Excellent competent and empathetic
Jeff is probably the best attorney in Dallas Fort Worth in my opinion. He is diligent and thorough. He covers all the bases. He knows the law backward and forward and will give you options and good advice. You will not go wrong with Jeff. He understands everything about the process and has experience with every type of judge or spouse you can imagine. You will be protected and that is what you want and need in a family lawyer- I highly recommend him without hesitation.

This guy will get it done
If this shark is in the waters, you better be on his side of the courtroom. Extreme professionalism. Very intelligent. As you explain your situation, he knows the exact thing to do to take care of it. He is on top of things, and you do not have to worry about this law group stalling, forgetting, or losing focus on your case. From the extremely wealthy clients to just average Joe families, Jeff makes you feel as if your case is his top priority. He was very patient with our lack of understanding about some client/lawyer issues, and would always explain things thoroughly. When it comes to strategy and courtroom demeanor, I doubt you will find a close equal in the metroplex. The cost is a bit high for just a regular Joe family, but we knew it was an investment in our kids that could not be overlooked by using an "okay" lawyer. If you want the best, Jeff Anderson is worth the investment. We had another attorney for many years, but we are grateful to Jeff for really helping us understand what the process should actually look like. It is not only that he is a talented attorney, many are, but Jeff has been taking in family law since he was a little boy. I doubt you will find another attorney that knows the law and its niches backwards and forwards like this guy. If you have a case that you just cannot take a chance on...call Jeff.

Well Rooted DFW Family Law Attorney
Jeff is an amazing resource for family law situations. 15 years ago he helped me with my divorce and custody battle and again in 2017 with a modification. His knowledge of and relationships with Collin County courts proved invaluable. Jeff and his team value the client relationship and has a reputation from both clients and the Courts for his Honesty and Integrity. He assisted me with Divorce, contested custody, mediation, social-study, possession modification, home school, temporary orders, emancipation

Outstanding Attorney
Jeff is an outstanding attorney. I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer. Divorce is devastating in and of itself but Jeff was always very personable and understanding throughout the entire emotional process. He even had me laughing a few times, which is good for the soul. Knowing I am a teacher, he was very conscious of using his time wisely to get information to me. At the same time he was very thorough in every aspect of the divorce not leaving anything undone. Jeff fighting for my rights and/or needs is where his incredible talent shines. Jeff is an impressive, professional, extremely skilled lawyer. I am beyond grateful to have had him as my attorney!

Jeff is an expert in his craft...the first, last and only lawyer you will need.
Jeff Anderson, the ONDA Law Firm and his entire support staff were the ultimate professionals in managing and executing each step of the dreadful divorce process. The divorce was not something I wanted; Jeff took the time to understand the situation, my needs and wants, as well as educate me on my rights and the process to come. Jeff was diligent in taking on the burden a divorce creates, keeping me promptly informed with each development from opposing counsel and always protecting me and my best interests as a professional and a father. Divorce is an ugly thing that can happen for a number of reason and can have a number of outcomes for better or worse, but I couldn't imagine having a better lawyer in my corner than what I had with Jeff Anderson. Jeff, you are the best at what you do. Thank you!

Five stars will never be enough!
I hope you never need a divorce attorney, but if you do, go to Jeff Anderson. Jeff guided me through an incredibly toilsome and complex divorce. My ex-wife's attorney was difficult and had a reputation for intentionally prolonging divorce proceedings. Jeff and his team carried me across the finish line.

Great Decision
Going through a divorce was such a helpless feeling. As a man I felt I was at the mercy of the courts. With my previous attorney the divorce went on for over a year, over $20k spent, with everything still up in the air and no end in sight. When I met Mr. Anderson his demeanor was professional, stern, comforting, and most reassuring. I hired him at the last minute but I couldn't take spending another five thousand and not a thing done. He assembled his team and worked tirelessly and told me not to worry, everything would be taken care of. When we walked into the courtroom, Mr Anderson always had a strategy and he was able to adapt to whatever was thrown at him. I could tell he was loving what he was doing and fighting for me. I was on edge and he was calm and collected. We walked out of that court room 30 minutes later with not only a final decision, but much more than I asked for. Now it's time to heal. Thanks to Mr Anderson I can finally move on. Hiring him was the best decision I ever made throughout the process.

Top Notch Attorney
His presence is powerful. Top notch, trustworthy, and caring are just some of the first words that come to mind which describe him. What took my former attorney a year and several thousand dollars, Mr. Anderson had solved in 30 minutes. He had done his homework, was very thorough, and left no detail to question. Mr. Anderson was worth every penny!

Captain Pit Bull(Mr. Jeffrey Anderson)
Mr. Anderson whom I dubbed "Captain Pit Bull" for obvious reasons is the finest lawyer I have ever been associated with in my thirty five years of high profile professional public service. When Mr. Anderson took over my case from another lawyer, he literally got more accomplished in the first 2 hours than my previous lawyer had done in two years. I was and still am astounded. Mr. Anderson also along with a special counsellor for my son, took time to help guide me(as an older father of an only child) through parenting skills that not only helped the custody case, but "was the best thing for my son" and the majority of the time, that time spent by Mr. Anderson on personal matters with my son did not contribute to his pocket book. He bills realistically and fully guards his paralegals(affectionately dubbed BULLETTES, again by me)and their paralegal leader is a very personable and efficient Chief Bullette, Ms. Sharen . I know of no way that my nasty case could have been handled any better than did the Very Professional "Team Pit Bull". Thank Yall for giving mine and my son's lives back ! I will be forever indebted !

The worst attorney ever
I paid Jeff and his friends roughly $80,000 for the worst job ever. My MSA resulted in nearly twice the Texas maximum child support for about half the possession time. How? I would love to write more. Jeff keeps taking down my reviews from this site. Avoid him at all costs. The word crook does not begin to describe this man.
