I really haven't had alot of dealings with lawyers, but went in dreading the whole thing and came out very happy that it was not like I expected. All the people in the office where a delight. ... Very friendly and informative on different issues I had going on. When I needed to ask a question never had a problem getting them on the phone with a quick answer. Will be using them very soon again for family matters. Definitely recommended if you need to make a Will or probate ....everyone waits till the last minute for there Will you never know it's for the best of everyone to have one.....

They are professional and knowledgeable all while being personable with their clients. We're very pleased with the services we've been provided through Hegwood Law Group.

I wish I could give them even less than 1 star. We paid them upfront (bad idea) and they literally gave us 10 mins of time and said "I'm sorry we cant help you." But thank you for your money. NO REFUND. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THESE PEOPLE. THEY ARE SCAM ARTISTS. And yes you have a credit card with my name on it. To come back and reply to my review with a response of "we dont have anything by you" is just another part of your scam.

Hegwood Law Group by far is one of the best law firms I’ve worked with. I had estate matters in TX that were mishandled by a different attorney. After one phone consult they immediately stepped in and took over finalizing the estate concerns. Danielle and Kim were always available day or night ready to answer any questions I had. Even when I expressed bad judgement due to lack of knowledge they always steered me in the right direction instead of going with “whatever the client says”. To me that exudes true client focused representation. Many law firms would’ve easily seen me as an opportunity to maximize a bill being that I lived in NC but not Hedgewood. I recommend them any day and I consider them my TX attorneys.

I had called to inquire about help and possible representation for a probate issue. Everyone I spoke with was very friendly and helpful. I was transferred to Lisa and she helped answer some of my questions and was very friendly as well. Her knowledge helped resolve the issue almost immediately. If I need anymore help or representation she will be the first person I reach out to!!

This lawyer won’t even show up to his own deposition in which they already rescheduled for him once. This is extremely unacceptable and should not have been allowed. Think twice before even thinking about going with this firm.

We have referred many clients to Ford+Bergner over the past few years. While some cases were very difficult, they were able to solve their issues, resulting in happy clients. Each referral came back and raved about the level of service and professionalism given by Mr. Ford and his staff. Kudos to F+B!

The best probate attorneys in Houston. They made the entire process very easy and communicated very clearly what my best options were. Highly recommended.

I've been a financial professional for nearly 20 years. The Ford + Bergner law firm has been a pillar of my practice due to the expertise and professionalism my clients have experienced in working with their attorneys and staff. Don Ford's firm has earned the trust and admiration from me not only as a professional, but also in helping me safeguarding my own family.

Don Ford III handled a difficult litigation matter which resulted in an outcome that far exceed my expectations. Don and his staff were friendly, professional and responsive. I would highly recommend Ford + Bergner without any reservation.

My mother selected Christine to handle her estate. It was Christine's first family estate work. Ms. Butts was meticulous, committed, and competent. After mom passed Christine was empathetic and patient while explaining all the details to my brothers and I. My husband and I in turn also choose Christine to prepare our estate documents, containing multiple trusts. As trustee myself, for my deceased brother's two children, her heartfelt advice to me has proven valuable and relevant. I highly recommend Christine and her law firm.

We scheduled an appointment with Attorney Christine Butts for a review of our estate plan. We received an appointment within a few days. During our ~1 hour meeting, all of our topics were discussed thoroughly plus several others. Christine's suggestions were very specific and easily implemented. Christine and her staff were highly personable, friendly and very professional. We highly recommend Christine and her firm.

I highly recommend Riddle & Butts for any estate planning needs. Mrs. Butts recently handled my fathers estate. She is incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and most importantly honest. She was able to make a very difficult time much more manageable. The entire staff was a delight to work with.

