    If you are looking for a very well-respected experienced attorney, then look no further!
    I have been in and out of court with my son's father for the last six years. I had a very unfortunate event with my other infant child (my son's little sister) having a severe chromosomal deficiency which kept her in Texas Children's Hospital in Houston until she passed at 6 months. During that very emotionally weak time my son's father saw an opportunity to take me back to court with a fictitious and fabricated evidence. I was served with papers of the hearing at the Roland McDonald House while my daughter was in the hospital and we had the court hearing one month after my sweet daughter passed. I was literally still in shock and standing in court without any representation. Without the ability to present my case I was unable to provide documentation to disprove the father's false accusations. I had been the primary parent all of my son's life and then in that unprepared moment it was changed over to his father.
    So, one month after I lost my daughter in the hospital, I lost custody of my son in court. This created a huge emotional distress on my son's life as he went from only being in preschool two days a week to losing his sister, changing his primary residence to his father, and being placed in full-time daycare for the first time in his life.
    I consulted with many lawyers and finally put my complete faith in James "Jake" Gilbreath's Law Firm. He lined up the appropriate experts and reviewed my case that James "Jim" Piper who agreed to serve as co-counsel. These two attorneys worked seamlessly on my case and started preparing litigation to discredit the prior ruling.
    Jim Piper is straightforward and does not ’babysit’ you. During meetings you have to listen to him carefully and answer his questions precisely. He assists you in all preparation but you have to follow his instruction, be responsible, and most important truthful. As an attorney, he is exceptionally attentive to details and diligent in preparation. He took my case seriously.
    I have had many experiences where I would have to remind past lawyers of the details with my case. Mr. Piper ALWAYS recalled every detailed event of my case and would advise what appropriate steps would be taken next.
    If you are looking for a very well-respected experienced attorney, then look no further! Jim Piper is the most intelligent, seasoned attorney you could ask for. He has compassion and fights for justice to be heard.
    Mr. Piper's office organized all the investigated fictitious discovery documents for a trial with jury. Jim Piper produced solid evidence to the jury and court which left only the RIGHT decision to be made. My son was placed back in my primary care. I've never felt more empowered with the truth and so proud to have lawyers that could change the wrong back to right.
    I am forever grateful to Mr. Piper.

    He is well respected in the courtrooms, offices, and halls of the courthouse enabling him to manage court processes well.
    Jake Gilbreath has been extremely helpful and impactful in my recent divorce proceedings. Initially my divorce was amicable, but degraded quickly with legal wrangling on the part of my wife's counsel. Immediately after Jake was engaged, things snapped back to a realistic agenda and a prompt progression timeline.

    It was quite clear to me that Jake has keen legal insights that allowed me to take the best and shortest path through the divorce quagmire that had developed. Specifically, Jake quickly detailed options for me, which included not only traditional approaches, but creative elements as well. At the same time, he tempered expectations with what was realistic, and most expeditious. This made it much easier to determine my best course of action.

    It was also apparent that Jake is very effective in the courts of Travis County. He is well respected in the courtrooms, offices, and halls of the courthouse enabling him to manage court processes well.

    His aggressive, tenacious, but also fair approach, served my interests and objectives well, and I was able to reach a settlement that was more than satisfactory. I cannot recommend Jake more highly. If ever any of my friends or cohorts find themselves in need of representation, I will surely encourage them to contact Jake.

    They are thorough and respond very quickly to messages.
    I have nothing but good things to say about Brian and his staff. They are thorough and respond very quickly to messages. I have been though 4 attorneys since 2007. Only one out of those four were worth the rates they charged. It was all about money to them. Not their client. I did quite a bit of research to find a good ethical attorney and I believe that Brian and his Associate Attorney, Kaitlyn are exactly that.

    A true professional with an exceptional understanding of family law!
    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 and Jake listened carefully to my situation. They prepared all appropriate court documents and filed them the next day.
    Brian and Jake listened carefully to my situation. They prepared all appropriate court documents and filed them the next day. Their staff was pleasant to deal with and very organized. Although I was under a great deal of stress from my spouse's emotional abuse, their prompt and appropriate legal actions on my behalf immediately calmed the situation. I deeply appreciated their availability and prompt answers to any questions I had. They do things "above board" and "by the book", but are prepared for all the dirty players they come up against. You are under a lot of stress in a divorce. Hire this firm and you will Not have to stress about the legal stuff. They truly have your back.

    Thank you is a small word for what you and your staff have done to help me reunite with my son!
    I can start by saying that I am a father of a 15 yr old son. I contacted Brian and his staff for legal services. In the beginning I paid a consultation fee and explained to Brian my situation. I told Brian I reside in a different state over 1000 miles from my son's residence and Brian being very confident as he is, told me "it would not be a problem". Brian and his legal staff replied to emails in a quick response and returned phone calls in a timely manner. Honestly, I thought it was going to be a long-term custody case but ended quicker than we expected. To be honest I have NEVER met Brian and his staff in person, we only knew each other by phone and email. Brian I still hope to meet you and your great staff in person one day! Thank you is a small word for what you and your staff have done to help me reunite with my son. I highly recommend Brian and his law firm and would give them a 10 STAR rating!!!

    If I should ever need legal assistance in the future, they will be the first attorneys I will call.
    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 Brian Walters Firm to represent me. I looked around at other options for an attorney, but Brian and his firm were highly recommended.
    Once I met with Brian 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. 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.

    Good job of getting my case resolved!
    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.

    Extremely thorough, straightforward, and professional!

    I hired Brian and his team to represent me for a Texas divorce, which ended up being considerably more difficult and lengthy than anticipated. Upon my first meeting with Brian, I came away with a sense of complete confidence in his knowledge and experience, and he proved this over and over throughout the 9-month divorce process.

    I can't say enough about how responsive and accessible that Brian and team were during the entire process. There was never a single time when Brian and Raya weren't accessible or able to get back to me within a couple of hours of when I contacted them. Brian and Raya always were extremely thorough, straightforward, and professional. Even when I was upset with moves that the other side made, Brian's calm demeanor and counsel were always spot-on and helped me keep things in perspective. In the end, I achieved a mediated settlement with Brian's hands-on help that was acceptable to me.

    After the divorce was final, I have continued to have difficulty with my ex-wife, and Brian has continued to be accessible and extremely helpful with helping me deal with things. I would not hesitate to recommend Brian and his team with any type of divorce or family law legal need. I am thankful that I made a very good decision to choose the Walters Law Firm to represent me.

