If you are looking for an adoption attorney, look no further. From the day I called just to get info, I knew Kellye and Julie were "the ones". Julie was phenomenal at putting us at ease and knowing everything there was to know about a CPS adoption. She answered so many questions that we had been waiting on answers for and did exactly what she said she would do and worked swiftly on getting the job done. On adoption day, Kellye was like part of our family and made all of us feel special. We can't thank them enough for all they did for us.

We had a very difficult road to adopt our foster children. Our foster sibling group was in the media when they came to our home. Kellye cleared her schedule more than once to be available to us when our phone started ringing with television and newspaper people. She is incredibly knowledgable about law but, more importantly, she is PASSIONATE about what she does. She truly cares for her clients. She communicates that passion and knowledge in the courtroom. She is an amazing attorney!

Kellye and her staff are beyond amazing. They are very good at foreseeing obstacles and dealing with them before they become an issue. Communication is superb. Then when Kellye gets in the courtroom, her knowledge, competency, and fluid speech is astounding. I was in an out of court 13 times over 2 years for our case and she stayed a step ahead of everyone the entire time.

Kelley is very honest, trustworthy and knows her law! She cried with us and helped my family thru a very hard time! I would recommend her to anyone and would not hesitate to use her again.

I hired Kellye when my ex wife made a false report to CPS. She quickly took care of the situation and got CPS off my back. I could have lost my job and that did not happen.

I endorse this lawyer. I've worked with Kellye on cases. I also opposed her on cases when she was an Tarrant County Assistant District Attorney for CPS. Kellye is and excellent trial attorney with great knowledge of the law and CPS policies and procedures. She is one of the go 2 lawyers on CPS Interventions and Adoptions.
