Divorce Attorney for the win
Two strong words to describe this law firm- Efficient and Reliable. I was in desperate need of a divorce attorney after having let go of my first lawyer during my divorce and came across Katie Lewis on google. I am so glad I chose them. Everyone on the team from Katie to my attorney Andrew and his team were so easy to work with. They did a quick review and immediately came up with a game plan. With the appropriate motions filed and hearing requests, I was able to get a temporary order for child support set in place and shortly after, reach a successful settlement in my case. I would also like to say during this unfortunate event in my life, the firm was so thoughtful. They send a care package and frequent correspondence with additional resources providing information on coparenting, financial planning during a divorce etc. The team also did a monthly check up to make sure I didn’t have any questions or concerns. My lawyer was quick to respond, offered sound advice and kept in mind what was important for me settle my case. I highly recommend Katie Lewis for your family legal matters.

THE BEST EVER!
I just reviewed my closing letter and literally almost cried! This journey was a tough one. I went into this so afraid of what was to come but me reaching out to Katie-Lewis Law was the absolute best thing! They were all so attentive to what my child and I wanted and needed. Always truthful and empathic, actually listening and answering my every concern and question. I truly cannot think everyone enough for the role that you played and the support that was received around the clock. I appreciate them all so much and will be forever thankful they were my legal team in this case. May you all keep shining and being who you are! The Katie-Lewis Family Law will always have a special place in me and my family's hearts.

Wonderful, down to earth,and very Professional
I hired Katie to represent me in the custody battle for my daughter when searching Attorney's that represent fathers. I had hired two lawyers before her and they were absolutely awful. After spending thousands of dollars on two wasted attorneys, I finally came across to Katie's profile. In the end, I couldn't be happier with my choice. I knew that it would be an uphill battle because their is a theory that the judge sides with the mother. Katie explains everything in detail and is very honest about her thoughts and opinions. After multiple sessions in the court room, she assisted me in getting full custody of my child, which I just never thought I would actually get. The mother actually doesn't have a set schedule either, it has to be agreed upon with the child. (which my child is now a teen) which eases my mind since the mother and my child never had a positive relationship from the start. It was a very stressful process but she eased my mind and helped me to push through. I would recommend her to any absolutely anyone who would listen. The two previous attorneys, left me with no hope, but with Katie, I could see the light at the end of my tunnel. She's so easy to get along with and she doesn't make you feel uneducated if you don't know the court system. I am so glad I found her and I hope that she can help others out like she did me!

Excellent choice if you are facing a divorce
I didn't want a divorce, but didn't have a choice. I spoke with Katie and she put me at ease and I felt good about going forward with her as my attorney. Katie was a great attorney. She fully explained everything to me that I was facing and what my options were as well as what the best path was to go with for my situation to end well. I couldn't have asked for better representation. She made me aware of things that I wasn't, walked me through everything and in the end I felt at peace and confident about everything thanks to Katie. Katie also made sure to close any loop holes that could come back to haunt me later on so I didn't have to worry about those. I walked out with what anyone would consider as fair and safe a deal as one could expect in a divorce. I definitely recommend her if you have to go through a divorce.

A great attorney during a difficult time
When my husband left me and it was clear he would not return, Katie Lewis & O'Neil & Attorneys came highly recommended. Katie handled my case with professionalism and compassion. I always felt secure knowing my needs were her top priority. Thank you Katie, Sandra & Claire for making this difficult situation not so painful!!