My husband and I just completed our Estate Planing with Riddle and Butts LLP. We worked directly with Christine Butts and we are extremely happy with the outcome of the process. Her professionalism, knowledge, suggestions and care during the planing helped us ensure a worry free process some day in our future. She explained everything thoroughly, the pros, the cons in a simple but detailed manner, she answered all our questions and we never felt rushed thru the process. We did not realize how poorly written our old wills were until we met with Christine. We highly recommend Riddle and Butts LLP, Attorneys at Law. Sent from my iPad

Thank you to the staff and attorneys at Riddle & Butts for helping my mother. We appreciate your patience, accommodating her language barrier, professionalism, and efficient service.

My husband and I simply cannot say enough great things about McNair Law Group. Joy is the epitome of professionalism. We were impressed with her work. She is friendly, detail-oriented and very personable, which we appreciated. She makes sure you understand every step of the process. Our final estate planning package was quite impressive! Joy was accommodating to our schedules, traveling closer to our side of town. We will recommend McNair Law Group to friends and family.

Although not a PhD in Physics (like Joy's father was) I thought I was pretty smart. Trying to study trusts and wills on my own proved me wrong. Joy's knowledge experience and patience led us through the intricacies of the law with aplomb. Now we can die. I mean... Thanks Joy, it was a pleasure, an enlightening experience and it was even fun at times. Well done!

Ms. Joy McNair's Law Group met and exceeded all my expectations and requirements. The McNair Law Group staff was efficient, polite and always accommodating. Ms. McNair is very knowledgeable and produced for me a comprehensive set of estate documents. She was gracious and at no time gave me the typical lawyer look down the nose attitude. She took her time in explaining all the elements of my documents and answered all my questions. The final package was professional and worth every penny. I feel confident my family will be secure with this comprehensive document coverage. You will be in excellent hands at the McNair Law firm - Elder Law and and Estate Planning - they are outstanding! I would not think of using anyone else!

Excellent service and attention. Attorney Joy McNair was wonderful, she explained everything with extreme patients and precision. Would definitely recommend and use their service again.

Excellent experience. Extremely professional, methodical, and patient. Always provided thoughtful and competent answers to my layman questions about estate planning. Highly recommend.

Thuy is very caring and professional. What made me decide to hire her was the fact that she went out of her way to help me even though I didn’t pay for her service. Just for that I really respect her as a person. Her work is also top notch, highly recommended.

Brad was highly recommended by our trusted financial advisor. He helped us confidently decide between establishing a trust versus a will for our children. He also helped us get rid of a timeshare!! We thought we would be stuck with this timeshare forever and that it would be passed onto our children as a burden. We have even been scammed in the past with a company that would've supposedly sell our timeshare off within a few months (and of course, we paid upfront). With Brad's guidance, we never have to worry about a timeshare ever again! He goes above and beyond, even though he does not specialize in timeshares etc. We are very grateful for Brad as our family's future is much more secure now!

When dealing with matters that are so critical to the well-being of your family or business, I couldn't have consulted with any one more professional and supportive than the Featherston Tran team. The attorneys are truly dedicated and care about doing what's right for you and your family's best interests. Estate planning is something no one wants to think about, but Thuy and Brad will ensure that the process will be as painless as possible. I have also consulted with them on numerous small business legal matters as well as corporate policies and have found them to be equally knowledgeable in those areas. Highly recommended! Give them a call, you will be glad you did.

Thuy Tran personally handled out estate planning. She was thoughtful and professional walking us through the process. We had several complex questions and scenarios we needed to address. I would highly recommend to anyone to use Featherston Tran for your estate planning. We were able to meet & visit with Brad during our consultations and were very impressed with both attorneys.

I've worked with Thuy and Brad on numerous issues and they have been outstanding in every way. They are both very down to earth and focus more on helping their clients instead of overbilling them! I love how they are both easy to reach and very thorough in their communication. I highly recommend this group!

A very thorough work of estate planning including points I had not thought of. Many thanks for a great job.

