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.
“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.”
