Christopher Deanda brings honor and integrity to the lawyer profession
Mr. Deanda is, without a doubt, an attorney that takes his craft seriously. In the very recent past, I was facing jail time that I felt wasn't warranted considering the charges and circumstances. I had no legal help however; and the attorney appointed to my case was clearly giving me over to the system. I was offered two different plea deals for jail time and I rejected both. I was then scheduled for trial knowing that, apart from a miracle, I would receive the maximum penalty. I was able to retain Mr. Deanda, and immediately felt a relief upon speaking with him. He visited me numerous times-even on weekends- and he was very personable and honest, and I knew that he would fight hard for me. I trusted him completely and was fully confident in his abilities. Needless to say, Chris went above and beyond in my case and I received a disposition that I could only have dreamed of. He is an awesome attorney and a helluva guy, and I recommend him fully to anyone needing an attorney that takes pride in his chosen profession and remains highly ethical. I was and remain extremely pleased with his services, and wouldn't even consider any other attorney should the instance ever arise where I would again need one

Thank you Christopher. It was an honor to work through a complicated case such as your case. I appreciate you trusting me even though some attorneys have burnt you in the past.

Quit Claim Deed Issue
We want to express our deepest appreciation to our lawyer Chris as he came through for us at a critical time of need. Let me explain. We had recently applied for a mortgage loan modification through our mortgage company, completing and submitting supporting documentation as required. A title deed issue came up requiring we obtain a Quit Claim Deed to our mortgage loan servicing department ASAP or we were at risk losing our pending approval status. Just to tell you a little bit about how we know Attorney Deanda, my husband and Chris have years as close friends and previous co-workers. But we didn't think of contacting him with this issue being that he is located in Midland, TX. After hours of researching online and calling several title company's and law firms here locally on how to obtain this quit claim deed form, we exhausted our resources. A couple of months ago my son had recently hired Attorney Deanda to represent him in his divorce. Mind you, we live in Lubbock, TX and the chances of Attorney Deanda representing my son were very slim. To our surprise, Chris took on my son's case within a day's notice and went above and beyond for him. But my son will have to write his own review ;-). I talked to my husband about contacting Chris to see if he could help us with this title issue. I took a chance and emailed him explaining our situation and asked for a consultation with him. Within 2 days I receive an email from him with an attached Quit Claim Deed form, which was exactly what we were needing!! I thanked him and thanked him over and over again. We are happy to report that we were recently approved for a mortgage loan modification through our mortgage company! Even though Chris is located in Midland we will not hesitate to request his services again or highly recommend him here in Lubbock, TX. He has a very caring and patient disposition, that has not changed. Chris is passionate about his profession and how he cares for people and choosing this profession is definitely the right calling for him. Chris Deanda is an excellent attorney and without a doubt highly recommend his services!!

Pat, I really enjoyed working with you and your son. I know that divorce and child custody battles are pleasant times in one's life. Also, I appreciate you giving me a chance to help you with the quit claim deed and property situation that other attorneys could not help you with.

Amazing Team!
Mr. DeAnda and his team go above and beyond for their clients. After my case was done, there was an issue with the restitution that came up. Mr. DeAnda and his staff worked hard to get the issue resolved and I couldn’t be happier with the way things turned out. I felt like they really cared about me and I wasn’t just another case number.

Son's Case
I will have to say that Mr. DeAnda went above and beyond what he needed to with our son's case. In the short time he had to prepare, he made several trips to see our son to get as much information as he could and did not let up a bit on the case. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney, only wish I would have found him sooner. I promise you, you will NOT be disappointed if you hire Mr. DeAnda for your attorney.

Best Attorney
I spoke with several attorney offices before speaking with Mr. DeAnda’s office. I don’t even know why I wasted my time talking to those other offices. His staff in Midland and Odessa answered all my questions, and it was so convenient to be able to use either office that I chose. I don’t plan on getting in trouble again, but if I do then this is the ONLY attorney that I will EVER use.

Great and honest lawyer
I am a cdl licensed driver and no many lawyers will take commercial case. Mr, DeAnda took my case and won with out even going to court. He was very honest and kept me up to date on the whole process.

So thankful I found him!
I hired Chris DeAnda for my child custody case. I was very impressed with his work and he was reachable around the clock whether it be day or night. He worked late on my case to ensure it was completed in a timely manner and that everything was exactly how I wanted it. Needless to say, Chris got me exactly what I asked for and had my best interest in mind. He did not try to drag anything out to charge more, he genuinely wants to do what’s best for his customers as quickly as possible unless you state otherwise. Also*** He was one of the more reasonably priced attorneys that understands not everyone has ten thousand dollars to pay up front. Very reasonable retainer and payment plan that works for everyone. As I stated before, I feel this attorney actually cares about you.

