I cannot sing the praises of Jake Gilbreath enough. He guided me through perhaps the most difficult time of my life—a very complex divorce—and gave me a new lease on it.
Not only did he successfully help me secure what I wanted in my divorce and custody—which is already a huge success—but we had to win not only in one state, but in two. He artfully explained the law, the process, and reasoning for why he made the choices in our case like a partner or mentor. Incidentally, I also gained a dear friend and brother. Unlike many other attorneys I have met, Jake cares to a degree that is staggering, and it obvious when you work with him.
Today, several years later, I still think about and am grateful for the decision [I made] to work with Jake and—even though she may not know it—so is my child. If you're thinking about utilizing Jake's services, do it.
Thank you so much, Jake!

Brian Walters is a class act. He is brilliant, knowledgable, and a consummate professional. He and his incredible team will fight like hell for you when it comes to your family law/divorce case. He is one of those attorneys who under promises and over delivers. He has this team of extremely bright, junior associates you will work with, who are extremely professional and smart. I have had the misfortune of having to hire many attorneys in my life, and without a doubt, Brian Walters was the best, hands down. He's got a brilliant legal mind, calm demeanor, warm and pleasant disposition, and he cuts to the chase when you speak with him. Also, he is a master litigator! He is obviously well-respected in his field. You will realize this when you see the way he is treated in the courtroom by the judge and opposing counsel. You will not be disappointed. From your first conversation with him until the trial, Brian fights hard for your best interests. He is always available to talk and respond to your questions via his cell phone, email, or text. That is extremely rare for an attorney. He is also reasonably priced for a family law attorney. At trial, he crushed the competition and won me a much bigger settlement than I ever imagined. He completely outclassed my ex-husband's lawyer, and this was an extremely acrimonious divorce case in which mediation had previously failed. I was quite nervous going to trial, but Brian was smart and incredibly savvy in his trial approach and explained what he was doing every step of the way. You will be in the best hands if you go with Brian Walters.
I have several girlfriends who were either getting divorced at the same time as me or just recently got divorced and had hired Houston's most famous and pricey attorneys. When I mentioned to them about how Brian was handling my case, they were stunned. Their lawyers weren't as masterful with their cases, nor had they gotten as much accomplished in such a short amount of time like Brian had. They also felt their overpriced attorneys didn't give them much individual attention—or even answer their phone calls on some occasions—something that would never happen with Brian. One of my friends, after hearing about Brian's prowess in the courtroom, is even considering switching to Brian as her divorce attorney. Don't hesitate. Just call Brian! He will be your secret weapon!

I spoke with many attorneys and had one prior to hiring Jake, and [my case] dragged out for over a year. My ex used [a well-known lawyer], and many attorneys wouldn't touch my case because of it. [That lawyer] dragged everything, used every single scare tactic, and played really dirty, just pinning my ex and I against each other in such a nasty way. I lost faith in the justice system and couldn't believe [my ex] was able to get away with what he did. He left with all our money and maintained that powerful edge against me. I needed someone who wasn't afraid to fight for me and my children. That person was, and is, Jake Gilbreath. He made me believe in justice and fairness again. He knew every tactic and angle the opposing attorney had, and it never caused him to bat an eye. He stayed ahead of the game and encouraged me not to give up. Though my ex and his attorney performed some shamefully dishonest, inexcusable, and unforgivable maneuvers in the first round that traumatized me, Jake still encouraged me to do what it takes to restore a positive relationship with my children's father (because that is what is best for them). His focus is doing what's best for the children, and he doesn't care what it takes or who he's up against. If you need someone who is going to fight for your kids, your rights, and encourage you no matter what, Jake is the attorney you need. No matter how ugly and dirty the other side played, he never once entertained the thought of playing those games. He maintained his (and my) integrity the whole way through, [which is] something I really needed. I encourage you, whether you are a man, woman, father, or mother: if you need someone who is good, quick, ahead of the game, fair, and who works hard, don't waste any more time and just call this guy.

I came to Brian in the midst of a messy divorce that had dragged on for over a year! I was exhausted [and] confused as to how to proceed. All of my anxiety ceased the moment Brian took my case. He's a phenomenal attorney! I simply can't say enough good things about him. To start, he took ownership of my divorce from day one. He went about his work as if it were he who was getting divorced. The second I walked out of his office after our first meeting, I knew I had hired the best. Brian is extremely thorough (making calls, filing motions, etc.) all without me having to initiate anything. He was on top of every aspect of my case. His staff is equally impressive. Whenever I dealt with them, they were very knowledgeable, courteous, and helpful. When working with anyone in Brian's office, you feel as though you're working with Brian himself. I was always made fully aware of how things were progressing with my case and was never left to wonder about a single detail. From A to Z, Brian scores 100%—he's that good. As for that divorce that dragged on for over a year? Brian finalized it in one week! I would absolutely recommend anyone and everyone to hire Brian as their attorney! He's the best, hands down! Brian, you are a lifesaver!

[A] Five star [review] doesn't do Slav Talavera any justice. When I hired Slav 6 months ago, I was embroiled in a four-year, bitter, and complicated family law case. Slav guided me through the entire process when no other attorney could. He was extremely patient and compassionate, and he fought for me with conviction. I finally [felt] as though someone was fighting for me—and in a family law case, that is what you need. He managed my expectations through and through, and I could not be happier. He's simply the best.

I hired Brian after working with other family law attorneys who made promises they simply were not able to keep. The difference between Brian and other attorneys specializing in this field is staggering. Brian's professionalism, calm demeanor, and knowledge of family law truly sets him apart. It is obvious from how he is treated and revered by opposing counsel, courtroom personnel, and others in this field that he has worked hard to earn their respect, and it is well deserved. Simply walking into a courtroom with Brian at your side gives you an immediate advantage with your case. He is one of those rare attorneys who actually listens to their client, gives common-sense advice, and follows through with what they say they will do. I cannot recommend Brian highly enough.

