Awesome Lawyer!
Tina was a pleasure to work with. She made a difficult situation so easy. She was professional , courteous , respectful of both my needs and that of my now x-wife. Just because you don't want to be married to someone , doesn't mean you want to hurt them. Tina understood that and gave me great counsel on how to proceed for what I wanted and needed.

Devoted and Meticulous Lawyer
Tina was a superb lawyer that helped provide direction and guidance for legal documentation our family could not resolve. She stepped in and helped us navigate the complex administrative hurdles and provided routine updates. She was always available and responsive even through a global pandemic. We were very pleased with the level of service she provided.

The world needs more people like Tina Torres
I hired Tina to help me with my divorce. She was polite, informative and professional! Tina was in constant communication and responded to my inquiries promptly. I most appreciated her honesty and candid answers to my questions. This was my first, and hopefully last, divorce. She made the transition for me as painless as possible. I was more than satisfied with my separation settlement. I would definitely recommend her to family and friends.

Truly cares and strong willed.
I came to Tina for my divorce because my father used her decades ago for a different type of case. I was completely lost on the process and have a disabled son I needed to make sure my husband and I both had his interest as our top priority. Even though my divorce was not a ugly or hard one Tina made sure everyone involved was educated and agreed to everything that was outlined. She definitely is a life long family friend of ours now and considered family in my book. I will always recommend her to all my family and friends who find themselves in need of a amazing and strong willed family lawyer. Thank you so much for everything you’ve done for my family and still help out with.

Don’t mess with Tina and Amy!
I had the pleasure of being a client of Tina and Amy. They took care of my case and made sure my daughter was kept safe. They are very fair and have many years of experience combined together. They answer emails right away and are very professional. If I ever need anything again when it comes to my child custody issues...I will call on Tina and Amy! They are angels...but tough angels :)

AMAZING ATTORNEY & WONDERFUL PERSON
When I initially first called to inquire about the divorce process Tina was the first voice I heard on the other line. She inquired about my circumstances and answered all my preliminary questions. At the time I was not ready to begin the process, but when my situation quickly changed, Tina was there again. I had not yet retained her and yet she was responding to emails and calls and helping to navigate my circumstances. After meeting with Tina she was very compassionate, caring and was able to help me separate my emotions from the facts of my case. Throughout the process, she was responsive to all my communication and helped to put me at ease. On the day of court, Tina was profession and very matter of fact, she again helped to put my nerves at ease and explained the process and all the steps that would occur. While at the court house I was astonished at all the people that not only knew Tina, but went out of his/her way to tell her hi and she how she was doing, it showed me that her kindness and genuineness went well beyond the attorney/client relationship. Despite divorce being a very hard and emotional draining process, she helped me every step of the way. I will forever be thankful for Tina and all her hard work. Tina was a blessing to me and I honestly believe she was answer to my prayers at a pivotal time in my life. From the bottom of my heart Thank You Tina!!!

The answer to your families prayers!
Being referred to Tina for a child custody case was one of the best things that could have happened to my family and I. After requesting to raise child support from the non custodial parent, we were served with a custody suit. I called Tina as a scared mother and unsure of the future. She walked me through the process, made a plan, and got to work. Throughout the case she made sure that I was always up to date, responded to my emails and questions very quickly, and even worked on my case over weekends when needed. Tina is professional, reliable, honest about expectations and possible outcomes, and well prepared. She always reviewed my case with me and was honest about all of the options and possible outcomes from our choices. Walking into court with Tina, you instantly feel the respect that others in her profession have for her and after watching her in court, I wouldn't want anyone else by my side. She is well prepared, quick with responses, and ready to fight for what is right. Most importantly, she allowed me to continue to fully focus on my family and children while she focused on working on my case. That type of support in such a trying time is priceless and it takes a fabulous attorney to be able to empower her client and dominate in the courtroom. She is truly the best of the best.

