I was going through a divorce and my son wanted to live with me. I was told by everyone that dads don't get custody in Texas unless mom is unfit. Which my Ex was not. Kristina not only got my son to talk to the judge, and found a way around the home studies that were gonna cost me. She got me my son, no spousal support and no lawyer's fees. She was up front and honest with me from the start and did not let me down. She was amazing and was the best decision I made.

As far as I am concerned Attorney Kristina Voorhies Legan is the top family law attorney in all of Texas Prior to hiring Attorney Kristina Voorhies Legan I had been involved in a nearly five year divorce battle in El Paso, Texas. My now ex-husband had filed for divorce and tried to take virtually all the community property as his own. He was stationed in the military in El Paso and I was living out of state. I had gone through several attorneys in El Paso and some located in other cities in Texas. I had nothing but problems with so many attorneys. They would miss deadlines on filing documents, not return phone calls or emails, not keep me informed about what was going on. The list goes on and on, forcing me to change attorney after attorney. Finally, I was referred to Attorney Kristina Vorrhies Legan. What a God send! Kristina listened to all my concerns and fears. Kristina always promptly returned my phone calls and emails. She kept me informed at every stage of the divorce so I knew what to expect with no surprises. Kristina filed all court documents on time and moved the case along. It spite of my ex-husband and his attorney’s efforts to prolong the case, Kristina brought a five year divorce battle to a prompt and successful conclusion.
Kristina’s office staff was outstanding. Not at all like the staffs of other attorneys that seem to run interference for the attorney and keep have you from talking to them, telling you how busy they are and how they are always in court or in a trial when you need to talk to them. No, not Kristina’s staff. When she was out of the office or in court, they got messages to her and got back to me with answers or the information I needed. Every member of Kristina;s staff is a true professional and a pleasure to deal with.
I only wish I had known about Attorney Kristina Voorhies Legan when the divorce first began. I am so thankful to her!
