Tiffany Crouch Bartlett
In Central Texas, Tiffany has been practicing family law since 2004. She represents people facing divorce, child custody, modifications, enforcement, child support, adoption and other family-related issues.
Since 2007, Tiffany has been very active as a trial lawyer. During this time, she has represented dozens of parents and children involved in lengthy trials (both jury and bench) concerning child custody, in both private family and court-appointed cases in Travis, Williamson, Hays, Caldwell and other counties throughout Texas.
Tiffany also represents children and parents involved in CPS cases. Her passion for advocacy in high-conflict, high-stress situations involving children have led to her recent appointment in 2017 as the Chair of the State Bar Committee on Child Abuse and Neglect, and she recently served as a moderator and as the Course Director for the Child Abuse and Neglect Track at the State Bar Advanced Family Law Conference in San Antonio in August 2017. For the past 5 years, she has served as a panelist at Central Texas CLE (continuing legal education) events and CASA (court appointed special advocate) training seminars. Her advocacy seeks to ensure happiness and safety for children, most importantly.
Before she began practicing law, following her graduation in 1996 from The University of Texas Law School, Tiffany served as a screenwriting conference coordinator for the Austin Film Festival. While there, she received an offer to work in Hollywood at Touchstone Pictures/Walt Disney alongside Academy Award - winning screenwriter Eric Roth ("Forrest Gump," "The Insider," "Munich," "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," "The Horse Whisperer."). She spent several years working with Roth, including extensive research for the Oscar-nominated classic starring Russell Crowe and Al Pacino about the tobacco industry, "The Insider."
Shortly thereafter, she spent several years working with legendary actor/director Kevin Costner on the films "Open Range" and "3000 Miles to Graceland." During this time, she served as a story and research editor as well as a documentary filmmaker before returning to Austin. In 2004, the short documentary she produced and directed, "Blood Country: A Texas Shame," was showcased at the Alamo Drafthouse during the CinemaTexas Film Festival, as well as at the Artivist Film Festival in Los Angeles and the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival. This important short film is about horse slaughter and the Texas legislative attempts to make it illegal. Not long after, she was awarded a Fulbright scholarship in 2006 to study abroad in Europe. In 2007, she earned a Master's degree from the University of Cambridge in England.
