Highly Recommended
My experience with this firm was phenomenonal. Not only did they handle my case above and beyond the expectation,t hey genuinely cared about me and the case and went the extra mile every time, even when they weren't required to do so. I would highly recommend the Bates Law Firm and will be utilizing them for any future legal representation that's needed.

Your Winning with Winnie!
Winnie came highly recommended by a former client who had a highly contested divorce. I also had a very complex, highly contested case. Prior to Winnie I had meet with and spoken to around 5 other attorney's before I decided to choose her. Winnie took the time to listen to my story, asking questions along the way and providing feedback. She was able to answer all of my questions and was very straight forward with my expected outcome. I felt very comfortable with Winnie and I knew she had me and my child's best interest at heart. To me her knowledge and experience is second to none and that is what you need when your looking to win a case. Take the time and spend the money on the consult, its worth your time and money.

Customer Centeic!
I went to Winnie to get my will completed; something I had put off for years. She made the process so easy. She even thought of things I hadn't. That's what I appreciated. She anticipated my needs and exceeded my expectations. She is very down to earth, friendly and most importantly... customer centric! I even sent my friends and coworkers to her because I was confident she would do the same for them.

A long and difficult case handled very well
Winnie Bates and her team assisted me in achieving the outcome I required. She and her staff are very pleasant to work with. Winnie displays confidence in the courtroom. Her familiarity with the Williamson county court system and staff was instrumental in forming our winning strategy.

Custody
Winnie and staff are amazing! I came in with a complicated case and huge file to review. She took the time to listen to my wants needs and review everything (which was a lot!). She was great about answering any questions I had and I felt very comfortable and confident the entire time. Winnie was able to fix everything and get the exact custody orders I was hoping for!

The Best Possible
Winnie and team are simply the best. She is more than knowledgeable of the laws, and was creative with resolutions to the individual needs of my divorce case. She is professional and yet adds a personal touch to taking care of her clients. Her concern for my well being through all the proceedings was very comforting and helped me help her in making decisions for the best possible out come. I felt she genuinely cared for me and my child. The best possible advice I can pass on is ... DO what she says to do! That helped my case and my stress. Let her do her job and you, too, will have the best possible outcome. I also want to applaud Billy, Jo Ann and Dixie for all their hard work and support. I am so grateful! They are not just a law firm, but wonderful people helping their clients.

Professional and straight forward
I would recommend Winnie and her staff. She delivered what she promised and she was able to defend and protect my interests. She worked holidays to get my case settled.

Is this legal?
Winnie Bates “let me go” as a client after I questioned thousands in charges for time that simply and clearly was not spent, and time that undeniably did not need to be spent. For example I was charged for her time to send me an email requesting I reschedule a meeting that SHE missed (no call no show). To top it off I had already rescheduled that meeting two days prior. I was billed for both her time and her paralegals time simultaneously through mediation so she could openly work on other cases to the point that she wasn’t even effective in mediation. She didn’t say a single thing in 3 hours that was either relevant to the conversation or to my feelings. She did however share all her personal and professional correspondence via email, and instant message during those 3 hours because she was sharing her screen. Even after she was warned it was all coming up on my screen she continued to forget I was even in the office. She bad talked multiple in the process, shouting it across the office. It was a show to say the least. After seeing it in person it was obvious why we had to have the EXACT same meeting 3 different times, not including consultation where we addressed the same facts. It was obvious why the process took 3 times longer than it should have. It was obvious that I wasn’t going to stand beside this bunch while the fate of the most important was decided. I asked them to stop putting time into my case immediately. Once I had time to look over the charges I requested a meeting to talk about several particular discrepancies, she directly responded by dropped me as a client, no explanations. More than a month later, I get another bill from Winnie. She won’t stop making up things to bill for, and apparently forgotten who I am again, but she’s willing to write off that last bill if I remove my reviews. Well here’s another.

Dear Mr. Hubble, We are sorry that you are upset about your bill. We contacted you by telephone to try and address your concerns and the misstatements made by you online.
