Serving Your Family’s Varying Legal Needs
Finding resolution to legal issues surrounding the family is often extremely difficult. This does not mean it is painful. We have two veteran family law attorneys on staff who can provide skilled guidance in this time of need. We strive to address all your family’s needs by providing effective legal counsel that allows everyone to move toward a better future, whether you work with founding partner Barbara Schwarz Young, who is a board-certified lawyer in family law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, or founding partner Lynn Libersky.
We understand that each family law situation is unique. Nonetheless, we try to work with the other party to negotiate a fair and equitable solution even if it is contested custody. Alternatives to court include the more collaborative approaches of mediation before a neutral third-party attorney or negotiating with the opposing attorney. Either way, we prepare as if we are going to court and will tenaciously fight for your rights and legal goals. If we do end up before a judge in Killeen or Temple, we have 35 years of combined legal experience in court and will explore every avenue to find a positive outcome.
