Why Hire Schouten Legal?

Divorces and other family law matters are often extremely stressful and emotional due to the high stakes involved. It is imperative that your attorney is level-headed, responsive to your needs, and knowledgeable about family law. Attorney Schouten is all those things and more. Graduating from law school summa cum laude, he went on to work with some of the best family law attorneys in Texas. In his time the family law field, he has worked on cases involving estates worth hundreds of millions of dollars and many other complexities. When you hire Schouten Legal, you get a big-firm experience with a small-firm feel.

Walter Schouten’s approach to cases is:

  • Family- and client-focused. Family law is vastly different than most other areas of law. The realities of family life and raising children don’t always fit neatly into the adversarial legal system. That’s because a family is not just a case, and life goes on after the close of evidence. Walter tries to keep this big picture in mind when representing and advising clients.
  • Cost-conscious. After working extensively on a wide variety of cases, he realized that family law representation for most people is way too expensive. There is a time and place for the big firm style of doing things, but it just isn’t necessary or appropriate for a lot of people. In his practice, he tries to keep fees reasonable by keeping his overhead low, relying heavily on technology, and rethinking some common billing practices.
  • Value-oriented. Part and parcel of being cost-conscious is being value-focused. In everything Walter does for a client, he asks himself how he is providing value for this person and their family. His clients deserve the best, so he wants them to feel like they really got something out of their experience with the firm.
