I am Leigh Ann Schenk. I am a licensed attorney and mediator in the state of Texas. I was raised on a working horse and cattle ranch and believe in the principles of hard work and strong family ethics. I come from a family of lawyers and work primarily in Fort Worth and Dallas area. I know that there are many Family law attorneys to choose from but if you want a lawyer that will represent you with honesty, candor, and fairness, I am your lawyer. .I am dedicated to my profession and my duty as a public servant. My job is to employ all appropriate means to protect and advance your legitimate rights, claims, and objectives.
I have an extensive background in dealing with children and I have appeared in court as a child abuse expert when working as a forensic interviewer for both defense attorneys and prosecutors. I was one of three investigators for the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services that was involved in the creation of the Fort Worth Alliance For Children. I pride myself in putting children’s interests and needs first because I know that the Court will act similarly.
My spare time is dedicated to charity work for the Fort Worth Margarita Society dba Children’s Charities of Fort Worth, where I have held the position of Vice President for the past three years and Executive Director and Director for the last 18 years. I believe when children are involved in a Family lawsuit, the less involvement of the child, the better. It is always best to maintain as much stability for the child as possible. A divorce can be traumatic for the children as well as the parents, which is why I try to relieve as much of this stress from the situation as I can.
I am a member of the State Bar of Texas, the Tarrant County Bar Association, the Tarrant County Family Bar Association, The Pro Bono College of the State Bar of Texas and The College of the State Bar of Texas.
When life sends you challenges through legal issues, hit them head on with a professional and dedicated attorney. Whether it is an ugly divorce, a modification of custody or child support, or any other Family Law issue, I am only a phone call away.
My goal is to protect your property, your family, your integrity, your sanity and your rights. Do not be a victim of the system, nor your spouse. Call me today! (before your spouse does)
