Legal Representation For Contested And Uncontested Divorce

Anger, frustration or a desire for retribution sometimes stand in the way of a sensible, cost-effective resolution in a divorce case. Attorney Kathryn Lanigan Pruitt applies a mix of knowledge, tenacity and compassion to assist her clients in overcoming these obstacles to reach a successful resolution. Kathryn offers her clients sound guidance in navigating the turbulence of the divorce process and urges them to keep their end goals in mind and to promote those goals through every interaction and decision in the case.

As one former opposing counsel states, “Kathryn possesses the unique skills of a zealous advocate both inside and outside of the courtroom. She is a pleasure to work alongside and across from in a case.”

Representing clients in family courts throughout Denton, Collin and Dallas counties, Kathryn uses her comprehensive knowledge of Texas family law to put her clients in the best possible position to begin their post-divorce life. She emphasizes clear communication throughout so that clients have a full understanding of the law as it applies to child custody and support, property characterization, property division, spousal maintenance, business interests and other issues.

A Staunch Advocate Who Will Protect Your Rights

Kathryn has practiced law for more than 27 years and has focused on family law since 2004. She believes that author Stephen Covey got it right when he said, “Begin with the end in mind.” Kathryn applies her knowledge and experience to help her clients evaluate their property and family situation and determine what a successful end to their case might look like. Then, she works with them to develop a step-by-step legal roadmap to maximize the potential of reaching their goals.

Some cases will have a more complex plan than others, but whether simple or complex, Kathryn has the skill and experience to guide her clients along the way. She is adept at navigating the intricacies of the characterization and division of complex marital property, as well as advising a parent on how to co-parent the children through the transition to separate households.

Kathryn is committed to taking a very hands-on approach to her clients’ cases from start to finish. She works directly with her clients to set realistic goals and develop a plan to move their case forward. Her in-depth knowledge of her clients’ individual situations and the applicable laws assists her in representing their interests and maximizing their results. She feels that her personalized approach makes it easier for her clients to discuss goals, ask questions and reach out for support.
