Monty - the rock star !
To Monty Buhrow, Do you realize that you are a friggin rock star in my eyes? You may laugh but seriously - oh MY God - everything that happened yesterday, your grace, your talks, the stories you shared, the spin you've put on things in helping me gain perspective on things was so absolutely friggin unbelievable - an entire years worth of counseling never even scratched the surface... Jesus... All I can say is that you leave me speechless in who you are as a person and who you are as an attorney ... It may not mean much coming from a middle aged divoced unemployed social worker that has mommy daddy issues & major medical conditions - trying to make you laugh - but MY God..... The depth of your character and integrity is something I wish you could share with the rest of the world ... I've only benefited - selfishly I might add - to knowing you and being in your presence... So...thank you for being you and for helping me in this lawsuit against my parents... Sincerely Stef

A lawyer's lawyer - highly recommend!
My husband and I are both lawyers, but when we got sued, we relied on Monty Buhrow to represent us as we're relatively new to Texas and not familiar with Texas landlord tenant law. Monty was competent. He was very well versed in TX landlord tenant law. Not only that, he was incredibly familiar with various TX property codes that supported our case. Monty was also very responsive to emails, calls, and text messages. He was thorough in his communications with us during the 8 months from when we retained him to the trial. Monty exhibited the kind of confidence and know-how in the courtroom that you would want in your counsel. He was incredibly comfortable and familiar with the Tarrant County northeast courtroom procedures and judges. It felt like Monty practiced a lot in this setting, as if it was his "home court." Monty delivers. Our case went to trial today. And basically, we won on our entire security deposit AND attorney fees. Monty came prepared and delivered on his promise to get us our fair day in court. I would wholeheartedly recommend Monty should you need legal counsel. He makes a fantastic advocate.

An honest, responsive, down to earth attorney.... YES THERE IS AT LEAST 1
I have NEVER had a good experience with any attorney in my 52 years of life; until meeting Monty Buhrow. I found Monty thru the Fort Worth Bar Associations field of practice referrals service.. From our first meeting Monty was down to Earth, realistic about the potential outcomes of the case which made me feel comfortable about moving forward... There was never any pressure or unrealistic goals, dangling carrots if you will, used to persuade me to retain him or not. While many attorneys may do this upfront, Monty keeps to his initial promises. Every email I ever sent to him was returned the same day... moreover, most where returned within the hour. All calls where answered or returned within the hour and his private cell phone number was also given to me... .. In short, there is nothing this attorney ever said to me that he didn't deliver on. His correspondence with the opposing counsel were always copied to me at the time they were sent to opposing counsel. His letters are simply impressive, you always felt like you had someone in your corner. Monty won our case; had he lost, my judgement would not be any different... I AM CERTAIN OF THIS. If you need an attorney that really cares, that is really on your side, that earns his money... then do yourself a favor and at the very least talk to this attorney, my experience tells me you will not be disappointed.

Not Stereotype Lawyer
Monty was hired by my husband & myself when my Father continued to harass us after moving out of our home on his own accord. I had to find out how much further he could go after being served City Small Claims Court Papers? Monty tried to be reasonable & reassuring on this Family Case which should have never been started. Monty advised us even when it was hard to hear the real truth & what could actually happen to both of us. I started with a very good Lawyer who quickly tried to advise (as most people would)on Family Love & Reconciliation but what the exact Laws are. Either way a Lawyer or Father of 2 he took his Job very Serious, to the Point & explained the Law so we could understand. Monty won our case after a year with only one factor not closed but the others were closed against us. It was what Monty offered the Plaintiffs & they're lawyer allowed them to sign at Mediation. We were served papers again from Dallas County Courts. We of course went immediately to Monty's Office for Help. Needless to say Monty & his Team worked hard for the Last Matter of the Plaintiffs complaint. I began with a Lawyer but after 4 years we felt like Family. Monty charges less than the average Lawyer in the Metro Plex and also trusted us to pay the bill, but not go Bankrupt trying to pay him. It is so very hard to explain 2 Courts & years to finish this complicated case with a final closing Win! 3 days in the Courtroom, 13 Jurors, Opposing Lawyer with 4 persons, many Wittnesses with only my husband & I with Monty & Lori to Win this Terrible Case which I'm not sure your Average Lawyer could have Won? Would I recommend Monty Burhows to Freinds or Family?? I do every time I need to, I had a simple Will done for my single Mom Niece & my Brother-in-Law whom spent 7 weeks in ICU with no Living Will. Monty Burhows will work his heart out to listen to his Client but firmly tell you, he needs to be trusted to do His job.

Amazing
This will not be a normal review.. The man is smart ,very thorough, informative and just straight bad ass in court. If you want to get something done and understand how it will be done he is your man. You want someone that is confident and will install that confidence in you as well while they're working for you look no further and I mean that. Thank you Monty for all that you done for me you are an amazing individual.

Great Service
Monty helped me in getting a customer who didn't want to pay, to pay me for the remodeling services I did for him. Monty answered all of my questions and gave me multiple options to proceed with my case. He gave me peace of mind and helped me thru the whole process and got the customer to pay me.

Injunctive Relief From A Corporate Employment Agreement
Monty handled a case for me whereby my previous employer had filed an injunction against me claiming that I had violated terms of my employment agreement, thereby preventing me from working while we sought relief. Monty's tireless professional efforts helped secure relief from the injunction in less that 45 days, in spite of the fact that opposing counsel tried in vain to keep delaying a trial and mediation. During the trial stage, Monty was so well prepared that opposing counsel literally "gave up" and requested that the judge allow us to go to mediation to resolve. At the mediation, Monty was again so well prepared and well versed in the law, that the mediator ultimately ruled in our favor after only 1 hour of reviewing the facts.

A great help and very Professional
Monty has been very helpful and has gone way beyond what I expected. He has helped in business formation and now a dispute related to that formation. He has responded amazingly quickly to EVERY request I have made. I recommend him for your business legal needs. He has other lawyers in his office available to give advice in other areas of law.

A lawyer that I trust.
Monty Buhrow represented me in a landlord/tenant case this year and he was fantastic. I had a sensitive and unusual situation that he dedicated his time and talents to with mindfulness and ease. He was fully educated in everything pertaining to my situation. His professionalism and credibility in his business did not go unnoticed by me or the ones involved in the case. He even has a great sense of humor that kept me positive in a difficult time.

Be wary!
Talked a great game in the initial consult. Hired him and paid the retainer fee (quite significant amount), stated would definitely get a refund, the other party didn't have a leg to stand on. Knew the judge and would get the settlement easily. Burned through the initial retainer, had to pay 2 more additional times to have a slush fund available. 1 year later, still didn't go in front o f the judge, said should probably just accept their offer now (much lower than damages and no attorney fees) and move on!

Response from Monty Buhrow January 4, 2018
I am of course disappointed to see someone dissatisfied with how the case concluded. Ouch! Since you’ve withheld your name, I can’t readily identify who this review is coming from, but if my instinct is correct, attorney fees weren’t recoverable in your case - and that made continuing the fight somewhat questionable from an economic standpoint since you were paying for the case on an hourly (not contingency fee) basis. We discussed that fact throughout the case - how every penny spent on legal was ultimately reducing the end-of-day recovery, so proceed with great caution - and at some point you agreed that it was best to get as much as possible and move on. You APPROVED the settlement; I didn’t force it. (That would be unethical, perhaps illegal.) I remain sorry, however, for your apparent ill sentiment and hope you’ll place the blame where it belongs - with the opposing party’s unreasonable delay. If you would like to meet with me to discuss this further, please let me know.
