Austin Divorce Attorney – The Help you Need During a Difficult Time

Divorce can be stressful for everyone involved, but it doesn’t have to be when you have the right Austin divorce attorney by your side. Knowing you have a professional there to have your back is important. You’ll feel supported and better able to navigate the process from start to finish.

With the right attorney, divorce won’t feel as stressed or overwhelmed. You’ll feel empowered and like everything is right again with the world as you navigate your new single life.

When you use a qualified divorce lawyer in Austin, you are able to have a healthy balance between getting what is right during the divorce and ensuring all parties are protected. This is especially important if you have kids.

We know how hard court cases, depositions, and divorce settlements can be on everyone involved, but our attorneys work hard to ensure everyone is well cared for and heard during the case, getting you to a resolution as quickly as possible.

You are Our Number One Priority

It’s easy to feel like you’re lost in the shuffle when you deal with some law firms in Austin. You feel like a number and when you call, some people answering the phone don’t even know your name.

That’s not how you want to feel when you’re dealing with divorce. You want a caring ear and supportive people taking your calls, helping you get the information you need, and helping you complete your divorce case so you can move on with your life. 

At our Austin divorce law firm, that’s exactly what you get. We treat each and every client like family. Everyone that answers the phone knows who you are and how to handle your questions or concerns. You won’t spend endless time sitting on hold or wondering if you’ll get the answers you need. We are quick, efficient, and most importantly, caring.

An Austin Divorce Attorney that Listens

If you’ve ever felt like your voice was falling on deaf ears, we understand. You don’t have to worry about that when you work with our firm. We listen carefully to your questions, concerns, and even your frustrations. We know how stressful divorce can be and we want you to have a voice and a caring ear to hear it.

We are more than attorneys; we are people that care about your situation and want to help you get through it as easily as possible. We know there are certain stressors we can’t help during divorce, but what we can control we will.

With an experienced Austin divorce attorney by your side that listens and cares, you’ll know that you’re getting what you’re entitled to in the divorce case. If you have children, you’ll know that your children are protected and are getting what they need/want too.

We know that no one is exempt from the pain that divorce can cause, but we are here to help make the process as easy and as successful as possible.

We do What it Takes

At our Austin law firm, we do what it takes to get the job done. We know that no two divorce cases are identical. Each situation has its own conditions, issues, and concerns. We don’t assume there is a cookie-cutter way to handle your divorce. Instead, we talk, listen, and ask a lot of questions so we make sure everyone is on the same page.

Once we have a good handle on the situation, we decide how to proceed whether it’s an uncontested or contested divorce in Austin, TX. We have knowledge, resources, and tools to help you get the results you want out of your divorce.

Many divorces we handle are uncontested. Everyone is on the same page, and our clients just needed someone to represent them and make sure all their bases were covered. Other cases, however, are contested, difficult, and have to go to trial.

We have your back no matter where you stand. Whether your case is a walk in the park, or it has moving parts that make it feel more like walking through a jungle, we are here for you every step of the way.

An Austin Divorce Attorney that’s There for you After the Divorce

Just because your divorce is final doesn’t mean you’ll never see the inside of a courtroom again. As life changes, you may find that you need post-divorce support, and we are here to provide it.

If we’ve already worked together, we know your case and can quickly get back to work helping you solve the issue that you’re facing now. Whether you need to modify your child support order because your spouse got a much higher paying job or you lost your job; you want to move your kids to another state, or you need any other changes to your custody agreement, our divorce attorneys are there for you every step of the way.

    Clients’ Testimonials

    Many thanks to Cara Surell for her expertise and professionalism in handling my immigration case. She did a great job. The case has been resolved in my favor. I am absolutely pleased with the outcome.

    Maria P. - Immigration Law

    Having recently moved to the North Austin/Cedar Park area, I more or less rolled the dice on selecting a law firm to do some estate trust work for me. I couldn’t have chosen better! The Jackson Law Firm and lawyer Cara Surell handled my needs quickly and professionally. I truly felt that there was a genuine interest in my situation and a sincere desire to accomplish what I wanted and needed done.

    E.K. - Estate Trust

    Thank you to Cara and Lisa for making our Estate Planning process run as smoothly as possible. I’ll be recommending your firm to friends and family!

    Jill - Estate Planning

    I had a family trust put together by Cara Surell, one of the Lawyers in the Jackson Law Firm. I must say, I was very impressed and satisfied with the knowledge, speed and professionalism exhibited during this process. I am very satisfied with the results and would highly recommend this law group.

    Dale Raveney - Family Trust

    The Jackson Law firm was very supportive in my time in need in my initial divorce. He turned the tables around on the opposing council. I was denied my visitation but the Jackson Law Firm helped me get my visitation. Justin Jackson was very informative in the rules of family law and in the end he helped me get my rights to my kids. Thank you Jackson Law Firm in every thing you did for me it was much appreciated.

    F. Lyon - Divorce Law

    Justin, I want to thank you for believing in me. On the very first day you made it clear that “truth will triumph in the end” – I had serious misgivings about it since I felt those ideologies only exist in an Utopian world. During the entire process the opposing counsel tried so hard to wear us down, spewed venomous invective but you never pandered to them. You always chose the righteous path – that made me angry at times to question our stand. TRUTH TRIUMPHED!!! We won! YOU ARE A GREAT CHESS PLAYER MY FRIEND – You had them completely fooled with your boyish charm, fledged approach…underneath that camouflage there is a highly astute & insightful mind – they failed to see it. You are a good man with strong character & ethics. I salute you!

    Aaron - Truth will triumph
