Tony went above and beyond to get me my divorce, my now Ex Husband did everything to avoid getting served and the Judge was (let's just say) difficult. Tony worked hard, made sure I was informed, explained things to me, answered all my questions and was kind. (A few other lawers I interviewed were rude.) I highly recommend Tony Duckett.

"Extraordinaire Blessing"
So often I hear that you have to have a test before a testimony. Well,for the last few months I have been in a tail wind of a storm,and didn't know if I would ever see the light at the end of the tunnel. Prayers are the most powerful tool any Christian will ever need. Communicating with God,trusting Him to connect you with someone that have the mindset of Christ, a lot of patience,understanding and the love to help others. Attorney Tony K. Duckett shared these qualities and more. He was truthful in every respect,kept me informed step by step,was never too busy to talk with me,a godsent man,more than qualified to handle my situation,and proved beyond a shadow of doubt that he would bring closure to the matter @ hand. I was speechless when everything was over so very fast. God had answered my prayers by connecting me with someone that held much respect,and passion for the Lord,and this is the kind of Attorney I want to represent me in the future. I will definitely recommend (my) attorney to my family,friends,church family,and anyone I may come in contact with that's in need of legal advice."Good attorneys are hard to find,so why not hire the best".(I did :) ) Ms.C.F. Bucks

A Super Lawyer
When I think of professionalism, I believe the person should be well rounded! Not just knowledgeable but into the emotional needs of their client. Well, Tony Duckett is the epitome of well rounded professionalism. He assisted me with a criminal case(revoke of prob.) that I was in jeopardy of going to prison. But he worked with the D.A. & P.O. to get my probation reinstated & I've completed everything & he handled my termination of probation! So if you're looking for a well rounded atty. who's doesn't cost an arm & leg, he's the attorney to get!! He's worth every penny & more!!!

Good Lawyer
Tony is an amazing attorney, he helped me with my child custody case. He even allowed me to make payments with him; which was a big help for me. Before talking to Mr. Tony I spoke with three other lawyer, which wanted some outrageous prices. They wanted me to pay 80% of my bill, before they even began to work on my case. Thanks to Tony I now have my daughter in my life, and enjoy every moment of it. I will difinitely use Mr. Tony again, and will recommend him to others.

Mr. Tony K. Kuckett
I found Mr. Duckett to be extremely knowledgeable and understanding of my needs through the process of my divorce. He provided advice and clear direction as it related to my case and was a comfort to me though out this very difficult ordeal. I would certainly turn to him in the future should I need any legal advice or direction. I found his legal expertise and knowledge of the law to be nothing less than outstanding. I have and will continue to share my experience with others who are seeking legal advice and/or council. I highly recommend Mr. Duckett as an overall EXCELLENT Attorney.

Excellent Attorney!
I retained Mr. Duckett from a reference and I was very pleased with his professionalism, his knowledge and most of all his integrity. He assisted me with a child custody out of state case and worked really hard and diligent to represent me. I would highly recommend Tony Duckett as an attorney. He really does care about his clients.

An attorney with good moral character
Mr. Duckett is a man of excellence. I appreciate his professionalism, his knowledge, his understanding and good counsel. Mr. Duckett took the time to listen to my desires and he helped to guide me into making the right decisions for my family.

Tony helped me through a difficult mess that I had been avoiding for years.
I was living separated from my spouse for many years, avoiding the headache of finding another attorney since the first attorney I hired took my money and never finalized the divorce. Tony helped to decipher the mess that the first attorney made and finalized everything. He also did it for less money then the first attorney charged.

