BATTLE PROVEN FAMILY AND CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY

Taly Thiessen is a battle-proven Houston family law and Houston criminal defense attorney at Thiessen Law Firm. In addition to being licensed in Texas, she is also licensed in Kansas and Colorado. She was born and raised on a ranch in Plains, Kansas. She attended West Texas A&M University, where she played basketball and soccer and graduated cum laude in 2007 with a B.S. in Mass Communications/Broadcasting. Next, she attended law school at Texas Tech University School of Law.

During law school, Taly clerked for the Law Office of Mark Snodgrass, helping with criminal defense, family law, and litigation. She also had an internship with the Innocence Project of Texas, supporting their initiative in overturning wrongful convictions and securing freedom for men and women wrongfully imprisoned for crimes they did not commit.

After graduating from law school, Taly continued her employment with Mark Snodgrass, as an associate in his firm, for the next 5 years. Since that time, she has expanded her practice to include juvenile law and family law cases such as divorce, child custody cases, and child support issues.

While in Lubbock, Taly was the President of the Lubbock Criminal Defense Lawyer’s Association and served on the board of the Lubbock Bar Association. Taly is regularly and actively involved in several civic and charitable organizations, including The Junior League of Lubbock, Paul’s Project, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, and Food2Kids.

In late 2016, Taly made the move to Houston, Texas, to begin work with the Thiessen Law Firm. She is excited to bring her criminal knowledge to the firm as well as expand their family law client base. She understands that in Houston child custody and divorce cases, every family is unique. Whether you need an aggressive advocate or compassionate attorney, she will take the time to listen and understand your specific needs. Her goal is to give each client an honest appraisal of their situation so they can make informed decisions.

Taly is licensed by the Supreme Court of Texas.

Forever Grateful!!!
If I could recommend any lawyer, it would be Taly. I deeply appreciated her dedication to my case and how she carefully explained every step I needed to take. She never made me feel uncomfortable to ask questions and she ALWAYS was available to me. I remember there were 2 times when she was on vacation but she still found a way to answer my questions. I am forever grateful to have had her represent me. My case is dismissed and we are in the process right now of expungement!

She can be trusted to fight for you!
Mrs. Thiessen is an exceptional lawyer. She is smart, driven and committed to your success. Her commitment to fight on your behalf is a force you can sense. She brings her knowledge to the courtroom and her name is well respected. You are going to win with this woman! She is a winner - Point blank. My case is dismissed and I have my life back.

Excellent Legal Assistance
Ms. Thiessen and her legal assistant were always pleasant and expeditiously processed documents related to my divorce case. They always communicated the status of my case and kindly responded to all questions. I was made aware of each step in the divorce process and the divorce was finalized as stated. I highly recommend Ms. Thiessen in all legal matters.

Just great
I highly recommend this law firm for your family matters. Miss Taly and Miss Crystal were very nice, communicative and handled my case strongly. Kept me updated Thru every step. Consulted with me first before taking any step further. Cost to hire this law firm might be out of budget for some people but it is worth every penny, in the end its better to hire a reliable lawyer Werther is pricy or not instead of finding a cheap one that won’t represent you the right way. At Taly Thiessen law firm you will find comfort they are pretty flexiable working with you. Keep this in mind as any other lawyers they charge you for every in/out calls or email so don’t be bugging with nonsense questions, let them do their job and they will definitely reach out to you when it’s necessary. Prolly the best Lawfirm around in the houston area. Thanks Taly and Crystal.

Divorce case
Taly was absolutely phenomenal in representing me in my divorce case. Watching her wipe the floor with the opposing counsel during my mediation, was absolutely amazing. Great team, fantastic representation.

Highly recommend!
I was very happy with the process and quick results I received once hiring Taly Thiessen to help me through my divorce. I had previously tried to go through it by myself, and then with a non-profit firm, but because of covid no one would answer phones and the courts were extremely slow. I had no information before, but Taly made it super easy for me. I never even had to step foot in a court. I am so relieved and can move on with my life! My daughter is safe with me and I am thankful for that.

