Debbie Crafton

Senior Associate Attorney

“Families today face a myriad of challenges, and I am passionate about counseling and partnering with my clients so that they are equipped to meet those challenges when circumstances change, whether through divorce or custody disputes.


For much of my career I practiced in a general civil litigation firm where I represented businesses and individuals with a wide range of legal issues in addition to my family law clients.  This experience allows me to be creative and work with my clients to explore various options to best meet the needs of their family.


Family is everything to me. I have two wonderful children, Michael and Megan, and a son-in-law Andrew. I was married for 26 years to my amazing late husband, Dean. I have first-hand experience with major life changes and can empathize with my clients while helping them navigate the unexpected changes in their lives. When I’m not working, I relax with my children, my wonderful friends, and my loud and crazy extended family, and I spend a lot of time with my church family at Coppell Bible Fellowship.”

Ms. Crafton received her undergraduate degree from Texas A&M University and is a 2005 graduate of Texas Wesleyan University School of Law, which is now known as Texas A&M University School of Law.  While in law school, Crafton was selected as a National Member of the Order of the Barristers.
