Best in Fort Bend, Top 5% in Texas!
Making life decisions that will impact you and your family are never easy and most likely will be one of the most difficuilt decisions you will ever make in your life. When it comes to making a decision for the overall best interest, especially for your children and yourself, it is critical to ensure your are represented by a professional, knowledgeable, well-versed, realistic, and most importantly caring attorney that truly has your best interest in mind. Even though the process can be long and hard on you individually, Attorney Dean Zand orchestrated the process and made it go as smooth as possible. Attorney Dean Zand was always professional, responded with a sense of urgency when I had questions about my case, was poise, and confident during the entire process. Unlike some family law attorneys, I can definitely express that Attorney Dean Zand actually cares about his clients and will do what it takes to make sure your case is successful through his knowledge and understanding of the law. The Zand Law Firm is warm, welcoming, and family oriented law firm. My case took almost a year and I can say that Attorney Zand and his team are like family to me. Keep in mind that support staff also plays a huge role in a successful law firm and the success of the Attorney. Assistant Michelle Kubosh was extremely professional, a great listener when I had concerns/questions, responded to calls/email urgently, and kept me well informed throughout the entire process. I would definetly recommend The Zand Law Firm to anyone that needed GREAT representation. Thank you so much Dean and Michelle! You all are truly like family and thank you for fighting for my family!

Great Attorney!!
Mr. Zand helped me get through my divorce process smoothly. When I first went to him, I was nervous and worried about filing my divorce. After talking to him more about my divorce situation, he made me realize this is the right decision for me. Mr. Zand guided me and made sure I was getting a good deal, especially when my ex-husband is a family attorney himself! If you want the job done and need a supportive attorney, I strongly recommend Mr. Dean Zand!!

Zand is the Man!
When I was presented with court papers, I started looking for a well respected lawyer. I found Dean Zand through an internet search and made the call. Within a week, we met, he listened, he was knowledgeable, and we came up with a plan to proceed. Dean made this process both efficient and painless. I am very pleased with the outcome and it is because of Dean why I was able to come away with all of my parental rights as a Dad. Thank you Dean!

Excellent Attorney
Dean represented me in a custody situation with my son. I worked with Dean from a distance, and he was always prompt with communication and answered any questions I had regarding the case. I do believe that he did everything he could to give me the best situation and was able to settle the case to my satisfaction. He was excellent in explaining legal terms and situations regarding the case, which helped me determine the best path moving forward at this time. If I need legal assistance in the future, I would not hesitate to reach out to Dean again and I would highly recommend him to anyone needing an attorney in the Richmond area.

Great counsel and even better results
I was referred to Dean by a friend who used him for his divorce. I contacted Dean immediately and hired him the same day I talked with him. From the beginning, Dean proved himself to be much different than the other experiences I have had with attorneys. He spoke plainly about the process, explained that he was there to protect my interests while listening to my concerns. Throughout the very short process (which he expedited due to his knowledge of the courts in Ft. Bend) he was prompt with answering my questions and was always very professional. I was very happy with the work Dean did and how he billed that work and have the highest respect for this man of integrity. I would highly recommend you hire him for all of your law needs.

Mr. Zand and his staff were phenomenal
Noone gets married thinking that they will get divorced. This was one of the most difficult times in my life and Mr. Zand was phenomenal. He was very responsive, diligent and his communication was wonderful. He kept me updated regularly so that I was never unsure as to where my case stood. I would highly recommend Mr. Zand!

The right choice!
I called around and spoke to several other firms before deciding to retain Mr. Zand. He represented me on a child support case as I am in another city. Mr. Zand and his staff were very professional yet easy to talk to. It was easy to get in touch with him when necessary. I was satisfied with the outcome of my case.

Excellent and Agrresive Attorney " In a Good way"
Dean is an excellent lawyer for family laws. He has been very courteous, professional and a good listener. He always took his time to understand me and help me find the best possible solution. He has always been top of everything ,not once I had to chase to get answers. He is very communicative when it comes to responses.Also, I would like to mention that his office staff is equally cordial and welcoming. I have worked with many different attorneys for different matters but attorney like Dean is very rare to come across. I proudly recommend Dean Zand and his firm for any legal matters. Thank you Dean!

Exceptional Family Law Attorney in Fort Bend County
Dean provided prompt, knowledgeable advice throughout my divorce process. In many cases he turned requests around within 24 hours. He demonstrates high ethical standards, extensive knowledge of Texas divorce law and it was obvious that he is well respected by peer attorneys and judges in the Fort Bend County court system. Dean's goal is to maximize his client's position while at the same time doing so as expeditiously as possible to minimize overall cost. I was very satisfied with the outcome of my case and was pleasantly surprised by the final cost. I would highly recommend Dean for your family law needs.

Placing Clients First
I hired Dean immediately after a Temporary Order Hearing and wished that I would have hired him from the very beginning. My case was pretty straight forward and the opposing side, to include the attorney, constantly found ways to delay and hampered progress. Dean squashed all attempts by the other party to continue with the delay tactics and quickly set the case for trial. Although hard to say about most attorney’s, Dean is honest and has integrity. Dean listened to me and kept me up to date on everything that was going on. Perhaps the best thing I can say about Dean is that he saw me as a person and not a paycheck (again something you cannot honestly say about other attorney’s). I highly recommend Dean and if needed, will hire him again.
