One of the elite 1% of attorneys board certified in both Family Law and Civil Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, Carmen’s experience and expertise provide her with insight into each client’s individual needs and goals. Her decades of experience have taken her beyond just a technical knowledge of the law but attuned her to the nuances that can be game changers in a case. Her analytical and persuasive skills in family law matters are valuable resources for obtaining desirable outcomes for her clients, whether in the courtroom, mediation, or collaborative setting.
A Baylor Law graduate, she has also distinguished herself by being named a Fellow of the prestigious American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML). Carmen is also trained in Collaborative Family Law, a voluntary process under the Texas Family Code, which allows participants to resolve their family law matters by agreement outside of litigation.
If your family law matter involves corporate, oil and gas, intellectual property or other issues, Carmen’s clients have the benefit of Carrington Coleman’s proficiency in all of these areas. This added value allows Carmen to develop a trustworthy, proactive analysis of issues from day one, avoiding the delay of putting together a team to address them after the fact. With Carmen, you will not only hit the ground running, but also have the assurance that there is a team representing you with expertise, a history of working together, and a foundation of shared goals and core values in your representation.
A frequent author and speaker on family law topics on various media platforms, Carmen also authors her own Texas family law blog Home Court, and posts on current family law topics at www.facebook.com/carmeneikerfamilylaw.
