“My commitment to each individual that hires me is very simple: professionalism and excellence. I believe that professionalism encompasses ethics, courtesy, knowledge, skill and integrity. Excellence is what sets a professional apart from his or her peers. My commitment to excellence is what motivates me. Every client has unique personal and legal issues and goals for the outcome of their case. The legal issues facing our clients are as varied as the clients themselves. Some clients are going through divorce, custody issues and child support modifications, while others are completing private adoptions, or preparing pre-nuptial agreements. Whether a client is seeking an agreed divorce, or facing contested litigation, it is our experience, attention to detail and thorough knowledge of Texas family law that serves our clients well, but it is that commitment to excellence that makes the difference in outcome.” If you would like to contact Polly O’Toole to set up an initial consultation, simply telephone her at 214-346-9550, or send her an e-mail at potoole@otoolefamilylaw.com
