Ms. O’Neil received the designation as a Texas Family Law Specialist by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in 1997 and has maintained that certification since. A frequent presenter at family law attorney continuing education programs, Ms. O'Neil's first book, All About Texas Law and Kids, was published in 2009 by Texas Lawyer Books. One judge said of Ms. O’Neil, “She cannot be out-gunned, out-briefed or out-lawyered!”

Ashley Bowline Russell developed her passion for family law while serving as an attorney ad litem in cases involving abused children. She joined O’Neil Attorneys upon graduation from Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law and immediately began utilizing her background in psychology and creative writing to assist the firm’s family law clients in navigating through their Texas family law matters in the trial and appellate courts.
