When I tell you BEST LAWYER in Houston... My divorce when smooth as pie ? She was the first person that wanted to help out the LGBT community ..She didn’t look down on me at all. She’s helpful, she’s very professional, sweet ,VERY friendly, and cost was VERY budget friendly.….

I filed for divorce from my (now ex) wife after I deployed overseas and with very limited resources. I was able to do everything via Skype, email and phone calls thanks to Jerri. She is amazing! She was very understanding of my situation and genuinely wanted to help. The entire process was explained to me and Jerri was extremely quick to respond. She always made herself available for me, regardless of the time difference. I felt like I had a partner that was not going to let me get steamrolled. She treated me like a client not another number. Jerri was professional, tactful but aggressive with my ex's counsel. I got everything that I wanted out of it and walked away the happiest man this side of the Mason Dixon Line. Her rates are very reasonable for the high quality product that you will receive. It saddens me a little that I no longer have a need to correspond with Ms. Hardaway. However, if I ever need an attorney in the future, I will contact Jerri in a heartbeat!

Getting a divorce is like a death. It's one of the hardest things you can go through. Mr. Linnenbank makes you wonder why people hate lawyers. In addition to his fees being extremely reasonable, he actually made me feel like he cared about me. At this extremely vulnerable and terrifying crossroad, it was such a comfort and solace to feel that someone had my back and was protecting me and making sure my son and I were treated fairly. You see, he helped my divorce feel more like a new birth then a death. His staff is just as kind as he is and I always felt comfortable when I was there. I never wanted to leave because I felt like I was with friends. Having him represent me was a truly wonderful experience.

Scott Boates is a wonderful custody lawyer. He helped me get my children back and won every big issue against lawyers my ex husband paid a LOT more for! He always returned my emails and got me ready to testify to the judge. His paralegal was always on top of the case and very nice to work with. Scott and his staff obviously care about clients and not just their fees!

I hired Stefanie for my divorce. I have an infant baby and I was looking at reaching an agreement that will allow me and my ex to be in good terms for the benefit of the baby. Throughout the process she not only did an excellent job at keeping me informed but she also cooperated and worked with me to get an agreement that will work for me and my husband. While the other lawyer just tried to stall the process, she was always extremely helpful. She is very knowledgeable and respectful. I had worked with other lawyers in the past who not only ignored me but charged me a lot of money for no work. I will recommend Stefanie to anyone with my eyes closed. Best lawyer!!!

