People Say

  • My divorce was finalized in 2003, so I have had enough years to provide a long term review. Anne is someone who will not get caught up into the emotion of a divorce, as that can become long and costly. Her efforts are used strictly to get to the intended goal, not to waste time (and your money) to fight an unnecessary fight. In my case, the other counsel was much more interested in filing wasteful motions, writing unnecessary letters, etc...basically being a needless impediment in the process. Anne would not go down those rabbit holes, and she stayed above board and on point. In my case, I was in Kaufman County, and, as a father seeking rights to my children, the odds were astronomically against me. I hired Anne after the initial temporary orders had been submitted, and had to undo the mess that was done by my first attorney, and it was quite the mess. She handled it skillfully, tactfully, with great poise, and was ultimately successful. She never left me wondering if I was being fairly represented, as it was evident at each and every interaction. I could go on and on about Anne. She set the groundwork for a modification to the original orders 5 years later which ultimately had the children move in with me, and I was the primary custodial parent. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for. With Anne, you get the best.

  • Ms. Beletic represented me in a very difficult divorce, and did a very good job walking me through it. At each stage of the process, I felt like I had a good understanding of what we were doing and why. While she took the time to really work with me to put everything together, she also advised me on how to prepare for our sessions so that they were most effective. I really appreciated her ability to get to the heart of a matter quickly and ensure an accurate and strong line of questioning, and her compassionate explanation of difficult situations. I would definitely recommend her to anyone in need of her services.

  • Choosing a lawyer to work with on a sensitive matter such as divorce and family law is not easy. It's important that the partner you choose is deeply experienced, highly trustworthy and confidently articulates the way through the process and achieving the agreed results, and shares and supports your values. Anne fulfilled all these and as importantly, when needed, exerted the right level of "pressure" to get to the best possible outcome. I would highly recommend Anne, she is top notch, highly competent and a great partner to see you through the process.

  • I contacted Anne when I was in need of a protective order against my son's father. Not only did she help me every step of the way in getting that, she is helping me work out some other very complicated details related to a custody agreement in another state.

  • She took care of things that needed to have been done a long time ago. She is hard working and trustworthy! I could not be more pleased with everything Anne has done and is still doing.

  • I honestly don't know where I would be if it were not for her. In the end, I survived; Anne protected me and helped me keep what was most important to me, my daughter and part of my retirement.

About Anne Turner Beletic | Dallas Family Law Attorney

For Consultation and Representation:

As a board-certified family law attorney with over 25 years experience as a trial lawyer, counselor, Collaborative professional, and negotiator, I am passionate about my cases and professional life and enjoy solving problems for families, whether it be in a collaborative case, the court room, or a settlement conference. In that 25 years, I have learned that unless it's absolutely required, the only people who benefit from court are the lawyers. I recognize that for most families, the best outcome is often not obtained through the court system. I am known for my fierce advocacy, compassion, superior results, and "out-of-the-box" creative thinking. I specialize in complex property divorce cases including separate property tracing, reimbursement claims, fraud, waste and dissipation of assets, as well as sensitive issues concerning children (custody, modification seats, enforcement actions, contempt for violation of orders). I am interested in the unusual cases as well: nonparent custody disputes, domestic and gay partnerships, cases involving false sexual abuse allegations, and special needs children's issues. I have experience representing children as a court-appointed ad litem attorney and I am also a parent myself and bring both of those experiences to my work in cases involving children. I have been recognized by my peers as an expert in family law, selected as a fellow in the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, AV Preeminent, peer review rated by Martindale-Hubbell, and have been a frequent speaker and author to other lawyers and judges on family law issues.

Let's be frank, litigation is expensive and good experienced lawyers are expensive. My satisfied clients and other lawyers continue to refer cases to me because of my efficiency, my tenacity to get the job done, and because I don't have a lot of young associate lawyers I need to keep busy to pay the rent. If you hire me, you get me, which is not the case with many other boutique family law firms. If a team is needed for a very large or complex estate, I have other board certified lawyers I engage with to assist.  More lawyers do not equal better representation (from my experience in both settling cases and in litigating them). More lawyers just generate more fees.
