Best Divorce Attorney in Ft. Bend County
Mr. Franks and his Paralegal, Toni, were extremely professional, paid close attention to detail, and went above and beyond to learn every aspect of the case to ensure a successful outcome. I highly recommend Mr. Franks, and look forward to working with him again using his Contingency Planning services.

Gets it done..... 5-0
I have hired Robert multiple times over the last 10 years. Each time he has handled my situation with the upmost care. I've even witnessed him finding maneuvers to reduce my bill instead of running it up. Another key feature is he IS available and does return calls normally very timely. This is the first time I have experienced such availability when getting ahold of my lawyer. When push comes to shove I find he is aggressive and get things done. Not once have I felt like I wasn't being protected. Finally, I can tell he genuinely cares. Divorces can be such a drain emotional, mine was certain trying at times. Yet he would take a moment to reach out just to check up on me, making sure I was ok. Reassuring me everything would be ok. This made a huge impact on my overall experience. He is my guy for sure

Most people can't call their divorce a great experience, but with Franks you will.
Robert got me through my divorce quickly and painlessly. As someone who has a hard time trusting things to be done behind the scenes, there was never a moment where I felt forgotten or not taken care of. Every tiny detail was handled professionally and in a timely manner. I felt like there were always reasonable expectations being set, and then exceeded. Truly a hands-off experience for me, which is EXTREMELY helpful when trying to get your life put back together during a divorce. Franks has a dream team. His paralegals, Justine and Toni, will always pick up and email you back quickly, and are very educated and helpful. Highly recommend.

Suit affecting Parent-Child relationship w/ Custody Dispute
Hiring Mr. Franks and his team for the most important fight of my life was hands down the best decision I have ever made. I was in a situation no parent wants to be in and he fought for me every single day. He was honest and upfront about the process and stayed in touch with me every single day, from the first sit down meeting to the day we closed the case. Each time a new issue was raised by the other parent, he immediately went to work and quickly had a solution. Law is scary, especially when you don't understand it. He was patient with me and explained it to me in a way I was able to comprehend. He listened to my goals and remained committed to achieving them all while keeping sons best interest in focus. On days where my emotions got the best of me, he kept me grounded and focused. He not only fought for me, but my son too. He communicated to the courts and the court appointed amicus keeping everything running smooth. His team deserves a lot of praise as well. The customer service was top notch. They were extremely prompt in answering calls and emails, very respectful and overall were wonderful to have on my side. I hope I never have to go through a situation like this again but I know if I ever need to hire an attorney who will fight for me, I will hire Mr. Franks every time. Hire him. Trust him. Let him fight for you!

Probate a Will
I was referred to Mr. Frank, in order to help get my father's will probated. We retained his services, and my mother and I were so grateful for Mr. Frank and his staff. They were so personable, kindness and empathetic to the situation. They did an excellent job of keeping us informed of our case. They were very patient and took the time to explain things to us. Moving forward, I plan to use Mr. Franks for any legal matters we may have.

Very pleased
Mr. Franks has helped us on several matters i including family members. Most recently was a mediation and was not only very pleased with the outcome but his professionalism. He is easy to talk to in terms i could understand and very communicative through the process. It is nice to have such understanding during stressful matters. I would highly recommend Mr. Franks and his staff

Child Support Chnage
My oldest turned 18 and I needed to have my child support modified and after looking at the requirements I realized it was well beyond my legal skills. Robert and his team got everything done quickly and properly with some good advice along the way. Thanks again Robert!

Look no further
Unfortunately I had no choice but to enlist the help of a lawyer for a divorce that came unexpectedly. I am a father of two great kiddos and am more than grateful to have had Robert by my side to navigate the unknown waters. In my experience (both professional and personal), one would find it hard to find a lawyer that is truly invested in an individual's personal matters. From point A to point B, Robert guided me efficiently and competently with my family's best interest in mind. He is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to Texas law and makes the most of his (and your) time. Any question I had was answered clearly and thoroughly time after time. Every now and again he may be hard to get a hold of (usually tied up in court, mediation, etc), but don't worry, he always return calls in a timely matter. Thanks to him, I have my children half of the time, and for that, can't thank him enough. My kids are a huge part of my life, and the thought of seeing them every once in a while broke my heart. Money spent with Robert will yield a return that cannot be bought. Thanks again Robert, you have a client for life!

Divorce went seemless
I was recommended to Robert from a trusted friend and was very impressed and pleased with his service. He walked me through all the steps and made sure I was covered from start to finish. He and his staff was in constant communication with me during the whole process. I would highly recommend him to anyone who has to go through a divorce. Divorce is hard enough, it's good to have him on your side to take care of the legal part.

Divorce and Last Will and Testament
Robert did a fantastic job representing me during my divorce. He has a calming demeanor, that helped during this emotional event. He is detailed oriented and I felt going into my mediation that we were the best prepared and it showed during the negotiation. I also asked Robert to prepare a will for me after my divorce was complete and final. He and his team prepared the will and walked me through the process needed. I would fully recommend Robert for your family, probate and or real estate needs.

Awesome - To the Point - Great Attorney
I highly recommend Mr. Franks for any divorce and child custody cases. We hired him for a divorce and for a child support revision. He handled the situations with the upmost respect and concern. He treated you like you were the only client he had at the time. I felt confident of him handling our case and we would get what was best for both parties. He is a trustworthy attorney. I would definitely hire him again if any case should arise in my family.

Greatly recommended lawyer
After searching and initially speaking with different lawyers who did not give me hopes that my case would be easy to beat, I was recommended Mr. Franks through a good friend of mine. She also had a difficult case that was won by Mr. Franks so I made the decision to contact his office after almost giving up. From the beginning i was treated with nothing but respect and honesty. He told me what things would be difficult in my case and what we could do to help the situation. Not only did Mr. Franks help make me feel at ease but he explained just how the process would take place and how long it would take to beat. He even gave me tips on what to do and not to do while the case was open, which no other lawyer that I had seen before him had done. He and his staff were all very professional and kept me updated on everything that took place. He made sure the process was up to speed and by the time i knew it, my case was over. I was very pleased with how things were handled. Other friends who started their cases with other lawyers before me were very surprised that my case was finalized before theirs! My case went extremely well even though the other "party" was not being very cooperative. I thank both Mr. Franks and his staff for all the help and for always being so caring about my children and I. I definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for a family lawyer. He really did do what was best for my children and I. From the bottom of my heart, Thank you!
