Paul G. Daly
Board Certified Divorce Attorney
Paul G. Daly has a strong desire to help people resolve their legal issues. Since joining Anderson Legal Group, P.C., in August of 2012, Mr. Daly has resolved a variety of family law (including adoptions, divorces, custody disputes, and child support modifications) and criminal law cases for his clients.
Education and Goals
In addition to his Law Degree, Mr. Daly also holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Anthropology, or the study of the physical, cultural and societal developments of people. As such, Mr. Daly has a deep understanding of a wide range of cultural backgrounds and ideologies. This allows Mr. Daly to be without prejudice or bias in the presentation and development of options for clients. Mr. Daly is also committed to enhancing and continuing his legal education. This is evidenced by his acceptance into an honor society of attorneys (College of the State Bar of Texas) which is dedicated to continued legal education and the use of only the highest ethical standards.
A key tenet to Mr. Daly’s representation is his listening to his clients’ concerns and stressors. Mr. Daly strives to maintain excellent communication with his clients so that they know they are not just a case number. This is done by ensuring that his clients understand all of their options so that they can make informed decisions.
Mr. Daly cares deeply for children’s issues. He is a staunch advocate to their positive and healthy development–even during a crisis such as a divorce. To illustrate his commitment, Mr. Daly has been a “big brother” in the Big Brothers/Big Sisters Mentoring Program to the same child for over 10 years. Mr. Daly brings this same level of commitment and passion to his practice when representing the interests of the client’s children. Simply put, he does not give up on children.
Professionally, Mr. Daly has an excellent working relationship with many of the family law attorneys in the DFW Metroplex. Because of these relationships, he is often able to convince opposing attorneys of his client’s position such that the matter can be resolved without going to Trial. This saves the client the emotional toll that comes with testifying and a prolonged case.
However, when agreements are not an option, and litigation is necessary, Mr. Daly uses his substantial Court experience to meet his clients’ objectives. Specifically, his practice allows him to be in Court almost every day the Court is open. As such, he is often before the area Judges. Further, Mr. Daly is one of a limited number of attorneys in the DFW Metroplex that has completed multiple Jury Trials. Jury Trials are regarded as the most complex form of family law litigation–of which there are usually only 50 in the entire State of Texas each year! Mr. Daly’s unwavering compassion along with his litigation experience allows him to get the maximum results for his client.
In addition to family law, Mr. Daly has also represented clients in a variety of criminal matters, including drug charges, DWI defense, expunctions, and orders of non-disclosure. Mr. Daly understands that a criminal charge is one of the most stressful experiences that clients will face. He works hard to achieve the best possible outcome for his clients and has successfully removed several arrests from his clients’ permanent records through the expunction process. This allows clients to move on with their life and to secure employment or attend college.
Mr. Daly supplements his legal advocacy work by offering Mediation services. Mr. Daly has completed over 70 hours of Mediation training (which had an emphasis on Texas family law matters). Mediation allows the parties, and their attorneys, to craft creative solutions to resolve their family law matters outside of Court. Mr. Daly enjoys this process because it saves the parties from the stress and expense associated with Trial. Please contact our office to schedule a Mediation with Mr. Daly.
Mr. Daly often is often recognized by the legal community for his abilities. He is Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, which is the highest level of recognition a Texas attorney can achieve for specialized expertise in a specific area of law. He was designated as a Rising Star in Family Law by Super Lawyers Magazine in 2019, an honor that is bestowed on only 2.5% of Texas attorneys under the age of 40. Mr. Daly has also been chosen by his peers as a Top Attorney in Family Law in Fort Worth, Texas Magazine and 360 West Magazine.
