Summary

Jennifer Stanton Hargrave is an experienced family law trial attorney who is also skilled at helping clients construct creative settlement agreements. Jennifer knows that in family law, there are battles that need to be fought. However, she also knows that every divorce does not need to inevitably end in warfare, and that a non-adversarial approach can provide the best results for the whole family.

Jennifer has been practicing law since 1995. She began her law career working for a litigation firm, and was then hired as in-house counsel to a corporation in the financial services industry. In 2006, she left the financial services industry to begin her career in family law. Jennifer is Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. She is a member of the Texas Academy of Family Law Specialists, the Dallas Bar Family Law Section and the Collaborative Law Institute of Texas.

Jennifer resides in Dallas, Texas, with her husband and three children. Among other community activities, she is active in the Episcopal Diocese of Dallas, sits on the Board of The Family Place, and is a volunteer at the Episcopal School of Dallas.
