Reviews from Dunnam & Dunnam Family Law Clients
“Prior to hiring Dunnam and Dunnam, I met with several attorneys to get a feel of how they operated, their experience, and how they treated their clients. In the end, Merrilee Harmon and Dunnam & Dunnam was the best fit for me and my situation. The organization as a whole has a legacy of serving Central Texas in a variety of capacities, they are highly educated and continue to pursue knowledge to refine skills, and they treated me with the utmost respect and with my best interest at the forefront. Even now, several years removed of their services, I still refer to Dunnam & Dunnam for advice and guidance as needed. They were truly my voice when I felt I had none and their respect of my situation has empowered me since.”
“Attorney Merrilee Harmon has helped me, and unfortunately is still helping me, through a very difficult divorce. She is effective, intelligent, and honest. She knows family law very well and has a proven record of success. She is patient, and is very good at keeping my emotions in check. If you are in need of a expert family lawyer to represent you, Merrilee Harmon is the best in the business.”
“In 2003, I found myself on the brink of divorce after 9 years of marriage. Lost without a clue, I called numerous attorneys and thankfully found Merrilee Harmon. As a man fighting for custody of his two daughters, Merrilee sat me down and walked me through the entire process. After two days in court, I am happy to say I received everything I was asking for. Merrilee Harmon is an amazing attorney and I recommend her to everybody! I owe her a lifetime of gratitude for giving me my girls!”
“I have known Jim Dunnam for 30 years, back in the day when it was unheard of for the man to get custody of the kids during a divorce Jim fought for me and got custody of both my children for me, if you are lucky enough to have Jim as your attorney then you have the piece of mind knowing he will fight for your case till the very end, a stand up guy who tells you straight up front what your facing and what he can do for you, I highly recommend Jim Dunnam to anyone who is in need of an attorney for any circumstance.”-Greg Key

“I recently used Dunnam and Dunnam for a family case. I was pursuing custody of my son. Brittany Cleere helped me navigate and successfully gain custody of my son. She was amazing and helpful through out the entire mentally taxing experience. I’ve recommended and will continue to recommend the law firm of Dunnam and Dunnam for all legal matters but I will especially recommend Brittany for being such a kind fantastic person. I finally have peace of mind and I owe it all to her diligent efforts.”-Travis Dwayne
“Brittany Cleere is amazing. Ms. Cleere represented our friend, Raevyn Owens. We were worried about Raevyn getting some good help as she is a single mom with three daughters. Ms. Cleere did a great job walking Raevyn through the appropriate steps to obtain a divorce. Ms. Cleere offered great advice and steered Raevyn through various issues with the Office of the Attorney General and child custody matters. Raevyn is well on her way to a positive and productive future. We are so grateful to Ms. Cleere for helping Raevyn through this difficult journey.”-Veronica McDonough

You contact us
Contact us by phone, email or using our contact form. One of our helpful legal assistants will ask a few questions and schedule a meeting with one of our experienced and trusted lawyers. Please note that no attorney-client relationship is formed by this initial contact.
We will discuss your legal issues with you for free to determine how we can help you. Even though no attorney-client relationship is formed at this stage, everything we talk about is confidential (meaning we promise not to tell anyone) and privileged (meaning we cannot be forced to tell anyone about it).
After our first talk we will follow up with you about our proposal on how we can help you.
We will give you a short written agreement that details the charges in your case. Depending on the type of case, it can be a one time flat fee, or a retainer with an affordable hourly rate. At this point, an attorney-client relationship is formed.
