The Wise Choice for
LGBT Family Law Representation

Gay & Lesbian Family Law in Dallas, TX

The national perspective on same-sex marriage continues to change as advocates and supporters have won significant, legislative victories in several states. In June 2015, The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Constitution guarantees the right to marriage for all Americans, effectively legalizing same-sex marriage nationwide.

Attorney Michelle May O'Neil has been a staunch supporter of gay and lesbian rights since the beginning of her career and was the first attorney to win a case in a Texas appellate court granting standing to sue for a non-biological parent. Our entire time continues to exemplify that same dedication and advocacy for the gay and lesbian community, especially now that their marriage rights have finally been recognized nationwide.

In league with Attorney O'Neil, Attorney Karri Bertrand helps LGBTQ+ clients navigate family law cases. An experienced family lawyer and former paralegal, Karri understands the unique challenges LGBTQ+ individuals often face in the legal system. Karri's advocacy for equality in and out of the courtroom and legal acumen make her a powerful addition to any case.

Together, Karri and Michelle contribute to Gay & Lesbian Family Law in Texas, a publication dedicated to keeping LGBTQ+ individuals up-to-date on the latest LGBTQ+ news in family law. At O'Neil Wysocki P.C., it's our pleasure to represent LGBTQ+ individuals in family law cases.
