What Our Client Say

I had a unique custody case that was a bit of an uphill battle for what I wanted to accomplish. Catherine Fuller and Slav Talavera were incredible and got me AMAZING results and I was completely done within a few months. I thought this would drag out through the end of the year. They were extremely thorough and excellent with communication. I hope I won't need their services again, but will go back to them if I ever do and I highly recommend Walters Gilbreath.

Laura Kliman - Austin,TX

I cannot express enough gratitude to David Spradling for his helpful demeanor throughout my divorce. I have been divorced before, but that was over 20 years ago and I know times and things have changed drastically. David gave me the confidence I needed and I felt assured things would be ok. Actually, after mediation, things turned out better than I anticipated and I owe that to David. Thank you, David. Well done!

Melton Cory - Austin,TX

Slav Talavera is an amazing lawyer. He speaks 4 languages and knows his stuff. Slav just won my custody modification case and was able to get me more than I was expecting. This is who you want in your corner!

Eric Lord - Austin,TX

Jake Gilbreath and Brian Walters were always very professional, caring, and prompt with all of their responses to my questions. They handled my very complicated custody matter and were able to protect both me and my children in our time of need. If you need attorneys that are knowledgeable and will fight tooth and nail for you, I wouldn’t recommend any other firm. You won’t be disappointed.

Heather Watts - Austin,TX

Brian and his team can't be beat. With almost 2 decades of experience in TX, it was apparent immediately that my husband and I were in good hands when we started an ugly custody battle. He was honest and didn't sugar coat anything, but reassuring at the same time. I have heard nothing but horror stories about people's experiences with attorneys and this was a first for me. I've never had any legal battle, so I was very nervous. Family law seems to be ugly most of the time, but Brian and his team made us feel at ease with our case from day 1. He knows the judges in Austin and accurately anticipates how they will likely respond to any given circumstance, which made the whole process easier for us. At the end of the day, the custody battle ended with a successful adoption. My family and I couldn't be happier. I very strongly recommend Brian Walters.

Molly Goetzman - Austin,TX

I am beyond thankful to have had this team on my side! Stephanie's professionalism, strength, and pure kindness towards me during such a traumatic time was amazing. She is a great communicator and handled everything that was thrown our way wonderfully. In addition, Sarah was such an asset and provided assertive solutions that were extremely helpful. There's nothing more empowering than having strong, powerful women on your side during a huge life change. I highly recommend Walters Gilbreath!

Kimberly Burns - Austin, TX

Brian and his staff were great. Brian's direction and expertise provided me with the legal information relevant for my needs over several years now. He listens and is steadfast which gave me comfort in the courses of action. I highly recommend him.

Larry mann - Austin,TX

Brian and staff were extremely responsive from the get-go. They were polite, helpful, and objective in their assessment of my case. I would highly recommend reaching-out to them to discuss your case. You'll spend a little money but what more noble a cause for your money than ensuring a smooth future for yourself and family? Short answer, there is none. Spend the money and do it right the first time. That was my goal and I am already impressed. Brian, Sheree, and Priyanka are all great!

Thomas Fennesy - Austin,TX

The team at Walter's and Gilbreath have been wonderful from the very start. This has been a long journey and still going on. Priyanka Bins and Sheree have been amazing. I would recommend this law firm!

Katherine Trujillo - Austin,TX

He was on vacation and still wrote back immediately. Listened and told me exactly what he would need to do.. His team is great as well. They get straight to the point n very hard nose about getting the job done. Glad I found him.

Shae Smith - Austin,TX

In 2014 I hired Brian Walters to represent me in a custody case. The divorce decree was amended in several areas that significantly benefited my visitation and parental rights. Since that time, on numerous occasions, several questions have arisen on issues and I have contacted Brian. Brian had immediately responded regardless of the hour. I would not hesitate to hire him again.

William Greeson - Austin,TX

Robert promptly answers emails and returns calls; his replies are always clear and succinct. Best of all, Robert genuinely believes in his clients. He is a fierce advocate fighting for the justice you deserve. And that goes a long way in making a stressful experience more manageable and tolerable. I highly recommend Attorney Tsai to anyone in need of expert legal counsel.

