Ms. Blackwell is very professional and cordial. She explained the details of the case clearly. I felt very confident that she was giving the best advice.
She maybe a very experienced lawyer but I think she needs to take some course to learn some "manners". I got referred through LRS and didn't had $20 (yes, compare that to the fees) cash on me when I came to visit and also forgot my checkbook. Talked to LRS and they don't take phone payments for consultation and just as I was about to reschedule my appointment for later, so I can come prepared next time, came Betty Blackwell. Not only she said I was late (although I asked in advance if I need to reschedule as I will be running late and her assistant said it's fine), she straight away told me (very rudely, while emphasizing on how important her time is compared to mine) to pay the money or find another lawyer. I was baffled and angry and couldn't believe how could someone so professional and experienced be so rude. Maybe it's her ego, a bad day, or maybe that's just the way she treats her potential/current clients, I just didn't like her attitude as a potential client and so I said thanks, and left.
Thanks for nothing Betty, I hope you get a lot of clients with that attitude of yours!
I hired Betty Blackwell several years ago when I lived in Travis County. I came to her for assistance after being charged with felony assault. I work as a professional and my career and life was on the verge of being over with this criminal charge. After consulting with several attorneys who all told me basically that I was going to do jail time or I was going to settle for 10+ years probation, I met Betty Blackwell. She listened to me patiently, hearing all the facts and details of what happend. She was honest and upfront and seemed very caring towards me at this horrible time in my life. She was able to gather all the facts and witnesses to prove my innocence and prove that I was not the violent criminal that I was made out to be. She and her assistant always kept me informed so I was never left in the dark. Thanks to Betty, we got the results I needed and I have my freedom and life back. I now can put this nightmare behind me. I will ALWAYS be forever grateful for her hard work that she did for me. I HIGHLY recommend her as an outstanding criminal defense attorney. Thank you again Betty! May god bless you for your service and dedication to help those who are wrongly accused.
