Roderick D Marx Divorce Lawyer

Roderick D. Marx


“I always seek to find the most effective and most efficient solution for my client’s needs. Sometimes that requires using bulldog tactics, but sometimes that requires finessing their case through the system.”


Attorney Roderick Marx is uniquely qualified to handle all aspects of divorce and family law matters. Having represented over 10,000 clients during his career of over two decades, Roderick Marx is among the most prolific divorce attorneys in the state of Texas.

Divorce lawyer, Roderick Marx, received his law degree from the Western Michigan University Cooley School of Law in 1991. He has been serving the Dallas-Fort Worth community in private practice since 1992 when he opened his first law-office devoted solely to the area of divorce and family law.

Early in his career, he observed that many people were in need of legal help who earned too much income to qualify for legal aid, but who could not afford the large retainers that traditional law firms demanded. They were simply falling through a gap. Devoting his career to the needs of those falling into this gap, he has continually been seeking ways to provide family law legal services better, faster, and cheaper. As part of this endeavor, Roderick Marx was featured in the WFAA Channel-8 mini news series, “The Business of Divorce.” He has also been the invitee of a State Bar of Texas committee to participate in discussions about providing affordable quality legal care. As an early proponent of filing divorce documents with the courts by electronic means, he has been featured by the Dallas County District Clerk’s office as the “E-Filer of the Quarter.”

Richard D. Johnson

“With everything my clients have on the line in a divorce case, I believe they deserve a careful analysis looking at every angle of their case. Often I have found that the best approach for my client was not necessarily the most obvious one.”


Attorney Richard Johnson is a highly experienced divorce attorney who has been practicing law since 2001 and has been named as a “Rising Star” by the Texas Monthly Super Lawyers publication in 2006, and 2010 through 2014. This is an honor that less than 3% of attorneys receive.

Richard earned his Law Degree from Texas A&M School of Law, formerly Texas Wesleyan, where he excelled academically by earning a place on the Dean’s List and was an avid moot court competitor.

Richard has been with Marx, Altman, & Johnson since 2001, where he has exclusively devoted his legal career to divorce and family law. As a trial attorney, Richard takes pride in giving a voice to clients who need help battling powerful opponents. He has represented thousands of clients in cases ranging from simple divorces to extensive child custody and property litigation. Richard strives to give superior legal representation to his clients and fights hard to get them the best possible outcome for their case.
