I was a father seeking custody of my young son. I came to find out that Stacey Valdez is the pistol you want on your side. She is the most fearless and fierce woman I have ever met. Stacey’s knowledge of the law is extraordinary. She took my case and brought calm to a chaotic situation, handling every matter effectively and efficiently. Her staff was always available, professional, helpful and friendly. Stacey’s associate attorney Michaela Balderas brought even more to the table, making this team unbeatable. In the courtroom Stacey was confident and on her toes at all times. Out of the courtroom, her sense of humor and unfiltered observations brought a sense of lightheartedness to a gloomy situation, which calmed my nerves and raised my spirits. In the end, I was appointed Sole Managing Conservator of my son. She was a hero for my little man and no doubt helped save his life. I am forever appreciative to Stacey, Michaela and her staff for coming to battle for me and my son. I would never consider anyone but Stacey Valdez & Associates should I need any sort of legal assistance in the future.

If you are reading these reviews then you are in need of a good lawyer and you've landed on a great one. I've used Stacey Valdez on a number of matters over the last 4 years related to my divorce. I only wish I had used her for the original divorce, she is a fantastic lawyer! Stacey has represented me through several suits including more than a dozen hearings, several mediations, depositions and a jury trial. She was always there for me, fighting hard for me and ultimately securing primary custody of my children.
As a Father, challenging my ex-wife for custody of our children was not easy. Stacey understood my position and took the time to develop and execute a very effective legal strategy. There were bumps along the way – motions may not go your way, dates may be reset outside of your control, but in the end we were able to show a jury that it was in the best interest of the children to live with me. Stacey is outstanding in the courtroom! Her demeanor and understanding of the law is second to none in that setting. If you go to trial you want Stacey representing you.
What makes Stacey the right choice is not just her resume, her certifications, her knowledge of the law and her expertise in front of both judges and juries, it's that she gets emotionally invested and it shows. She's different than other lawyers I've watched because I know she really cares about my family situation and all of the outcomes. She will also tell you what you need to hear whether it's what you want to hear or not. She’s got strong ethics and will tell you when you are wrong too. This is more important than you think as I've seen the difference in ethical and non-ethical lawyers during my trial. She’s also been fairly easy to communicate with as lawyers go and quick to respond. No lawyer is going to always be able to drop everything and answer every call or email immediately even if they advertise they will. A good lawyer will have a heavy case load with many clients to deal with and will be in court a lot. They also won't study all the details of your case months before your hearing or trial because they won't remember it. Once you understand this and realize she's on top of things despite you not having daily updates, you’ll learn to relax and let her work for you. But when Stacey walks into that courtroom I feel confident every time that I’ve got the right lawyer with me.

I actually haven't even had to retain Stacey yet- but I am waiting on my ex husband to file for custody of our14 year old son. When he does I will be going straight to her . She did my cousins divorce and was amazing! She fought for him and his kids.
