Dallas Family Lawyer Robert A. Emerson Joins VernerBrumleyMcCurley

By on June 16, 2015 in Announcements, Family Law

Robert A. EmersonDallas family law firm VernerBrumleyMcCurley PC, devoted solely to divorce law, announces that Robert A. Emerson has joined the firm as an associate.

Emerson has extensive experience in negotiated and mediated settlement agreements, child custody contests and the division of complex marital estates, the firm said in a release. A native of Amarillo, Texas, he has deep roots in family law. His mother, Sally Emerson, is a prominent Amarillo family lawyer and his father, Don Emerson, is the longtime judge of Amarillo’s 320th District Court, which handles family law matters.

Despite growing up steeped in family law, Emerson had planned to pursue environmental law until he interned at the Resource and Crisis Center of Galveston County, a domestic violence shelter.

“I realized that helping those who can’t help themselves is both important and rewarding work,” he says. “When someone decides to get divorced – or their spouse makes the decision for them – they’re in a difficult place and they need the help of someone who is committed to solving their problems. Now I know why my parents made this their life’s work.”

Jim Mueller, the firm’s managing partner, says Emerson is an ideal addition to VernerBrumleyMcCurley.

“We have been quite happy to learn that the apple did not fall far from the tree,” he says. “Bob is a bright and promising lawyer, and we are thrilled he is bringing his talents to our firm.”

Mr. Emerson earned his law degree, with pro bono honors, from South Texas College of Law in 2013. He earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Texas at Austin in 2006. He is a member of the Dallas Bar Association, the Collin County Bar Association and the State Bar of Texas Family Law Section. 

VernerBrumleyMcCurley provides concierge-style representation to its divorce clients. “They are available day or night to handle not only legal problems, but also other personal challenges often associated with divorce,” the release says. “With a reputation for excellence, thorough preparation and innovation, and more than 200 years of combined experience, they don’t believe in a ‘one size fits all solution.’ Ultimately, their mission is to help their clients prepare for a better life after divorce.”
