With a commitment to helping clients create custom-tailored solutions to their family law issues, Sharla Fuller has joined Kevin Fuller in establishing Fuller Mediations. Sharla brings more than 20 years of experience in resolving high-conflict and high-stakes cases through both litigation and mediation.
Sharla concentrates on conducting mediation sessions for busy, cost-conscious clients who want to resolve their matters quickly—often in a half-day mediation or a series of shorter meetings. Her straightforward manner and attention to detail help resolve cases efficiently. Skilled at suggesting creative solutions, Sharla facilitates settlements that most closely meet a family’s needs. Such agreements save time, money and emotions and also help preserve ongoing relationships and provide tools for resolving future problems by communication and negotiation. In Sharla’s experience, resolutions that truly work for all parties keep them from going back to court and maximize financial benefits and parents’ time with their children.
A mother herself who draws on insights from years of “mediating” family disputes, Sharla received her law degree from the University of Texas Law School. While there she received the Dean’s Achievement Award for the highest grade in Marital Property Rights and also served as an intern for the Supreme Court of Texas. Sharla began her legal career with the law firm of Wynne & Wynne in her hometown of Wills Point, Texas. In 2000, she joined KoonsFuller, P.C. and worked there until creating Fuller Mediations with her husband Kevin.
Sharla has been selected by her peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America in Family Law for 2014, 2015 and 2016. She was also selected as one of the Top 50 Female Super Lawyers in Texas by her peers (Thomson Reuters 2005) and has been listed as a Texas Super Lawyer (Thomson Reuters 2003-2007) featured in Texas Monthly magazine. Sharla has been Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization since 2001. She is also an author on family law topics, having teamed with Ike Vanden Eykel at KoonsFuller, P.C. to write the widely read book Lone Star Divorce published in 2008. Away from the office, Sharla led her sons’ Cub Scout program for three years and served as a mentor attorney for CitySquare’s legal aid center. Sharla also serves as a volunteer mediator for the Dallas County Dispute Resolution Center, where she was named Mediator of the Year in 2014.
