MATRIMONIAL & FAMILY LAW MATTERS. CALL TODAY

I work in the follwing areas: family law, divorce, uncontested divorce, contested divorce, suit affecting the parent child relationship, temporary restraining orders, protective orders, foreclosure defense, bankruptcy chapter 7, bankruptcy chapter 13, credit card judgment defense, lawsuit defense, writ of execution defense, abstracts of judgment, credit card lawsuits, lawsuits, debtor representation, repossession, credit repair, debt consolidation, discharge of debt, tax lawsuits. In law, more so than in any other field, the tenacity and perseverance of the lawyer are only two of the qualities which make a difference in the resolution of your case. Besides tenacity and perseverance, a lawyer should be ambitious and driven, book-smart and street-smart, quick on his feet but cautious with his words.
A lawyer should be ethical, courteous and considerate. He should be available, return your phone calls promptly or at least acknowledge your communication and inform you of the status of your case. A lawyer should be aggressive with the opposing party but effective enough in his tactics to resolve your case in the most efficient manner and with the least amount of litigation involved. Last but not least, your lawyer should be reasonable in his fees. I strive to be all the above and more. If your case involves family law matters, I want to help.

Best lawyer that I could have asked for
Mike was very understanding and helpful throughout the entire case, he helped me understand everything I signed and made things simple. If I ever need a lawyer again I will be calling Busby and Associates.

The Best
Hiring an experienced divorce attorney like Mr. Busby is the best way you can get peace of mind when dealing with child custody, alimony, and just the process of a divorce in itself. Having Mr. Busby as my divorce lawyer to advise me and ensure that nothing was left out of my divorce agreement, was very satisfying especially with Kim's help and guideance thru this process.. Kim is a very experienced and determined paralegal who kept me informed on how likely it was to get what I was seeking in the divorce. Kim can also help you devise a strategy for your case and give a rough timeline of how long it will take. Overall through the whole process of my divorce it was an easy and pain-free process and I am forever grateful for the help of Kim and Busby & Associates

Great Lawyer That have Great Heart and Really care about client!好律师!
我和前妻离婚十多年了,最近前妻为了争夺孩子抚养权不断请律师起诉我。我打了所有美南新闻上的中国律师事务所都不承接我的家庭诉讼案。在无奈之下我谷歌搜索family law第一条信息就是这位Busby大律师事务所。我冒着试试看的心情电话咨询,然后出乎我意料的事这家律师事务所提供一小时免费面对面咨询而且约在周六对我工作也不影响。大家都知道在美国没有一家律师事务所提供客户免费咨询的,很多律师事务所开价每小时收取300刀咨询费而且在疫情期间都是网上视频咨询解答。走进Busby律师事务所跟律师助理交流后让我茅塞顿开充满希望,律师助理仔细看了我的资料跟我耐心分析流程和步骤甚至跟我分享了她的遭遇然后在Busby律师帮助下圆满得到解决了。大家都知道我们亚裔律师都擅长办理移民所以当一对夫妻长期不合走到离婚这一步时通常都很纠结,特别是有好多个孩子更是不知道怎样合理的分配孩子的抚养权和孩子抚养费等等一系列问题。找到一位真心为你着想的律师非常重要,所以在这里我强烈建议大家不妨免费电话咨询下这位具有20多年经验的Busby巴斯比大律师,他们律师楼就位于中国城合作路上电话7139741151. 记住第一次咨询是完全免费的,一定不要放弃这个机会找这位出色的律师为你出谋划策让你事半功倍得到你想要的结果!

Child Support
Michael Busby and his team has helped my brother who recently has been having issues with children visitation and child support. Seeing my brother go through so many issues with his kids it was very hard. My family and I are very thankful for Mr.Busby’s work towards my brothers case. I highly recommend Mr.Busby and his associates to be your attorney.

Very Grateful
Positive: Responsiveness, Value I'm so glad I found Busby & Asscociates. They're not the regular Law Firms that open from 8-5pm. They open late on certain dates and Saturday mornings which make it very convenient with my work schedule. They are affordable and have payment plans. They go over all the paperwork if you ask them to. They answered all my questions and were very patient with me getting frustrated when things started running slow due to the pandemic and courts being closed. They did EVERYTHING I ASKED!! Very friendly Team. Thank you to all the staff. ❤

Life Savers...Just like the Candy
When I need Help, I know EXACTLY where to GO!! BUSBY & ASSOCIATES 2909 Hilcroft/Unity Ste. 350 Houston, Texas 77057 (Free Visitor Parking) This company of Lawyers stand by their word & they do exactly what they tell you they're gonna do. I like the fact that before I hired them, they gave me the pros and cons of my situation, instead of BLIND-SIDING me with it further down the road. I'll tell anyone if you feel like your SHALLOW waters are becoming DEEP, if you feel yourself SINKING, before you DROWN...PLEASE allow the Lawyers at the office of Busby & Associates, to Throw You A Life Saver.

Thank you!
"Just finished a three trial with Mr. Busby" It was up and down, very tense. He advised me to settle and work on my family. The judgment did not favor me but afterwards my wife called and wanted to reconcile. So we both agreed to dismiss the case as the judge had not signed anything. I cannot believe he saw my wife not want to divorce. Good guy, wants to help you and your family"

Child custody
I was looking at this site again to potentially hire an attorney in Michigan for another matter. I realized that I neglected to provide a review of Mr. Busby's services when he represented me three years ago. I was responding to a support issue turned into a custody battle from another state and needed representation. When my case finally went to trial nine months later, Mr. Busby did not disappoint. He was well prepared, on the ball, and did not forget a thing that we discussed in the previous months. (I wish I could say the same of my divorce attorney!) I am grateful for his excellent representation.
