The family and commercial law firm relies on diversity and teamwork to help clients find successful outcomes.
In 2012, Leslie Bollier and Tony Ciccone founded Bollier Ciccone LLP, a boutique family and commercial law firm based in Austin, Texas. Their unique partnership, combining family law and commercial law expertise, has proven to be a successful model, providing clients with outstanding legal services and compassionate support.
A Passion for Helping Families
Leslie Bollier, who is Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, is dedicated to helping families navigate the challenges of divorce, modification, and custody. Her commitment to guiding clients to stability is evident in her approach to families in crisis. “I like helping families get their lives back,” Bollier says. “If someone says, ‘I’m going to take your child from you,’ or, ‘I’m going to take all the money from you,’ it really puts them in a vulnerable position. By the end of the case, when they step into their empowerment, get their life back, and are now looking at everything in a different way—that’s what makes it all worth it to me.”
Protecting Rights in Commercial Law
Tony Ciccone, Board Certified in Construction Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, leads the commercial side of the firm, handling business litigation, construction, real estate, and business law matters. Passionate about the law, Ciccone frequently assists clients with construction matters involving contractors and property owners. As one recent client says of Ciccone: “He is professional, direct, and tactful; however, he makes a solid, valid point with every response that leaves the opposition with no possible rebuttal.”
A Cohesive and Diverse Team
The unique combination of legal practices, compassionate core values, and a down-to-earth approach with their clients make Bollier Ciccone LLP a strong and connected unit. Leslie and Tony have worked hard to create a solid, supportive, and inclusive foundation within their firm and a cohesive working relationship with their team of professionals.
“A lot of people wondered why I partnered with someone with such a different focus,” says Bollier, explaining the logic behind their partnership. “It was really about Tony’s expertise and personality. I found a partner who is committed to diversity both by gender and race and a partner who is committed to professionalism and client services.”
The firm recently added a third partner, Susannah Stinson, a well-respected family lawyer who is also Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, to their team. “There’s been a lot of client crossover between us all, which has been fantastic because we work so well together,” Bollier says. “Not only are we engaged in Bar and community activities, and we are board certified in our specific areas, but we are also all very personally close.”
Bollier emphasizes the importance of teamwork and growth within the firm. “We have a team approach here, and while we recruit in a manner that attracts talented people, we also give them the ability to grow with the firm and advance their career paths. This is incredibly important to us,” she says.
A Reputation for Excellence
Bollier Ciccone LLP has maintained a reputation for being trustworthy and approachable, addressing issues clients may not have considered while reaching an ideal solution. Creating a diverse environment has helped them to bring together the best positions, perspectives, and abilities. “We purposefully created a diverse environment to create the best team. The more ideas, perspectives, and talents that people bring to the table, the better. That only enhances our practice,” Bollier says. “I am proud of the team we’ve developed.”
