I highly recommend Jimmy Evans as well as his staff. My case extended over 3 years due to a "hiding" ex-spouse, and I am so grateful that they hung in there with me until he was found. It was a "gotcha" moment for us all. They displayed patience and commitment, and they were right there with me when I needed them. Jimmy Evans is an attorney who really cares for his clients, and I'm impressed with him as an individual and as an attorney.

I cannot recommend Jimmy Evans Family Law Group enough! After
having dealt with some other attorneys similar in caliber and qualifications to Jimmy Evans, I can confidently say Mr. Evans is a Top Notch Attorney, an attorney that people need to know about. With Jimmy Evans, you will be paying for quality representation.
I would describe Jimmy Evans as sharp as a razor guy, persuasive presenter, a very strategic thinker who has a great heart. Jimmy Evan's legal expertise, diligence in preparing for hearings, and communication skills make him one of the best in his class. The professionalism I experienced in Mr. Evan's office is unparalleled. Mr. Evan's office is a well-oiled machine with the efficiency of his operations from all of his legal staff.
His paralegal Charles Verdict is amazing. He is very intelligent, detail-oriented and full of ideas. He almost predicted the outcome of my divorce.
My case was a simple divorce case that turned out complicated case due to the numerous and ridiculous attempts to keep me from being a father. But Mr. Evans fought hard for me and got me a decree that allowed me to be a father and enabled me to finish a chapter of my life
Mr. Evans fought against a firm Piper & Turner that calls itself the "Champions of a Rights Group" and equips itself with resources from a particular rights group.
But, in the end, despite Piper Turner's resources, Mr. Evans was able to put things where they belong and was able to obtain a fair and equitable divorce for me and able to get me expanded visitation with my younger child.
Now, looking back, I feel as I thought it was a blessing in disguise for me to have been referred to Mr. Evan's law firm by my previous attorney. Rest assured that your legal matter, no matter how big or small, will be handled appropriately by the Evans Family Law Group.
JIMMY: THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

Mr Evans and his staff drafted an expensive final order that is filled with contradictions, and will essentially land me back in court in order to clarify all the ambiguity.

Working with Jimmy Evans law practice was such a welcome change after having wasted time and money on the same adoption case with other so-called ‘Family Law’ lawyers in Austin. This firm specializes in Family Law, and knows what they are doing.
His office is professional, but not ‘stuffy’ feeling, well organized and efficiently run.
If you call, they answer the phone, talk with you or take a message, and someone will get a response back to you in a timely manner.
Jimmy and the staff know how to make effective use of email and don’t “nickel and dime” their clients
Jimmy listens to what you have to say and involves you in the thinking and strategy to come up with the best approach – he treats the client with respect and acknowledges that the process, while sometimes stressful, is best handled as a collaboration, and that the client might also have a brain and know something about the particulars of their case.
We were able to review documents before submissions to the court, and Jimmy is good at delegating these logistical items to staff whom incur lower billing costs, saving money for the client.
Jimmy and firm enabled us to complete the adoption -- after several other lawyers had advised us we would probably not be successful in this quest. We’d recommend Jimmy Evans Law Firm for those in need of a “Family Law” lawyer who really knows his stuff.

Jimmy and his staff did a great job of managing my case with great organization, consideration and professionalism. I hired Jimmy after several other consultations because he assured me success, which others saw difficult since my case was a divorce with children involving relocation to another state. Jimmy is direct, efficient and very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend him!

Mr Jimmy Evans guided me through the process of obtaining a satisfactory conclusion to my son's
divorce in Austin Texas, even though our residence is in Washington State. He was not only professional, knowledgable and timely in his responses he was personable and helpful with questions asked. The time difference of 2 hours between WA & TX sometimes necessitated Mr Evans returning calls outside of normal business hours which he did several times.
I have no hesitation in recommending both him & his staff to any one who needs legal advice in his field of law.

You can't beat the level of professionalism you'll receive at the Law Office of James W. Evans. Jimmy’s legal knowledge, preparation and communication skills were first-class. Charles was extremely knowledgeable, respectful, and a great help to me.
My case involved a very complicated financial matter; Jimmy knew exactly how to approach the confusion. His team did an outstanding job with the financial investigation and compiled a great deal of evidence to support my case. I felt comfortable with the decisions I made because they explained everything to me in great detail. They are experienced, honest and compassionate. I consider them my friends.
Thanks for everything!

I spoke to a number of attorneys before I decided on Jimmy. It was the best decision I ever made. He told me exactly what to expect, and it turned out to be right on the money. He was always available to answer any questions I had, and returns calls promptly.
I would highly recommend Jimmy and his staff !!

I was very happy with the Evans Family Law Group and how Mr. Evans said exactly what he thought would happen and that's pretty much happened. I respected that he was willing to express what he didn't feel was best for me and was open an honest in setting my expectations. As a father of 2 little ones, having honest expectations was very important to me. I was very much in need for assistance on how to come to common ground with their mother and Mr. Evans and his firm was more than able to do so and I was extremely happy with the outcome. Most told me that dad's in Texas don't get to raise their children. Thanks to Mr. Evans, I have the opportunity to be able to raise my children and be with them everyday. Thank you very much and I would highly recommend Mr. Evans and his team.

