Review Eric Willie
  • Winning!

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Margaret

    I contacted Eric Willie when needing an attorney for my son's child custody case. This was after contacting a few other guys where I was told that a man has very little chance of winning custody of his children (two little girls) particularly in Texas. Losing was not an option and Eric did not even suggest that. My son's case started out small and became very complicated very quickly and throughout all of it, Eric was honest, thorough and meticulous. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney with a winning, can do attitude. Eric Willie delivers!

    Having used Eric to handle my divorce back in 2013 I felt 100% confident for him to handle custody issues that came up recently. I have now been awarded full custody and granted permission by Travis Co. To take the kids and relocate to MI. Things with the kids and I haven't been better! Thank you Eric!!

  • More than a divorce lawyer!

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Guy

    About fifteen years ago, my companion and I went to Eric Willie for help in drawing up our wills. He came highly recommended by friends whom we trusted and we could not have been more pleased with the result. Mr. Willie was obviously very experienced in family law and took plenty of time to get to know us and our needs and concerns. His staff were professional and efficient as well as being friendly and resourceful. And his fee was extremely reasonable.

    When it became possible for us to marry last year, my companion and I returned to Eric, now in an even more convenient office very near our home in South Austin, for advice on updating our wills. Once again, we were very, very satisfied. We will continue to use Eric Willie for any and all of our legal needs.

    Eric Willie is much more than a wonderful divorce lawyer!

  • Knows how to get a case done

    Eric was my second attorney. My first attorney was not doing his job and my case had stalled. In comes Eric Willie. He told me his plan to get the case up and running again. He told me we could go to a judge and have the judge set deadlines. He did just what he said. Despite protests from my husband, who did not want to get divorced, the judge agreed with Mr. Willie and set the proposed deadlines. Two months later this case that had been going on for
    nearly two years, was over. My husband was forced to settle. The outcome was great. Even better than what I expected. Thanks to Eric Willie and his staff.

  • I owe you the world.

    Anonymous review posted on

    I hired Eric after my wife left with our three children. She told me I would never get custody and would be lucky to see them on the weeknd. My kids are my life and I was scared to death. Eric told me that my wife was alienating the children and we would be successful in court. I put all my trust in him. On the day of court I was nervous but Eric assured me we would be ok. He did a fantastic job in court and I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer or more trustworthy person. The judge ruled for us and I was so happy to have my life back. I owe the world to Mr. Willie.

  • Eric knows the The Travis County court system inside and out

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Brian

    I was thoroughly impressed with Eric's knowledge of what actually happens inside a court room in Travis County. He knew which judges to go to for certain things and which judges not to go to. When you need a lawyer who actually has tried a bunch of cases before the court, Eric is the guy to hire. He is an excellent trial attorney and I would recommend him to anyone.

  • He Put My Trust Back In Lawyers

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Carrie

    I was referred to Eric by two different friends who had used him during their divorce. My husband had threatened me over and over that if I left him he would take everything away from me including my kids. From the
    moment I met Eric, he put me at ease. He wanted to know what I wanted, what scared me about the process and what I needed from him to feel at ease.
    He told me my husband was being a bully and was trying to control me. Eric gave me a voice and stood up for me. In the end my husband was just hot air. His threats did not work once we fought back.
    Eric was brilliant in the courtroom. He really knew what he was doing. I trusted him and he did everything he said he would do. When you are looking for someone you can confide in, someone that knows the system and how to win, Eric is the person to go to. I can't thank him enough.

  • Such a disappointment!

    1.0 star

    Anonymous review posted on

    Eric Willie and his staff are nice, courteous, and made me feel everything would be ok in my case. It was a slam dunk and didn't seem like much work needed to be done. My case was for hundreds of thousands of $ of inheritance that was stolen by relatives in my youth. There were also land royalties involved.

    Mr. Willie was not aggressive enough at all. He showed up so late to court that I had to represent myself in front of the entire court, I was berated by the judge in front of the defendants. My witnesses drove several hours to be there and could not even be called because I had no representation. After everything was done, Mr. Willie showed up in his fancy corvette.

    In the end I got less than $10k of what should have been $300k. I didn't get any of the land my money paid for as a child and none of the assets. I did not receive any sentimental items which Eric assured me would happen.

    In the end, Eric may be good as long as a fight is not required and the work doesn't get very difficult. If your case needs confrontation or an attorney with balls, then I cannot recommend Eric Willie as an attorney. If you are looking to pay for a guy that is nice, cool, and maybe a happy hour friend, then Eric Willie is perfect for you.

  • Got this Father FULL Custody!

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Brice

    Eric was exactly what I needed to achieve what felt impossible. He is confident, reassuring, and knowledgeable. He knew exactly what we needed to do to get custody of my son. It was a very long and trying battle but the entire time I was kept well informed and assured we were doing everything right. There were no false promises and he told me up front that this would be a difficult battle but, WE DID IT!! Not only did I get custody but we actually got everything and MORE we asked for!!
    I would whole heartedly recommend Eric to anyone who needs the best attorney to represent them and their family’s interests.

    An eternally grateful father,
    Brice

    Mr. Willie really smoothed out issues I thought would get sticky. Never made me feel that there was anything he couldn't handle. His accuracy with the timeline for my divorce was almost impeccable. I highly recommend him!
