Coronavirus, Divorce and Family Law:

We are open!

Higdon Hardy & Zuflacht is taking a safe but proactive approach to the Coronavirus situation in our law practice. We are working every day to represent our family law clients. At the same time, we are following best practices to protect the health of our employees and our clients. To read more please Click Here

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.

It is with great sadness that Higdon, Higdon, Hardy & Zuflacht, L.L.P. say farewell to our dear friend and law partner James N. “Jim” Higdon, who passed away Sunday, March 4, 2018, at the age of 73.

Born October 20, 1944, in McAlester, Oklahoma, Mr. Higdon was widely recognized in the Texas legal community as one of San Antonio’s pre-imminent family lawyers. Mr. Higdon received his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Texas at Austin in 1967. He earned his Master of Business Administration at the University of West Florida in Pensacola in 1973. After serving a total of six years as an active duty pilot in the Navy, he attended St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio, Texas, to receive his Doctor of Jurisprudence in 1975. He then served 18 years in the Naval Reserves, retiring with the rank of Captain. Sought out by many, Mr. Higdon was recognized as an expert for military related family law matters nationwide. He practiced law for over 43 years, 21 of those years at Higdon, Hardy & Zuflacht.

A “serial” volunteer, he was a member of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, the Texas Academy of Family Law Specialists, the San Antonio Bar Association, Alamo Masonic Lodge (Past Master and Treasurer, 1976 – 2018), National Sojourners, Inc. (1984 – 2018 and National President), Association of United States Navy (1977 – 2018), San Antonio Oak Hills Rotary (1989 – 2018 and Past President), San Antonio Family Lawyers Association (1986 –2018 and Past President), and Alamo Masonic Cemetery Corporation (1986 – 2018 and past President). He was also a Deacon at Woodland Baptist Church and sang in the choir.

He was the beloved husband of 49 years to Barbara Downing Higdon, loving father and father-in-law to sons Travis N. Higdon (and wife Janet) and C. Andrew Higdon (and wife Jake), and grandfather to Byrd, Park, Hadden, and Riley. Jim was a man of many talents and provided his family, friends, co-workers, and clients a sense of comfortability, understanding, and trustworthiness.

Jim Higdon will be long remembered by our firm, the legal community, the many volunteer organizations he participated in, and the many clients he helped over the years.
