Local Family Lawyers Join Forces

Karen Blakely Turner, of Preston Hollow, and Ashley McDowell, of Park Cities, have joined forces to create Turner McDowell, PLLC, a firm dedicated exclusively to Family Law.

The new firm will provide creative approaches for the most complex divorce and family law issues, which both Turner and McDowell are well known for, according to a news release.

Turner McDowell was just ranked in U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” practicing family law.

“Ashley and I have worked together before, and I know the depth she brings to our family law practice,” Turner said about the new partnership. “She is attentive to our clients’ needs and a great courtroom lawyer. I have seen her win cases that I did not think could be won, and she always has a ‘can do’ approach.”

For the past 28 years, as a board-certified family law attorney, Turner has handled divorce, child custody, and other family law issues. Prior to starting her own practice, she gained experience working with a large, full-service downtown Dallas law firm and 18 years as a shareholder at KoonsFuller, P.C.

Turner has mastered the detail and expertise necessary in complex property cases and child custody litigation is widely experienced in the creation and execution of marital agreements and also practices collaborative law.
