Bill and team really are the best. While my very high-conflict divorce was finalized six years ago, my ex continued to drag us back to court over minutia every year since then; that is when I hired Bill. At ever corner, Bill had my children's best interest in mind. Any advice he gave me, was prefaced with "What is going to be best for your kiddos is..." Bill has the utmost integrity, is an unflappable professional, he is a genuinely good person, and he is probably also one of the funniest people I know. I highly recommend Bill and his superstar team.

The Powers and Kerr firm was my life line. The team is amazing and attentive. And while I was going through the most difficult transition in my life, they always bought humor and smiles to the process. While this process is very common, your own situation has nuances that only this office can guide you through it all. So grateful for their expertise.

They gave me excellent service during my difficult time. They were responsive and clearly explained the process. They were professional and handled my divorce with care.

Jamie Kerr was incredibly helpful and kind when I was going through a hard time. I would recommend him 100%!

Great law firm with outstanding professionals that I highly recommend!

Terrible experience, called three separate times needing follow up for my appointment and got zero response. Each time I was told I'd receive a call same day, that never happened. Legal matters are important to the person needing assistance from a professional,..brushing possible clients off is a sure fire way to lose business.

I was very pleased with the service we received from Trusler Legal PLLC who helped us adopt our son. We are so thankful for Cristi's professional and thorough care for us during the entire process. Highly recommend this practice and have referred her to others!

I’ve worked with Cristi Trusler in divorce cases for over a decade. I have had multiple Collaborative divorce cases with her and have mediated for her as well. She is a compassionate and knowledge advocate and creative problem solver.

I HIGHLY recommend Cristi Trusler for family law, particularly custody cases. Cristi, along with her phenomenal paralegal worked countless months/hours and put forth everything they had to ensure that all of the facts were conveyed in court. We had many obstacles to overcome where the county our case was held. Cristi and her team did absolutely everything they could to speed up the process and keep a fire underneath their feet to move the needle. The end result was we WON custody of my little girl! Anyone who has had a case in Texas and you are a father wanting the best for your children - you know the struggles and chances of going before a court and presenting your case and winning...not very good odds. Well, we did it! Now my little girl is in a safe and way more stable environment than ever before. I and my wife cannot be more grateful for the huge blessing Cristi and her paralegal have been in this case. Cristi, if you see this review I want to again thank you so much for being a great advocate for my little girl. And for everyone else, take my word for it - you will not be disappointed.

I work in the family law field, and have for more than a decade. So when I was faced with needing to hire an attorney to represent my family, I knew exactly who I wanted for the job. Cristi Trusler and her staff are courteous, responsive, and always kept me and my husband informed about what our options were. Cristi and her paralegals answered all of our questions, welcomed our input, and addressed our concerns. When you are fighting for something as important as your children, it is imperative that you feel heard, and that you know you are getting the best possible advice from someone with real trial experience. My husband and I could not be more pleased with the work of Trusler Legal, and would recommend Ms. Trusler to anyone needing sound legal advice and representation.

Thank you Cathy and the team. Cathy Benouis is an expert in family law. She is honest, transparent and fair. I really appreciated how responsive Cathy was to my concerns, questions and other preoccupations while going through what was a tremendouly challenging time. I highly recommend Benouis Law!

As a parent, one of the most terrifying, emotionally charged situations I've experienced is finding myself in a child custody lawsuit. To compound that fear, I had no idea of who could or should represent me in the most important battle I may ever face, and it was paralyzing. Catherine was highly recommended to me by a prominent Austin attorney who practices law in another field. There are numerous reasons Catherine is both revered by her peers and ranked as a top Family Law attorney by the clients she has represented. She actively listens to absorb every detail of your case which allows her to identify all of the relevant information, to formulate multiple strategies, and then to analyze each angle to identify the most effective strategy. Catherine seamlessly navigates the nuances which make each case unique, and her execution and implementation is consistently thorough, well thought out, and diplomatic There is a singular, unknown skill set that very few of us are aware to look for when researching attorneys, and it is vital. I learned this from closely observing Catherine's conduct and process during our court hearings, and I only understood the importance when I experienced it firsthand. The attorney you hire needs to possess the instinct and intuition to accurately perceive, discern and react to everything that is not being said by the judge, the opposing council, any witnesses, and all other parties involved. In court, every statement made on behalf of both the Plaintiff and Defendant is intended to serve as evidence to either support or invalidate your argument, and no one is going to voluntarily reveal the cards in their hand. I believe Catherine’s ability to read people well enough to hone in on things that are not being spoken is exceedingly rare as it is not an attribute one can learn in law school, and this is exactly reason she has been able to establish an impeccable track record. When all of these strengths are combined with integrity, you get Catherine. She is a force to be reckoned with, and the only reason I maintain custody of my children. I strongly recommend her to represent anyone in any family law matter you’re facing because she earned my trust and respect.