I met with Jimmy Evans after finding his information on the web. I met four of his staff members while at his office and all were friendly. The front Desk person, Dina was very informative during my initial call to the firm and let me know my deadline date to answer my suit. She also worked me in on short notice.
Jimmy and his staff member went through my documentation and offered me several options to handle my case. I had several misunderstandings about my case that were cleared up and now I have the information I need to make an educated decision. I am most likely going to pay their reasonable retainer and have them represent me.
Thanks Jimmy and staff!

I hired Mr. Evans for what seemed like a straightforward custody matter. Then, the mom made things extremely complicated. Mr. Evans handled things expertly, efficiently, and always kept me informed about strategy and each step of the way. His staff always answered or returned my phone calls and Mr. Evans was always accessible even by his cell phone.
Posted by Dorsey, a Child Custody client, Flag
I hired Mr. Evans to handle a complicated custody matter regarding my children. Without a doubt, the Evans Family Law Group has restored my faith in lawyers. This is the best family law firm in Austin, Texas ... I would highly recommend Mr. Evans and his team. The paralegal assigned to my case, Lisa, was thorugh, patient, and a fantastic listener. Mr. Evans and his team were methodical and consitent in assessing, setting, and meeting every goal and expectation. I'm off to enjoy my kids ... THANKS FOR EVERYTHING!!!

Being a firefighter I have learned to be able to adapt and overcome to any situation that comes my way.
In December of 2010 came a situation that blind sided me and I was not prepared or ready to handle a crises on my home front. From the start I knew this was the firm for me. I called at least 10 attorney offices in the area. Most were short and wanted money up front and were very expensive.
When I called the Evans Law Group I was given helpful information and faith that they would be there until the end.
I would recommend this Law office to anyone of my family members or fire department friends. I not only hired a great attorney but have found a friend with Jimmy Evans.

I hired Jimmy Evans because, not only was he the first attorney to not charge for my initial visit but he gave me excellent advice regarding my daughter as well.Though the situation surrounding my ordeal was extremely difficult and drove up the cost, Jimmy Evans was able to foresee the direction my ex was headed and strategize a plan that considered my financial needs and the needs of my daughter.
Jimmy Evans is a thoughtful, knowledgeable,experienced attorney who not only considers the immediate outcome but how it will play out in the future and I might add that his staff was always professional and considerate.
Thank you, Amy

I started the divorce process, with Mr. Evans, and his team, last year. From the very start, he made me feel his main concern was my well-being, and financial stability. He gave me very sound advice, and explained the process, thouroughly. The divorce could have been completed a lot quicker, but originally, I thought we would be able to get through this without mediation. It turned out, that wasn't the case. Once Jimmy had determined that the divorce was being procrastinated, and needed to go to mediation, all documents and dates were set up within a month's timeframe. With his help/guidance during mediation, everything was able to be completely settled. If you're at that point in your marriage, and not sure what step you need to take, I would highly recommend making an appointment with Jimmy, and his staff.

We retained Evans Family Law Group to handle my daughters divorce. Going in we were not sure if we could get anyone to understand the whole picture into the circumstances of my daughters ordeal. Over time Jimmy Evans and his (PL) Charles Verdict gave us the assurances we required. They truly got it. They proceeded to investigate, uncover and document every facet of our case and compiled a huge amount of evidence to present at trial. Jimmy's consolidated and thorough presentation and interrogation of witnesses was outstanding. In the end, the judge truly got it as well and our family is immeasurably happy with the results. We are truly grateful to the Evans Family Law group.

Look no further, Evans Family Law Group is the answer! Going through a divorce is frightening and stressful, but having a good lawyer helps a lot. That is the comfort I found at Evans Family Law Group. I was scared when I first walked into their office, but Mr. Evans listened to me and took notes of everything I said about my case. This is the kind of attention you need when you are most fragile. Every step of the process was carefully analyzed to get the best outcome and whenever I had a question or concern, they got back to me pretty fast. There is no 100% satisfaction on a divorce, since both parties need to give something up, but if you are looking for one of the best representations you can get, Evans Family Law Group is the answer. You will spend some serious money anyway, so decide for a good lawyer, that will care.

Jimmy Evans is an excellent attorney. He handled our case with great care. He is strategic, tenacious and thoughtful. If you need an attorney that is going to fight for you this is the man and firm. Great support staff and great communications during our case. Don't look any more. Hire him now!!!

I found Evans Law Group through a google search and after my consultation with them regarding a child support case I wanted to pursue, I felt comfortable working with them. Due to negative experiences with past lawyers regarding my case, I decided to try my luck. My case was settled within a few months, and was pretty much smooth sailing for me. The team at Evins were all very responsive to my questions and inquiries regarding my case. I would recommend this law group to friends and family.

Jimmy is every bit the 'scrapper' his reputation holds him out to be. Though it took some convincing to get him into Jimmy's office, once we were there talking to Jimmy my fiancee finally understood how important it was that we get representation for our family law troubles. I am absolutely convinced that without an attorney of Jimmy's caliber we wouldn't have gotten the result we did at our hearing. He made opposing counsel look like an amateur.
The paralegal we worked with was brand new to the firm, so there were a couple hiccups with communication, but all was forgiven once we saw Jimmy work his magic while trying to settle and in the courtroom. Family law isn't cheap, but the sense of confidence and dedication from Evans Law Firm was well worth the price.

Jimmy Evans talks a good game but in the end he is a joke. The support/legal staff at Evans and Peeks are a joke. They lost almost $12,000.00 of subpoenaed documents. They boxed up my original documents and sent them to opposing council (seriously).
I fired Jimmy after 8 months and about $20,000.00
