Family Law

There are very few impossible cases, just lawyers who get tired and give up. The world of Family Law has many faces and most are very formidable, even terrifying. Mary D. McKnight, in her 40 years of courtroom practice, has encountered every one of these faces, without turning away.

Dallas Family Attorney

McKnight’s rewards for these hard-fought battles have not always been monetary. Rather, her greatest fulfillment has come from the lifelong bonds of friendship with former clients, as she has watched many of their children grow up successfully through college and graduate school.

Mary D. McKnight continues to enjoy practicing family law and relentlessly pursues her client’s rights from the intial filings in the Trial Courts through the entire Appellate process if necessary.


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
