Mr. Stein is a name that has an unforgettable image. I was referred to Mr. Stein by a friend who I trust with my life as well as my children’s lives, for my case. The moment I first spoke with him, I was astounded. Mr. Stein explained my case in detail and as he explained, my case prevailed. I do not have any complaints on Mr. Stein whatsoever. I can comfortably state that not only did I hire an attorney; I also made a new friend who knows how to listen and understand me. Overall, rating for Mr. Stein was satisfactory in my case. We kept an open line of communication, he was very informative, attentive to his detail, shows concern for the children and was best interest in the case of my family and I.
If you are seeking an attorney for your personal circumstances, just as he was referred to me, I would definitely refer Mr. Stein to anyone if not everyone. He was sincere, compassionate and showed concern under my life changing events.
Need I mention I referred my brother to Mr. Stein for his case? I cannot speak for my brother however; he spoke highly about Mr. Stein as well, to me. I would anticipate he sends a review’s to Mr. Stein’s profile.

I'm not sure what happened with the guy leaving numerous bad reviews below, but our experience with Jerome has been excellent. He came highly recommended from a lawyer in another county. He stayed in touch with us, calling us or emailing us back whenever we contacted him, which was often. He worked in the child's best interest. He made what was a very bad situation gradually better. Then, for our final hearing, he worked tirelessly with us for hours putting together a case from thousands of pieces of evidence to condense it into something that showed the truth and substance of our concerns for the safety of the child. The day of our final hearing, he strolled into the courtroom unassumingly, cheerful as ever, and orchestrated a day-long final hearing with grace, experience, and relentlessness. We had high demands and many concerns, and Jerome made sure the court addressed them all. By the end of the day, the judge had personally ordered even MORE than we requested for protection of the child. Additionally, he continued to be gracious and courteous to the other side, even when they were obstinate towards him.
If you want to hire a lawyer who will take a sincere, personal interest in your case, you, and your family, then Jerome is your guy. Bring him your evidence, and he will work with it to make your case. When you have questions or concerns, contact him and trust that he will call back with an answer. After knowing Jerome for over a year, we know that not only did we hire a good lawyer, but we hired a good person.

He did call me several times for the retainer and contiued calling for what seemed a reasoble retainer at thr time. Court came along and he wasnt prepped. Having to read the pleading for the first time with a copy I presented callinghe did not have one ready for the case. The result was not a favorable outcome as expected.
Several of us appear to have had similar experiences the last few years and hope no one else is left a victim of similar circumstance. I had to bring to Mr. Stein"s attention that it is frowned upon by his peer review board, and he may face consequences for neglecting client needs. When client phone calls are ignored, money taken without a move forward with pleadings, prep for court, etc., as well as a lie about the current status of the case which happened to me this option may need to be explored.

Hired Mr. Stein to handle what he described as a "clear cut " custody case. We provided tons of documentation along with a $3000 retainer. Several months have now passed and zero activity on the case. Paperwork was never filed with the court. And attempts to contact him via phone, email, texts have been ignored.

i hired this attorney for a custody case, he not only didn't do anything, the papers he claimed he filed were the wrong papers, then he had the names wrong on the papers, he never once even got a court date. i asked him for an itemized statement and have never received one to this day. After paying this man $3000.00, I expect some kind of movement on the case, he kept saying he would send me back a refund which also has never come. He lied and stole my money. would not recommend this attorney to my worst enemy.

I hired this attorney when I was running into visitation interference with my ex and my daughter. Mr. Stein came responded to my inquiry almost immediately and provided me information and a point of view I needed at the time. He continued to fight for what I wanted and knew when to give. He has been available for me to talk to most of the time when need, however that would be my only negative comment, I would prefer more detailed communication from time to time HOWEVER, the frequency of contact when needed out weighted that. He would answer questions when asked and provided additional help on subjects that were not related to my family legal matters, which is where I can say I was truly impressed. Lets be honest no lawyer is perfect and there were some hiccups along the way but I truly felt Jerome cared about my situation and was willing to go above and beyond to make sure my rights as a father were not only protected but enforced...and that is something you cannot put into words or place a dollar amount on....before he came along my visitation was constantly being changed or denied and the fact that I finally am able to build a relationship with my child is something I cannot truly express in enough words to convey exactly how much that means to me. I hope to continue working with Jerome in the future on other legal matters.

Jerome came highly recommended from a lawyer we trust from Gregg County, so he is well-known across Texas. We started out with a lawyer that dragged our custody litigation out to three years, never writing temporary orders or stopping the other party from violating serious injunctions. Our child was and is at risk of harm. The day we called Jerome, he responded immediately, let us pay an affordable retainer, and got busy on fixing our serious issues. We are still in litigation, but Jerome has been a godsend, giving us the confidence and guidance we lacked for so long. He has already made sure that the other party is compliant with what paperwork and laws there are. He has lifted us up and taken the welfare of our child seriously. He responds to all messages, emails, and phone calls in a timely manner. He is assertive, quick thinking, and respectable. If you need swift help with a family law issue, we recommend Jerome. We will update this review when our litigation is over. Josh and Kate

Jerome came highly recommend from my sister. Jerome made me feel confident in my case, and I am very satisfied. He always responds to my emails and if I didn't understand something, Jerome would make sure to explain it to me. I don't know what I would do if I had not hired him.

My child support was backed up for several months, pending a divorce the - The Ex was mandated to pay the child support but because Stein had still not filed the divorce - my child support would not be distributed. Stein said there is nothing that could be done; but hiring another attorney, within 24 hours, the child support disbursement office has since returned the child support to the Ex and now the EX pays me direct.

I have been stewing over my previous experience with Jerome Stein in regards to invoicing and ignored requests. Last year, I was in the middle of a tedious divorce and I needed invoicing from Jerome to prove to the court my expenses in regards to division of assets and expenses. What I thought was a basic request became an arduous ordeal. I am not sure why I would need to request invoices when it is the ethical responsibility of the attorney to furnish said information to their client. I am still considering a lawsuit against Jerome as he kept requesting more funds without stipulating why and what the previous expenses where used for. I suggest that you keep this guy on a short leash and offer no funds in addition to the retainer if he is not able to provide invoices in a timely manner. In addition, I have requested to meet in person at his office and he consistently offers coffee shops and other locations. Not sure of the reason for this but red flags are definitely apparent so do your homework.
