“It has been a pleasure serving the Dallas community for close to 40 years.”

– Larry Hance

“Excellent support, flexibility and timeliness. Jonathan brought to the table calm advise, honesty and highest level of professionalism. As difficult as the divorce was, Jonathan took great care to make it painless for me. Thank you!” – Client

“Jonathan and his team were super helpful during my divorce proceedings. Jonathan provided sound advice and fair billing. I will definitely hire Jonathan and Hance Law again in the future if necessary.” – Client

“Bryce did an amazing job for us. We ran upon some surprises along the way making the unexpected the expected. Bryce held strong stayed level and got the job done. I would highly recommend him. Being a rancher from across the state Bryce made us feel very confident and helped us relax when things got tough.” – Client

“I hired Bryce to represent me in my divorce after my first lawyer failed to represent my interests. Bryce was fantastic, and I was very happy with his firm. I felt that my concerns were heard, and I trusted that he had my best interests in mind. He was simultaneously warm and personable, but also very professional. I very highly recommend him.” – Client

“I hired Bryce and he was perfect for me. He handled my needs and interests warmly, friendly and professionally. I knew my matters were being handled just as I needed them to be. I completely recommend Bryce. I was comfortable and very happy working with him and others at Hance Law Group.” – Client

“Going through a divorce is a “gut wrenching” experience. Larry is not only experienced and knowledgeable, he is compassionate and cares. Most importantly, he protected my rights to have extensive visitation with my kids. And, he did all of this with a minimum of attorneys’ fees. Since then I have referred numerous friends, clients and acquaintances to Larry. I have received nothing but good reports about his work.” – Client

I appreciate Larry Hance and his group for their collaborative approach to difficult family situations. The Hance Law Group is pro-family. Their goal is to limit collateral damage when families face divorce, child custody and other difficult circumstances. As a last-ditch marriage counselor, I appreciate this group for their sensitivity and care for all parties involved!” – Client

Larry is trustworthy, competent, compassionate: these are the three qualities I was looking for in an attorney when my wife told me she wanted a divorce. I was referred to Larry by another attorney who assured me Larry is the type of attorney who genuinely looks out for his clients’ true interests. I took a bit of a leap of faith, and he was right. Larry gently walked me through the collaborative divorce process, and took the time to make sure I understood the landscape so that I can make informed decisions every step of the way. He empathized with my situation, which was a major factor in helping me make the right decisions under the emotional turmoil I was operating under due to the circumstances of my divorce…Bottom line, Larry helped me get everything that I wanted in the divorce terms (child custody and the financial settlement), while helping lay the groundwork for me to have a very friendly and cooperative relationship with my ex. When I relay my divorce experience to friends who have been through the process, they always remark on its storybook nature, compared to theirs. I know it’s not the most ideal life event to brag about, but I truly did have a wonderful divorce, in large part due to Larry and his team. Highly recommended.” – Client

“Larry is an outstanding lawyer specializing in family law who has been honored by D Magazine as one of the top family law attorneys in Dallas.  Larry was also one of the pioneers of collaborative law. Larry is not only great at what he does, he does so at a fair and reasonable price. I have referred more than 40 of my friends and clients and all of the feedback I have received has been complimentary.  Indeed, when I was going through my divorce my first choice was Larry—who did a great job.” – Client

“I am a trial attorney myself who found myself going through a very difficult divorce several years ago. I was referred to Larry by another trial attorney colleague for whom I have the utmost respect who, I believe, Larry had also represented. Obviously, I am in a unique position to judge another attorney’s work. Larry was simply outstanding. First of all, he was very compassionate about the situation. Secondly, he and his legal team did outstanding work and successfully negotiated a settlement against one of Dallas’ most tenacious family law attorneys. His fee was beyond reasonable for a complex divorce settlement. I recommend all my clients and friends to Larry. You will not find a more skilled, thoughtful and compassionate family law attorney in Texas.”– Client

“As a former therapist and child custody evaluator, I’ve observed Larry’s work with several of my past clients and examinees for more than 25 years. Larry is a conscientious, effective family lawyer who is sensitive to the emotional concerns of his clients and to how those concerns may affect their cases. Just as important, Larry and his firm maturely handle the inevitable conflicts that arise in family law cases—no bullying or posturing; just confident, problem-solving competence.” – Mental Health Professional

“In less than three months after filing, we were able to negotiate and finalize a good settlement that exceeded my expectations, with minimal conflict. I am grateful the divorce decree was finalized without a contentious, drawn out court battle. Although my case has unique components, I believe that Larry Hance and his team helped to set the tone from the beginning, and that a non-adversarial approach worked best for my circumstances. I’m very pleased with the quality, cost and scheduling aspects of my divorce, and the professional manner in which it was handled. I highly recommend Larry and his firm.– Client

