Took the time to handle my case efficiently!
I recently got into some trouble when I moved here, hired mr featherson and he helped me through a rough and difficult case and overall got the case dismissed which is more then I could ever ask for, so I hope this review can find someone and maybe he can help them like he helped me, would ten out of ten recommend him.

VERDICT: NOT GUILTY
To say Mr. Featherston's representation was PHENOMENAL would be an injustice to his true personal and professional ethic because he is THE ATTORNEY you want on your side. Nothing short of COMPELLING in and out of the courtroom, I was fortunate and lucky enough to see Mr. Featherston handle my case and I was just blown away by how DETAILED and ATTENTIVE his approach to my legal situation was. I mean he just took the case from all angles and had an answer for any possibility that came our way. This case would change my life and perspective toward how real the world can get but Mr. Featherston & his legal counsel shielded me from what could have been a very different outcome. I am completely in awe of Robert Featherston as an attorney and as a great man. I wish him continued success in what is obviously a very remarkable and accomplished career. My best, Nathaniel Tristan.

SUPER LAWYER - SAVED MY LIFE!!!
He represented me on a Aggravated Assault with Deadly Weapon Case. He blew away the State's case with his cross examination and use of Power Point. He looked way more professional than the prosecutors and got me a NOT GUILTY!

Great guy
False federal crime accusations were made against me at my place of work. Mr Featherston handled the matter expertly making it just go away. He did a lot to relieve the anxiety and stress of the situation. I would hire him again without question.

Criminal Defense DWI
I was accused of driving while intoxicated in Bexar County Texas. Mr. Featherston was very aggressive with my case. He knew everything their was to know about DWI and the driver license hearing. If I am ever accused of DWI again I will use only him!
