The Woodlands/Houston Area Finest!
David Borger is a fantastic lawyer, and I highly recommend him and his firm. I hired The Borger Law Firm PLLC to help me with my WILL and Trust, and it was an extremely smooth process. David’s remarkable personality, professional ethics, and drive to ensure convenience for his clients made him incredibly great to work with. David explained everything in detail, making the process a better learning experience. I feel like he was looking out for my best interest and earned my respect and trust. I have already recommended friends and colleagues to The Borger Law Firm and will continue to use his services for anything I need going forward. Top-Notch!

Compassionate and patient
We have used Atty. Borger to assist us with our estate planning, and we couldn't be more pleased with the experience. From the initial consultation to the finalization of our documents, Atty. Borger displayed an unparalleled depth of knowledge and a genuine care for our family's needs. His patience in answering our questions, attention to detail, and ability to simplify complex legal jargon made the entire process smooth and comprehensible. It's rare to find someone who not only excels in their profession but also brings a personal touch to their work. We now have peace of mind knowing our estate is in order, and it's all thanks to Atty. Borger. We highly recommend his services to anyone in need of comprehensive and compassionate legal assistance.

I was referred to Mr. Borger upon my retirement by my company. I worked for a major international integrated oil company (IOC) in Houston. Firstly, my employer (IOC) typically selects the best service providers. However, this was my first experience w/ a lawyer developing my (and my wife's) Will and did not know how it would transpire. My experience w/ David was a 5-Star experience. Below are some of the key reasons for this rating. 1. David seemed to be on top of his legal knowledge in this area. This gave me confidence that I was doing the right thing 2. He was v. patient and answered all our 'novice' questions in a understandable (non legalese) fashion 3. He went beyond the initial scope and developed several other estate planning docs. 4. He was prompt in scheduling the Zoom calls and sending the draft docs 5. Finally, he recommended a professional Notary who helped us w/ the stamping, notarizing and filing of the relevant docs. The entire experience was hassle free and a 'complete job' from start to finish.

I'm SOLD OUT! My business was and IS superbly SECURED with Mr. Borger. He handle creating my Estate documents in such a timely and RESPECTFUL manner! Folks, this review is "no" lie.... Mr. Borger level of communication and turnaround time in getting back to you is impressive! He provides valuable insight about the laws and does NOT give you misleading information just to secure your business.... He is the TRUTH! He maximizes the usage of all levels of communication to respond to you. He even responded to me while his kids were on spring break! Lol And I respectful waited for him to finish family time to get back to me. Without a DOUBT I boldly recommend Mr. Borger and I thank God that there is STILL a good Attorney/individual that stands behind providing EXCELLENT level of business to his clients. Mr Borger blessings to you ALWAYS!

Child Custody
Mr. Borger listened to our issues and explained the process to us very clearly. We went in with our eyes open. He was courteous, considerate and respectful of our situation. He treated us like family and fought for our case with passion. If you need counsel, David Borger is your man. I would not hesitate to hire him again or recommend him to my family or closest friends.

Consulted David regarding a guardianship for my elderly, mentally ill sister. He was very responsive and quick to get back with me outlining the requirements necessary to get the guardianship and clearly explaining the limitations of one. Would definitely recommend him.
