Keith D. Becker

attorney keith becker


I was board certified in family law in 1998. At the time of the exam, only 48 attorneys in the state of Texas were eligible to sit for the certification test. Of those 48, only 24 passed. This is a very difficult exam to pass and it mandates that the individual have a superior working knowledge of family law.


I practice in Dallas, Collin, Grayson, Kaufman, Rockwall, Denton and Ellis counties. Currently, I live in Pottsboro, Tx, a small town on Lake Texoma. I live there with my 14 year old daughter, whom I raised, along with her mother, since my divorce in 2001. Being a divorce and single father, I have a personal understanding of the difficult struggles a person goes through during a divorce or custody matter.

I enjoy fishing, woodworking, painting and spending time with my daughter doing pretty much anything.

AVVO Profile



My ex-wife tried to get custody of our daughter twice. Keith handled my case both times and both times we won. He has great attention to detail and left nothing to chance. He is extremely knowledgeable, kind, flexible and caring. I have recommended him in the past and will keep doing so in the future.

Professional Review/Referral

I worked with Keith Becker on a family law (post divorce) defense and countersuit. Keith has a strong family law knowledge, and I had confidence in his counsel and approach to the case. If my case re-opens, I would work with Keith again. And I have referred him to others needing a good family law attorney.

Much Gratitude

Thank you Keith for being there for me and my family. The stress you relieved by your knowledge and professionalism was tremendous. I appreciate all you have done for me and it is clear that you have my best interest at heart.

Thank you Keith for great help in the gravest of times

When I entered a rather tough period in my life Keith was very responsive with honest good advise. It was obvious to me that he was looking out for my interest before his own wallet which was a breath of fresh air.. After a few good sessions he helped me realize a few things and really helped out. Happy to say I am still married!

What a Lawyer is supposed to be.

Mr Becker was recommended to me by another lawyer. He would be my fourth attorney.
In a very sad and crazy twisted divorce and custody battle, Mr Becker was straightforward and no nonsense. He handled opposing counsel the way they needed to be handled. I only wish I had had Mr. Becker on my side from the beginning. Run , don’t walk to seek his advice and counsel. He is what Lawyers are supposed to be.

Best experience in a bad situation.

As difficult as these matters can be, Keith Becker and his staff helped make the process as smooth and painless as possible. There was always clear communication and he was easily able to explain all our options and their possible ramifications which greatly helped me make decisions that were best for my daughter and I. I feel like he and his office are very knowledgeable and honest. Should I ever be in the same predicament, I’d definitely work with him again.


When my ex- husband filed for divorce and filed for sole custody I felt lost in the legal world. Thanks to the Lord, I found Mary. She fought for me every day. It was a painful and difficult process to divorce and fight for custody but Mary made it easier. She told me exactly what to do and never gave up when things got hard. I love this woman, she's simply the best. Legal Services

Throughout a 2yr custody battle for primary residence of my stepdaughter, Mary was very prompt, precise and patient in working with us even through the loss of her husband. She was very much involved in every step of the way, even helping us see positive when we'd hear so much negative. Mary stands for what she believes is the best interest and fights even harder. I would most definitely recommend Mary to anyone else needing help, she will stick with you and fight it out. Legal Services