    One hundred percent willing to fight for what is right for you!
    One never anticipates the day that life will get in such a terrible mess, then despair comes, and the feeling of hope slipping away comes crashing in. All of the whirlwind of emotions and uncertainty goes away once meeting with Brian Walters and his team. My situation with gaining custody of my daughter was a difficult one, to say the least. Having dealt with my ex-husband's lawyer who apparently made false moves, it was a breath of fresh air working with Brian. Facts will always reign the truth, and his team diligently made an effort to ensure that substantial factual evidence drove the case. Although my ex-husband and I did settle out of court, I will call Brian Walters in a heartbeat if or when the situation of life shows it's ugly face again. If you need someone that is one hundred percent willing to fight for what is right for you, then the only simple task to complete is to pick up the phone and call The Walters Law Firm.

    Truly to sum it up in one word, FANTASTIC.
    All of the reviews given towards this man are absolutely accurate and warranted---Brian and his staff were the epitome of team workers and never left me in the dark or uninformed on the process/issues proposed by opposing counsel.

    Straightforward and honest!
    Brian has assisted me with a complex divorce and custody dispute. I am glad that I chose him as my attorney, because his sharp acumen, his lucid analysis of facts and his foresight have been crucial in helping my decision making in a moment in which I was too inclined to follow emotions more than rationality. Brian is straightforward and honest in answering questions and keeping expectations proportional to the real potential outcomes of legal actions. This helps his clients to make well informed choices.

    Truly worked for the best interest of my child.
    I called Brian the moment my ex husband sued me for more custody of our son and he immediately began working on my case. Brian was very prompt to answer my questions and concerns and was easy to work with during our meetings. His assistant, Raya, was absolutely amazing to work with as well. She read into every detail of my case, quickly answered my emails, and continually communicated with Brian. The entire process went very smoothly even though the other party was extremely unresponsive and uncooperative. In the end, my ex was not able to gain any significant custody and was ordered to back pay many months worth of child support. Brian and his team truly worked for the best interest of my child and it was evident in their diligence and outcome of the case! I couldn't be happier with the outcome and I will be coming back with any future legal matters!

    Best divorce lawyer in Houston!

    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.

    The best attorney I have ever had!
    Brian is the best attorney I have ever had. He is highly accessible, and his quickness to respond to my concerns helps set my mind at ease. Family law can often be very emotional for clients, but Brian patiently listens and advises. The staff is helpful, friendly, and competent. Raya's thoroughness and knowledge of my case is impressive, as she actually noticed some potentially important evidence that had been overlooked by my past attorneys. Brian and his staff are professional, personable, and proficient. I would highly recommend this law firm.

    I knew that I was getting great representation and nothing would fall through the cracks.
    I was in need of a divorce attorney when I came across Brian Walters on a couple of different websites. He had many good reviews so I decided to call his office. There was no answering service...no automated system you have to go through...a live person answered. I gave a brief summary of my needs and was told that someone would contact me shortly. Within 5 minutes of hanging up, Mr. Walters called me from his cell phone and we started discussing my case. I could tell immediately that he had a wealth of knowledge and experience. He was very upfront about how he thought my case would go (length, complexity, etc.) and about the expenses that would be associated with my case.
    Every time I had a question or needed some advice, Mr. Walters was exceptionally easy to get a hold of. Usually he would answer his phone directly, or respond to my voicemail with a text within a few minutes.
    I felt very comfortable with Brian Walters. I knew that I was getting great representation and nothing would fall through the cracks. I highly recommend Brian Walters to anyone seeking legal representation.

    We worked with Brian on our adoption case. He is so knowledgeable and patient. Although he is very busy, he always managed to answer our questions and replied our emails as quickly as possible. He is very organized and guided us through this process. He took care of every detail and handled everything so professionally. Without him, we were not able to go through this process so smoothly. We are more than 120% positive to recommend him to everyone on family law related cases. You won't be disappointed.

    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.

Brian is always calm, patient and steadfast, unlike some of the other attorneys I consulted.

You can hire a number of good attorneys in Houston at all price points, I chose Brian Walters because he is the best.

    Professional, kind, attentive and ethical.
    I hired Brian for a modification of custody. Brian and Kaitlyn have both been really great. They keep me up-to-date on everything, listen to me when I get frustrated about a situation and show that they care about what happens to my kids. I have worked with several attorneys since 2009. Brian and Kaitlyn have surpassed everyone I have ever used. They are professional, kind, attentive and ethical, a trait I find lacking in most attorneys. I can also appreciate that they use technology to their advantage. I really like the fact that they do most of their communication and documentation electronically. I have not had a negative experience with this firm and will likely use them in the future should I ever need to.

    He is TOP NOTCH and I give him the highest recommendation possible.
    "Brian is one of the BEST family law attorney's anywhere - stop looking, call Brian and his team..."

    Brian Walters is an EXCELLENT attorney - and I hold attorney's to a very high standard. Brian and his team worked through my divorce (which was and 8 on the "nasty scale") in a manner where I have nothing but great things to say about Brian and his entire team. If you are looking for an attorney who knows his stuff, is an excellent litigator, who is well respected by his peers (including personal friends of many judges, etc. at the courthouse), well then look no further - just call Brian's office. Again, he is TOP NOTCH and I give him the highest recommendation possible.

    He is as sharp as a tack with an attention to detail and can point out every discrepancy in the other party’s testimonies.

    Jim Piper is an outstanding attorney. He was my attorney when I filed for divorce and needed custody of my children arranged and was my trial lawyer when I went back to modify/terminate due to the other parties recent involvement with drugs. He was quick to reply and calmed all my nerves throughout the hearing. He is as sharp as a tack with an attention to detail and can point out every discrepancy in the other party’s testimonies. He had the entire hearing under control and I never once felt uneasy about it. Jim is an excellent trial lawyer.


    Maggie is a very detailed oriented attorney at Walters Gilbreath. While prepping for my hearing, she took her time refreshing herself and memorizing every detail that was important to my case. She was professional and personable throughout my trial. With her extensive history working with families and children, she was a natural.


    Jake Gilbreath has been my saving grace. I can’t begin to explain how much he has protected my children and myself. I have been through the ringer with my ex-husband. As soon as I found out that drugs were involved, I hired Jake again. Within a week, Jake had a protective order in place and drug testing ordered. As soon as the testing came back there was an injunction in place within the hour. Jake always kept my case under control even when the opposing party was being incredibly inconsistent. He was by my side and thoroughly prepped me for depositions, mediation, trials, and what to expect throughout this process. My modification case soon turned into a termination case. Jake worked tirelessly to put everything in order for a successful outcome. He was willing to reschedule a trial even though everyone on our end was ready, just to make sure there was no way the opposing party could not appeal. My case was ruled in my favor and I couldn’t be more thankful for Jake and his team.

