Honest
I hired Mr. Kersh to represent me in a custody case. He was upfront and honest with me. No BS and didn't promise anything more than he thought possible, given my financial situation. Shane and his staff worked efficiently and didn't waste any of my precious time or money. Jillian was great and answered my calls and messages immediately. The whole staff was patient and kind during this extremely stressful year I've had. Thanks

Amazing attorney, amazing firm!
We have gone through hell and back in our custody case and I couldn’t imagine having anyone else by our side! Shane and Christian are both fantastic and better yet, the entire team, paralegals, business manager, EVERYONE at this firm operates at a rockstar level and I wouldn’t trust anyone else with something as precious as my child. They have become like family and without their unwavering support I would’ve lost my faith in our legal system long ago.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND
The Kersh Law Firm represented me through a child custody case. They exceeded my expectations and have been so wonderful!!! Shane, Brenda and the rest of the team always went above and beyond for my family and kept me updated every step along the way. Unfortunately, I went through two other lawyers over a year long period and didn't get very far before I found the Kersh Law Firm. Where my other 2 lawyers made me feel like I needed to "settle" in my case, Shane relentlessly went for exactly what I was asking and made it happen! Brenda is a doll who was always so patient with answering all of my questions and always made time to stop and update me whenever I called. I never felt like I was being pushed to the side or "just another case". I can't say enough good things about Shane Kersh. He is an absolute POWERHOUSE in the courtroom. He was always aggressive and confident in the courtroom and it paid off every time! I always felt so confident with him representing me. He is knowledgeable, thorough and handled everything with perfect professionalism. I had the best representation possible with Mr. Kersh. I highly recommend this amazing team!!!!

Fantastic Attorney!
We had a very difficult case-Great Aunt/Uncle custody case. He is extremely knowledgeable of Texas Custody laws. Anytime I had questions, major concerns or issues that came up, he and his staff quickly responded. Very thankful to have Shane Kersh on our side. Highly recommend.

Great family attorney
Shane Kersh and his staff represented us over the past two years with family matters, and they were there to guide and support us every step of the way. We could not have been more pleased with their dedication and professionalism throughout the process. If you find yourself in need of an attorney in Brazoria or Harris County, I strongly recommend you give Shane a call.

The most amazing, aggressive lawyer out there;
Mr. Kersh is an absolute shark in the court room, to say the least! He is aggressive and will make sure you get the outcome that you have so badly wanted since your first office visit. He is extremely attentive to EVERY detail withhin the case and wont miss a beat. You will learn that he genuily cares about his clients and their case. He will work day and night to make sure that everything is prepared and ready for you. He is always there to speak to when you have a question, or worry. He can turn a bad situation into a fair one and definitely has his clients backs. He made me feel nothing but safe withhin the court room and with my case. He knows exactly what he is doing and he won't stop until justice is served. He doesn't back down and he doesn't settle. He takes care of his clients better than any other lawyer that I have had. I will never hire another. I know I'm in the absolute best of hands with Mr. Kersh representing me.

Amazing advocate and attentive ally
Mr. Kersh has served us on a couple of family related matters. He was attentive to our needs and clearly focused on our process. Our son, who was the predominant member of all of our needs, was his primary concern and could not have prayed for a better voice. He is well-versed in law and is very aware of the make-up of the Harris County court system and its players. I cannot recommend him more strongly.

This lawyer makes a lot of false promises and tells a bunch of lies!
These people are the devil . I hired Shane Kresh and his law firm to represent me in a Child support reduction and visitation case, and these people literally did nothing for me. Shane made me a lot of false promises and lies to get me to pay him 5000 dollars up front and once he had my money, he literally would not return any of my phone calls text messages or emails. I paid this man 5000 dollars of money that i didn't have, and i had to borrow from my 401K, and he literally robbed me and didn't do anything for my case. I hired him to represent me and he assigned his assistant to work on my case and this is when the disaster began. This lady is very unprofessional and she doesn't have the slightest clue on how to represent a father when it comes to child custody and family law issues. Please do not use this law firm, you will regret it and be very disappointed.
