Tough, smart lawyer
Anne Beletic represented me in my divorce. She was professional and focused from the start. Anne met the opposition counsel’s repeated dirty and unprofessional tricks head on and presented a cohesive and organized case. Because of her astute skills, the judge was presented with a crystal clear case in support of me keeping my 401K moneys because my ex had squandered his 401K and hundreds of thousands of our community funds. She taught me not to be wasteful of attorney fees by focusing on the most important points and not getting stuck ‘in the weeds’. She is a smart, tough attorney and a bargain for what she achieved on my behalf. I would strongly recommend her to help you to protect your assets.

Excellent Experience
My only regret is not hiring Anne from the beginning. My first attorney was unprofessional and left me at a huge disadvantage. Anne quickly got us back in the fight and was patient explaining the process and my rights as a father. My ex was abusing alcohol and putting my son in danger. Anne brought in the right experts to testify and educate a newer Judge. At the end of it all, I was awarded primary custody, child support and ongoing testing for my ex whenever she has possession. Divorce is a terrible thing but if you must do it, make sure you have amazing Attorney, make sure you have Anne Beletic.

Father's rights
My divorce was finalized in 2003, so I have had enough years to provide a long term review. Anne is someone who will not get caught up into the emotion of a divorce, as that can become long and costly. Her efforts are used strictly to get to the intended goal, not to waste time (and your money) to fight an unnecessary fight. In my case, the other counsel was much more interested in filing wasteful motions, writing unnecessary letters, etc...basically being a needless impediment in the process. Anne would not go down those rabbit holes, and she stayed above board and on point. In my case, I was in Kaufman County, and, as a father seeking rights to my children, the odds were astronomically against me. I hired Anne after the initial temporary orders had been submitted, and had to undo the mess that was done by my first attorney, and it was quite the mess. She handled it skillfully, tactfully, with great poise, and was ultimately successful. She never left me wondering if I was being fairly represented, as it was evident at each and every interaction. I could go on and on about Anne. She set the groundwork for a modification to the original orders 5 years later which ultimately had the children move in with me, and I was the primary custodial parent. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for. With Anne, you get the best.

A Lawyer You'll Want To Have On Your Side
I was referred to Anne by a close friend and client of hers. I had a very difficult case involving a lack of child support payments, child custody, and international complications. Anne not only stayed focused on the case and ultimate goal, but was not afraid to offer her professional expertise and recommendation on next steps. When we had differing viewpoints on the path forward, she listened attentively and worked with me on a solution that was beneficial to all involved. Anne was always focused on the children and ensuring the final results were in their best interest. Her tenacity, attention to detail, experience, persistence, and "don't mess with me" attitude make her a top notch lawyer you'll want to have on your side.

Straight shooter, strategic thinker, detailed and fights the good fight!
I came to Anne completely confused on what I was going to do with my situation. I had consulted with another attorney before Anne. He gave me little hope, until I spoke with Anne and realized that he was completely unwilling to go the extra mile. This is what Anne did for me: She listened, empathized with my dilemma, discussed strategic options, asked what I wanted and needed, coached me on what was realistic, allowed me to break down, became my confidant, was my cheerleader, knew the ins and outs of the law and my rights, meticulously studied the court and judge who met with us, worked so well with the opposing attorney, executed like a pro in court. She is a firecracker and will go the extra mile because she genuinely cares. She is intelligent and she knows the law, through and through. Even one year after my divorce finalized, she made sure I was taken care of in my decree by adding details I wasn't aware of or would have thought of. I trust her wholeheartedly and I would say she is Crème de la Crème of attorneys. She is worth every penny and will walk with you through this difficult chapter in life. Thanks Anne. Xx

Pitbull
Anne is a Pitbull in and out of court. Thinks out of the box and doesn't mind to push the envelope. When there is not compromise in divorce, you need her to be on your side. I was stay at home mom, working on my degree and i was lucky that i didn't end up on the street with my child. My ex is unstable vindictive person that no one can reason with, and i m happy that she finds solution for everything. She is worth every cent and i dont see my self using another lawyer when i know her worth and what she is capable of. Very respected lawyer , always remembered by everyone. She restored my trust not only in the legal system but in humanity.

Trustworthy, excellent reputation, and results-oriented
I contacted Anne when I was in need of a protective order against my son's father. Not only did she help me every step of the way in getting that, she is helping me work out some other very complicated details related to a custody agreement in another state. Anne is smart and has a comprehensive understanding of the law, as well as an excellent reputation and good rapport with Dallas county judges. Her level of confidence in the court house was comforting, particularly during a time when I was feeling especially vulnerable. It is important for me to work with a lawyer I can really open up to and hash out some very intimate and difficult details of my situation with. Anne has been sensitive to that, which I'm very appreciative of. I trust her judgement, and I trust her opinions and advice as I'm going forward with planning a future for myself and my child. I highly recommend her.

