After practicing for almost a decade at well-respected Dallas law firms, Andrew J. Anderson decided to form Anderson Legal Group, P.C. The focus of the new firm was to assist clients in family law related matters (such as divorce, custody, adoptions, premarital agreements, wills and child support issues) and/or criminal defense matters. These particular cases are extremely stressful for the client and often plague clients until they are resolved. Mr. Anderson explains all options available to the clients, which empowers them to make good decisions during these difficult times.
Mr. Anderson supplemented his legal education with an extensive hearing and trial practice. Specifically, he has tried numerous cases before the Judges of Tarrant, Dallas, Denton, and Collin county courts. Further, Mr. Anderson often writes and presents seminars to teach other attorneys through the Texas Bar Association’s Continuing Legal Education programs. Mr. Anderson is also Board Certified in Family Law which is the highest award for specialized competence issued by the State Bar of Texas and has been recognized as a Super Lawyer since 2011.
Mr. Anderson represents clients by listening to their goals, and then creating a specifically tailored plan for achieving their goals as quickly as possible. He firmly believes that clients must be thoroughly informed, and then he strives to develop and present all possible options. When an attorney offers all possible options, along with the potential outcomes, it allows the client to make informed decisions about their case. Due to Mr. Anderson’s extensive courtroom experience, clients are confident that if their case cannot be resolved before trial, that Mr. Anderson will work to receive all possible relief from the Judge.
The majority of Mr. Anderson’s caseload involves complex divorce matters with substantial assets. Typically, these cases deal with businesses, Family Limited Partnerships, Sports Contracts, or complex benefits for officers of large corporations. Mr. Anderson structures the property transactions to obtain the best possible results for his clients. Often these complex divorce matters also have emotionally charged custody litigation. Mr. Anderson is able to objectively craft a plan to obtain as much time with the children as the client desires.
Mr. Anderson also represents clients in criminal matters. While typically these cases stem from divorce and family law litigation, this is not always the case. Specifically, Mr. Anderson deals with Federal and State authorities mainly dealing with charges regarding: drug possession, pornography, abduction, alcohol, sex offenses, assault and weapons charges.
Mr. Anderson is respected by Texas attorneys and judges. To evidence this, Mr. Anderson has received the highest peer review rating as established by Martindale-Hubble (for both ethics and legal competence). Further, Mr. Anderson is a member of the College of the State Bar of Texas which is a prestigious group of lawyers that pride themselves in exceeding the minimum requirements for continuing legal education.
