I can’t say thank you to Jeff, Chloe, and Lupe at Johnson, Loyd & Schmitz, PLLC enough. Jeff’s skillful practice in the courtroom, cognizant strategies to decrease financial burdens, and everyone’s time and diligence in preparation have been amazing. They always answer phone calls and emails with a quick and knowledgeable response. The whole office has been very kind and empathetic towards me despite my sometimes exhausted and emotionally wrecked communications. The whole group shows that they truly care and fight for their families. I can’t recommend this group enough. So very thankful for them!!

A few months ago I found myself to be a target of the one of the most oppressive and powerful entities in the Texas government- The Office of the Attorney General- Child Support Division. This out of control entity has little to no oversight and is empowered to wreck lives with NO REPERCUSSIONS. I tried to find someone in the OAG management to help correct the situation but that only escalated the attack against me and my livelihood. They seized my bank accounts and and placed liens against my property. Fortunately for me I turned to the law firm of Johnson, Loyd and Schmitz. Mr. Johnson put together a legal plan of action and moved quickly to provide relief to my situation. I put my trust and future into his hands, and just as David slew the Mighty giant Goliath-so Mr Johnson brought the mighty Office of the Attorney General to its knees. My life and property are now secure from improper confiscation and harassment from this entity. Thank you Mr Johnson you were truly a God send when my future was bleak at best. A grateful client, Larry Morris

I recently was looking for a family law attorney and sent in a request for consultation with Johnson, Loyd, & Schmitz. I was contacted by Jeff who was amazing. He wasn’t pushy and he was extremely personable. He guided me and gave me the advice I needed. I would recommend anyone to call on this team if they are in need of legal services. Thank you guys and if I need any legal services again I will be coming back!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

What should I plan to have prepared prior to my initial consult?

Not much is expected in preparation for your initial consultation. Consulting with an attorney is largely about discussing the factual basis of your case in order to determine if you have a case and if the lawyer is a good fit for it. Finding an attorney, especially one who will be handling critical matters for you and your family, can seem like a daunting task. However, we believe that your initial consultation with one of our attorneys will leave you confident that we will prioritize your case and communicate effectively.

Do I need a lawyer if my divorce is uncontested?

A truly uncontested divorce is fairly rare. An agreement that the marriage should end does not equal an uncontested divorce. In order for a case to be uncontested, the parties must be in agreement about the division of every piece of property, which often requires disclosures that the parties do not have without the intervention of competent counsel. The parties must also be in absolute agreement about all of the legal rights, possession and access, and support obligations that the parties will accept for children of the marriage. Hiring an attorney to ensure that your court order is effective and enforceable is always worth the upfront investment.

Will I get attorney’s fees from my spouse or ex?

It is always possible that the Court will award attorney’s fees to one party or the other and we typically always make that request to the Court. In a divorce, it is common for the community assets to cover attorney’s fees. There are some cases that relate specifically to children where an award of attorney’s fees is mandatory. However, it is never guaranteed. Speak to your attorney about the potential and likelihood of an award of attorney’s fees.

Should I file for divorce or conservatorship before my spouse?

There are some inherent benefits to being the Petitioner in any case. You have the opportunity to put on your case first and sometimes that can help your attorney to put on your best case. If your spouse or ex has already filed, it is important that you reach out and obtain competent counsel quickly, so that you do not miss any necessary deadlines.

Can I change lawyers if I already have a lawyer in place?

You have the absolute right to the counsel of your choice. Typically, you can choose to change your attorney at any point in time during a case. An attorney-client relationship is just that, a relationship. If the relationship with your current counsel has broken down for any reason, you should seek to replace that counsel with someone that you trust. It is important to note that any contractual obligations you have to pay your prior counsel are not terminated with a change of counsel.
