Beyond Excellence
Attorney Sylvia Cavazos is beyond the best of the best when it comes to trusting one to take your case to win. I would rate her beyond 100 stars if given the opportunity. She took two cases of ours that had her stand and speak for us as if they were her own. Mrs Cavazos was far the most knowledgeable attorney whom I have and will continue to recommend to anyone. Her cases are taken seriously. She handled our cases with much compassion and dedication. her communication is great as well as her promptness. She worked her magic and had my sons come home to live their future, for that I am very much in depth to her. She is the best there will ever be and ever want by your side to fight any legal case. Thank you Mrs Sylvia Cavazos for everything and may God always bless you abundantly!

Review for Sylvia Cavazos
Sylvia Cavazos represented my father with a case that took all of us by surprise. It felt as if we were all walking on eggshells with this hanging over our heads, and living in fear with the possibility that my dad could be taken away from us all.. not to mention his life would of been ruined by a false accusation. My father is my best friend and I’m not sure what I would of done with out him here by my side guiding me in everything I do like he does. I want to thank Sylvia for her constant reassurance and hard work on my dads case. She is the best of the best thank you for giving us our life back.

Dont worry about anything...
From the first interview with Ms Cavazos and throughout the pretrial and resets and pretrial and so on .. up to the dismissal of my case, this is what she would leave me with "dont worry about anything". Ms Cavazos is truly the best of the best in crminal defense. With Ms Cavazos extensive expertise in Sexual Assault and genuine concern for her clients, i would highly recommend her to anyone searching for the best representation in Texas.. on behalf my family thank you Sylvia you are truly a godsend!

Highly Satisfied
Ms. Cavazos was appointed to my case. After reviewing my case, she consulted with me and determined that my case should be dismissed, and that she would fight to get those results. My case was dismissed.. Ms. Cavazos did everything she said she would. Ms. Cavazos was very Knowledgeable, Professional, and Thorough. I was highly pleased with her representation, and would certainly retain her services in the future if needed.

We were all so surprised we were all in tears. Thank you Ms. Cavazos.. you don't how much we appreciated your time and effort.. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.. Sincerely Smith & Family

Extraordinary Attorney
Sylvia Cavazos provides professional and effective service. She represented me in two cases and was able to get them both dismissed. She guided me through the process and fought for the very best result, never dismissing the idea of taking the fight to trial if needed. I would highly recommend Sylvia to anyone needing legal assistance!!!

Case Dismissed
Ms. Cavazos went above and beyond my expectation. From day one in meeting her I knew things would go well. She was very knowledgable, empathic towards my situation, had a dominant presence in the court room. I am very grateful to have had such an exceptional lawyer. My case did end up getting dismissed but if I had lost I know I made the right choice hiring Ms. Cavazos. Very grateful.

White Collar Case
I was lost, confused, scared, my life was in shambles until I met Ms. Cavazos! Almost 2 years of worrying about what was going to happen with my case, my life, all through that time, Ms. Cavazos was with me and gave me all the support I needed. She was with me every step of the way. She took her time to explain to me and my parents my legal case and what needed to be done. Not only she gave me comfort but she took her time to talk with my parents who are elderly and were extremely worried about me. Even though, I felt I was a pain, calling and asking about my case, she always made time to talk with me to give me comfort! I don't know what I would have done without her! She is an excellent attorney and knows what she is doing, very professional with a big caring heart!! On July 2016 she gave me the greatest news I could of had, she dismissed my case and my case was never open!!! She made this happen, and I can't thank her enough!! She changed my life and I will never forget her! Now I can live peaceful without that burden of my legal case that I could not live life and she made this happen! I highly recommend her, she will be with you every step of the way!

Ms. Cavazos is awesome
Words cannot express how tremendously grateful I am with the services provided by the Law Office of Sylvia Cavazos. My son got in trouble and was being charged with Aggravated Assault with a deadly weapon. It was a nightmare and had no idea what to expect since we have never been involved with the justice system. I had some reservations about hiring an attorney to handle my son's case but in the end I was very glad that I made the decision to do so and that I hired Ms. Cavazos. Her professionalism, experience and personal charm gave me complete confidence in her ability to get the best possible outcome for my son. Needless to say my son's case was dismissed. I highly recommend her. Thank you very much! You were a blessing to me and my family.

Ms. Cavazos is OUTSTANDING!
Hiring Ms. Cavazos was the best decision I made when facing three traffic violations. While visiting my parents in San Antonio I received three traffic violations that included speeding, not having proof of insurance, and going at an unsafe speed. Ms. Cavazos was able to get ALL three violations dismissed from court. Her assistant Laura was very helpful as well throughout the whole process. I highly recommend Ms. Cavazos for any legal help! Great attorney and an outstanding person as well!

Dedicated Attorney
I don't normally leave reviews on services rendered, but to deny Ms. Cavazos the courtesy of one with all she has done would be an injustice. The legal process is a tough and often times confusing one especially at my age, but every question asked was answered with a speedy response that was clear, cut, and to the point. I never once had to track her down and was even able to call on the weekends, a much-needed perk as two days of unanswered questions can leave a person in unrest. The amount of attention given to me during this hectic time made my life so much easier and I always felt like I was in good hands. Do yourself a favor and make an appointment to see Ms. Cavazos if you’re in legal troubles, the amount of experience and dedication she offers should not be overlooked.

Awesome Attorney
Over the past few years, I found myself in need of legal representation several times and Sylvia Cavazos represented me each time. Her professionalism and experience gave me complete confidence in her ability to handle my cases. Ms. Cavazos and her staff were always easy to contact and explained everything in detail throughout my entire cases. Needless to say, all of my cases were dismissed. I would highly recommend Ms. Cavazos for a defense attorney... D.A. (San Antonio )
