Client 2019
Mr. Ducote jumped to my divorce case quickly. He is very professional and confident. Ready to fight for you. His team is very supportive as well. They helped me with little pain as possible to divorce successfully. The divorce decree and all legal paperwork were very official and legally strong. Mr. Ducote and his team have a lot of knowledge in legal field. You definitely can rely on this lawyer and his team. They will do their best for you. At the same time, expect that good legal support will cost appropriately. There is a required time to go through your case, so it won't be done as fast as you want. Recommend this lawyer for all family law issues.

Great defense to be on your side.
I contacted and retained Jeremy with The Love DuCote law firm as my attorney. I was going through a divorce and facing a Protective Order against me , yet myself having been the one that was assaulted by my wife at the time. She was actually arrested and charged with Family Violence with Bodily injury Misdemeanor. When I explain my situation, he knew right away how we were going to fight this. He was able to get the protective order against me denied and granted divorce-disposed. I was being falsely accused and the protective order could have jeopardized many things for me, yet he helped my fight back resulting in a great outcome. I couldn’t have done it without the help of Jeremy and his staff, they updated me promptly with any information I needed and were with me every step of the way. Friendly, experienced and very knowledgeable firm. I definitely would recommend Jeremy DuCote to family and friends.

A professional blessing
Mr. Ducote was my court appointed attorney. I went into his office very emotional because I was being sued by my ex-husband. I knew that I couldn’t afford a lawyer of his caliber but Mr. Ducote took the time to listen to my ramblings and reassured me that I would be ok. In the end, I didn’t go to court because Mr. Ducote convinced my ex to drop the case. He and everyone in his office were very professional and always treated me with respect. He was a blessing.

Great job, very compassionate
I had hired mr ducote a few years prior for a different case and later we was given to me as a court appointed attorney. He treated both cases with equal effort and I've had excellent results.

Representation on criminal charges
My son was arrested for charges at a tender age of 17. As a mother the horror I felt of what will happen to my son's future kept me up night after night. The police scared myy son and made him nervous into confessing for something that was clearly someone else to blame. The other person in the car was let free eventhough everything pointed at them. As parents we ran back & forth to bail him out. The next day I started to search for attorney and one review captured my eye. Review of similar situation and representation by non other than Mr.Jermey. I interviewed and he won my trust at first visit. Throughout the case he went above and beyond to help our son. He calmed me when anxiety kicked in at every reschedule date. Jermey and his wife both were truley blessing on our family. I have never had to deal with attorney prior to this but the horrfic experiences of others had me doubt every day until Mr.Jermey had my son's charges dropped to a class C ticket. Beyond this he guides my son to see tge best in life. I would recommend Jermey DeCoute with my eyes closed. If you want a fair chance at your case without a doubt he is your guy. Thank you so much.

Jeremy Ducote
Thirteen months ago my son was arrested on a serious felony charge. Unfortunately for him, he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. He was innocent of the charges, but now we had to prove it. We were at the mercy of the court to assign his attorney, who turned out to be Jeremy Ducote. After researching to learn what I could about this defense attorney I felt we'd been blessed and fortunate to be assigned Jeremy. My son asked him if it made a differnce in how he would represent him, being court appointed rather than a 'paying client'. Jeremy assured him he would fight just as hard for him court appointed or not. He proved that to be true over and over thoughout the 13 months. As a mother, I worried and fretted over my sons future and what was to come. I phoned, text, and emailed him frequently and he always responded with compassion and understanding and always went above and beyond. The first time I saw him in the courtroom, interacting with the prosecutor and her team, I was impressed. He was confident, tough, and ready to fight to the bitter end. It was obvious he was well respected by his peers and I knew then my son was in good hands. It was a long year and I was right.......my son was in good hands.....his charges were dismissed. I will always be grateful and will never forget Jeremy for all that he did. Words can never express the admiration and respect felt by myself and my family. I would recommend Jeremy to anyone who may find themselves in a position to need a defense attorney. In my opinion and my families opinion, he is the best there is. Thank you Jeremy, I will be forever thankful.

Representation on Criminal Charges
I have worked for attorneys for several years, and while I do not need an attorney, my sister, unfortunately has. However, I, nor my family, could be any happier than what he has done thus far. He truly knows what he is doing and will not just throw an offer out there to "close the case". He takes the time to review discovery and and the law pertaining to it. He doesn't make you feel like a horrible person and truly does his best to help the situation. Would I recommend him? Absolutely. Attorney's are always busy and people need to realize that they cannot stop and just talk to or email on every question. I personally am ok with that; however, when it comes to the big issues, he has your back and will work through them with you, so that you understand what is going on with your case and explain it so you feel confident with the hard decisions that must be made. I highly, highly recommend him should you or a family member ever need help in such a matter.

Outstanding Lawyer
Jeremy has handled several cases for both myself and my son. In ever instance he has exceeded my expectation and delivery results above and beyond my expectations. In the most recent cases. a DWI was reduced to reckless driving, and multiple possessions charges dropped to a single possession charge with credit for time served. Amazing results. He explains things well and goes over his game plan. I highly recommend him, and will always go to LoveDucote law firm for all legal matters even if its just a referral for something out of their scope.

Thank You, Jeremy.
I was picked up in Nassau Bay, Texas a few weeks ago after leaving a party where I'm certain I was drugged. I did not try to drive, but made my way towards the nearby CVS store to call someone to pick me up. I collapsed before I made it to the store and had a concussion. Next, I was thrown in jail. After being treated the next day in the Clear Lake E.R., I was on a walker for a few days until I fully recovered. I called Jeremy to get advice on how to plead in court and what to expect. He put me at ease by helping me know what details to share with the judge and which would be irrelevant. I was able to attend my hearing with confidence after speaking with him just a few times. My sentence was deferred adjudication with 6 months probation, a true relief. I will recommend Jeremy's expertise to anyone in need of good advice.

Great Attorney!! Thanks Jeremy!!
Jeremy handled my case with professionalism from day 1. He was always on time with my case even though he was very busy bouncing from courtroom to courtroom. The worst thing any attorney can do is not show up and leave an already nervous client to the wolves. He shows a degree of confidence that helps his clients in unspoken ways. I highly recommend Jeremy to represent you and give you the best advice for your particular case. He will stand by you and fight for your case.

Thank you, Mr. Ducote
Mr. Ducote helped me through a very difficult matter regarding my son. I had no idea how scary and intimidating the court system could be, and especially when it involves your 17 year old child that is technically considered an adult in the eyes of Texas. Thank you again, Mr. Ducote for getting the charges dropped against my son and for dealing with a very scared and very worried mother. I can breathe again.

Amazing legal representation
Mr. Ducote represented me better than I could have ever anticipated. He was able to work around my personal family schedule and professional needs. My case was DISMISSED! He knows the law and works hard for you even when you think he might be busy on other cases. His services are worth it and he fights hard for who and what you are. Down to earth and tells you honest answers.
