Excellent Representation
If you are reading this you are likely searching for an attorney and you likely already know it’s hard to find one that will really work for you. Seth did an amazing job representing our son after his parole was revoked and was able to get him reinstated on a complicated case at the first hearing. Seth is extremely personable, communicates well, listens to his clients, genuinely cares about his clients, and is sincere, always explaining the process. Seth is very knowledgeable about the parole process and did an amazing job summarizing our son's case and representing, staying the course with a positive outcome. He will also actually return your phone calls and keep you updated. Seth went above and beyond what we might have expected from past experiences. Five stars for a job extremely well done! I will recommend Seth to anyone seeking a parole attorney!

Seth Topek is an absolutely incredible parole attorney! I hired Seth to represent a close friend of mine who was serving a 5+ year sentence for an aggravated offense that received significant negative media coverage and public scrutiny. Seth worked closely with me, my friend, and my friend’s family over the course of many months to compile and prepare a thorough and comprehensive parole packet. During the hearing itself, Seth gave a strong and compelling presentation that effectively humanized my friend before the Board, while also providing my friend’s family members the opportunity to voice their support. As a direct result of Seth’s efforts, my friend was approved for parole and will be coming home much sooner than expected! I would highly recommend Topek & Topek to anyone who might find themselves in a similar situation. We are so very grateful for your help!!

Best Lawyer for your Money
My husband was APPROVED on his 2nd time up, last time we didnt have a lawyer.Seth did an amazing job on my husband parole packet and did an outstanding job with our in person interview. I hired Seth for my Husband who was denied previously and still facing 6 years left on his sentence and we had a really tough case to beat, with prev charges stacked against us and possible protests not in our favor. I hired Seth back in June of this year and there was not one time i could not get ahold of him to ask him questions or to talk about our case, he even went 3 times to meet with my husband in person at his unit. Mr. Topek must have spent at LEAST 100 Hours on our case if not more, he is Definitely worth the price. The thing that stood out most to me was i felt Mr. Topek believed in me and believed in my husband who he was representing, that, he made my husband feel that he wasnt just another "Client". He made us feel that he truly was advocating for us because he believed in us and not just because he was paid to do so. If you want an attorney who works hard for your Loved one, and is always willing to go the extra mile then hire Mr. Topek, he is the best. Thank You Topek and Topek for my husbands 2nd chance! Some other lawyers i talked too wanted to charge the families by the minute to talk to the lawyer, other lawyers had an assistant do all the work for them, but Mr. Topek does all his clients paperwork and goes and visits the inmates himself, another reason to hire him!

Parole hearing
Hello My name is Fredtashia , My husband was sentence 4yrs TDC time March 2017 got arrest Dec 2016 . Our daughter had just turned 2yrs and our son was only 4mths old when he left. very tough for me with two small children , I had no idea where to start to look for a parole attorney . I called at least 6-10 until I got the right feeling . When I called Topek is was an instant connection they made me feel important as well as my husband . There was not one time I couldn't talk directly to him , didn't have to go through a paralegal. Was nervous because my husband had a AGG case that he had served 10years probation and was months away from completion . Seth Topek step in and did everything in his power , my husband came eligible for parole 10/18/2017. We meet with commissioner parole broad member 11/21/2017 . I checked the online at 4am 11/22/2017 and he was APPROVED (FI-1) to come straight home. THANKS SO MUCH TO TOPEK&TOPEK ATTORNEY OFFICE !!!!!!!!!!! :)

Parole hearing
I was looking for a parole attorney for my husband, I talked to a few different attorneys, but when I talked to seth topek I immediately set up a meeting with him and hired him on the spot. My husband made is first parole review. Seth topek kept us informed every step of the way, he helped us with our parole letters, and he is very easy to get in touch with! I would recommend him to anyone, and would definitely use him again. My husband had a very difficult case and seth worked very hard on his parole packet, and we were able to meet with the parole board in person, three days later he called to tell me my husband was approved.

Parole Hearing
I hired Stan for my fiance's parole hearing. I had contacted several other attorneys before Seth and after actually talking to Seth face to face with his father Stanley I was sure he was the one I felt really cared. It showed in his work. Seth and his father were always willing and available to speak to me or any of the family members. Always willing to help. My fiance has a 40 year sentence and Seth did a great job. My boyfriend will be home in less than 2 months. I definately will recommend Topek and Topek.

Best Criminal Defense Attorney
I found Seth Topek on the computer. My grandson was incarcerated at Woodville, TX. at the time. He was coming up for review so we needed a criminal defense lawyer. I tried searching in the area that I live in and no one would take him. Besides they charged a huge amount. When I found Mr. Topek I sent him an email. In just a short time he replied and said he would take my grandson as a client. His fee would be 3500.00 which was 3 times less than what the attorney's in my area was asking. I thought he was very reasonable. He represented my grandson when his hearing came up and we won on our first try. You couldn't ask for a nicer pair of Attorney's than Seth Topek and his dad, Stanley Topek. They both visited my grandson and helped us in every way possible. I would recommend them to anyone anytime. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again if needed.

Topeks successful at 1st Parole Hearing
I first contacted Seth and his father when my son was sentenced to 10 years in prison which he began to serve in San Antonio in the fall of 2014. I was impressed with this father and son law team due to their excellent reviews on the internet. Their fee was a flat $5000 which may be higher than the average, but I believe that one usually gets what one pays for. And this proved to be true from the very beginning. There were never any para-legals or junior clerical staff involved. There was never a boiler-plate form letter suggested or written. Every detail of the case was handled personally by the principals of the law office. At least twice, Seth made the journey to San Antonio (which must have been 10 hours each time) to visit my son in prison and give him guidance. His father traveled several counties away to obtain police reports. When it came time for the 1st parole hearing, Seth was well prepared, articulate, and convincing before the parole board. The parole board granted parole after my son had served 6 months of a 10 year sentence. I think that this law team probably spent more than 100 hours on the case. I would not hesitate to reccommend this legal team to anyone who wishes to find the best in legal representation. John in Virginia
