Jessica, through out my entire dealings with her, has been immensely respectful, compassionate, positive and most importantly, thoroughly competent . She has far and away exceeded my expectations and In my opinion, has been the best attorney, hands down that I’ve ever worked with . In the future, she will be the first attorney that I will turn to when trusted advice is needed . Thank you Jessica, it has been a pleasure .

Jessica was the best attorney that I could have ask for during one of the darkest times of my life. She was totally there for me the entire process she answered all my questions, listened to me stress and freak. She definitely loves what she does and is all about her clients. The best part of this all is that I live in 45 mins south of Houston and she still showed up for me. She is dedicated to what she does and getting you what you want and need. I’d highly recommend her.

She was very helpful even when i need someone she was always there to listened and her assistant Scott is also great.

she always kept me up to date and informed on what was going on. She is caring person and look out for you as a client

A divorce is never easy especially when children are involved. I wanted an attorney who was professional, honest and always had me and my children’s best interest in mind. Jessica Worden is that attorney.

Jessica’s compassion and constant words of encouragement eased the worries and stress I had during my divorce.

Jessica and her paralegal, Scott Love, promptly returned all of my phone calls, text messages and emails.

I’m so grateful for Jessica and Scott guiding me through every step of the divorce process with such compassion and care.

I highly recommend The Worden Law Firm.

Jessica and her staff were very helpful to our son case. She was a very good listener and very patient with us. She took our case and thought it would be over in about 6 months but it wasn’t and she just kept on hanging in there with us. She is a fighter and can handle her self in a courtroom. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a good lawyer. She answered calls in the evening and on weekends and holidays. I know she has put plenty of hours in to my sons case and she has been understanding at every assist of the way. Men or Women if you need a GREAT lawyer please give her a call she will do everything in her power of law to help. Jessica and her team ROCKS.

Jessica Worden really came through for me! She was recommended by a trusted friend, so I took a chance and so glad I did. Jessica is extremely professional, organized, knowledgeable and a bulldog in court. She really cares about her clients and seeing justice served!

Jessica came along at a time in my life when I was in need of legal protection. She did a great job of keeping me abreast of what was happening in my situation and my options. I would surely recommend her to anyone going through a marital impasse!

Jessica handled my criminal and civil probate case for me. She kept me well advised on every bump and turn of my case. My civil and probate case was handled professionally and she even got my charges dismissed in the criminal case. I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer than Jessica. I would recommend her to anyone that may need a prudent effective lawyer that will get the job done as smooth and as quick as possible.

Family law matters are never easy. The system is difficult to navigate and can cause it of anxiety.

Jessica is a hard working, and very passionate attorney. It is something that becomes very clear right away when working with her.

She was able to negotiate a settlement where other attorney’s had been unable to. My ex was just not willing to compromise, but somehow Jessica was able to negotiate a resolution that was fair.

Family law sux for lack of a better word. It’s extremely emotional and it’s at times gets to be a rock throwing contest.

Jessica can handle the intensity of the situation, while helping you to stay grounded and informed.

I would highly recommend her for any legal issue.

I would like to preface my review with the fact that I understand Ms. Worden does not have an assistant and has multiple cases, a fact I knew before hiring her and was comfortable with because she assured me she would maintain frequent communication with me. That being said, hiring Jessica was possibly the worst decision I could have made and would have cost me my case had I not fired her and chosen to switch attorneys! My situation was pretty straightforward and in my first meeting with Jessica, she informed me that I had a strong case and that we could get everything wrapped up pretty quickly. In short, it took almost a month for her to even get all of the paperwork submitted to the court for my ex to be served, and even though I asked her to pay the process server out of my retainer, she failed to do so and I had to have my new attorney complete that task two months later. I scheduled an informal mediation with my ex and her attorney and when we showed up, Jessica had no idea what I wanted or was willing to negotiate, nor did she understand what I was comfortable with her agreeing and not agreeing to. She came into the situation completely unprepared and was an embarrassment when trying to negotiate. I would have been better off going to the mediation without her. Additionally, when we did FINALLY make it into court, Jessica hadn’t even filed all the necessary paperwork for us to speak in front of the judge and she claimed that her “advisor/mentor” told her the paperwork was “unnecessary in this situation.” Long story short, she made herself and me look like idiots in the eyes of the court AND INCURRED $1,000 IN ATTORNEY’S FEES from the other side because she caused my ex’s attorney to have to work overtime to get ready for court all over one piece of paper! She told me afterwards that she would pay the $1,000 because it was her fault, for which I was grateful, but it didn’t make up for her lack of knowledge and organization, nor the continual delay. Over the next few weeks, Jessica was almost impossible to get in touch with. I would send her emails with questions about what I should do as my child was in a very volatile environment at my ex’s house and five to six days would go by without a word or email back from her. I was trying to set up another hearing and I ended up calling her incessantly just to get an answer from her about anything! I ended up having to take matters into my own hands and called EVERYONE I possibly could to try and get some help with my situation (i.e. CPS, DFPS, the AG, APD) but they all told me I had to go through my attorney. After a continued issues at my ex’s and almost a week passing without any word from Jessica about what I should do, I decided to hire another attorney and it was the best decision of my life. My advice to anyone would be this: if you’re debating about whether to hire a less-expensive lawyer or not, go the more expensive route and avoid Jessica Worden. While she may be helpful in extremely simple situations, if there is even a hint of complexity to your case, Jessica can’t handle it. She’s too busy, has no help, and is too unorganized and over-burneded with cases to devote her full attention to yours. My new attorney even had extreme difficulty getting in contact with her to transfer my file and belongings over. I still haven’t received all of the materials I gave her for the case and my new attorney eventually had to reach out to my ex’s attorney to even get all of the documents that had passed between them throughout the case (also embarrassing). I learned the hard way and wasted $2,200 and almost lost my case. Learn from my mistake and find a way to pay a more capable and experienced custody lawyer.
