Carol Wilson has been Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization for 30 years, and has decades of experience skillfully litigating and trying complex divorce, property division, and child custody cases.
Carol believes that quality legal representation means using the Golden Rule with clients: treat your clients as you would want to be treated. She advocates tirelessly for her client’s and the children’s best interests and strives to minimize the disruptions that can occur in inherently emotionally charged situations.
Carol believes in responding to her clients:
Carol knows that moving the case forward toward a thorough resolution is usually best for her clients. Virtually all cases in North Texas will go to Mediation before a final trial is necessary, and Carol has learned to use Mediation to achieve positive outcomes for her clients.
Mediation is more productive as it allows the parties to choose the outcome they are willing to live with as opposed to a judge-imposed decision, and is usually less time, money and emotionally costly. However, if mediation does not work, Carol is a highly skilled trial lawyer and has been recognized by her peers for her expertise and ability to deliver results. She believes that part of her job is to educate clients regarding the law and what it rightfully provides with their facts, as well as to help them avoid the problems common in emotionally stressful circumstances.
Carol’s vast network includes forensic certified public accountants, specialists in other legal fields such as oil & gas, real estate, tax and appellate. These experts can be called upon to bring a case to successful conclusion when Carol’s clients’ facts involve a distinct area of the law. Carol knows that the legal system cannot solve all of her client’s problems and takes care to advise them of the likelihood of achieving their goals based on their evidence and the relevant law. She connects them with experts that can assist them in finding solutions to non-legal issues they may have.
