I had a cross-country international divorce case going on (India-USA) and Jake stepped in at an extremely crucial point during the case. It was a difficult and complicated case with multiple cases in the 2 countries. He not only took over the case completely, but kept me informed and helped me retain my sanity during my toughest times. Due to his advice and guidance, my daughter and I are finally able to restart our lives. He even helped me locate and find another attorney because of some unavoidable and specific issues. He became my guide, and eventually, my friend - someone I can never thank enough for how much he did for my daughter and me - we are finally safe, thanks to the ball that he set rolling. And the best part is that we always only talked on the phone! I still haven't seen him in person! That's how awesome he is. He's one of the good guys, and a keeper! If I were you, I'd trust him in a heartbeat.

Jake Gilbreath and his team at Piper and Turner are some of the best attorneys I have worked with. I had a very difficult divorce with various complications, Jake and his team were always well prepared and ultimately got me everything I wanted and more!!! If you need a strong attorney that will fight hard but ethically you need not look any further!!!

Jake is the attorney one should hire for representation especially if the case is family law and involving child custody. We took the "high road" on most all issues and the final decisions in the case were all on my side and in mine and my children's best interests. Advice and logic was spot on, courtroom demeanor stellar, and mediation negotiation sharp. Jake returned calls promptly, followed through on the myriad of details, and held my hand, so to speak, through the difficult emotional stages to help me see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Tôi tên là Vy Truong, Tôi là khách hàng của luật sư James từ tháng 10/ 2012 đến tháng 03/2013. Tôi là người phụ nữ không may mắn trong hôn nhân. Trong lúc tôi chưa biết làm sao để thoát ra khỏi cuộc hôn nhân địa ngục của mình thì SAHELI đã giới thiệu tôi được gặp luật sư James. Trước khi gặp James, tôi nghĩ những người làm luật sư rất khô khan và khó gần gũi nhưng khi tôi được gặp James thì mỗi cảm nhận của tôi đều được thay đổi. Khi nghe tôi trình bày về hoàn cảnh khó khăn của mình, James đã xin Manager để bào chữa hoàn toàn miễn phí, để giúp tôi thoát khỏi cuộc hôn nhân với người chồng ích kỷ, có tính gia trưởng bạo hành gia đình trong 10 năm qua.
James làm việc rất nghiêm túc và nhiệt tình, mặc dù thứ bảy là ngày nghỉ của luật sư nhưng đã nhiều thứ bảy luật sư đã đến tận Shelter, cũng như hẹn chúng tôi đến văn phòng luật sư, để James và thư ký ghi rõ chi tiết của hồ sơ, chỉ dẫn tôi tận tình cách làm việc với cảnh sát, cách giải quyết tài sản, làm sao để con cái an toàn thuộc về tôi, và giúp tôi tự tin, khỏi bỡ ngỡ trước tòa
Phong cách làm việc của James rất thân thiện, vui vẻ, không làm cho tôi cảm thấy bị áp lực. James giải quyết mọi yều cầu, thác mắc của Tôi rất nhanh và rõ ràng khiến tôi cảm thấy yên tâm và hài long.
Theo như tôi biết, với những luật sư khác khi tòa án ra quyết định cuối cùng là trách nhiệm của luật sư đã xong nhưg với james thì luật sư vẫn theo dõi case của tôi đến khi con tôi 18 tuổi, James là người rất nhiệt tình và có trách nhiệm với công việc. Khi làm việc Jame luôn có những kế hoạch tốt nhất cho người mà được James đang bào chữa. James là người làm việc rất uy tín, khi James đã hứa điều gì thì chắc chắn James sẽ làm được, và không bao giờ đưa những lời hứa suông cũng như những lời nói và dự báo suông cho case của mình.
Câu chuyện của tôi đã kết thúc được 1 năm rồi, mọi chuyện đã được giải quyết tốt đẹp. Tôi và các con được bảo vệ an toàn khỏi người chồng tệ bạc, vũ phu. Mọi tài sản đã được luật sư giúp đỡ thủ tục chuyển nhượng cho tôi quản lý. Để có được cuộc sống tự do, thoải mái của ngày hôm nay tôi cần phải cảm ơn James, cảm ơn những gì mà luật sư làm cho tôi rất nhiều

When Jake took over our case, it had been a thorn in our side for many years. He presented himself in a professional manner in the office as well as in the courtroom. He was respectful of our time, adhering to the appointment times, always punctual and prepared. We felt he retained the facts that were given to him about the case and they were organized and easily accessible if needed. When there were times that we needed to vent, and he was there to listen as well as empathize. He brought the case to a close in a reasonable amount of time and we would hire him again.

Words cannot express my gratitude for James "Jake" Gilbreath and his team. When Jake took on my case, I realized quickly that he was in it to make a difference. His compassion for every human, his passion for equality, his knowledge of the law and his tenacity surpassed what I ever could have expected. Jake and his team kept me updated and informed each step of the way leading to our trial. I never worried about what was going on because of the constant communication either by phone, email or office visits. They made it easy to put my trust in them and relinquish my stress.
When a relationship ends things can become complex and due to the current Texas Laws same-sex child custody disputes can be especially complicated and challenging when only one parent is biologically related to the child. According to Texas Law this applies to Same-Sex Couples, Non-Biological Parents and Grandparents. After much of my own research I learned that the outcome in these types of cases can be daunting and far reaching, but Jake has made a difference in my life, the life of my daughter and for the future lives of many who face the same challenges.
Today, it's because of Jake and his team that I won this fight and have rights to my daughter, it's because of Jake and his team that I was given Standing rights. So, if you're looking for an attorney that exemplifies true and honest character, if you're looking for an attorney who will put you first during an already stressful time in your life and if you're looking for an attorney who will give it his best fight, I strongly recommend Mr. Gilbreath.

It gives me immense pleasure to write a recommendation for Jake. Our first interaction happened to be on phone and even without meeting him in person initially I felt assured enough to hire him as my attorney. He is confident, learned, articulate and responsive. I was well informed at every step of the way by him. There was never a time when I felt doubtful about hiring Jake. He paid attention to my expectation from case and I didn't feel that my case was ever neglected. I wholeheartedly recommend him.

I was referred to Jake by a great support group. He is an honest, straight forward, excellent, and thorough attorney. He is tough in court. Good ones like me deserved a good attorney like Jake.
I cannot thank him enough for being my attorney and really fighting for my rights and fair share.
I definitely recommend him.

Jake really was the perfect attorney for my divorce. Every legal situation is unique, but mine had a special spin on it. My first attorney was being personally harassed by my ex-husband, so Jake took over my case mid-way through. Jake wasn't intimated by the history of threats; he and his firm quickly got up to speed, wasting no time. I was impressed by his tough, yet supportive nature. Jake did an excellent job of standing up for the issues I felt were important, and keeping me aware of all the possible outcomes. I have a young daughter and her custody was the primary issue for the settlement. Jake recognized that, and he kept her safety and health as his concern throughout all negotiations. He made himself available to me at all hours and responded quickly to even the silliest of questions.
The most impressive thing about Mr. Gilbreath (even more than his "pit-bull" attitude towards my ex-husband), was his ability to help me set priorities. He has an eye for the big picture and didn't let little, petty requests from the other party get in the way of our goals.
I needed an attorney who wouldn't back down from threats and harassment. I needed an attorney who would make sure that my daughter was safe and healthy. I needed an attorney who would guide me through the most embarrassing, most painful, most stressful period of my life with dignity and respect. I needed an attorney who would recognize my priorities and make them his. Jake Gilbreath did all that.