Thank you Joanne Badeaux for the dedication of your law firm. The experience of your dedication gave us hope and made us feel that we matter. We are so appreciative of you listening to us and caring about our situation. We are thankful for you referring us to Christopher Gregg. Thank you for taking the time to explain our situation to him on our behalf. My family feels that we are in good hands with Christopher Gregg. We wanted to thank you for all that you have done for us as well as many others in this community. Sincerely, Sandra Smith and Family

My wife and I recently had Shelby Perrin prepare our Wills and associated Directives and Power of Attorney documents. We are highly pleased with the legal work and the cordial team. Dealing with Badeaux & Associates was a pleasant experience.

Thank you JoAnne! I got such thorough and enjoyable legal consultation. My business has significantly profited from Joanne's time, and can confidently complete the contract, and utilize her practical legal advise. I highly recommend her!

I first met attorney Joanne Badeaux 14 years ago when she helped me untangle a messy warranty deed issue that my divorce attorney had overlooked; a dilemma that could have turned into a nightmare later on when I wanted to sell my house. Because of her exceptional thoroughness, I use her for all my legal needs. For example, after my dad died, his simple will caused more problems than it solved, creating confusion among my brothers, sisters, and I. Joanne stepped in, clarified everyone's legal rights, gathered the assets correctly, and handled the probate. In the end I was treated fairly, the way my Dad would have wanted. I always refer my close friends and family members to Joanne Badeaux.

Kevin Horner was very conscientious and professional in developing our estate plan, which included restating a trust originally developed in another state. He is a good listener and made sure that the plan was well adapted to our family circumstances. He also completed the plan in a short time before we departed on international travel. We feel confident that we have received good advice. The support staff at Galligan and Manning are also friendly and efficient.

We are extremely happy that we chose Galligan & Manning for guidance with our family trust formation. Kevin Horner provided us with a great deal of education throughout the whole process and guided us every step of the way. He is extremely patient and explains things in a way that is very practical to understand. The practice overall is very professional and they are quick and consistent with responding. I could not be more pleased with our experience.

Had a wonderful experience with Kevin Horner to handle my portion of the pre-nup with my husband. This was my first marriage and pre-nup and Kevin walked me through the process as if It were as intricate as a first time home purchase. Kevin was extremely knowledgeable and took the intent of our wishes and articulated in a way that was reflected contractually. If you’re looking for a lawyer that will share the pros and cons of each section of your pre-nup, look no further than Kevin.

Quickly and efficiently took care of my needs. I am referring them to everyone I know.

Kevin was very professional. He did a great job with my estate planning needs. Everything was completed in a timely manner.

    Kevin Horner was very conscientious and professional in developing our estate plan, which included restating a trust originally developed in another state. He is a good listener and made sure that the plan was well adapted to our family circumstances. He also completed the plan in a short time before we departed on international travel. We feel confident that we have received good advice. The support staff at Galligan and Manning are also friendly and efficient.

    We are extremely happy that we chose Galligan & Manning for guidance with our family trust formation. Kevin Horner provided us with a great deal of education throughout the whole process and guided us every step of the way. He is extremely patient and explains things in a way that is very practical to understand. The practice overall is very professional and they are quick and consistent with responding. I could not be more pleased with our experience.

I recently went and worked with Deborah Newman for a civil matter. She was extremely knowledgeable and understanding of the situation at hand. Plus, she was able to execute everything in a very timely manner. Before I knew it, everything was settled and done. If you’re looking for a great attorney in the Houston area she’s the one!

I have not yet retained a firm but I spoke with Janet at the firm and then was referred to Ms. Newman. I found both people to be very knowledgeable and respectful. They are referred a lot of business by an attorney who works in another area of law who I have worked with for 10 years. For that attorney to refer them business means they do know what they are doing. I look forward to engaging with Ms. Newman and their team in the coming days.

