DALLAS, May 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Veteran attorney Kevin Fuller has been selected the family lawyer of the year for 2009 in the North Texas area and is featured in the publication, Texas' Best Lawyers.

Fuller is a partner in the Dallas office of Koons, Fuller, Vanden Eykel & Robertson, the southwest's largest family law firm. He is one of six Koons Fuller attorneys spotlighted in the publication, the most of any Texas family law firm.

Texas' Best Lawyers is a compilation of attorneys selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America, a highly acclaimed rating service for attorneys all across the country. The guide was distributed this morning in newspapers all across the state.

An introduction to the list explains, "Lawyers cannot buy their way into this guide. They must earn a spot through exemplary legal work that attracts and maintains the notice of their colleagues."

Fuller is one of three attorneys named 2009 Lawyers of the Year for the Dallas area based on an extraordinarily high level of peer recognition. Other Koons Fuller attorneys listed in the guide include Julie Crawford, Mike DeBruin, Heather King, Rick Robertson and Ike Vanden Eykel.

About Fuller, the guide says, "The 50-year-old lawyer caters to a clientele of high net worth individuals, and families dealing with complex custody battles and division of assets. But, having weathered many a courtroom battle, Fuller's practice is now trending more toward the collaborative law approach. Even with winning jury verdicts, Fuller says he noticed a lot of 'post-verdict carnage' that tore families apart."

A 25-year veteran of the divorce wars, Fuller is board certified in family law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. He is president of the Collaborative Law Institute of Texas, a member of the Dallas Collaborative Alliance and served on the board of directors of the Dallas Child Guidance Clinic, where he helped to initiate the first divorce recovery classes for parents and children.

Koons, Fuller, Vanden Eykel & Robertson was one of the first family law boutiques in the country and is now one of the largest, with 24 attorneys in four North Texas locations - Uptown Dallas, West Plano, Southlake Town Square and Denton.
