Great Lawyer
Chris helped me through my divorce. He was honest and worked to get paperwork done in a timely manner. He did a great job!

Outstanding Family Law Attorney
Upon the first consultation, Chris was very informative and detailed when he presented different avenues on how to achieve what I was asking for. He informed me that he may not always be available for correspondence but to trust that he was working hard on my case. His paralegal, Sonya, is in a league of her own when it comes to knowledge, returning phone calls, and emails as fast as an hour or the same day. She was truly phenomenal! I couldn’t be more happier about the outcome of my case, many thanks to everyone at Robert D. Clements Jr. Law Firm. Just give Chris room to work, believe me he absolutely delivers!

Outstanding Lawyer!
Very supportive throughout the case, gave great advice, kept in touch every day, and got our case dismissed. Didn't even have to go to court. Amazing job! Would definitely recommend him.

Great Lawyer
I contacted Mr. Lay through for some assistance in how to answer a debt collection lawsuit. He assisted me on what the next steps I would have to take and also assured me of what protections I had under Texas law. His help was greatly appreciated.

I Highly Recommend Chris Lay for Family Law Issues!
I contacted Chris Lay about a very personal family issue. Mr. Lay was very responsive and extremely knowledgeable. He was easy to talk to and understood the situation. Through his experience and expertise, he quickly resolved the matter. I will definitely contact Mr. Lay in the future for all my legal needs.

His 25% practice in 6 different areas of law speak to his 100% lack of knowledge
This man has nothing of any knowledge of family law, going as far as to call himself an Amicus with a personal money interest, in which he claims he can be paid to without any required findings to speak for or against you, kind of like bribery, thank goodness he has never been able to make for recommendations any that any judge has taken into consideration, but the exploiting people’s children is very concerning.
