4.0 stars 23 totalReview Stacey Valdez
I was a father seeking custody of my young son. I came to find out that Stacey Valdez is the pistol you want on your side. She is the most fearless and fierce woman I have ever met. Stacey’s knowledge of the law is extraordinary. She took my case and brought calm to a chaotic situation, handling every matter effectively and efficiently. Her staff was always available, professional, helpful and friendly. Stacey’s associate attorney Michaela Balderas brought even more to the table, making this team unbeatable. In the courtroom Stacey was confident and on her toes at all times. Out of the courtroom, her sense of humor and unfiltered observations brought a sense of lightheartedness to a gloomy situation, which calmed my nerves and raised my spirits. In the end, I was appointed Sole Managing Conservator of my son. She was a hero for my little man and no doubt helped save his life. I am forever appreciative to Stacey, Michaela and her staff for coming to battle for me and my son. I would never consider anyone but Stacey Valdez & Associates should I need any sort of legal assistance in the future.
If you are reading these reviews then you are in need of a good lawyer and you've landed on a great one. I've used Stacey Valdez on a number of matters over the last 4 years related to my divorce. I only wish I had used her for the original divorce, she is a fantastic lawyer! Stacey has represented me through several suits including more than a dozen hearings, several mediations, depositions and a jury trial. She was always there for me, fighting hard for me and ultimately securing primary custody of my children.
As a Father, challenging my ex-wife for custody of our children was not easy. Stacey understood my position and took the time to develop and execute a very effective legal strategy. There were bumps along the way – motions may not go your way, dates may be reset outside of your control, but in the end we were able to show a jury that it was in the best interest of the children to live with me. Stacey is outstanding in the courtroom! Her demeanor and understanding of the law is second to none in that setting. If you go to trial you want Stacey representing you.
What makes Stacey the right choice is not just her resume, her certifications, her knowledge of the law and her expertise in front of both judges and juries, it's that she gets emotionally invested and it shows. She's different than other lawyers I've watched because I know she really cares about my family situation and all of the outcomes. She will also tell you what you need to hear whether it's what you want to hear or not. She’s got strong ethics and will tell you when you are wrong too. This is more important than you think as I've seen the difference in ethical and non-ethical lawyers during my trial. She’s also been fairly easy to communicate with as lawyers go and quick to respond. No lawyer is going to always be able to drop everything and answer every call or email immediately even if they advertise they will. A good lawyer will have a heavy case load with many clients to deal with and will be in court a lot. They also won't study all the details of your case months before your hearing or trial because they won't remember it. Once you understand this and realize she's on top of things despite you not having daily updates, you’ll learn to relax and let her work for you. But when Stacey walks into that courtroom I feel confident every time that I’ve got the right lawyer with me.

I actually haven't even had to retain Stacey yet- but I am waiting on my ex husband to file for custody of our14 year old son. When he does I will be going straight to her . She did my cousins divorce and was amazing! She fought for him and his kids.

I want to first point out that the whole notion of divorce was simply terrifying to me as a husband of many years. Stacey and her amazingly professional staff really helped to calm my fears along every step of the tedious process. Her experience and knowledge of Texas divorce law is top notch. In fact, one of the main reasons I hired Stacey was due to her certification in Family Law.
If you are even merely contemplating seeking a divorce I highly recommend you take a meeting with Stacey - she will put you at ease about the entire process and be there for you every step of the way.

My divorce was extremely complicated and had several issues that made me feel like I was fighting a losing battle. From the day I hired Stacey, she took the bull by the horns and I marveled at her legal genius. She is incredible to watch in action, and definitely worth every penny. Not only did I get everything I asked for, I walked away with 85% of our assets. I know all too well how emotional divorces are and her great sense of humor always made me feel at ease.
Our divorce was so ugly and chaotic it resulted in two criminal charges against me. Stacey handled both of the criminal cases as well. Her expertise with both criminal law and family law was impressive. Both cases were dismissed and I couldn't have done it without her.
To make matters worse, the ex then tried to involve CPS and I also hired Stacey to handle that situation. The minute the CPS worker heard my attorney was Stacey Valdez and all communications needed to go thru Stacey, the frivolous investigation seemed to disappear over night.
I have referred several people to Stacey and I know if I ever have any legal issues, she is my go-to gal. She truly is a secret weapon. Hiring her for my second divorce made me wish I would have known about her for the first one. There is nothing worse than spending thousands of dollars on a useless or mediocre attorney. I really lucked out finding her. If you are going into battle, you need a bullet proof vest and a good weapon. Anyone else is like wearing aluminum foil for armor. Best decision I ever made.

I came into see Stacey with a difficult divorce case with single goal. Protect my Assests and my Time so that I could continue to be a significant part of my children's lives as a father and still provide a safe and secure future for them financially. Stacey delivered on BOTH. She never allowed me to lose focus on the bigger picture and the ultimate goal. MY children.

Stacey is amazing. She will fight to get everything you and your children rightfully deserve. She knows her stuff and and she does not mess around. She means business!!!! Very easy to talk to and very supportive of her client. I will never use anyone else. I absolutely LOVE Stacey. I was referred to Stacey by another Attorney and he asked me if I wanted a Beast and that's exactly what I got. If you want a good outcome on your case she is the one to go to! When choosing an Attorney always remember. . You get what you pay for!

Stacey was assigned to me as a public defender on a nightmare of a criminal case. In light of the events, things could have gone much worse, but I put my trust in her to take care of me, and she did exactly as she said she would. She is TOUGH. She takes no nonsense from the prosecution, and commands a tremendous amount of respect from everyone in the courtroom, and pays attention to the details. She is a DEFENDER. I will also be retaining her for divorce. She is a bulldog and won't back down, and won't allow you to be treated unfairly.

Stacey did an exceptional job for me. She was my 3rd attorney in my 6 year battle for my kids. She was the first who was able to make positive traction and ultimately save my kids from a terrible situation. She was incredible in court and did an amazing job in trial. She is a fierce fighter who will make things happen. She was MUCH better than the "expensive well known" firm I had hired and was the one who changed the course in my situation. I am very grateful for her help and support and recommend her services to anyone. She will make things happen for you. Work with her and give her as much as you can, trust her knowledge and guidance and you will not be disappointed.

Stacey tried a custody case for me a couple of months ago. She was so good. I was astonished at her ability to dismantle all of the witnesses for my ex. My ex had a good lawyer, but Stacey was far far better...every step of the way. We won. There is nothing better than winning. You want to win? Hire Stacey
