Clearly He's an expert at what he does. Just a great guy all around. Highly intelligent. He knows his stuff! This gentleman has a heart the size of Texas. He fought on behalf of our family for our children like he was a member. Very professional, just a pleasure and privilege to work with and even speak with. Very hard worker and a very caring individual.


Excellent Practice

Carlock & Gormley is a great practice! Jackie is an amazing lawyer and went above and beyond to help me and my daughter. I would recommend her to anyone. Everyone at this practice is very nice, helpful, and wonderful to work with. Highly recommended!!!


Top Notch

Jackie was fantastic. Finding a good and trustworthy divorce lawyer feels like finding a needle in a haystack. Jackie was very good. Responsive, listened. Felt like she worked in my best interest despite an unreasonable opposing counsel.


Amazing-gets to the point and gets to business

Jackie was amazing throughout the six month process. She walked me through the steps and helped me prepare in advance of every meeting. I appreciate her and her team as they made the process move as swiftly as possible and eased any tension or questions I had. Loved them!


The best In Dallas

David Carlock is one of Dallas's finest Lawyers. He helped me navigate through my child custody case and helped easy my anxiety and fears while doing a great job!!! He is the type of lawyer that isn't going to sugar coat anything and make you a bunch of false promises he can't fulfill. He is going to tell you how it is and what exactly you are facing but then he lets you know he is there to help you face it head on! Great Attorney and his office is amazing!! Thank you David For all of your great work!!

I want to bring attention to the Carlock-Gormley law firm. Blaise Gormley accomplished more in a few months for a few thousand dollars than my previous attorney, Smeidt, accomplished in over a year for over $25,000.00. Blaise Gormley was honest with me at every point. He accomplished what he said he could accomplish. He advised me as to gains vs cost. He was fair and accurate in his invoicing. He never once tried to keep my case going for his own financial gain. And he understood the personal vs the practical. Finally, it is done. Thank you Blaise.


BEST Attorney is DFW area

Posted by Cindy on June 15, 2014

You can tell David has an extensive experience with our legal system. He knows what to expect in court and how to best prepare his client for it. David does not sugar coat anything and is not afraid to fight for what is right. He is incredibly trustworthy attorney and I would recommend him to anyone!!


Happy client

Going through a difficult divorce is hard for anyone, especially senior citizens. David Carlock was recommended by his peers. I respect David Carlock and associates at Carlock Gormley. I felt he had my back at all times. David was compassionate, caring and concerned about my situation. Phone calls and e-mails were answered promptly. My late husband and David served on the Dallas Bar Grievance Committee in 1980. My late husband (he died in 1981) admired David Carlock. He felt David had a bright future ahead of him. He was right! After 10 years in a abusive marriage I wanted the best attorney possible to represent me. I don't have any regrets of having David Carlock as my attorney. I made the right decision.
