This is the first post of a serialization of Janet P. Brumley's book, Divorce Without Disaster. This post tells you about Janet.
Janet P. Brumley has more than 30 years’ experience as a divorce lawyer. During that time, she gained a reputation as a fierce advocate on behalf of her clients in the domestic relations courts of Texas. Janet is Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and is a member of the College of the State Bar of Texas.
In 2003, Texas Monthly and Law & Politics magazines began selecting Texas Super Lawyers through a poll of other lawyers. Janet's fellow lawyers selected her as a Super Lawyer in 2003 and have selected her every year since. In addition, D Magazine selected Janet as one of the Best Lawyers in Dallas beginning in 2009.
In 2000, Janet began exploring a more civil way to obtain the best possible result for those who retain her: Collaborative law. Janet is a certified mediator and a member of both the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals and the Collaborative Law Institute of Texas. She is also a founding member of the Dallas Alliance of Collaborative Family Lawyers, a group of attorneys from different law firms whose common thread is their dedication to the sane and sensible features of collaborative law divorce.
Janet earned her law degree from the University of Memphis School of Law. She has served on the grievance committee of the State Bar of Texas and she has often taught continuing legal education seminars for the State Bar of Texas, including presenting at the Advanced Family Law Course, the largest gathering of family lawyers in the nation.
The next post will be the introduction to Janet's book.
