Holmes Diggs DePlaza

Passion For Excellence

We are pleased to announce the return of Laurence A. DePlaza and Molly Veitch.  Both were members of the original team chosen by founder Robert E. Holmes Jr. when he created the firm in 1995.  Laurence and Molly are excited to continue the legacy and vision of Robert E. Holmes Jr. and his passion for excellence.

Holmes Diggs DePlaza, PLLC is one of the largest law firms in Texas devoted to the practice of family law. Our attorneys and their supporting staff offer a wealth of experience in all aspects of family law. Our clients come to us at an emotional and often traumatic time in their lives. We work patiently and closely with our clients to deal with their individual concerns and achieve a successful resolution of each case.

Our firm has successfully represented a spectrum of celebrity and high-profile individuals including professional football, baseball, and basketball players, best-selling authors and icons in local, state, and national business and industry. The firm is particularly capable of analyzing and protecting the complex and diversified portfolios and unique assets these individuals possess.

Our first step in delivering legal services is to establish reasonable and worthwhile objectives. We do not promise what cannot be delivered. After analyzing relevant data, we outline the client’s goals and recommend a plan designed to achieve them. The cost associated with the plan is discussed immediately and explained to the client. Our clients are advised promptly of all case developments and are encouraged to participate actively in every strategy decision. We deliver superior service in a cost-effective manner by delegating particular aspects of each case to the lawyer or legal assistant that is best able to handle the task at the lowest hourly rate.

After final settlement is reached, we carefully craft orders and closing documents to prevent the necessity for future clarification and litigation. We take great pride in the quality of our documents and how well they have served our clients. At the conclusion of a case, our clients are ready to prosper in their new lives.
