Trusted Family Advocate
I hired Aaron Culp to represent me in an incredibly complicated divorce and child custody case. He was kind while being honest, and professional while being caring. He always respected my opinion, but guided me to see the bigger picture. He has such an incredible knowledge base and rather than talking down to me because of it, he graciously taught me so much about family law. His expertise about family law, the court system, and what legal solutions would be best for my family drove him to fight for my case in an unprecedented way. I had every confidence in his ability to take on my complex case. But he didn’t just add it to his caseload, he listened to every recording, read every screenshot, and answered every phone call with every minute question that I had. That was by far, the most difficult period of my life and I don’t know if I could have kept going if he wasn’t there through it all. I had the privilege of being able to work with both Aaron and his partner, John Hennan. I don’t know many people who actually enjoyed meeting with their lawyers, but I legitimately did. They consulted with each other consistently and thoroughly and always kept me in the loop. They are respectful, communicative, and powerhouses in the courtroom. I genuinely respect them as utmost professionals. I have already recommended them to a close friend and they will absolutely be the first people I call if the need ever arises again. I feel blessed to have had the honor of working with attorneys of their caliber and I will forever be grateful.

Brilliant and unparalleled!
I have used several lawyers and grew up with a few as well but when I needed a family law attorney, I called Aaron Culp. I was treated with the utmost respect by both he and his staff during every interaction. I felt completely at ease while outlining my case as my needs and requests were met. Aaron is diligent and works tirelessly as he seems to know every facet of his field. He is as kind and understanding with his clients as he is tenacious and fierce in the courtroom. He does not mince words and make no mistake; he will redirect you when you are off track in a very blunt and direct manner. He answered my every question and concern in such a way that I felt completely confident each time we were called to stand before the judge. I definitely would not want to be on the opposing council with Mr. Culp on the other side! I have recommended Mr. Aaron Culp to others I have known to be in need and will certainly continue to do so. Thank you, Aaron, for all you have done and continue to do for me and my family!

Great lawyer to have in your corner
Aaron and John are well experienced lawyers. They took on my case with incredible short notice and knocked it out of the park. The results from the Judge’s decision couldn’t have been any better. They put in long hours at night and on the weekends to grasp all of the information involved and how to defend me and make this result possible in the 3 week time frame they had when they took over my case before court was set to resume. I can only imagine if they were given more time, what they could have achieved. They explained the process clearly and helped me understand what direction they were going in and how they were going to get there. These guys are very smart and personable. My mind is blown by how great they did in court!

Forever my go to.
I had a very messy case of trying to gain custody of my sister. She was 15 when we put in our petition. He showed enthusiasm for such a technically difficult case and put all possible effort into it. It was bery easy to get in contact with him leading up to and after court. While in court, he had done all of the needed leg work as well as took great notes during the questioning. I was very uncertain about the whole hiring a lawyer processes and more so if they would properly represent and respect me in this type of case. I will certainly hire him again for any family law issues.

The best family lawyer in Austin!
I want to start by saying Aaron is truly amazing, both as an attorney and as a person. Our case was highly unusual and surprised pretty much anyone who became involved with it. Initially, my step brother had hired Aaron as his attorney to obtain guardianship of his teenage sister (my step sister). To make a long story short, myself and my fiancee were appointed managing conservators even though I had only offered up my testimony for the case. Going forward, my fiancee and I were both lost and confused as we have NEVER dealt with sort of situation before in our lives. We kept in contact with Aaron and immediately felt comfortable and safe with him. He was very personable and helped us more than I can put into words. He was kind, patient, and understanding of our situation and took the time to explain everything in terms that we could understand. We ended up hiring him as our attorney (since we needed one at that point!) and he was able to get our child custody/child support case mediated and settled within a few months of the initial hearing that my strep brother set into motion. Aaron is even working with us financially since we were thrown into this new and unknown world of family law. I would recommend Aaron to anyone who is involved in an unpleasant family related lawsuit. He will do everything in his power to win your case and you can clearly see how passionate Aaron is about his work. Thank you Aaron for helping me and my family through a truly difficult and grueling time, we couldn't have done it without you!

Great Job at Mediation
Aaron filled in for my lawyer John during a court ordered Mediation, and allthough my ex was addiamnet to not compromise on anything Aaron did a great job. He helped John on my request to change my children's last names and the judge ordered in our favor and I am forever grateful for both of them and everything they did for my family.

Calculating and Effective Attorney
Aaron is extremely sharp and calculated. He danced circles around the opposing attorney at my trial, was way more prepared, and had an encyclopedic knowledge of the law and issues. I would recommend him to anyone.

