5 stars HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
When I needed a lawyer for a divorce from out of state, Ilana called me back right away. She and her team are very responsive and effective. My settlement was very fair and I give Ilana all the credit!

Honest and Attentive!
In the toughest of times, when there are stress and emotions, Ilana and her team made my divorce much more bearable. They were kind, understanding, attentive and really listened to what I needed from the situation. The support for my concerns were immeasurable, not to mention at a price I could afford! Thank you for helping me through this tough time, would recommend without a doubt, to anyone looking for a smooth and painless understanding of the process. 10/10

The Most Incredible Attorney!
If you're looking for an attorney/law office who truly cares, is incredibly knowledgeable, super attentive, and takes the anxiety out of stressful situations-look no further! Ilana fights for your family like it's her own, she is passionate about her work, she's kind, professional and has a heart of gold. She was a light in a terribly stressful family situation and worked tirelessly to WIN for us. I'd recommend Ilana and her team (Katie and Candace) to anyone, I am so grateful to have found them!

Ferocious lawyer
To be frank, the legal system is incredibly re-victimizing for survivors of abuse. Ilana went above and beyond in my case. It was incredibly difficult and mentally taxing. She went for more than I thought we could, and won. She is not the obvious brash bull-dog lawyer, but calculating, intelligent and relentless. I much prefer the genuine kindness and help she gave, than faked ferocity or promises that fall short. Everyone in her office met me with compassion on horribly dark days and stood by me while I persevered throughout the case.

Child custody
Ilana is a great attorney! She is very knowledgeable, compassionate and responsive. I recommend Ilana to anyone going through a divorce! Ilana made sure I understood everything. Before hiring Ilana I shared 50/50 with my ex, Ilana was able to get me full custody! If you need a hard working attorney that know what she is doing and care give her a call asap!

Great Attorney and Child Advocate
I’ve had the experience of working with Ilana Tanner for over a year, while she worked as the Ad Litem for my family members. She’s smart, diligent, conscientious and does what’s needed for her clients. It’s never easy in custody cases as one party ends up not getting the time or custody they desire. Look for client reviews, not non clients affected by the case. Ask about Ms Tanner’s experience protecting children, ask other attorneys about her reputation, ask CASA and you’ll be extremely happy with what you hear and see with Ms Tanner. We were clients and happy to have found/worked with a brilliant attorney.

Just The Best!!!
If you want a great lawyer who will advocate for you and your children no need to look any further. She is smart, empathetic, and the best advocate to help fight for you. I have known Ilana for years and she is so beyond wonderful. She will listen to all of your concerns and fight for you. She has such a great heart and truly cares for her clients and loves what she does and has so much compassion. You could not find a better family law lawyer than Ilana.

Fantastic consultation
This is actually a review for Katie, who works with Alana as a paralegal I believe. She's who you'll talk to before speaking with Alana. I had a few conversations with Katie, at no charge, about my case and her advice was so helpful. I was very confused and scared before I talked with Katie, but she pointed me in the right direction and gave very sound legal counsel that put my anxiety at ease. I was blown away that she offered this advice even though she knew that my case probably wasn't something Alana could help with.

compassion & expertise are second to none.
Divorce is an emotional and confusing process for many and definitely for me. Illana and Katie made the whole process seamless. Their compassion and expertise are second to none. Which in turn gave me a very favorable outcome. -James

Knows the business and her competition. Gets results
I had little time to find a lawyer, and Ilana was recommended by another law firm who didn't do mediation. So glad I found her. In our initial meeting, she knew opposing council well and it showed later in the process. She also knew my previous lawyer and pegged that one pretty accurately. When all was finished, she took out her notes from our initial meeting that listed all the items I stated I had hoped to get, and she checked off each one. Done. Her office staff is pleasant to deal with, as is Ilana herself. But she is definitely no pushover.

winning!
Wow what an amazing attorney! I have full custody of my children, happily single, and no legal issues to worry about. Ms. Tanner even reminded the judge of information leading to my family matters being resolved. She made it a comfortable and easy process. Choose her. Now.

Ms. Tanner was very professional.
I can honestly say that Ms. Tanner was so professional and empathetic to my situation. She was prompt, assertive and always reassured me that I wasn't alone. She gave me confidence when I was unsure of myself. She made herself available when necessary and always put my needs as a client first. She always made sure I understood what was being told to me and took her time to explain. She updated me about my case without being asked. She was also my voice, with no hesitation, when I was being steered wrong. She is an amazing, magnificent human being. Her title is well earned and deserved. Highly recommend by me!

So Awesome
My child was adopted by my husband and Ilana handled the whole process with professionalism, charisma, charm, efficiency, and comedy. That's right. All of those things. She made us laugh. She charmed us. Yet, she was very professional and got the job done in record time with little to no hassle. I highly recommend her services to anyone who needs a good lawyer on their side. She made our happy little family whole.

Highly recommended: Ilana Tanner
Tanner came highly recommended by the president of the Travis County Women’s Lawyer Association. With a challenging situation Ilana took on my case in the middle of proceedings and was skillfully agile in her ability to assess the status and move forward quickly. There is no exaggeration in how quick Tanner began to work. Within a month of placing her as lead council on my case I was authentically represented and awarded rights that were legally mine. This was the beginning of a monthly cycle of progress being made on my case until the matter was majorly resolved. I highly recommend Tanner for matters that require a knowledgeable professional who is quick on their feet. Last I would like to highlight the skill of active listening found in Tanner and her team at The Ilana R. Tanner Law Firm. Not only did I feel heard by her team as they worked on the many details of my case, other professionals involved felt heard as well. The state, medical and family members involved in my case all complemented Tanner in how she “let them speak” when interacting and responded in kind. I have found it is common to have issues with counsel who do all the talking and forget details that are major to the represented but minor to the representatives and judges. Tanner breaks the mold in this area. She will hear you, your family and the professionals working on your behalf. She will answer calls and formulate needed responses in a timely manner. For this last reason, I again, highly recommend her for all legal services and support her efforts professionally whatever they may be. Ilana Tanner is an attorney in Austin who reflects well upon the people, the court and the judges of this city.

Best Lawyer around!!!
Before I met Ilana I went lawyer to lawyer dropping out money right and left to come out with the same conclusion that I have no rights to my kids. I met Ilana threw a good friend that told me to tag along with him to a meeting he had with her. Once I met Ilana I decided to give it one last go and thank god I did my life has completely been turned around and I Am a daddy with full custody thanks to her. I owe her my life.

The help you need when you need it
Ilana and her wonderful team helped me through one of the most difficult and scary moments of my life. Her confidence, knowledge, and just the right amount of humor helped get me through. Ilana is professional, knowledgeable and efficient. Her team was available for questions and helped to guide me through our options and the process. Her office is welcoming, comfortable, and easy to access, and it is only a block or two from the courthouse (we all walked to the courthouse together on the day of my hearing). Parking is readily available at the office. As a father who is ready and willing to fight to the end for my kids, Ilana has been a great partner to help me when I needed it. I hope that I don't find myself needing her services again, but if I do, I know where to call.