Difficult Divorce and Child Custody Case
Tina has been extremely supportive. She picked up my case after my previous attorney moved to another city. My case is already difficult because my ex attempts to drag out every hearing by making false claims about me, an amicus, a witness, her siblings and her own attorney, block visitations, calls the police and argues with them regularly, makes outlandish claims about our daughter's disabilities and argues with judges on a regular basis. It is a circus. Fortunately, Tina is very patient and professional above all else. She gives me her recommendations on what to do next and I couldn't be happier with her performance. She clearly has experience and knows the system very well. Comparing her to other attorneys: 1. She is far more responsive. 2. She pays attention to the details. 3. She knows which battles to fight and which ones to let go. 4. Fantastic strategist. 5. Well spoken. 6. Well known among her peers. 7. Her reviews on here are a testament to her. She's been amazing!

The Best!
Tina is the best! I highly recommend her to anyone who is going through child custody issues. Even with her busy schedule she always made sure she answered any questions/concerns that I had in regards to my case. She made it a priority to make sure that we did not leave any details out and always kept constant communication going throughout the entire process. She was always professional, well prepared, and organized. I am super happy with our results and I would definitely say we've hit a home run with our case! Thank you Tina.

Down to Earth and very professional
I needed to find someone as good as my divorce attorney to modify my divorce decree to include travel verbiage that I had not thought of at the time of my divorce. Tina was referred to me by my divorce attorney's office since my divorce attorney was no longer a practicing attorney. Boy did they guide me in the right direction! Tina is a darn good attorney that is kind, just, and fights for the right reasons and for the right results. Tina is down to Earth yet very professional at the same time. During the course of my first hearing my ex-husband threw in a curve ball for 50/50 possession... this was totally unforeseen. I recall Tina mentioning it to me initially and I was a nervous wreck. Tina was always very reassuring and told me not to worry. During our initial hearing Tina said "You want to go ahead and tackle the other matter? I am ready if you are ready!" Throughout the course of our meetings Tina never promised me that the outcome would turn out in our favor, but rather she told me that the outcome laid in the hands of our assigned judge. I really appreciated her honesty and and how frank and poised she was during the entire process. I would HIGHLY recommend Tina if you are looking for someone to represent you.

Absolutely the best!!
A friend referred us to Tina and we couldn’t be more grateful! She was amazingly thorough and patient with us throughout the entire process. The other party tried to pull a fast one over on us but Tina caught those things quickly and turned everything around in our favor. Being in court with her, it is obvious that she’s well known and respected. Her retainer fee is more than fair and would recommend her a million times if you need legal help from a trustworthy power force!

Tina is great! I highly recommend her! She was able to get me through a difficult situation. She put me at ease explaining every step and pros and cons to every option i could take. She responds quickly to all my questions. Having to deal with child custody i was confused and honestly a mess..there were so many questions i had and she always reviewed my case with me and my options. Her attitude and confidence is what i most like about her! The first time i talked to her i knew i needed her on my case. She is straight forward and reliable, she wont waist your time. I will continue to consult with her in any future matter.

Fighter all the way!
I have been using Tina since 2012 when she had originally done my divorce and that whole process was almost to easy! Since then I have been using her for modifications to my order that was sent into place back then as well. Most recently my husband and I reached out to her because we were seeking custody of his daughter. It was a difficult case from the get go because of all the challenges my stepdaughter was having. This whole ordeal took us a little over a year but in the end it was so worth it!! WE WON. Tina never backed down and went head to head with the opposing party in true Tina style. The end result was definitely in our favor. I would HIGHLY recommend anyone who is looking for a hard working attorney that’s gonna fight for you to seek Tina’s services.