I had an awful contested divorce at the beginning of the year. I met with three other attorneys before deciding to hire Jake. As soon as I met Jake, I was impressed. He was confident and knowledgeable on the law, and was an excellent advocate in the courtroom. Jake took depositions of my ex-husband, and even stayed by my side when I had a breakdown at mediation. We ended up in trial, and compassionate Jake quickly turned into a bulldog advocate. He was well prepared, quick on his feet, and made me feel confident to have Jake on my side. We were incredibly successful in court, and I owe it all to Jake. He saved my family.

Brian Walters is an amazing attorney. This review is going to be slightly long, so please bear with me, but I feel a short review would not do proper justice to how well Brian handled my divorce case.

By the time I contacted Brian Walters, my divorce case had been dragging on for over seven months with no resolution in sight, and I felt that my attorney at the time was not properly representing my interests. I called Brian's office and was immediately connected with Brian. He spent over an hour on the phone with me listening to the particulars of the case, and explained to me how he would handle my case going forward. He even advised me on how to handle removing my previous attorney from the case.

After that first phone call, I felt like I was in control of my case for the first time since I had filed for divorce. I removed my previous attorney from my case and got Brian a retainer fee (which was very reasonable). I met Brian at his office, and was very impressed by the friendliness and professionalism of both Brian and his staff. After speaking with Brian for half an hour, he had revised documents filed with the court, a trial date set, and a strategy to close my case. He then (very professionally), contacted my ex with a settlement offer. Unfortunately, my ex was unwilling to settle, so we took the case to trial before a judge. Brian made sure I understood the process beforehand and was extremely competent, poised, and professional. Mr. Walters was able to complete my divorce case (with a favorable resolution for me) in less than two months.

Beyond Brian's excellent understanding of family law, his consummate professionalism, and his unflappable confidence, he is also very accessible. At no point during my case did it take more than 20 minutes for him to respond to me—even on weekends and while he was on vacation. Additionally, he always treated me with the utmost respect and made it very clear that it was his top priority to represent my interests to the best of his (considerable) abilities.

If you need a family law attorney, do yourself (and your kids, if applicable) a favor and call Brian Walters - you won't regret it.

Jake Gilbreath wasn't the first attorney that I called, but he was the last. Within the first 5 minutes of our first conversation, he validated all of my concerns, and for the first time in years, I felt that my son and I were going to be okay. Jake is respected among his peers for his abilities inside the courtroom and out, and it was this same reputation that encouraged my spouse to settle on an agreement prior to our trial date. Most importantly, Jake always had my son's best interest in mind throughout our case.

When I hired an attorney to represent me in my divorce, I was hung out to dry at the first mediation. This other attorney did nothing to protect me or my interests. It was obvious to everyone—especially the other counselor and my husband—my attorney was intimidated. After a grueling eight hours of mediation, I ended up homeless, with no financial support and no vehicle. Coming out of the meeting, my attorney told me she wanted to hire my daughter (who knows nothing about the law) who helped her in the mediation. I almost hit the floor. I cried and had nightmares all night. After I pulled myself together, I found Brian on a legal-advice web site, and he offered to help me right off the bat. Brian called me immediately, I explained the situation to him, and within minutes he explained that in his years of experience, he has seen this happen too many times. He took the time to explain things to me and was completely understanding about my cash flow situation and worked with me to secure his retainer. Even with my hesitation and changing my mind almost a hundred times about hiring a new attorney, he agreed to represent, [me]. Honestly, he and his team are priceless. After meeting with Brian, I had my first good night's sleep in months. My husband blindsided me with a divorce, this was my first and only marriage, I was dumbfounded, confused, and totally caught off guard. In a matter of a week, Brian leveled the playing field, talked me through some really out-of-the-blue circumstances, and never, ever wavered. I am in need of a good probate attorney now, and my only wish is I find one at least 1/2 as good as Brian and his awesome support team. Do not waste your money or take any chances. If you want an attorney that is strong and smart from or the get-go, you want Brian. If you need an attorney you can trust, hire Brian. You will sleep peacefully knowing you're in good hands; I know I did. I promise you, Brian is an attorney with a heart! My only regret is that I did not hire Brian Walters from the word "go!"

I had a lengthy case that was extremely complex. My previously lawyer had told me my case was "unwinnable." When my previous lawyer bailed on me when things were rough, Jake made sense of everything. My case had dragged on for two years previous to Jake. Within two months of hiring Jake, my litigation was over. The thing that really won me over, besides the outcome, was that he clearly invested time in my case when I was not around. I 100% recommend Jake. I truly hope to never need an attorney again, but if I [do,] Jake will be my first call.

Brian is an excellent, knowledgeable lawyer who is an expert at family law. My divorce case was very complicated since it involved issues of international child abduction and obtaining child custody. Brian helped me obtain sole managerial custody of my child, which is very difficult to achieve in Texas. Thanks to Brian, my child can live safely in the United States without the fear of being abducted internationally. I would also like to add that Raya has been extremely helpful. [She] studied my case in great detail and helped me understand the workings of mediation and all the options available to me. I would highly recommend Brian and his law firm if you are involved in a complicated divorce case, especially one concerning child custody issues.

Brian and Jake listened carefully to my situation. They prepared all appropriate court documents and filed them the next day. Their staff was pleasant to deal with and very organized. Although I was under a great deal of stress from my spouse's emotional abuse, their prompt, and appropriate legal actions on my behalf immediately calmed the situation. I deeply appreciated their availability and prompt answers to any questions I had. They do things "above board" and "by the book" but are prepared for all the dirty players they come up against. You are under a lot of stress in a divorce. Hire this firm, and you will not have to stress about the legal stuff. They truly have your back.

