Elisa Maloff Reiter is licensed to practice in multiple jurisdictions (Texas, New York, the District of Columbia and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts). A seasoned litigator, she has focused on family law cases for the majority of her practice. Her background in general litigation spawned a passion for family law, where she has used her skills to attempt to preserve estates, and the most precious asset of all: children.
Hanging out her own shingle in January, 1990, she has built a reputation based on offering personal service, pulling in a network of colleagues as needed to facilitate cost effective representation. While she is a solo practitioner, her network is based on more than thirty years’ experience in the Metroplex, building relationships that offer the client added value: as needed, she associates some of the strongest colleagues in the area in forensic accounting, psychology, private investigation, estate planning, intellectual property and tax matters.

Mrs. Reiter is a member of the State Barof Texas, the Dallas Bar Association and the American Bar Association, as well as of the Family Law Sections of each of these organizations. She is a Fellow of the State Bar College.
Mrs. Reiter is not only a certified mediator and collaborative lawyer, she taught mediation and family law in Southern Methodist University’s Dispute Resolution Program, and its predecessor, the SMU Continuing Education Program. In those venues, she helped educate hundreds of individuals seeking accreditation in mediation, be they lawyers, mental health professionals, law enforcement professionals, human resource managers, and/or those simply seeking ways to help manage relationships and bridge impasses in times of crises.
Mrs. Reiter received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Political Science (with Departmental Distinction) and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English, both cum laude, from Southern Methodist University (SMU) in 1980. She graduated from SMU with her undergraduate degrees at the age of 19. She graduated from SMU Law at the age of 22.
