In distress in the courtroom for my first hearing ever to be had in a courtroom in a big city I had no idea what to expect. I heard my child's name called, several more names called then before you know it...break time. I had no clue what was going on. Mrs.Ashley passed by me with her head held high, with tears streaming down my face I stopped her. Without a blink of an eye she helped me figure out what was going on and this was before I even hired her. For the first time in my life I needed a lawyer. It was a very stressful and emotional process for me but Ashley and Pam helped to assure me everything would be ok, as it was. They made this unpleasant process manageable. She is honest and knowledgeable. They both answered any questions promptly via text phone call or email. I appreciate the help, patience, understanding and professionalism I experienced with Ashley.
If you are in need of an Amazing Lawyer I highly recommend you choose Ashley, as I will definitely choose her again when/if needed!

Since departing the military almost three years ago, I’ve been involved in a heavy battle with a vindictive ex-spouse using “malicious mother” tactics. My ex-spouse’s extreme behavior has caused the divorce process to be very stressful and emotional. That’s why I am so grateful for having Ashley represent me as my attorney. Her vast knowledge and outstanding professionalism helped ease the tension throughout the divorce and has allowed me to still be a part of my child’s life despite the puerile tactics used by my ex. I highly recommend anyone, especially service members, to select Ashley Butler as their attorney. You will not be disappointed.

Ashley Butler is who you need if you want a fierce advocate that cowers to no one. As a retired Army officer, I got myself into an ugly situation with a very uncooperative woman. Ashley literally saved me from stalking, false accusations, just about every bad behavior and my spouses lawyer dragging simple things out and making things difficult.
Her paralegal Pam is awesome. Always responsive. Solving problems and dealing with the outlandish behavior of my spouse. They negotiated a perfect settlement agreement, got it through the courts despite the feet dragging of my spouses attorney. I don't know how I would have fixed this aweful mistake marrying a person that had devious behavior and getting an annulment leaving me whole, without loss of my property, belongings and dignity. It was a very difficult situation but Ashley is known to other lawyers as a fierce opponent and her reputation and previous successes will help you get through your difficult legal issues.
You are making a mistake not hiring Ashley Butler and her team. Her fees are reasonable, her knowledge and respect she gets in court are second to none. Pick someone that other lawyers fear going up against. She will battle for your rights and get you what the law says you deserve. I am fortunate to have had her represent me.

I hired Ashley to handle my divorce after my first attorney was totally unprofessional and horrible. Naturally, never having done this before and that being my first experience - I was jaded and scared. During consultation, Ashley was confident and answered every question I had regarding my specific situation. She really made me feel at ease.
Once I hired her, she and her legal assistant were extremely forthcoming with communication. They proactively kept me updated on each process and if I did reach out to them for any reason, they were very quick to return phone calls or messages. I couldn't ask for a better lawyer or human being to have by my side during this difficult time.
Because of her professionalism and caring, I hired her again a year later to handle the protective order against my unstable ex-husband. I didn't even think of looking for another attorney, she was the first person I thought of! I knew she would do everything in her power for me and do it with such a compassionate, caring demeanor. Once again, she did an amazing job for me.
I recommend her to everyone I meet that may need that kind of assistance, and I share my wonderful experience with them all.
If you're reading this, it's because you need someone on your side - you're doing your research because you don't know where to start or you want to be sure of who you are spending your hard earned money on to have in your corner, when times are already very difficult and stressful- and I'm here to tell you, you WANT Ashley on your side. She is truly amazing!

It is never easy when you are battling with a former spouse or partner over the care of a child. That said, you want to know that you are getting help from someone who genuinely cares about your situation. I can wholeheartedly say that Ashley cared about my case. She did not treat me as a one size fits all client. She invested time and wisely used the retainer and fees I paid. She was a wealth of knowledge with resources for additional assistance. She truly understands the needs of her clients.
I have dealt with other attorneys prior to finding Ashley. In my experience, other attorneys seem more preoccupied with dragging the cases on. This provides an impact to the family in both financial and emotional ways. This was clearly not Ashley's philosophy. I definitely got the sense that Ashley's motivations were genuine and her intentions are always for speedy resolution.
I have recommended Ashley to my friends and family and will continue to do so now that my case is coming to a close. She has helped me to come to a peaceful resolution with my case and I am very grateful.

