Recent Texas Family Law Statistics from the State Bar of Texas
Based on the State Bar of Texas Membership: Attorney Statistical Profile for 2021-2022, 5,920 or 6% of the total in-state attorneys focus on family law. This is the third largest group, with real estate and litigation taking the top two spots, respectively.
