Truly Amazing!
None of us wants to go thru divorce, it is a very emotional time and can be so overwhelming. However, the entire process was so much better with Heather and her fabulous team helping me navigate the situation. Several times throughout the process I felt that they went above and beyond to extend care and support. I truly feel blessed to have had these ladies by my side during my divorce.

There is light on the other side
I couldn't see the light to the other side when struggling with how to continue as I had been in long and drawn-out divorce and custody situation. I no longer had the initial lawyer on my case. There was a lot that had already been done yet i felt like a stranger in my own case. I had so many questions that were never answered. I was never educated or informed and felt as if I wasn't being listened to. Having a hard time knowing I would need a lawyer to continue with mycase as I had lost any trust within the law the system and especially lawyers. A lot of money out and several hearings with no end. I couldn't stay in limbo forever. I knew I would need a lawyer to finalize my case. What I didn't know was how I could trust a lawyer. I didn't believe I could find someone who knew the law and would be willing to educate me as I didn't even know my legal rights. I started searching online and came across Heather and Kate. I cant explain what it was but instantly there was something pushing me towards [email protected]. After convinsing myself to call and speaking with Kate I knew I was on the right path. I scheduled my initial consultation with Heather and before it had ended I was all in without a doubt I had found the ones for me. Heather and Kate not only do what they do out of love and compassion but to educate their clients and ensure they truly know and understand everything about their case and the law. They don't just hear you they will actually listen to you and assist you with the best outcome to your individual case. I was provided with so much information there was a lot of reading but I'd rather be over informed then feel like a stranger in my own case. Anytime I needed help understanding as sometimes the legal terms can be confusing they were there. I may not always like what what i heard but I knew I could trust it and that it was always in my in best interest. Heather and Kate are the best balance they truly complement each other in a good cop bad cop kind of way which was perfect for me and all it takes is one lecture from Kate to set you straight. They will treat you like family. Not only did I always know what was going on with my case but they made sure I actually understood everything involved. What is most likely the most difficult time in life as it was for me. These ladies will combine knowing the law and truly having a heart and with their compassion to help makes this difficult time a little less difficult. Hands down without a doubt I recommend this team. I will and am forever grateful to Heather and Kate they where my "angels" of law. There was light on the other side.

Respectful and Honest
This was the first time in my life that I have needed an attorney. I hired Ms. Hudson to represent me in a child support and possession case involving my daughter. In the very first consultation time, effort, patience, and respect was given to me from both Ms. Hudson and her paralegal. Most importantly they listened to my situation and provided their honest knowledge. I had contacted other lawyers in my search and had not received any treatment close to theirs. Ms. Hudson educated me about the situation and process of what I was facing every step of the way. I knew I was made a priority given the great availability I was shown to answer any questions or concerns. She always spoke with me with an even-keeled, respectful tone. I was never made to feel like any of my questions were dumb or irrelevant. All of these things were key to putting my trust in her knowledge and skills of a family attorney. Every document was presented to me to review and make any changes before they were sent out officially. There was never a decision made or communicated to opposing council without my input. I felt involved and aware of every step of the process of mediation as well. In fact I always was prepared about what was to come before the actual event. In the end I received an amicable order that had my daughter's best interests at hand. I can not thank Ms. Hudson enough for all her work. I highly recommend hiring Ms. Hudson for any Family Law needs!

My Dream Team!
I hired Heather for a high conflict custody battle. Heather and Kates' services and counsel was above reproach. They went above and beyond to help me navigate my custody battle, which resulted in my cases closing extremely favorably when all indicators pointed otherwise. It was apparent from the start that she truly cared about my situation and did everything to make sure the successful outcome of my case was a priority, all while giving me a realistic expectation. Throughout the custody process, Heather kept me fully informed every step of the way, and explained all aspects in its entirety and thoroughly. Heather and her team were extremely diligent in returning all my phone calls, answering emails and calming my anxiety through this difficult time. I was able to get a visitation order that fully encompassed what was required for the child, the child support settled, and was able to get legal parameters put in place to stop the harassment I was receiving from my ex. I honestly cannot thank her and Kate enough, if I ever have any future family law issues I will always return back to Heather Hudson.

Amazing
She was beyond amazing through the whole process. She was honest and up front about everything. She helped me modify my child custody agreement and in the end it was better than I had originally planned for. Everyone in this firm is honest and upfront, they don’t promise you things they can’t deliver. The only interest they have in mind is the best interest of the child. They are extremely professional and courteous and I would recommend them to everyone.

