)-- Godwin Ronquillo PC, a nationally recognized Texas trial and appellate firm, with major offices in Dallas and Houston, is hosting an Open House at its new Plano office on October 30 from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. for attorneys and companies in Collin and Denton counties as well as North Dallas County.
Don Godwin attorney, Chairman and CEO of Godwin Ronquillo PC, stated that, “The goal of our new Plano office is to align our firm with clients in all areas north of Dallas that may be seeking legal counsel in Family Law, Divorce Litigation, Commercial, Healthcare, Banking, Public Law and other areas of litigation."
The new office is located near the intersection of the North Dallas Tollway and Sam Rayburn Tollway (Highway 121), in the Granite Park Two building, at 5700 Granite Parkway, Suite 450, Plano, Texas, and is currently open by appointment only, but is anticipated to have full time staff and attorneys in the coming months.
The Godwin Ronquillo Family Law section has already begun to utilize the new office to further enhance the Firm’s commitment to clients in Plano and the surrounding communities. The Family Law section is chaired by former Judge Marilea Lewis and includes Godwin Ronquillo Shareholders Don Godwin, Keeli L. Rule and Carmen Elaine Eiker, as well as Senior Attorney Lon Loveless and Associate Laci Myers.
Ms. Lewis noted the importance of the Plano Open House event to those in the Collin and Denton County area, saying, “What better way for us to make new friends than to invite them all over. We want local area attorneys and company owners to see how conveniently located we are, especially compared to driving to Downtown Dallas. ”
Carmen Elaine Eiker, Godwin Ronquillo's newest Family Law Shareholder, adds that “We are anxious to meet new people and businesses in the area and find out how we can best serve their litigation needs. With our new Plano office we will be seeing clients in a location that is much more accessible and sensitive to their schedules.” Ms. Eiker, who has been honored on D Magazine's list of Best Women Lawyers, is board-certified in both Family Law and Civil Trial Law.
