Practicing law has been a family affair for Mr. Jones, one of six attorneys in the family, the Dallas native has been immersed in the practice of family law his entire life. When his own parents divorced, Mr. Jones learned first-hand how the event of divorce can disrupt the lives of spouses and children alike; as a result, he understands the importance of keeping clients focused on the issues that really matter. His approach always seeks to find a strategic balance aimed at meeting his clients’ immediate short-term goals without sacrificing the important long-term objectives that often get overlooked by clients and attorneys alike. Mr. Jones is familiar with the uncertainty that looms overhead in many family law cases, and always seeks to ensure his clients know where they stand, what they can expect, and how they can reach the finish line. A skilled communicator with a steady demeanor and an ability to cut through the noise, his skill set and personal background are both tailor-made for the practice of family law.
Mr. Jones’ formal experience with family law began back as a law student at one of the nation’s top-fifteen law schools – the University Of Texas School of Law – where he spent countless hours studying under the instruction of renowned family law Professor Jack Sampson – a titan in the field of Texas family law whose involvement in the drafting of the Texas Family Code has spanned nearly 40 years. A skilled legal writer, Mr. Jones work was published in a leading Texas family law publication before he had yet graduated from law school. In addition to his success in the study of family law, Mr. Jones also excelled beyond the classroom, where, among a number of other roles, he served as chairman of one of the law school’s most prominent political organizations.
Before joining KoonsFuller in their Dallas office, Mr. Jones first served as a judicial clerk for the Honorable Craig Smith in the 192nd Judicial District Court, Dallas, where he gained invaluable civil litigation experience and essential familiarity with the courtroom.