My one-stop-shop Attorney!
I know that no one thing fits everyone but Tina Torres is about a close as it comes to being the perfect attorney for whatever it is your going through. I having been working with Tina for over 5yrs on and off dealing with custody, child support and recently pension issues. During this time with working with Tina I have always been station at MacDill AF Base (Military Vet) in Tampa, Florida. So I haven't always been privileged to dealing with her face-to-face like most clients do. Unfortunately for me I have always being gone TDY and deployed overseas during this stint, so I had to step out on faith and pray that my hard earned money that I was going to give to her would be money well spent. Well Im here to tell you that Tina Torres is a person who is very competent and very professional when it came to handling me as client from afar. With the multiple case I had dealing with my ex-wife over child support and custody, Tina's hard work and due diligence got me W's in both case that I brought her way and it was done with outstanding professionalism, great communication and reliability that became the standard for her. All of that first-rate service also came with a reasonable rate that made me feel even more confident with Tina getting the job done for me with my custody & child support battle and also with other future cases in which i would need to seek legal counseling/advice from her. Even after she had won all of my cases and things returned back to normal for my daughter and I, Tina still went out of her way to ensure we were both doing ok back in Tampa. During my 5 yrs of experience with working with Tina, I can tell you that she is consistently great at her job but, the icing on the cake to me was that she truly exhibited herself to be a people person to me while also unveiling a tremendous amount of devotion to her client. I must say that Tina truly cares about what your going through during your situation and makes ever effort to ensure to you, that she's here for you and also for whatever may be in your best interest at the time.... she is definitely a straight shooter for sure! And by any means if she cant help you she will again go out of her way to find an attorney worthy of your case, time and money! She did it for me and I came away with the same winning results again!! I personally appreciate and admire that type of attorney-client service when it come to me spending my hard earned dollar on any anyone. Her outstanding record and her attorney client services speak for themselves.... and I do too! But the reason I speak so highly of Tina is because, when I originally came to Tina I just wanted to win my case and she eventually made that happen for me, but what I wasn't expecting that I received from her was someone I could always trust to be truthful and devoted to my case no matter what the situation was, nor the time of the day. Time and time again, Tina has come through for me in times of need no matter where I was at in the world! And that trait is rare trait to find nowadays in any profession when it comes to you entrusting someone, let alone you entrusting in someone from afar to better your real life obstacles.... I will pick Tina Torres every time!

When your family matters most...
I have often been accused of being "over-protective" of my children, and even being referred to as a "helicopter mom", so the thought of losing custody of my son never even crossed my mind. That is, until the attorney general's office increased the non-custodial parent's child support, and he decided to file suit against me for custody, in retaliation. My immediate response was panic and heartbreak. Because I am not a resident of Bexar County, I had no idea who to contact for help. I reached out to a friend (who obviously heard the desperation in my voice) and strongly recommended I contact Ms. Torres' office right away. I did so, and I am so relieved that I did! From the very beginning, Ms. Torres, along with her staff, were extremely diligent and made me feel as if the fate of my son's custody was just as critical as any other case they may have been handling. I am not familiar with the court system and it's processes, so I am very thankful Ms. Torres took my case. She was efficient and took the time to answer all of my questions THOROUGHLLY throughout the entire process! I appreciated her professional and honest opinion regarding the circumstances of my case. Ms. Torres' experience proved to be invaluable as she is extremely knowledgeable and provided clarity and reassurance for me during this stressful time. (It is no wonder she is so well-respected in the Bexar County courthouse!) Ms. Torres' aggressive approach to handling my case made me confident in my decision to invest my faith in her to protect the rights of my family. My children are my most cherished gifts from God and I will always be grateful to Ms. Torres and her team for their commitment to supporting me in protecting my son's best interest. It is with a grateful heart that I confidently recommend anyone in need of legal representation for family matters to contact the office of Ms. Tina Torres.

Answer to my prayers!
I had reached out to a number of attorneys and all turned down my case. Tina was referred to me by my aunt and she immediately was honest about setting expectations. She laid out the game plan and instantly got to work. My case was won within a few months and I couldn't be happier! I highly recommend Tina to anyone who is seeking an honest and reliable attorney. She always responded to my emails in a very timely manner!
