Full Biography

Douglas R. York is a native Houstonian who graduated from Spring Woods High School. He was always interested in law enforcement and earned a degree in Criminal Justice from Sam Houston State University while working part-time as a jailer with the Walker County Sheriff’s Department. For 18 years after graduation he served as a police officer, first with the Huntsville, TX, Police Department and then with the Houston Police Department.

As a policeman, Mr. York found himself all too often dealing with family disputes. He also testified frequently in court and observed the workings of the judicial system first-hand. He decided he could better serve his community as a lawyer, earned his law degree from South Texas College of Law, and began his second career as a family lawyer 17 years ago.

Mr. York's experience as a police officer encourages him to represent his clients with passionate commitment. He also welcomes the opportunity to help his clients, provide support, and ease their way forward during what is, for many, one of the most intense crises of their lives.

Kicks ass. I fired two lawyers before finding Mr York. My divorce was dragging along by my ex's lawyer who I felt was churning the case. Those lawyers just didn't seem to give a damn. After about 9-10 months of going nowhere, this guy came in with guns blazing, fixed a grievous omission committed by...
