Darcy Loveless is a graduate of the Baylor School of Law and a fourth-generation lawyer. She practices with her father, and has worked in the office for over 25 years, starting as a file clerk and eventually becoming the managing partner. Her in-depth exposure to all facets of family law from the ground up has provided the foundation for her belief in the collaborative process as traditional family law has become progressively more emotionally distressing, legally complex, and overwhelmingly expensive for the average family law client. While choosing the collaborative law process does not change the complexity of a case, it can streamline the handling of some issues, which can make the case less expensive. There is a difference in the aspects of control a client has in the collaborative process versus the litigated process, and the elements of control available in a collaborative case can also eliminate some of the emotional stress associated with a litigated divorce, where scheduling is largely in the hands of the Court. This process also focuses on communication, and gives families real tools they can continue to use after their case ends. Darcy enjoys using her training to help clients in any capacity, but feels that the collaborative process has the best chance to help families effectuate real change in their lives as they restructure. was one of the co-authors of the D.C.C.P book “Collaborative Law and Other Options for Dispute Resolution”. She is board certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and is a member of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.
