Made me feel at ease
Mrs Travers took the time to listen to my queries and gave me honest and sincere advice. She made me feel at ease right away. I left feeling more confident about what needed to be done and that I had gone to the right firm.

Travers and Travers literally brought our family together!!
Travers and Travers literally brought our family together. We had a rather unique experience, but Travers & Travers helped us through it every step of the way. We live in South Dakota and needed a referral for a lawyer in Texas. My sister is an attorney and asked around and everyone we talked to suggested Travers and Travers. So we took a leap of faith and it paid off for us big time. My initial phone call was with Sherrie and she immediately made me feel at ease. Travers & Travers took our case head on and did not stop until we brought our daughter home. They were very professional, but were also very human and friendly- that was very important to me. Mack went with us to court and mediation and he was able to keep us calm while waiting in between everything. He was very well spoken and had good charisma in the court room. Allison and Annilee worked on the background information, researching and helping us gather the information we needed to win our case. Travers & Travers explained things to us in terms we could understand, they were willing and able to answer any questions we had and never made us feel like we were bothering them. They were also very willing to work with us on our ability to pay for their services. Travers and Travers worked on our case as a family so anytime we needed anything; someone was there to help out. When our case was finished, Travers & Travers were more than just our lawyers, they were friends. They all had our best interests at heart the entire time. I know most people’s situations will be different than ours, but if you want a lawyer that is truly looking out for you, I would highly recommend Travers & Travers. Their kindness and willing to work hard for us, brought our daughter home and we will forever be grateful for them.