Heather did great for me.
Heather was direct, informative, and emotionally supportive throughout this difficult time for me. She did her best and the outcome worked out very well for me. At the time, no matter what, the outcome always seems bad in divorce, but our efforts turned out to be great and I know I couldn’t have done it alone. Thank you again, Heather and team. I hope to never have to work with y’all again! But if I do, it’ll be you that I call on.

Couldn’t have asked for a better attorney
You know what’s hard to find? An attorney in San Antonio who has experience with same-sex couple’s divorces (and dog custody battles), and doesn’t require your entire life savings plus a kidney as a retainer. Heather did an amazing job of getting me exactly what I wanted, and kept me from losing my marbles throughout the process. She and Kate did a great job of always keeping me informed of what was going on through my acrimonious divorce, and handled even the most ridiculous situations (I mean... it was a wiener dog custody battle after all) with professionalism and grace. If you need a law firm that will work hard to resolve a situation with as little emotional upheaval as possible and be cognizant of not separating you from ALL of your money, I highly recommend Mysti Murphy law firm & Ms. Hudson in particular.

My divorce was a tough case to handle. She helped me every step of the way. I never was out of loop. She stayed with me for hours of mediation and never gave up. She always stayed positive but realistic. I could not have asked for a better lawyer.

Couldn't have asked for a better team
Heather and the team did a wonderful job representing me. She was honest and fair in all matters regarding my divorce and custody of my child. She kept me grounded and kept my child at the forefront of all decisions. Heather and Kate are matter of fact, do not waste your time or money, and show compassion and empathy. Divorce is messy and can get very ugly, and this law firm keeps the situation professional at all times. I am grateful to have had such great representation during my divorce.

Awesome Legal Team!
Heather and her team were amazing during my Suit Affecting the Parent-Child Relationship (SAPCR). This process was extremely difficult for me for several reasons, but I'm sure others who have or are going through a similar situation, can relate. From the moment I walked into The Mysti Murphy Law Firm, I was greeting with the best customer service I've seen in a LONG time. After my consultation, I hired Ms. Heather Hudson. She and her team took charge and had my Son and my BEST interest at heart. The confidence they both displayed during my time of need and in the courtroom was unwavering and their dedication for fighting for my rights made me comfortable with what was going to happen during my trial. Most importantly, they were honest with me! They explained the good, the bad, the ugly and I NEEDED that. Without their legal guidance and support I wouldn't have been able to WIN roughly 85% of my case. I will be forever grateful to Heather and her team and in the event I need to go back to court, rest assured, I WILL hire them again!

Excellent and professional services rendered
The first meeting with the staff had me understanding that this was a tightly run and professional organization. Mysti Murphy is a nationally recognized law firm with highlights in magazines in the field she represents. My lawyer Heather Hudson has been serving with Mysti for 2 years and was just named one of the top 10 Lawyers in Texas. That says alot about her as an individual and about Mysti as a leader and mentor. Heather was very well prepared and extremely thourough with the information presented to the judge. I was very comfortable with them and I followed all of their instructions knowing that I would be well taken care of. A special thanks to their paralegal , Kate, for keeping all of us accountable and timely. They are all top notch professionals that ensure the utmost confidentiality with information and their attention to detail is second to none.

The Perfect Pair
Heather (lawyer) and Kate (paralegal) did an outstanding job of representing my side of a custody case. Because of them, I could not have been more prepared legally or emotionally. They answered all my questions (there were many), they prepared me for the ins/outs of court, they listened to ALL of my requests and put it into the contract. Heather is more reserved, it's like she is always thinking about how she is going to execute the next move. When you finally see/hear her thought process, she is brilliant. Kate is more forward with her knowledge. She has a powerful presence and did a great job of understanding how to handle my concerns. From the beginning of it all I wanted a strong legal team that was going to set up a fair custody contract for my daughter. Not one time did I feel they lost track of that and they did an excellent job of executing it too! Heather and Kate were my perfect pair!!!!

Confident, Advocate, Compassionate
I am so thankful that Heather was willing to accept my case. At nearly sixty years old, needing the services of a lawyer for the first time in one's life, and for a divorce, is overwhelming. I was constantly impressed with Heather's calm confidence as she guided me through the process as well as her compassion when the proceedings were personally difficult for me. More importantly, she demonstrated skill and patience as the decree was resubmitted numerous times for revisions by my spouse. As my advocate, Heather worked tirelessly to make sure that my future would be financially secure and in fact the final decree reflected exactly what we discussed in our initial consultation.
