For over 40 years, Doug Harrison has conducted a comprehensive legal practice involving all aspects of family law, especially complex property claims associated with divorces – often involving corporate assets. Doug has helped families and individuals throughout Texas with:

  • Negotiation, drafting and enforcement of premarital and postmarital agreements and cohabitation agreements.
  • Adoptions and modification actions relating to children, such as support, custody and possession.
  • Other issues related to community and separate property.

The primary emphasis of his practice, however, is the handling of complex divorce cases. These often involve the forensic identification, valuation and division of community property and liabilities, and the identification and tracing of separate property.

Doug’s long-time and new clients rely on his extensive experience with the division-upon-divorce of employee benefits, including non-qualified stock options, stock appreciation rights, qualified and non-qualified retirement and pension plans.  With access to other subject matter experts at Gardere, Doug can effectively handle all issues that arise in complicated divorces, such as tax, real estate, corporate, immigration, intangible property rights and employee benefit issues. He is also trained in collaborative law and is a member of The Collaborative Alliance.

Clients appreciate Doug’s experience, knowledge of the law and empathy for the stress associated with these matters.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
