Family Law

The Brophy Law Firm has been competently, compassionately, and cost-effectively handling divorces, child custody matters, Enforcement actions, and Modification suits for more than 20 years.  Our approach?  "Let's work this out."  Family Law matters are emotionally and financially draining enough without having to worry about wasting your marital Estate to pay for your lawyers.  Still, too many Family Law practitioners in Harris and Fort Bend Counties encourage spouses to fight, fight, fight, instead of encouraging divorcing parents (for example) to remember that they will need to act as parenting partners in the future.  We want to help you find a bridge to a new relationship or a new and financially secure future, and not an all out war of attrition.
