family law

Scroggins Law Group PLLC is a family law boutique based in Dallas, Texas, set apart from their competitors through outstanding legal achievements and client-focused representation. Led by the well-renowned and board-certified attorney, Mark Scroggins, the firm seeks to deliver excellent legal services with the high standard of customer service that their clients deserve.

Situated in Dallas, Texas and serving families throughout North Texas and the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, Scroggins Law Group PLLC is a boutique family law firm committed to providing representation to individuals involved in divorce, child custody, enforcements, modifications and other family law matters.

When Mark Scroggins, Founder of SLG and board-certified attorney in family law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, established SLG, he did so with a vision to provide a high-end, ‘concierge’ service in the representation of divorce, child custody and family law clients. By prioritizing quality over quantity and choosing not to take as many cases on as their competitors do, SLG is able to provide the high levels of conscientious, personalized legal services that makes them unique.

This is compounded by the firm’s ingenious approach to delivering legal services. SLG’s team of attorneys are bold, creative and recruited for their ability to think outside the box when creating solutions for even the most complex legal issues presented to them by their clients. Often, this means not taking the most aggressive and direct route but thinking laterally to find a solution that is beneficial to all parties involved. As Mark explains, “The solution to every problem is not a hammer. We believe in ‘walking softly and carrying a big stick.’” It’s a unique approach to legal services, but it’s one that has been consistently proven to serve clients well.

Moreover, the complexity of family law lies in the fact it is the intersection of so many different areas of the law, meaning that to represent individuals in legal matters within this field requires strong knowledge and practical experience in many other different specialties as well. Expertise is also required in other fields outside of the law and as such, every day SGL relies heavily on its extensive network of experts in psychology, psychiatry, pediatrics, accounting, forensic accounting, business valuation, real estate, oil and gas, and much more besides. Only through collaboration with these experts in a vast selection of fields is SGL able to deliver its award-winning, comprehensive services.

Consequently, Mark is vocal of his pride in the SGL team, who he considers to be the backbone of the firm. “I am so proud of our paralegals. They have the most client contact of any group in the firm as they are handling the majority of the day to day issues that clients are faced with, such as propounding discovery, responding to discovery, document review and organization.” As the first point of contact for the rest of the firm, SGL’s team of paralegals are representatives of the professional yet approachable culture of the firm, which guarantees effective outcomes delivered with personal service.

The majority of SGL’s clients involved in marital property division matters are C-level executives, entrepreneurs and business owners with substantial assets that require the employment of additional experts, such as forensic accountants or business valuation experts who will properly assess separate property and community property issues, as well as the values of businesses within the community estate. SGL also deals with individuals and families, dealing with each client with the same, high level of respect, conscientiousness and transparency throughout the whole process.

Mark himself has practiced family law throughout the state of Texas for over twenty-five years, earning his reputation as an experienced, effective and aggressive trial attorney with sound understanding of business matters that equips him well in dealing with all aspects of family law. Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, Mark is counted among the less than 2% of lawyers in Texas to have this certification, which has only helped build his strong reputation amongst executives, professionals, business owners and entrepreneurs for his dynamic style and unparalleled expertise in family law and business litigation matters.

Mark’s unique background in cutting-edge litigation technology is effectively utilized by SGL to increase the benefits offered to the firm’s litigation clients. It is also used by Mark himself, who predominantly deals in contentious or high-stakes family law litigation cases for his high net worth and business owner clients, which involve child custody or complex property issues. It is in these cases that Mark truly thrives, being able to demonstrate his prowess and use his superior insights and aggressive approach to overcome challenges posed to his clients by ruthless or unruly opponents, in order to deliver his clients’ desired outcomes.

Mark has published works and articles in several journals and papers throughout his career, including the Texas Lawyer, and has also spoken at length about litigation technology before numerous organizations and corporate clients.

In recognition of his many years of work for clients and his sector, Mark has been the proud recipient of awards and accolades prior to receiving AI’s Leading Child Custody and Complex Property Dispute Litigator of the Year, Texas. Mark is also among those who make up less than 5% of attorneys in the State of Texas to be selected to the list of Texas Super Lawyers by Thompson Reuters, 2014 – 2020, and was also selected as a member of the Nation’s Top One Percent by the National Association of Distinguished Counsel in 2015 and 2016.

In that same period, Mark was also rated 10 Best by the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys™ in 2015 and 2016 and in 2003, he was featured in Vogue Magazine among the Top Lawyers for Women in Texas. Mark is also the proud member of numerous professional associations and memberships, including the Texas Bar Foundation, in which he is a Fellow. This prestigious foundation can only be joined through invitation and includes less than 1% of all attorneys in the state of Texas.

It is therefore unsurprising that Mark has led SGL to high levels of success and national acclaim. Growing and developing the firm is taken very seriously by Mark and his colleagues, and the recruitment of new talent is based heavily on the firm’s culture. Whilst intellectual ability is of course vital, SGL knows the value of unity and teamwork in leveraging success, and only candidates who feel like the right fit for the business from the start are considered.

Rarely has the strength of the SGL team felt more important than in 2020 and amidst the challenges posed by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. However, with some people working remotely, some in the office, the firm has been able to pull through an undoubtedly tricky period and look forward to a bright future of continued success. Mark is looking forward to that point when he and his team can reunite to have more in-person interaction and celebrate their successful growth together.
