Liz Porter

Shareholder | Board Certified


Dallas divorce attorney, Liz Porter, is board certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. She is a shareholder at KoonsFuller, P.C., which is one of the Southwest’s largest law firms handling exclusively family law cases. Liz is a member of the family law sections of the American Bar Association, State Bar of Texas and the Dallas Bar Association. She is also a member of the Texas Academy of Family Law Specialists and Dallas Young Lawyers Association and has been elected to the Annette Stewart American Inn of Court. In addition to litigation, Liz also is trained and practices Collaborative Law and is a member of the Collaborative Law Institute of Texas.

Liz has earned selection to the list of Texas Super Lawyers and earned recognition as a Texas Rising Star from 2008-2011. She was also named a “Best Lawyer” by D Magazine in 2019 and 2020 and has written articles and spoken to various organizations relating to current family law issues.

“She isn’t just a Dallas divorce attorney, I always introduce Liz as our child custody expert,” says Ike Vanden Eykel, CEO and managing partner of KoonsFuller, P.C. “She is a powerhouse when it comes to a wide range of family law matters, but her success when it comes to resolving parent-child issues, both in and out of the courtroom, is where she makes her mark.” Liz is known and respected across the state for her expertise in managing high-conflict custody disputes dealing with significant issues; family violence, child support enforcement actions, modifications of previous orders, grandparent rights, termination and paternity issues.

In addition to custody issues, Liz’s family law expertise includes divorce litigation, both contested and non-contested divorces, high-net-worth client representation, complex property divisions, asset tracing, pre and post-marital agreements, and collaborative law. Liz handles all types and sizes of divorce cases and is a strong advocate for mediation. However, she has a great deal of experience in the courtroom when settlement is no longer an option. “It is my commitment to every client I represent to provide them with the highest quality, and personalized legal representation through sincere compassion for their individual circumstance, yet passionately advocate for their goals. I realize the decisions a client makes today can and will have a long and lasting effect not only on their future but also their family. That is why it is so important to have the best lawyer and team with you throughout the divorce process.”
