    • I recommend Dennis Slate.

    I used Dennis Slate as my attorney for my divorce in 2014. He was very professional and his staff was very quick to respond to any concerns and questions. They made the most difficult time in my life bearable, and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

    • I recommend Dennis Slate.

    Unquestionably the best attorney in the greater Houston area. (and I've met more than a few..) Extremely attentive to my issues and well versed in my immediate responsibilities and future legal course of action/strategy. Very approachable and well received in the legal community- which helped my case dismissal process tremendously. Mr. Slate continues to be my first call in legal matters.

    • I recommend Dennis Slate.

    I have used Dennis Slate as my attorney since 2011. He and his office personnel are professional and responsive. Dennis is very matter of fact and will tell you the exact truth of the matter. His candor is much appreciated. I would recommend his law office to anyone in need of an attorney.

    • I recommend Dennis Slate.

    Dennis has been my lawyer since 2010, navigating my divorce and many contentious modifications involving the best interests of my children. At every turn he has been professional and honest: this man will quickly arrive at the core of the issue and indicate your options, as well as what one can realistically expect. Going into court, his calm and confident demeanor is welcome.

    His co-counsel, Melissa, is the heart of their office. She takes the time to assuage worries, address tedious details, and offer commonsensical and sincere advice. With her you have the sense that your concerns have truly been heard.

    Their office has been my peace of mind during some of the darkest times. Further, their fees are reasonable and comparable to other attorney's in his field of practice. If you have a lengthy, expensive cases(s) with him, he will even allow a payment plan. Essentially the Slate office deals with and treats you as a person rather than 'another case' to move.

    I would, and often do, recommend these attorneys for those needing reliable legal representation, especially within the family court system and CPS.

    • I recommend Dennis Slate.
    • I hired Dennis 1-6 months ago.
    • Dennis handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I am extremely grateful to Attorney Dennis Slate for his guidance and support in my recent divorce. My ex-husband's lawyer LOST to Dennis and his bill was 3 times as much as my charges with Dennis (not an exaggeration). He did not overcharge me and he was reasonable with his the invoices, my ex cannot say the same.

    It was a complicated situation, but I felt like Dennis was a walking legal dictionary, he knows the Texas laws inside and out. Dennis is a force to be reckoned with in the court room, it was kind of fun watching him against the other side. I would recommend him to anyone who wants an assertive lawyer.

    • I do not recommend Dennis Slate.
    • I hired Dennis 1-6 months ago.
    • Dennis handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    The worse attorney I have ever dealt with. Was not prepared and on one case was late to court due to handling too many cases at once. Placed me at greater financial risk due to not knowing case and never explained risk. Charged me for work that was never used and nickle and dimed me for thousands. Very bad attorney and would never suggest hiring this firm.

    • I recommend Dennis Slate.
    • I hired Dennis 6-12 months ago.
    • Dennis handled my Family matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Well... To begin having Child Protective Agency (CPS) trying to remove your child unjustly is a psychological burden that can linger on for months, however not having the right counsel can hurt you the most; having the right lawyer is the better option for you and your family especially someone who knows what they are doing inside the court room. We hired Mr. Slate a couple of months ago, and he is very down to earth (someone you can talk to) and above all extremely knowledgable about the laws and legal system. Moreover, the litigation process is long and tedious but my spouse and I relaxed after hiring this attorney. Mr. Slate will definitely fight for you and your family by all means necessary; his legal services could benefit you in the court room (very strong attorney). I am writing this review to expose this attorney for his excellence and loyalty to his clients- I promise you won't be disappointed! He won a dismissal for us. Thank you Mr Slate !!

    • I recommend Dennis Slate.

    • Dennis handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    My husband and I reached out to Attorney Slate during a very difficult time in our life when my husband was trying to obtain custody of his son. In spite of how completely stressed we were at the time, Attorney Slate assured us that everything would be okay. Attorney Slate and his wonderful staff worked diligently and set up an Emergency hearing right away. Through Attorney Slate’s hard work my husband was awarded Temporary Custody and was set for a Final Trial soon thereafter. 6 months later we were back in court and won our hearing for the Final Trial!!!

    These last couple of months has been very stressful for my husband and I, but I thank God we had Attorney Slate on our side and not a rip-off attorney that just took our money. Attorney Slate and his staff were very compassionate, trustworthy and were there any time we needed them.
    In my honest opinion, I feel that this would have been a “Mission Impossible” without Attorney Slate by our side!! I would trust him with my life and have recommended him to just about everyone that inquires about an attorney.

    He is no joke and is a BEAST in the courtroom so if you need legal representation hire Attorney Slate, trust me you will not be disappointed and you will thank me in the end!! My husband and I couldn’t be happier, thanks again Attorney Slate and all of your staff!!!
