Houston Family Attorney

The highly skilled legal team at Nichols Law is concerned with every legal issue that involves families. This means we must go beyond helping people with child support and adoption. We must also work to help families that have suffered a terrible injustice. This work involves thinking and planning regarding claims outside conventional family law — something our family law legal team does every day in Texas.

While many of the above are also criminal offenses, we do not provide criminal defense. Criminal prosecution is handled by the government — we represent clients in civil litigation, where one party sues the other over an injustice. Our experienced Houston attorney works hard to get our clients compensated for the expenses and pain that tortious action put them through.

In its years of building a reputation as a leading family law firm, Nichols Law has never wavered from a strong commitment to public service. If you need help with any of the above issues, but cannot pay our fees, we can refer you to legal aid services. We want to ensure that justice is done not only for the financially solvent, but also for the needy.
