    Rebecca Carrillo dedicates her law practice to family law which includes divorces, adoptions, custody, child support, grandparent access cases, restraining orders, and protective orders.

Board Certified Family Law Attorney Rebecca J. Carrillo always wanted to be a lawyer.  In school, she never let anyone be bullied and never let anyone sit alone in the cafeteria. From an early age, she had the idea that she could help and defend people. Family law delves into that cornerstone of her personality as there is nothing more personal than protecting someone’s family, assets, and estate. Her practice encourages honesty to and from the client. Unlike other firms, she does not prioritize her business over her clients’ individual needs. She is honest with clients about potential legal costs, as well as the reality of their desired outcome and what the implications are for each course of action. Once you are a client, your attorney’s fees are used efficiently to bring resolution to your case. Attorney Carrillo’s goal is to provide clients outstanding service for a reasonable price commensurate with the intensity of each case.

Working with Carrillo Attorneys made my case pleasant with Savannah,Rose and of course my cheerleader “Bruno”, being there for me in times of advice and comfort. There expertise was very important to know in my case. If needing a lawyer in the future it would be Carrillo Law Firm !! Thank you a million times for your support. Kimberly Los Angeles,Ca.

Hire them, you won't regret it!
I hired them for an uncontested divorce. Even though this is a "simpler" process, getting a divorce is still stressful. I didn't think twice about going with them after the initial consultation with Andrea. She was professional, respectful, patient, competent and made the process go very smoothly since day one.

Divorce/Child Support
After searching for many lawyers to start my Divorce case and Child Support, I came across Rebecca Carrillo’s law firm back in September 2018. Reviewing her background and success I knew I had found the right firm. I am very please and happy with my results along with her respectable team including Savannah Garcia. Rebecca, was there to do her job when needed and get out. She doesn’t waste anyone’s time! The office provide me with packets on what to expect, review and study. Homework was assigned and it was pretty easy since I was an organized person already. I came out with a huge win for my daughter and my home along with certain assets. Most definitely highly recommend for her outstanding work and her wonderful team.

Professional
I hired Rebecca’s firm September 2017. It has taken nine months of dedicated law work to resolve my case with complete victory. Rebecca and Savannah did a great job communicating researching case law writing the motions, responses etc and working with me during rduring reviews prior to filing and making suggested changes or modifications suggested by me. Great job. I highly recommend!

Excellent attorney!!!
The thing I was most concerned about before starting my divorce was flexibility (I had no time between school and work) and peace of mind. I wanted to feel assured that everything was being done the right way. Rebbeca and her team gave me that peace of mind and flexibility, so I only had to worry about the emotional part. I am completely satisfied with the help that I was provided.

Best in Texas!
Rebecca and her team could not have performed better during my divorce proceedings. Until I partnered with her team, I was alone and faced difficult odds in a very unreasonable situation. As I am in the military and out of state, they were patient, methodical, and deliberate throughout the process, all the while being equally compassionate, objective, and understanding of my situation. Without reservation, I highly recommend her and her team and would give 11 out of 10 stars if I could!

Steady and Strategic
Rebecca is a great attorney! She is definitely a “no non-sense” professional that understands the legal process and the complex issues that can arise. She has stood by my side for almost 2 years as my lawyer. She cares and knows how to stay ahead of the battles that can often develop in these situations. She is a resourceful attorney that knows how to keep the train from derailing while maintaining legal balance and doing what is just in the situation.

Knowledgeable and Honest
Rebecca was honest and upfront with all the possible outcomes of my case. She advised and informed me every step of the way with regards to my case and showed confidence in her work which I truly appreciated. I was extremely happy with the outcome and have definitely referred multiple people to her.

Knowledgeable, professional and caring
I have been a client of Ms. Carrillo for a few months now. She and her staff are very knowledgeable of the law and I feel they care about me and the outcome of my case. She returns phone calls and emails in a timely manner. She also prepares in advance for all legal proceedings. Ms. Carrillo knows the law and is a "straight shooter" when explaining the possible legal outcomes of my case. I highly recommend Ms. Carrillo and her staff.

Experienced, knowledgeable and Professional
During the initial consult Mrs. Carrillo was very clear as to the possible outcomes of my divorce based specifically on her assessment of my situation. During the case I learned to trust her advice and with the assistance of Savannah and Rose, her group did an incredible job in preparing for my case. The results were to my satisfaction and again I appreciate the efforts and professionalism they undertook on my behalf.

Excellent attorney for adoption matters
Attorney Rebecca Carrillo reviewed my adult adoption petition and prepared necessary items to complete the petition correctly. The work was done a very reasonable time and the adoption was put through the court and was decreed. I found everyone in the office to be very knowledgeable and profoundly professional.

Highly recommended, without going into detail they were able to save me alot of what I had worked most of my life for, I can't say enough good things about this firm, A+

Excellent lawyer, Excellent staff,
Ms. Carrillo made me feel so confident and eased and worries I had about my adoption. She helped us to understand the adopting process and lead us through each part of the case. Any question were answered within 24 hours and the case was closed quickly. I truly am great full to the office for helping to complete my family.

Received worth of payment in her knowledge and services! Divorce.
I had misunderstood the free consult offered and found it meant an office consultation, not via phone. Once I scheduled and went in I found Mrs. Carrillo very professional, attentive and sympathetic to my situation. She was the 3rd attorney I had consulted with and felt she would have my best interest and consideration. Although I did not receive a return call to EACH of my messages, (I tend to be a bit of a worry wart) I remembered she does have several other clients with same situations and after all, I entrusted her with my case. The trust of her experience and knowledge was merited. She contacted me with pertinent information as she received it and completed my divorce much sooner than we had anticipated. I was very happy with all the results. She never forgot what a traumatic experience this can be for us and all was resolved efficiently. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Excellent Attorney!!
Mrs. Carrillo was very responsive and prepared for my case. She only had a few days notification to prepare, and I (as well as my Ex husband) were very impressed with her preparedness and professionalism. She was very attentive and responsive. I would highly recommend her to anyone going through a difficult divorce. I did my research before before hiring her, and I was not disappointed!

EXCEPTIONAL ATTORNEY!!!!
I retained Rebecca in 2012 to handle my divorce. I intereviewed several attorneys and found that Rebecca would be the best fit for me. She is extremely professional, knowledgable, understanding, and compassionate. She handled my case by displaying the facts with great professionalism and class. Since my divorce being finalized, I retained her again for the pending custody battle to which she is working very hard on mine and my sons behalf. I wouldn't ever look to another attorney as I feel that Rebecca Carrillo is an exceptional attorney in family law. You would be foolish to look elsewhere for representation!

Definitely Recommend!!
Filing for divorce was an extremely stressful, overwhelming, and emotionally draining situation. Initially I was unsure of how to even begin the process and even more reluctant to seek legal help. Filing for a divorce in Bexar County without legal representation can be a long, drawn out nightmare and the county website provided zero guidance/help. I resorted to searching online for a divorce attorney and I was lucky enough to come across Rebecca Carrillo’s website. From the moment I walked into her office, Mrs. Carrillo put all my anxiety to rest and made finalizing my divorce simple. I cannot express the relief I felt to have her take care of my divorce. She is honest, approachable, and extremely helpful. Working with her completely removed the stress of the divorce process. Unlike many other attorneys, it is clear Mrs. Carrillo’s care and concern for her clients takes top priority. I definitely recommend her!