    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.
    I was referred to Brian by a 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.

    So easy to work with!
    I could not have asked for a better attorney. I was dreading going through a custody battle, but Brian was with my husband every step of the way. His rates are more than fair, which is something I've never read about ANY attorney. Being a family man himself, he understood and was more compassionate than I could have ever imagined. He stuck by our side and was reassuring yet honest (which is also something I never read when I started looking for attorneys). He and his team go the extra mile and are so easy to work with.I very strongly recommend Brian as an attorney.

    He always gave me honest advice and made it easy to communicate with him through text, email and phone calls.
    Hiring Brian Walters as my Attorney was a terrific fit for me. He is personable, attentive and honest. I hired him for a child custody case that dragged out for a year. He gave me the same attention from day one until the case was brought to fruition a year later. He always gave me honest advice and made it easy to communicate with him through text, email and phone calls. I was concerned with financial cost but never had to worry because he was honest with his billing.
    I have had attorneys in the past that did not have Brian's compassion nor drive. I can tell you that they did not have my best interest at heart. Brian is not like this at all and you will be glad you hired him.

    If you are looking for someone that is honest, respectful, courteous, and extremely responsive, then look no further.
    Listen, if you're reading this, I encourage you to let this be your last review and proceed with hiring Brian. I've worked with some lame lawyers in the past and heard some horror stories and Brian is on the opposite side of that spectrum.
    If you are looking for someone that is honest, respectful, courteous, and extremely responsive, then look no further.
    Brian was very accommodating in handling my case virtually via phone and email. And there was never a point where he was not on top of communicating. Even advising that he was in court and he would get back to me. Responding to emails late at night. Or calling on his cell. How nice is that from a lawyer?
    I just can't say enough nice things about Brian. You really have to experience him for yourself.

    Divorce is ugly. I hope I never go through that again. But Brian helped guide me through it and if I ever require divorce or child custody services, he will be the only council I will seek.

    Thanks for everything, Brian!

    I have NEVER seen anyone work as hard as Brian does!
    I feel so fortunate to have walked into his office instead of just another attorney. I am certain that the success I achieved in my divorce is due 100% to Brian and his expertise.

    He reassured me that I would get through such a difficult time and eased all of my fears.

    I have NEVER seen anyone work as hard as Brian does! I was blown away.

    He also surrounds himself with the best staff as well. I frequently left his office saying to myself "I hope I have employees like that one day"..lol...seriously.

    I never had to contact him...his office was so good that they always contacted me and led me in the right direction every step of the way.

    Brian and his staff are kind, easy to work with and brilliant.

    If you are in need of a super attorney...HIRE BRIAN D. WALTERS!!!!

    He is the best and I will NEVER hire anyone else. I was so so pleased!

    This is a first class firm that I recommend to my friends and family.
    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.

    He always treated me with the utmost respect.
    Brian Walters is an amazing attorney. This review is going to be slightly long, so please bear with me, but I feel a short review would not do proper justice to how well Brian handled my divorce case.

    By the time I contacted Brian Walters, my divorce case had been dragging on for over seven months with no resolution in sight, and I felt that my attorney at the time was not properly representing my interests. I called Brian's office and was immediately connected with Brian. He spent over an hour on the phone with me listening to the particulars of the case, and explained to me how he would handle my case going forward. He even advised me on how to handle removing my previous attorney from the case.

    After that first phone call, I felt like I was in control of my case for the first time since I had filed for divorce. I removed my previous attorney from my case and got Brian a retainer fee (which was very reasonable). I met Brian at his office, and was very impressed by the friendliness and professionalism of both Brian and his staff. After speaking with Brian for half an hour, he had revised documents filed with the court, a trial date set, and a strategy to close my case. He then (very professionally), contacted my ex with a settlement offer. Unfortunately, my ex was unwilling to settle, so we took the case to trial before a judge. Brian made sure I understood the process before hand, and was extremely competent, poised and professional. Mr. Walters was able to complete my divorce case (with a favorable resolution for me) in less than two months.

    Beyond Brian's excellent understanding of family law, his consummate professionalism, and his unflappable confidence, he is also very accessible. At no point during my case did it take more than 20 minutes for him to respond to me - even on weekends and while he was on vacation. Additionally, he always treated me with the utmost respect and made it very clear that it was his top priority to represent my interests to the best of his (considerable) abilities.

    If you have need of a family law attorney, do yourself (and your kids, if applicable) a favor and call Brian Walters - you won't regret it.

    I got more than I ever expected!
    I am so thankful I had Piper & Turner take my case. Going through a divorce is one of the hardest things anyone can undergo,but having attorneys like Jim and Whitney helped the process by being compassionate to my situation and understanding what I was undergoing. There were also very responsive to my communications and available when I needed them. Whitney listened to my requests as the client while making sure that I exercised all rights available to me. Jim, Whitney and Gina were always professional and friendly. They were respectful of my needs and situation. Best of all, I won my case and got more than I ever expected.

    Far exceeded by expectation!
    Brian Walters and his team provided a service which far exceeded my expectation given the difficult and stressful nature of a divorce.
    From the very beginning Brian took time to listen to my concerns, provide advice that was fair, and kept me informed of every situation and obstacle ultimately crafted a divorce decree which allows me to live the rest of my life in peace and dignity.
    His firm has very specific methods for how to document the division of property, which greatly facilitated understanding of the assets accumulated over the years, and for documenting the child support provisions describing how my son’s well-being was going to be assured. In turn this allowed me to carry on conversations with my ex-wife throughout the divorce process which was relatively free from emotions (as much as one can under the circumstances) concentrating on the facts.
    Ultimately my divorce was significantly less stressful and painful than what I imagined it would be in great part because of how Brian and his team managed the entire process while treating me with respect and empathy without passing judgment.
    Brian is a true professional of the legal profession which I highly recommend. If you are looking to hire a divorce attorney you owe it to yourself to make an appointment with Brian and discuss your particular situation with him as you shop around for a divorce lawyer before you settle with someone else.

    An immediate advantage with your case!
    I hired Brian after working with other family law attorneys who made promises they simply were not able to keep. The difference between Brian and other attorneys specializing in this field is staggering. Brian's professionalism, calm demeanor, and knowledge of family law truly sets him apart. It is obvious from how he is treated and revered by opposing counsel, courtroom personnel, and others in this field that he has worked hard to earn their respect and it is well deserved. Simply walking into a courtroom with Brian at your side gives you an immediate advantage with your case. He is one of those rare attorneys who actually listens to their client, gives common sense advice, and follows through with what he says he will do. I cannot recommend Brian highly enough.

    Without a doubt, one of the best attorneys around.

