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!
