Plano Contested Divorce Attorney

Dallas-Ft. Worth divorce lawyer Laurence DePlaza has 20 years of experience resolving highly charged and complex issues in Texas divorce cases.

Expert testimony can be extremely useful in developing and presenting your case on questions ranging from the division of family business assets to demonstrating your fitness as a parent despite past problems with drug or alcohol abuse. To learn how our ability to work with experts in divorce litigation can benefit you, please contact our office in Plano.

We use divorce experts for two main purposes: first, to support your position on contested fact issues; and second, to make sure that any problems you or your children may be experiencing before, during or after the divorce are fully addressed and resolved. In other words, we use divorce experts to strengthen your position in negotiations or in court and to get you and your children the help you may need.

Many divorces demonstrate that one or both spouses have serious problems with immaturity, alcoholism, financial irresponsibility, sexual judgment, anger management, or other difficulties that can strain a marriage and cause behavioral or developmental problems for the children. We are very interested in helping our clients confront and resolve these problems. Proof of proactive attention and professional help with weaknesses as a spouse or parent will usually improve your position before a family court judge on a child custody or visitation issue. More importantly, our support and resources to promote your progress on personal problems can help you and your children for the rest of your lives.

Texas Super Lawyer Laurence DePlaza has shared his insights into the use of experts in divorce and family law litigation at the annual Trial Institute of the Texas Academy of Family Law Specialists in San Antonio and Las Vegas. Whether your case involves a complex property valuation issue or a child custody dispute concerning a parent with a substance abuse problem, our experience and access to divorce experts can help make a decisive difference in your case.
