I had to fire Helene in middle of a child custody case. She was hands down the worst attorney that I could have retained with needing a specialist with custody trials. She lied and manipulated us into thinking she would be diligent in handling our case. When it was time for court or client meetings, she literally turned into a bipolar opposite personality and had lost her memory of what she had told us. Her paralegal was constantly losing documents. This attorney will over charge you and bill you for documents that you provide to her repeatedly so watch out. She is very arrogant and so is her paralegal- not the type you want handling a custody case or anything to do with family law that requires trials. To myself and the others who observed her behavior, she is all about settlements and mediation. Settlements appeared to be more important to her when it came to trial days. This literally occured while we were standing outside of the court room for a hearing to commence with all witnesses present, where she would either attempt reset dates or literally be the bi-polar opposite personality as she was in her office and avoid having a hearing. This was after telling us that our case would need to heard and was not the type of case that could be mediated or settled out of court. This appeared to be more important to her to settle, regardless of what is needed to protect a child's safety. If you need a really good trial attorney, this is not what Helene will be able to deliver for you. Please note she appeared to be making a lot more money rescheduling our court dates than if she had gone to trial that day, and losing documents that were provided to her paralegal multiple times.

I love this ladies (Helene and Alice). They answered all my questions. Their advice was neat and clear. They fought for my case and I got the result that I wanted. Definitely I recommend Helene Parker

We were not referred to Helene, but read reviews online and are so glad we chose her. We were located out of state looking to modify visitation. What was once a simple modification went to full-blown litigation and Helene was there for our family every step of the way. She was realistic and to-the-point. Excellent advice given! I will say this, every single predicted event came to pass exactly as she had briefed us or anticpated. I'd also like to add that Helene and Alice are concerned with the children involved in a case, not just the parent that has retained her services. She had an active interest in my step-daughter's well-being and truly believed that my husband was her best shot at having a normal childhood. An excellent attorney! I would recommend her to anyone. We were blessed to have found her.

Very professional and knowledgable towards my needs. I had worked with several other attorneys in regards to my case and Helene Parker was the first attorney that not only gladly took the case, she was the first attorney that seemed to have any idea of how to go about accomplishing my needs.

Helene came highly recommended to our family through another friend after we were badly burned by two previous attorneys in a custody dispute. She was very willing and energetic to take on our case and bring the case to a full resolution in a very timely manner. She fought for my husband's rights with his daughter and would not settle for anything less than everything he was entitled to via Texas Family Code. She was very knowledgeable on the case and kept us informed every step of the way without hesitation. She was able to renew both mine and my husband's ability to trust an attorney and we would recommend her in a heart beat to anyone needing an attorney for custody matters. Her assistant Alice was also very knowledgeable and easy to communicate with regarding any questions or concerns that we had during our case. We will definitely be returning to Ms. Parker in the event we need further assistance with our case regarding enforcements of court order or anything that may come our way.

I was divorced as of March 28, 2013. What should have been a very simple divorce became a miserable complicated nightmare involving the IRS, splitting an annuity benefit, and finally mediation. Had it not been for Helene Parker and her excellent assistant Alice Seifert I literally would have been lost. They took the ball and ran with it from the beginning keeping me up to date all the way. I cannot express what their guidance and support meant to me as the whole process from start to finish was the most frustrating thing I've ever encountered in my life. Ms. Parker and Ms. Seifert were unbelievably supportive and encouraging throughout. I've had the opportunity to work with several lawyers and believe me when I tell you that you will never find another attorney and legal assistance as honest, professional and trustworthy as this team. Ms. Parker is extremely judicious when it comes to using her client's money as well, there were never any unnecessary calls or paperwork and I was always reminded of what something might cost and given the opportunity to decide how to handle it. I will forever be grateful that I found this team, if you need legal counseling do not look further you will never regret it!

Helene Parker is by far one of the best, if not the best, divorce and child custody lawyers here in Texas.
She's stayed on top of my very trying and difficult case through a divorce that took almost 3 years and a custody battle that is not finished yet.
I highly recommend her.
She and her staff are the real deal.

Ms. Parker was my divorce/custody attorney a few years back. My case was very complicated and very traumatizing for me and my child. After 2 years of battling with my ex-husband and his lawyers, I got exactly what I wanted.
To this day, I am grateful God brought me to Ms. Parker’s office and not anywhere else.
She is the only attorney I would recommend to anyone that needs a family lawyer.