    Brian is without a doubt, one of the best attorneys around. From our first phone conversation through the end of my case, Brian kept me informed every step of the way. When I first contacted Brian, I was actually already represented by another attorney who I was extremely dissatisfied with. Brian took the time to review the specifics of my situation, and made several insightful suggestions that immediately gained my trust. Once I hired him to represent me, my case immediately turned in my favor. He was extremely knowledgeable and also made me feel valued both as a person and as a client. If you need legal representation in the realm of family law - do yourself a favor and call Brian.

    Extremely satisfied!
    I was having trouble with my ex-wife following the visitation orders from our then divorce/child custody decree. I know it may sound strange but I was having a problem with my ex-wife not exercising her right of visitation whereas our son was wanting to visit with his mom. The original attorney that I used for the original divorced had stopped practicing family law and I was in need of an attorney that would pick up the case. With so many attorneys’ out there and on the internet I closed my eyes, rolled the dice and picked one. Brian Walters was the attorney that I selected. Upon my initial consultation with Brian, he immediately made me feel comfortable by not “diving” straight into the problem but rather taking the time to get to know me as a person and not as a potential paying client. Long story short, Brian was able to fix the visitation problems PLUS he was able to increase the child support that I was not aware there even a problem with. Brian’s family law expertise is something that I have recommended to others and I will continual to recommend to other. If you’re looking for a good family law attorney, look no further, Brian Walters is your man

    Hire them! You will not be disappointed!
    I've had the pleasure of knowing Brian and his family for over 20 years. He's an incredibly smart, trustworthy and driven person. When my wife of 20 years decided to end our marriage, I was devastated to say the least. At first, I had hired a local attorney. I quickly realized my wife was out to take our 2 year old adopted son away from me and force the sale of our beautiful hillcountry home, a home my father and I spent years building ourselves. For a reason I could not understand, she was out to take everything. Although my son was the number one fight, my original attorney was pressing me to meet my wife's demands of forcing the house to sell within two weeks of her filing. That was the lowest point of my life. That was the point I reached out to Brian. Brian was amazing. It was a Friday night when he received my plee. By Saturday he had sent me a text to ease my mind. Sunday eve we spoke on the phone and he assured me that fairness could be achieved. He assured me that I was not going to lose my son, and, the house and my retirement could be kept. Although Brian could not take my case personally, he conference called me at 7am Monday morning with his new partner Jake Gilbreath. I immediately fired my original attorney and hired Jake to represent me. THE BEST DECISION I EVER MADE! I lived in our home for 3 months with my wife under the painful threat of losing everything. I only lived there to be close to my son. My wife was out to destroy me. I had no comprehension of why, at that point the only thing I had to hold on to was my faith in Brian and Jake and their knowledge of the legal system. On the day of mediation, Jake was extremely calm. I was a mess. My wife put us through a painful mediation. I was firm on one stance, I was willing to go to court and lose everything just to keep my son. I don't think my wife realized what she was doing. Our mediation lasted for 14 hours. Throughout the process Jake was brilliant. His attention to detail was amazing! He caught a number of things that if went unchecked would have caused a lot of problems. In the end, I received a modified SPO that gave me a life with my son. I got to keep the house. I just took over the payments. I kept my retirement and 1/2 our stock portfolio. It's been over a month now since mediation. Throughout this process I was in contact with numerous friends either going through a divorce or recovering from their divorce. Every single on of those friends were absolutely amazed at the results Brian and his firm accomplished. I owe my new life and the life with my son to Brian and Jake. Hire them! You will not be disappointed!

    Brian and his partner worked creatively.
    I first came to Brian back in early 2001. My daughters and I had just fled from their biological father who lived in another state. I had gotten a divorce in the state from which we fled, but it was fast and many things needed clarification. Protective Orders were the first priority. Brian D. Walters and his team took immediate control when my daughters and I desperately needed help. He secured Protective Orders, got the divorce moved to Texas and cleaned up the loose ends which further reinforced our safety and security.
    I soon remarried a wonderful man who became an amazing father to my girls. Not long after that we had another baby girl making us a happy, loving and very busy family. There have been years of laughter and joy. Brian and his team made that possible for us.
    Fast forward 12 years.
    On May 5, 2013 tragedy struck. Our two eldest daughters had just returned from college when my husband suffered a fatal heart attack right before our very eyes. It was sudden and is still is a horrible shock to everyone who knew him. He was a healthy middle aged man who had never been diagnosed with anything serious, let alone heart disease. The girls and I are still grieving. Our youngest is only 12.
    As if our sudden loss wasn't enough to bear, my husband's ex-wife(with whom he had NO children) resurfaced with a lawyer and her 2002 divorce decree making claims of entitlement to survivor benefits, his estate, etc. This lady was a stranger to us before my husband's funeral. We knew she existed, but had never before met her. It was time to call Brian again.
    Even though this person had case law in her favor and a good chance of getting what she wanted, Brian and his partner worked creatively with our probate attorneys and they were able to stop this lady from taking anything more from my husband and our family.

    A great attorney and a great person!

    Brian Walters is the Best Family Law Attorney in Houston in my book!

    Brian Walters is a great attorney and a good person. I came across Brian after I fired my first attorney. I was really behind an eight ball due to my first attorney. I called Brian on Sunday and he actually answered the phone and had a lengthy conversation with me regarding my case. He didn't brush me off nor ask me to call during business hours. Turns out he is like that even after you pay him his retainer. Imagine that, an attorney who still works hard after a retainer is given. Yes Brian, you're a rare gem!

    I was very leery of any attorneys due to what my first attorney had done. Brian erased my fears in our first conversation. It was refreshing to hear the truth on the possible outcomes of my divorce. Brian explained the family law code to me gave me the best case scenario and the worst case scenario.. He used his 17 years in the field to give me what he thought may happen. He didn't make any crazy promises. In fact the only promise he made was that he would work hard on my case.

    The process of getting a divorce is not a pleasant experience. I believe when there is a child or children are involved as in my case, it is a especially hard, stressful and at times frightful, even more so when you are a guy. Brian was completely honest about what to expect. He was very informative. Fear is caused typically by the unknown as much of a divorce is just that unknown. He knew the family law code inside and out and filled me with information which really helped me understand the options he was giving me and helped make logical decisions not emotional ones.

    Brian went out of his way to answer any question I had and at times he calm my nerves and settled me down when the other side did something to make me mad. He got me through the emotional roller coaster that a divorce is. He took time out of his vacation to answer my calls, texts and emails. Brian even spoke to me for 30 minutes on the 4th of July.

    He was able to speak and negotiate with my wife's attorney which helped lower my costs by staying out of the court room. He also caught a few things they were trying to sneak in where my previous attorney would of screwed me.

