Fighting For Our Clients To Get The Property And Parenting Time They Deserve

About Our Firm

Our firm is headed by C. “Luke” GUNNSTAKS, a Plano area lawyer in practice since 1991. Before that, he was in a popular Texas show band, but decided to become a lawyer after a custody battle revealed how hard it is to find an attorney who will properly advocate for clients and their children.

The attorneys at GUNNSTAKS LAW OFFICE have built strong reputations as experienced, knowledgeable and effective family law attorneys. As family law practitioners board-certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, attorney GUNNSTAKS and “of counsel” attorney Cynthia Clack are considered specialists in their fields.

Attorney GUNNSTAKS has been selected for inclusion in Texas Super Lawyers for Family Law for 10 years.

When clients come to GUNNSTAKS LAW OFFICE, they know they are getting aggressive, dedicated legal professionals. C. “Luke” GUNNSTAKS welcomes high-conflict cases. Under his direction our firm has helped clients successfully appeal their family law cases all the way up to the Texas Supreme Court.

As a former musician, Mr. GUNNSTAKS is also intimately familiar with the pitfalls awaiting today’s new and upcoming entertainers. By helping them avoid common entertainment industry missteps, our firm protects performers’ artistic and financial interests.

Dedicated Staff

Our staff includes experienced paralegals and support personnel, all of whom are sensitive to the diverse needs of clients. Former clients have also worked in our firm to uphold the principles of justice for others as we did for them.

Family Law And Entertainment Practice

GUNNSTAKS LAW OFFICE represents family law and entertainment law clients. The firm is known for taking and winning cases refused by other lawyers in the region, including those cases involving parental alienation, paternity, domestic violence and termination of parental rights. We also handle a wide range of entertainment law cases, reflecting our principal lawyer’s background in the music business.


Our firm is dedicated to protecting the legitimate interests of clients and their children. We are deeply involved with our clients and expect the same level of commitment from them. We take cases as far as necessary, and have won landmark decisions before the Texas Supreme Court in matters related to attorney’s fees, property division and child support.


We represent men and women, many of whom are involved in disputes over assets and property, child custody and termination of parental rights. Many of our clients come to us through referrals from other clients. A number of clients are repeat customers — they come to us because they were pleased with our help during their first divorce and now have a new legal issue. Other clients include musicians, songwriters, comedians, actors and others in the entertainment business.
