"Law is the system of rules of conduct established by the government of a society to correct wrongs, maintain the stability of political and social authority, and deliver justice. Working as a lawyer involves the practical application of abstract legal theories and knowledge to solve specific individualized problems, or to advance the interests of those who retain (i.e., hire) lawyers to perform legal services."


A text from a client after an exceedingly difficult day in a family law trial:

Although each criminal case is different, the desires of our clients exhibit similar traits.  We recognize the anxiety and hardship associated with a prolonged criminal prosecution and work to rapidly move for the dismissal or reduction of all criminal charges against you. Where applicable, we work to provide alternatives that limit the likelihood of a criminal penalty affecting your liberty and livelihood.

Some commonly asked questions include:

  • How serious are the charges against me?
  • What can be done to get the charges against me dismissed?
  • How do I challenge the legality of my arrest?
  • I made a mistake, what options are available to me?

It is my job to provide you with answers.




General Information on Landlord-Tenant

 Tenants have rights under the law.  Most of the time they are bullied into believing certain actions are correct or else the landlord will follow through on threats.  The language in the lease is important but most mom and pop landlords are too cheap to hire a good lease prepared, so they muddle through with provisions that cannot or will not hold up under scrutiny of law.  For example, repairs and habitability of the premises.

A word about Justices of the Peace:  they are fair, but understand, they are political and tenants come and while landlords stick around.  So you need a lawyer in sticky cases to point out the errors judges make in court cases.

Landlords prepare poorly for eviction cases, so in a lot of cases, if the landlord threatens you with eviction, it is possible that it will not come soon if you let a lawyer look at the Notice To Vacate and Notice To File Forcible Entry and Detainer.  Eviction can possibly be stalled.  You may not need to be in a hurry to vacate.  If tenants handle the case correctly, tenants can buy some time.  For starters, you might even ask the landlord for your deposit back so that you can afford to move.  He might say that you owe rent.  Ask him would he rather have his place back sooner or the deposit money?

Lawyers can find errors in the process.

If you are about to sign a lease, make sure you understand all the small print.  Take it to a lawyer to see if you are getting off to a bad start with the landlord.

If you are threatened with eviction, come see me.

Ending a marriage can be a difficult, emotionally taxing process, especially when children are involved. At the Law Firm of Eric Jensen, we can help you through this emotionally and financially demanding time by giving you confident, focused legal advice to make decisions concerning child custody and visitation, division of assets and debt, and other related concerns. We have handled hundreds of divorces over almost 30 years of practice, and have the experience and knowledge to help your divorce proceed smoothly.

Why do I need an Attorney?
An experienced divorce attorney can help you make critical decisions regarding child custody, spousal support, and property distribution by advising you of what is allowed under Texas state law. As a lay person, you may be unfamiliar with the materials needed and the processes necessary to complete a divorce and establish support networks to reestablish your life. Perhaps you are saddled with debts that are not legally yours, or you took part in building a business and want your fair share. A divorce lawyer can give you sound advice and peace of mind in fashioning a divorce agreement to suit your needs.

contact us online. Let our experience work for you.

In Texas, the final results of most divorces are determined by the way in which they begin. The beginning of the divorce is guided by the way in which the marriage ends. Just like "good" and "bad" marriages, there are "good" and "bad" divorces.

The way in which the wife and the husband behave and communicate with each other during the most stressful moments in their marriage, could serve as a mirror image of how they will behave through the divorce process. It means that the Anatomy of Divorce and Separation in Texas will inevitably contain the same tissue as the marriage. The metaphoric tissue of the ending marriage is frail, torn apart with many scars from the past. Our challenge here is to strengthen it so that it can sustain the divorce process in the present time.

In his Texas Divorce and Family Law practice, Eric Jensen of the Texas Legal Team handles his clients who are going through divorce or matrimonial and family matters in traditional matrimonial litigation. All parties must agree with the court upon filing of the Original Petition and Original Answer to utilize alternative dispute resolutions like mediation if settlement negotiations does not resolve the case. Mr. Jensen excels in mediation. Mr. Jensen always insists on sitting down with all the parties as often as necessary to strike up a good settlement. My definition of the a good settlement is where you walk away a little unhappy, giving up interests in property for receiving other interests in other property.

Before you start the separation and divorce process in Texas, you must prepare carefully so that you can tap into all of the resources that you will need at the appropriate moment. All of the emotions associated with the ending of a relationship like anger, fear and sorrow must be transformed into positive energy to manage your separation and divorce successfully.

Ideally, while you are contemplating separation and divorce, while you may feel your world is falling apart, you must also begin building your new life. Before you take any action, legal or otherwise, try to find ways to take control of the divorce process. Personal power and control are essential to this and any other fundamental human experience. This is the time to be strong and centered. End the pain of marital discord. Get organized and let's get going.

While still married and living together with your spouse, it is advisable to save all of the receipts for major purchases and prepare an inventory of all of the property and assets acquired during the marriage. Make sure you have all of the important papers and documents including deeds to real property and income tax returns.

Keep accurate financial records, copies of insurance policies, try to obtain credit in your name, make sure that title and registration to your car are in your name; and keep a new inventory of your safe deposit box.

If you feel you are getting close to filing for divorce in Texas, make sure that your valuable documents are stored in a safe place and obtain a safe address for personal mail. Consult an reputable Texas divorce attorney. Consider repayment of family loans and upgrade your clothes and personal appearance.

If you plan to leave home, take the documents I mentioned above with you as well as all valuable personal property items that you want the court to award to you. Whether you take them or not, the Court can award temporary possession and use of them to either spouse during the pendency of the divorce. Call me on this.
