  1. Would not choose anyone else to represent me!

    • I recommend James Stapler.

    I can not say enough good things about Dan Corbin and Associates. After visiting another attorney whom shall remain nameless and being quoted an amount of $10,000 to represent me, I was referred to Corbin and Associates where I was assigned Jay Stapler as my attorney. I could not have been happier with my results. After waiting a year to have my day in court I received news from Jay and his staff that I would not have to appear due to the decision in my case being overturned and subsequently dismissed. If you are in need of a great lawyer look no further than Dan Corbin and Associates. Thank You Jay and your great staff for taking time to get to know me and assisting me with my legal needs.

    • I recommend James Stapler.

    Mr. Stapler was very professional and thorough. He saw a lost young man and helped him. He got a kid a second chance. He was very compassionate and loyal to this young man and we will forever be grateful to Mr. Stapler for his time, and for truly caring. He saw the potential in my son and got him a chance after my sons other attorney dropped him like a hot potato. Words cannot describe how wonderful Mr. Stapler is. If your looking for help from someone who truly cares this is your guy!! On my sons last visit in court another man was there and he too spoke very highly of Mr. Stapler and assured me that Mr. Stapler would help my son out because he had helped him too. Thank you Mr. Stapler, thank you for your loyalty to my sons case. We will ever be grateful!!

    • I do not recommend James Stapler.

    I contacted this law office about a divorce. I paid them over $1500. its been about 7 months and last week was the first time I actually got to talk to Mr. Stapler. he never returns calls and he is very unprofessional. Without even looking at my file he said to just give her what she wans , she will win. I had to call the law office to see what was going on for them to do anything. only time they ever called me was when it was about money, Pleas I beg you to find another lawyer at all cost.

    • I recommend James Stapler.

    I fell into some legal issues and Mr. Stapler represented me. I was terrified, as I have never been in trouble before. Mr. Stapler walked me through the process and made me feel so much better about my situation. My charges were eventually dismissed and my bad decision will no longer haunt me. I am so appreciative to him and his staff. I have referred a couple of friends for other legal matters and have heard nothing but positive feedback from them.

    This particular attorney that works for corbin and associates has ben one of the most unprofessional people i have ever had the pleasure of working with. I was never kept informed and never received any types of correspondence even though i tried contacting them over and over again. When i explained to him i was concerned that he was uninvested in my case than my legal matter he blew up raised his voice at me, cussed at me and called me names. The firm then took the money i paid them as retainer for another civil matter and did not provide the service that was promised.

      Lawyer Comment:

      This review would be from Ed Demirs. I was able to get his Murder charge no billed by the grand jury. When he disagreed with the law regarding expunction he started posting negative comments about my associate on the internet. He had not even paid our firm for an expunction. I supported my employee so now he post negative comments about me. My representation of him was flawless. He walked away with a dismissal.

    • I do not recommend James Stapler.
    • I hired James 1-3 years ago.
    • James handled my Child Custody matter.

    Nice folks but completely incompetent. Once they've got your money they refuse to return calls, emails, or text messages (we tried all 3 to reach someone and no one ever returned our calls). The principal of the firm, Dan Corbin, was too busy running for Mayor of Killeen to ensure his clients legal services were being cared for. Typical politician, says one thing and does another.

    Ultimately, we had to terminate our contract with them and intend to submit complaints to the American and Texas Bar Associations. These folks should not be practicing law in any jurisdiction.

    • James handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    This guy is awesome! I had two criminal charges and was fearing my future. He made a deal with the DA that if I don't get into trouble for a year, both charges would be dismissed! He has also helped one of my friends get custody of her son after her dead-beat baby's daddy left the state with him! I went to court with her and he was not scared to get up and fight for her rights! It was awesome to see an attorney be so invested in her case! It was like he was fighting for a child of his own! I would recommend this guy to ANYONE, even my grandma!
