    So happy that I used Mark for my divorce. He was very good at explaining every detail to me which helped me feel less worried. It went according to plan and I was divorced in a short period of time. Can't say enough how happy I am that he made it so easy for me and my family to get through this tough time in a civilized manner. I would recommend him to anyone who needed a family law attorney!

    Hired him for a divorce, me and my spouse decided to work things out a month after I filled. Paid a $5,000 cash retainer that's non refundable that he failed to mention and just has you breeze thru paper work skipping over that part. Told me I could keep case open for a year. However now I owe a balance for this case. Never went to court! There were a few emails back in forth but when I reviewed my invoice I was charged a ridiculous amount of fees of him going back and forth with OC. And to review my case file. When basically there was nothing to review or to go back and forth with OC so much. I can't imagine how much the actual divorce would of cost if I followe thru with divorce.

    Mark Mcentire Childress’s response: “It should be known that this person offered me a positive online review if I would refund their retainer, and when I refused they posted this. I DO NOT buy online reviews, and that is what this person was trying to convince me to do. The balance owed that this person mentioned is $50.00, and I of course already agreed to waive it. I tell every client that divorce is a stressful and expensive process, and should be given careful consideration prior to beginning the process. Generally my initial retainers are nonrefundable, and based on the amount of work that will be required in each case. The terms of the retainer are explained to clients, and all clients sign a contract verifying the terms prior to any work being done in any case. In this particular instance the parties had the attorneys set and remove several hearings from the Court's docket, and even considered protective orders against one another. Needless to say, this case involved extensive communication, and litigants who would fight one day and make up the next. Now these two people who have accused one another of terrible things have decided to stay married and cancel the divorce. I do not make life decisions for clients. If clients request that I set, reset, or cancel hearings, I do so in order to give the client time to make decisions in their case, and that is exactly what happened in this instance. I have assisted hundreds of families through difficult times, and the overwhelming majority are pleased with the results that they receive, and the communication that I have with them. Unfortunately, some people blame others for the problems in their lives, and I cannot help that. I am sorry that this particular client is unhappy. I am candid in my communication with all clients, and I do not create the problems that my clients bring to me. I simply try to assist clients in making the best of difficult situations, and I hope that the reconciliation of this marriage lasts and that the parties some day think of this experience as one that brought them back together.”

    I would highly recommend Mark as your family law attorney. I hired him for my child custody case. He is very knowledgeable and very well liked in the courts. Marks demeanor, compassion and confidence as a lawyer eased my mind and anxiety about my case. I was stressed and worried about my court dates, but Mark took the time to explain in detail the process that would take place. Mark always responded back to my questions in a timely matter. He is an A+ in my book.

    I needed an attorney who would stand up for me and my child during a very hard time. Mark was there to answer every question, every phone call and did it in a way that I felt as if I were his only client. He was very knowledgeable not only about the law, but about the opposing attorney and the judge. He prepared me well and we won our case. I would recommend Mark Childress to anyone who is fighting for custody or in need of child support.

    I couldn't of asked for a better attorney Mark was to the point an upfront about everything from his opinions to cost an small details. He knows what he's doing and makes this stressful process roll a lot smoother by being upfront no sugar coating. I appreciate you an all you have done for my family an I hope I never have to go into court again but if I do I wouldn't hire anyone else.

    My husband and I hired Mark as our lawyer for my husband to adopt my son. I received a call from Mark within hours and he quickly moved forward with our case. I not only got updates from his office but Mark himself. Mark made sure every detail was met and completed by the book and we didn't miss any steps for the opposing party to come back in my son's life. It was long journey but our outcome was worth making sure every 'T' was crossed and every 'I' was dotted. We have a very happy boy and our family is now legally complete. Mark helped us with every question we had, we are pleased with him and his effort.

    Mark childress is currently my lawyer. My sister is sueing me for custady of my son christian. I battled with drugs for about a year and a half and my sister cared for my son during my battle of addiction. I am now 9 months clean. Almost a year clean and mark has been nothing but helpful through my battle. We just went to court and Mark got me over night stays every other weekend with my son. I have faith that mark will get my baby boy back into his mothers arms where he belongs. Mark is trust worthy, he is upfront with what money he needs to pursue your case and he doesn't mess around When it comes to my son, mark knows where my son needs to be and I believe he will do everything in his power and fight until my son is back with me. His mother.

    I was fortunate to find Mark at such a tough time in my life. It felt like my world was crumbling down and I was in desperate need of legal advice. He was very knowledgeable and gathered all of the facts before laying out the best options for me. In such a time of grief it is easy to get carried away with anger but he was very logical in his guidance which led me to making decisions that would best serve my long term interests. I am very pleased at how I came through my divorce and was able to move on with my life. I could not have done that without the legal help from Mark. I would highly recommend him if you are in need of a divorce lawyer. He genuinely cares about your needs and works hard to fight for them.

  • Wrongful termination

    Posted by a Child Custody client

    When my ex tried to terminate my rights to my only son in 2012, I was distraught. I am so thankful I found Mark at the time I did. He was so determined and NEVER gave up or settled for less than the best. Finally after all of the battles with my ex we won. I know he gave it his all and put in a lot of time and effort for me and because of that I'd say he's the best attorney in the Fort Worth. He is awesome in court and he knows his stuff. Which is very reassuring when it comes to losing your kid! I am so thankful for him and always will be. If I ever need another attorney he's my guy!
