Founded in 2001, the Texas Family Law Foundation's mission is to improve the family law practice and jurisprudence of the state of Texas.

Foundation Committees
 
Join our team! The Texas Family Law Foundation is run by volunteers who support our mission and want to get involved. From our Board members to our committees, our grassroots efforts are helping to build an organization that provides a voice in the Texas Legislature for family lawyers and their clients, as well as resources and services to enhance the practice of family law in Texas. We are working hard to shape family law practice and jurisprudence in the Lone Star State. If you are a Foundation member who is interested in serving on a committee, please contact Alison Unger.
