P.S. – Special thank you to Jamie M. for the kind words throughout the process. Your words came during times when we needed them the most.
Top flight representation. I had a simple matter, but needed it handled expeditiously, and without requiring me to travel to Houston.
Melissa Aldape and her paralegal Pilar provided me with that and much more. She communicated clearly, advised me about my options, and was generally supportive through a difficult time. I give her the highest recommendation that I know of: I will use her again, and would encourage any of my friends to do so as well.
Should you find yourself in the awful predicament of a divorce, I highly recommend asking to work with Deb Herndon and Valory Falke. My divorce was lengthy and overly contentious (I’m not sure there is another kind). These ladies would talk me off of the ledge and we’d find a way to solve the issue at hand. We were thrown a couple significant curve balls and Deb never wavered. I always felt confident that in the end there would be a fair and equitable dissolution to my marriage. There was and it is due to these ladies being diligent, prepared and extremely competent.
I highly recommend Ms. Dale and her team. Ms. Dale is helping me through a difficult divorce and custody case. She is very knowledgeable, experienced, and can quickly make decisions. I am very impressed with her honesty and willingness to fight for her client. She is providing excellent legal advice and compassionate support during a very distressing time.
