MORE Than A Legal Counselor

Attorney McKnight is a “life coach” who puts you in the best position to begin your post-divorce life.

Ready To Tackle Tough Cases Tough Cases

We don’t dodge what seem like no-win situations. We hit them head-on and have earned remarkable results.


If you have made the difficult decision to end your marriage, you may have a strong support system in place or you may feel like you are alone during one of the most challenging times of your life. Either way, adding another advocate is always a smart move — one that seems even smarter if that advocate is an experienced and uniquely qualified family law attorney who has helped hundreds of others navigate the perilous and often perplexing divorce process.

Clients of Dallas lawyer Lisa McKnight quickly discover that she is much more than a tough-minded family law specialist who can protect their interests regarding child custody and visitation, child support, property division and other divorce issues. For many, Ms. McKnight becomes a trusted advisor whose service extends beyond providing legal counsel to help them establish a firm foundation for their post-divorce life.

In a career that spans more than 24 years, she has shown time and again the knack for tackling tangled and seemingly unwinnable cases. While representing numerous physicians, spouses of physicians and other wealthy professionals, she has become noted for obtaining exceptional results with complex divorces that involve extensive assets.

A Highly Regarded Family Law Attorney

Ms. McKnight is certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization as a specialist in family law. Held by less than 1 percent of all lawyers in Texas, this certification is based upon years of practice, focus in a specialty area, trial experience, professionalism, continuing legal education, evaluations by judges and fellow lawyers, and a written examination.

She handles the full spectrum of family law matters with an emphasis on:

  • Complex divorce and property division
  • Contested child custody, including international disputes
  • Post-divorce modifications, including parent relocation

We also have extensive experience representing individuals in less common (but more extreme) situations such as false allegations of sexual abuse or domestic violence, or helping a recovering alcoholic or drug abuser retain custody or visitation rights.

Through it all, our clients appreciate our honest and open approach, as well as our availability and quick responses.
