About Kern Law, PLLC


Our Commitment

At Kern Law, PLLC, we offer creative solutions to meet the needs of each family we serve. We focus on the best interest of all families, especially children. While all legal matters can be stressful, family law issues can be particularly emotional. We can help to minimize the stress on families with our compassionate approach, and clear, candid legal advice.  

We believe that family relationships are the most important in our lives. Because of the importance of those relationships, family law is our sole area of practice. Lori M. Kern is Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, and has dedicated her practice to protecting what her clients value the most. By achieving Board Certification, Lori M. Kern is among a select group of family law attorneys demonstrating an exceptional level of competence in family law.  

We have extensive experience in assisting clients with divorces, adoptions, modifications, custody and support disputes, and complex property issues, including high net worth divorce cases. Lori M. Kern also serves as an Amicus Attorney in contested custody cases in Fort Bend County.  

We handle each case uniquely, because the issues that each family faces are unique. There are many different approaches to resolving family law issues and assisting clients, including litigation, collaborative law, mediation, and child advocacy. Family law cases can impact every aspect of your life, and the life of your child. We promote strategies to minimize conflict, promote cooperation and agreement, and provide resolutions. 


How To Proceed

Whether you are contemplating divorce, dealing with child custody and support issues, exploring adoption, or addressing a complex division of property, it can be difficult to understand the options available to you. We will help you to make the best decision possible for your situation, and we represent our clients with professionalism, integrity, attention to detail, and commitment to excellence.  

During your consultation, we will provide you with honest, straightforward advice regarding your case.  We understand that clients want to avoid exorbitant legal fees and preserve their assets, while still retaining high quality legal counsel. We work with you through each phase of your case to ensure that your funds are used to maximize results.   

In many cases, parties are able to reach an agreement to settle their issues. This can be achieved through several different avenues, including mediation, informal settlement, or collaborative law. We encourage clients to pursue these options, since they generally are more cost-effective and less stressful than trial. However, not all cases are able to settle outside of Court, and it is necessary to present the facts of the case at trial. We are skilled in both negotiation and litigation to ensure resolution, regardless of the level of conflict in your case.