Thank you for all Slav ! 😇

Elizabet Mejia - Austin,TX

Jake has been an incredible attorney. He did an absolutely incredible job representing me throughout my divorce and custody hearings back in 2013. It was not a simple case by any means; I was asking for a lot. He was very straight forward about his agenda and executed them seamlessly. He got the other party to settle and we signed off on everything I asked for, within reason. That arrangement was perfect for our family but unfortunately two years later in 2015, my situation with my children's father took a turn for the worse. I was uncertain what was going on but I rehired Jake to help me sort it out. He immediately set up a meeting with him that Sunday (his day off). Within a week we were in court with an order to test the other party for drugs. As soon as he found out the results came back positive for several drugs, he called me to meet him at his office to sign off on an injunction. He went before a judge that same day to cease all visitations until we could get a Guardian Ad Litem to further investigate. This escalated quickly from a modification case to a termination case. He communicates very well and doesn't beat around the bush. I have full faith in Jake. He has always put the best interest of the children first and that alone lets me rest easy. Even though he has several clients at a time, he has never made me feel like anything less than his top priority. I would (and have) recommend him to anyone going through a hard time and in need of a fantastic attorney.

Toxic_pigs - Austin,TX

I can’t say enough good things about Jake and his team. He is prompt with all responses and he genuinely cares. He explained every step of the way when he helped me through my complex divorce and custody case. I would definitely hire him again!

Catherine Joseph - Austin,TX

Jake and I went to law school together, so naturally when I started the divorce process myself, he came to mind. I couldn’t be happier with him and his entire firm. What was supposed to be an easy, uncontested divorce has turned in to an extremely difficult case with many additional filings and negotiations necessary to protect myself and my children. Jake is extremely responsive and has guided me in appropriate decision making which has left me in a much better position than I would have if I had decided to represent myself (don’t do that!). I couldn’t recommend Jake and his firm more highly. Best family lawyer in Austin!

Melek Oz - Austin,TX

5 stars doesn't do Slav Talavera any justice. I've been embroiled in a bitter and complicated family law case for 4 years to which Slav guided me through the entire process when I hired him 6 months ago when no other attorney could. He was extremely patient, compassionate and fought for me with conviction. I finally get as though someone was fighting for me and in a family law case, that is what you need. He managed my expectations through and through and I could not be happier. He's simply the best

Betty Tran - Austin,TX

Raya is amazing and Bryan is just as great! Communication has been excellent and they truly care about their clients. Very helpful and great at answering questions. I could not be happier with the choice I made to hire him. If you want an amazing lawyer who has a great staff you need Bryan Walter!!!! Nothing but great things to say about him and his staff, especially Raya. They look out for their clients and do what’s best for them and truly want your input on everything!

liesl pyle - Austin,TX

I CANNOT sing the praises of Jake Gilbreath enough. He guided me through perhaps the most difficult time -a very complex divorce - of my life and gave me a new lease on it.

Not only did he successfully help me secure what I wanted in my divorce and custody which already a HUGE success. We had to win not ONLY in one state, but two for example. He artfully explained the law, the process, and reasoning for why he made the choices in our case like a partner or mentor. Incidentally, I also gained a dear friend and brother. Unlike many other attorneys I have met Jake cares to a degree that is staggering and it obvious when you work with him.

Today several years later I still think about and am grateful for the decision to work with Jake and even though she may not know it so is my child. If you're thinking about utilizing Jake's services...do it.

Thank you so much Jake!

Mikal Abdullah - Austin,TX

As a former client of Slav Talavera, I can state firsthand how diligent and responsive he was. Slav was able to make a very difficult situation and time in my life as smooth and seamless as possible. He was always willing to answer any questions or concerns I had throughout the process. I would highly recommend him and Walters Gilbreath to anyone looking for the best representation in Texas.

Chris Stump - Austin,TX

As an attorney in Austin, I have recommended opposing parties to Slav for drafting marital agreements, which I believe is a particularly strong skill of his. Additionally, he is a well prepared and respectful advocate in front of the Judges of Central Texas who serves his clients effectively.

