Best in Bell County
I am a local business owner, and I have used Mr. Pearson's services on many occasions. He has represented my family, business, and I, and in every case or dispute we have come out on top. I can not say enough great things about Josh, as a professional and as a community citizen. Do not hesitate to give him a call. You will feel confident and relaxed after your first conversation with him.

Thank you.
Josh and his staff were very knowledgeable in helping me deal with a theft from a dishonest employee. They made an uncomfortable situation less stressful knowing it was in the hands of professionals.

Trust worthy and Prompt!
Josh has handled multiple issues for me and my companies. He has always promptly returned calls and handled every situation quickly. I can not recommend anyone else in Bell County more highly then Josh.

You hope to never need an attorney, but circumstances may present themselves that require legal assistance. I requested Mr. Pearson's services a little over year ago concerning a termination of parental right and stepparent adoption. I had been to court twice prior and had spent over $7500. The first time I ran out of money without a resolution, the second I spent $2500 for one phone call and an attorney that did not come to court. I was very unsatisfied with my prior experiences and nervous about taking this on, but for the well being of my child, my husband and I did. From the moment I interacted with this firm I was amazed and it stayed that way. I requested and received an appointment within two days through this website. The office is easy to locate and very comfortable. Josh spent over an hour with my husband and I. He was an astute listener, we were not rushed, and afterwards I was calm. We left that day knowing that nothing was guaranteed, that the road was long, but that there was hope. We had not had that for a long time. If you sit down with Mr. Pearson you can be rest assured he will deliver an honest interpretation of the situation as you present it and that he will exceed your expectations. The termination took the longest and due to the increase in business over the year I was represented in court by Mr. Pearson, Mr. Miller, and Irena (a newly hired attorney). Everyone was well prepared and even though they were not all with us from the beginning, each attorney was knowledgeable about the case. I would recommend any of the three. I would also like to mention that most of my correspondence through email and even the phone was through a paralegal, Mandy, who was immediate in answering calls and email. She contacted me a number of times throughout the case to make sure I was getting what I needed. For instance, in the beginning we were asked whether we desired a name change. At the time my child did not want this. We were asked again when the termination was completed and again said no. The day the adoption files were to be submitted she asked again and again I said no. This time my child changed mind and I had to ask if she could change the forms that were already filled out. It was done without a problem even though we had been asked three times. This is the kind of personal attention the entire firm gives out. The retainer was reasonable, covered the entire year, and we received a substantial refund. Overall this firm goes above and beyond any expectation I could have.

Mr. Pearson is the man for the job
I've dealt with a few attorneys within Bell County over the past few years, and my experiences have not been the greatest. I learned the hard way that cheaper isn't always better (especially when you need a good attorney). I contacted Mr. Pearson about my child custody/visitation issue and he explained all of my options. He was also familiar with the judge, so he gave me his opinion on what his decision might be. He is very patient, knowledgeable, and pays attention to detail. The way he dissected the other party's false accusations at our hearing was a work of art. I thought things like that only occurred on TV :). I suggest anyone looking for an attorney in his area call his office before you retain another attorney.

Good lawyer
I was in such a dark and lonely time in my life. I spoke with many lawyers whose initial meeting were uncaring and cold. Mr Pearson was the only lawyer who actually just listened to me . He provided a dead on accurate advise from the start. Mr Pearson is smart!!!!! During this traumatic event in my life, mr Pearson handled every concern with patience and caring along with his wonderful staff. Mr Pearson advised , encouraged, and stood by me , when at times I felt like giving up. I would advise anyone looking for a good , caring ,smart lawyer to represent you look no further. I have already recommended several of my friends to him. Mr Pearson is a good guy! Thanks again!!!!!

A caring partner
Josh took on my case of a contested divorce and patiently helped me through 8 long and stressful months to its conclusion. From the start Josh was caring, professional, and truly concerned about my best interest. He was patient through months of changes and challenges but was always encouraging and confident. I plan on using Josh for any unforeseen legal issues that may arise and will certainly recommend him to family and close friends.

Military officer in transition
As a military officer soon to retire in the area, I needed someone I could trust to advise me on a land purchase contract. Our family currently lives in the Northeast, so having Josh advising us really helped to put our minds at ease. His input was critical to our decision to purchase and he and his staff provided excellent customer service start to finish.

