Jessica Temple

Managing Attorney

"I like practicing Family Law because we get to fight for and protect the most important things in our clients’ lives. Family Law is more than who-gets-what or who-gets-the-kids, we strive to protect our client’s short term and long term interests.


The saying 'I wasn't born in Texas but I got here as fast I could' is true for me.  Although I was not born in Texas, I grew up around Fort Worth and have lived in Texas most of my life. I have a great fondness for Texas.   I love the Rangers (Let’s Go Rangers! Let’s Go!), the Cowboys (it IS America’s team after all), Texas summers and Tex-Mex!  While I have deep affection for Texas, the best thing about my life is being an Aunt. I have two beautiful nieces and four handsome nephews. I cherish spending time with them and teaching them all the cool stuff only Aunts get to teach."
