The Texas Academy of Family Law Specialists has honored Heather King, a Managing Shareholder of KoonsFuller PC, for her distinguished service to the practice of family law with the Sam Emison Award. The prestigious award is only given to one attorney or judge in the State of Texas each year.

DALLAS (PRWEB) August 16, 2018

KoonsFuller Managing Shareholder Heather King has been presented the prestigious Sam Emison Award by the Texas Academy of Family Law Specialists at the annual TexasBarCLE Advanced Family Law conference in San Antonio. The Sam Emison Award is one of the most illustrious honors a Texas family lawyer or judge can receive and is earned in recognition of having a significant impact on the practice of family law. According to the Texas Academy of Family Law Specialists, the award is “bestowed upon one exceptionally distinguished family law practitioner or judge who has demonstrated a significant commitment and made significant contributions to the practice of family law in the State of Texas.” Heather is the 35th recipient of the award to date.

Heather is the Managing Shareholder of KoonsFuller’s Southlake Office. Board certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, she expertly represents clients from the beginning of a case through trial, settlement or appeal. In her 23 years of practice, Heather has earned a reputation for her mastery of the appeals process; many of her appellate cases have been published in the annotations to the Texas Family Code. Her broad range of knowledge and courtroom savvy have earned her numerous accolades, including Texas Super Lawyers by Thomson Reuters (2003-17), D Magazine’s “Best Women Lawyers in Dallas” (2010), and Top 10 Family Law Attorney in Texas by the National Academy of Family Law Attorneys (2017). Heather has also been listed among The Best Lawyers in America© in family law for a dozen consecutive years by Best Lawyers and Co., LLC, (2007 to present).

“I’m incredibly honored to be counted among the ranks of such a renowned group of Texas family law attorneys,” said Heather King. “When it comes down to it, the ultimate goal in family law should be improving our clients’ lives at a most personal level. Families that I can help find a fresh start inspire and drive me to succeed.”

This is not the first time a KoonsFuller attorney has been honored with this elite award. The Texas Academy of Family Law Specialists bestowed the honor upon Ike Vanden Eykel, Managing Shareholder and CEO of the firm, in 2010, William C. Koons, a founder of the firm, in 1995, and Ken Fuller, a founder of the firm, in 1985. “The Sam Emison Award is the most prestigious award in Texas family law, and I couldn’t think of a more deserving winner,” said Ike Vanden Eykel. “In the decade she has spent with us at KoonsFuller and before, Heather rapidly emerged as a leader who can handle the most complex family law cases in Texas.”

Founded in 1978, KoonsFuller is the largest family law-focused civil litigation firm in Texas and the Southwest. Firm lawyers represent clients in divorce. KoonsFuller has five offices in Texas – Dallas, Denton, Houston, Plano and Southlake. The firm has been named a “Tier 1” firm in both Dallas and Houston for family law by U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” in 2018.
