    Attorney Profile

    Certified as a specialist in family law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, Anita K. Cutrer focuses her practice exclusively on that area of the law. A partner at Cutrer + Wanger, she represents clients throughout Tarrant County from the firm's office in Bedford, Texas. Ms. Cutrer has been admitted to practice before all Texas state courts since 1993.

    Ms. Cutrer's family law client base is predominantly made up of people who are facing the end of their marriages and who are thus having to deal with such divorce-related issues as the division of assets and debts, child custody and visitation, and spousal and child support. Her extensive experience in mediation and collaborative law allows her to help many of her clients come to an accord on these matters through the use of those methods of alternative dispute resolution, but she is a forceful courtroom advocate on their behalf when litigation becomes necessary. Other family law matters that Ms. Cutrer has handled have included adoptions as well as paternity disputes and establishment, and she also helps clients whose marriages have previously been dissolved and who are now seeking modifications to or the enforcement of existing support and parenting orders. Her successful track record along with her high degree of ethics have earned her a Distinguished* peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell.

    As an undergraduate, Ms. Cutrer attended the University of Houston and received a Bachelor of Business Administration in 1988. She subsequently went on to pursue her legal education at South Texas College of Law Houston and was awarded her Juris Doctor in 1993. She stays abreast of current family law developments through her memberships in professional organizations.

    *AV®, AV Preeminent®, Martindale-Hubbell Distinguished and Martindale-Hubbell Notable are certification marks used under license in accordance with the Martindale-Hubbell certification procedures, standards and policies.
