Kelly Ausley-Flores, Jeff Shore | September 16, 2021

Goranson Bain Ausley partners Kelly Ausley-Flores and Jeff Shore have achieved prestigious recognition in the 2022 edition of Best Lawyers in America®, Woodward and White Press. Kelly was named Lawyer of the Year, Collaborative Law: Family Law in Austin, and Jeff was named Lawyer of the Year, Family Law Mediation in Dallas/Fort Worth by The Best Lawyers in America®

Only a single lawyer in each practice area and designated metropolitan area is honored as the “Lawyer of the Year,” making this accolade particularly significant. Receiving this designation reflects the high level of respect a lawyer has earned among other leading lawyers in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, professionalism, and integrity.

Kelly is a well-known and respected family attorney in Austin who focuses on complicated property divisions, family businesses, spousal maintenance, and customized possession schedules. A creative problem-solver, Kelly is committed to helping individuals regain their voice and confidence so they can successfully move forward with their lives after divorce. Kelly was previously named Lawyer of the Year for Family Law in Austin in 2017 and 2012, and for Collaborative Law in 2014.

With a versatile skill set as an experienced litigator, mediator, and collaborative law attorney, Jeff manages the full range of family law issues. Time as a civil business litigator early in his career honed his technical skills and business acumen, and Jeff is adept at handling complex property cases involving partnerships, business valuation, and asset tracing. Jeff works with clients to make well-informed decisions that will serve them long term. Jeff has also been selected to the Texas Super Lawyers list in Family Law, published by Thomson Reuters, 2010 – 2020.

Since 2011, sixteen Goranson Bain Ausley family attorneys have earned the singular honor of Lawyer of the Year in Best Lawyers®. Having a roster of top talent like Kelly and Jeff, who are recognized for their outstanding representation by their peers, is a longstanding commitment of Goranson Bain Ausley.