She did what other lawyers wouldn't even attempt
I am so greatful I found Mrs. Thiessen. She was able to get me sole custody of my two kids and their last names changed to mine. All the other lawyers I had consulted with in the past said that a judge most likely wouldn't grant a name change and didn't want to even try. Mrs. Thiessen had her doubts but she was not scared to try. She actually listens to what you want and goes after it! Also, Cindy at the front desk is so nice and accommodating. She always made my visits so pleasant.

VERY HAPPY
I hired Taly Thiessen for a DWI case and she has been amazing! The office is very responsive, very professional and clear on all things required of you and themselves. They are always willing to answer my questions and let me voice my concerns. I was recommended to this office and would recommend any one in need of their services. Mrs. Thiessen was able to get my ALR case with the DPS office dismissed and I couldn’t be happier! I am really appreciative.

Family Suit
I appreciate Attorney Taly and Crystal her Paralegal, they where and Awesome Duo. I had and difficult case in regards to my toddler in pursuit of child support. I felt my child was really advocated for in pursuit of child support. My case was very unusual with very little to work with in my case. However, she didn't throw in the towel and gave me the facts but I liked that she gave it her all in the end everything worked out.

Happy would be an understatement.
Mrs. Thiessen was amazing. She and her team handled everything perfect. I feel so lucky that I had such great representation. She was clear, straightforward, honest, and scary smart. You definitely know she is on your side. If you follow her instructions things will work out in your favor. I would only recommend Mrs. Thiessen and The Thiessen Law firm. A huge thanks from me to them.

On point lawyer
Taly was on top of every thing 100 percent of the time. If you sent her an email with a question, she always return with an answer. She always was direct with you and told you the truth. Never sugar coated anything. She fought hard for me and made sure I had the best options available for me.

Quick to help and very professional.
Mrs. Thiessen was very fast to help in a dire matter concerning child support. I contacted several attorneys, and they never returned my calls and the few that did wanted to book me for a consult a week later. Mrs. Thiessen's office was quick to get my problem solved in less than 24 hours. Client service is something you just can't appreciate enough. I highly recommend her team as they are the most responsive I have met. I would gladly recommend her office to any of my family and friends.

DWI Lawyer
I hired Mrs. Thiessen back in May to represent me in my DWI case. Things weren’t looking to great in the beginning but she was able to win my ALR hearing and also got me accepted into the PTI program, this program allows you to get the charge dismissed!! I am forever grateful for all the help Mrs. Thiessen has provided and would strongly recommend her to represent anybody that gets a DWI charge.

She is tough, expects results and nothing less. You definitely want Taly on your side, no question about it.

Family Attorney | Aug 22
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Professionalism recognizes professionalism. We are both qualified attorneys in Family Law arena; but where certain aspects of a case that raises unfamiliar fact scenarios the other attorney experiences on a frequent basis; neither one of us is shy about tapping in the legal wisdom and helpful tips from the other. We happily help each other out. I endorse this attorney."
Family Attorney | Dec 10
Relationship: Co-worker
"Just to be upfront, I work with Taly in the Thiessen Law Firm. However, over my almost two decades of practicing law, I have never seen a more aggressive and take no bs lawyer. She goes to the mat and does not back down from anyone when it comes to getting what is absolutely best for her clients."
Family Attorney | May 21
Relationship: Co-worker
"Taly is my go-to lawyer for family law cases. She is one of the hardest-working attorneys I know. Her dedication to her clients is undeniable, and her devotion to getting what her clients need is relentless. Whenever I have a question about family law she's the first person I contact."
Family Attorney | May 07
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Yes, she is my wife. But we also try a lot of high profile cases together. And I get to see behind the curtain at her work. She is ALWAYS over prepared. She works so hard for her clients and is constantly on the phone helping them. She is way more patient than me. I also think that the DAs office and other lawyers like her alot more than me because she is calmer and more rational than I. we are a great team together, but secretly: she is the boss. I listen to and respect her analysis. So should yall. Any client would be lucky to have Taly fighting for her. I lose almost every argument against her."
Family Attorney | Sep 26
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Stays informed and on top of her game. Taly doesn’t flinch in the midst of controversy, rather she thrives in it. If you seek a fighter, you found one in her. I endorse this lawyer."
Family Attorney | Jan 11
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Talk Jacobs is a very professional and intelligent attorney. We have worked together on cases, as well as against each other on cases. She is a very aggressive advocate for her clients in family law and criminal defense."
