Southlake Board Certified

Michael Tresidder understands the importance of each client’s case. From the simplest to the most complex, their cases influence the manner in which clients will live their lives on a daily basis for years to come.

“I know that I am representing people at their most vulnerable, when they are unsure of their circumstances,” says the Southlake office attorney. “It is very rewarding for me to put them at ease.”

Michael Tresidder on Standard Visitation: 

Mr. Tresidder graduated cum laude from Texas Tech University School of Law in 2002. In law school, he was a member of the Texas Tech Board of Barristers and participated on the school’s national mock trial team. Before that, he earned a bachelor of arts in political science, graduating cum laude from the University of Texas at Arlington.

He is a Tarrant Country based attorney, having handled family law cases for a small civil trial law firm and then for his own solo practice, in the city of Fort Worth, before joining KoonsFuller.

Following extensive discovery, he settled the divorce without a trial. He’s represented numerous clients whose marital estates included business interests and whose spouses have resisted fully disclosing the nature and existence of assets.

In another case, he represented a disabled woman, winning temporary spousal maintenance as well as statutory post-divorce maintenance and contractual post-divorce maintenance.

In 2009 and 2013, he was listed as a Top Attorney in the November issue of Fort Worth, Texas Magazine. Mr. Tresidder is president of the of the HALO Society, which helps enrich the lives of abused and neglected children in Tarrant County.