Colin Newberry - Austin,TX

Slav Talavera is very professional attorney with big experience in family law. He speaks several languages including Russian and Spanish. I would highly recommend him!

Tatiana Nam - Austin,TX

I would highly recommend Slav Talevera to anyone looking for a reliable, honest, loyal and knowledgeable attorney. It’s important to me to feel like anyone representing me legally has my best interest in mind, with Mr. Talevara I did and so will you.

Ashley Crouse Stump - Austin,TX

Jake is amazing. His focus is on creating healthy co-parenting dynamics for the kids. Even if the other party is making it difficult, Jake is an expert at maintaining focus and integrity throughout the games other family attorneys attempt to play. If you have children and it's all about money to you, don't call this guy. He won't put up with you. But if you need help fighting for your legal rights and your children are the top priority- then you shouldn't waste time getting in to see him because no one will work harder for you (or be as honest) than this guy.

Sara Gustafson - Austin,TX

Slav Talavera is hands down the best family law attorney in Austin. I would not recommend anyone else for any family law matter.

Duana Loechel - Austin,TX

I’m an attorney in the community and I would recommend Slav Talavera and Walters Gilbreath.
 
 

Elizabeth Shehan - Austin,TX

Jake Gilbreath is a fantastic attorney and advocate. His assistance has forever changed the path of my family in a positive way! The process of pursuing a divorce and attempting to come to a resolution that is best -especially when it involves custody- can be very difficult. Through this entire process I felt like I had a counselor, guide, and a friend. If you are dealing with a family law issue or especially to do with child custody this is the only person that I would ever recommend!

Mikal Abdullah - Austin,TX

I hired Jake Gilbreath on a short notice. He was able to meet me on a Sunday to answer my questions and address my concerns. He is very responsive. I would happily recommend him.

Josseline Siguenza - Austin,TX

I was referred to Brian by friend of mine who is an attorney at a well known firm in town. Brian has been outstanding. He is very efficient in his interactions, very thorough in his explanations of legal processes and always looked out for my best interests in our interactions. He carefully explained options when there were decision points, outlined various alternatives to next steps and then handled the subsequent activities in a timely manner. Brian has been responsive to all my inquiries and also patient in waiting for me to make some decisions. My interactions with him also included a filing with his associate, who is also very professional. Brian ensured that he kicked off that process by setting my expectations and then ensuring a complete and thorough follow up. Brian also leverages technology to handle some of the operational aspects of the engagements and that makes those efficient and cost effective. I would highly recommend Brian.

Raul skaliks - Austin,TX

Very Professional and knowledgeable about Family Law and they have always upheld my personal and financial interests above their own.

Kipp Vann - Austin,TX

Jake did an excellent job working with me on my divorce. He was responsive,professional and very trust worthy.

Holly Keen Keen - Austin,TX

I'm a current client of Mr. Brian Walter's law office in Austin, Texas an I have always had a positive experience in working with him. My primary means of contact with Mr. Walters was through email which was always prompt I never had to wait long for a reply. Mr. Walters also answered questions I had on weekend hours when the office was closed. I was using the legal services for a divorce an I never had a problem with Mr. Walter's performance whatever I asked of him it was done immediately. All petitions an other paperwork was filed quickly. Between the fees I was charged and the work that was received I was very satisfied an I will use this law office in the future if needed.

Jessica Hayes - Austin,TX

Brian is the guy that saved me when my ex filed for divorce. My experience with Brian was wonderful. If you are looking for a kind, concerned and professional attorney. Having Brian in your corner will be the best decision you could make. Brian and his staff will do everything possible to protect you when you need an attorney in your corner. After everything is over and done I consider Brian a good friend. You will never go wrong with Brian Walters in your corner.

R chip Reuss - Austin,TX

I have nothing but great things to say about this law firm. After searching and speaking to many attorneys, Brian Walters was the most knowledgeable in family law. My case was different as I live in Chicago IL, but needed representation in Austin, TX. I was worried about price and communication. Brian Walters asked for about half of what other attorneys asked for a retainer. Communication with him and his office was amazing. There is a portal where you can see invoices, documents, and contact Brian Walters directly and he responds fast!

Now that my case is finalized I feel comfortable recommending Brian Walters to anyone who needs to go through family matters like Child support.