“As a mental health professional, I am accountable to the clients I serve to collaborate with other professionals that share my ethics and commitment for their wellbeing. Larry Hance and his associates are the only family law firm I have confidence with care and concern for the client. Over the past 5 years, my confidence has not waned. Most importantly, the quality of Hance Law’s legal representation for the client and professional reputation amongst the community is unmatched.” – Mental Health Professional

“I think it is truly a miracle that we are where we are–you truly have special skills, Larry. I prayed to God for a lawyer and I was led to you–I feel very blessed.– Client

I was lucky enough to hear about Hance Law firm from my uncle Mark Cox, who is an attorney in Oklahoma City…I worked with Bryce Hopson. He and his team made getting through an incredibly stressful divorce as much of a breeze as possible. I’m talking about a divorce that finalized right after Christmas and I kid you not, every time I got off of the phone with Bryce or one of his assistants, I felt better. I was always able to get ahold of someone and responses to my questions about divorce or legal jargon, etc. were almost immediate. Bryce had my best interest in mind the entire time.” – Client

Larry is first and foremost a man of integrity, which I am told comes from the same root word as the word “integrate.” He is a well integrated, kind, competent and respectful gentleman. In short, he is a lawyer’s lawyer who brings the very finest legal practice to his clients. I have enormous respect for him and his work. I have referred dozens of clients to Larry Hance, knowing that during one of the most stressful and hurtful experiences of their lives, they will be in the fine hands, the competent hands, and the kind hands of a master of his craft. I recommend him with no reservations. He is a fine and knowledgeable human being.” – Mental Health Professional

“Larry is an excellent attorney! He represented me both in my divorce and in an issue following my divorce. Not only is he very knowledgeable about the law but he is a calming force in the midst of a storm. I trusted Larry and followed his instruction and the outcome of both of my cases were favorable. I would never use another attorney in this area of law.” – Client

The Hance Law Group offers a rare blend of compassionate and smart—very smart—advocacy. As a pioneer in collaborative divorce, the Hance Law Group avoids stirring up unnecessary conflict and fees that leave a family emotionally and financially destitute. While safeguarding their client’s emotional well-being, this group pulls no punches when it comes to protecting their client’s financial interests. But they do so in the least destructive and costly manner.” – Mental Health Professional

“I hired Bryce to represent me in my divorce after my first lawyer failed to represent my interests. Bryce was fantastic, and I was very happy with his firm. I felt that my concerns were heard, and I trusted that he had my best interests in mind. He was simultaneously warm and personable, but also very professional. I very highly recommend him.” – Client

“Thank you for your excellent representation and steadfast encouragement and friendship, without which I hardly think I could have endured this ordeal. Your advocacy, integrity, and gentleman-ness have been matchless.– Client

“This has been a long and protracted process due to the emotional behaviors of both the principals. Prior to the actual filing for divorce by my spouse, you offered excellent counsel and advice to me and were available to telephone before we signed the engagement letter. Your efforts and availability caused me to have a greater degree of calm when the actual process started. Though my spouse broke all agreements made concerning the mechanics of the divorce process, you counseled that we focus on the big picture and not react to many emotional games that were played as a design to weaken our negotiating position. I came to trust your high degree of rationality and this allowed me to not pull some of the “crazy” antics that usually happen in an emotional situation such as this. I appreciated your “conciliation-not confrontation” approach and your efforts to negotiate a settlement that is extremely in my favor. At the same time, you demonstrated that confrontation can be used effectively when it is used sparingly. Concerning your legal assistant, she is extremely easy to work with and many times put up with my emotional outbursts with caring and empathy. Though you are not a psychotherapy service,she made me feel that someone understood what I was going through. She returned my calls promptly and treated me with respect and dignity, even when I may not have deserved it. I now understand that the outcome is far more important than the incidents and no action is better than an adverse reaction. In fact, no action is a very effective reaction. Thanks again for your help and counsel. – Client

“Thank you so much for all of your help. We definitely could not have done this without you. With both of your help I have grown and accomplished more than I thought I ever could. Thank you again for all you’ve done for my family.” – Client

“You have been a pivotal character in my life these past several years. I can’t thank you enough for your integrity, your caring attitude, professional demeanor and solid advice. – Client

I think I would be remiss if I didn’t thank you for all you have done for me and my children. I don’t know if you understand that until we started this process I was ‘listened to’ but not really ‘heard’. Not only did you hear me, you made it possible for me to rectify a hopeless situation. I have great confidence in my future thanks to your advice and support. Thank you for giving me my voice back.– Client

“What a pleasure it was for me to have the chance to work with you! Often I look with dismay on the state of our legal system and its attorneys. It is a joy for me to realize that there are still lawyers of intelligence and integrity–of which you are a prime example. – Mediator