On Friday, September 19, 2014, there was a hearing for my divorce case. Ms. Butler went to court to represent me and told me I did not need to be there. The next day I received a text message from my ex-wife stating “Did your attorney not tell you about today’s court order?” Since I had not heard anything from my lawyer, I ignored these messages from my ex-wife while attempting to get clarification from Ms. Butler. Ms. Butler did not respond to calls, texts, or e-mails and I continued to receive messages from my ex-wife telling me I was ordered to give her money.
Ms. Butler's paralegal, Rose Emory, did not have any information for me and Ms. Butler did not respond to my requests for information until the following Monday, September 22nd, and only said "You owe [ex-wife] $500" no advice or instruction, or any details about court.
It took several more messages over the course of another day (25+ hours) before Ms. Butler actually called me to pass on all the information of my court date, and I was billed separately for each message sent to Ms. Butler as I tried to find out the status of my case. At that point I was in violation of a court order for over 4 days before Ms. Butler returned my calls. This was a trend in that it took 3-4 e-mails, calls, and text messages to Ms. Butler or Ms. Emory before only getting part of a question answered; therefore I needed to send more e-mails and messages for clarification. However, I was constantly being billed for calling, texting, and e-mailing Ms. Butler even when she was not answering and leaving me to continue trying to follow up to understand what was going on in my case.
Due to this, my retainer was “used up” quickly and when I pointed out to Ms. Emory that had my calls been returned and questions answered I wouldn't have sent (and therefore got billed for) most of those e-mails, she nearly hung up on me and referred me to Ms. Butler. Ms. Butler simply said she would no longer represent me if I did not pay more money and that she does not handle billing. I then spoke with the firm manager, who told me they would work out a financial compromise with me in light of Ms. Butler's behavior and the lack of agreed-upon services. Kathleen then stopped returning my calls and messages with no financial agreement being made.

Mrs. Butler was not only a great lawyer but a great person. We have had the pleasure of knowing her for three years. We went through some very difficult times and she stuck by us the whole way. She was caring, compassionate and worked VERY hard for us the whole time. She would give us options and explained everything to its fullest. She fought for us and for our children. I am proud and honored to call her my lawyer and my friend. We will continue to go to her when the need arises. We have also recommended her to family members who we just as pleases as we were. Highly recommend!!

Let me start out by stating that my divorce situation was one in which I faced a small budget and a lot of stress. During a divorce, or any legal battle for that matter, it is natural to not be able to trust anyone easily. Most people aren't hiring an attorney for fun. Putting my full faith and giving my complete trust to Ms. Ashley Butler was both the hardest and best things I have done.
During the process, I was able to email any and all questions, as well as information I found out, to Rose, Ms. Butler's Senior Paralegal, and to Ms. Butler. Ms. Butler did keep in contact with me and took care of all the "heavy" work involved in my divorce. She also was very fair in keeping me aware of my spending limit included in my retainer. Other lawyers and law firms would have gladly lead me into a court battle and squeezed every penny from my retainer plus more. Not only did Ms. Butler keep my debt from increasing, she made sure that my child was top priority during the case, and found an excellent and very impartial mediator to help keep the harshness of divorce from further escalation. Had it not been for Ms. Butler's outstanding service, kind yet direct way of redirecting my attention to the process at hand, advice, as well as her in depth knowledge of the Texas legal system, I would not be even able to stand up right now and state that I am in a position to be a good single mother.
If you are looking at needing an attorney that understands the Texas Legal System, is very calm and collected, quick to stand up for you and/or your children, and is very business like while still being a caring individual I would tell you that Ms. Ashley Butler is the attorney for you to hire. While she is compassionate, she won't back down when she knows she is right, and she won't stand down where there are areas that a client is obviously not prepared for nor understand.
Again, it is already hard to trust people. It was hard at first for me to let go and realize that Ms. Ashley Butler not only was acting on my child's behalf and mine, but she is more than an attorney. She is an advocate for the law and I am quite pleased as well as relieved that my legal matters were and are in her hands. I am grateful for the time, advice, service, and the outcome of my divorce due to Ms. Ashley Butler's assistance as my attorney.

I just wanted to take this time to Thank You for your personal attention and professionalism in handling my divorce. Ashley and her staff were amazing! If I called with questions, she or her staff would return my calls or email me back immediately. If I did not understand she would explain or go back over them until I did. I was scared to death going to court, and Ashley was so comforting. She told me not to worry and just explained some of the questions that were going to be asked. Ashley really has her client's best interest at heart. I would highly recommend her to everyone I know.

Ashley was very professional during a difficult time, it helped knowing that my lawyer was a shoulder for me to lean on and a huge suport when I needed it. She was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Because of that it made it easy to open up to her, I felt as if I knew Ashley my whole life. She made me feel at ease about my custody hearing eventhough I was very anxious at times and it was a difficult situation, I would recommend Ashley to anybody seeking a great down to earth lawyer that will make you feel welcome and confident.