I highly recommend Benouis Law. Catherine is a skilled attorney who can keep a level head and operate with grace and intelligence even in the most challenging situations. She helped me navigate a protracted divorce with professionalism and compassion, and I am grateful. Her highly capable paralegal Janine is equally supportive and professional—they make a great team. Thank you, Catherine and Janine!

I am so grateful for Benouis Law. Cathy and Janine have been more than helpful. I have been treated with respect and I have felt more like family than a client. Being in evolved in a lawsuit is stress full. Catherine and her staff have eased that stress and allowed me to get on with my life. I highly recommend Benouis Law for any of your family law needs. You will not be disappointed. She Truly cares about her clients and it shows in her results. Thank you Catherine for all you do.

Catherine and her para are inscrutable. They are wise, caring and totally professional.

I'm so grateful that Amy Lambert was recommended to me when I was going through my divorce several years ago. She helped my ex and I navigate those waters with the best interest of the children in mind, always having my back but never letting things get contentious. Fast forward to this year, she deftly crafted a necessary prenuptial agreement for my new marriage, to protect my children's assets and help us start off on the same page financially. I whole heartedly recommend her and her office.

Scott Milner and his team are the best Austin has to offer. I highly recommend they be your first call.

Beautiful office and people, very helpful meeting with the attorney. She is incredibly knowledgeable and a great communicator. Asked the right questions in a direct and clear manner and similarly used the information to provide clear direction. In my case she was unable to help but was clear and to the point in arriving to that conclusion.

I hired Gracy Woods one of the youngest I believe at the firm. We attended a temporary hearing where I was not prepared for by Gracy. After a few hours of her standing with my husband and his lawyer she came to me insisting I sign HIS temporary order. THIS IS A BAD IDEA! To anyone that hasn't done this yet, if you are in a situation like I was, DON'T sign the opponent’s. There is 2 kids involved , alcoholism, neglect and verbal abuse. She handed me his order and I said with all my power "this feels wrong" and she said "the judge will not look good on you". She insisted to give him half custody, NO CHILD SUPPORT, NO ACCESS TO MY THINGS IN OUR HOME AND YES NO HOME FOR ME TO LIVE IN. I was so scared and my ex showed with his whole family and his bright blue wedding shoes on smiling at me. I felt like I was in a dream and out of fear, I signed. IT'S BEEN 6 MONTHS trying to make up for that order. 35K in debt AND my babies have gone through so much unnecessary harm. It's taken me a long time to write this review as I really struggle to leave negative reviews. Gracy was not prepared. She was so nervous she was shaking and she let the other lawyer over power her. She kept leaving her things around the courthouse forgetting. I have since interviewed many lawyers and they ALL said this was one of the worst orders they have ever seen. My hope is since our experience Gracy has had more experience and next time pushes harder for the safety of the kids.

Amy Lambert is an excellent collaborative divorce attorney. She is dedicated to helping clients and their children get through divorce away from the courtroom, making it as easy as possible to move forward from a difficult time.

The BEST FAMILY Law Attorney I have ever worked with. 1 year ago I was blindsided with a separation and custody battle. It all started with my ex wanting to leave making false child abuse and domestic abuse claims against me. She was threatening to have me never see the kids and specifically telling me that she would 'destroy my life'. Ryan Dougay was highly recommended from multiple attorney friends of mine. I walked into his office thinking I was totally ruined financially, in my relationship with my kids and with my reputation. Ryan went above and beyond. He came up with multiple strategies implemented them and within 8 weeks I was in a position to get full custody of my children. That being said, Ryan also helped pull in the reins of resentment and 'divorce frustration' and guide me on making the best choice for myself, family and kids in a post divorce world. As it was told to me 1 year ago - 'I you have a case that can be won, Ryan will win it'. 100% Truth

Hire him..he's worth every penny

I highly recommend Ryan Dougay for custody issues. My daughter hired him to represent her in custody of her 2 children. As a mother fighting for her children and a grandmother having to watch, it was a very difficult time. After meeting with Ryan, he put our minds at ease. He gave us straight forward answers and explained what would happen. He believed in my daughter and had my granddaughters best interest at heart. My daughter got her girls back and if it wasn't for Ryan, she would still be fighting to see them. If you are reading this review, you are searching for a great attorney to fight for your children, I would call Ryan. I am so happy and relieved that we did.

I was extremely fortunate to have been referred to Ryan. Once I hired him my confidence immediately skyrocketed and the outcome was far better than I could have ever imagined. If a friend of yours referred you to Ryan, then they have just given you a lifeline.

