In The Trenches With You

It’s time for another Friday morning networking meeting. Phillip Herr walks to the front of the room, turns around, and sees roughly 40 faces staring back at him as he readies to pitch the benefits of his family law firm — in 30 seconds or less. Most people might be a little nervous standing in front of so many people, and if you didn’t know Herr, who is clean-cut and dressed in the same suit and tie he’ll wear to court later that day, you’d think he might be a little dry in his approach.

But then he grabs a guitar, and just like that, he takes total command of the room.

Monday, we can talk to you…
Tuesday, Wednesday, we file your lawsuit…
Thursday, argue your case for you…
It’s Friday. Justice for you!

Herr admits that it is unlikely that a lawsuit can be resolved in one week. Herr — who in several networking circles has become known as The Singing Lawyer — also has another ditty that draws inspiration from the 1960s band America. While the song bit is a winner at networking meetings, Phillip Herr is far from a one-hit-wonder.

For starters, he has experience from both sides of the bench as a former Associate Judge. Herr presided as the Associate Judge for Title IV-D Court #35, which served seven counties in the area. A legal veteran of 16 years, he is a trial-tested family law attorney at the Law Office of Phillip M. Herr, PLLC in Flower Mound. He’s fluent in Spanish and spent a nine-month tour of duty in Bosnia-Herzegovina during Operation Joint Guard, where he was awarded two service medals.

All of that, and yes, even his ability to disarm an audience through song, makes him the experienced and compassionate attorney you want in the trenches with you when your life turns upside down and you need a glimmer of hope. Nothing is too complex, whether it’s divorce, child support, adoption, or custody modification. The Law Office of Phillip M. Herr, PLLC also works vigorously for clients in the areas of estate planning and business law.

“At the end of the day, if I can provide a client hope, that’s the real blessing. Because when someone is going through a divorce or child custody, it’s a lot to handle alone,” Herr said.

That, and he knows how to pop off a few killer tunes with that guitar.
