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.
