I was charged with a state jail felony and I already have two prior drug charges...everyone I talked to said I was looking at one year jail time or, if I was lucky, 5 years felony probation. I don't have much money, and I have a 5 year old son I care for by myself. His father was killed just over a month ago, I couldn't imagine doing time away from my son...and I def didn't want to have a felony on my record. The night before my court date I asked Abe if there's any way I could do weekend jail and still get deferred, probation is just too much of a risk. He told me not to worry, he would see me in the morning and we can go over our options. Somehow he worked a miracle and got my charge taken down to a misdemeanor with a few weeks of weekend jail! No fines, no testing, no dragging it out on probation for years, and no felony on my record! I dont know how he did it, but I am forever grateful for this man, I would recommend him to everyone, I know I will never use another lawyer besides Mr. Factor. He has been extremely understanding with me about payments, he has never hassled me even when I couldnt pay him anything for 2 months. Any other lawyer would charge me 3x more, and maybe gotten me 5 years probation...also, Abe showed up to court every single time, he was even 15 mins early to my last hearing. You have to trust Abe, there is a reason why he is in such high demand. He is AMAZING at what he does.

Abe Factor is an amazing attorney. He has reprinted my in multiple cases over the term of 15 years and each and every time I was completely satisfied and often greatly surprised with the results of my cases. He has had several charges of mine "No Billed" (or didmisses in lay mans terms) and on every other case gotten me the very best results I could have possibly hoped or far surpassed my or any other reasonable expectation. He is brilliant at what he does and there are no words to express my gratitude or my complete and total astonishment with both he and his staff. He has a wonderful staff and I've always felt as though I have been treated with the personal attention, diligence, and car that a person would hope for from an attorney. Abe has great attention to detail, is diligent, forthcoming, hard working, and honest as to what you can expect based on your personal case. I would and do recommend him as often as I am given a chance to and every single person I have referred to him had been equally pleased with the result and manner in which their case was handled. Thank you.

Hired him for a friend on 9-12-15 it took him 3 weeks for someone for a jail visit. Then my friend didnt fo to court for 2 months. To make a long story short i called n called would leave messages for him call are email me an update. (As i live over an hr away from Tarrant county ) never got any responses . Finally made an appointment all he could say is be patient. Well my friend went to court 6 weeks ago again he's suppose to be released but Abe hasnt acknowledgeed emails nor calls to let us know what is happening with his case. The man is just to busy! His communication sklls are lacking big time. Yeah he does payment plans which makes it convenient that's all i can honestly say. I am seriously thinking about reporting him to the board. If your going to take someone's money then work for your client.

TAKE YOUR MONEY AND FATE ELSEWHERE! Do not hire this super busy lawyer. You will wait about 45mins past your appointment time to visit with him. He has to re read your case files because he has no recollection of who you are and of your case. He gives different information every time you see him. You will never know what's going on. He won't tell you anything to do in outside world to make your self look favorable for court. Oh and court? You won't be going there for monthssssssss!!! Which is good or bad for some cases. The only thing his office is good for is taking your money. They will take a dollar as a payment. But taking your case seriously?? You can forget about that.

If you want your life. Dont put it in Abes hands. I am a girlfriend of his client. I was not satisfied very disappointed actually. I feel he did not do his best and gave up. His office will never call you back. You have to go there everytime in person to get an answer and the line will take forever. If you want someone to trust go with someone else. Trust me.

I am currently a client of Mr Factor. If you are someone who does not want to know a single thing about the plan your lawyer has for your case or if you are ok with no contact from him or his office unless you go to sit in his office after hours for at least 2 hours ,( He is in his office from 5 to 9 or so 4 nights a week and there will be 8 to 10 other people waiting to see him.) I finally sat down and sent an email to the office explaining my story, situation and wants and needs from Abe and questions about my case. And NO ONE ever even acknowledged that they received it. Word of mouth for some reason is a strong resource for Mr. Factor but the first time I sat down to visit with him I started regretting my decision. As he was my bondsmen also, I was already into this office for $1400.00 so I stayed. He has far too many clients to give them good service or to make them feel secure and calm about what if anything he is doing for them. I was actually told by a member of his office. " Just pay Abe what you owe him and let him do his job, don't worry about anything unless we call you". Questions either cannot be answered by his staff or are very vague. No one can give you a firm plan of attack or answer to any questions. It is always well I dont' know or let me talk to Abe. I was told that for the "whole thing" ( his words)it would cost me $2500.00. Assuming that this meant to fight it. Even, though I had family pay less than that for other well known good lawyers to fight there case, I had heard such good things about Abe that I stuck with it. I wish I hadn't. I have since , after paying him 1400.00 , decided to plead in order to be able to afford court costs, and the office is telling me they will ask Abe but that I will probably still be charged $2500.00 even though he is not fighting this case for me. Which means I have paid him $2500.00 to meet with me once, do my bond and do a walk through which he was over 5 hours late for. I am to say the least livid. I do not know this man personally, so I really do not judge him on that level. I am simply telling those thinking of using him, to think carefully about the type of lawyer you want. This is a very embarrassing, scary and stressful time for people going through DWI and other court matters and I have not felt reassured or supported by this lawyer or his office at all. Good Luck to you in your quest for good representation.

From the initial meeting with Abe Factor it was a disaster. I had made an appointment to see him at his office. The meeting was at 6pm. For some reason I was expected to show up at 6 and yet there was no appointments when i walked in. It was first come first serve. As in you come in, sign in and he sees you when he gets to your name on the list. That was about a 2hr wait. When i finally went in he spoke to me for about 5 mins, if that, and said he would see me in court.
I have now been going to court for 8months and not ONCE has he showed up for any of the court dates. I even called his assistant and she told me he was on his way... I wait 4 hrs total and he never shows.
Not to mention his rude assistant decided to call and argue with me about why i was upset that i had been rescheduled for court 4 times already and he had no once showed. If your looking for a dependable attorney that actually cares about you, or at least acts like it, then ABE FACTOR is not the attorney for you. If you would like your case to be thrown in a pile of 600 other cases then go with Abe.

Hired this man on a good referral. He took our $ selling me a dream, saying that the state "has no case"... I sat in jail for 8 months w/only ONE visit from Abe. I finally posted bail, the case dragged on another 7 months with him telling me to take deal after deal... on my last court date, he showed up & told the judge he was not going to represent me anymore... they revoked my bond & threw me back in jail. I'm serving out two years State, no thanx to him or the $$ & time I wasted, just to get abandoned like I'm nothing! DO NOT risk your freedom on this man!!

I had court at 9am, and by 12:30 everyone had gone through and seen the judge. The judges and Abe himself all walked past me as I sat waiting by myself in the hallway. Maybe they were running down the hall? Nope, going home for the day. Worst service I've ever received. I definitely didnt drain savings account for this dumbass to take his lunch break. Wouldn't recommend him to anyone unless you want to waste your time and money.
