Anna is AMAZING!!
Anna was very understanding and considerate of my situation and wanting to get my case taken care of right away. As soon as I hired her, she jumped right on it, contacting the DA's office, and got them to not file the charge that was pending against me. She was also able to talk to my parole officer, and submit a document from the DA stating they were not picking up the charge for me. My parole then lifted the blue warrant off of me. This all got settled within a matter of days, and my parole officer said I was really lucky, that this usually doesn't happen with a family violence charge. All thanks to Anna for getting this done!

Class A DUI reduced down to Class B Mis
Anna Summersett is a true Professional! She was very helpful and knowledgeable in helping me navigate through a very tough DUI case in Tarrant County. She took great initiative and was able to push hard to ultimately get my case lowered down to Class B. I am very thankful for all of her work and would without a doubt recommend her as an attorney.

Felony deduced to Misdemeanor
Commited a crime violent Felony crime this past summer that carried a 2-10 year sentence and up to a 10k fine. This was my first offense so needless to say I was petrified. Though there was substantial evidence in my case proving my guilt, Anna saw to it that I was not harshly penalized for it. I ended up getting no jail time, fined $100 bucks, few months probation, will request for a non disclosure, & last but certainly not least, it was deduced to a MISDEMEANOR. Anna & staff was informative, HUMBLE, kind, & understanding. I would rate and recommend VARGHESE SUMMERSET with a 20 star rating if I could and to anyone in need of legal assistance. I could not be more happier with her service and satisfied with my legal outcome. Thank you so much Anna. God Bless you and your firm.

Best firm ever!
This is the best law firm ever, and I had the best attorney she was able to get my case dismissed without having to ever go to trial. They also have a great communication software tool so that you are always in touch with your attorney and never having to wait for a telephone call back as well as all your documents and notes are at your fingertips through this software. I will definitely use them if I ever need them again. Thumbs up.

Great Lawyer!
I searched for the best lawyers in Fort Worth Texas and the name Anna Summersett came up in Google and Avvo. I had hired another lawyer from another firm but I quickly changed my mind after the first phone conversation. After the first meeting, I could tell that I had settled for the best. I was charged with theft and I was scared that it would scar my future endeavors and possibly face deportation since I am an immigrant. The whole team was on my side! Anna being the captain and Alex Boyd her side kick. I was constantly updated on matters regarding the case and was advised promptly and ahead of time to complete online theft classes and community service. My case was dismissed and I don’t have to do any services to the community nor am I held under probation. I wish I had taken Anna the minute I was charged but anyway, it was never too late. She is kind, very professional and above all a winner!!

Freedin
I was set up to face three felony counts of stalking. Those charges come with a minimum of two to ten years per count. Upon hiring the office of Varghese Summersett I felt confident with her legal representation. She walked me through the charges, and the paperwork thoroughly explaining what could happen. The tremendous effort put forth by the team has paid off greatly as the charges were reduced to only ONE count of Criminal Trespass, a class B misdemeanor. Now instead of facing six to thirty years in a federal prison, I have deferred adjudication for two years. Hopefully I will not have to obtain legal representation in the future, however if I do this great team will be the first office I contact. The firm particularly excels in keeping in contact with their clients. I would recommend this office to anyone who needs a lawyer. Deserving of five stars easily.

Great Attorney
I was arrested for a assault of bodily injury of a family member . I hired anna Summersett right away based on what she presented to me at my consultation . She was super responsive to emails even after business hours which is not common for many lawyers. I also never had to show up to one court date . Anna was able to dismiss my case within 3.5 weeks. Highly recommend her, if you want the best outcome for your case.

Great Attorney!
I just want to say that Anna asked me to trust in her when I had no idea what was even going on. I was charged with Assault with Bodily Injury, for an assault my son and his friends did. I had never heard of a parent being charged for what their child had done. Anna told me to be patient and trust in them and I did. It took almost a year but my charge was dropped! So if you ever need a great lawyer call Varghese and Summersett . Thanks so much Anna!

