Best lawyer in SA!
Ms. Kriebel represented me during my divorce. I found her to be a phenomenal attorney who was able to convey the complexity of the law in a manner that is easily understood to me. She is aggressive, intelligent, extremely efficient, and kept me well informed. I recommend her highly and without reservation.

A One Plus, Jacqueline Kriebel
Jacqueline Kriebel came highly recommended to me when I needed an attorney for my son who was facing juvenile assault charges. From our first meeting, I immediately felt at ease. Jacqueline told me to place my worries and concerns with her. The DA was presenting the maximum imposed punishment of placement outside of the home even though this was my son's first case. Due to Jacqueline's intelligence, professional manner, and bulldog-like mentality, the judge agreed and ordered according to Jacqueline's proposal. Jacqueline personally fought for the welfare and best interest of my son. Today my son is happy and doing well. Words will never be enough to express my gratitude toward Jacqueline. Without her, my son would undoubtedly have been unjustly placed in a facility outside of my home. No words can never describe my gratitude for her time, dedication and tenacious attitude on my son's behalf.

CPS Investigation
My sister and I engaged Jacqueline in January to represent us in a CPS investigation after my 6 year old niece was placed under a 30-day safety plan while my sister underwent alcohol detox and therapy. This was our first interaction with CPS. We used employer-provided services rather than the onerous services demanded by CPS. CPS threatened numerous times to move my niece into foster care. They also threatened a legal motion to participate in their services. They even claimed that they didn't have to talk to a legal representative. We would never have been able to navigate this process without Jacqueline, who is an expert not only in the law, but in the ways that CPS will try to manipulate and threaten. Jacqueline made the case that CPS services and involvement were not needed beyond the 30 days. My niece returned home after 30 days, and as of 3 months later, CPS has taken no further action. Jacqueline will fight for you and execute a plan with the highest probability of success. She will navigate the maze of CPS that you can’t see. We are completely satisfied and highly recommend Jacqueline.

Our grandson is now safe and protected
We hired Jacqueline Kriebel to represent us concerning our grandson after CPS became involved. She was understanding and sympathetic to our situation and had our case underway immediately. We were relieved to be granted sole managing conservatorship. We feel that Jacqueline brought us through a very stressful time in our lives and our grandson is now safe and protected. We’ll certainly be retaining Kriebel Law in the future.

Highly Recommend Jackie - Great Lawyer
Jackie Kriebel was the attorney I wish I would have hired for my divorce. I found myself in a custody dispute with my ex-wife 3 years after our divorce and was recommended Jackie by a friend. I wanted a lawyer that would fight for my son, shoot me straight with her opinion, had experience in custody battles as well as knowledge of the local courts/judges. I got all of those things. She was thorough, knew what was possible and what wasn't, and was candid and open with her assessments. Regardless of the result, which turned out well, I was confident that all that could be done was being done. She built a personal connection which helped to make the situation easier to deal with. I have recommended her to close friends in similar situations and if I find myself in need of her services again, she will be my first call. I highly recommend her.

Top Notch Attorney
Jacqueline is a professional in all manners. She put me at ease during the entire divorce proceedings and was very knowledgeable on the matter. She far exceeded my expectations. She worked to protect myself and my daughter, which was of the upmost importance to me. I highly recommend her for your legal matters.

Very Easy Process
Jacqueline made the whole process easy to get through and navigate. She did everything I needed in a timely manner to get my custody case settled. I am not usually comfortable with lawyers, but Jacqueline made it unintimidating and smooth. I got exactly what my child needed as far as security & care.

An attorney who actually cares
I like to tell my friends Jacqueline Kriebel was my "Erin Brokovich". She represented me in my divorce. While my husband picked a high dollar firm out of Austin, I didn't want to get lost in the mix and receive minimal attention at a large firm. So I did my research and found Jacqueline Kriebel, because I wanted an attorney who would care about my case and make me a priority. Not only did she deliver on this expectation by being consistently available, but she navigated my rather complex, and sometimes bizarre, divorce case with skill, passion, and compassion. When my husband passed away in the middle of the divorce, she was rock solid and stepped in, seamlessly transitioning her role to handle all the details of probate court for me. If you're looking for an experienced attorney who actually cares about you and your case, she's the one to hire. You can trust her to tell you like it is (not what you want to hear) and to keep your case on track using her years of legal experience and wisdom.

Beyond grateful to this attorney!
I was referred to Jacqueline Kriebel by someone who was on the opposing side of a custody and child support case years ago. This person was so impressed with Ms. Kriebel that they actually refer her to anyone who needs a family attorney now! At my first consultation with her I knew without a doubt that I wanted Ms. Kriebel on my side! She is on top of things without question and I was never once left wondering about the status of my case. When looking for an attorney one of the biggest worries is that the attorney will take your money and drag their feet or that they won't really fight for you. I did not have to worry about this at all with her! She is extremely well prepared, timely in answering calls and texts, real and honest about expectations and fast moving. She was able to have my case done in less than 7 weeks! She also won't make you feel judge or embarrassed about whatever your situation is. She is nothing short of a blessing and a life saver! I'm extremely thankful for her and what she got done for me. I will refer her to anyone who needs help!

Reliable and Caring
Ms. Kriebel may be depended upon to represent her client for their best interests. She took great initiative in my divorce case to expedite the process by submitting proposals in a timely manner. Her concern for me and my children’s well being was reflected through her superb guidance throughout my case. She has made recommendations for child care and counseling that have proven beneficial.

Jackie got results
Ms. Kriebel stepped into my custody case after I’d hired two previous lawyers, who both made detrimental errors. Both were played by an unethical opposing counsel. Jackie did not allow the opposing counsel to play games, did not try to nickel and dime me to death, and got results.

Exceptional Attorney (hired to prepare will)
Ms. Kriebel was exceptional in helping me prepare my Last Will & Testament, and to help ensure my loved ones are taken care of in the manner that is best for me. I appreciate all of the help and advice she gave me during this process. Plus the process was done within minutes!! I feel comfortable knowing this is now completed.

Grateful for her help
I hired Jacqueline Kriebel to help me with a protective order that was applied against me. We only had two days to prepare and I was nervous that wasn’t enough time. I found her to be very knowledgeable and she was very persistent when arguing my case. In the end the judge ruled in my favor and I was elated. She was able to get the job done In a short period of time. Thank you!

Very Knowledgeable Lawyer
We spoke with Ms Kreibel regarding our situation and asked her opinion. Her questions were direct and to the point. Constantly seeking to derive how best to help us. She was very knowledgeable, helpful and to the point. She spoke to us honestly and straightforward. After speaking to us for an hour we were quite comfortable she would be a good fit for us. Ended our communication and asked how much we owed her. She was obviously more interested in helping us with a solution than collecting a fee. We were very impressed!
