CHARGED WITH DWI/ RESULT JILL LUSCHEI LANSDEN
hello my name is Liliana in August 2014 I was pulled over for DWI. my life was about to change for the worst, I was arrested for DWI in Montgomery County which is not an easy situation. I was driving a friend home for being too drunk and had another friend in the passenger seat after dropping the other one off. I've never been to jail in my life that was the first time ever facing so many charges in so many fines not mentioning probation. with me being in the innocent . and never been accused of anything I didn't even know what to do. I decided to fight the case. that's when I meant Jill Lansden. she was very understanding she explained everything to me I feel so much better , she believed in me, and was very caring about my situation. she faught for me tooth and nail like if I was her own child. and she won the case. JILL LANSDEN in behalf of me and my family I want to thank you for your dedication and hard work. I will highly recommend her thank you so much and God bless you, you will always be in my prayers for the rest of my life.

Did a great job
The reason I am writing this review is because Jill Lansden did a great job representing me in Harris County. I was on probation for a possession with the intent to deliver case. I had completed the majority of the probationary period when I was then charged with a Felony Possession of Marijuana 4 oz- 5 lbs. Jill Lansden got me reinstated on my probation. I then took an evaluation that determined the amended conditions of my probation. The report recommended that I be incarcerated and go through a TDC program and then come out in out patient rehab. When she was done none of that took place and all they had me do were weekly drug tests and 3 AA meetings a week. I am very grateful for the work that she has done. She also gave me a more than fair price for the work that she did. I really owe her one.

Great resource
Attorney Lansden is that rare nexus of honesty, empathy and transparency for her clients and "pitbull tenacity" on their behalf. I have worked with other legal representatives and been disappointed by their lack of motivation and aggression so I had lowered my expectations. Attorney Lansden has restored my faith in the adversarial legal system and the concept of a legal champion on behalf of the wronged.

Excellent Handling of Assault Family Member Case
I cannot thank Ms. Lansden enough for her impeccable handling and diligent work throughout my very lengthy case. She was passionate, prepared, and fully informed about my case. Her experience and hard work are evident and I cannot thank her enough not only for her time, but ensuring my case was rock solid to achieve a verdict of not guity.

Top notch PRO
Assault Family Member Jury Trial Won!! I was falsely charged with Assault on my ex-wife. Ms. Lansden tried my case to a jury and gave me my life back! I cannot explain what it feels like to be accused of something you didn’t do. Ms. Jill was able to cross examine the state’s witnesses and point out all the lies. If not for her, I could have been labeled with a conviction forever, but now I am exonerated and it feels amazing. Jill you are the best. THANK YOU!!

Melvin Emmons case dismissal
Ms. Jill took pride in my case after dealing with about 3 prosecutors and a hard nose DA's office, she refused to take anything but a dismissal in my case. She called their bluff when needed and kept me informed on every situation. She's very professional and understanding as not only a lawyer, but as a friend and human citizen. If you want to be free from legal stress, trust Jill L. Lansden.

My life
This is hands down the best Lawyer. She really listened to my side of everything when she could have easily did what everyone else did, and not believe me. She fought perfectly for me. I wouldn’t want any one else. She was amazing. Thank you so much for saving my innocent life Ms.Lansden.

Great representation!
Mrs Lansden represented me in a case. After going to court and being reset a few times she had the case resolved and I was given time served. I would recommend her and would hire her again for legal representation!!

Excellent attorney
I have so many good things to say about Jill I’m not sure where to start. She was appointed to me by the court I had a aggravated assault case. She was extremely professional, and caring. She went above and beyond for me and assured me that I was in good hands. Not once did I doubt her and even though I was scared of what might happen to me, she made me feel comfortable. She got my case dropped down from a felony to a misdemeanor which was a relief. After I signed for probation she promised me she would file a motion for early termination after one year . She did just that. I am very grateful for Jill and I would recommend anyone to hire her. Best wishes her Jill

Shane Hawthorne PTSD Foundation of America/ Program Manager
There was a moment in my life where I was a lost Combat Veteran suffering from PTSD and ended up in the Harris County Judicial System and met my court appointed lawyer named Jill Lansden. Mrs. Lansden showed me that lawyers aren't just people trying to make a dollar off of people in distress. She showed me that there are still people who cared and walked me through the process of gaining self again and helped me with an early termination of a 4 year felony offense, not to mention the other offenses that she lead the way on for me in misdemeanor court. Mrs. Lansden will always be a slice to my heaven when I was in a darkness that could have never been brought to light without her guiding hand. Thank you Jill, You'll never know how much I really appreciate your services. *****P.S. - Mrs. Lansden is currently working with other Combat Veterans who struggling with the unseen wounds of war at the PTSD Foundation of America-Camp Hope

Felony assault case
Was court appointed to Jill lansden out of Montgomery county for a aggravated assault case I did not commit . I was very satisfied with her knowledge in criminal law and her compassion for treating her court appointed clients with the same devotion as a paid attorney . We were able to come to satisfying plea that I believe was a victory in my case knowing I had prior convictions that made me look guilty . I highly recommend her services and will use her in the future incase I'm ever in a situation That I'm utterly hopeless in .

Extremely Professional and Involved Attorney
My husband and I were looking for a defense attorney and had spoken to several of them that were in the courthouse. Not one of them seemed to really care or give us any direction on what might happen for my case. My husband happened to notice Jill Landsden in the courtroom talking with the DA and other prosecutors. She seemed to be very respected with the judge and prosecution team. We approached her and she immediately gave us her full attention and was extremely open and honest of what my outcome might be. We hired her immediately due to her knowledge and how much at ease she made us feel. During the process of my several court dates, Jill constantly stayed in contact with me and was extremely thorough in her research for my case. I received a pre trial diversion which didn't seem like an option for me. I hope I don't need an attorney again, but if I do, she will be the only one I trust with my case.

An qualified and excellent Attorney
Recently, my wife and I found ourselves in the midst of a lawsuit regarding a real estate sale and leaseback transaction. While we were comfortable with our actions throughout that process, but had a need for legal representation. After consulting with many professionals, we definitely found the best qualified and excellent attorney in Jill Lansden. She took interest to discuss the case with us in great detail and stood confident throughout our hearing. Today, we were vindicated. We are elated and proud to have had such great representation. We thank her and all those individuals that shared the same confidence we now share with you. Above all, she is also a great person that understands. She "gets it" and gets it done. Thank you Jill Lansden.

Criminal defense Attorney | Sep 27
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Jill and I were Assistant District Attorneys together at the Harris County DA's office back in the early 2000's. She was a great prosecutor and is an even better defense attorney. She is extremely dedicated to her clients, resulting in many dismissals for her clients. Jill's extensive knowledge of the law and legal system makes her invaluable as an attorney. She is someone you want on your team, for sure!"
