I hired R. J. Amsberry, Esq. when I needed counsel related to family law in a mediation context. His gifts are outstanding to the field, particularly in his superior grasp and application of laws in complex and esoteric parts. During mediation he corrected opposing counsel's suggestions, actually teaching the opposing lawyers, and ultimately settling a harmonious mediation for both parties. I have not yet seen any other lawyer do this. I was amused when the opposing lawyer started drafting documents at Mr. Amsberry's orders on the spot :-) If you want an excellent lawyer that can navigate your case with superior legal acumen, he's your go-to man.

I will start off by stating that I am an active duty military member. I sought out help from my local JAG office for assistance and I was instructed to find an attorney off a referral list with a snarky “good luck” to tend to my child custody modification. I was divorced post 2 years and I had a geographic limitation to Bexar County. In my past experience with attorneys in San Antonio, two actually, I’ve hired and fired. Make sure your attorney has YOUR family’s best interest at heart. Mr. Amsberry prevailed in my case and listens to you what you have to say. Honesty is the best policy and he is definitely not afraid to tell you the truth. I had a long drawn out modification due to my ex- spouse pushing for a jury trial. Mr. Amsberry and his paralegal team were superb in preparing my discovery documents, research, presentation, depositions, witnesses, and expert witnesses. Listen to what Mr. Amsberry has to say, if you need an expert witness, get an expert witness. Money comes and goes, but do you want to be cheap when it comes to your child (ren)? Sometimes you get what you pay for if you settle for less. My case went up to the day set for the trial and we settled out of court with a mediator. Which I still had my expert witness present and Mr. Amsberry. My ultimate advice; is do what is best for you and your children and have Mr. Amsberry with his team in your corner. You are the ultimate judge to figure out what attorney is best for your case but, I highly recommend Mr. Amsberry and his paralegal team.

I spent years dealing with other attorneys wasting my time and money in a child custody case. Mr. Amsberry and his staff finished my case in two months awarding me full custody of my son, that I had not seen in years. I will be forever grateful to him! Mr. Amsberry was recommended by the Fort Sam Houston's JAG office after years of false hope and promises from other attorneys.

Mr. Amsberry did an excellent job for my family and our multiple issues. We had several wills that were long overdue in being probated and he took care of this very quickly and easily for us. He also updated others. We had various issues regarding family land and he made several suggestions on different options and even set up appointments for us with city departments to determine our best course of action. He went the extra mile for us to assure our questions were answered and our needs were met. We would highly recommend Mr. Amsberry to anyone needing legal advice or assistance.

Russell Amsberry has been my divorce attorney and workplace attorney for seven years. During this time Mr. Amsberry practiced his expertise in law far above and beyond what I had expected when searching for an attorney. He was always available day or night and would answer his phone even to say "I am with a client, I will call you back". Mr. Amsberry was very professional and also empathetic. He is one of the best attorney's I have ever come across. I would refer my friends and family members first to Mr. Amsberry before anyone else.

Mr. Amsberry is an amazing attorney. In what I considered to be a difficult and complicated matter, he was able to review the facts, utilize his expertise, act quickly and competently. He communicated completely, demonstrated high levels of professional standards, and proved at all times to prepare and focus on my behalf for a positive result. It is my honor to know Mr. Amsberry, and my good luck that I was introduced to him. With great admiration and gratitude, I sincerely recommend him.

Mr. Amsberry and his team have helped me and my children very much. He always explained everything that was happening and what is/was going to happen. Any time that I had any questions or anything I just had to call and if needed they would set me up with a meeting. My ex has tried to make this difficult and Mr. Amsberry has always been ready and willing to fight for what I am needing in my case. Mr. Amsberry and his team have already gone above and beyond, I feel like he has my back no matter what, I trust him completely. I also feel like he has mine and my childrens best interest in mind.. He has a great heart and my family is very appreciative for what he has already done and what he is still doing. Thank you to Russell Amsberry and his team... They are wonderful.

Had my Dad losing all of his savings due to placement in a nursing home. Came to Mr. Amsberry and he helped my and my family understand proactive estate planning/medicaid planning strategies to keep Dad where he was and preserve as much of his estate as was possible. In the process, we saved over $120,000 in monies that would have had to be spent down to qualify for medicaid. He was concerned and his staff was very polite and professional. In short, he and his staff helped turn an imploding situation into one where we could find some light at the end of the tunnel. Would recommend him to any of my friends or family.

The day before my hearing, he informed me that he was not available to appear because he had another commitment. He claimed that he was not aware my hearing was on that particular day. WHAT?? He certainly was aware when it came to being paid. He snatched up the money and ran, plus added more money to my bill through a credit card payment without my knowledge. What a nightmare! On the plus side, I did get a refund thanks to my credit card company.

I had a difficult custody fight and Russell along with his staff went the distance -- staying until 11 p.m. at night preparing witnesses, preparing and presenting my case. After the end of week before a jury, I won in large measure do hard work and smart lawyering. Getting my kids back was one of the best days of my life!
