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.

Mr. Stein proved to be respected by the court staff and judge. He was a great advocate for my children throughout the process and kept them in front of key decisions- that was important to me.
Jerome was very effective at negotiating with apposing counsel, and conducted business with a class that sets him apart from the stereotypical lawyer.
He is a credit to his contemporaries and I am glad I met him.

Jerome has been there for me. Have contacted him by phone and text and he updates ne on status of court. He is excellent at getting point across to rhe other party of orders. I would recommend him.

Hired May 2013. Both parties anxious to divorce. Dozens of delays and non response or filings by Stein led to a delayed mediation date of Mar 4, 2015. Stein never advises or preps me for what is going to happen in mediation even after several pleas. Stein showed 1.5 hours late (claims weather but we were there), showed with no files or preparation for case, thank God I had my files and laptop and photos. Stein takes 3 client calls during my mediation, falsy mentions possible solutions I / we never discussed. I handled the rest of the meeting while he took calls. Stein asks me to text him a photo of my because he had friends to set me up with. March 4th, Stein was ordered to submit a QDRO for military, police pension, warranty deeds and divorce decree within 14 days. 10 days later/20/days/30 days/90 days later Jerome has yet to submit my police QDRO or divorce decree. I received 9 copies of the divorce decree with constant errors, MAJOR errors of palintiff and respondant, wrong birthdates, (his admin Tanya) is non responsive and does not ever give you correct documents. Stein claimed other party to blame for delays but now I am in talks with other party, I am finding out otherwise. Stein continues to take funds blindly from my account, but 22 requests for an invoice he has not supplied one yet claiming invoice issues that are long standing. His texts are unreadable, not only spelling errors but true "gotta guess what he is saying" If you ask about 3 things --- he might partially answer 1. I sent a 10 day demand letter in May and told him to process my divorce ( Ihave several months of child support waiting but can not get because the divorce not filed) or I was filing a grievance - he once again lied (I have proof) about why he delayed yet again, so I tell him I have NO choice but to file a grievance, he emailed me yesterday he is withdrawing from case. So give him your money, then let him not take care of you and then he gets to withdraw from case. This is going to be a long ride........................ i have spoken to other attorneys of how simple my divorce should have been, afterall we mediated, but Stein wont process paperwork or file correctly any of the QDROs, so now nothing. I welcome the opportunity to share my personal and factual truth with anyone.

I hired Jerome to represent me in my Divorce. He knew that what was most important to me was protecting my children. My husband was in the home when served and Jerome made sure that that was done while the kids were out of the house.
Divorce is hard no matter the situation. He was always sensitive to what I was going through and
always took my calls . He never made me feel I was interrupting him. He protected me and got
me a fair settlement. I am grateful for his expertise . He always put common sense in to the situation
which helped me make my decision. I am grateful. Thank you Jerome.

Mr Stein was a great help. He made sure that I understood every aspect of the case before any decisions were made and thanks to him I am walking away with almost everything I asked for. He wanted to fight for me and my rights and that let me know that He is willing to stand up and fight for his clients and won't back down. He looks out for your best interest and not his billable time like most attorneys I have met. Thank you Mr. Stein, you're one of a kind.
