All our employees understand that they should not be working if they are sick, and in particular, that they should not be at our office while sick.

To further protect our employees and our clients we are encouraging meetings by phone, Zoom, Skype or similar means. We have represented clients from out of state and out of the country in this manner for many years. Our clients often prefer this to traveling to our office.

We are also working with the divorce and civil courts, as well as opposing counsel, to arrange court appearances, settlement conferences, and other litigation events remotely whenever possible.

To further protect the health of all concerned, all our attorneys and staff have the technology and capability to work on cases and with clients from home as well as at the office. Your phone calls will be returned. Your emails will be answered. Your case deadlines will be met.

The days ahead may be a challenge. We do not yet know the extent to which particular courts will curtail trials or even the extent to which HHZ will have clients and other guests come to our office. We will continue to work to take care of our clients’ cases and to take on new matters and clients. We will simply manage your case in less traditional, more technology-driven ways, that are safer for your health and ours.

Thank you for your trust.

Trust Our Experience. Family Law is what we do.

All of the partners at our firm are Board Certified in Family Law - less than 1% of Texas lawyers achieve this distinction.

Rocker claims he was never married in divorce

As most people in Texas are aware, marriage is hard, but celebrity marriages can often be especially challenging. In addition to the regular strains placed on a marriage, celebrities often feel additional stress due to the media spotlight and hectic schedules. As a result, some couples decide that it is in their best interest to seek a divorce.

Such may be the case for guitarist Slash and his estranged wife Perla Ferrar after the couple announced their intention to end their marriage. However, Slash has recently complicated proceedings by claiming that he and Ferrar were never legally married. According to court papers, Ferrar was briefly married to a different man in 1993. She filed for divorce soon after the marriage, but discovered some time later that certain papers were not filed and a final judgment had not been issued.

Ferrar claims that the issue was resolved several years ago when a judge ordered that her divorce was valid from 1994, when papers were initially filed. However, Slash apparently disputes this assertion. He argues that they were never legally married, and as a result, she does not deserve any of the millions of dollars he has reportedly earned throughout his career. The couple has previously filed for divorce only to reconcile, and they share two children together.

Regardless of the degree of celebrity a couple experiences, people are often left facing the decision of whether to end their marriage. In many cases, the decision to seek a divorce is in the best interest of all involved. Although allegations regarding whether a couple was legally married can complicate matters, all those seeking a divorce in Texas can likely benefit from the guidance of an attorney with experience with family law.
