Margaret Jones Hagelman


Margaret Jones Hagelman has been practicing law since 1999. Margaret grew up in Laredo, Texas, the largest inland port of entry into the United States. Prior to Law School, Margaret was president of a large department store for over 10 years. This background made International Trade Compliance Law a natural fit for Margaret. She practiced cross border transactional and compliance law in large San Antonio law firms until her children were grown and raised, at which point Margaret was free to follow her true calling, helping individuals navigate the often-rough waters of family law matters.

Opening her own firm after retiring from big law, Margaret was able to realize her dream of serving individuals going through their most difficult periods. Having gone through a divorce herself, Margaret knew exactly what she sought to bring to the families she serves: patience; compassion; understanding; and the belief that, with persistence and faith, there is a healthy outcome on the other side of the family law matter.

Margaret is particularly excited to practice at Hembree Bell Law Firm, where she collaborates with a multi-faceted team of talented professionals who share the same goal – providing sound, compassionate care to families throughout Central and South Texas. A native Spanish-speaker, Margaret is particularly pleased to assist Spanish-speaking families.

Especially in today’s skeptical world, Margaret feels it’s important to approach her law practice with her deep belief that for everyone, a happy ending is possible. This belief informs all Margaret undertakes and is due to her marriage of 10 years to her second husband, Ron, and her three children and three grandsons.
