Dana Christian Palmer, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of the Palmer Law Group, P.C., has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Lawyers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in family law, estate planning and probate.

Since 2006, Mr. Palmer has excelled as the founder and chief executive officer of the Palmer Law Group, P.C., in McKinney, Texas. Specializing his practice in family law, estate planning and probate, he is renowned for solving legal disputes in nontraditional ways as opposed to standardized approaches employed by other attorneys within the area. Mr. Palmer is recognized as being the developer of the trademark “Soft Divorce,” a philosophy through which he drives his practice and leverages as a distinguished legal professional. Through his unique methodologies, he arises to peaceful solutions to legal problems with the objective of not bringing the matter to court. However, when the courtroom is required for a legal procedure, Mr. Palmer believes in being fully prepared before the trial even begins.

Trademarking the phrase, “Divorce doesn’t have to be so hard!”, Mr. Palmer plans on launching the “Soft Divorce Network” and the “Healthy Estate Plan Network” to further educate emerging legal professionals who share Mr. Palmer’s same philosophies in law. Civically involved, he sat as a board member of Volunteer McKinney from 2018 to 2020 and was on the law firm practice management committee of the State Bar of Texas in 2019. Likewise, he is a lifetime member of the Texas Family Law Foundation and is an active member of the family law section of the Dallas Bar Association, the family law section of the State Bar of Texas, the Collin County Bar Association and the Frisco Bar Association.

To prepare for his lauded career, Mr. Palmer pursued a formal education at the University of Texas at Dallas, where he graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Science in economics and finance in 1996. He went on to receive a Doctor of Jurisprudence from Southern Methodist University in 2003. Admitted to practice law in the state of Texas, he has accrued numerous accolades throughout his career. Notably, he was named among the Top 10 Family Law Attorneys by Attorney Practice Magazine in 2019.

Mr. Palmer attributes his success to having a strong faith in God, listening to his clients and his affinity for serving others. He notes that humans are placed on earth to serve one another, and the rewards and benefits we receive are “thank you gifts” for making the world a better place.