Compassionate
Mr. DeAnda and his staff treated me with nothing but kindness and professionalism. There is not a doubt in my mind that he worked as hard as he could for me. I had to turn myself in for a warrant and after being denied a bond two days in a row Mr. DeAnda went back on the third business day and got a bond set and I was released. I feel like he has a true passion for his career. He was very upfront and was quick to respond to all of my questions. His staff is just as professional & very caring. Words can't express how grateful I am that Mr. DeAnda was my attorney.

Best case scenario thanks to Mr DeAnda
I found myself on the wrong side of the law and was desperately trying to find someone that would represent me. I went to several attorneys and was met with either concern, doubt or, in one case, fear at the situation I was in. Then, I went to see Mr DeAnda. He listened to what was happening and was excited to face the ordeal I was in! Not only that, he called me within an hour of leaving our initial consultation with some ideas he had already come up with; needless to say, I obtained his services that same day. He was very patient with me throughout the process and the numerous emails I sent him (each with several questions, each). He also helped calm me down a few times when everything seemed bleak. His level of expertise and knowledge of the law and it's intricate processes proved to be invaluable to my situation. Thanks to him, I was able to get the best possible outcome that could be obtained and definitely something I can live with. I say the following without intending it the way it'll sound - I hope I don't have to speak with him, again (only because that means I was stupid, again). However, IF (and that's a very strong IF) my brain decides to turn off again and gets me in trouble, he will definitely be the one I call to fly in with his cape and law knowledge to save my day, again! Mr DeAnda and his staff will always be considered friends and family to me from this day forward. God bless you and yours, Mr DeAnda.

Outstanding Job
Christopher and his staff did an outstanding job on my case, I was never in the dark about anything, all my questions were answer in a prompt matter, if Chris was in court, Lupita and Vanessa made sure they answered any questions I had and addressed any concerns. Would highly recommend hiring Chris and his staff to everyone. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Again Thank You all so much for going above and beyond and helping me with my case!

Mr. DeAnda
Glad I hired Mr. DeAnda for my child support case. I feel that he went above and beyond for me in my particular case. He was beyond prepared. He was more than willing to answer any question that I had, and he was very straight forward. I would definitely hire him again for any legal matter.

Mr.DeAnda was a very professional and out standing in trial. I was looking at 20 years for a crime I didn't commit. He got me a non guilty plea. Thank you Mr. DeAnda.
Response from Christopher DeAnda June 5, 2017
Mr. Crow, I know that it was hard to trust what I was telling you because lawyers have a bad reputation. We worked very hard on your case because of you and our law firm. Thank you for believing in what our office was doing on your case and being a great client. We hope that you continue referring clients to our expanded law firm. I was lucky to have the chance to represent you in your case.

I couldn't ask for a better lawyer.
Mr. DeAnda is one of very few lawyers that didn't jump to making promises he couldn't keep. He always assured me that he would do what he could and never failed to keep his word. Although my case took longer than I expected but it was a smooth process. We had no disagreements and always saw eye to eye. The best part is that I live 5 hours away and got my case dismissed without ever having to step foot in the court room. Thank you so much Mr. DeAnda!!!

Response from Christopher DeAnda February 23, 2016
Jodivera, I know that many attorneys are not equipped to work with clients that do not live in the same county as the attorney. I wish that court cases worked faster, but I cannot control the courts. I can never promise the outcome of a case, but I can promise that I will do the best that I can for each one of my clients. With clients such as yourself, it is a delight because the trust that we have with each other stays strong. I wish you continued success in your career now that your case is dismissed due to both of us working together.

Honest
He was very up front and honest that my situation isn't his field of experience but he did suggest different alternatives.
Response from Christopher DeAnda April 29, 2019
We appreciate your feedback. We believe that each person should get the best legal representation, and that lawyers should not take cases just because someone is willing to pay them. We hope that you get the help that you need in your situation. Thank you for considering us.

"I had the pleasure of knowing and working with Chris during our years as prosecutors for the Midland County District Attorney’s Office. While working for Midland County we had the opportunity to try some high-level felony offenses together. Chris is an extremely talented and experienced trial attorney who is liked by jurors, respected by judges and prosecutors, knowledgeable about the law, perceptive about people and opposing strategy, prepared for a fight and dedicated to zealously advocating for people caught up in the criminal justice system. Chris is always ready to duke it out in the courtroom and go the distance. Anyone seeking representation in a criminal case would be lucky to have Chris in their corner."

"Mr. Deanda is a rare breed because he brings West-Texas courtesy and well above-average competency to the table. He works harder than most with a military background, which is a bold statement that I will stand by. You will leave his office with a positive view of lawyers and come back when no one else makes you feel the same way."
