Divorce inforcement and child support
After six years of legal battles, I hired TJ. My case was resolved in less than 3 months. He is extremely proactive and always overly prepared. I have dealt with several attorneys in the last few years and none came close to the service I received from T.J. I highly recommend him and his staff.

Divorce and Domestic Violence Case
I don't know where to start but to say Thank You! I was in the middle of a divorce and assault case when I came to TJ because the previous lawyer I had retained no longer practiced family law. I came to him with an extremely complicated and stressful case where my spouse of almost 20 years was trying to take everything I had worked all my life for including trying to put fake charges of abuse on me in which I was the Victim all along. I retained TJ for both cases and from start to finish he was very supportive, returned all my calls and emails in a timely manner and guaranteed me that he would do his best to help me. His staff keep me updated with my court dates and any updates from TJ. Although Family Law is where his specialty is I was confident in him to hire him to assist me with my other case. TJ spent a lot of time on my cases and was well prepared when the opposing counsel tried to challenge him on some issues. TJ fought for me and made sure I came out victorious. I would absolutely recommend him to all of my family and friends. Although I felt the total cost was high initially I know now every dollar I spent was well worth it because now I have peace of mind and can move on with my life again. I would hire him all over again if I had to. Thanks for working with me and Thanks Again for everything. TJ you are Awesome!

Outstanding Attorney!
After 3 years of a long and drawn out custody battle that was continually dragging on without any results, TJ Roberts came highly recommended. Within a matter of days, TJ had my case dismissed and worked out some major details to safeguard the best interests of my children and kept us from spending countless hours in court. His knowledge of the law, attention to detail and tenacity by which he conducts himself in the legal arena on his clients behalf is second to none. TJ and his staff provided outstanding customer service, remained accessible and had quick response times for all my questions along the way. I highly recommend TJ Roberts and the Terry and Roberts Law firm.

A Real Pitbull
I hired TJ to represent me in my divorce and child custody case after my husband took my children out of state and refused to return with them. Not only did TJ do a phenomenal job representing me at my court appearance in Texas, he also found, vetted, and consulted with a lawyer in the state my husband was located. He maintained constant communication with me throughout the entire process, answering endless questions, and providing thorough legal consultation that was honest and respectful. In the courtroom, TJ was a pitbull. The way he asked questions, presented information and evidence, and represented my best interests in the courtroom was amazing and highly effective. Not only did TJ work tirelessly to get me what I wanted, he made sure he fought for what was in the best interest of my children. I highly recommend TJ for a divorce and/or custody battle.

Nothing short of amazing!
TJ has to be the most amazing guy and lawyer I’ve ever met. Not only does he treat you like a human being but he treats you like family. I hired him less then a month ago and I feel like I’ve known him for years, this is how he makes you feel. I am absolutely amazed at his attention to detail and how upfront he is about everything! This man is a beast in the courtroom, the focus that he has is amazing and I can see why he made partner at the Scott Brown firm. If you want someone that will be in your corner and fight for you this is the man for the job! I am so thankful for TJ words cannot express, he was able to get my son back to me and that was everything to me. I would highly recommend him to anyone and everyone! He picked up some many details with my case and was laser focused on what he needed to do. If I could give him more than 5 stars I would do so!

Child Custody
T.J. is an outstanding Law Professional who is sharp as a razor blade. I came to T.J. with concerns for my daughter and from the beginning he was straight forward and never tried to deceive me or give me any false hope. The moment I hired T.J. to represent me in court, from the very first court hearing I was informed completely, either by him or his assistant Jennifer. T.J. met more than my expectation's and truly fought for my case. T.J. is down to earth, very intellectual and to see him perform in a court room was spectacular. T.J. from the beginning fought for my family and won my case and everything that I asked for. I would definitely recommend him!!!!!

Friendly, Committed and Straight-fwd Lawyer
We recently (Nov 2016) used Mr. Roberts for a criminal case in Brazoria Co. Our family was concerned with the timeline we had to get moving on the case (upcoming hearing near holidays). However, during our first meeting with Mr. Roberts we were extremely impressed with his his knowledge of the system, and his ability to commit the time immediately. He responded so quickly, that we had the case resolved before the holidays. It was amazing. We really appreciated his hard work, his open communication as well as his honesty. Having worked in the past with other lawyers for various issues, it was very refreshing to have a lawyer with these qualities. He also has an office in Clear Lake which was extremely convenient as well. Our family HIGHLY recommends Mr. Roberts.

I highly recommend, T.J. Roberts.
I highly recommend, Mr. T.J. Roberts, for anyone going through a divorce with a child. As, getting a divorce is stressful enough, having him represent my son and I was a huge relief. The entire staff is personable, trustworthy, and knowledgeable. There are not enough words to describe just how T.J. Roberts, had a way of simplifying a difficult situation and managed to keep me calm. I believe it's because he exudes confidence and genuinely cares about his clients. My son and I thank you!!

Due to a negative experience with a previous attorney, I was very nervous about hiring someone to represent me and fight on behalf of my children in regards to child support enforcement and and a visitation plan. I really wanted to find someone who I felt cared about my case as much as much as we did. After much research, I made the decision to hire TJ and honestly can say it was the best decision I ever made. TJ is knowledgeable, confident, realistic, no-nonsense, and really showed he cared about our case. This why I put all my trust and confidence in him when we chose to go to trial where his preparation, knowledge of the law, and desire to fight for us resulted in a ruling that exceeded our expectations. TJ and his staff are exceptional.

Case Dismissed!
TJ represented me during a rough period in my life when I was charged with Assault and Motion to Revoke Probation from a previous DWI. Just when I thought all was hopeless TJ came to the rescue and negotiated a complete Dismissal of all charges including a complete end to the remaining 1 year of probation from the previous DWI in exchange for 1 month of alcohol rehabilitation! TJ's expertise and skill in the court room not only resulted in the Complete dismissal of all charges but also led to the personal help that I needed during this period of my life and I am grateful for his services. I highly recommend TJ Roberts for for anyone facing similar life situations. I couldn't have asked for more!

best divorce attorney around
I hired Mr. Roberts to represent me for a divorce. I could not be happier with the services rendered by TJ and his staff. TJ is great at setting real expectations, doesn't sugar coat the truth, and will do his absolute best at getting you the results you are looking for. He treats all his clients as if he was representing his own family member. Talented in the courtroom. Extremely knowledgeable in the dirty tactics other divorce attorneys use, and cuts them off before they even take root. Exceeded my expectations!! Hopefully I will not have to get another divorce, but if I do, there is no one else I would rather have representing me!