I hired Jake for my child custody modification case. Before I hired him, I knocked on lots of doors to find that "right lawyer" who could understand what I was trying to do, who was confident enough to take the case, and mostly, who could be honest with me without B.S.

I almost immediately noticed a few unique qualities that separate Jake from other lawyers, and these qualities were shown throughout the time while he was working on my case. He is super intelligent. I mean, we all would like to believe that lawyers are intelligent, but Jake's intelligence is different. He never forgets anything you say to him, even in passing, especially anything that has something to do with the case. He will remember and use it at the right time. I have dealt with lawyers who forget what was said in previous discussions. He never misses anything, and while he is able to see the big picture instantly, he already knows how to scale down and feed his client the information step by step. I was also impressed by his responsiveness. The man works for 24 hours and will respond day and night. Not only is he responsive, he also believes in technology—he will communicate via text messages! My lawyers in the past didn't really communicate with me via text message, so this was really surprising. I also noticed he was very clear on when and on what matter he would communicate via emails or text messages. He is also highly efficient. I had lawyers who tried to have me do things even before the case went to the court. Jake did not want to do that. This actually made a bit weary in the beginning despite the good impression I had of him. All other lawyers wanted my child to see a counselor of their choice, but even though Jake had one with whom he works closely, he did not want my child to go through that unless it was absolutely necessary. This saved me tons of time and money. My case had to stop in the middle of the way, so it never went to court. However, the whole time I was with him, I was very confident. I could tell he would be very aggressive in his fight for me. I knew I was in good hands. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who especially has a very complicated and difficult case to handle.

One never anticipates the day that life will get to be such a terrible mess, that despair will come, and the feeling of hope slipping away comes crashing in. All of the whirlwind of emotions and uncertainty goes away once meeting with Brian Walters and his team. My situation with gaining custody of my daughter was a difficult one, to say the least. Having dealt with my ex-husband's lawyer, who apparently made false moves, it was a breath of fresh air working with Brian. Facts will always deliver the truth, and his team diligently made an effort to ensure that substantial factual evidence drove the case. Although my ex-husband and I did settle out of court, I will call Brian Walters in a heartbeat if or when life shows it's ugly face again. If you need someone that is one hundred percent willing to fight for what is right for you, then the only task to complete is to pick up the phone and call [Brian Walters].

I was looking for a great trial attorney for a child [custody] modification. At Walters Gilbreath, they [went] above and beyond. I have a very limited budget, and they [stuck to it]. Their work is outstanding. Jake Gilbreath and Robert Tsai at the firm are the first attorneys who have shown they actually care. [They] put an interest in my case, listened to the information I sent them, and are very OCD. They get the job done right but also understand you cannot go bankrupt in the process. If you are looking for a great attorney, look no further. This is the place to go.

Brian came highly recommended by two friends who also suggested I fire my previous attorney based on his reputation. Thankfully, they gave me great advice—my other lawyer had me a nervous wreck. I trust Brian and know he has my back and am 100% confident he is protecting me, my assets, and my financial future. I highly recommend Brian to all of my friends, colleagues, and clients who have the misfortune of going through a divorce. Thanks for keeping me safe, Brian!

Jake was recommended to me by a friend, and [he] was a good fit for my needs. He was honest and upfront about my options from the beginning. He attempted to contact the other party's attorney to resolve the case before he even took a cent from me. He was prepared for every step of the mediation and subsequent trial, yet did not create a plethora of documents that only serve to run up the bill. He used our time wisely and worked within my budget to the best of his abilities to resolve any issues we could prior to heading to court. I trusted that Jake had my best interest in mind at all times. Ultimately, I think that is the most important part of hiring a lawyer because that is what put my mind at ease. Jake is empathetic but not the kind of lawyer who holds your hand every step of the way, so if that's what you need, he might not be the guy for you. But if you want a lawyer with a keen mind, a lot of experience, and a thorough understanding of the law, I can think of no one better. I hope I never need a divorce lawyer again, but if I do, Jake Gilbreath is who I would hire without reservation.

I've had the pleasure of knowing Brian and his family for over 20 years. He's an incredibly smart, trustworthy, and driven person. When my wife of 20 years decided to end our marriage, I was devastated, to say the least. At first, I had hired a local attorney. I quickly realized my wife was out to take our 2-year-old adopted son away from me and force the sale of our beautiful, hill-country home—a home my father and I spent years building ourselves. For a reason I could not understand, she was out to take everything. Although my son was the number one fight, my original attorney was pressing me to meet my wife's demands of forcing the house to sell within two weeks of her filing. That was the lowest point of my life. That was the point I reached out to Brian. Brian was amazing. It was a Friday night when he received my plea. By Saturday, he sent me a text to ease my mind. Sunday eve we spoke on the phone and he assured me that fairness could be achieved. He assured me that I was not going to lose my son, and the house and my retirement could be kept. Although Brian could not take my case personally, he conference-called me at 7 am, Monday morning with his new partner Jake Gilbreath. I immediately fired my original attorney and hired Jake to represent me. The best decision I ever made! I lived in our home for three months with my wife under the painful threat of losing everything. I only lived there to be close to my son. My wife was out to destroy me, and I had no comprehension of why. At that point, the only thing I had to hold on to was my faith in Brian and Jake, and their knowledge of the legal system. On the day of mediation, Jake was extremely calm. I was a mess. My wife put us through a painful mediation. I was firm on one stance; I was willing to go to court and lose everything just to keep my son. I don't think my wife realized what she was doing. Our mediation lasted for 14 hours. Throughout the process, Jake was brilliant. His attention to detail was amazing! He caught a number of things that, if went unchecked, would have caused a lot of problems. In the end, I received a modified SPO that gave me a life with my son. I got to keep the house. I just took over the payments. I kept my retirement and 1/2 our stock portfolio. It's been over a month now since mediation. Throughout this process, I was in contact with numerous friends [who were] either going through a divorce or recovering from their divorce. Every single one of those friends were absolutely amazed at the results Brian and his firm accomplished. I owe my new life with my son to Brian and Jake. Hire them! You will not be disappointed!