    Brian and his office staff are up to date on technology. They use an awesome web portal that allows discussions, uploading documents and has a your account statement right there. It was truly an awesome experience being able to have so much information regarding my case right there.

    His office is just as great as Brian is. They are very kind and sensitive to you when you call the office or they call you. They are quick to respond to questions with truthful and legit answers. They do not blow you off. I felt that the cared about each individual and didn't just peg you as another case number.

    Halfway through our divorce, my wife and I started to communicate something my previous attorney absolutely told me not to do. I spoke to Brian regarding communication with my wife and he supported it as long as I didn't give out any vital information and to mainly listen. I can see why most attorneys tell you NOT to talk to the other half during a divorce because it might cost them some billing fees. My wife and I ended up going to dinner and we've not been apart since! We ultimately asked to have our divorced tossed out. Brian was happy for us and even helped do that. I know that each divorce is different and may not be savable, I just wanted to point out that Brian was tough when he needed to be for my legal protection and he was able to switch gears and help both my wife and I when we decided to resume our marriage.

    At the end of the day, Brian Walters is a great attorney and person. I typically don't do online reviews however I would be doing Brian and those who are in need of a great family law attorney a disservice by not sharing my great experience with a terrific attorney.

    As a business owner, I sure wish he did business law!

    The best family law attorney!

    Mr. Walters is currently handling my divorce case. He is amazingly dedicated to his client. I first e-mailed him at 4 am in the morning to ask for an immediate divorce and requested for protective orders (from an abusive spouse). At 7 am, he e-mailed me to be prepared to go to his office and got the paper work started. At 10 am I arrived at his office. His assistant Haylee is great and awesome. With Mr. Walters and Haylee's help, all of the paper works were ready within 2 hours of arrival to his office. Within a couple hours afterward, the protective orders were approved by the judge and divorce paperwork was filed in court. All of those were taken care of in less than 24 hours. The children and I are very grateful for the quick process since our safety is on the line. Really, Mr. Walters is a great Attorney. He is responsive to answer the e-mails and questions through the process, even on the weekends. If he is not in his office, he always has someone else who is reliable and knowledgeable to take care of you while he's gone, so you don't have to wait in agony.

    My family, not my case, was their main focus.
    I was treated as though I was a top priority and nothing in the office was more important than my case and family. Jake listened to my needs and explained clearly in terms I understood (without a law degree) how those needs could be met without passing judgment or making me feel stupid/like I was asking too much. My family, not my case, was Jake's main focus.

    The final result was a Big Win!
    My modification of child relationship has been an on-going battle for about 20 years. I hired Jake about a year ago and now have full custody of my two boys. His leadership, work ethic, and teamwork was beyond approach. He ensured the "best interests" of the boys were his #1 priority. It was very evident that Jake and his Team gave it 110% in every aspect of this case. They did not leave any stone unturned. The final result was a "Big Win" and this was due to the testament of Jake's professionalism. I would recommend him and his Team in a heart beat.

    Jake Gilbreath is a world class lawyer who is smart as hell as well as a very smooth "people person." He takes a disciplined strategic approach and knows how to be tough but fair. He is in it to win it but never throws gasoline on the fire. Understands complex family dynamics and handles sensitive issues with finesse and warmth. His work style is upfront and pragmatic and he stays highly focused. I hired him to help with a difficult custody issue and am thrilled with the outcome. The positive impact on my son's life as a direct result of Jake's expertise will never be forgotten.
    Jake's team is super professional with great communication skills and fast turnaround times.
    He is respected at the Courthouse and I can see why. A great advocate to have on your side. I recommend him wholeheartedly.

    I never doubted being in good hands.

    I felt so lucky to have been referred to Jake Gilbreath while being through such a hard marriage and toxic situation. I was hit very off guard when my husband filed for divorce. There was so much hurt and shock and fear as he quickly hired a successful attorney for fear of how he would be painted.
    The very first time I spoke to Jake, he eased my panic and treated me like a friend yet remained professional and direct. He seemed to truly care right off the bat and instantly gave me the reassurance that no matter what, he would help me through it and it would be ok.

    0ne of the things I respected most about Jake was the honesty that he always conveyed to me. At times, during a difficult time, it is hard to hear some of the possibilities of the outcome of any divorce. I felt Jake gave me worst case scenarios to prepare me, yet came through to truly show me he knew his stuff and was one step ahead.
    He gave me very sound advice and never took on more than what he knew would work out for me. There was a time when I had to decide how far I wanted to take things by going to court. I so appreciated him being able to predict the outcomes based on his experience and offer me a different idea... which was to settle and move on with life! I can't thank him enough for pushing me in this direction. He did still play hard ball when appropriate and Jordan and his staff were wonderful communicators.
    Divorce is such a vulnerable time. I never doubted being in good hands. Jake is sharp, and honest and upfront when needed. I would absolutely recommend him to someone going through the same thing. I need to also comment about how respectful he is to women and how pro- female he is while not being in any way obnoxious, opinionated or tacky. He simply knows how to help when the trauma of divorce is dealt.
    I am so thankful that my children were the first concern and Jake, being a family Man, doesn't like Men who are hateful to Women.

    100% Recommend!
    I had a lengthy case that was extremely complex. My previously lawyer had told me my case was "unwinnable". When my previous lawyer bailed on me when things were rough, Jake made sense of everything. My case had dragged on for 2 years previous to Jake. Within 2 months of hiring Jake, my litigation was over. The thing that really won me over, besides the outcome, was that he clearly invested time in my case when I was not around. I 100% recommend Jake. I truly hope to never need an attorney again, but if I did, Jake will be my first call.

    Jake Gilbreath wasn't the first attorney that I called, but he was the last. Within the first 5 minutes of our first conversation, he validated all of my concerns and for the first time in years, I felt that my son and I were going to be okay.

Most importantly, Jake always had my son's best interest in mind throughout our case.

    He made me believe in justice and fairness again.

    I spoke with many attorneys and had one prior to hiring Jake, and it dragged out for over a year. My ex used Becky Beaver, and many attorneys wouldn't touch my case because of it. She dragged everything, used every single scare tactic and played real dirty just pinning my ex and I against each other in such a nasty way. I lost faith in the justice system and couldn't believe he was able to get away with what he did. He left with all our money and maintained that powerful edge against me. I needed someone who wasn't afraid to fight for me and my children. That person was, and is, Jake Gilbreath. He made me believe in justice and fairness again. He knew every tactic and angle of the opposing attorneys, and it never caused him to bat an eye. He stayed ahead of the game and encouraged me not to give up. Though my ex and his attorney performed some shamefully dishonest, inexcusable and unforgivable maneuvers in the first round that traumatized me, Jake still encouraged me to do what it takes to restore a positive relationship with my children's father because that is what is best for them. His focus is doing whats best for the children and he doesn't care what it takes or who he's up against. If you need someone who is going to fight for your kids, your rights and encourage you no matter what- Jake is the attorney you need. No matter how ugly and dirty the other side played, he never once entertained the thought of playing those games. He maintained his (and my) integrity the whole way through. Something I really needed.

