Attorney, Eric Beal, Co-Authors a New Book on Texas Divorce and Family Law That Explores the Strategies and Challenges

Attorney, Eric Beal, Co-Authors a New Book on Texas Divorce and Family Law That Explores the Strategies and Challenges

Texas Divorce Attorney Eric D. Beal

Southlake, TX (PRWEB) October 26, 2010

Eric D. Beal, recognized Texas divorce lawyer and founder of BEAL LAW FIRM, has co-authored an authoritative, insiders perspective on the unique challenges facing those practicing family law today. From the Inside the Minds™ series, and titled Strategies for Family Law in Texas, the book targets practicing attorneys and others interested in recent trends and tips for life in the Texas family law arena. Beal brings his 20 years of experience to bear in discussing subjects important to both clients and other lawyers.

With a military law background from his days as a U.S. Marine Corps Legal Officer, Beal was asked to participate in the project along with six other respected family law attorneys, including J. Lindsey Short, Jr. and Mike McCurley. In Strategies for Family Law in Texas, Beal discusses a variety of topics, including key issues and deal-breakers in divorce cases, such as geographic restriction of the children’s residence and court-ordered alimony. Also included are thoughts on effective strategies for dealing with unrealistic client expectations and client concerns, as well as the interplay between the opposing counsel, opposing party, and trial judge. Additionally, there is a discussion of the UCCJEA, grandparent rights, child support, and the Texas law on torts that may arise from adultery.

“Consider each stage of the litigation carefully and analyze the true cost of a victory,” Beal advises, “prevailing on a seemingly important point at an early stage may ultimately prove counterproductive if it consumes too much of the client’s resources and weakens the remainder of the case.” With analogies to conservation of ammunition in a military firefight and bluffing in high-stakes poker, Strategies’ analysis is both fast-paced and entertaining.

Strategies for Family Law in Texas was released by Aspatore Books, a Thomson Reuters business, and is available through

About Co-Author

Co-author Eric Beal graduated as the Highest Ranking Student (cum laude) from the Baylor School of Law in 1990. While in law school, he served as Notes and Comments Editor for the Baylor Law Review, and received numerous awards, such as the Matt Dawson Trial Advocacy Award and Baylor Outstanding Law Student.

Houston Lawyers Demand Governor Look Into Capital Punishment Problems

HOUSTON, TX – The Harris County Criminal Lawyers Association, headquartered in the greater Houston area, issued a statement Friday demanding that Texas Governor George W. Bush implement an immediate moratorium on the death penalty. HCCLA issued the demand in light of recently published studies showing the capital punishment system in Texas to be flawed and the impending execution of Gary Graham.

“Our system is rife with problems. In our haste to punish, we’re overlooking the rights of the accused,” said Richard Frankoff, HCCLA president-elect. “HCCLA is trying to make the public more aware of what’s going on in Texas courts.”

Frankoff added that the Gary Graham case is a perfect example of a system gone afoul.

As to the question of Graham’s innocence, Frankoff responded, “We don’t know whether or not Graham is innocent. Nobody does because he never got a fair trial.”

Graham was convicted of the 1981 shooting murder of Bobby Grant Lambert outside a Safeway food store in Houston. HCCLA and Graham’s attorneys say that the courts ignored potentially exculpatory witness testimony. They further claim that Graham was poorly represented and Graham’s age at the time, 17, should have been taken into consideration. Graham opponents say that all the evidence has been considered and no basis for a new trial exists.

HCCLA notes the Roy Criner case, another Texas death penalty case, as yet another example of a system that needs to be examined. Criner was convicted of the rape and murder of a 16-year-old girl. Criner’s attorney, Mike Charleton successfully introduced DNA evidence tested at two separate facilities that concluded Criner could not have been the donor. The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals however, denied Criner a new trial and upheld his conviction. The final vote was 5-4 with Judge Sharon Keller issuing the majority opinion. Ironically, Charleton also helped argue the appeal for Gary Graham before the same court.

Since Harris County has no public defender system, HCCLA often defends those who cannot afford legal counsel. The group says its chief goal will be to focus on a death penalty moratorium and crusade to make positive changes in the system.

In their statement, which was forwarded to Governor Bush’s campaign, HCCLA notes that Republican governors in three states already have a moratorium in place. They called upon Bush to follow suit so the system can be examined and solutions found.

June 16, 2000


The Harris County Criminal Lawyers Association, HCCLA, issues this statement today to demand that Governor Bush implement an immediate death penalty moratorium in Texas.

Recent studies have shown that the capital punishment system is flawed. Defendants like Gary Graham are being convicted without proper representation, while the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals continues to ignore exculpatory evidence.

Republican governors in three states have already put a moratorium in place because they have recognized that the system is not working to protect the rights of the accused. We call upon Governor Bush, to follow their brave lead.

Gary Graham is to be executed June 22, 2000. HCCLA joins the clarion call to urge Governor Bush to implement an immediate moratorium until the system can be re-examined and solutions found.

Our system is flawed, we know this to be true when a man who faces the ultimate penalty is not afforded due process. Gary Graham was not given a fair trial and is going to be executed. Some witnesses in the case have still yet to be heard in a court of law. He was poorly represented at a trial for his life. While opinions regarding the death penalty itself vary among our 400-plus members, HCCLA stands united on this position.

I need a divorce lawyer in Texas but can’t afford one, my husband is letting his GF use my car so I can’t work

by jbracken

Question by JackBlack: I need a divorce lawyer in Texas but can’t afford one, my husband is letting his GF use my car so I can’t work
Ok, I was in an abusive relationship for 5 years, he cheated on me twice and is now semi-living with his girlfriend. The military issued a no contact order so I can’t call, text, email or see him which was for my safety, but he is only obligated to give me half his BAH which is $ 500 a month for me to pay a $ 1000 mortgage, eat, pay all our bills with and take care of our pets… I was working 2 jobs to try and save money for a lawyer, but I was using my husband’s friends car which was taken from me and my husband is letting his girlfriend drive our truck so I can’t “take” it from him. I am going to loose everything if I don’t do something soon and I’m terrified! Please help!!!!
We do not have children and I’m planning to sell the house, but can’t without signatures from my husband which I can’t get with no contact… I feel like I’m just left in the house to die…

Best answer:

Answer by cka2575
go to JAG or his military supervisor(get a taxi if need be) tell them the situation and see if the can set up a meeting with you and your husband. Im sure they will work with you. Tell them you need the paperwork signed and you need use of a vehicle. If you can prove he was abusive the military doesnt play that game. The will have his rear. Dont give up there are always ways to get around. See about a local bus schedule. They may put you close to where you need to be as well.