Cristina Hepler - Austin,TX

I was looking for a great trial attorney for a child modification. At Walters Gilbreath, they have gone above and beyond. I have a very limited budget and they have stuck with that budget and their work is outstanding. Jake Gilbreath and Robert Tsai at the firm are the first attorneys who have shown they actually care and have put an interest in my case, listened to the information I send them, and are very OCD. They get the job done right but also understand you cannot go bankrupt in the process. If you are looking for a great attorney, look no further. This is the place to go.

Hanna hepp - Austin,TX

My original family law attorney for many years had decided not to practice family law anymore so I was in desperate need to locate a new lawyer. Brian Walters was the 2nd law firm that I interviewed and was immediately impressed with his knowledge of the law and his “up front” candor. Another thing that impressed me was his fee and his attention to communication. If you are looking for an attorney that is very accessible Brian is for you. BTW he did win our case :-)

Gregory L. Reese - Austin,TX

Mr. Walters was the consummate professional. At a stressful time in my life, he was there to “walk me through” the system and to be my advocate in court. I’m afraid the court would have eaten me alive had Mr. Walters not been there for me. He was very prompt in answering all my questions and he earned an A+ for communication. I do highly recommend him. Family matters in court are stressful, to say the least. Take my advice…. don’t go through it alone. The legal fees are worth every penny.

Robert Lewis - Austin,TX

Brian Walters is an Attorney that you can trust. I hired him for a child custody modification case about a year ago. The case ended up dragging out and finally came to fruition last month. Brian continued consistent support from the beginning of the case through the end. He responded to all communications from me within the hour I sent them. He and everyone from his firm are wonderful.

Lisa Cartwright - Austin,TX

I was ambushed with a divorce and a custody battle. I needed a knowledgeable tested lawyer that offered quality and affordability and brought value to my case. I retained Brian Walters to represent me and it was the smartest thing I ever did. Brian was able to guide me through the hardest event in my life with a sense of compassion and focus. As my attorney he reminded me that since there was a child involved it was not just about me or her. Because of the work Brian and his entire staff did on my behalf I was able to work out a mutual agreement that kept our child out of court and resolved our divorce with out a trial and it cost me much less then I had thought it would. Brian and his staff are responsive, professional and 100% on board with what you need to do to move forward in such a difficult time in your life. This is a first class firm that I recommend to my friends and family.

Paul Daley - Austin,TX

Brian Walters and his team are truly professionals! Brian's firm is first class. Having Brian in my corner made all the difference in bringing my family back together! Thanks Brian!!

Katherine Trujillo - Houston,TX

I came to Walters Gilbreath Law Firm hoping to find someone who I could trust to help me through the toughest time of my life - ending my marriage. What I found was that and much more. My attorney, Priyanka Bins, was a phenomenal partner in this fight. When you have to go through something as tiring as a divorce, you really need strong legal protection and a true partnership. She absolutely gave me just that and more. She was very patient, knowledgeable, very responsive and tireless in her effort to fight on my behalf. I highly recommend Mrs. Bins as an attorney during a tough time such as this. I hope I never need the services of a divorce lawyer again but if I do she will absolutely be my only choice.

Melton Cory - Houston,TX

With my case I was at a pure loss and didn't know who to trust who to believe nor who to spend my money on. First of all, the fact the staff (Sheree) called me back on weekend hours listened, educated me, and passionately informed me of the steps needed. I called to schedule my consultation, the information taken so effortlessly afforded the Attorney suitable information to advise me of my next steps. I will definitely be calling this firm back if needed after doing my part. I'm confident this firm is passionate about the law and doing what's right not all about collecting dollars and pushing paperwork. Thank you so much for making me feel confident in the justice system again.
Sincerely,
Now A Single Mother With Hope

S. Brooks-Chinawa - Houston,TX

I am a lawyer. I hired Robert Tsai to do some transactional work for me for my upcoming wedding and marriage. He had come highly recommended. I was very impressed with his professionalism and attention to detail. He brought to my attention things I had not even considered nor would have ever understood without his guidance. I will be sending all of my family law referrals to Robert, because I know any clients I refer are in good hands. Family law is not easy, and attention to detail is crucial. Robert is your go-to-lawyer when you need it done right.

