on my case for several years. She is still the first call that I make if I have any issues or concerns, and she is the first call I tell my friends to make. She is honest, knowlegable, and well-respected at the courthouse. Family law matters occupy a unique area of the law because the clients are dealing with such difficult, emotional issues. It takes a special person to manage the emotions of the client and the legal battle at the same time; Laura does this very well.

Laura did an excellent job handling a very complex case. She balances caring and objectivity well, as she is both personable and professional. Laura wields experience combined with fresh, creative solutions to achieve the best possible results for her clients.
I hired her because of her excellent credentials, and have recommended her to friends and colleagues because she earned my trust and respect. Laura delivered.

Unfortunately my case was one that went in front of a judge numerous time for a number of different issues. Because of that, I got to watch Laura work in front of the judge and that was an eye opener. You definitely want her on your side. Besides her qualities in front of a judge she was a great client manager and was always available even late into the evening. I high highly recommend Laura Dale and Associates.

Laura Dale handled my international child custody and divorce matter. I am an attorney in Houston and was referred to her by other attorneys. She is used by attorneys which says a lot about her skill, reputation, integrity, and ability to get results. She is solid and is very knowledgeable, respected, dependable, no-nonsense, and truthful. She was always available for my questions and kept open communication throughout the entire process. She is well-respected by judges and other attorneys. She saved my family, and I cannot say enough about what she did for me and my child. She is absolutely, without question the person you want in your corner fighting for you.

Laura was not the first attorney that my husband and I interviewed for an extremely complex child custody issue involving a grand child. After our first meeting, however, I knew we had found the right attorney. I had expected a cursory appointment to discuss the basics of our case. What we received was a 2 hour meeting where Laura meticulously catalogued as much information as possible in order to understand the ENTIRE situation. She was very easy to talk to. The stakes are high when fighting for a child. Laura understands this. She approached our case with heart, intellect and meticulous organization. Our situation had many ongoing twists and turns. Many times my husband and I needed instant advice to handle urgent developments prior to trial. Laura's availability and willingness to help, often after-hours was a tremendous source of comfort. She cares about people. When our court day arrived, Laura's meticulous preparation and knowledge of child custody law was very apparent. She made sure my husband and I were prepared for court as well. I believe that my sweet grandchild will be able to grow up in the only home she has ever known because we chose the right attorney.
