Richard Jones and his legal assistant Hanna did a wonderful job for me, he was court appointed for me however if I had money I would be happy to pay for their service...after 1 and 1/2 yrs he was able to get my case dismissed so I am back to a perfect record except the arrest record of course all of which should have never happened in the first place...communication with them was excellent, I feel I was very lucky to have Richard and Hanna work on my case....Thank you both very very much

He is the worst attorney in Austin. He did not show up in court after telling me not to bother showing up because he would take care of it. Which resulted in my bond being forfeitured. As a result I had warrants out and he never got my bond reinstated after countless times of calling and calling his office or cell. I was picked up from work by the Bondsman and even after being arrested he did not get my bond reinstated or get me out. He asked for another $1000 dollars and I stayed in jail for 90 days total!!! TO ADD INSULT TO INJURY He did not give ME my money back! I had to hire another attorney and was released in a week. I lost my job, my car was repossessed, and I dissolved my 401k paying attorney's fees to get out so if you have a criminal issue please, please, please never hire this man!! YOU'VE BEEN WARNED!

Let me start by saying if you have any family or loved ones that are incarcerated DO NOT HIRE THIS MAN! He is not trustworthy and in fact tried to steal my money without doing anything to get me out!

Mr. jones ans his assistant hannah was great at representating me on my legal case and took care of me through the whole court proceedings and finishing it up with a 150 percent satisfaction. As for him being a family man was very understanding in my cituation and handle my case very well and i recommend him to anyone in the austin and surrounding area.

Mr. Jones was appointed to me out of the 390th court. And WOW!!! He was attentive, quick to answer all my ?'s and he got me off of alot of the trouble I was in. Even after that charge was over, later I returned to court on an MTR, I called him & he was there for me. Even after all that time he still was there when I need him & again he was up to date b4 the warrant was even posted!! I am proud to do this review & to let everone know that Richard Jones is a Wonder Maker, let him work wonders for you.
Thank you so much Mr. Jones!!

I would never recommend this attorney if you are serious about winning your case. This attorney does not work for the client. I paid him and was made promises that were never kept. For one, the only contact or communication I had with attorney Jones was in court itself. He had no idea about my case and never even took the time to sit down and discuss the circumstances behind my case. He would not return calls, emails, texts, nothing! I was kept in the dark on my case which just ended after a year and a half of going to court behind it. He did not do anything for me but take my money and waste valuable time. I could have gotten what I got on my own had I represented myself. He is not a good attorney and I would think twice before hiring him for representation. I found out later, after paying him his fee, he is also a court appointed attorney and I could have saved that money and gotten him for free! DO NOT USE THIS ATTORNEY if you are serious about winning you case! If you don't care how it turns out, then use him. He will NOT fight for you nor will he keep you informed about your case. You are a number not a person to him! I should have done better research! He promises a lot however, after hire, you will never be able to get a hold of him again, until you are at your court dates. Again, I got the Maximum Probation sentence after a year and a half of going to court. I could already be done with this had he gotten what he got me when this started.

Mr. Jones was hired by my family to represent me on an Assault Family Violence charge in April 2012 in Travis County. I had 3 courtdates and Mr. Jones was able to get my case dismissed. He and Hanna, his assistant, were easy to get in contact with while I was in jail. He has also represented my brother on a similar charge, and he got a good outcome as well. I recommended him to many people in jail that needed an attorney. I would refer him to any friend or family member, now that I am free again.

Richard has been very responsive and knowledgeable about how to handle my case and has been very professional. He is currently working on my case.

Richard Jones is the worst lawyer I have ever come in contact with!!!! He is about getting your money only and to put your loved ones in prison. He doesnn't work for you (the client) just a yes man that works for the courts! He never keeps in contact with his clients or their families, always dodging their calls, email or text messages. I wouldn't refer this so call lawyer to my worst enemy!!!!

Mr. Jones is currently handling my theft case and he is great! I have had some delays due to medical conditions, but he has been very helpful.

Mr. Jones is wonderful. I am so grateful to have had such a knowledgeable professional in my corner. Mr. Jones kept me informed and lifted my confidence level while never misleading me or sugar coating details. I walked away with a dismissed case and a piece of mind. Even after we won he took the time to call me and congratulate me. Thank you! You and your staff are the best.
