about this business

In February 2019, the Boswell Law Firm was established to provide clients with the ultimate level of personalized focus and careful attention that each unique case deserves. Owned by Board Certified attorney Duana Boswell-Loechel, Boswell Law Firm’s office is conveniently located in the heart of the central business district in downtown Houston.

Duana wanted to do things a bit different than other law firms. At the Boswell Law Firm, we charge flat rates instead of hourly fees. This allows our clients to budget the legal costs so they are never surprised by an unexpected legal bill. Additionally, we develop an individualized plan for each case based upon the unique circumstances and needs of our clients. We not only help our clients with their legal needs, but we make sure each client has the tools needed to establish positive, successful lives following their court cases. We believe that the battle does not always end with a judgment, sometimes additional help is needed beyond the courtroom. We have partnered with other professionals that can help our clients in other aspects of their lives as needed.

PRACTICE AREAS
Divorces, including high net worth asset division, business valuations, retirement division, and military benefits.

Custody
Child Support

Additionally, Duana is an experienced mediator in civil, probate, family and CPS cases.

Boswell Law Firm handles matters in Harris, Galveston, Brazoria, Chambers and Fort Bend counties.

Duana Boswell-Loechel grew up in Moore, Oklahoma and moved to League City, Texas her junior year of high school where she attended and graduated from Clear Creek High School.

Duana earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Marine Biology and Marine Fisheries from Texas A&M University and a Bachelor of Arts in Humanities from University of Houston Clear Lake. After earning her BA, Duana took time off from school to start a family.

When her twin daughters were a year old, she entered South Texas College of Law Houston, where she earned her JD in 2004. She started her own firm in 2005 in Galveston County, where her solo-practice focused on Probate, Family Law and Criminal Defense.

After closing her solo firm in 2009 following Hurricane Ike, she worked for Lone Star Legal Aid until June 2017. She was the Litigation Director for family law and probate for Lone Star Legal Aid, and also represented clients in bankruptcy, Hague return matters, and appeals.

Duana received a resolution from the Texas State Bar for pro bono work following the devastation of Hurricane Ike in 2009, and in 2015 Duana obtained her board certification in Family Law, and in 2016 was voted one of Houstonia magazine’s top 100 lawyers.

Following many successful years at Lone Star Legal Aid, Duana then served as the Managing Attorney of the Houston/Clear Lake office for the Texas law firm Bailey & Galyen until December 2018. While at Bailey & Galyen, Duana predominantly focused on family law cases and practiced in all Brazoria, Galveston and Harris County Courts.

Tiered Pricing
We understand that sometimes a client just needs help or representation on only part of the case. Therefore, we offer tiered pricing. This means we charge a flat fee for each step of the case. For example, if someone only needs help with mediation, we can attend mediation and help them resolve their case for a flat fee. Expenses are additional, but discussed ahead of time.

Document Review
We understand that attorney representation is expensive and not everyone can afford to pay an attorney. Because divorce documents can be confusing and the process daunting, we are willing to help you get your documents in order so the Court will approve them. We will review your petitions and final orders for a nominal fee. We also offer lawyer coaching sessions to help you understand the process and walk you through presenting your own case to a Court.

Coaching
We offer coaching sessions to help navigate the legal and court systems. Packages are available for reasonable fees.

testimonials

  • “Absolutely Amazing”
    “I retained the services of this firm to represent me in my highly contested custody case. I was facing a very difficult uphill battle due to very poor previous representation. I was told by several other firms that they would not take my case because they do not like playing clean up after another attorney. After speaking with Ms. Boswell and explaining everything that had transpired, she confirmed that I definitely had a difficult fight on my hands but that she would be willing to fight with me. I am so grateful that I found her. She has done everything that she could to give me a fighting chance. And all of her hard work ultimately paid off in the end. Not only did we end up having a fighting chance, we actually won the case!!! She managed to accomplish what no one else even wanted to attempt. Her and her staff are absolutely amazing and I am eternally grateful!!!”

  • Great attorney, highly recommended!”
    “Duana handled an important matter for me. Precision and tact were of utmost importance. I had entrusted my case to someone else before and was not satisfied with their performance. Duana’s charges were fair, she explained the process clearly and I was able to obtain a quick resolution of my personal matter. I can only recommend her to anyone facing a legal issue.”
