Client Testimonials

  • When I first arrived at Sisemore Law Firm, I was very frightened and still feeling stunned that my husband of 25 years had announced that he was leaving me. I had no idea what to do or how to do it. I had reached out to a friend who gave me the phone number to Sisemore Law Firm. From the second I walked in, I was greeted warmly and made to feel safe. Justin met with me and made sure he understood my situation. Pam Wilder handled my case and kept me informed every step of the way. Never be fooled by her size. Big things come in small packages, and this was apparent in court. The opposing counsel had no idea what he was in for. Pam made sure that I felt as though I had been “heard” on every issue. She represented me better than anyone on earth could possibly have done. Her attention to detail is commendable, and so is her manner when she was speaking to me. She had a big job to do, but also had to be sensitive to my feelings as I was working through traumatic issues. Renee was also an invaluable member of our team. Renee was the person I would talk to first. She was always very reassuring and made sure all my many questions were answered. I am very thankful that my friend referred me to the Sisemore Law Firm.

    "Best advocate for you and your family’s future."
  • Ms. Wilder had represented me before when with a different firm several years ago. I was so impressed with her professionalism (then) that I contacted her when I needed representation again. She is always prepared, kept me informed, she’s a valued member of your firm. I can’t possibly say enough great things about her, or how she helped me when I needed it. I’m beyond thankful for her efforts.

  • I’d just like to say thanks so much to Pam (and Justin) at the Sisemore Law Firm for the help, guidance and representation they provided throughout my divorce case and hearings.

    Suffering through a divorce is a difficult and trying time in one’s life and having competent attorneys who will fight for truth, justice and your rights can make all the difference.

    I would certainly recommend their law firm to anyone who finds they need divorce or family law representation. Many thanks and best wishes, Brian

Seasoned, methodical, unwavering

From the smallest detail to the big picture, when Tarrant County family law attorney Pamela Wilder handles your divorce or child custody case, she’s 100 percent invested in you. Known as an attorney who has her client’s best interests at heart, Pam stands firm through tense negotiations and fierce court battles. The seasoned legal veteran’s empathetic nature and attention to detail put her clients at ease.

According to Justin Sisemore, founder of the Sisemore Law Firm, “With Pam as your attorney, you get the best of both worlds. She is a ‘devil-is-in-the-details’ person behind the scenes but also a strategic, no-nonsense lawyer and skilled negotiator who fights hard for her clients every step of the way. Pam really pushes the envelope and is often praised by clients for exceeding their settlement and custody expectations.”

A respected Texas attorney since 2006—and since 2016 a family law attorney in Fort Worth at the Sisemore Law Firm—this divorced mom understands what her clients are going through.

Growing up, Pam’s “legal education” began over the dinner table during conversations with her attorney father. After graduating from UCLA with a BA in psychology, Pam was accepted into the University of San Diego School of Law, where she earned her juris doctor degree in 1992. While Pam initially planned to become a criminal prosecutor, her husband’s transfer to Oklahoma led to legal work for a personal injury firm and a large collection agency.

After another transfer to Texas, Pam stepped away from the law for 10 years to raise her two beautiful daughters. With her girls in school full-time and her marriage ending in divorce, Pam decided it was time to reignite her career and passed the Texas Bar in 2006 on her first attempt. She joined the Sisemore Law Firm in 2016 after a brief stint as a paralegal and several years practicing family law with other Texas law firms.

Today, the former aspiring criminal prosecutor and divorced mom enjoys helping people navigate the complexities of divorce and custody disputes. As Pam explains, “I have experienced divorce and child custody modifications personally and understand the emotions involved and the significance of the results. Going through a divorce is stressful, and having gone through it myself, I’m honored to help other people make it through that transition.”

Staying fit and spending time in the great outdoors provide the perfect counterbalance to a busy career

Working in a career where families’ futures hang in the balance can be stressful but Pam’s passion for fitness and the outdoors keeps her psyche in check. With her daughters officially out of the nest, Pam gets up early every morning to work out at the gym, where she loves lifting weights. She is also engaged to be married to a dad of two teenagers, whom the couple enjoys spending time with on weekends.
