Marcela Halmagean
M Halmagean PLLC
Attorney at Law

Marcela Halmagean is distinguished as one of the most aggressive attorneys in Houston. “I’m innovative, creative, daring, and I do my homework,” she says. Her success is attributed to her long term professional relationship with Stephanie Clarke Davis, of Counsel, as well as her close client communication, full availability, and aggressive representation.

Her practice is focused on family, business, and commercial litigation. She is committed to bringing high-quality legal services to each sector. During her professional tenure, Halmagean worked for large corporations representing corporate entities in legal matters including white-collar crime cases, breach of contract, and partnership disputes. However, her passion lies with family law cases, especially representing fathers in custody modifications and divisions of complex estates. For example, Halmagean tried and won jury trials where she successfully represented fathers in their pursuit for modification of custody. In one case, her client was awarded sole managing conservatorship of his child; in the other, the father won custody of his three children.

Halmagean has practiced law for 19 years during which she has built a bond with each and every one of her clients. “I work with them directly as opposed to assigning them to an associate attorney or a legal assistant,” she says. “Especially in family law, clients need a whole lot of emotional support and a periodic reality check to complement the legal advice they’re paying for. When you combine that with full access and availability, it makes for long-lasting relationships.”
