Couldn't have asked for a better attorney!
Chip was very nice and understanding from the first meeting we had with him. He listened and make sure we understood the adoption process, and was very upfront with us when need be. In my opinion, what made Chip stand out from others attorneys is that he was easy accessible. If I called, he usually answered or he would call me back within a timely matter. Chip was an overall great attorney and person, he made us feel as though we were not just "another case" to him but that we really mattered and that our wellbeing as a family was his upmost priority. I can not say enough wonderful things!!

Excellent Attorney
Chip is an excellent attorney. He was my anchor in the most trying time in my life. I recommend him to everyone needing family law attorney. When I was served with papers to change primary custody of my children, Chip was the one attorney who listened to the whole story and told me the exact legal rules regarding my case. Several other attorneys told me they wouldn’t even touch my case without a very large retainer upfront. Chip stayed in touch with me throughout the process and I maintained custody! For this, I am forever grateful.

A godsend
Chip helped get my daughter through a divorce and handled to cases after that. As long as the ex files in TX we will continue to use Chip. Thanks for all your help

Very professional and knowledgeable
Very easy to deal with, very professional and very specific in their goals. I didn't get the false promises I have had in the past by other attorneys needing to take my money. No doubt I will use them again in the future

Best Lawyer I've ever experienced
I had such a great experience with chip. So insightful and extremely knowledgeable about his craft. It's very rare to find a lawyer like him and especially one who cares like he does. Very thankful and would recommend him to everybody that asked for a good attorney.

Honest Attorney
A couple years ago I had called Mr. Jarvis for some advice on a legal matter. Not only was he helpful he really took the time to lay out all my options. I felt extremely comfortable with him. He's truely great at what he does and I never felt he didn't have my best interest at heart. I've referred multiple people to him and everyone has felt exactly the same. Thx for being one of the good guys!

A Great Man, Lawyer and Veteran
Chip has represented us several times. He has been my husbands attorney for a long time. He was on point, professional, and plays hardball for his clients. He is very straight up and has never failed to tell us how it could go or what to expect in family law cases. He is a true asset to Collin County and its citizens. He has won case after case for my husband and we wouldn't use anyone else. He has truly helped our blended family become one. If you have time, I would suggest you sit in on a case he is working. You will be amazed how his words and technique can give you pure hope. Mrs. Venegoni

Amazing attorney
I used Chip (Harvey Jarvis) as an attorney for my divorce. He was amazing and was very helpful and compassionate thru the whole process. He was very professional and worked in a timely manor.

Case of First Impression
I had a case that hasn't been touched on before. My circumstances were rare. I had talked to an attorney or two before who had no desire to hear me out. Chip treated me and my situation with the up most respect. He was truthful with me even when I didn't want to hear it. I had days where I wanted to scream and he was more than willing to talk with me and calm me down. Truly one of the best lawyers I have ever encountered. He is a real person and truly cares. He doesn't treat you like a job. He gets invested.

Child support matter
Mr. Jarvis represented my wife on a child support reduction case.We had little to no hope. Mr.Jarvis was was very up front and honest from day 1. He had to transfer the case from Denton County to Collin County with no flaws. At the final hearing he represented so well the reduction wound up being less then half of what was expected. He is the best Family law attorney I have ever seen. I have been in Law enforcement for 15 years.
