Moving Foward, With Integrity and Respect

Kelly Caperton Fischer on doing what’s best for clients:

I excel at finding creative and respectful solutions to family law matters, including property and child-related issues. Understanding that each family is unique and has different end goals, I use “collaborative law” as a critical foundation to help clients put settlement at the forefront, negotiate more openly and truly focus on what is best for their family. This results in them making smart long-term decisions, including effective co-parenting plans, customized possession schedules and creative property settlements.

Here’s how:

  • Collaborate with clients to help them make holistically wise decisions for their families.
  • Counsel clients on the importance of being mindful of their behavior and actions towards each other, so they can be healthy co-parents and achieve long-lasting and productive results.
  • Bring a sense of calm and level-headedness to very difficult and sensitive situations, whether the matter is complex and contentious or simple and agreed.
  • Usher clients toward an amicable and reasonable solution in a respectful manner through thorough preparation and sound advice.

Professional Credentials

Kelly is active with the Texas Family Law Foundation, the Family Law Section of the Austin Bar Association, and the Volunteer Legal Services. With GoransonBain Ausley since 2006, she was named a Texas Super Lawyers Rising Star from 2009 – 2012, 2018 and 2019. As a native Texan raised in Austin, Kelly attended undergrad at Texas A&M University and received her law degree from the University of Texas School of Law.


When not helping clients navigate family law issues, I enjoy reading, listening to podcasts, hiking, and spending time with my husband and son.
