Travis is a knowledgeable and aggressive lawyer.
The only catch is that you must have deep pockets. If you run low on money during litigation, Travis will dump you fast and leave you high and dry. It is my understanding that his firm has a reputation for this pattern.
He and his senior partner were fully and completely aware of my complete financial status when they took my case and my honesty, ability and willingness repay any debt. Travis and his senior Partner completely drained my bank account in a matter of weeks and left me to drown against the opposing side when the money ran out.
It took me many years and a lot more money to get the resulting disaster overturned.

Travis and his team were top notch, highly knowledgeable, and effective. He thought two steps ahead and kept me informed of my options along the way. His paralegal Denise was also great to work with. Would highly recommend!

I have used Mr. Turner for a variety of services over the last few years and have recommended him to many friends and acquaintances that were in need of a Family Law Lawyer. He is knowledgable, confident, tough, compassionate and brilliant - everything you want in a lawyer! I felt completely confident that he was looking out for my best interest. I will use him again and will certainly recommend him to anyone needing an amazing lawyer in their corner.

I can not say enough praises about Travis Turner and his paralegal Andrea Gulley!!! My divorce started out with a bad attorney. I called Travis to help me get out from under the previous attorney. Within 1 day I was in his office discussing options and what to do. From that point forward I never had any further worries. They quickly transferred everything under their firm and started resolving things as quickly as possible. My ex made things pretty nasty and costly due to silly and petty things. But Travis and Andrea pushed through and got me everything I wanted for me and my child. We worked for a fair deal for the well being of my 2 year old child. There was not one day that I went with a question because either Travis or Andrea kept me in the loop at every moment. There were days when we had numerous phone calls trying to figure things out. They always fought for what was best. And when I felt like I was going to lose everything and jump off a cliff they were there for me reassuring me every step of the way. I can never say enough thank yous for that reason. They became my best friends for 6 very long months. They helped me through the toughest time in my life and now I am happier than I have been in years thanks to their help and guidance. I was never mislead on anything and I know I can trust everyone at this firm for the best interest of me and my child.

Travis Turner represented me in the precedings of my divorce/custody hearing. I found him and his firm to be very professional and found him to be extremely bright. The divorce/custody hearing was moved to a different State as expected but Travis laid the ground work for a successful outcome. His advice and expertise in the initial hearing benefited me till the end. I'm happy to say that I gained majority custody of my son by the end which is often difficult for a father to get. I definitely recommend his firm.

Travis helped me in a divorce case several years ago. He was always very good about keeping me informed, he knew the law well, and had a long term view in regards to reaching a divorce agreement. The advice he provided has passed the test of time.

My wife and I used Mr. Turner's services in the context of modifying an existing custody order. Mr. Turner failed to plead one of our allegations properly, as he admittedly did not consult the Texas Family Code before filing our pleading. The other side responded with a special exception, meaning that there was a defect in our pleading. Most clients would probably view this as a normal legal tactic used by opposing counsel. However, my wife (an attorney) informed me that Mr. Turner had mispled the elements of that specific allegation, the elements which were easily obtainable from the Family Code. Mr. Turner indicated that we could easily remedy the situation with an amended pleading, which we would be charged for. When asked why he didn't consult the Family Code to correctly plead this particular cause of action the first time, he indicated that there were "no rules" in family law. When asked if he would waive his fee for the second pleading due to his firm's error, he refused. At that point, we switched firms and were able to obtain a satisfactory result with alternate counsel. Sometimes legal strategies don't pan out, and an attorney may have to file additional pleadings as a matter of course. However, when your attorney chooses not to consult the governing body of statutes and rules for the type of law that he practices at your expense, that is another matter altogether. Based on my experience, I cannot recommend Mr. Turner's legal services in the area of family law.

I was referred to Travis Turner a few years ago, when I was overwhelmed by the circumstances resulting from the stupidly generous settlement I made a couple of years prior with my ex-wife. Once he recovered from the shock of reading the document, Travis was BRILLIANT in coming up with potential solutions and strategies which resulted in a much fairer deal for me (he literally got my life back for me) - while still leaving my ex with a generous financial arrangement. Travis is a great negotiator and keeps the edges round, not sharp. He understands the humanity with which people react - and also reined me in when he needed to. Travis is a counselor as well as a lawyer - so I believe that if you try him, you'll like him a lot...

Travis is very knowledgeable and professional; he is also a good listener and seemed empathetic when dealing with my issues; I highly recommend him.
