Teresa is an excellent lawyer honest, very professional, helps her clients til the end & wins her cases.
I had a ticket that was 2 felonies plus spouse had 2 as well each one was jail time. Everything got dismissed we just paid a fine each. All the comments people are posting are not true. Teresa is not that type of person. It's sad when people try to ruin someones reputation for doing her job the legal way, that's why she's an attorney. Teresa doesn't take her clients for money like these other attorney's. Teresa has a big heart and cares GOD helps people like her.
I CAN'T EVEN GIVE HER A SINGLE STAR BUT I HAD NO CHOICE AND HAD TO PICK FROM ONE TO FIVE.
THERESA IS THE MOST IRRESPONSIBLE UNETHICAL ATTORNEY I HAVE EVER HEARD OF.
FIRST OFF, SHE HAS NO OFFICE. WHEN WE RETURNED TO "HER OFFICE" TO FIRE HER, WE WERE TOLD THAT IS NOT HER OFFICE. WE WERE ALSO TOLD THAT THEY LEND HER THAT OFFICE SPACE WHEN SHE MEETS WITH CLIENTS. I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF AN ATTORNEY THAT HAS NO OFFICE.
SECOND, SHE NEVER RETURNS CALLS; EVEN WHEN SHE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE WORKING FOR US, SHE NEVER BOTHERED TO ANSWER OR RETURN OUR CALLS.
THIRD, SHE WAS HIRED AND THEN FIRED AND NOW SHE REFUSES TO RETURN MONEYS THAT WERE NOT ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE ITEMIZED STATEMENT HER "PARTNER" PROVIDED. HE'S THROWING IT ON HER, AND SHE JUST WILL NOT RETURN OUR CALLS.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO NOT HIRE HER EVER.
Had an "impossible" case: father seeking sole-custody. Teresa was upfront about obstacles, helped through every step, responded to any questions or concerns very quickly and was just a joy to work with. Got full custody of my daughter a month ago and Teresa has been checking in on us and answered any questions that remain very quickly. Had the case gone differently, I still would recommend her!
II, and my family, have used Ms. Villarreal in a variety of capacities. She was thorough, honest, knowledgeable in every way. She kept us informed as to what to expect at every step, and was diligent on our behalf in every way. She takes her duties as an Officer of the COurt very seriously and is an asset to her profession.
I have used Teresa Villarreal several times over the past 7 years. She has done everything from putting together contracts, to collecting unpaid invoices for my business, she has defended several traffic cases for me as well. I have referred her several times to business associates and friends. All of whom have been completely satisfied with her work.
