A Commitment to Marshall County Family Law

Updated: Dec 20, 2022

Foxtrot Family Law has Marshall County Family Law in its DNA. The firm was founded in Guntersville on March 1, 2015, and, since that first year, its business has grown by over 2,100%. That’s 21x. Foxtrot’s team has grown from 1 lawyer and a part-time assistant to 4 lawyers and 7 dedicated, full-time staff. They say they did that by doing one thing.

Helping parents and relatives stand up for themselves in Family Law cases, whether Child Custody, Divorce, DHR Defense, or Adoption. “Yeah, we kinda pigeon-holed ourselves with that name,” laughs managing partner, Stephen Williams. “I’m glad it’s working out.”

Joshua Holcomb, a junior partner with the firm and lead trial counsel in the Guntersville office, also has Marshall County roots. He was born and raised in Boaz, graduating from Boaz High School.

Cassie Hayes, senior paralegal in the Guntersville office, graduated from Arab High School.

“The law is the same everywhere, but there’s a presentation aspect, an intuition, that develops when you’re a member of this community and in front of the same family law judges, day in and day out. We’re glad we have Josh leading our Guntersville office and serving our clients throughout Marshall County,” says Williams.

“We aren’t afraid to go into any courtroom in any county in this state and stand up for our clients and their families, but as the saying goes ‘there is no place like home,’ and we are certainly at home in Marshall county,” adds Holcomb.

“At the same time,” he says, “the perspective we get from having other lawyers in other offices helps us blend the best of both worlds. We have a big footprint across North Alabama and a broad array of resources with the way our team and infrastructure have grown, but when it’s game time and our clients set foot in that courtroom in Albertville, they can know they’re doing it with a professional who has walked in there hundreds, if not thousands, of times before.”

That doesn’t present an unfair advantage for Foxtrot. “We never expect Judge Mastin or Judge Ross to knowingly put a child in harm’s way or divide a marital estate or retirement funds inequitably,” says Williams. “It’s just effective communication, like with anyone. The more you have communicated with someone, the more efficiently you can do so, the clearer you can present your client’s message to the Court…”

“…and in the complex world of Child Custody, Divorce, DHR Defense, and contested Adoptions, a little more clarity can go a long way. We’re glad we can do that for our community here in Marshall County.”
