Stacy was great for my first time I hired her for the divorce. The second time was a nightmare--I received a 2 invoices over a 17 month period. I saw her for 3 things and I'm still working with the OAG myself to resolve the increased to child support. Went to court in July..October her office had still not competed the document with basics on it. I received continuous charges for following up on her.

My husband moved our children and I to Texas 5 years ago after accepting a position with his company. The children and I came down six weeks after him due to waiting for the school marking period to end so that they could start at their new schools at the beginning of the new six week marking period. It was a very difficult transition for my children and myself as I left behind my recently widowed mother of 81 years old, but I was trying to support my husband in his new position and felt the move may be for the best for our family. I discovered after living here for 3 years that he had been involved in an affair with his co-worker that started before the children and I even moved here. I was devastated and with the advice of family and friends I decided to hire Stacy to file for divorce based on his infidelity. The divorce was filed in December of 2014. My husband pleaded with me to try to reconcile and work things out. In January of 2015 I decided to try to reconcile as I am not an advocate for dicorce and come from a traditional Catholic family. However after a few months of trying to reconcile I realized that he was still seeing the same woman. Unfortunately, prior to discovering this, I dismissed the case, against Stacy's advice. I felt it was the best way to prove my diligence to my husband in trying to reconcile. Stacy advised me to just leave the case on hold until we were sure everything was working out but I insisted on dismissing it. That was March of 2015. Immediately I noticed the difference in my husband's enthusiasm in trying to work things out and realized I had made a huge mistake. I called Stacy and explained I had screwed up and wanted to proceed with the divorce. Stacy is a compassinate person. She said she would do her best to go forward to help me. Long story short, even with a divorce no longer pending, and witbout having to refile, we were able to go before the judge and convince him to sign the petition to lift the dismissal and proceed with the divorce. Due to the amount of time that had passed, the moment he signed the paperwork the divorce became official since we were way past the waiting period. That was March of 2016, a year after I had dismissed it . Stacy never charged me another dime after the original agreed fee almost two years prior and helped me out of the nightmare I had been living. Stacey is an excellent attorney who cares about her clients and does not treat them all the same but carefully assesses each case upon the situation the client is in. I cannot say enough about her. She is professional yet compassionate and truly cares about her clients. You cannot find a better attorney. She will go to bat for you 100% and then some. If you are looking for representation of an attorney in the New Braunfels/San Antonio area, look no further than Stacy Goodbread, she is absolutely the best out there.

Going through a tricky divorce, other lawyers that I consulted with told me that I was in a really bad spot and justice was not going to be able to be served in this divorce. Stacy took the time to dig deep into the facts and worked MIRACLES! She was supportive and personable and I never for a second regretting hiring her on the spot. She is the best bang for your buck and is an absolute bulldog in the court room! She is level headed and knows this process like the back of her hand. She cares about the outcome and her staff is also very attentive and patient. There were a bunch of bumps in the road that Stacy and her team smoothed out and I could not be happier!! For such a stressful and high-emotional experience Stacy really put things into perspective and calmed my worries. I would without a doubt, hire her again if I had to relive this process over again!

I'm not sure there are enough words to describe our gratitude towards Stacy. I am a step parent to 2 amazing children. A few years after she handled my husbands divorce - We had an emergency situation in which we needed to file for immediate custody of the kids. The other half of the situation was a very dangerous and unstable one. Without hesitation, Stacy immediately went to trial for us to obtain these emergency orders. I don't think we even expected it to happen as fast as it did. Knowing these 2 kids were in a safe environment 24/7 with us was a very comforting feeling. In the year following that, we went through all of the motions to obtain full custody. What could have been a very stressful year for us, was made much easier because of Stacy. Her quick responses, knowledge, and advice were very helpful in getting us through that year. She is exactly what you should be looking for in a lawyer. Responsive, aggressive, and fights for you.
2 years later, we have 2 very happy children. They are in a stable home with 2 very loving and responsible parents. What she has done for our family is priceless. The fact that these kids can now truly be themselves and can feel safe every day is something that I will forever be grateful to Stacy for.
I highly recommend Stacy Goodbread and we will continue to utilize her expertise and knowledge with future concerns. I believe she truly does put you first and has a genuine passion for what she does.

I used Stacy to help resolve a child support issue with my ex-husband. I must say I was very impressed with how she handled my case from beginning to end. She is extremely professional and knows family law inside and out. Her office runs so smoothly and kept me very well informed. She is highly respected by her fellow attorneys, as well as the Judges. I honestly felt like my ex didn't stand a chance against her and I was right. She was unshakable. If you have a contested Family Law case, don't look anywhere else. You won't be disappointed.

Stacy is the best lawyer you could ask for. She has been so great in every possible way. I've always been kept up to date on my case and she has been a very trustworthy lawyer. The only reason I didn't put 'excellent' on every option is because I am doing this review on my phone and it wouldn't let me.
Go to Stacy. You will not be disappointed.

Stacy Goodbread and her team were a breath of fresh air and truly gave me renewed hope in our legal system. I had become so stressed out through feeling taken advantage of in the past that I had lost faith. Her and her team answered any question I had and remained helpful through all proceedings and follow ups. I simply cannot overemphasize how implemental they were in helping me through my case. I highly recommend her to anyone needing legal assistance or advice.

As my mother gets older I find myself taking care of more and more of her affairs. After many discussions we decided to consult with an attorney for a solution. Stacy Goodbread came highly recommended and rightfully so. She has successfully handled a friends divorce and my friend did much better than she had expected. Stacy easily guided us through a POA as well as a will. It was easy after it was explained to us. It was handled quickly and with great care. We are very pleased. A few friends of ours have Stacy update their wills. She is a huge success amongst our circle of friends. I'm sure her great attitude and professionalism won't be a secret for long.

I went to Ms. Goodbread on recommendation She turned out to be one of the most unresponsive lawyers I have ever seen. She is charming and smart but don't be fooled she is not a good lawyer for divorce and if you are male stay away from her. She is unreachable takes long vacations and generally does not give a crap except for money. STAy AWAY from her. let me and my $20000 useless dollars tell you so

Stacey Goodbread was my Divorce Attorney in a very comprehensive and difficult case. I was in for the fight of my life with an EX, who had hired four Attorney's to represent him over the course of my case. Stacy kept me calm, involved and focused throughout this time. Stacy is well respected in the Legal field, among her peers and Judges, and for good reason. I have confidently referred Stacy several times over the years, and every person was thoroughly impressed with her extensive legal abilities and remarkable professionalism. I could not have been more pleased with the outcome, her expertise, compassion and tenaciousness in representing me and my children.