I highly recommend Ryan as a competent, skilled, and effective family law attorney. Going through a divorce is never going to be a fun experience, but Ryan's extensive knowledge of Texas family law and good humor made my own personal journey much easier and productive than I had anticipated being possible. He presented me with clear and understandable options that, ultimately, led to a good and fair outcome for both concerned, and also helped me navigate a process that, without his assistance, would have been otherwise even more painful and challenging. You would be wise to consider him if you find yourself having to face such a difficult life change.

That being said, Ryan also helped pull in the reins of resentment and 'divorce frustration' and guide me on making the best choice for myself, family and kids in a post divorce world. As it was told to me 1 year ago - 'I you have a case that can be won, Ryan will win it'. 100% Truth

    I highly recommend Ryan Dougay for custody issues. My daughter hired him to represent her in custody of her 2 children. As a mother fighting for her children and a grandmother having to watch, it was a very difficult time. After meeting with Ryan, he put our minds at ease. He gave us straight forward answers and explained what would happen. He believed in my daughter and had my granddaughters best interest at heart. My daughter got her girls back and if it wasn't for Ryan, she would still be fighting to see them. If you are reading this review, you are searching for a great attorney to fight for your children, I would call Ryan. I am so happy and relieved that we did.

    I was extremely fortunate to have been referred to Ryan. Once I hired him my confidence immediately skyrocketed and the outcome was far better than I could have ever imagined. If a friend of yours referred you to Ryan, then they have just given you a lifeline.

    I highly recommend Ryan as a competent, skilled, and effective family law attorney. Going through a divorce is never going to be a fun experience, but Ryan's extensive knowledge of Texas family law and good humor made my own personal journey much easier and productive than I had anticipated being possible. He presented me with clear and understandable options that, ultimately, led to a good and fair outcome for both concerned, and also helped me navigate a process that, without his assistance, would have been otherwise even more painful and challenging. You would be wise to consider him if you find yourself having to face such a difficult life change.

I recommend Mr. Newberry to anyone in need of a lawyer who is reliable and to the point. Thanks to the fast and accurate work done by himself and his great staff, my kids and I finally got the results we so desperately needed. I can’t recommend him enough! He really saved us from a situation that was spiraling out of control! This is a lawyer who will fight for what’s best for you and your kids. I’m so grateful to have found him!

Joe Newberry is hard working, honest and listens to your needs. He takes into consideration every detail of the case. You will have peace of mind when working with Joe and his firm.

Joe took over my case after I tried to do it myself. My wife hired a board certified family lawyer in Austin and I was feeling pressured. As soon as i took Joe and his team on as my firm I felt the relief. They immediately took over and dealt directly with the other attorney. The terms of our agreement were settled more favorable to me because I had Joe in my back pocket. I would recommend hiring Newberry Law if you have any family law needs in Austin. He definitely can stand up to the heavy hitters and although I didn't need him to go to court, I felt 100% confident that I would be represented firmly there. His team is awesome. Very responsive and equipped for this type of situation. Would recommend to everyone in need.

I contacted Joe Newberry after receiving paperwork from my husband who was filing for divorce. Joe met with me almost immediately and answered all of my questions honestly and directly from the beginning. His staff was unbelievably helpful and compassionate during this time in my life. I would recommend Joe to anyone going through a divorce. He protected my children and my finances from the get go. He worked through dealing with my difficult husband and his extremely difficult attorney. In the end Joe and his team were so prepared and ready to fight that we were able to get an agreement that helped me and my boys move forward. Do NOT hesitate to contact him should you need help with a divorce. He is aggressive, responsive, and always prepared.

Joe is a good attorney and he’s a good and honest guy. I’ve worked with him for quite some time now and I definitely appreciate his no nonsense approach and knowledge of the law and complex legal matters. He remained calm and has kept me calm in the face of some weird stuff from the other side. Regardless of tactics displayed, he has always kept the kids at the forefront of the matter doing the right thing throughout. Joe has a good team working with them. I really like the main paralegal assigned to my case, Leslie, and it’s nice that he always brings her to hearings, etc. with him. She’s smart, helpful, and has a common sense approach. She does a good job in her work — whereas I’ve seen other paralegals at other firm(s) that frequently spelled things incorrectly, made careless mistakes, and weren’t very thorough. That’s not the case with Leslie and I really appreciate it. It’s hard to be taken seriously when pleadings are riddled with careless errors and that has not been my experience with this firm. Melissa, another paralegal on my case, is also friendly and helpful - I just haven’t worked with her as much as Leslie. Family matters are tough to navigate and it’s important to have a steadfast advocate that keeps their focus on what’s most important, listens to your needs and the needs of your children, and fights for same when necessary.
