Probate process professional
As executor of a friend's estate in Williamson County, I needed guidance through the probate process. The entire firm did an exceptional job from beginning to end -- even with the additional challenges of a pandemic! All were personable, professional, and knowledgable in just how to manage each step of the way. I would highly recommend Mrs. Jones and her team for anyone seeking legal counsel in her practice area.

Above and Beyond Excellent Care
Ms. Jones is kind, thoughtful, and diligent. She and her staff took care of our legal needs swiftly. We are very pleased with the results. The rates are perfectly reasonable for the professionalism and responsiveness of everyone in this office. We especially liked the “Kara Package “ of cookies to celebrate the conclusion. (No guarantee of cookies to all clients, just saying we liked ours.)

Getting a will is actually easy!
I have put off doing a will for years and was referred to Kara by another lawyer I trust. It felt overwhelming at first but she made it easy and simple. I was in and out in an hour and it's all done. Don't be afraid that doing a will is too involved or you don't have time. I was surprised that it was more affordable than I thought too.

Outstanding Service
My whole estate planning experience with Kara and her team was great. The entire staff was personable from the first point of contact with Journey to the execution of the documents and they made it a very seamless process. Kara is very knowledgeable, thorough and accommodating as I needed her and her team to expedite the documents and they went out of their way to make that happen. I highly recommend Kara and I won't hesitate to use her services again.

Sincere 100% Vested in Client
I'll preface with a bad drug addiction on mother. I went to two lawyers that said I had no case. I went to Kara and she did not wink and took my case. Kara ensured my daughters needs were first even when I swayed and was indecisive to "make the call" she stood by me. Being decreed Full Child Custody privileges for a male is not easy; in fact, it's quite the opposite. Given the sad nature of why this even came about (addiction), Kara was my rock. She will not treat you like a client. To be treated as a person in a time of need is not taught in any law school. It's called humility and she has that. And her network on the legal side is expansive. Just that alone gives her an edge apart. Kara represented me 100%. She will do the same for you. Highly recommended from a father and his daughter who will never be separated.

She instills confidence.
I have hired Kara twice to handle family law cases. Each time she has been knowledgeable and very thorough. In both instances I received a satisfactory resolution of my case. She shows a genuine concern for her client's best interest and works very hard to achieve the best outcome possible.

Helpful and easy to work with
Ms. Borchers Jones was extremely helpful and answered all of my questions. I had a successful divorce with minimal stress thanks to her professionalism.
Posted by Diane | March 6, 2013
Excellent Advice
Ms. Borchers handled my divorce quickly and efficiently. I had utmost trust in her knowledge and experience. She was very caring and understood what a difficult time I was going through. I've worked for many attorneys, and many family law attorneys. Ms. Borchers respected my experience and never made me feel that my input was unwanted.
