5.0 stars 7 totalReview Garrett Higley
I interviewed several attorneys before choosing Mr. Higley. He and his staff handled my case thoroughly and professionally every step of the way. They were always available to address my questions and concerns. Going through a divorce brings a ton of emotional stress. It was good to not have to worry about the competency of my representation along with the life altering changes a divorce brings.
Garrett C. Higley has served as my attorney on more than one occasion. His professional attention to every detail of my case, timely return of phone calls and correspondance, as well as superb representation, always put my mind and heart at ease through some difficult circumstances. To say that Garrett is not only an outstanding attorney but also a truly genuine human being would be an understatement. I'll never hire anyone else to represent me should the need arise.

Garrett Higley, and his staff, provided legal assistance for a divorce which also included complex consideration of custodial agreements for special needs children. Mr. Higley and his staff went beyond the support of legal professionals to accommodate for the needs of my unique family dynamics during office visits. They truly support the emotional and legal inputs of my divorce proceeding. The collaboration with mediative attorneys and specialized probate attorneys was well orchestrated resulting in a collected process vining from heated situations.
I recently had an opportunity to work side by side with Garrett Higley and his staff on a divorce case. He was professional and friendly, but stern when the client needed to hear the tough news. He worked diligently to get the client what she deserved and a bit of what she wanted. I will definitely send more of my clients to Garrett in the future.

Having hastily signed a divorce agreement that placed me in dire financial hardship and drastically limited my ability to see my daughter, I signed-on with Garrett to have said agreement modified. From the moment of the initial consultation I knew he was a consummate, resourceful professional; an attorney who not only had my best interests in mind, but genuinely cared about getting me reunited with my daughter.
Divorce modifications are rarely an easy undertaking, and this one proved no different. For starters, the original divorce agreement was little more than a “cut and paste” job that was quickly hacked-together by a cut-rate attorney in my ex-wife’s employ. As my ex-wife is known to be a bit eclectic, she has a unique definition of what the word “fair” means; in this case, “fair” meant that I was saddled with an extensive spousal support payment on top of child support, while she retained sole custody of my daughter. (The marriage had lasted barely lasted two years, during which I was the sole provider, and there was no history of abuse.) While this life-time spousal maintenance afforded my ex-wife the opportunity to remain unemployed while reaping a steady income, it placed me in considerable financial hardship while disconnecting me from my daughter even further. I was in quite the mess.
Garrett tackled what I thought was a hopeless situation head on. He turned his analytical attention to detail to the original divorce agreement, and told me point-blank what needed to be changed from the ground up. Our initial offers were met with resistance from my ex-wife’s camp; she wasn’t too keen on relinquishing the lifestyle that my labors had provided her. The back and forth went on for quite some time, but during these grueling exchanges Garrett never lost focus. Various approaches were utilized; everything from mediation to consulting third party attorneys who specialized in specific aspects of my case. His tenacity and expertise were invaluable, and he made himself available any time that I had a question or concern that needed to be addressed. (Important when conducting a divorce modification in Texas while residing in Virginia.)
Eventually, my ex-wife and I came to an agreement that was fair, and had the best interests of our daughter at the fore. The wrongs of the original divorce agreement were righted; the alimony was abolished, the child support is now a more reasonable amount that still adequately provides for my little girl’s well-being, and joint custody has been granted. Most importantly, my daughter and I now enjoy a renewed connection and are able to see each other regularly. The void in my life has been filled.
I’m not ashamed of sounding dramatic when I say that Garrett Higley gave me my life back. I would recommend him without a second of hesitation to anyone in the state of Texas who needs a family lawyer who is serious about aggressive representation while keeping family values firmly in the picture.

Garrett has been a true blessing to my family. Just as my kids and I were facing a very challenging part of our life, Garrett came in as a Volunteer Legal Service attorney to represent my family. Garrett and his staff worked willingly and diligently day after day to ensure our future. There are not enough words to express how grateful I am for all he has done. I would definitely refer Garrett to anyone in need of exceptional representation.
