Exceptional Divorce Lawyer
I retained Andrew to assist me with an extremely difficult, highly contested divorce after my first lawyer struggled with my case for seven months. Andrew came strongly recommended by trusted friends. His legal knowledge, passion for the law, experience with the Denton Court system, and professionalism were exceptional. He carefully assessed my case, presented my options in terms I could understand, and took control of the proceedings in a way that greatly impressed me and gained the attention and respect of the opposing council. I was very pleased with the outcome of my divorce and highly recommend Andrew Passons.

Valuable Family Law Attorney
Andrew Passons dealt with my child custody/divorce case. He kept matters strategically honorable, amicable, and, cost effective at all times. He provided me with long term solutions, sound legal advice, and, realistic assessments. It was pleasant interacting with him and I wish him well for the future.

Highly recommend Andrew Passons for Family Law!!
Andrew is very straight forward and lets you know up front what you can expect. He got the results we were looking for without us even going before the judge! We would highly recommend him to anyone needing assistance in a child custody/child support chase! Very effective with Father's Rights!!

Great attorney for family matters
Andrew has been our attorney for several years now and he's very knowledgeable about Texas law and the seated judges. He's very responsive and timely. He'll provide the truth and explain your options (even if it's not something you really want to hear). He seems to love his job and wants to help people. He's not going to overbill you or nickel and dime you.

The smart, motivated, principled lawyer
Andrew did an excellent job while working on my case. I always felt like he was working hard to keep my daughter safe no matter what needed to be done. Whenever we came to a roadblock, he did not give up but researched and sought advice until we had a sound revised plan of action. It seemed that his motivation was to do the right thing instead of just spend time generating paperwork and fees. If you are in the right, he is a great attorney to have as your advocate.

Andrew Passons
I felt very comfortable and well taken care of with this lawyer. He was very knowledgeable but did not hesitate to bring someone else in when I needed something that he was not versed in. I trust him to take care of my legal needs no matter what they are.

Very frustrating experience
Andrew took over my contensted divorce case from a previous lawyer that also failed to meet deadlines and be responsive and proactive. During our consultation he provided clear timelines and actionable next steps and 3 months later and thousands of dollars he failed to act. He even requested an extension on discovery without informing me, when I had provided all the paperwork weeks in advance but he had not reviewed what I sent him. He never acted on the outstanding discovery due in the case after my repeated request. He fell flat every time, so frustrating. He is busy and clearly over committed. He never bothered to understand the details of my case or take the actions I requested. In writing he told me he had dozens of clients and my case was not a priority and I required patience to sit back several more months and wait. My case was a very long 7 month ordeal and I finally just requested a non favorable settlement agreement to get out of the countless useless dollars being spent on nothing. What a waste. In my opinion he knows the laws and has good contacts in the system but it was pointless to me as he never had time to work my case.