[I would rate Walters Gilbreath with] 10/10 on the quality their office brings, from the moment of consultation to months in. Sheree was my first contact, and she got me set up with their office over the phone. The stress of needing to switch attorneys in the middle of the game was really getting to me. Sheree got me on the phone with Brian Walters within an hour, and she completely restored my faith that I was in good hands for the representation my case needed.

This was my second attempt at hiring an attorney for a high-conflict custody battle. I originally found Walters Gilbreath from reading their website on UCCJEA cases. After my first attorney came unprepared to two different court arrangements and a failed attempt at mediation, I knew it was time to look for someone else’s help. I was worried I was going to lose my daughter because my first lawyer was not very strong. I called Walters Gilbreath the day after mediation, and it was a night-and-day difference.

They immediately got on my case and had items filed within 24 hours of retaining service. They also let my first attorney go, so there wouldn’t be any tension or additional billing. Not only was Brian Walters a better attorney who communicates well, Nadia, really made a huge impact on how secure I felt their law office was handling my case.

My divorce was a nightmare until I hired Jake Gilbreath. I had been up against [another lawyer's] office for about eight months with another lawyer before I hired Jake. [The opposing counsel's] office was bombarding me with huge, long emails and demands that were unnecessary, draining all the money we had as community property. The injustice of it all was killing me. Their office was dragging it out, using all our funds, and we weren't getting anywhere until Jake got on board. Once I hired him, things were swiftly settled, and the whole thing was finally over. He not only saved me from spending more money on attorney fees, but he actually saved my ex money too—once we ended all the outrageous time/money coming from [the opposing counsel]. Besides all of that, I really like his demeanor, and he actually turned the whole thing into a more positive experience. He had the perfect attitude, and he [was] tough [when] going against [the other attorney]—he turned the whole situation around within weeks once he took on my case.

Brian represented me in a divorce where we were splitting approximately $4 million in equity. Brian did an exceptional job in mediation with results better than anticipated, and he took steps to minimize my legal fees. During a follow-up for potential litigation with my ex-wife, Brian counseled me to "not throw good money after bad." Throughout the process, Brian was realistic and accurately predicted the final outcomes. Additionally, he did not attempt to rack up unnecessary legal costs.

I was in need of a divorce attorney when I came across Brian Walters on a couple of different websites. He had many good reviews, so I decided to call his office. There was no answering service, no automated system you have to go through, a live person answered. I gave a brief summary of my needs and was told that someone would contact me shortly. Within 5 minutes of hanging up, Mr. Walters called me from his cell phone, and we started discussing my case. I could tell immediately that he had a wealth of knowledge and experience. He was very upfront about how he thought my case would go (length, complexity, etc.) and about the expenses that would be associated with my case. Every time I had a question or needed some advice, Mr. Walters was exceptionally easy to get a hold of. Usually, he would answer his phone directly or respond to my voicemail with a text within a few minutes. I felt very comfortable with Brian Walters. I knew that I was getting great representation, and nothing would fall through the cracks. I highly recommend Brian Walters to anyone seeking legal representation.

I hired Brian and his team to represent me for a Texas divorce, which ended up being considerably more difficult and lengthy than anticipated. Upon my first meeting with Brian, I came away with a sense of complete confidence in his knowledge and experience, and he proved this over and over throughout the 9-month divorce process. I can't say enough about how responsive and accessible that Brian and his team were during the entire process. There was never a single time when Brian and Raya weren't accessible or able to get back to me within a couple of hours of when I contacted them. Brian and Raya always were extremely thorough, straightforward, and professional. Even when I was upset with moves that the other side made, Brian's calm demeanor and counsel were always spot-on and helped me keep things in perspective. In the end, I achieved a mediated settlement with Brian's hands-on help that was acceptable to me. After the divorce was final, I have continued to have difficulty with my ex-wife, and Brian has continued to be accessible and extremely helpful with helping me deal with things. I would not hesitate to recommend Brian and his team with any type of divorce or family law legal need. I am thankful that I chose [Brian Walters] to represent me.

During the worse possible time, going through what was legally described as a "high conflict" divorce, Mr. Gilbreath was truly the only source of hope for my family and I. He was present, available, and patient. It was clear that he was experienced, and unlike most lawyers who drag divorces on and on, his main goal was to get us out a very miserable situation as fast as possible with better results than expected, regardless of how slow the legal system can be at times. We are grateful for Mr. Gilbreath and highly recommend him to families going through a divorce looking for fast and great results.

They are hands down the best family attorneys in Austin, and I would highly recommend them to anybody.

Brian is, without a doubt, one of the best attorneys around. From our first phone conversation to the end of my case, Brian kept me informed every step of the way.

I was referred to Mr. Gilbreath through a friend. I've often found that references by word-of-mouth are the best. This could not have been more true. Mr. Gilbreath was absolutely phenomenal. I could not have asked for anything more. He got to work right away, assisting me with a difficult divorce. Divorces can be financially and emotionally straining to go through, but with Mr. Gilbreath by my side, it was a breeze. Mr. Gilbreath was always attentive and responded quickly to any questions, calls, or emails. Mr. Gilbreath ultimately made this entire process as easy as it could possibly be and gave me a timeframe as to when it would be concluded. The best thing I can to this review is that I will refer Mr. Gilbreath to my closest friends and family.

