Ms. Crozier understands that every family law matter is different, and there is not a one-size-fits-all solution to every case.  She is known for her creativity and legal expertise regarding complex family issues, such as custom custody plans, addiction, mental illness, asset valuation, characterization of property, executive compensation, and prenuptial agreements. She enjoys working with a diverse group of clients, including executives with complex compensation structures, teachers, medical professionals, LGBTQ families, business owners, and other professionals and their spouses.  Ms. Crozier guides her clients through their personal family law case by listening to the client’s goals and developing a customized approach that serves the best interests for the client and their family.

Ms. Crozier is well-respected in the legal community.   Ms. Crozier has been recognized as one of the best lawyers in America by Best Lawyers in 2021, 2022, and 2023.  She also was named as a Rising Star in the field of Family Law by Super Lawyers Magazine in 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023.  Rising Stars represent the top 2.5% of attorneys under 40, or practicing ten years or less.  Texas Monthly named Ms. Crozier as one of the Top Women Attorneys in Texas in 2020 and 2021.  The Denton County Bar Association recognized her as the Mediator Rookie of the Year in 2017.

Ms. Crozier was an instrumental part of the legal team that represented the father in the landmark Texas Supreme Court case that garnered national attention (In re C.J.C., No 19-0694).  In June 2020, the Texas Supreme Court ruled 9-0 in favor of the father’s position, rendering an opinion that to date is the most significant parental rights opinion in Texas history.

Ms. Crozier is a firm believer in alternative dispute resolution for family law matters.  Depending on the client’s goals, she is an advocate for participation in mediation or Collaborative Divorce.  She believes that both of these processes, as alternatives to traditional litigation, provide the client with the benefits of privacy of additional time to negotiate to reach a custom agreement that is specially designed for their family.  In addition to representing clients during mediations, Ms. Crozier is also a highly skilled and experienced mediator who has mediated over 350 cases in her career.

Henderson Inn of Court.
