Amy Castle Gray | Attorney
Amy Castle Gray is a seasoned lawyer with over twenty-five years of experience representing clients in and out of the courtroom. Her practice focuses on all areas of estate planning, probate, will contests, guardianships, trusts, divorce and child custody issues. Because of her experience and creativity, Amy’s clients request representation on solving legal issues that hit close to home.
In her career, Amy has worked in the Dallas offices of two of the largest law firms in their litigation practice and domestic relations groups. She has litigated regularly in both federal and state courts within Texas, as well as other states. She has represented clients in a variety of cases including family matters, probate issues and business-related disputes. Amy is comfortable in court.
This depth of practice in litigation is the foundation for Amy’s passion for empowering her clients to have solid plans to stay out of the courtroom. Helping her clients protect their assets and guard their family and children is her passion.
While sometimes litigation cannot- and should not- be avoided, Amy knows that in most cases, the best possible results come from early intervention and individualized planning in order to avoid the need for costly and stressful litigation.
Extensive litigation experience has also contributed to Amy's success as a mediator, as she thrives on helping parties resolve disputes early in the conflict. To complete her experience, in 2018, the City of Dallas appointed Amy to serve as an Associate Municipal Judge. She is proficient in Spanish, can understand French and appreciates all things Italian.
