Not only would I recommend Shane, I will use him again if needed. He is extremely knowledgeable and yet somehow does not come across as arrogant. Shane makes you feel as though you are his only client. He returns your call promptly and keeps you informed along the way. If you are in need of an experienced attorney, Shane should be your first call.

Mr. Phelps was referred to me by another attorney for a family law case, from the start this was a difficult case due to the other party evolved. Shane was great in the court room he is very calculating and was great on cross exam. I have had several attorneys over the years Mr. Phelps and his staff where professional, timely and extremely client friendly. I highly recommend him; he is also handling my estate planning and any other legal matters going forward.

Shane Phelps is an excellent attorney. I have known him as both the First Assistant in the Brazos County District Attorney's Office and as an attorney in private practice. He is an effective, results oriented and ethical advocate who is seldom rivaled.