Excellent Divorce Attorney
My son needed an attorney quickly to represent him in a divorce suit. Not having much time, nor being familiar with a divorce attorney in Dallas, I panicked. I turned to the computer and searched for The top ten divorce lawyers in Dallas, County. The first name on the list was O'Neil Law Firm. They had a rating of 10. After reading several other reviews on other law firms, I kept going back to the first one. I called their office and set up an appointment with Katie Lewis. From the start Katie was very professional, caring, compassionate, knowledgable and a pleasure to be around. Katie was on top in every aspect in preparing for the temporary hearing. She kept us informed on everything and made sure we understood everything. Katie helped us get the information we/she needed to prepare and handle the case. Katie was patient and understanding if we needed more time to find information for her and would even offer us an alternative solution. Katie really cares about her clients and their needs. As for the hearing Katie was very well prepared, very knowledgable of the law. We knew we had some hurdles to jump and that the outcome might not be what we wanted, but because of Katie's knowledge, professionalism and her commitment to her client we got an awesome outcome! Katie is very respectful to everyone, the judge, the opposing attorney, her clients. Katie is an absolute pleasure to work with and be in the presence of. I thank God for making that first phone call and him connecting us to Katie Lewis. I would rate Katie a 10! I would also like to say everyone we came in contact with at the O'Neil Law Firm is very professional, courteous and friendly!

Recent Divorce
I was referred to Katherine "Katie" Lewis by another attorney that I work with, and I am very glad that he passed her name along to me. She kept me informed in regard to the process and sent me regular correspondence, usually on the same day that it was sent to my ex's lawyer. She was sensitive to some requests that I had that were not standard, but helped me to walk away from an unwanted divorce feeling better about the process. I walked into her office hoping for only 40% custody at best and now enjoy 50/50 custody with my ex. The additional 10% more time with my child is priceless and worth every penny I spent in legal fees, which seemed pretty standard. I am very happy with my decision to use Katie and would do so again if additional services are needed.

Personal Review of Katie Lewis
When I first met Katie was in 2008 and I was filing for divorce. Katie was very professional from the very first time that we met to discuss my case. She is very well versed with the law, understands how to handle herself in the court room, and is very confident with what she is doing. I believe that this confidence comes from her knowledge of the law. She had a complete understanding of my case and knew the challenges that we were going to be facing. I was asking for joint custody of my son, and being a man asking the court to grant that has its own set of challenges. Katie always kept me informed and updated on the status of my three and half year divorce case. So after the final trial I recieved joint custody of my son and I feel like Katie was the reason for the final results. I would highly recommend Katie to represent me if I ever needed a Attorney again.

Run away quickly!
Let me be totally transparent and tell you I specifically told Katie prior to her taking the case exactly what I wanted representing me on our phone consultation. At my temp orders hearing we got totally destroyed by an attorney that had my ex wife's case for 2 weeks and Katie had 6 months to prepare. They had me pay for and take a parenting class that Grant said the judge would make us take in his orders....boy was he wrong! I had to fire Katie and Grant and hire another firm after spending $24,000.00 to get what was very subpar service. Again run don't walk away from this attorney before spending the money.

Disappointing experience
For how easy my divorce was (very amicable), the cost was overly expensive. I still question a few of the charges as I couldn't figure out what they were referring to. (And I kept a detailed log.) I had to email her team multiple times to get a response when I had a question. Part of her commitment was to provide a status letter every two weeks of the status of my case. I never once received one--even after I asked about it. The question was simply disregarded as were other concerns I voiced. My guess is that more volatile divorces got the attention and I wasn't a priority. No doubt she's smart, but I was disappointed.

Not for the poor
Only reason I got there was because my Attourney switched to her law firm and I wanted to finalize my case. Retainer was 7500 or full access to my credit card, because they ask for replenishment every week. Unreasonable bills and rude staff, one girl was yelling at me because I asked where my emails are, and she argued that it was my servers fault why I did not received them. They billed me for team meetings, staff instructions, mediations I did cancel, they just burned my money through, as a single mom of two who works in a low income job, this was painful to see, all I needed was a final order, after spending over 11000$ , they fired me for communication breakdown, which was inaccurate, and unethically. At the end I worked it out on my own with my ex, of course, maybe I could have gotten more money, maybe not, but I’m happy not to deal with their bills anymore. If you got money to spend, go for it, otherwise stay away.
