Review Linda Risinger
  • Child Representation

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Joel

    Let me start off by thanking God to have an Attorney like Mrs. Risinger! She goes to bat for her clients and develops a very good friendship outside of business, which I feel is very important. She really and truly put forth an effort that is second to none. Linda will always be an Attorney that I refer and will keep a great relationship with for a life time with what she's done for me and my son. Nobody is perfect, but it's a few that really and truly cares and Linda Risinger is one of those few!

  • Divorce with Child Custody client

    Posted by a client

    Let me start by saying that I was referred to Ms. Risinger by one of her past clients who was very happy with her representation and the outcome of her case.

    Initial contact was with her paralegal who answered her phone the first time I called. I told her paralegal about my situation which was a divorce with children and she indicated that Ms. Risinger could help. She then scheduled an appointment for me to meet Ms. Risinger to further discuss my case.

    When I meet with Ms. Risinger I explained to her my situation and she was confident that she could help. She was right!

    Working with Ms. Risnger was terrific. She is an absolute professional in every regard. She was very knowledgeable about how to strategically position my case for the best interest of my children and me. Understanding that this is a stressful situation she was prompt to take my call and return my calls. She spent time explaining to me whatever I inquired about. In the end I would say she more than paid for herself and saved me thousands of dollars due to extensive experience with Family Law cases.

    If what you are looking for in your situation is a responsive, knowledgeable, compassionate, understanding, professional to handle your Family Law case I would recommend Ms. Risinger with the highest regard. I am happy to have retained Ms. Risinger and very pleased with the outcome of my case.

    I have read a recent post here on her and complaining about their experience with her and I couldn't disagree more. Ms. Risinger can only deal with the facts of the case, her clients support and their willingness to trust her and follow her professional advice. After all that is why I retained her. I will recommend her to anyone I know that might be going through a tough time like I was.

  • Missed Communication

    1.0 star

    Posted by a client

    Linda Risinger is a lawyer in the Collin County, Texas area. She will tell you exactly what you want to hear and keep the case running.
    I have had Linda for many years. For a final hearing on a my family case, Linda shows up and starts arguing points that were not supposed to argued until a later date. It was also an enforcement hearing for my ex wife (who did not show up) and Linda failed to prepare or argue that case.
    Linda told me 'Give me 30 (or 45) days and this thing will be wrapped up.' Linda told me this in November 2014.
    Linda does not return phone calls or respond appropriately to me. Linda and her office staff a plagued by constant technical issues (i.e. phone does not work, network down, file not found, et al.).
    I realize that my case is not very interesting or important in the grand-scheme of things, but this simple case of adjusting my child support payments has cost me over $28,000 in lawyer fees and my wife gets to destroy my relationship with my children with no consequence.
    Save yourself some heartache and do not hire Linda Risinger.

  • Repeat Referral

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Jennifer

    I can’t say enough good things about Linda. She is upfront and honest and tells you from day one what she is going to do and gets it done. She was just as committed to winning my case as I was and always honest about any weaknesses in my case, which is something you don’t always want to hear but need to. We were very successful in court and it was clear to me that the Judge had a lot of respect for her. I am surprised that there is even one poor review as my experience went better than I had hoped for. I have referred her to several of my co-workers and will continue to do so.

  • Outstanding Attorney!

    She is very aggressive and knows the best strategy for your situation. Very organized and saved me from a Default Judgment! Linda trusted me with everything I presented to her and never doubted me from beginning to the end! She is very patient and performs all her duties in a professional mannet. I highly recommend her to anyone who really needs her vast knowledge of the Texas Laws. Her leadership and loyalty is in the highest regards. I'm taking this time to Thank You with everything I have and may God continue.to provide you all the knowledge and wisdom for those seeking your expertise and proper guidance!!!

  • Beware - You have much better options

    1.0 star

    Posted by a client

    I hired Linda to handle my divorce and custody battle. She promised results as all attorneys do but got zero results. She was disorganized, appeared to have more cases than she could manage, a revolving door of support staff, and always had excuses for not being responsive or buttoned up. She talked a good game at the beginning but in the end could not deliver progress or provide good legal strategy on how to navigate a heated legal battle. She did not perform well in front of the judge. She is not as expensive as some other attorneys, but if you want to save some money and NOT get your interests represented or defended as they should then maybe she is right for you. I say beware. She is not a strong attorney. How she can be in business for this long is a mystery.

    I hired Linda to help me with a custody suit. She was helpful and insightful. She guided me through the process and took time to make sure that I understood all steps of the process. When it got complicated, she was there for me. She made sure that I was a part of my kids lives in a real way. I can't think of any body else I would rather have by my side in a courthouse.

  • Best Decision I Ever Made

    Posted by a Divorce client

    I went to her with a coplex child custody and divorce case; she could not have handled it better and I wonder if some of the reviews are the other side to a divorce that she smoked. She was always available and would always listen to me. She was a fighter when I needed one and really got things done!
    From the very beginning to the very end, she was on top of my case and always had my best interest at heart. She was to the point and told me what I needed to hear, not always just what I wanted to hear. She was always prepared and always professional.
    Linda guided me through a very difficult situation and when it was over, made sure that everything was completed in a timely fashion.
    I used her after I fired my previous attorney and the difference was amazing. I always got copies of every document and she would be there to answer questions if I had any about what she sent. If I could not speak with her, she would make sure her assistant knew how to answer my questions. Her billings were fair and concise.
    I was truly blessed to find this attorney.

  • The worst attorney ever!!!!!!

    1.0 star

    Posted by a Child Support client

    Our first meeting was mostly consumed by her telling stories with about 2 minutes spent on my case. I had an agreement in hand and all I had to do was to get it filed. Nothing ever happened! Nothing! She said texting was her preferred method of communication. When my test didnt't get answered, I called and got one returned phone call until I fired her eight months later. As far as i can tell, she did nothing. When I replaced her with another attorney and requested a refund of my retainer she assured me it would be in the next days mail, that was over 6 onths ago. She won't take my calls and she won't return them and won't return any part of my retainer.
