Zachary M. Kafoglis

Partner

Zach Kafoglis has always been drawn to helping others and mediating conflict, intervening from a very young age to protect others from injustice and assist them in resolving their differences. He became an attorney because it was clear a law career would give him the best opportunity to help people in crisis. Well respected by his peers, he has over 30 years of experience and has established a reputation of honesty and integrity while working with some of the most preeminent family law firms in the country. Mr. Kafoglis has also helped people throughout his legal career with criminal issues, serious personal injuries, estate issues and other matters. For the last 10 years he has practiced family law exclusively because he has seen the destructive nature of divorce on families and society, and knows there’s a better way. 

Mr. Kafoglis assists clients in all areas of family law including:

  • divorce, 
  • property division, 
  • custody/possession, 
  • child support, 
  • paternity, and 
  • the preparation of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. 

He represents clients from simple to the most complex family law disputes through Collaborative Law, mediation and litigation, depending upon what best serves the client.  

Mr. Kafoglis has been admitted to the Bar to practice law in Kentucky, Illinois and Texas. He is a member of the State Bar of Texas Family Law section and the Collin, Denton, and Dallas County Bar Associations. He has served as Co-Chairman for the Chicago Bar Association Domestic Law Sub-Committee on Collaborative Law; as a member of the Kentucky Bar Association Standing Committee on Diversity as well as the Task Force on Diversity; as a Fellow in the Collaborative Law Institute of Illinois; as Master Commissioner of the Circuit Court of Warren County, Kentucky; and is a Fellow in the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP). He is currently serving as treasurer for the Dallas Bar Association Collaborative Law section, and on the IACP Membership and Practice Group Committees.  Born in Abilene, he graduated from the University of Kentucky with a double major in History and Economics, and was admitted to the Phi Alpha Theta National History Honor Society. Mr. Kafoglis completed his legal education by obtaining his Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law. He started practicing in Bowling Green, Kentucky and raised his three children, eventually moving his practice to Chicago, Illinois. There he had the privilege of successfully representing high net worth clients with complex family law matters against some of the best family lawyers in the country through both contested litigation and mediation or Collaborative Law. He is excited to bring his experience back home to Texas and to join the team at Hargrave Family Law. 

He enjoys spending time with his wife, family and beloved pets. They all like to spend time outdoors and attending concerts and sporting events.  Mr. Kafoglis is also known for his community involvement and has served as the Chairman of his local United Way, Chairman of his Chamber of Commerce leadership training program, and Chairman of his church board.

Mr. Kafoglis joined the Hargrave Family Law team specifically because he sees the value of the firm’s collaborative and non-adversarial approach. “I believe it is critical to help as many people as possible walk through the crisis of divorce with compassion and integrity. Our entire team works together to provide our clients with the opportunity to take the next steps of their lives in a positive manner. I enjoy helping clients find their voice and grow in confidence as they build their new future, and I feel privileged to be able to do that every day.”