About

STRATEGICALLY CREATIVE AND COMPASSIONATE I first came to Brian back in 2001. My two school aged daughters and I had fled from their biological father in another state. I had gotten a fast divorce prior to leaving that state, but there were many things that needed clarification. The first order of business was to obtain Protective Orders. Brian and his brilliant staff took immediate control. They secured Protective Orders which was hard to do given the fact that my ex-husband needed to be served in Texas. He didn't live in Texas. Still, through creativity and coordination by Brian and his staff, Protective Orders were secured. Next came cleaning up my swift divorce obtained in the state from which my children and I previously resided.. Getting the divorce moved to Texas presented another challenge and until that happened, nothing could be done to change anything about it. Not only was most of it ambiguous, but it was detrimental to my children. Again, through careful coordination, Brian and his staff got the divorce moved to Texas and then made changes which further reinforced our safety and security. I soon married a loving man who became a fabulous father to our daughters. Shortly following that, we had another baby girl. Thus making us a happy, busy, and complete family. There have been years of laughter and love. FAST FORWARD 12 YEARS In May of 2013, tragedy struck our idyllic life. Our eldest daughters had just returned home from their respective colleges when my beloved husband suffered a fatal heart attack right before our very eyes. It was fast, sudden and devastatingly shocking to us and everyone who knew him. He was a healthy middle aged man with no prior diagnosis relating to heart disease. His friends and colleagues are still very sad. Our daughters and I are still grieving. He was an amazing man. Our daughters who were ages 22, 21, and 11 lost their Daddy. As if that wasn't enough for us to bear, another problem resurfaced. My husband's former wife from many years ago, with whom he had no children showed up the night before his funeral with a lawyer and her divorce decree. Up until that evening, this lady was a stranger to us. We were aware of her existence, but had never before met her. This lady was making claims to survivor benefits. She had even called my husband's employer, falsely insisting that she possessed Court documentation which entitled her to his benefits. This stirred up much confusion and trouble. It was time to call Brian again. We had probate attorneys handling the estate. Still, costly delays and difficulties were created due to the assertions made by my husband's former wife. One of her claims, in particular, was to one of our 401k Savings Plans. This lady asserted that she had a QDRO awarding her a portion of his retirement. In fact, she did not. Under the Texas Family Law Code, she had two years following the finalization of their divorce to not only obtain a QDRO, but to submit it for approval and her award. This was never done. At first, most legal professionals thought she was out of luck. Cased closed, right? Wrong. Up until recently before my husband's tragic passing, Federal Law, ERISA, prohibited a QDRO from being drawn up, much less submitted after the Plan Participant dies. However, this law had changed so recently that it wasn't yet in the books of the Texas Family Code OR even yet written into the 401K Plan guidelines from my husband's employer. The law NOW permitted a QDRO to be drafted, signed by a judge, and submitted to an employer's 401k Plan Administrator for approval OR rejection. Given those circumstances, my probate attorneys were advising me to just settle without trying to fight it. Brian and his now partner Jake Gilbreath said, "Not so fast." They spent some time researching, discussing and preparing our argument to 1)Not grant the QDRO. Among some of the reasons given were:They(ex-wife and attorney) had drafted a QDRO which did not coincide with the orders on the decree. It is not possible to change orders to a finalized decree after one party has died. Plus the time frame for the ex-wife to implement her claim(2 years) had long ago expired BEFORE this law had changed. 2) Brian and Jake also sought an alternative, should the judge see fit to sign a QDRO. In our proposed alternative, Brian asked that the QDRO be drawn up to match the decree. Given the QDRO guidelines set by the employer from The 401k Plan they were seeking, it was unlikely that the signed QDRO, would be approved. They could not draw up a QDRO which matched the decree and, at the same time, meet the requirements set forth by the employer. During the hearing, the judge made it clear to our opposition that she would only sign a QDRO which stated the exact language used in the orders of the decree. So, a new QDRO was drawn up by both sides, small adjustments were made by the judge before she signed it. The QDRO was sent and reviewed by the legal team who handles 401k's at the company with whom my husband had once been employed, it was REJECTED. This lady from my husband's past failed at her attempt to take such assets from his grieving family. Even with case law on her side, Brian and Jake were strategic in their timing and were well prepared.

I must admit I was hesitant at first to hire Ms. Blackful. After extensive research on her background I was satisfied and hired her. All I can say is that so far I have gotten what I asked, custody of my precious son and child support. She is very inexpensive, reliable, quick and straight to the point. I am in good hands and I'm super happy that I made the right choice to hire her. I promise that you will not regret it.

I highly recommend Gina Gilstrap Law & Mediation!! I went to her feeling hopeless in my divorce situation. She was comforting to me yet very aggressive in the courtroom. Not only did I win my divorce, she made my ex pay me monthly alimony payments and our children's school tuition and health insurance! During divorce debates - she pulled out the law books and schooled my ex's lawyer proving we were right and they were wrong. She knows the law!! If you need a divorce lawyer - Gina Gilstrap is the way to go!!

Lynne Jurek is professional, confident, compassionate, honest, and empathetic. She has no fear. She will make sure that she understands your position, but is a straight-shooter. She is not afraid of trial, will not force you to settle/agree, and has a reputation for appealing unfair judgments. If you want quality representation, you've found it.
