I interviewed 3 other attorney’s before retaining Randall Warmbrodt, about 6 months ago. I chose Randall Warmbrodt because I felt like he and his staff were very professional and on point.
Going through a divorce after 9 years of marriage is a very stressful time and it was new territory for me. Mr. Warmbrodt and Ms. Chandler Winslow truly had my children and my best interest at heart. It was a lengthy battle and I was often feeling very defeated by the actions of my ex to the point where I just wanted to give in, just to be done with it. They were very patient as well as candid with me and took the time to explain what some of my “hasty decisions” could mean for my children and me in the future.
I would highly recommend Mr. Warmbrodt if you are dealing with an irrational ex and child custody issues because he is extremely knowledgeable, organized and will take the time to make sure you are kept informed about your case.

Out of panic and fear that our case would be dismissed, I contacted the court coordinator to request a trial date and explain our situation. However, I was not aware that my communication did not follow the rules regarding ex parte, and as a result, my email was forwarded to Warmbrodt and OC. This caused Randy to go over the edge, and he immediately drew up withdrawal paperwork claiming that I did something illegal by contacting the court. The fact is that it would have NEVER occurred to me to even think about contacting the court had Randy not pushed us around so badly that we truly thought our case was going to be dismissed.
Randy missed a filing deadline leading up to our first court appearance, and it was only by the grace of God that the Judge made a spontaneous ruling granting us temporary custody of one of the children involved in the case. All the preparation work we did was for nothing, but we were billed just the same.
Similarly to what other dissatisfied, former clients have reported, we too: received threats of withdrawal when they wanted payment and we were up against a court deadline, had important questions and requests ignored when a payment was due, had filings done the very last minute while also being threatened that they would withdraw if we questioned the firm, had multiple people handling our case and who racked up hours of billing for internal meetings, and the list goes on.
I wish we had researched more before picking this firm. We would NEVER recommend them to anyone. STAY AWAY FROM THIS FIRM! We are also planning to report them to the Bar as I believe this firm's practices are unethical as they threaten, extort and prey on people during their most vulnerable time of need.

The best decision I made during my divorce was to hire Mr. Warmbrodt and his firm for a divorce and child custody battle. I called in and he called me back to do a consultation that day. In the midst of difficult decisions he was instrumental in many ways that helped my case by:
1. working through the dissolution of a marriage of 12+ years and
2. helping guide me the best way possible to limit the collateral damage for my children and income.
3. helping educate me how to protect my children regarding issues of alienation
4. protecting my future when dealing with a high conflict divorce
5. position me with measures to reduce legal abuse
6. equip me with information to help my children and myself to keep my family healthy and strengthen our family bond during and after divorce.
Randall Warmbrodt and his entire staff were organized, timely, and very knowledgeable and professional every step of the way. If I had any choice available in regards to divorce or especially child custody; I would highly recommend Mr. Warmbrodt and his firm.

Child custody is an emotional drain. Randy and his staff were there for me every step of the way to assist my family. If you want someone that knows the law and knows the Collin County courts...hire this firm.

Do yourself a favor and do not hire Randy Warmbrodt. I retained Mr Warmbrodt for a family law case. What I quickly found out is that he is all about racking up your bill. I never questioned what activities he billed for, but I did question how much time he billed me for. When I did that, he called me, berated me and called me an M-F'er. To show you how paranoid he is about his practice, he apparently records all phone calls into his office and I'm pretty sure I paid to have those messages transcribed.
I had a total of 6 paralegals work on my case and 3 other individuals in his office in less than 6 months. I constantly had to deal with a different person who knew nothing about my case. When I complained about it, he said "the work goes to the first person who receives it". Not a good way to run a practice or provide service to your client in my opinion. I asked him why he has such turnover in his office. He said that he doesn't tolerate mistakes and when somebody makes one, he fires them. Clearly, he holds his staff to a level of perfection that he can't meet himself.
Ultimately, his legal guidance ended up putting me in a bad situation and we parted ways. Not, however, until he had charged me thousands of dollars in fees.
The smart decision is to STAY AWAY from Randy Warmbrodt!

Stellar service! This is the best experience I have ever had with an attorney. He is aggressive to win your case, knowledgeable, very efficient staff and delivers results. He and his staff are on top of your case. They contacted me regularly for an update on simple matters and responded immediately to my inquiries.
For anyone who says he is money hungry- I can assure you he is not! He took my case out of Compassion for the circumstances and has handled it with efficiency and excellence. He took an initial 2.5 hours with me to go over options and asked me to consider the direction overnight. He asked to see a picture of the children involved and obviously has a tender heart for his cases. Like all of us, he gets paid to work, but it is clear that his passion in life is practicing law for the betterment of others and not money.
He is my FIRST choice and I would recommend him to anyone in need of powerful results!

I had a fantastic experience with Warmbrodt & Associates. From the first face to face meeting with Mr. Warmbrodt, to working with his paralegal, to filing the paperwork, to finalizing everything with the court, they always handled things in a quick and professional manner. It was very refreshing to be treated so well and they truly understood and respected the situation I was in and how quickly I wanted things done. I would use them again in a heartbeat! Thank you Mr. Warmbrodt and staff for being so professional, helpful and easy to work with!

Read these reviews then walk away. I had a very simple case, my ex did not have legal representation and was told based on initial consultation, it wouldn't be more than about $2500. Turned out to be about $6500 + even after writing off non-sense charges for me. I initially filed in May, and it wasn't until December that they even filed a decree. I contacted them about 6 times with never a response or was told that someone would contact me immediately, which resulted in never hearing from them and then I would have to follow up again. When you finally did get a response, you got billed for it. Every phone call I got was from a different paralegal, secretary, book keeper, you had no idea who was even doing anything with your case. I was told I could be divorced in 60 days and it was a year before I could even get out from underneath this, however I had every piece of paperwork filled out within the first 30 days with the exception of the "Kids Sake" class taken. I never even received info on this but heard about it from my ex, who was given the info but not me...the client!! I had too much money invested or I would have walked away from the beginning. He tells you everything you want to hear at the initial consultation. I wished I had read the reviews because all my complaints are the exact same as what is written. Their response is terrible, they charge for ridiculous fees & one person will send you paper-work when you have already filled it out and turned it in. Stay away is all I can say

I spent over $8,000 before I dropped this clown. They gave my case no attention, and only care about inflating the bill. They did nothing when the temporary orders where not followed, and didn't even set up the agreed mediation required in orders..

Used this lawyer in my divorce. Didn't keep me informed of expenses along the way as I asked. Lots of surprises. Lots and lots of charges. Surprised with an outrageous bill at the end. Would never, ever consider using this guy ever again. Horrible law firm. They even continued to try to bill me after I told them that they were thru and I did not want any follow up work. Horrible firm.
