Whether mediating, collaborating, or litigating—we are always your advocates

At the Houston law offices of Jacqueline Taylor, Attorney at Law, we believe that a zealous advocate can co-exist within the realm of mediation, collaboration, and litigation. True advocates search for the most options for their clients. Whether the route is mediation, collaboration or litigation, the objective remains the same. The more options a client has, the more choices, and the more choices, the better the outcome.

We welcome the challenge of creatively solving your most pressing family law problem, be it divorce, child custody, child support, or complex property division.

Can there be such a thing as a good divorce? Using collaborative law methods, we can help you bring out the best in each other and move you toward the dissolution of your marriage in a way that minimizes high drama, retaliation, and negative emotions. Divorce is not easy for anyone, but collaboration can be your best option if you want to maintain a good relationship with your spouse after the divorce and protect your relationships with your children. Collaborative law can help you feel more in control of your situation and ensure your voice is heard.

In collaboration, you have a staff of professionals to support you and the process. Your attorney is a crucial member of that team. Other members may include mental health practitioners, financial specialists, child specialists, accountants, appraisers, and any other subject matter expert—even an oil and gas expert—necessary to the successful dissolution of your marriage.


Mediation offers both parties another out-of-court path to conflict resolution using a neutral third party to negotiate between the two parties. The mediator hears both sides and helps them achieve a solution that works for each side.

Since 2006, Jackie Taylor has been a Texas Mediator Credentialing Association (TMCA) Credentialed Distinguished Mediator, the highest level of certification possible, and was named the Frank G. Evans Mediator of the Year in 2003.


Arbitration can seem a lot like a court proceeding but without the cost and delays. In arbitration, you and your opposing party explain your respective positions to the arbitrator. The arbitrator renders a decision and both parties must honor that.

Jacqueline Taylor is a certified arbitrator by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.


When alternative methods of resolution are not possible or not the best choice for you and your situation, we represent you in the Texas family courts to make sure your voice is heard and to give you the best possible outcome for your case. We are ardent advocates for you. As we prepare your case, we keep you informed honestly and straightforwardly, the only way we know how to communicate.
