I hired Mr. Kay to represent me in my divorce proceeding. I was referred to him by my legal insurance plan representative. I was immediately suspicious of him. He did not initially want to meet in person but rather wanted me to hire him over the phone sight unseen. Once I got to his office, which was old and run-down, I understood why. He appeared disheveled. He was condescending to speak with. He would interrupt me when I tried to answer his questions. But he stated he could get results in my case far faster than any of the other attorneys I spoke with and was reasonably priced so I decided to gamble on him. Boy, was I in for a let down. Instead of settling my case promptly, he took my retainer and only occasionally contacted me to ask for more documents even though my case has been ongoing for almost a year now and he had access to months worth of documentation. He claimed to be a Georgetown lawyer but actually works on the other side of Austin and only occasionally makes his way to Georgetown. I believe he never had any intention of resolving my case in a timely manner and was instead dragging things out for personal financial gain. When I called him out for his lack of visible progress in my case, he got offended and quit my case.

We reached out to this lawyer in the morning and his secretary requested 1 document from us that was a temporary order. The issue was regarding a custody matter and it was an emergency as the primary parent was admitted to the mental hospital and we needed emergency protective orders and revocation of a temporary order. We requested to meet with the lawyer right away and was advised he will be available in 30 minutes, the office was 20 miles away so we were on our way. When we got there his secretary scolded us because she meant available for a call and not to meet in person, we advised her that it is ok and we can talk to him in the car. He called and said that he is reviewing one document and will call back. We called him right back and told him that he does not have all the paperwork and does not know what we needed. I was with my uncle and since he speaks English as a second language, I was assisting. Alfred kept on saying "I only speak to one person" he kept on cutting my uncle off. My uncle told him "my ex", Alfred cut him off and said "sir, you are not divorced!", my uncle stated that he was divorced, Alfred cut him off again and said "YOU ARE NOT MARRIED, I DO NOT HAVE THE FINAL DIVORCE DECREE". We told him that is why we want to tell you what the issue is, he cut us off again. He would not listen to the issue and could not care less about the situation. I do not recommend this person to anyone. He wasted a whole day of our time and did not even assist. His attitude was one that did not want to help and one that did not care for the 5 and 11 year old that were in danger. Stay away.

I hired Mr. Kay to work on three separate law suits filed against me for the student loans of my deceased husband. Mr. Kay was helpful and stated realistic expectations. He was very patient with all my inquiries and professional and kind through all our communications.
Mr. Kay won all three cases! I am so grateful to have the burden of those hefty lawsuits lifted.

Mr. Kay is courteous, professional, very sincere and knowledgeable. He resolved my case in a quick and efficient manner and was very reasonable as far as rates and billing. This Eviction lawsuit has been a dark cloud hanging over me for over a year, not knowing when this suit was even ended. He is quick to respond to my case and explained everything in detail. I was very impressed with his overall performance.
I would definitely recommend him to others and definitely use him again if I ever need to.

Mr. Kay helped me with issues in my dad's estate in approximately 2002 in North Texas. He was thorough, helpful, knowledgeable, and diligent in his efforts. He was also fair.

I met Alfred through my Texas Legal Protection plan after having picked the wrong attorney for my case when my ex-husband was keeping my children unless I went back to him. Although it was too late to change counsel I used Alfred to advise me on the work my present attorney was doing in my case after dropping the first attorney. I wish Alfred was my first attorney on my case. I've never met an attorney that was as companionate and honest as him. He always was upfront with me and gave me an honest answer. He doesn't feed off of your emotions as many attorneys’ do during a divorce to rack up fees or drag out a case. He once met me at a downtown to attend a CLE class with me to learn more about my ex-husband's injuries he sustained in Iraq. He always found the time to return my calls and answer any of my questions. When my attorney didn't finish my case properly he drew up the paperwork to conclude my case. He is very knowledgeable in family law, data discovery, and debt.

Alfred Kay is a capable and compassionate attorney of the first order. In the mid-90's, he assisted my aunt with a serious tax situation involving her house. She is divorced and depends almost exclusively on Social Security benefits. In response to the ad valorem tax bill issued to her by the Dallas Central Appraisal District , which she had no means to pay, he filed a property tax deferral on her behalf, and she has not had to pay any property taxes since then, as she has maintained the house as her homestead and intends to do so until her death.
I have hired Mr. Kay on two occasions to represent me personally, each of which involved a most difficult matter, both personally and financially. One was as my counsel in my divorce from my first wife in 1987; the other time was to represent my second wife and me in a bankruptcy proceeding, in 2001-2002. His sage advice and his understanding approach made both situations much more endurable.

My sister suffers from HD- Huntington Disease (which is a neurological disease that effects the rational division of the brain). Due to her disability, we needed someone with not just experience, but with compassion and an understanding of her limitations. Her divorce was unique due to the medical issues, and Alfred made sure she received additional TLC when she called. He was quick to respond back and did additional research on disability laws that benefited her greatly in the end. For as hard as the divorce was on the family, knowing he was protecting my sister was a relief for all of us.

I was refered by a friend, she is a friend for life now. Mr. Kay is always professional, kept me informed at all times. He was supportive, and forceful when needed. He would not let me give up. He knows what he is doing, was always looking out for my best interest. I never had to see my now ex the entire process, which made it so much easier. He was always a phone call away. At first it seemed like a small case, but as he dug in he found more, much more. I would not have gotten the settlement I received with any other lawyer I am sure. Mr Kay was like a dog with a bone. He never let go. He worked long and hard on my case. I can not say enough wonderful things about this man. He is not just a outstanding lawyer, but a good honest person too. When I found out about this website I could not wait to log on and put my comments. If you use this man you will not be sorry. Great lawyer. I thank God every day for bringing Mr Kay into my life. It made a sad time in my life more bearable. Thx u