Deborah Newman was taking advantage from her client as much as she can. She asked her client to pay two attorneys fee at same time during a meeting, even you did not hire two attorneys, even one of them knows nothing about your case. She attended the meeting only for one reason : she wanted to take big retainer from client, in order to get big retainer from client she even told client she is able to get the attorney fee back that you paid for your former attorney, this is why you need to pay her bigger retainer as her asked on the meeting, you need to pay the time she was asking you paying the retainer. Once you paid her retainer, she will no longer work for what she said. Tip: If you hired the firm, please tell her, you only want to have a meeting with the attorney who working on your case, If she attend the meeting with the attorney together, you have to pay attention to what she said. DO NOT PAY HER LARGE RETAINER AS SHE ASKED! If you are very rich person and to try to destroy your savings, you can hire the firm.

I want to thank Deborah Newman and her staff for their kindness and professionalism that I received during our consultation session. Even though she has handled million dollar cases over the years, she made my case seem just as important. May God continue to bless the Newman Law Firm many more years. Evonne S.

I would highly recommend Deborah Newman & her staff. Deborah's kindness, concern & expertise was especially appreciated during a very difficult time. Her staff was wonderful, especially legal assistant, Phillip Lopez, who was always professional, polite & extremely helpful.

My husband and I were really happy and relived after our first "meet and greet". I have procrastinating for years to get our will and estate planning done. This law firm is down to earth, very professional and never tried to appear smarter than us. Got this done quickly, well priced and not oversold. Didn't have a lawyer, didn't know I needed a lawyer now we have one to support our needs going down the road. Do yourself a favor and get your will and planning done. Don't leave it for your love ones.

Am very delighted with my experience with Doehring & Doehring Attorneys at Law (D&D). The D&D team thoroughly answered any questions I had and prepared my estate planning documents timely and with professionalism. Truly appreciate how patient, organized and precise they were throughout the entire estate planning process. I definitely recommend D&D to others.

I cannot say enough good things about Mr. David Doehring and the staff at Doehring and Doehring. I find that Mr. Doehring is upright, sincere and dependable. He is conscientious and reliable. When my mother’s health took a turn for the worse, Mr. Doehring responded promptly and addressed the matter expeditiously . The staff at Doehring and Doehring is very friendly and professional as well. They sincerely invested their time and effort in my mother’s case reliably and diligently. They did a lot of work and all of it was excellent! You can depend on getting an honest and professional deal at Doehring and Doehring. I highly recommend them!

David and his team are absolutely superb in their knowledge and client care. My husband and I went to David for counsel after a bad experience and many thousands of dollars later with another law firm. David immediately took over and handled our case with ease. I highly recommend Doehring & Doehring for any of your needs. You will be in great hands!

Having recently completed my estate planning with David, I found him to be a knowledgeable and compassionate professional. He was willing and able to answer any questions and concerns I had. I highly recommend this firm!

My wife and I recently engaged the Law Firm of Smith & Smith to assist us in our needs to have new Will's created due to changing dynamics in our family and relocating here from another state. After attending various workshops at Lone Star College and interviewing different attorneys specializing in Wills, Trusts, etc., we knew that Blanche Smith and her team were who we wanted to construct our Will's. They made absolutely sure our desires were addressed to protect our estate as we wanted on each facet of the documents created. The high degree of professionalism and sincere caring manner they exhibited at each step really exceeded our expectations. Phil & Bonnie Harris

I found the office to be staffed with professional, cordial people most anxious to address my legal concerns. They developed a trust for my assets and a will, that meet all my needs and provides the legal protection of my assets that I had to have. Good job Smith and Smith! Dean Zurkammer

I recommend Mr. and Mrs. Smith to my Family and Friends as I trust them whole heartedly and have witnessed them going above and beyond to protect and ensure peace of mind for our clients. It really is "All About Family" with this Firm, these are not just great Elder Law Attorneys - they are parents, siblings, friends, family members, neighbors ... just like you and I. They understand the importance and integrity of what they are doing.

Steve and Blanche have their clients best interests at heart. They know all the twists and turns of the elder laws and probate. Attending one of their lunch and learns or sip and learns is well worth the time.

Steve Smith is a man of integrity and truly has a passion for helping people. He takes the time to figure out what fits best for each client. Thanks Steve for being there for your clients! You guys are the best!