Larry Hance and his team were WONDERFUL advocates for me in my divorce. Collaborative Law was perfect for me and my family, and Larry navigated it thoughtfully, respectfully, and successfully. I am grateful to Larry and his staff for always working for my best outcome!” – Client

“I have had the pleasure of working with Larry Hance, in collaborative divorce matters, for 15 years. I have found him to be highly skilled, and equally important, very compassionate as a lawyer. He has, as I have told him over the years, the gift of active listening and a strong sense of empathy for others.– Mental Health Professional

I wanted to thank all of you for the time and energy that you put into my case. If I had it to do over again I would not change a thing. You were all great.” – Client

“Thank you so much!!! You are the best attorney…it was like a pro football player playing against a high school player. You are just in a different “league”. I really appreciate your hard work as well as everyone on your team!!!” – Client

“Occasionally I tell someone about my divorce and every time I talk about you and your “team” it is with the utmost praise. I cannot tell you how much I thank you for taking care of my son and I as you did. Most of all I thank you for caring. – Client

Larry Hance has more integrity in his big toe than most people ever hope to have. He is a gentleman and a scholar, and a damn fine lawyer.” – Mental Health Professional

“I have seen up close Larry Hance’s legal work for twenty years with both diagnosed and undiagnosed patients. He always has a gentle and firm hand in his work with my patients. He has treated my patients with confidence and with kindness while showing that he is a master of his forensic craft. He is without question the “go-to” man in collaborative divorce proceedings.” – Mental Health Professional

“Your firm came highly recommended from my sister who is trust/estates attorney in NYC. I think the way you promote your firm and your accomplishments enabled her to make a very good recommendation. I was very satisfied with Jonathan’s entire approach and representation.– Client

“Thank you for your work on my case. You did a fantastic job and I appreciate it. The firm was fantastic and I couldn’t have been more pleased on all levels and just wanted to let you now that I really appreciate everything.” – Client

“As the miracle dust settles, I have tried to find the proper words to say how much it has meant to me to have you alongside me as my counselor, lawyer, sage, calm guide, and friend during the most vulnerable time of my life. I am ever grateful for you, your talents, your practice, and your skilled associates – you are truly an artist.” – Client

“I am so proud of Jonathan. Not only did he get Sharla a needs based settlement beyond what she would have received in Court; he also started the reconciliation and healing for this family. Great lawyer doing great work.– Mediator

“Thanks so much for the way you handled everything–I appreciate everything you did. You truly make a positive contribution to your profession. I feel very lucky to have someone with your qualities representing me. Please don’t ever change your style.” – Client

“Many thanks for your professional advice and attitude during my collaborative divorce. I truly appreciated your kindness and respect during this difficult process. My attorney spoke very highly of you; his compliments were warranted!” – Client’s Former Spouse

“Your professional and caring attitude was appreciated very much, as was your attention to your fees.” – Client

“I could not have asked for better counsel and representation. Please forgive me and my testiness, particularly my remarks about attorneys. You practice with skill, and self-assurance. I never felt abused. I only felt that I was being cared for appropriately.” – Client

“Thank you both for all of your help with the agreement. I enjoyed working with your firm and will refer others your way when I have the chance to do so. Larry – I appreciate your counsel. I’m very happy with the final agreement.” – Client

“Y’all have worked hard and been patient and helped me get what I feel I deserve and what is really best for my son. Considering what the outcome could have been, I know these terms are SO wonderful and more than I thought I’d end up with. I know I could’ve given up a long time ago or with different counsel ended up down a completely different path.” – Client

I do not have the words to convey my heartfelt appreciation to you, and Bryce, and Larry, Bev, Robin, – well, essentially the entire Hance Law firm – for all your hard work sorting through the moving-target issues of this divorce. You all have gone above and beyond my expectations by providing encouragement and moral support to (my sister: “wife in a very contentious divorce”) in addition to excellent legal advice. I can tell that you care about my sister and put your hearts into your work.” – Client’s Sister

“Just wanted you to know that I got a call a few minutes ago from a VERY thrilled client who Bryce got an excellent result for at mediation in record time! Thanks to you and your firm for allowing us to add value to OUR client relationship by associating with you!” – Lawyer

“I want to thank you for what I feel was exemplary handling of my case. Your professionalism and concern for my situation (even while on vacation a thousand miles away!) and your ability to successfully deal with an impossible time frame was very much appreciated.” – Client

“Just a note of thanks for your help above and beyond. You probably saw me less than your average client, but what I appreciated most about your services was that you handled my divorce the way I wanted it handled. The ability to read a situation and provide excellent services according to it’s parameters is a valuable skill. It goes without saying that your support staff is exceptional. Thanks again and best wishes in the future.” – Client
