Welcome to DACFL
We are a collaboratively trained group of lawyers in Dallas and Collin Counties who bring decades of education, experience, and expertise to resolve family disputes privately with respect and dignity and without litigation. Our group is the first Collaborative Law practice group formed in Texas and is the only practice group with every member being board certified in family law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. In addition, each member has received training in interest-based negotiation and how it can be used in the reconfiguration of family relationships. Our members are committed to using the Collaborative Law model in order to meet the needs of our clients. The Dallas Alliance of Collaborative Family Lawyers invites you to explore our website to learn about a better way to resolve your divorce or other family law issue. Many people such as you are discovering that the court system is not the least painful or most private way to resolve issues involving their families. Collaborative Law may provide for you, as it has for hundreds of others before you, a more constructive and positive alternative. In Collaborative Law, issues are handled privately in a manner that is respectful and places the needs of the clients and their children foremost.
Collaborative Law puts decision-making back in the hands of the clients. DACFL members have the opportunity to serve as effective settlement advocates for their clients. One of the first decisions that the clients are allowed to control is whether they want to employ other collaboratively trained professionals, like a financial professional and/or communication consultant to help facilitate the transition for the family. By using Collaborative Law, our members help the clients learn how to communicate with each other in a manner that will foster civility. We invite you to explore this website further to learn about this Collaborative Law process that is truly revolutionary for the resolution of family disputes.
