Very Thorough and Worth Her Fees
I highly recommend O'Connell Law for family law issues. I hired her for an issue after my divorce was finalized and the quality of representation was much better than what I received during the divorce process. She explained every step of the process and I never felt lost or like I wasn't sure what was happening or why or where I was in the process. Her communication with me left me feeling confident in both her as an attorney but also confident in my decisions during the process. She gave me MUCH information regarding each possible decision and I was equipped with the knowledge I needed to make the best possible decisions for my family. I know, from personal experience, that not all attorneys take the time to explain all of the information that you need during divorce, modifications and all that goes along with family law issues. She's patient with questions and very responsive. When Jill was not in the office, or otherwise unavailable, her paralegal was quick to respond or communicate information that I needed. She would always communicate my questions to Ms. O'Connell if she wasn't sure of the answer. This was important to me since, many times, at a different legal office, I would receive incorrect information from the paralegal, which would ultimately cost me money. Divorce and modifications are issues that you need need someone walking with you, guiding you through the process, step by step, and that's exactly what you get with this law firm! I've recommended O'Connell Law to friends and will use her again in the future, if needed.

Fight for me
Jill used every law to fight for me. and got me out of a bad situation. Her research is scary good. She finds information that the other people do not want the judge to know.

Excellent Support
Jill O'Connell is an excellent attorney. Her supportive, direct, discerning advice was helpful during my stressful legal situation. She took the time to listen and fully understand what my desired outcome was, then gave me her direct, honest opinion on pursuing my case.

Stress Reliever and Great Divorce Attorney in One
Jill was my second attorney in a 9-month divorce case and was truly a God-send. She always kept me informed, sent me updates, and was available for calls (or returned mine back within 24 hours) and she has a very professional and polite staff. With Jill I quickly became extremely relieved and confident of what the case outcome may be and in her ability to get it there due to her understanding of the law and in depth law experience. Jill was also EXCELLENT at diffusing stressful situations and in dealing with a very difficult opposing council, spouse, and client at times while she maintained a professional, respectful, and patient demeanor. I would definitely recommend her. Thanks for everything!!!

Denton County's Finest Attorney
Jill was my second attorney in a 6 year custody case. Jill had to take the first year that I hired her working through my previous attorney's shortfalls. Walking into my final hearing, I was extremely confident in her ability to represent my case. Jill took the time to understand me, my child, and my case and always maintained a professional and respectful attitude while dealing with a difficult opposing counsel/client. Jill really did make a difficult time easier.

Even though my case took way too long, she always kept me informed, sent me updates when they got them, and if I had any questions I could call them and I would get a call back within 24 hours. Thank you for all your hard work!

Jill made an unbearable event, bearable. She was very professional yet still very personal.
Jill O'Connell is an impressive counseler. She was always quick to return phone calls and keep me informed. I can not say enough positive about this individual. I went through a horrible divorce. And Jill made things go as smoothly as possible. She took the time to listen to my story and my requests. She was truely a God send.

Jill was the right lawyer and the right time...a God send
I found Jill in the Shepherd's Guide as I was seeking a lawyer that shared my beliefs and would have integrity. I was NOT disappointed. Jill was not only sensitive and understanding, but sharp, on top of her game, and willing to do her research to find the truth concerning the law as it pertains to specifics of my case. I can honestly say she is an advocate for what is fair under the law, and her goal is for a clear understanding of the law by all parties involved. Jill's professionalism is superb when dealing with difficult people. I witnessed that as well during my case and for that I give her a "high five". I truly appreciate her service and consideration when it came to the fees as well. Everything was up front so there were no surprises. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a God fearing attorney and would not hesitate to request her services again, should a need arise. When I say she was the right lawyer at the right time, you can trust me on that.

Highly Satisfied Client
Overall, Jill was very helpful with my collaborative divorce process. She was knowledgeable of the laws and processes affecting my case, and was very flexible with my schedule and travel requirements. Additionally, her staff was always prompt and curteous.

Outstanding from promise to over-delivery
Going through a divorce is difficult but Jill is a rare find for someone who is both sensitive and tough. I found Jill to be exactly what I needed from our first visit to the final divorce decree.
