Austin attorneys Douglas Alexander and Amy Warr, both of Alexander Dubose &Townsend LLP, were recognized at a special celebration hosted by Texas RioGrande Legal Aid (TRLA) for their commitment to the landmark child custody battle that involved more than 400 children from the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints (FLDS).

The recognition comes after Alexander and Warr donated their time to helping TRLAwith the legal battle that went all the way to the Texas Supreme Court and ultimately resulted in the reunification of the children with their parents. The children were in state custody for nearly two months after an April 3 raid on their homes in Eldorado.

“Both Doug and Amy selflessly gave many sleepless nights to working with us to fight for these families,” said TRLA attorney Kevin Dietz. “This legal victory would not have been possible without their help.”

The celebration was attended by TRLA employees who worked on the FLDS litigation and Austin area legal aid staff. It was held thanks to the support of Parkside Restaurant and Brown McCarroll LLP. At the event both Alexander and Warr received special recognition for their support and commitment to finding justice for the FLDS families.

Added Dietz, “Their commitment to this case went above and beyond the call of duty. Both TRLA and these families owe them a great deal of thanks.”

  1. I was able to sit in on some of the late night, last minute phone calls between Doug and Amy, Alpine, Las Cruces, and the valley. Amy and Doug were diligent, prioritized the case, and did a great job.