Arnold Lewis - Houston,TX

Robert Tsai and his staff at Walters Gilbreath were incredible in handling my case. I heavily researched and conducted a thorough search for and interviewed with quite a few attorneys before choosing Robert, but within 10 minutes of our initial consultation I knew he was exactly what I needed and who I was looking for. He was smart, diligent and kept me up to speed during each step while promptly responding to all of my questions and concerns, even after my case ended. He was always very well prepared, and always one step ahead. I had very high expectations when I chose an attorney and Robert not only didn’t disappoint in any area during my case, but he exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend Robert Tsai and Walters Gilbreath to anyone seeking an attorney.

Michael Hill - Houston,TX

Robert Tsai represented me in my divorce, and cannot say enough about how knowledgeable, thorough, and straight forward he was with all information. He helped greatly in simplifying the information that was possible and clearly explaining the background on more complicated items. He always worked hard to ensure he was being clear with the information and that I understood what I needed to consider and potential next steps. He addressed possible outcomes, and gave perspective on each. His previous experience with divorce in Texas was greatly appreciated. If I ever have anything else come up in relation to anything that will require legal consultation, he will be the first person I call. He is trustworthy, which helped me personally feel at ease with the overal process. It was much appreciated!

I have only good things to say about Brian Walters and his team. Mr. Walters was able to schedule my consultation quickly and advise me on what steps I needed to take. Brian took the appropriate actions regarding the filing and putting temporary orders in place. This was extremely helpful considering our short timeline to do so. Anytime I needed advice or had questions Brian was always there. Brian and his team have always shown me courtesy and respect. Mr. Walters does care about his clients. Brian is always calm, patient and steadfast, unlike some of the other attorneys I consulted. His relaxed, confident demeanor instills trust and he has demonstrated his trustworthiness throughout the process. You can hire a number of good attorneys in Houston at all price points, I chose Brian Walters because he is the best.

Skylar S - Houston,TX

Went through a divorce that was complicated by a shared business with my ex. His initial consultation sold me as he gave me the best advice regarding how to divide and move forward with the jointly-owned business while protecting my share of assets. He was always available (especially by email early in the morning). He did an excellent job of keeping prices down by spending his time on the right strategy, and then he let his team of paralegals and junior attorneys execute the work (at very favorable rates). His no nonsense and pragmatic approach to challenges, and his rapid actions following, made me a raving fan of Brian Walters. I have and will continue to recommend him without hesitation. He is a true professional with an exceptional understanding of family and divorce law as this is his specialty. Rarely do attorneys get such glowing reviews, but Brian has earned this and deserves the accolades. Keep up the good work Brian and many thanks to you and your team for a job well done! All the best and continued success.

Brian, Jake and all the staff were professional, knowledgeable, encouraging and engaged during my filing for divorce. They received and answered my texts promptly. The staff members were completely encouraging and organized. They play "by the rules", but are prepared to deal with opponents who do not. If you need a divorce, call up this firm! Their services and demeanor are first class. You are going through enough stress, rest here!
 
 

Cindy - Houston,TX

I hired Jake at Walters Gilbreath for a child modification. Jake Gilbreath and his assistant attorney, Robert Tsai, took my case to trial and got me more time with my daughter. Jake was very organized and he always returned my phone calls promptly. They are very professional and are also very personable. I highly recommend them. They are honest and upfront. They will fight for you and listen to you. I highly recommend them and know you will be more then happy with them.
 
 

Hanna hepp - Houston,TX

Brian handled my case impeccably and I recommend him in the strongest possible terms. In a complex case spanning multiple years and international litigation, his advice was always thorough, rational and sage. He keeps his cool through rough patches, and was available for the rare night/weekend/early am calls without fail. You would not believe the number of calls and emails I exchanged with him, and he never made me feel like this was a bother in any way. His partners are also extremely professional and accessible. I should also mention that his billing is very fair and I felt the timekeeping was very accurate. He's your man if you ever need the help! Thanks Brian!