    I encourage you, whether you are a man/woman, father or mother... if you need someone who is good, quick, ahead of the game, fair and who works HARD, don't waste anymore time and just call this guy.

    He saved my family!
    I had an awful contested divorce in the beginning of the year. I met with 3 other attorneys before deciding to hire Jake. As soon as i met Jake, I was impressed. He was confident and knowledgeable on the law, and was an excellent advocate in the courtroom. Jake took depositions of my ex husband, and even stayed by my side when I had a breakdown at mediation. We ended up in trial, and compassionate Jake quickly turned into a bulldog advocate. He was well prepared, quick on his feet, and made me feel confident to have Jake on my side. We were incredibly successful in court, and I owe it all to Jake. He saved my family.

    Jake has been my attorney on my divorce case for more time than I like to remember. A complicated case; Jake always listened to what I wanted even if it seemed contrary to what someone might expect. I trusted (and trust) Jakes counsel and he in turn, listened closely to my wishes and counseled and directed me accordingly.

    VERY good at his profession!

    Jake was my attorney I used for my divorce. He tells you exactly what you are facing and shows you various scenarios that you will face. He doesn't beat around the bush. If you are looking for someone to make you false promises, he is not your guy.

    In my case, he gave me the rundown on the judges and their tendencies as well as which judge we would likely get. Once the judge was announced he told me five things that would happen even down to the fact that this judge would be 30-45 minutes late. He was 5 for 5 on his predictions. Based on the judge he told me what time court would start (30-45 min late was his prediction and it was 40 minutes on the nose), told me what the judge would do off the bat (which was RIGHT into opening statements...correct again), told me the judge would order the two attorneys to chambers (right again), then the judge would tell the other attorney "you need to go out in the hall and settle this" (right), and lastly the judge would disallow some disputed financials. He nailed them all. It was impressive how he had the judge's tendencies nailed. This is from experience IN THE COURT ROOM. He made me feel like everything was under control. If you have never been through a divorce hearing, it is a lonely scary feeling. I can't describe the emotions of that day. Having someone by your side to help you through it and to let you know that the had it all under control is worth it's weight in gold.

    He told me off the bat where he would get me in my settlement and he came within 5% of that number. He is VERY good at his profession. He is a litigator who knows the Travis county system inside and out and that is HUGE when going through a divorce. He was worth every penny I paid him. My ex spent twice the dollar amount on her attorneys than I did and I got very close to what I was asking for half the price.

    Hire Jake. Don't mess around. I waited to hire him and it cost me time with my kids and money while I messed around trying to settle it myself.

    He has never made me feel like anything less than his top priority.
    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.

    During the worse possible time going through what was legally described as a "high conflict" divorce, Mr. Gilbreath was truly the only source of hope for my family and I. He was present, available, and patient. It was clear that he was experienced and unlike most lawyers who drag divorces on and on, his main goal was to get us out a very miserable situation as fast as possible with better results than expected, regardless of how slow the legal system can be at times. We are grateful for Mr. Gilbreath and highly recommend him to families going through a divorce looking for fast and great results.

    I can hardly describe the humanity, strength, compassion, strategy and raw intellect.

    I can hardly describe the humanity, strength, compassion, strategy and raw intellect that Jake brought to my extremely difficult child custody case. I am an attorney and thoroughly researched before I engaged Jake. My situation demanded a carful and sophisticated approach. Helping my son and me obtain immediate relief, while always staying many moves ahead, and with an eye laser-focused on the end result, Jake spent years championing for my son, ensuring he had access to to me, his father.

    Simply said, I retained Jake when my ex-wife irrationally and almost completely restricted my access to my four-month-old son. Jake is a stallion in the courtroom, which proved indispensable in my situation because my son's mother remained steadfast in her unwillingness to compromise. Jake's bold and fearless approach saved the relationship between me and my son.

    Jake also understood the complexities of psychological issues as it related to my ex-wife's behavior. Jake's deep network of professionals provided additional exceptional support in the area of parenting facilitation and psychological evaluations. These professionals had a clear respect for Jake, which was critical in ensuring their contributions remained focused on the overall well-being of my son.

    Lastly, Jake brought integrity to every step of the process. My experience is that a child custody dispute is fraught with impossible situations, especially for an involved father. Because of Jake, I walked through this process with real options, many of which are not readily available through just any attorney.

    Today, my son and I have a great relationship and nobody deserves more credit for that success than Jake.

    I'd hire him again without reservation.

    I really can't say enough good about Jake.

    I went to him when I was in a tough spot and he was very clear about my options, then recommended a creative solution that turned out to be a winner. Jake has a great reputation and rapport with other attorneys which served me well. He made time to speak to me whenever I needed, and steered my case to an expedient resolution. I'm so grateful to Jake for the work he did on my behalf...I'd hire him again without reservation.

    No Nonsense!
    When facing a divorce after a 25-year marriage with modest assets to divide and no minor children, I sought out an attorney with the characteristics of a “fox” not a “pit-bull”. I found Jake to be experienced, smart, goal oriented, creative, compassionate and no-nonsense.

    We were working on a divorce I’d filed as a no fault/ simple case that quickly descended into a contested, combative and tedious nightmare due to tactics beyond our control. Jake stayed above the fray with his eyes on the prize – an equitable settlement.

    When we were forced to a frivolous hearing - he was a fierce advocate in the courtroom. He’s was succinct and to the point and effortlessly found “flaws” in the opponent’s narrative. The judge ruled in our favor.

    If you are facing a divorce, James “Jake” Gilbreath will get the job done, without exacerbating an already adversarial situation. Jake truly went above and beyond in my case – I’ll never forget the compassion, patience and competence of the attorney from Waxahachie, Texas. If you want effective/smart representation – you’ve found it.

    Absolutely phenomenal!
    I was referred to Mr. Gilbreath through a friend. I've often found that references by word-of-mouth are the best. This could not have been more true. Mr. Gilbreath was absolutely phenomenal, I could not have asked for anything more. He got to work right away assisting me with a difficult divorce. Divorces can be financially and emotionally straining to go through, but with Mr. Gilbreath by my side it was a breeze. Mr. Gilbreath was always attentive and responded quickly to any questions, calls, or emails. Mr. Gilbreath ultimately made this entire process as easy as it could possibly be, and gave me a timeframe as to when it would be concluded. The best thing I can to this review is that I will refer Mr. Gilbreath to my closest friends and family.

