Attorney Profile

C. "Luke" Gunnstaks founded his law firm, Gunnstaks Law Office, with the goal of providing high-quality family law services to the residents of Dallas, Plano, Frisco and Collins County, Texas. Since his firm's doors first opened in 1991, Mr. Gunnstaks has provided his clients with legal services tailored to fit their individual needs. His dedication and personalized service are only two of the reasons why area residents continue to turn to him for assistance with high-conflict custody cases and high-asset, contentious divorces.

Mr. Gunnstaks began practicing law in 1991 after earning his Juris Doctor from Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law and his admission to the State Bar of Texas. 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 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. He holds a "Superb" Avvo rating, and he is a member of the Texas Bar College, which is an honorary society limited to the most highly trained attorneys in the state.

Attorney Gunnstaks is not only a highly regarded attorney but also a valued member of the legal community. He is a member of the American Bar Association, the Dallas Bar Association and the American Association for Justice.