It feels good to breath again ! ! ! !
There is so much I could say about Mr. Pearson and his staff but for me it was the personal interest they took in my case. I fought my Divorce from another state with the help of Mr. Pearson. There were times when I felt as if my life were falling apart, but Mr. Pearson always encouraged me to keep breathing and take one more step. I have actually only had one face to face with Mr. Pearson and that was actual court hearing, I must admit I was very nervous. But like a true professional with his client (me) he gave me the strength to make it through. I would recommend 100 times over to anyone who needed an Attorney, Friend or both to hire Mr. Pearson to represent you. Josh thanks to you my life is now moving forward and I feel like I'm breathing another level of oxygen. Thank you so very much for all you have done for me. God Bless!

Amazing law firm, amazing staff!
Mr Pearson and his staff were incredible. They did exactly what I needed them to do for a great price. I would use them 100 times over if I needed. My divorce/custody case was handled with the utmost professionalism, and was over with in such a timely manner, without me having to travel to court. ( I'm 1300 miles away). I trusted Mr Pearson 100% to represent me and I have not one regret! You will not be sorry hiring this law firm!

I was so worried about my divorce and I went to talk to him. He is awesome, he made me feel that everything will be alright! He was very true with me and said that I have to think about to hire a lawyer maybe is better don't do that and save the money for anything else. I felt very comfortable with him. I really recommend him if you are like me afraid, scared and everything. I loved him.

Top Notch Attorney!!!
I have been through several years of custody/divorce issues and have finally found relief to all of my legal issues with Mr. Josh Pearson as my representation and legal counsel. I spent thousands of dollars in and out of court and after hiring Josh, he not only took care of all of my issues in a expeditious manner but consistently kept me informed. He took action very swiftly but also refunded the remaining balance of my retainer immediately after all issues were settled. Josh and his staff always kept me up to date with the current status of my legal proceedings and responded immediately to all questions and concerns. My experience with Miller and Pearson was Top Notch and I couldn't have asked for more. I would highly recommend Josh and his firm to any and all looking to get relief from their legal matters swiftly and with confidence.

Review from Charles
I had the honor of being represented by Josh Pearson. I presented him with my case and he immediately jumped into action by calling, emailing and sending out letters on my behalf. Through this entire process Mr. Pearson was very professional and knowlegeable in addition to keeping me informed as to where he was in the process of the case. I highly recommend Mr. Pearson as a lawyer you can trust knowing that he has your best interest at heart.

Pleased with service provided
Very professional, reliable, and courteous. He always responded to my e-mails and calls within a reasonable timeframe and did a great job of getting my divorce finalized as soon as he was able to. Definitely recommend him for his services.

Dependable, Experienced and Hard Working
Joshua was instrumental in the recovery of my personal insurance claims after a head on collision with another motorist. After the other motorist's insurance company promised to re-imburse me for personal loss that occurred during the accident, the insurance company became non-responsive. Joshua persistently contacted the insurance company and was able to illicit a response that resulted in my recovery of personal loss. Joshua kept me informed along the way and advised me as to the best next steps to accomplish our goal. Joshua is a strong, Christian father who is passionate about helping others. I have known Joshua for over 20 years and highly recommend him as an attorney.

Professional, patient, & compassionate
Mr. Pearson is one of a kind. He diligently helped me through my divorce, always responding in an extremely timely manner to any question I asked. He remained calm and professional during the six month process of working with an incompetent attorney who was hired by my ex. I would not hestiate to recommend Josh and his firm to anybody, for anything. I plan on using him to sell my home to a friend, there isnt a case I wouldnt trust him with.

Honest, Hard Working Christian Lawyer.
Josh assisted with a custody amendment between myself and my ex wife that resulted in my children now residing with me primarily. We were able to achieve this with minimal court involvement and an exeptional level of integrity. I would recomend Josh for anyone seeking legal council.
Posted by Christelle | June 11, 2012
Professional, Courteous, and Ethical!
I would definitely recommend Joshua Pearson to anyone looking for someone who is professional, courteous, and ethical! He is the best lawyer I have ever worked with. He answered all of my questions in a very timely manner, handled my divorce and child custody case amazingly, and worked well with the opposing lawyer. I got everything I wanted out of my divorce and child custody case. The thing that I was most impressed by was his honesty and high level of ethical conduct, which is SO hard to find in a lawyer! I live in Killeen but it was worth the drive to have a lawyer I could trust!!!

Highly recommened
My husband and I had a wonderful experience working with Mr. Pearson on our adoption. This was a very exciting but sometimes scary process and he constantly helped calm my nerves. Mr. Pearson is very knowledgeable and was always prompt replying to my emails or returning a phone call. He never hesitated to go above and beyond for my family. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for professional, trustworthy lawyer.
