Managing partner of Verner Brumley Mueller Parker PC, Jim Mueller is well-versed in a wide range of family law issues, including complex divorce cases, high-asset property division, and contentious custody battles. He is often described by clients as having the precise blend of what everyone needs in a family lawyer—genuine compassion and understanding combined with a tenacious, unrelenting pursuit to protect his clients’ best interests.
Mueller and his team provide effective, results-oriented representation in contested and uncontested divorce, divorce mediation, and arbitration. The aim is to resolve all issues efficiently and effectively, allowing clients to preserve their emotional and financial well-being. Mueller understands that, for many, this is their first encounter with the court, and it can often feel like an overwhelming and trying time. He assists his clients in navigating the sometimes complex and confusing pathways of the court system to a brighter, and more uplifting result. Mueller approaches each divorce case with the goal of helping clients divide their assets without unnecessarily dividing the family, especially where the interests of children are concerned. Mueller’s methodology is that, while a marriage may end, parenthood never does. Finding a healthy and balanced way for both the mother and the father to remain in the child’s life is paramount when approaching any divorce case involving children. His work as court appointed amicus attorney displays his genuine drive to work toward the greatest outcome for the children throughout the court process.
With a state-wide practice, Mueller prides himself on his ability to handle complex matters no matter the jurisdiction. Mueller is Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization and has been inducted into the prestigious American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and International Academy of Family Lawyers. He authored the book, “Divorce in Texas: The Legal Process, Your Rights, and What to Expect.” He regularly is asked to speak to family lawyers around the country and serves on the board for the Texas Academy of Family Law Specialists, the Texas Family Law Council, the Committee for Qualified Judiciary, as well as the executive committees for the Texas Chapter and National American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.