    Because of his hard work, I was able to achieve a result that kept my children safe.
    I hired Jake to handle a very complex child custody case. Jake was available and passionate about my case. Unfortunately, the case had to go to a contested final trial. Jake was excellent in depositions and in court. He was prepared, articulate, and was clearly persuasive with the judge. Because of his hard work, I was able to achieve a result that kept my children safe.

    The best attorney in Austin!
    Jake is hands down the best attorney in Austin!! I have been in the court system for 3 years and worked with several attorneys. I have never had an attorney so dedicated to fighting for me and my children. From custody issues to child support enforcement - Jake has worked tirelessly on my behalf. He is truly committed to his clients and his passion and work ethic are unparalleled. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing legal council. My children and I would be lost without him.

They are hands down the best family attorney's in Austin and I would highly recommend them to anybody.

    Honest and upfront from the beginning!
    Jake was recommended to me by a friend and it was a good fit for my needs. He was honest and upfront about my options from the beginning. He attempted to contact the other party's attorney to resolve the case before he even took a cent from me. He was prepared for every step of the mediation and subsequent trial yet did not create a plethora of documents that only serve to run up the bill. He used our time wisely and worked within my budget to the best of his abilities to resolve any issues we could prior to heading to court. I trusted that Jake had my best interest in mind at all times. Ultimately, I think that is the most important part of hiring a lawyer because that is what put my mind at ease. Jake is empathetic but not the kind of lawyer who holds your hand every step of the way so if that's what you need, he might not be the guy for you. But if you want a lawyer with a keen mind, a lot of experience, and a through understanding of the law, I can think of no one better. I hope I never need a divorce lawyer again but if I do, Jake Gilbreath is who I would hire without reservation.

    I am forever grateful!
    Jake and his team took my case which was should have been simple but turned out to be much more difficult than expected and they fought beside me at every unexpected turn of events. His team (Elizabeth specifically was my go-to girl) was easy to contact thankfully since I had many questions as I am unfamiliar with the divorce and custody process. I was shocked at their loyalty and dedication to my case and gave me the confidence to fight for my rights and for my child until I received a fair deal. Thank you to you and your team Jake! What you have done for me will echo through eternity, you have saved my relationship with my daughter - and for that I am forever grateful.

    Turned the whole situation around!
    My divorce was a nightmare until I hired Jake Gilbreath. I had been up against Becky Beaver's office for about 8 months with another lawyer before I hired Jake. Beaver's office was bombarding me with huge, long emails and demands that were unnecessary, draining all the money we had as community property. The injustice of it all was killing me. Their office was dragging it out, using all our funds and we weren't getting anywhere, until Jake got on board. Once I hired him, things were swiftly settled and the whole thing was finally over. He not only saved me from spending more money on attorney fees, but he actually saved my ex money too - once we ended all the outrageous time/money coming from Becky Beaver's office. Besides all of that, I really like his demeanor and he actually turned the whole thing into a more positive experience. He had the perfect attitude and he is tough going against Beaver's office - he turned the whole situation around within weeks once he took on my case.

    I tear up when I think about what life would be like if I had not met Jake Gilbreath.

    When I found myself unexpectedly in one of the most harrowing experiences of my life Jake came to the rescue. If you have a child then it goes without saying that your child is a large part of your world. This make for a substantially earth shattering situation when your child is taken from you without your knowledge. Jake and his stellar staff helped get my daughter back and fought tooth and nail for my daughter and myself throughout a very difficult time. And one of the most important things for me was even if the system that I realized very quickly didn't seem especially interested in my rights or privileges I felt Jake and his staff did. I tear up when I think about what life would be like if I had not met Jake Gilbreath. I cannot give enough praise to Jake Gilbreath's immense skill as an attorney in your corner or as a dear friend in your life. If you are looking for a knowledgeable, straight forward, savvy attorney with integrity and grit then make sure to reach out to Jake Gilbreath.

    Best divorce lawyer period!

    Best divorce lawyer period! When I first met Jake, I was looking for an attorney that would help guide me through the process of a very amicable divorce that included a 50/50 custody split for our 3 children. I only needed a simple contract between two individuals and Jake was extremely helpful, guiding me with candid advice on what should be included in the contract, how the legal system worked, and gave me the emotional comfort of knowing that I was protected in the event the case became contentious. We quickly drafted the original agreement and it worked to establish the grounds for my spouse and I to separate households.

    About a year later, things became contentious and some unreasonable demands were being placed on the final divorce decree proposals. I needed help to defend my position and unfortunately Jake was on leave from work due to the birth of a new baby. I was forced to hire a different attorney to represent me and it was the biggest mistake I have ever made. My spouse had hired an aggressive attorney and I went through a period of time where everyone that I knew was subpoena for depositions about the case. I lost my job, went through all of my savings paying for legal time, and was having a difficult time even making ends meet. All I wanted was to mediate our differences and conclude the divorce proceedings, but it seamed that my spouse and her attorney wanted to pressure me to give in to their demands without comprise.

    Then I reached out to Jake and found that he had returned to work and he immediately asked that I come in to catch him up on the case. After a brief 30 minute conference he said that he would take my case and would be sending out notices to the other attorneys. The moment that those emails went out, my nightmare ended. The apposing counsel immediately stopped harassing me with subpoenas and my spouse actually reached out to me and asked that we work on a compromise. It was a total change from the instant that Jake sent notification that he was back on the case. It was literally a few hours later that my spouse contacted me and said "I just heard that you changed lawyers. How about we just mediate this and work it out." I think other lawyers truly respect Jake and act differently when he takes a case.

    Ultimately it took only 3 hours in mediation to resolve the issues, draft the final decree, and finish the divorce. I would highly recommend Jake for anyone going through a divorce. He provides a great service in an industry where some lawyers like to do unnecessary services. Jake is direct and does not waist time at all on unnecessary tasks. If you have a question, he is quick to respond and gives you honest and direct answers. He gives you options and tells you his recommendation, then let's you decide. I had lots of questions and his responses always gave me the feeling that I was safe and protected. Divorce is an emotional and draining experience. Jake makes the process as smooth and as calm as it can possibly be. Thank you Jake.

