Great Attorney With Impeccable Service
I had an unfortunate incident where I found myself needing legal help. From the first time I spoke with Mr Carroll it was very clear that he sincerely wanted the best for me and my family and made it clear he would do whatever was needed to achieve that goal. He was very receptive to my needs and very knowledgeable on what needed to be done. Mr Carroll kept me updated every step of the way. I was and I still am VERY impressed with the help he provided!!

Outstanding Attorney
George Carroll was involved in our recent contested custody case. His knowledge of the law and his experience in the courtroom allowed him to dominate opposing counsel. Our case was extremely complex and had issues that involved both civil and criminal in multiple counties. He was able to coordinate it all and his expertise allowed the timing to all come together perfectly. He was a professional at all times, always available to give counsel and advice. Through the most stressful year of our lives he kept us calm and was the voice of reason when nothing else seemed to make sense or be even remotely reasonable. He's honest and ethical and it was glaringly apparent in the courtroom when others became dishonest and seemed to have no moral compass. His strategy during the trial unfolded beautifully and because he and Rebecca Jaroszewski were so well prepared we won our case. His drive, commitment to the case, commitment to honesty and justice is beyond impressive. He stood with us as we fought the fight of our lives and brought about justice. We won a hard fought case because of him, Rebecca Jaroszewski and their entire office. We would recommend him or anyone with Carroll and Hinajosa to you. The entire office works together to bring about the best possible result. We were given honest counsel throughout and given choices that would allow us to control fees and feel in total control of our case, yet felt comfort knowing we were in experienced legal hands.

Excellent lawyer
George Carroll has represented my family for the past 10 years. He got my brother's DWI dismissed and now he is a school teacher. He represented me through a messy divorce and got me joint custody and the children now live with me. He prepared wills for everyone in my family. I would trust him with any legal matter.

Very Satisfied Client
Mr. Carroll assisted me with a criminal case in New Braunfels, TX. His staff was professional and courteous and kept me apprised of my case at every turn. My case was ultimately dismissed! I couldn't be more grateful for Mr. Carroll and his staff!

Great Lawyer
Mr. Carroll was extremely considerate when dealing with my case. Not only was Mr. Carroll prompt in his response time, but he was also very knowledgeable with the type of case that I was handling at the time. He was able to get the charge taken off as well as expunged off of my record. Mr. Carroll has also taken care of minor traffic tickets and I was pleased with the outcome of those cases as well.

excellent service!
I have had several tickets and have used this law firm every time. They have always been upfront about what my options are and how much it will cost. They have taken care of them all in a timely manner and have kept me informed about everything. I highly recommend this law firm for any sort of case.

Military case
When first contacted Mr Carroll was very understanding and helped in so many ways We returned to him to handle a simple divorce case After 2 months case still had not gone to court couldn't get a return call from anyone in the office. After threating to ask for a refund got a call that the office was unable to get in touch with my son but never followed up for a different number or check files for another number. Really disappointed at this time

What a nightmare!
We had George on our case for 2 years and he accomplished absolutely nothing! He always had an excuse for why he didn't return calls or respond to emails from the opposing Attorney, One of the most aggravating experiences I have ever had. Would not recommend!!