Divorce from Hell!!!!!
Anne was my second attorney in my divorce. Once Anne took my case she realized why I was in such a panic. My first attorney put me in a terrible place with agreeing to terms I fought against signing. It took us almost three years to get my divorce finalized. Anne and her assistant answered every question I had. They worked with me when I was emotional, mad, and scared. Anne helped me look for the good and to trust in her. Divorce puts people at their worst and Anne stood by me and fought for me. With my divorce in the state it was in when Anne took it over; I would have been lucky to get the divorce with the cloths on my back. Anne knows the laws and worked many nights fighting for my rights. She filed paperwork correctly when needed to stop contempt of court charges against me (due to me first attorney). She worked with me to keep the cost down. She is a Cristian woman with a conscience and a thoughtful and caring professional divorce attorney. This was not my first divorce but I am thankful that Anne agreed to take my case. I honestly don’t know where I would be if it were not for her. In the end, I survived; Anne protected me and helped me keep what was most important to me, my daughter and part of my retirement.

Professional in every way
In matters of family law that involve strong emotions, Anne Turner Beletic guides her clients to rational decisions with honesty and courage. We sometimes found her counsel at odds with our emotionally based opinions; however we were convinced by her loyalty to us as her clients and her professionalism to listen carefully to her advice. Her clear explanations based on the law and her experience supported her conclusions. Although difficult for us emotionally, we understood she was thinking of our long term best interests. We followed her advice. If we had not followed her advice, our circumstance would not have been resolved constructively. Over many years we have dealt with many corporate attorneys some of whom were known as "the best of the best." We understand that there are no perfect solutions to legal matters. We believe Anne Turner Beletic provided us with the best family law counsel we could have received.

Great Attorney
Anne went out of her way to help me with a very difficult child support case. The other side went through several attorneys which caused lots of problems. Anne hung in there and finely got me a trust set up for my learning disabled son that was paid with “fathers” IRA’s and 401K through till his 18th birthday. Unheard of! She made me feel confident and safe through this mess that took over a year. I would highly recommend Ann Turner Beletic. I owe her my now stress free life.

Ms. Beletic gets the job done
After first hiring the wrong attorney, I was very happy to hire the confident and realistic Ms. Beletic. The divorce was very ugly (like most of them) and she did get me the best deal possible. Ms. Beletic was emotionally supportive, realistic and made sure that the legal $$ drain ended quickly. I would very highly recommend Ms. Beletic!

Honest, smart and strong
Anne was recommended to me by a family friend. Not only was I dealing with a divorce which can be so difficult but my ex is also a divorce attorney and it didnt take much for him to make things difficult for me. But through it all Anne gave very sound legal advice and It was I obvious she knew her stuff. It was after getting to know Anne that I realized what a horrible family law attorney my ex was. Anne was always so attentive to me and not just with Legal advice but also with the emotional aspects of divorce and really helped me stay calm and focused and gave me hope. Anne also did sugar coat things or tell me what I wanted to hear but what I "needed" to hear! I would highly recommend Anne to anyone going through any family law issues and in fact in have recommended my brother to her as he had such bad experience with his attorney and I am confident that she will do an awesome job for him as she did for me!

Professional, efficient, a true advocate!
Anne Turner Beletic is professional, efficient, trustworthy, and extremely responsive. I have dealt with several family law attorneys in the Dallas area and wouldn't hesitate to recommend or retain her (again) if needed. She is sensitive to expenses, very responsive and reachable, and very knowledgeable. I was also impressed with her ability to quickly and thoroughly learn the intricate details of my case. Her attention to detail was extraordinary. I'm thankful that she represented me.

Helped me through a hard time with a professional and compassionate approach
Anne was recommended to me by a family friend. I am pretty skeptical by nature, so I entered the divorce process assuming I would not be able to trust anyone. Fortunately, Anne changed my opinion about that. She listened to what was important to me and coupled that with sound legal advice. Through each of the twists and turns, she listened and helped me devise a reasonable plan. Although I would never want to be back in the position that caused me to need her services, I would definitely recommend Anne if you find yourself in a difficult spot.

Integrity, Trust and Confidence
When you face the challenge of navigating the difficult process of separation and divorce, and you need a lawyer and partner you can trust and that works through the process in alignment with your values - Anne is your choice. She is compassionate but tough minded, and deeply knowledgable about the process - from initial consult through final signature on the decree - she will be there.

Anne Turner Beletic is tenacious.
Anne has been involved with three family issues over the past 15 years. The most recent was about three months ago. Each of the times she has represented me was a victory for me and for my son. Anne is a professional, caring, deliberate, lawyer. I consider Anne to be a friend not because of her expert legal skills but for the advice she has given me over the years in terms of family dynamics and raising my son.

Best in the business
Anne was extremely caring and compassionate, yet honest and forth coming with information about my case. She was able to come to a custody/visitation agreement that both sides agreed on with the child's best interest at heart. She is very detail oriented. I would highly recommend her because she is the best in the business!

"I struggled for a long time to find someone to refer my clients to when they have a family law issues to because there are so many attorneys in that area of law who just plain don't care about their clients the way that I do. Ms. Turner has been a breath of fresh air. She is an excellent attorney. I refer all of my clients with family law issues to her without hesitation. My clients who have had those issues have been happy with her representation. Also, since we work in the same building, I know that she is without fail the first person in and the last person out. She works very hard for her clients. I strongly endorse this attorney for all of your family law issues."
