I hired Mr. Clay to work my divorce case. He was very courteous and discussed my case over the phone. He reluctantly met with me a second time. I paid him the retainer fee of $2500. I later in the process started to trying to get updates from him and could not get them. I tried to meet with him and he told me that there would be no face to face communication and that everything would be done over the telephone. I had to put my foot down just to get answers over the telephone. On one occasion I stopped by his office and was told he was not in the office. As I started to leave another person checked in to see him with an appointment. Finally, when I went to court I could not even remember what he looked like. I had to call him to see who answered the cell in a group of about 3 lawyers. in the end, I paid $2500 for an uncontested divorce. 3 stars because he had poor communication and he is quick to take your money, but refuses to meet with you to keep you updated on the case.

I needed assistance for a divorce on a short turnaround since I was moving out of state. Mr. Clay set an appointment with me quickly. He helped me understand what steps I needed to take and what paperwork to complete. He communicated with me about what to do next when my ex-husband didn't show up for the hearing. He attended court a second time, at no additional charge, when I flew into Texas a few weeks later to attend the hearing myself. He treated me with respect. My only (minor) complaint was that he was not as prompt as I would have preferred; I am nervous and tend to arrive to events early, so I got a bit squirrely when he was held up in traffic.

I came to Mr. Clay as a service member in need of a divorce in which I myself could not be in attendance for court as I would not be in the state at the time. His pricing was reasonable and he executed as expected without problems. He was quick in returning phone calls, emails, and answering any questions I had; making this situation stress free. The turn around time for completing the task from Mr. Clay was impeccible. I appreciate all that he did for me. And would gladly recommend him to anyone else requiring the same services. Thank you again!

I found Mr. Clay on a goole search of adoption lawyers for SATX. Later I found that I worked with a individual who had previously used his services. I made the first contact and was replied to within the hour. He was very up front with the process, the fee and all the requirements. He was sensitive to our families needs (we're military) and he treated us like we were the only clients that mattered when ever we were involved with him. Every bit of our process worked exactly as she stated and nothing was hidden or changed or left out. Now because of his help and his efforts, our family is truly complete.

Mr. Clay was caring and sensitive to my situation. My divorce dragged on due to the other party and he was supportive all the way to the end. He was professional at all times and was always quick to respond to me by both phone and email. He gave me excellent advice and looked out for my best interests.

I contacted J Michael Clay as well as some other attorneys for pricing. There was one other attorney that offered pricing at a difference of $200 from Mr. Clay. But by talking to Mr. Clay his knowledge and friendly customer service sucked me in to using his services. I have a wife that was not willing to sign a divorce agreement, she refused to sign, and myself serving overseas as a service member was difficult. So Mr. Clay made it easy and it didn't take as long as I thought. Great service and would recommend!

Mr. Clay assisted me greatly during my divorce. He was able to quickly familiarize himself with the specifics of my case and issues, and facilitate a smooth ending to my divorce while I was stationed overseas. If you are military and out of country, it can be easy to feel like the system is stacked against you. Mr. Clay knows the military system, and it was a huge help to feel like you have someone on your side.
Thanks again sir.

The experience I had with his firm was as smooth and painless as one could hope for. Always professional and punctual on all set deadlines. The price is competitive compared to other private firms out there and very easy to get a hold of any of the helpful staff in regards to questions which were answered with great haste. I continue to thank him for finalizing this unfortunate bump in the road so I can move on with my life.