Before finding Brian, we felt like [other attorneys saw us as just another] legal case number. Our previous lawyers seemed to lack interest in our overall case, and as a result, our issues had not been resolved. Brian is different—he actually listened to the background of our situation and was interested in understanding our overall goals. Brian kept us informed throughout the process, supported us throughout, and was promptly available to discuss any issues that arose. We have full confidence in Brian and his team.

Jake represented me in my divorce in a way that I could not have asked for. He was knowledgeable about family law specific to my case. The thing I most appreciated about Jake was that I felt that he truly had my boys' best interest at hand. They are very young and have quite a few years in front of them, and Jake took this serious. He protected us throughout the process and made sure we stayed on track to best represent our case. I would certainly recommend Jake to someone with children so that you can find peace in what is to come.

I have nothing but great things to say about this law firm. After searching and speaking to many attorneys, Brian Walters was the most knowledgeable in family law. My case was different as I live in Chicago IL, but needed representation in Austin, TX. I was worried about price and communication. Brian Walters asked for about half of what other attorneys asked for a retainer. Communication with him and his office was amazing. There is a portal where you can see invoices, documents, and contact Brian Walters directly—and he responds fast!
Now that my case is finalized, I feel comfortable recommending Brian Walters to anyone who needs to go through family matters like child support.

When I first met Jake, he proposed a solution that was unorthodox and one that required me to go elsewhere for legal help. He did not charge me anything for the meeting either, given my situation. That is when I decided that I would go to him if needed. I did need him. And I am glad that I went to him. Jake will speak the truth to you. That is in itself empowering. But more importantly, he will make you feel supported and cared for. He will also guide you to keep the prize in sight and not get distracted with the trivia and the mundane. That too, is needed when you are emotionally charged. He is a good negotiator as well. I would recommend him to anybody who is honest and direct.

I can start by saying that I am a father of a 15-year-old son. I contacted Brian and his staff for legal services. In the beginning, I paid a consultation fee and explained my situation to Brian. I told Brian I reside in a different state over 1000 miles from my son's residence, and Brian (being very confident as he is) told me, "it would not be a problem." Brian and his legal staff replied to emails quickly and returned phone calls in a timely manner. Honestly, I thought it was going to be a long-term custody case, but it ended quicker than we expected. To be honest, I have never met Brian and his staff in person, we only knew each other by phone and email. Brian, I still hope to meet you and your great staff in person one day! Thank you is a small word for what you and your staff have done to help me reunite with my son. I highly recommend Brian and his law firm and would give them a 10-star rating!

Jake has been an incredible attorney. He did an absolutely incredible job representing me throughout my divorce and custody hearings back in 2013. It was not a simple case by any means; I was asking for a lot. He was very straight forward about his agenda and executed them seamlessly. He got the other party to settle, and we signed off on everything I asked for, within reason. That arrangement was perfect for our family, but unfortunately, two years later, in 2015, my situation with my children’s father took a turn for the worse. I was uncertain what was going on, but I rehired Jake to help me sort it out. He immediately set up a meeting with him that Sunday (his day off). Within a week, we were in court with an order to test the other party for drugs. As soon as he found out the results came back positive for several drugs, he called me to meet him at his office to sign off on an injunction. He went before a judge that same day to cease all visitations until we could get a Guardian Ad Litem to further investigate. This escalated quickly from a modification case to a termination case. He communicates very well and doesn't beat around the bush. I have full faith in Jake. He has always put the best interest of the children first, and that alone lets me rest easy. Even though he has several clients at a time, he has never made me feel like anything less than his top priority. I would (and have) recommend him to anyone going through a hard time and in need of a fantastic attorney.

I have only good things to say about Brian Walters and his team. Mr. Walters was able to schedule my consultation quickly and advise me on what steps I needed to take. Brian took the appropriate actions regarding the filing and putting temporary orders in place—this was extremely helpful considering our short timeline to do so. Anytime I needed advice or had questions, Brian was always there. Brian and his team have always shown me courtesy and respect. Mr. Walters does care about his clients. Brian is always calm, patient, and steadfast, unlike some of the other attorneys I consulted. His relaxed, confident demeanor instills trust, and he has demonstrated his trustworthiness throughout the process. You can hire a number of good attorneys in Houston at all price points, but I chose Brian Walters because he is the best.

Jake was [the] attorney I used for my divorce. He tells you exactly what you are facing and shows you various scenarios that you will face. He doesn't beat around the bush. If you are looking for someone to make you false promises, he is not your guy.

In my case, he gave me the rundown on the judges and their tendencies as well as which judge we would likely get. Once the judge was announced, he told me five things that would happen even down to the fact that this judge would be 30-45 minutes late. He was five-for-five on his predictions. Based on the judge he told me what time court would start (30-45 min late was his prediction, and it was 40 minutes on the nose), told me what the judge would do off the bat (which was RIGHT into opening statements...correct again), told me the judge would order the two attorneys to chambers (right again), then the judge would tell the other attorney "you need to go out in the hall and settle this" (right), and lastly the judge would disallow some disputed financials. He nailed them all. It was impressive how he had the judge's tendencies nailed. This is from experience in the courtroom. He made me feel like everything was under control. If you have never been through a divorce hearing, it is a lonely, scary feeling. I can't describe the emotions of that day. Having someone by your side to help you through it and to let you know that the had it all under control is worth its weight in gold.

He told me off the bat where he would get me in my settlement, and he came within 5% of that number. He is VERY good at his profession. He is a litigator who knows the Travis county system inside and out, and that is HUGE when going through a divorce. He was worth every penny I paid him. My ex spent twice the dollar amount on her attorneys than I did, and I got very close to what I was asking for half the price.

Hire Jake. Don't mess around. I waited to hire him, and it cost me time with my kids and money while I messed around trying to settle it myself.

