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.

San Antonio Board Certified Attorneys

Board Certification is an achievement that distinguishes attorneys who have taken the time and committed to the process of becoming a publicly recognized specialist in their area of law. The Texas Board of Legal Specialization that grants board certification is a part of the State Bar of Texas, the body the licenses lawyers to practice law in the state of Texas. The Board reviews applicants for certification, recognizes the attorneys that meet the high standards required to become certified, and regulates the certified attorneys becoming specialized in the field of law.

According to the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, while there are over 100,000 attorneys licensed to practice law in Texas, there are only 7,400 who have earned the status of being board certified specialists in their practice area. At the Higdon, Hardy & Zuflacht, L.L.P., all of our partners have earned the prestigious right to be publically recognized as specialists in family law. Additionally, partner James A. Higdon has also earned this status in the area of civil appellate law. We are dedicated to providing our clients the best legal guidance possible, and that is shown through the commitment of earning board certification.

Becoming a Board Certified Attorney

The process of becoming board certified is time-consuming and requires the attorneys to meet high standards put in place by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. To become certified in a specialty area, attorneys must have:

  • Been licensed to practice law for at least five years
  • Devoted a required percentage of practice to a specialty area each year, for at least three years – 35% for family law, 25% for civil appellate law
  • Handled a wide variety of matters in the area to demonstrate experience and skill
  • Kept legal training up to date by regularly attending educational seminars or classes
  • Been peer reviewed by fellow attorneys and judges

Attorneys must first initiate the certification process by submitting the above information in an application to the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. If the Board determines that the attorney meets the minimum requirements, they then have to take and pass a six-hour written examination to become board certified.
