Best Family Law Lawyer

“I’m so happy after my experience working with Elizabeth. After my first meeting with her, Elizabeth understood and respected my needs. Being an out of state and seeking child visitations proved challenging, but Elizabeth has set the expectations through the entire process. Elizabeth always had my best interest at hand and always well informed me on issues and progress. During the whole process, Elizabeth kept an aggressive pace to get the end and did successfully. I am very happy with the outcome and highly recommend Elizabeth to everyone who needs a Family Law lawyer in the city of Austin. I really appreciate Elizabeth’s professional and all her hard work. Thank you, Elizabeth and the entire team at Evans Family Law.”

Highly recommend! Custody Modification

“Shortly after retaining Evan’s Law Firm for my custody modification, Elizabeth Drake joined their team. She was instrumental in my case. I felt like she not only cared about helping me as a person, but she was highly professional, detailed oriented and was able to explain to me the ins and outs of my legal process every step of the way. She was easy to reach and always available to answer a last-minute question if needed. She also took the time to get my agreed order just right and explained the technicalities and legal processes in a way I could easily understand and therefore, make an educated decision. Ms. Drake and Mr. Evan’s make a formidable team and I think Ms. Drake is an incredible asset to your team. I highly recommend Ms. Drake and Evan’s Law Firm. Best in town by far!”

“During the Covid-19 Pandemic my daughter was on her visitation in Texas I am here in California and was having a hard time getting her back. Elizabeth and Selina helped me get all the necessary documents I needed to obtain my daughter in this crisis. I have to say I was so scared to hiring a lawyer from afar but they made me feel like I had somebody that had my back and I didn’t have to fight alone. This whole process they made it so comforting and helped me through a nightmare of a time. They were professional and did everything quickly. If I was to ever need a attorney again I would use them.”