I was referred to Jake by my tax lawyer in Austin, and thank God I was. At the time, I didn't realize how ugly my divorce would become. Jake was responsive, professional, and fought hard to represent me in all aspects of the divorce. He provided solid advice and guided me through an extremely emotional and taxing situation. The divorce itself took a year and a half, and around 15 court appearances to conclude. Jake was an advocate both in the courtroom and out of it.

Since the conclusion, I've been more than happy to send friends his way who are going through divorces themselves.

No leaf unturned. All of the reviews given towards this man are absolutely accurate and warranted—Brian and his staff were the epitome of team workers. They never left me in the dark or uninformed on the process/issues proposed by opposing counsel. Truly to sum it up in one word: fantastic. I would recommend him to anyone needing a divorce attorney. Period!

I felt so lucky to have been referred to Jake Gilbreath while being through such a hard marriage and toxic situation. I was hit very off guard when my husband filed for divorce. There was so much hurt and shock and fear as he quickly hired a successful attorney for fear of how he would be painted.

The very first time I spoke to Jake, he eased my panic and treated me like a friend yet remained professional and direct. He seemed to truly care right off the bat and instantly gave me the reassurance that no matter what, he would help me through it, and it would be ok.

0ne of the things I respected most about Jake was the honesty that he always conveyed to me. At times, during a difficult time, it is hard to hear some of the possibilities of the outcome of any divorce. I felt Jake gave me worst-case scenarios to prepare me, yet came through to truly show me he knew his stuff and was one step ahead.

He gave me very sound advice and never took on more than what he knew would work out for me. There was a time when I had to decide how far I wanted to take things by going to court. I so appreciated him being able to predict the outcomes based on his experience and offer me a different idea... which was to settle and move on with life! I can't thank him enough for pushing me in this direction. He did still play hardball when appropriate, [and his staff] were wonderful communicators.

Divorce is such a vulnerable time. I never doubted being in good hands. Jake is sharp and honest and upfront when needed. I would absolutely recommend him to someone going through the same thing. I need to also comment about how respectful he is to women and how pro-female he is while not being in any way obnoxious, opinionated, or tacky. He simply knows how to help when the trauma of divorce is dealt.

I am so thankful that my children were the first concern and Jake, being a family man, doesn't like men who are hateful to women.

Jake helped me through the emotional and legal minefield of a first-time divorce. I found him to be easy to talk with, and he explained what would occur in a manner that relieved my anxiety. I would not hesitate to recommend his services to others.

My attorney, Robert Tsai, who is an associate for Brian Walters, was an amazing attorney to represent me in the modification of the custody of my daughter. I am not one to frequently hire an attorney, and initially, I was nervous about having to retain [Brian Walters] to represent me. I looked around at other options for an attorney, but Brian and his firm were highly recommended. Once I met with Brian and Robert, they put my fears at ease. They were always available to answer my concerns and questions. In the end, they were able to provide a positive outcome for my case. I am so grateful for them. Just as they had assured me, I was able to get the outcome I had hoped for in my case. If I should ever need legal assistance in the future, they will be the first attorneys I will call.

I just recently went through a very bitter divorce. Not knowing anything about this process, I found my self retaining the services of an attorney that turned out not to represent my best interest. After realizing what was at stake, I was compelled to seek the services of a lawyer that was very knowledgeable and truly cared about the outcome of my case. Brian's firm was very professional, and they did everything the right way. He fought hard for me to retain my assets and represented me in a very professional manner.
★★★★★

Adrienne

I called Brian the moment my ex-husband sued me for more custody of our son, and he immediately began working on my case. Brian was very prompt to answer my questions and concerns and was easy to work with during our meetings. His assistant, Raya, was absolutely amazing to work with, as well. She read into every detail of my case, quickly answered my emails, and continually communicated with Brian. The entire process went very smoothly, even though the other party was extremely unresponsive and uncooperative. In the end, my ex was not able to gain any significant custody and was ordered to back pay many months' worth of child support. Brian and his team truly worked for the best interest of my child, and it was evident in their diligence and outcome of the case! I couldn't be happier with the outcome, and I will be coming back with any future legal matters!

Brian Walters and his team were very knowledgable and professional. A friend of mine referred me to another lawyer, who I originally went with and now regret.

I went through a divorce that was complicated by a shared business with my ex. [Brian's] initial consultation sold me as he gave me the best advice regarding how to divide and move forward with the jointly-owned business while protecting my share of assets. He was always available (especially by email early in the morning). He did an excellent job of keeping prices down by spending his time on the right strategy, and then he let his team of paralegals and junior attorneys execute the work (at very favorable rates). His no-nonsense and pragmatic approach to challenges, and his rapid actions following, made me a raving fan of Brian Walters. I have and will continue to recommend him without hesitation. He is a true professional with an exceptional understanding of family and divorce law, as this is his specialty. Rarely do attorneys get such glowing reviews, but Brian has earned this and deserves the accolades. Keep up the good work, Brian, and many thanks to you and your team for a job well done! All the best and continued success.

I was looking for an attorney that would get the job done and do it right. Mr. James Gilbreath has done exactly what I am looking for. I am trying to get more custody of my daughter, and he has pushed to get it to trial and has done just that. He is always available by phone, email, and text. He is very well organized, and I highly recommend [him]. If you are looking for results, Mr. Gilbreath and his team are who you are looking for. They are aggressive and honest.

Brian did a superb job of taking a highly contentious and complex divorce, and bringing it to a successfully resolved mediation. I really can't thank him enough for helping me navigate this enormously difficult process. His great service to me was that he was able to manage antagonistic and dramatic opposing counsel. Shutting that down led to meaningful progress.