One of the best Family Law lawyers in town!
Aaron and John are among the top lawyers practicing Family Law in Austin Texas. You can be rest assured that the firm will do an amazing job representing you. We handed Aaron and John a case for the record books, as it was quite complex with a lot of moving parts. They did an incredible job to ensure that all our needs were addressed. Aaron particularly did an excellent job explaining everything we needed to know along the way to make the best decisions possible, and we ended up with a settlement that exceeded our expectations. The kindness, care, compassion, and attention given to us was more than we could have hoped for. Aaron even helped us get the case closed quicker than we originally anticipated, which saved us a ton of money on additional future lawyer fee's and court proceedings. Neither of us have had a lawyer work so hard for us before, and for that we are extremely grateful. Truly, if you are in need of a lawyer who is going to do everything they can for you, look no further.

I retained Hennan Culp for what turned out to be quite an ugly divorce. Aaron helped me understand the proceedings and went to bat for me in the best way. I don't think I could have retained my sanity without him!

Committed and Talented Attorney
My fiance and I hired Aaron and his firm for a complicated child custody case. Aaron has a great talent for cutting through a lot of complicated legal information and giving you clear explanations and guidance. He genuinely cared about our case and wanted to fight for the best possible outcome for us. He really understands the nuances of the child custody laws and also the workings of the family court system.

Great attorney!
I came to Aaron feeling completely lost and clueless about my rights regarding my case. He was extremely knowledgable, much more than the other lawyer I had consulted, and on top of that, was compassionate and reassuring. His advice and representation got me through one of the toughest times of my life. Aaron was consummately honest, thorough, and effective. I would recommend him to anyone.

Creative, Hard working and Honest
I would highly recommend Aaron Culp! The legal process was definitely a very scary and foreign thing to me. When I initially met with Aaron, I was very nervous, guarded and did not know what to expect. Aaron understood and respected that and helped me to feel more at ease about this process. Aaron was honest with me about what could and could not happen in my case. He made sure that I understood the legal process and that we were on the same page and in agreement before he made any moves on my case. If I had questions or concerns, Aaron responded to me quickly and patiently. Aaron was also able to find creative solutions when I was not in agreement with the other party. Aaron took the time to learn what was important to me and did not just try to sell me on the "easiest" or quickest resolution. I feel like we ended up with the best results and could not be happier. I always felt well informed, confident and respected when working with Aaron. I would most certainly use him again and highly recommend him to friends, family and anyone looking for a trustworthy and hardworking attorney.

Personable, Knowledgeable, Realistic And Above All Honest
Going through a custody battle is very emotional and often times my emotions would take over, these are the times I would need Aaron the most. Aaron was always there to address any and all of my concerns, he made me feel as though my thoughts and opinions matter. He provided honest, realistic answers and did so in way that was easy to understand. I respect the fact that Aaron wouldn’t just tell me what I wanted to hear, he always was upfront, and honest. He made me feel as though he genuinely cared, never did I feel like just another client. Aaron emanate confidence, intelligence and is beyond professional. I have the utmost trust in his decisions and I respect his advise 110% . Because of Aaron’s knowledge, and work ethic, I was awarded everything that we had asked for. Aaron is a true blessing and I encourage anyone who would like personal guidance and a strategy guided to their end goal to hire Aaron Culp. He’s the absolute best!

Unprofessional
I hired this company to deal my divorce case that was eventually assigned to Aaron Culp. The case was easy one since my ex did not fight over anything. But whenever I tried to contact about my questions I never got any response in timely manner. He never explained me the whole process. I was surprised that he didn’t even care to talk to me after the case was dismissed and and his assistant replied me about the final closing of the case. I expected in my hard time to rely on someone who I wish would be in my side . I never felt he works for me in my favor even though I hired him for my case. Eventually I realized that he was stretching the case for longer duration without any reason so that he gets paid more. I don’t recommend this lawyer for any divorce related case.

Response from Aaron Culp February 12, 2019
I am very sorry to hear that this client had a less than excellent experience at Hennan Culp. This client posted anonymously so I cannot comment on the specifics of their experiences. Part of our firm culture is to always invite one-on-one client feedback at any stage of their representation and we extend the same invitation to this client. We also pride ourselves on always zealously advocating for our client's best interests, responding timely to client questions and concerns, and above all, fair billing practices. If we have failed to meet those expectations, we want to know about it so we can improve our processes and provide the best possible client experiences in the future.