Rone Luczynski - Houston,TX

My attorney, Robert Tsai, who is an associate for Brian Walters was an amazing attorney to represent me in the modification of the custody of my daughter. I am not one to frequently hire an attorney, and initially I was nervous about having to retain Brain Walters Firm to represent me. I looked around at other options for an attorney, but Brain and his firm were highly recommended.
Once I met with Brain and Robert they put my fears at ease. They were always available to answer my concerns and questions. In the end, they were able to provide a positive outcome for my case. That I could not have been more pleased with. I am so grateful for them.
Just as they had assured me, I was able to get the outcome I had hoped for in my case.
If I should ever need legal assistance in the future, they will be the first attorneys I will call.

Angela Stanton - Houston,TX

Ethical, professional, caring, and strong approach. Mr Brian Walters and team Saved my marriage and for that...our daughter will be forever thankful!!!. To top it all he is a great family man.
 
 

Bassam Badr - Houston,TX

I would highly recommend Brian Walters. What I most appreciated about him was his accessibility. In dealing with emotionally charged issues such as divorce and child custody, there were times when I wanted to talk to Brian immediately. He ALWAYS responded in a timely manner and took my concerns seriously. He was honest, professional, and personable. His charges were high for my budget, but in the long run, I think he cost less than my previous attorneys because he did not "nickel and dime" me to death, and his well thought out strategy meant that the case was resolved in my favor and I was able to avoid the additional costs of court. Another benefit for hiring Brian is that you get his staff. It is so calming when going through a lawsuit to have a friendly and kind staff to assist and offer words of encouragement. After many hours of working with them, one almost feels like they have become friends, and this makes the lawsuit process so much more palatable.
 
 

Jennifer Baer - Houston,TX

When my ex-wife filed a contempt case against me for the absolute most ridiculous reason. (My wording in an email about my extended summer possession.)Brian did a good job of getting my case resolved when the opposing council was just trying to draw it out for as long as she could.

Gary Price - Houston,TX

I was very impressed with Brian and his staff. He has been attentive and thorough in his communication with me and others throughout the entire process. I knew he represented the best interest in me. The staff were super friendly and very helpful. I would highly recommend him to my friends and family members without hesitation.

Barney Brasher - Houston,TX

Very professional team, and overall very satisfactory experience, from the initial intake to the very last minute.

We worked with Brian on our adoption case. Brian and his team were very knowledgeable, professional and patient. Although he is super busy, he always managed to reply my emails and answer my questions. He guided us through this whole process and handled all the details perfectly. You do not need to hesitate to work with him if you are in a family law related issue. We are more than 120% positive to recommend him!
 
 

Client Of Brian - Houston,TX

Brian is an excellent, knowledgeable lawyer, who is an expert at family law. My divorce case was very complicated since it involved issues of international child abduction, and obtaining child custody. Brian helped me obtain sole managerial custody of my child, which is very difficult to achieve in Texas. Thanks to Brian, my child can live safely in the United States without the fear of being abducted internationally.

I would also like to add that Raya has been extremely helpful, and studied my case in great detail and helped me understand the workings of mediation, and all the options available to me.

I would highly recommend Brian and his law firm if you are involved in a complicated divorce case especially one concerning child custody issues.

F K - Houston,TX

Attorney Brian Walters was by far an excellent choice when I was going through one of the most difficult times of my life with a divorce after 16 years.

Brian and his entire team exceeded expectations in every facet of my case. Responses to my many questions were immediately follwed up with sound professional advice all the way to the end of the case.

His knowledge of divorce laws and documentation far exceeded the opposing attorneys and I could not be any happier with the outcome.

I would highly recommend Attorney Brian Walters to anyone considering other attorneys. It really makes a great difference when you have a true professional with his knowledge on your side during these times. 
Thank You

Brian Christiansen - Houston,TX

I've worked for and with Brian on several family law matters. His expertise in the area of complex divorces and community estates is unparalleled. While many attorneys are afraid of the courtroom, Brian is at home in front of both judges and juries. However, what really stands out about Brian is his almost constant availability for his clients. Whether it is before the sun rises or long after it has set, Brian is available by phone and email to answer all his clients' needs in a timely manner. If you're in need of excellent family law representation, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Brian Walters.