Jake and his team took my case—which should have been simple but turned out to be much more difficult than expected—and they fought beside me at every unexpected turn of events. His team was easy to contact thankfully since I had many questions as I am unfamiliar with the divorce and custody process. I was shocked at their loyalty and dedication to my case and gave me the confidence to fight for my rights and for my child until I received a fair deal. Thank you to you and your team Jake! What you have done for me will echo through eternity. You have saved my relationship with my daughter—and for that, I am forever grateful.

I have been in the court system for three years and worked with several attorneys. I have never had an attorney so dedicated to fighting for me and my children.

I would highly recommend him to anyone needing legal counsel. My children and I would be lost without him.

I came to Brian with a post-divorce issue. I was very skeptical of lawyers since my prior experience was not anywhere near as positive as my experience with Brian.

Brian and his team can't be beat. With almost 2 decades of experience in TX, it was apparent immediately that my husband and I were in good hands when we started an ugly custody battle. He was honest and didn't sugar coat anything, but reassuring at the same time. I have heard nothing but horror stories about people's experiences with attorneys and this was a first for me. I've never had any legal battle, so I was very nervous. Family law seems to be ugly most of the time, but Brian and his team made us feel at ease with our case from day 1. He knows the judges in Austin and accurately anticipates how they will likely respond to any given circumstance, which made the whole process easier for us. At the end of the day, the custody battle ended with a successful adoption. My family and I couldn't be happier. I very strongly recommend Brian Walters.

I CANNOT sing the praises of Jake Gilbreath enough. He guided me through perhaps the most difficult time -a very complex divorce - of my life and gave me a new lease on it.

Not only did he successfully help me secure what I wanted in my divorce and custody which already a HUGE success. We had to win not ONLY in one state, but two for example. He artfully explained the law, the process, and reasoning for why he made the choices in our case like a partner or mentor. Incidentally, I also gained a dear friend and brother. Unlike many other attorneys I have met Jake cares to a degree that is staggering and it obvious when you work with him.

Today several years later I still think about and am grateful for the decision to work with Jake and even though she may not know it so is my child. If you're thinking about utilizing Jake's services...do it.

Thank you so much Jake!

I have nothing but great things to say about this law firm. After searching and speaking to many attorneys, Brian Walters was the most knowledgeable in family law. My case was different as I live in Chicago IL, but needed representation in Austin, TX. I was worried about price and communication. Brian Walters asked for about half of what other attorneys asked for a retainer. Communication with him and his office was amazing. There is a portal where you can see invoices, documents, and contact Brian Walters directly and he responds fast!

Now that my case is finalized I feel comfortable recommending Brian Walters to anyone who needs to go through family matters like Child support.

I was looking for a great trial attorney for a child modification. At Walters Gilbreath, they have gone above and beyond. I have a very limited budget and they have stuck with that budget and their work is outstanding. Jake Gilbreath and Robert Tsai at the firm are the first attorneys who have shown they actually care and have put an interest in my case, listened to the information I send them, and are very OCD. They get the job done right but also understand you cannot go bankrupt in the process. If you are looking for a great attorney, look no further. This is the place to go.

My original family law attorney for many years had decided not to practice family law anymore so I was in desperate need to locate a new lawyer. Brian Walters was the 2nd law firm that I interviewed and was immediately impressed with his knowledge of the law and his “up front” candor. Another thing that impressed me was his fee and his attention to communication. If you are looking for an attorney that is very accessible Brian is for you. BTW he did win our case 🙂

Mr. Walters was the consummate professional. At a stressful time in my life, he was there to “walk me through” the system and to be my advocate in court. I’m afraid the court would have eaten me alive had Mr. Walters not been there for me. He was very prompt in answering all my questions and he earned an A+ for communication. I do highly recommend him. Family matters in court are stressful, to say the least. Take my advice…. don’t go through it alone. The legal fees are worth every penny.

I was ambushed with a divorce and a custody battle. I needed a knowledgeable tested lawyer that offered quality and affordability and brought value to my case. I retained Brian Walters to represent me and it was the smartest thing I ever did. Brian was able to guide me through the hardest event in my life with a sense of compassion and focus. As my attorney he reminded me that since there was a child involved it was not just about me or her. Because of the work Brian and his entire staff did on my behalf I was able to work out a mutual agreement that kept our child out of court and resolved our divorce with out a trial and it cost me much less then I had thought it would.

When we hired Brian Walters to handle our custody case, we knew we were making the right decision. Bryan and his staff are extreme communicative, straight forward and accessible. I appreciate the time and dedication they put into our case and helping my husband and I get full custody of my step daughter. Brian, Sheree, and Raya are amazing!!! We have hired him once again and I’m confident he will not let us down!

I came to Walters Gilbreath Law Firm hoping to find someone who I could trust to help me through the toughest time of my life - ending my marriage. What I found was that and much more. My attorney, Priyanka Bins, was a phenomenal partner in this fight. When you have to go through something as tiring as a divorce, you really need strong legal protection and a true partnership. She absolutely gave me just that and more. She was very patient, knowledgeable, very responsive and tireless in her effort to fight on my behalf. I highly recommend Mrs. Bins as an attorney during a tough time such as this. I hope I never need the services of a divorce lawyer again but if I do she will absolutely be my only choice.

With my case I was at a pure loss and didn't know who to trust who to believe nor who to spend my money on. First of all, the fact the staff (Sheree) called me back on weekend hours listened, educated me, and passionately informed me of the steps needed. I called to schedule my consultation, the information taken so effortlessly afforded the Attorney suitable information to advise me of my next steps. I will definitely be calling this firm back if needed after doing my part. I'm confident this firm is passionate about the law and doing what's right not all about collecting dollars and pushing paperwork. Thank you so much for making me feel confident in the justice system again.