The Greatest Attorney on Yor Side
I knew Tony Duckett after bad experience with several lawyers before. Previous layers wasted my time and unjustifiable expenses for absolutely doing nothing! I nearly gave up on helping my grandchild until my lucky day when I called Tony. I found a man not only I could trust but also I could have as a good friend. He was very professional, capable lawyer, and very knowledgeable of his work. Tony was very patient with all parties and has the respect of all including the court. The honorable judge told me that you have a good lawyer and he knows what needs to be done. After a few short months, he brought the case to a very happy conclusion, and we left the court with our grandson and a truly good friend Tony Duckett. Attorney will give the right advice based on facts and will not go after every penny you have. He is absolutely most reasonable person when it comes to charges and costs. I would not have any other lawyer if I ever need one and I do strongly recommend him for all your legal needs.

Pleased with results
Attorney Duckett is extremely professional. He was always willing to answer my questions professionally and without delay. I tried for over a year to collect delinquent child support payments in the amount of $22,000, and used two different lawyers. Attorney Duckett was the only one that seemed not only interested in helping me, but was also successful in obtaining the payments for me. He kept me informed of my case at every turn. I would highly recommend him. I have no doubt as to his expertise and would use him again if the need ever arose.

Tony Duckett A Trustyworthy Lawyer
I was in need of a lawyer in a common law case, I had called lawyer after lawyer, Honesty, Knowledgable, kept me inform, Mr. Duckett is one of a kind, you just don't find lawyers like him anymore.

Great Attorney; Will help you
Tony is great. I had a criminal case, he helped me from the beginning to the end. The one thing I liked was the payment plan option and his price is reasonable. I was actually referred to him by someone and I would definately recommend him to anyone who needs help. If you want an affordable lawyer, who will actually answer when you call, will be in court when you need, won't give you "fluff" and who knows what he's talking about, you'll call Tony. Enough said.

Contact Attorney Tony K. Duckett For Unanswered Legal Questions
For legal advise you want a person with experience 10yrs or more. Mr. Duckett name had surface twice, he was truly a God Sent.. He gave me more advise in 1day than I recieved in 6months from my original attorney. Attorney Duckett has compassion for the type of work he does. He is Extremely Professional and easy to communicate with. I knew from day 1 over the telephone, I wanted him to represent me. I could have kicked myself. Six months later, I found myself calling him again, with my same old problems. I like him because he cuts through the chase. He is honest, direct, is very patient, outstanding listener. He is very knowledgeable in various areas of the law. He is willing to answer questions, even if you have asked him that question before. He has no problem asking you to update him on the last conversation. Often times when your going through a divorce your vulnerable. People make you feel embarrassed and uneasy. He was really put things into prospective. Their is life after divorce. Attorney Duckett is a person that will give you the facts and the true. REAL TALK. I will recommend him for legal advise with no hesitation. Thank you so much.

No Power in Court! Does not know how to speak up on your behalf! AVOID!
Only good with filing paperwork...He has not litigation skills at all and very scared or nervous to speak up in court. Poor listening and retaining skills.. He will just sit back and watch your case go down hill and do nothing to help you. He will not speak up when he should and when he does, he reads from a script of questions. Very slow to respond and will never take the lead and will avoid conflict at all cost. Out of his league as a attorney and has the nerve to be high priced . SMDH! Very dissatisfied client..

Response from Tony Duckett July 12, 2017
As I recall, this client actually won the case and won custody of the teenage child. As an attorney, we are required to follow the Texas Rules of Professional Responsibility. These rules govern how we conduct ourselves with the Court, opposing counsel and opposing parties. Clients caught up in tumultuous custody cases don't really care about these rules, but attorneys and judges do. In the end, the facts, the relevant evidence, and the law prevailed in favor of this client. Despite the poor rating, I would represent this client in the future.

tony ducket is always late unprepared and apparently has no strength in a court room, He botch my divorce terribly. He does'nt even recall details from court date to court date, he simply gave in to everything my bitter x wife wanted, i even have to go to jail for failure to pay child support from 05 and 06 even though were together and did'nt seperated until 08.

I have no idea who this person is; however, child support related issues are typically enforced by the Texas Attorney General-Child Support Division.
