Excellent attorney, Knowledgeable on Indian marriage and culture
Greg is an exceptional family law attorney with 30+ years of experience who demonstrated exceptional care, quick response, and dedication throughout my complicated case. His knowledge and experience were invaluable; he always made me feel like I had a strong advocate. My case involved wastage claims, community reimbursement, multiple mediations, expert financial rebuttal, and a three-day trial. Greg is extremely knowledgeable about family law and provided invaluable guidance and advice throughout the process, explaining complex legal concepts in an easy-to-understand manner. He listened and understood my unique situation and was compassionate and empathetic. His attention to detail and thoroughness was impressive, and I always felt like my case was in the best possible hands. He had a good sense of what fair outcomes would be and predicted them, allowing me to evaluate risks. He did not back down and secured me a fair judgment; He also secured my attorney's fees (a BIG WIN) back from my spouse for delaying the case. His team was exceptionally strong with responses, discovery, maintaining over 5000 documents, and presenting them effectively to the judge. I highly recommend Greg to anyone who needs a family law attorney, and he will get you the justice you think you deserve. He is a skilled and experienced attorney who will fight tirelessly to protect your rights and interests.

Wholehearted approval
Greg and his staff made my divorce efficient and painless. I relied on his judgment because it is clear that he is familiar with the various options at each stage, and the pros and cons of each. Although my case was simple, with no children and no disputed assets, he was no less devoted to resolving my matter. Greg returned my calls and emails promptly every time, and his rates are very reasonable. I recommend Greg Hitt with absolutely no reservation.

Great Guy
Greg really advocated for us during a very stressful time. He was available and spent whatever time we needed to help us. He is genuine and caring which isn’t always easy to find these days. Don’t hesitate to hire him.

Divorce Attorney
Greg and his staff went above and beyond to get me everything I was asking for and things I never expected. They were great at bringing to my attention things that I would have missed due to the emotional stress going through a divorce can put on someone. He and his staff were always genially concerned for not just my case but me as a person. I am forever grateful to Greg and his entire staff for taking such great care of me and giving my new reality a bright start.

Excellent Family-law lawyer
Greg is a very insightful and competent family-law lawyer. Divorce is probably the most stressful process in the life, especially for a high-conflict case. You may never really know someone until you went through the process. Greg was an excellent listener and extracted the most useful information to form a great strategy for the case. He has a great experience and led me to go through the very complicated legal process. He is also very professional to let know me the possible outcomes strictly based on Texas Family Code without misleading you by either over-promising or being too conservative. But when a contested divorce is not avoidable, he is really a master in the court hearings to protect your right. Greg is also a very knowledgeable and hard-work lawyer. He and his assistant reply very quickly if you have any questions. If anyone ever asked me to refer a family-law lawyer, I will highly recommend Greg for his excellent service.

Family Law
Mr. Hitt was hired to draft documents pertaining to family matters and interact with a third party attorney. In the course of providing ample advice he remained efficient with his time in our interactions and those with the other legal counsel. Should I have another family law issue I would hire him again.

Gregory Hitt represented me for my divorce.
Gregory Hitt handled my divorce a little over 10 years ago. It went smoothly and I ended up with the house for well under its market value. I would not hesitate to recommend Greg to anyone in need of his services.

Stepchild Adoption
Mr. Hitt is truly a professional! I am more than satisfied with the way he and his staff handled my stepchild adoption. Mr. Hitt was extremely thorough and was always easy to reach by email and phone. If he was in court his Legal Assistant was always available to answer calls and answer questions. I'd highly recommend Greg Hitt; he's kind, straightforward and courteous.

Gregory Hitt aka the Hitt-Man!!
I was referred to Mr. Hitt's office for divorce proceedings. His office is calm and affable and his staff is personable and professional. He agreed to meet me for consultation and he really used his experience to guide me in through a very difficult time. His approach to the issues in my case was strong and kind. He allowed my personal ethics to be represented without allowing advantages to be taken by the other party. I recommend his services and his office to anyone who needs an honest and forthright attorney. He was professional, kind, and never negotiated from a position of weakness. He watched over my interests and the interests of my children as if they were his own. I call him my Divorce Hitt-Man!

Response from Gregory Hitt August 7, 2015
Thank you for the kind words!

Ethical and Comprehensive
Greg was my counsel in 2009 in what started out as a contentious divorce with my ex-wife. He was able to guide both parties into a fair and equitable settlement. Greg was tasked to write the divorce decree which turned out to be comprehensive, concise, and air tight document which still is referred to this day to settle disputes. He is highly recommended and I would not hesitate to call Greg again in the future if civil issues may arise.

Great Guy and Great Lawyer...
I was referred to Mr. Greg Hitt May 2014 as I was served divorce papers after an 18 year marriage. I was very hesitant and afraid coming to Greg's office for the first time, but he immediately made me comfortable and assured me he will take care of me in my situation. Greg was very thorough with his work and timelines. Always called me to keep me updated on the proceedings and was always giving me helpful advice in a divorce situation. Greg never pulled punches and was honest and upfront with me with no hidden surprises. I ended up in mediation instead of court appearances. Greg was very persistent with the mediator and opposing council and I believe I did very well in the divorce. There are no winners in a divorce but I feel strongly that if I did not have Greg in my corner I would have been screwed financially!! I have recommended Greg to a couple of coworkers and the one is with Greg now has already thanked me for recommending Greg for his services. If you are looking or debating I recommend you make the call and reach out to Greg Hitt. He is a good, well educated attorney and also he is human and is a good guy to know. Thanks for everything Greg!! chad

Patient and Honest
Greg was always honest and very patient as I went through all the ups and downs of my divorce. He always explained the short term and long term affects of the decisions I was making; things I didn't know to think about! He protected my interests very well and I highly recommend Greg Hitt.
Posted by Rick | July 31, 2015
Highly Recommended, hopefully I won't need him again but if I do I know where to go, worth every penny!
Greg helped to get my divorce and custody situation under control. I got everything I was asking for and was able to get my children out of a very bad situation, it wouldn't have been possible without him. Thanks for everything!

I recommend this attorney
Practical and reasonable in his advice to me and dealings with opposing counsel, and we were able to conclude this otherwise unpleasant matter efficiently and without hostility. I highly recommend Greg Hitt for family-related services.

I would not use Gregg again
I believe Gregg is a good lawyer, but pressed for settlement and did not handle the other attorney aggressiveness well. My case started as a child custody case, but changed to just a child support modification. I spent over 20k with him to end up settling for a deal paying much more than standard support based on Gregg's recommendation. I overspend with Gregg reviewing information multiple times with Gregg, his paralegal, and for the paralegal to reorganize all of the information provided in the same format. If you are looking for an affordable, "hard" lawyer Gregg is not you guy. He would be a good mediator.