    You want his team on your side!
    When my husband hired Becky Beaver, I immediately panicked and wondered how I would survive the divorce, both financially and emotionally. Jake was the perfect opposing counsel. Never once did he flinch in the face of her scare tactics. He was the consummate professional, staying away from threats and sticking to firm facts and the law. Not only is Jake an expert when it comes to handling the legal matters involved in a divorce, he truly cares about his clients. Throughout the most emotionally difficult time in my life, Jake was both accessible and empathetic. He kept me calm during the most stressful situations, and was extremely responsive whenever I needed him. If you are going through a difficult divorce, you want Jake and his team on your side!

    If I were you, I'd trust him in a heartbeat.
    I had a cross-country international divorce case going on (India-USA) and Jake stepped in at an extremely crucial point during the case. It was a difficult and complicated case with multiple cases in the 2 countries. He not only took over the case completely, but kept me informed and helped me retain my sanity during my toughest times. Due to his advice and guidance, my daughter and I are finally able to restart our lives. He even helped me locate and find another attorney because of some unavoidable and specific issues. He became my guide, and eventually, my friend - someone I can never thank enough for how much he did for my daughter and me - we are finally safe, thanks to the ball that he set rolling. And the best part is that we always only talked on the phone! I still haven't seen him in person! That's how awesome he is. He's one of the good guys, and a keeper! If I were you, I'd trust him in a heartbeat.

    Always punctual and prepared.
    When Jake took over our case, it had been a thorn in our side for many years. He presented himself in a professional manner in the office as well as in the courtroom. He was respectful of our time, adhering to the appointment times, always punctual and prepared. We felt he retained the facts that were given to him about the case and they were organized and easily accessible if needed. When there were times that we needed to vent, and he was there to listen as well as empathize. He brought the case to a close in a reasonable amount of time and we would hire him again.

    It's because of Jake and his team that I have rights to my daughter.

    Words cannot express my gratitude for James "Jake" Gilbreath and his team. When Jake took on my case, I realized quickly that he was in it to make a difference. His compassion for every human, his passion for equality, his knowledge of the law and his tenacity surpassed what I ever could have expected. Jake and his team kept me updated and informed each step of the way leading to our trial. I never worried about what was going on because of the constant communication either by phone, email or office visits. They made it easy to put my trust in them and relinquish my stress.

    When a relationship ends things can become complex and due to the current Texas Laws same-sex child custody disputes can be especially complicated and challenging when only one parent is biologically related to the child. According to Texas Law this applies to Same-Sex Couples, Non-Biological Parents and Grandparents. After much of my own research I learned that the outcome in these types of cases can be daunting and far reaching, but Jake has made a difference in my life, the life of my daughter and for the future lives of many who face the same challenges.

    Today, it's because of Jake and his team that I won this fight and have rights to my daughter, it's because of Jake and his team that I was given Standing rights. So, if you're looking for an attorney that exemplifies true and honest character, if you're looking for an attorney who will put you first during an already stressful time in your life and if you're looking for an attorney who will give it his best fight, I strongly recommend Mr. Gilbreath.

    Recognized my priorities and made them his.
    Jake really was the perfect attorney for my divorce. Every legal situation is unique, but mine had a special spin on it. My first attorney was being personally harassed by my ex-husband, so Jake took over my case mid-way through. Jake wasn't intimated by the history of threats; he and his firm quickly got up to speed, wasting no time. I was impressed by his tough, yet supportive nature. Jake did an excellent job of standing up for the issues I felt were important, and keeping me aware of all the possible outcomes. I have a young daughter and her custody was the primary issue for the settlement. Jake recognized that, and he kept her safety and health as his concern throughout all negotiations. He made himself available to me at all hours and responded quickly to even the silliest of questions.
    The most impressive thing about Mr. Gilbreath (even more than his "pit-bull" attitude towards my ex-husband), was his ability to help me set priorities. He has an eye for the big picture and didn't let little, petty requests from the other party get in the way of our goals.
    I needed an attorney who wouldn't back down from threats and harassment. I needed an attorney who would make sure that my daughter was safe and healthy. I needed an attorney who would guide me through the most embarrassing, most painful, most stressful period of my life with dignity and respect. I needed an attorney who would recognize my priorities and make them his. Jake Gilbreath did all that.

    A good family man with a great heart!

    I was referred to Jake Gilbreath by a wonderful support group in Austin. I was very pleased with the legal services of Jake and Piper and Turner. The firm as a whole is very professional in what they do. This past year in the midst of domestic violence that was ongoing for a long time I retained the legal services of Jake Gilbreath. We ended up ultimately settling the case in mediation and did not go to trial but the whole process is extremely stressful as one would anticipate. From the getgo Jake was very honest with me. He is not the one to give unrealistic expectations to a client and will prepare you for the worst. With Jake basically “you get what you see”.

    He explained things to me in a way I could understand and sometimes I remember asking the questions multiple times and he never blew me off. He is also very responsive to phone calls/emails and will stay in contact with you throughout the case which was very important to me. My case involved domestic violence and he understood the issues and handled it very sensitively and fought for me and my daughter. I felt that he is a good family man with a great heart. He is more experienced than his age or what his resume suggests and handles things with the utmost maturity. Throughout the trial he was very organized, prepared for everything, was caring and extremely responsive. He did give me lot of legal advices in other related matters that is potentially going to save me a lot of money. A divorce is something that I do not want even my worst of enemies to go through especially with a child involved. Having said this, would I choose Jake if I needed legal services in the future. Absolutely yes, I would choose him in a heartbeat for the above mentioned reasons.

    If you are the good guy in the divorce like me all you need is an attorney like Jake and you will not go wrong with your decision.

    Brian's compassion and understanding of what needed to be done provided a real sense of calm in the heart of a storm.
    I retained Brian Walters for my divorce. Needless to say I had no clue what to do or how to proceed. Brian took the time to consult and advise me of the course of action that would see me obtain the goals I had for the end of the marriage. Since there was a child from the marriage I knew that could complicate the matter. Brian and his team communicated with me on a regular basis and provided a plan that had the best interest of not just myself but my son as well. Brian's compassion and understanding of what needed to be done provided a real sense of calm in the heart of a storm. I have recommended Brian to others as he is an attorney who cares about and acts in the best interest of his clients. You won't find a better attorney for your matter.

    Mr. Walters has been a lifesaver for me. My ex-wife kidnapped my children and the police would not help me recover them using my custody order. I contacted Brian and we were in front of a judge the next day and my children were returned within hours after that. The proceeding family court case that followed was equally impressive. It definitely pays to have the smartest lawyer on your side. Communication with his law-firm is excellent, I have been able to call and talk to him or his staff at anytime. The web portal he uses if very effective for viewing all legal documents and posting questions which he answers even late into the night and on weekends. I can't say enough about his law-firm and would highly recommend him to family and friends along with anyone needing a smart, strong, aggressive lawyer.
