Client for a Divorce case
I am surprised how real, honest and passionate Mr. Pierre is about his work. He keeps it right to the point. He did my Divorce about 4 years ago and it was hassle free. I will be recommending him to my friends and family.

Beyond Amazing!
I can't say enough great things about Max. He's simply has your best interest at heart. I appreciate his ability to explain both best-case and worst-case scenarios. He is knowledgeable about the system. I felt like he truly advocated for me and felt invested in what was in our best interest. He kept me updated and communicated promptly. My situation was unique, but he was determined to help me resolve it. I am truly grateful to have found him.

Child Support Case
Mac made winning my case very easy. He keep me updated in a timely manner when things happened in my case, and well as planned ahead for any obstacles that could be a problem in a future. He literally took care of everything that needed to be done, and I couldn’t thank him enough. I would recommend him to anyone!

Mac has your back!
Mac was very helpful and realistic in the way he counseled me. My situation was tough but, he worked hard on my case. Returned every call and email sent to him. He also did not expect anything extra monetary wise. His price was his price he understood the issues and allowed me to make the best decision for my child with his help I was able to and I will continue to use him as my lawyer. He is excellent. I recommend him if your looking for a lawyer he is real and will have your back but, he also allows you to remember the child is the most important part/person when it comes to family court. He will teach you a lot. Trust him.

Excellent Attorney who Cares
Words can not express my appreciation for the work you put in place during my husband's final Divorce. Thank you, Mac came in and took over the case from some bad lawyers that messed my husband up and he worked hard with passion and went beyond to bring us victory Mac took care of our child support payments which were very high and introduced an App of communication that my husband now uses to talk with the Ex-wife who was always uncivilized and talking trash to my husband. Once again Thank You for making this happen for the sake of our children. This is the only Attorney that I have ever come in contact with, within the two years of the divorce battle my husband went through that LISTEN for over an hour without charging for his time. Mac is compassionate, a very good listener, and an attorney that fights for you. Thank you and God will repay you kindly. I recommended him and his professional staff members. 100%

Excellent communicator and very efficient lawyer!
Mac is a very thoughtful, responsible, and empathetic lawyer. I hired and paid another lawyer who had yielded almost no results for me. This prompted me to contact Mac after watching a few of his educational videos on youtube. Mac listened intently to my case; he told me what he thought was possible, and we embarked on the journey together. He did everything correctly, and we were always prepared in court. Over the last two years, I have spent quality time with my daughter, and I am building a fantastic relationship with her.

Superb Attorney - HIRE HIM
I enlisted Mac to assist me with an interstate child support enforcement case. The NCP resides in Texas and I, in Florida. I'd had no luck whatsoever trying to get anything done via the AG's office in Texas and the arrears ballooned to just over 57K. The NCP would work here and there and subsequently quit his jobs bc he has VA compensation to fall back in his mind he really didn't need to work. Mac was thorough and relentless, even when all of a sudden I started to receive regular payments immediately after the NCP was served...Mac said nope...we move forward. Over the course of 4 months he's kept me abreast of every single action. Beyond his exceptional responsiveness ...his communication with me has always been clear and accurate. If I had questions he made sure to outline all the best and worst case scenarios, but more than anything I never felt rushed, limited, or lost. The satisfactory results of my case speak to his competence and professionalism. Hire won't regret it!

just now I hired Mr. Mac to handle my child support case. I was looking for attorney that was knowledgeable for what I was seeking concerning my daughter special needs and medical challenges. I had read the reviews forehand and I can say I'm very pleased with the outcome of my case. Mr. Mac explained my case to me in the positive and shared negative with me. I was okay with, at least he explained to me how the law works with my case. I would highly recommend Mr. Mac for Family Cases. Thank you, Mr. Mac!

Custody battle
I had a very difficult custody situation. I obtained a attorney here in Houston to represent me for a interstate custody battle. My prior attorney did not do his job correctly in this thing turned into a complete nightmare. I was referred to Mac and his team and explain the situation and the difficulties of this case. Mac and his team took on my case with no problem. He gave me great advice steered me in the correct direction and really bent backwards to help me with this case of me obtaining my child. This case was not a normal case I've been fighting this case for 4 years. He helped me find attorneys to represent me in the other state with also representing me here locally in Houston Texas. Long story short after many years Mac and his team got me custody of my son. I cannot speak highly enough of this man and his team of what they did for me and my family. I highly recommend him he is a very personable knowledgeable, professional, and caring attorney he did more for me then most lawyers will do to help you. I highly recommend this man.

Mac asked about the past and what I wanted to gain. When I went to him I was never for sure what all I could attempt to add for the order but he provided examples and answered my emails. He explained the process and the timeframes. When things were waiting with the OAG he explained why and worked to get it approved and sent.

Divorce Case
Mac was an excellent attorney who made sure I understood everything, he broke everything down to a T so I would know what was going on. Very patient and really good listener. He was really a stand up guy, did everything he said he would do and definitely came through . I recommend Mac for everyone.

Amazing Lawyer
After visiting with many lawyers in the Houston area, I finally came across Mac. Before then, I had never felt a lawyer take importance in my case the way Mac did. He was kind and patient and he knows the law extremely well. He was always honest and took the time to explain to me in detail any legal terms that I did not understand. He was always prepared and took time to meet with me before every mediation or court date. My case dealt with getting custody of my child and it dragged longer than it should have, over a year but Mac was always persistent and treated my case with priority. Apart from the legal stress that these cases bring, they are also emotional trials and Mac was very humane the days I would break down in his office, something that's not common with lawyers. In the end, thanks to Mac and his amazing team, I won my case. I am extremely grateful to Pierre-Louis & Associates and I highly recommend them.

A huge help
Mac did a marvelous job handling our very difficult probate issue. My deceased wife had a number of alias' that we had to identify and prove to the court to be accepted. He was very patient throughout this process. He also dealt with Chase bank in the matter of the distribution of funds. We were very fortunate to have him represent us.

Heaven sent
Obtaining a lawyer is never an easy or fun process but Mr. Mac-Arthur made my whole experience easy and smooth. He is truly someone who cares about what your going through and will do everything in his power to make sure you get the results your looking for. Of course every case is different but out of everyone in Houston I called his quotes on how much my case would be was like a breath of fresh air to me. Never once did I feel like I was being taken advantage of. He explained to me in detail and every step he was taking. I was always able to speak directly to him. Most lawyers you speak more to their receptionist verses the actual lawyer but not at his office. He makes sure to always email you or return your call. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for someone who really care about what your going through.

Mr Pierre-Louis stayed on top of my case at all time and made sure all of my concerns were addressed. He and his staff were very attentive and thorough throughout the handling of my case. They made sure to answer every question no matter how minor or complex. The frightening divorce process was made simpler by Mr Pierre-Louis and his staff. I would definitely recommend him to someone who needs legal help and would retain him again if I need further legal representation.

"Mac is an excellent attorney. He is not only honest and trustworthy, he approaches his clients in ethical and fair manner. As a former Assistant Attorney General, he brings with him an insider skill set and knowledge of how the child support process works. I have known him personally for 10 years now and can attest to his work ethic and professionalism. As a colleague he is great to work with. His background as a former educator easily comes out and he has been patient to questions that I have had. I highly recommend this attorney!"