Sincerely,

Now A Single Mother With Hope

I am a lawyer. I hired Robert Tsai to do some transactional work for me for my upcoming wedding and marriage. He had come highly recommended. I was very impressed with his professionalism and attention to detail. He brought to my attention things I had not even considered nor would have ever understood without his guidance. I will be sending all of my family law referrals to Robert, because I know any clients I refer are in good hands. Family law is not easy, and attention to detail is crucial. Robert is your go-to-lawyer when you need it done right.

Robert Tsai and his staff at Walters Gilbreath were incredible in handling my case. I heavily researched and conducted a thorough search for and interviewed with quite a few attorneys before choosing Robert, but within 10 minutes of our initial consultation I knew he was exactly what I needed and who I was looking for. He was smart, diligent and kept me up to speed during each step while promptly responding to all of my questions and concerns, even after my case ended. He was always very well prepared, and always one step ahead. I had very high expectations when I chose an attorney and Robert not only didn’t disappoint in any area during my case, but he exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend Robert Tsai and Walters Gilbreath to anyone seeking an attorney.

I have only good things to say about Brian Walters and his team. Mr. Walters was able to schedule my consultation quickly and advise me on what steps I needed to take. Brian took the appropriate actions regarding the filing and putting temporary orders in place. This was extremely helpful considering our short timeline to do so. Anytime I needed advice or had questions Brian was always there. Brian and his team have always shown me courtesy and respect. Mr. Walters does care about his clients. Brian is always calm, patient and steadfast, unlike some of the other attorneys I consulted. His relaxed, confident demeanor instills trust and he has demonstrated his trustworthiness throughout the process. You can hire a number of good attorneys in Houston at all price points, I chose Brian Walters because he is the best.

Mark Kidder

Went through a divorce that was complicated by a shared business with my ex. His initial consultation sold me as he gave me the best advice regarding how to divide and move forward with the jointly-owned business while protecting my share of assets. He was always available (especially by email early in the morning). He did an excellent job of keeping prices down by spending his time on the right strategy, and then he let his team of paralegals and junior attorneys execute the work (at very favorable rates). His no nonsense and pragmatic approach to challenges, and his rapid actions following, made me a raving fan of Brian Walters. I have and will continue to recommend him without hesitation. He is a true professional with an exceptional understanding of family and divorce law as this is his specialty. Rarely do attorneys get such glowing reviews, but Brian has earned this and deserves the accolades. Keep up the good work Brian and many thanks to you and your team for a job well done!

Brian, Jake, and all of their staff were professional, knowledgeable, encouraging, and engaged during my filing for divorce. They received and answered my texts promptly. The staff members were completely encouraging and organized. They play "by the rules", but are prepared to deal with opponents who do not. If you need a divorce, call up this firm! Their services and demeanor are first class.

Chaitanya Reddy

Brian handled my case impeccably and I recommend him in the strongest possible terms. In a complex case spanning multiple years and international litigation, his advice was always thorough, rational and sage. He keeps his cool through rough patches, and was available for the rare night/weekend/early AM calls without fail. You would not believe the number of calls and emails I exchanged with him, and he never made me feel like this was a bother in any way. His partners are also extremely professional and accessible. I should also mention that his billing is very fair and I felt the timekeeping was very accurate. He's your man if you ever need the help! Thanks Brian!

★★★★★

Jennifer Baer

I would highly recommend Brian Walters. What I most appreciated about him was his accessibility. In dealing with emotionally charged issues such as divorce and child custody, there were times when I wanted to talk to Brian immediately. He always responded in a timely manner and took my concerns seriously. He was honest, professional, and personable. His charges were high for my budget, but in the long run, I think he cost less than my previous attorneys because he did not "nickel and dime" me to death, and his well-thought-out strategy meant that the case was resolved in my favor and I was able to avoid the additional costs of court. Another benefit of hiring Brian is that you get his staff. It is so calming when going through a lawsuit to have a friendly and kind staff to assist and offer words of encouragement. After many hours of working with them, one almost feels like they have become friends, and this makes the lawsuit process so much more palatable.
★★★★★

Very professional team, and satisfactory experience overall, from the initial intake to the very last minute. Brian knows his business very well, and has a great understanding of what can or cannot be done; the team spent a lot of time responding to my questions and making sure I fully understand my situation and all options and possibilities in total transparency.
★★★★★

F.K.

Brian is an excellent, knowledgeable lawyer, who is an expert at family law. My divorce case was very complicated since it involved issues of international child abduction, and obtaining child custody. Brian helped me obtain sole managerial custody of my child—which is very difficult to achieve in Texas. Thanks to Brian, my child can live safely in the United States without fear of being abducted internationally.

I would also like to add that Raya has been extremely helpful. She studied my case in great detail and helped me understand the workings of mediation and all the options available to me.

I would highly recommend Brian and his law firm if you are involved in a complicated divorce case, especially one concerning child custody issues.
★★★★★

Brian Christiansen

Brian and his entire team exceeded expectations in every facet of my case. Responses to my many questions were immediately followed up with sound professional advice all the way to the end of the case.

His knowledge of divorce laws and documentation far exceeded the opposing attorneys, and I could not be any happier with the outcome.

I would highly recommend Brian Walters to anyone considering other attorneys. It really makes a great difference when you have a true professional with his knowledge on your side during these times.

Thank You

Matt Tyson

I've worked for and with Brian on several family law matters. His expertise in the area of complex divorces and community estates is unparalleled. While many attorneys are afraid of the courtroom, Brian is at home in front of both judges and juries. However, what really stands out about Brian is his almost constant availability for his clients. Whether it is before the sun rises or long after it has set, Brian is available by phone and email to answer all his clients' needs in a timely manner. If you're in need of excellent family law representation, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Brian Walters.
