Fort Worth Family Lawyers


Divorce, custody battles, and property division can be some of the toughest times a person goes through. As if the emotions weren’t enough, going through the court system – even in an amicable divorce – can be difficult. Children, property, out-of-state and international relocation are just a few examples of how the dissolution of marriage can quickly become more complicated.

For over three decades, Steve Bankhead has faced challenges head-on, in and out of family courts in Texas. Today, his daughter Deborah Bankhead follows in his footsteps and the two make a formidable team. The attorneys at Varghese Summersett Law Group focus on seeking the best possible outcomes for their clients. They have a client-first approach begins with getting to know their clients during a free consultation.

There is an old adage that a divorce can be as expensive as you want to make it, and there is some truth to that. This is why understanding a client’s goals is so important. Some marriages can be brought to an end amicably and the goal is to do so as efficiently as possible. In other instances, both parties are at odds, and it is a take-no-prisoners, scorch-the-earth battle that you are preparing for. Fortunately, the attorneys at VS Law Group have experience handling both extremes and everything in between. There is no one-size-fits-all solution for family court, and the firm’s attorneys have proven their results in and outside of the courtroom.

VS Law Group is a full-service family law firm. The firm’s practice areas include Divorce, Property Division, Child Custody, and Adoptions. The attorneys are relentless litigators with a breadth of experience in family courts. The firm is known for the following:


Deborah Bankhead and Steve Bankhead are experienced trial attorneys. While most cases do not go to trial, having significant trial experience sends a message to opposing counsel: We’ve taken cases all the way to trial, and our result speak for themselves. Even for cases where agreements are reached, the willingness to walk into a courtroom and advocate effectively for clients goes a long way.

Client Connection

Guidance, Not Pressure

The firm’s attorneys are here to guide you through your decisions, but we recognize the decisions are yours to make. If you realize during our consultation that counseling and reconciliation might be what’s best for you, and that’s happened, we won’t steer you towards a divorce. We want an open and honest dialogue with you, and if it turns out we can help you through the family courts, we will do so with the best of our talents.

Mediation is sometimes a cost-effective solution to divorce, custody, and child support. Many family courts require mediation (or at least an attempt at mediation) before a court-ordered resolution. Our attorneys are adept at protecting their client’s interests aggressively and with integrity both through the mediation process and through litigation, should that become necessary.

Going through a divorce is a major undertaking and we know you will have questions about the legal and financial implications of your decisions. We are here to walk you through those. The implications can become exponentially more complex if there are significant assets to protect. We are experienced at doing just that. These are areas of law that can be intimidating, even for attorneys who are inexperienced, because making a mistake can be devastating. Asset division in high net worth divorces requires the experience and resources to seek specialized discovery and utilize trained experts. We are experienced in handling the division of business interests, real estate, stock options, and trust. We are also experienced in drafting Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDROs) to divide funds at a future date.

Valuing businesses and investments takes a command of the law and financial acumen. We have both. You do not have to, and should not, face the challenges in family court alone. Put our experience to work for you.
