Frank J. Vendt, Jr., has been meaningfully involved with people that work all types of jobs, people that have various social statuses, and people that live with many different issues. This led him to practice family law. We have all heard that “nothing takes the place of experience.” Mr. Vendt has been through a divorce himself, and has shared custody of his child. He understands the battles one faces when it is time to end a marriage (money, children, reputation, failure, et cetera). Mr. Vendt is also Director-At-Large of the Fort Bend County Bar Association, and was elected by his peers to serve them in such capacity.

A great help
I hired Frank to process what I thought was a simple non-contested divorce which was forced upon me. It was and wasn't so simple as I slowly woke from a fog over several weeks and my perception changed. Frank was very patient, advising me and making changes along the way. Due to our changes it took a little longer then expected but I was confident I was being taken care of the entire time. This was my first serious need of a lawyer for other then a few simple documents through the years and he has put a very human face to it.

Excellent Divorce Lawyer
I desperately needed competent and experienced legal advice. My emotions were running wild and I needed a lawyer that understood my unique case and would be brutally honest. Frank provided excellent legal representation and solid wisdom that calmed my nerves and provided a sense of peace that everything would work out in my best interest, and it did! I cannot thank him enough for his professionalism, dedication, and honestly. I HIGHLY recommend his services.

Frank isn’t the man
Frank helped me with a custody issue with my ex-wife and one thing is for sure, he is an aggressive, take no mess type of attorney. If your case needs a little force, be sure and hire Frank.

Excellent Family Law Attorney
I hired Frank to represent me in a very contentious custody battle with my ex-husband. He was extremely professional, caring and responsive. He is excellent in strategy and is very detail oriented. He did not give up, he was able to negotiate a deal that I was very pleased with. God forbid I need services of a family law attorney I will not hesitate to hire Frank again.

Thought I was divorced, remarried, then found out I really wasn't divorced the first time!
I had a very unique situation for Frank Jeffery Vendt Jr. to take on and he handled it with ease! Long story short, I thought my divorce was final about 7 years ago and remarried in December. While going through the passport process for our honeymoon, I stumbled upon the fact that I wasn't really divorced the first time! I quickly researched what the problem was, then reached out to The Vendt Law firm. Right from the start Frank made me feel confident that he was the man for the job! I could tell that Frank knew how important rectifying the situation was for me and my new bride. Frank walked us through the process and answered all of our questions to put us at ease. The whole process went rather smoothly. Frank was very accessible and responded to everything very quickly, even on a holiday. He was detailed and concise in everything he did. I never had a problem throughout the whole process. Hopefully, I'll never need The Vendt Law Firms services again, but if I did, I'd have no problem calling Frank up to take care of it. I highly recommend The Vendt Law Firm!

Fantastic Lawyer to work with.
I've reached out to him for several different issues and by far he is the only attorney i would trust. He is the most knowledgeable and aggressive attorney I have ever met.

Definitely recommended!
Frank has been my counsel through a divorce from someone trying to screw me over at every turn. Frank is VERY knowledgeable and sharp, he doesn't miss anything! He always clearly explains anything and everything to you in a way that you can understand without clogging up a conversation with confusing legal jargon. I have always been able to contact frank at various times of the day with my questions and he always treats me with respect and priority. I have relied on Frank to lead me through one of the crappiest times of my life and he has done an impressive job taking care of everything that he can with my case. One of the things that really stood out about Frank is his speaking ability. He has an uncanny knack for explaining situations and topics concerning your specific case and he knows what he's talking about. When I first told him about my case I felt like I was rambling off a million details he would never remember, but he sat there and verbatim recited facts back to me weeks later that I hadn't needed to repeat. He is very smart and I would recommend him to anyone! If you are looking for a lawyer who will look out for your best interest and not his own pocket book, you can rest assure that Frank will come through. I am relieved that he has represented me and I feel that I couldn't have had a better outcome if it weren't for him!

The Best Lawyer You Can Hire
Having a divorce pending in court against me since 2011 and dealing with lawyers who just didn't do their job was extremely exhausting.Then i found Attorney Frank Vendt and hiring him was the best decision I have made in my current situation. Upon hiring him he immediately went to work reviewing all my files and saw a serious injustice had been done on my behalf with previous lawyers. Within a week of hiring him, he immediately filed all paperwork that had not been done on my behalf and requested all information I should have gotten in 2011. He is a lawyer with excellent principles, morals and integrity. His knowledge of the law is superb. My situation has changed for the better and I am extremely happy with his services. If your in need of an honest and hard working lawyer Attorney Frank Vendt is who you need. He is worth every dime I am spending.

Horrible Service
Lets start with him telling me the whole thing would only cost around $5000... before I gave him $25,000+ for nothing. He never successfully negotiated anything with my ex or her lawyers and when it was time to go to court he leaves me high and dry. Oh and google him, he was arrested for Murder.
Response from Frank Vendt December 27, 2023
It is difficult to respond to an anonymous post, but we will try. Our firm has five attorney members that assure all cases are handed ethically, honestly, and in accordance with law. Like an anonymous post, cases often have facts left out by a client that change the difficulty of the case and cause its cost to be much more than anticipated. This usually occurs with dishonest clients (similar to this review, much will be missing from the narrative they first present to our office all together). If this review is from a past client, working on telling the whole story would greatly help them going forward with new counsel. We suggest they do. Lastly, unfortunately the internet can be just as misleading as this review, so we are forced to address confusion; the State of Texas does not have an interest in licensing “murderers” to practice law. The State of Texas thoroughly examines its applicants prior to licensing an attorney. Frank Vendt and all attorneys of our firm are licensed by the State Bar of Texas. Search www.divorcelawyerintx.com for more information concerning each attorney.
