­­­Attorney Jim Ashmore

Jim Ashmore is recognized as one of the more well-known, respected, and top-rated Texas attorneys in Denton County. Backed by an extensive legal career that spans nearly three decades, Jim is routinely sought out for his honesty, practical legal advice, compassion, and devotion to prioritizing solutions acceptable to both sides and providing the least disruption for a family. He is also the perfect advocate when a peaceful resolution is not an option, and a client needs someone to fight for the best possible outcome. His focus at Nelson Law Group will be family law, probate, and mediation. He is a credentialed mediator and a certified ad litem, which means he can represent people who cannot represent themselves.

Before practicing law, Jim spent a little more than a decade as a radio disc jockey. He also spent time in real estate. But Jim’s true calling was the law and the way he has handled his family law, mediation, and probate practice has resulted in him receiving honors and accolades in an industry where it’s important to stand out for the right reasons. He attended law school at the University of Tulsa College of Law and received his Juris Doctor in 1992. While at Tulsa, he was a Visiting Scholar at the Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law.
