Words could never descride how great she is
I was referered to Ms.Rowland by a another attorney who felt that she was a better fit for my case. My case started out as a CPS case with a protection order later added. Ms.Rowland on our 1st court date won and my custody order remained unchanged. Then instead of having to attend court the next day over a protective order she was able to get that withdrew and held mediation instead which resulted only in minimal changes. Ms.Rowland was always very upfront with me and always gave me the choices of very best outcome or the worst outcome. She was always a phone call away no matter the day or time. As a mother also she would sit and let me cry and just listen she truly understands and is truly all in with her clients. Her fees are reasonable and she explains that fully in your consultation. If you are in need of a family attorney and someone who will listen and fully represent you in court then Ms. Rebecca Rowland is your attorney.

Excellent Attorney
I spent several weeks researching family law attorneys. I spoke with several of them by phone and even had a consultation with one. I was about to give up on my search and go it alone until I spoke with Rebecca Rowland. Our initial conversation by phone was very professional and she actually spent more time with me by phone then another attorney had done in a face to face consultation. She asked all the right questions and her compassion was genuine. When you discuss your case with her you know without a shadow of a doubt she knows family law! She was very honest about what I could and could not expect with my situation. She made sure we had both reviewed all aspects of the case and knew what outcome we wanted. Ms. Rowland kept my best interest at heart and she fought for what was fair. Her rates were reasonable and her hard work and compassion was outstanding!!

Family Law Attorney
I can’t express Enough how Rebecca helped me get more than I could ask for in a child custody case. She extremely amazed me of her knowledge and ethics and her willingness to fight for me . To my knowledge she is a attorney that cares and she’s not out to over charges her clients . A five star rating is underrated. I give her a 10 ⭐️

Rebecca deserves ten stars! She is patient, brilliant, down to earth, stays on top of things, and isn't intimidated by ANYONE! I absolutely LOVE her and will definitely recommend her to my friends and family. She will work with you and fights for what is right! She will respond at any time, day or night, and does things by the book. She is real quick to catch things or suggests things that may help your case. TEN STARS!

Exactly what I needes
I have been going through a lot trying to get visitation of my kids. I started with no possession and access and now thanks to her I am getting unsupervised visits. She kept me informed the whole way through and was easy to get in contact with. One suggestion, JUST DO WHAT SHE SAYS. She asked what I wanted to get out of this and it was hard but I just let her do her thing and I got what I wanted. I have already been telling people about her and would highly recommend her for you to.

5 STAR PERFORMANCE!
I cannot say enough good things about Rebecca Rowland. Usually dad's are at the disadvantage in Texas. There were substantial violations on my former spouse regarding visitation, alienation and medical reimbursement to me. We made it through post divorce, divorce 5 years ago, mediation. Rebecca smoked them out with the documentation I provided. My visitation was increased and Rebecca made sure I got my money back. This was a complicated mess as my former spouse is very difficult to deal with. God bless this woman for what she will do for dads!!!

Rebecca is amazing.
I found Rebecca on Avvo from a question I asked, her answer was exactly what I needed. I called her office and was able to talk to her and immediately I knew she was the one. My case is still active but she has been my attorney for 9 months and has worked very hard on my case. The other party and their attorney has done nothing but play games and have delayed my case month after month, and Rebecca is always there to effectively keep my case moving. I had met with a high profile family law firm that wanted to charge a fortune before finding Rebecca, but she has blown them out of the water with what she has done for me and her price is more than reasonable. She is very personable and takes time to explain everything in terms non attorneys can understand. If you want a good attorney that will fight for you every step of the way, Rebecca is the one.

Rebecca did an excellent job representing me!
When I called Rebecca I was in a difficult position in a divorce case due to my previous attorney's laziness. My ex wife's mom and dad have money and they paid for my ex-wife's very expensive attorney. Rebecca took my call on the weekend and represented me very well for much less than many attorney's would have have charged with her level of experience. She only had a couple of weeks to prepare for my final hearing before the judge. My ex-wife's lawyer had over 25 years of experience and Rebecca held her own against her. Rebecca also helped me to win in the finance part of the mediation by helping me reach a negotiation that did not require me to pay any spousal support. I would highly reccomend Rebecca as a divorce attorney. She has a better work ethic that any other attorney I have ever used and many times that is the difference between winning and losing. Rebecca did not nickel and dime me like some attorney's do. She provides quality work for people who cannot afford to pay $400+ an hour for an attorney.

What a blessing
Rebecca has handled our case with professionalism and integrity. She helped keep me grounded when I was stressed out and never went without answering every question and explaining everything in its entirety.

CHILD CUSTODY VICTORY
During the worst time in my life I was blessed to have been recommended to an angel of a lawyer. I had zero knowledge of the law until my ex stole my infant son and wouldn't return him. Not knowing the law, I quickly found out that without any court order there was nothing I could do. A friend of mine recommended Ms. Rebecca Rowland and after the first conversation with her I felt relief and hope. She sprung into action and represented me as if it was her baby and I will forever be grateful. She was at every court date, she kept me informed every step of the way, and stayed on top of my entire situation until she brought us to victory. I can honestly say Ms Rowland was more concerned about my case and wasn't in for the money like most lawyers. she supported me mentally and emotionally and I couldn't have prayed for better representation . If you need a lawyer that will fight your case with her all and bring you to victory, Ms Rowland is the women for you. I not only won my case but I was blessed with knowledge to past on to others. A child custody case could be a long stressful time but I can assure you, if you choose Ms Rowland as your lawyer, she will fight and do everything in her power to win your case. SHE DID IT FOR ME AND STOPPED THE HARRASSMENT OF MY EX> ( something I thought would never happen) Now my baby boy is back home and he's happy and healthy and no damage was done mentally in regards to the case. I am forever Grateful.

THANK YOU
I was referred to Ms Rowland through a friend. I don't know what I would have done without her. She took the time and seemed to care about me as an individual and I appreciate that. Divorce isn't fun, but I felt it went as best and could trust her judgment. she really looked out for me.

Don't waste your time looking for an ace attorney. She is right here!
We were extremely fortunate to find and hire Ms. Rowland. She is one of the rare attorneys that is not only knowledgeable in many different areas of law, but is sincerely driven to achieve the best outcome for her client. I have never had an attorney work so hard for me. I have had bad experiences with attorneys in the past and can assure you they are not all created equal. If you want fair rates, hard work, and the best possible chance at a positive outcome, Ms. Rowland is the attorney for you! Thank you Mrs. Rowland for restoring my faith in legal professionals!

Great Follow Up
Ms. Rowland recently representing me in a matter that I had to complete additional actions after the judge rendered his ruling. I left the courtroom and forgot to complete the actions. Ms. Rowland followed up with me to remind me of my obligations and protecting my interests. Other attorneys have not done this for me in the past and it made all the difference.
