Family law is unique in that it provides the opportunity to practice complex civil litigation while also representing real people who are in need of legal help. That combination is what attracted Fort Worth divorce attorney Michael B. Mathis to the field.
While family law matters are often very complicated, Mr. Mathis remains focused on the most important tasks at hand.
“I like to reduce every problem to its simplest form,” Mr. Mathis said. “Family law is emotional and chaotic at times. It is important to be able to see through everything else and identify the big issues which need to be resolved.”
It is impossible to remove emotion from family law cases, but by communicating clearly and openly with his clients, Mr. Mathis is able to get a clear picture of what it is they want to accomplish and the best way to achieve those goals.
“Even though family law cases are deeply personal, I always want to make sure my client understands that it’s still a lawsuit, plain and simple,” Mr. Mathis said. “Once I know what my client’s goals are, I can explain to him how we can use the legal system to try to achieve those goals.”