I beleave that the representation on his behalf was adiquit,and I am satisfied thus far.

| Consulted Attorney
I can only say Thank You so many times.
To Whom It May Concern: The following is a brief summary of my experience of having a felony charge and having Mrs. A. Summersett as my attorney. When I went to arraignment on a felony charge, I was appointed Mrs. A. Summersett as my attorney. One of the bailiffs stated that, “I had a damn good attorney.” Within 24hrs I received a visit from Mrs. Summersett, which was surprising as well as reassuring. The most important thing that came from that initial visit was that I felt like I was listened too. I wasn’t rushed because we we’re sitting behind a glass partition. The visit ended with me feeling very optimistic about my case. Less than a week later, I was visited by a Private Investigator that Mrs. Summersett had requested to have in my case. A former Police Officer, he was attentive, asked questions, and took notes. I knew from then on that I would have a fair chance of being cleared of these charges. My bond was set at a ridiculous amount, there was no way I could afford it, nor was it fair. I voiced my concerns about the bond amount to Mrs. Summersett, who reassured me that we would ask for a bond reduction. In less days than was expected, I was brought forth to a bond hearing in which I was granted a bond reduction of more than $60,000. I was able to post the bond and fight my case while being free. I always felt pleased in the way Mrs. Summersett approached my case, that we would be Proactive rather than Reactive. I had giving my attorney the truth from the start, where as she could develope a sound defense. Presenting my case in front of the Grand Jury was always considered our first priority. I had a tough Prosecutor, who was not willing to bend despite the odds. I was shocked to know that they we’re seeking a double-digit sentence. In less than 5months my case went before the grand jury, I received a No-Bill on my charge!! Although the experience of going through a Felony charge was very frustrating, the reassurance I received from my legal team was comforting. I can only say Thank You so many times. Sincerely, Karleton

The BEST EVER
Counselor Summersett is the most generous attorney with her time I had ever experienced. She visited me countless times while I was in county jail to reassure everything would be done the way I wanted it. Anna got my 3rd dwi plead to a first offense and several c.s. cases dismissed. Ms. Summersett is the most skilled and valuable DWI attorney in Tarrant county by far. She kept me updated every week on what was going on and responded promptly to all my questions. I am so grateful to had hired her! THANK YOU ANNA!!!

Great Attorney!
Working with Anna was great. From the time, I called her reading allegations that resulted in felony charges, her feet hit the ground and she never dropped the ball. Anna was always available when I needed to speak with her, she was GREAT communication system in place. When you have a lawyer who is more concerned with your well being more than anything else it’s such a blessing. I can honestly say that Anna made my first experience in the system less stressful for me. She’s honest, dependable, caring and dedicated. I would recommend her to anyone! I am so thankful that I hired her as an attorney. I have my freedom because of her and I will be forever grateful. Thank you Varghese Summersett!!!

DEFENITLY HIRE YOU AGAIN
Dear Ms. ANNA SUMMERSETT When I even started to look for an Attorney, I was “lost “ I didn’t know what were the steps in looking for an Attorney. All the Attorney’s that we got in contact with before you, wasn’t giving us any clarity on what to do next and how to go about it. Soon as we reached you , we was given an address of where to locate you ,the price that you’ll take the case and all the information we needed to know to go about the case. I mean you was simple ,straight to the point giving me options on what to do … even set me down face to face. That really made me feel like I was safe in a sense by the way. But everything was easy access, easy to use. I would DEFENITLY HIRE YOU AGAIN if I needed too but “let’s not hope so “ but I would! THANK YOU! BRENDON

GREAT ATTORNEY GREAT FIRM!
As A client of this firm, my expectations have been more than exceeded. Not only as communication, but also by outstanding legal practices from Anna, and her legal team. I really like that I could keep up with my case all, online. It was great that her paralegal kept me up to date on all of the events of my case. Any questions I Had I could always call the firm and speak to someone which was very important. Reminders with detailed instructions from the paralegal and other representatives from the firm were very helpful. Anna being as busy as she is always picked up the phone to reply on my case. My invoice was online along with all of my documents. The amount of money paid was all worth it, the price was very exceptional for the trouble I was in., Very friendly staff, clean and professional office. The fact that you all have tried even after the case was disposed of to try and recover property, from the case is really awesome. A lot of firms out there may have said they wont even mess with trying to get it back.
