Fierce, Supportive, and ALWAYS Prepared!
Katy has been incredibly helpful and informative throughout the entirety of our case. Our case began as a Modification of Decree that eventually turned in to a rather nasty custody battle. Upon each and every incredulous action of my ex wife, Katy was right there ready to go. She has never let us down or kept us in the dark on any questjon ww have had and let me tell you.... we have had plenty. Thus far I have been awarded temporary full custody and, God willing, I believe Katy will get us the same permanent results.

The Lawyer you NEED
Katy is an absolute shark when it comes to fighting for her clients and what they deserve. She does not leave any stone unturned and really cares about her clients need, wants, and desires. She is a lawyer who is in her clients corners and has made me feel safe, confident, and informed every step of the way during my case.

Fierce Fighter - Gets it done!
Katy has been direct, prompt, to the point, focused, and does not mess around. She's taken full ownership of my complex and traumatic divorce, and has remained intense in her approach with opposing counsel. Katy seems hungry to go very far, and she's taking action to show that. I couldn't be more pleased or confident in how she is charging forward with my case.

Professional, diligent, and to the point
Katy is compassionte to the situation and has guided me diligently through the course of my divorce and is willing to get aggressive with opposing counsel when need be. Throughout my divorce, I felt like Katy was very fair and reasonable in her billings and did not nickel and dime me. I was well informed and kept in the loop when needed. Katy has been undoubtedly looking out for the best interest of my kids and myself. I recommend her to anyone going through a divorce, even moreso if children are involved.

Wonderful Lawyer
She was referred to my husband and I through a friend. She handled our case with grace and poise. She is great and was able to help mediate our case. She was ruthless and loved handling our slightly messy case. We can not thank her enough for what she helped us achieved!

Tenacious, mindful, caring
Katy fought hard for my rights as a dad to stay a part of my son's life. She was focused on what was best for the child in the divorce and unwilling to budge on anything that was not in that best interest. She was available, attentive, and held my hand through a tough divorce settlement, making sure I was informed and comfortable with each step of the process. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a family lawyer.

The Attorney you want in your corner!
I hired Katy to represent me in a contested SPO modification. During the initial consultation she gave me her word that she would fight to make sure we got what we wanted in court. I've been burned in the past by false promises, but WOW, Katy stayed true to making sure she achieved what I wanted. Katy is very well mannered, and extremely knowledgeable of the law. I would definitely work with her in the future!

I trust Katy with my life.
Katy took care of me when I needed her most. She was tough but respectful to the other side, even when they were nasty. She doesn’t let anyone get under her skin. She shows up and gets the job done perfectly, regardless of how complicated the case is, or how difficult her opposing counsel behaves. She’s reliable and trustworthy: two qualities that are hard to find in a lot of lawyers these days. Most of all, she made me feel heard and understood. I trust her with my life. Thank you, Katy!!

Vicious with a heart of gold.
I went through a long and nasty divorce which started with my ex stealing my 2 year old daughter from me and ending with her on supervised visitation. I'm the father too (which is definitely worth noting). When we went to court for a TRO, Katy ripped my ex to shreds like she was the star of her own lawyer movie having her "A Few Good Men" moment, and my ex was Jack Nicholson screaming a bunch of "I'm about to lose this case" nonsense. If there was an emergency, she was always just an email away. She is also a crafty negotiator who not only got me the deal of the lifetime, but I didn't even have to appear for a final trial, so she saved me thousands of dollars. I would never hire anybody else for this area of law, and if you decide to hire someone else, be cognizant that the opposing counsel might be Katy. If it is her, then prepare to get your ass whooped.

Great Experience!
Katy is a great Lawyer! During my custody dispute, she was attentive, gave me all my options and helped me weight them, and made sure that I was aware of deadlines coming up and kept things moving along. I had a great experience despite that it is a very hard thing to navigate.

Custody Case
Katy helped me gain primary custody of my daughter through incredible effort, sharp legal knowledge, and compassion for justice. In the beginning, I was frustrated because my case was in a different county and no other attorney could seem to end the uphill battle I had been facing for years. Katy was quick to get the case in the correct county and file necessary documents to make sure my child was safe. She has the vision to see the bigger picture and prepares you for realistic outcomes. Inside the courtroom, Katy is relentless and commands the room. She is detail oriented, does not back down, and strategically attacks arguments. She will fight for your rights and for justice to be served. She stood by my side through multiple hearings, mediations, purposeful delay tactics by the opposing side, and shut down an attempted third party intervention. Katy is not only the best lawyer in Houston, but perhaps more importantly she is a compassionate, honest, and the most courageous person I know.

Brilliant!
Attorney Gardner is straight forward, honest, brilliant, prepared and zealously fights with passion and heart. She refuses to lose. She never compromises on being honest. The truth always wins! Attorney Gardner provided superb legal services on a very difficult and complicated custody case. She was absolutely at the top of his game. She never game me excuse, she fought hard and never gave up!! She thoroughly understands Texas law and the legal processes. She can devise a clear, effective strategy that will outline the details of your case. She always communicates very well and is extremely accessible!! The result was a great success at the end of a long, difficult road.
