Few of us think about divorce on our wedding day. As we repeat those fateful words “for better or worse” we never imagine that “worse” will happen to us. Yet, no matter how hard you try things can fall apart. When it does, you need an experienced family-law attorney ready to help you navigate this difficult journey with as little collateral damage as possible.

For hundreds of your Tarrant County neighbors, that attorney is Donna Smiedt. If fact, they named her “Top Family Law Attorney”. Whether you need qualified legal counsel on inheritance, divorce, child custody, family member rights, or any other area of family law, Donna and her team give the same attention to detail to the smallest, uncontested divorce or will as they do a multimillion- dollar, complex estate division. And few attorneys in this area possess the litigation experience and family law expertise she does.

“I have almost 40 years ‘experience representing families going through all types of divorces—many of which include tracing complex separate property estates,” Donna said. “These cases require the knowledge and expertise of a board-certified litigation lawyer experienced in their field.”

Many of Donna’s clients are facing family law issues for the first time. “The ‘win’ doesn’t mean much, if the family is fractured and the children destroyed by the wars fought in family court,” Donna said. “By strategizing and guiding my client through the family law system I can maximize a favorable outcome—not only for the client I represent, but the entire family unit.” Donna brings to the table her decades of trial experience litigating and winning and managing high conflict custody cases, achieving the best outcome for her clients, their children, and the entire family unit.

Donna graduated high school at age 15, a year after moving to the United States from South Africa. By age 19, she’d earned her undergraduate degree from Southern Methodist University in Dallas and became one of Southern Methodist University School of Law’s youngest graduates in history, finishing her law degree at 22.

Donna credits her passion for helping clients move through troubled times to the fact that she fully believes in the importance of the work she does. She takes pride in offering her clients a safe and understanding system of support as well as effective legal solutions.

It’s no wonder Donna has been named Family Law Attorney of the Year in Arlington and was voted Top Family Law Attorney in Fort Worth by her peers. “Our family law center exists to provide families with a variety of options, at one of the most difficult times of their lives, when emotions run high,” Donna said. “We are the calm voice of advice, tempered with empathy for their situation, guiding them from the dark to the light in their divorce or custody experience.”
