In 1994, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas followed suit and approved him to practice law in its courtrooms. In addition to the nods of approval from the courts, the Texas Board of Legal Specialization also recognizes him as a Board-certified expert attorney in the area of family law.

    Since beginning his legal career, Mr. Gunnstaks has earned the respect of his peers and his clients. He is a regular guest speaker on family law topics and the recipient of a number of honors due to his outstanding legal abilities.
