I hired Mr. Cantu three days before a scheduled deposition. It was very last minute but he said he would take my case and meet me at the deposition. I showed up early and Mr. Cantu was sitting there waiting for me! Mr. Cantu fights for you. Yes, he does have a lot of cases but it’s because he is really good at winning, which is the end goal.

Mr. Cantu kept me informed on my case and would also advise according to his experience and network. In network as in who he has established a good, professional relationship with. Mr. Cantu knows the DFW family court system and he maintains a good reputation with the courts. I trust Mr. Cantu and his team with my family and my family and I are together today because of his efforts and willingness to never give up even when I wanted to at times.Alvie McNair


Absolutely amazing attorneys! I had been trying to get joint custody of my son for over 7 years. One year ago, I was referred to Cantu Law and met Chris and Willie Cantu. They were the first attorneys I had ever met that truly listened to me and understood the pain and struggle I’d faced as it is almost impossible to get a change of custody as a father in Texas…almost unheard of actually. Chris and Willie fought for me, gave me some hard truths with love and fought for me like I was part of their family! They had no “agendas” and they only cared about getting me more time with my son. And finally, the Judge CHANGED custody and I now have true joint custody! What every other attorney told me was impossible became possible with Chris and Willie! I can never repay them for changing my life but more importantly, giving my son the chance to spend as much time with his father as his mother! -Clint K.Clint Konkle


Chris Cantú took my case 30 min before final trial, went in, and helped me completely win my case. I got more than I asked for in the process and I feel that he did not disrespect my ex wife in any way, rather, he ensured that my daughter had her father in her life. He saved my butt with little preparation in front of a district judge! 9001 stars!Boyd Ocon


Willie and Chris are awesome!! They helped me win my case, winning custody of my kids and also I was awarded the house!! It was a long process, but well worth it!! I highly recommend their law firm for divorce and custody cases!! Thank you so much Willie and Chris!! You guys ROCK!! ~ Cynthia CortezCYNTHIA CORTEZ


If I could rate Willie and his staff 10 stars, I absolutely would! Willie along with Chris, Ben, and Diana have taken care of my custody issues numerous times and have never failed to deliver me a positive result. Being a father in a custody case was though, but Willie made the whole process seaming less. Willie’s passion for helping others along with his knowledge and tenacity in court is why you need him on your side. Letting my previous attorney go and hiring Willie is the reason why I was able to obtain sole custody of my two daughters. If you’re looking for a team with a track record of success, Cantu & Associates is where you need to go!Fernando Gutierrez


They were awesome , the staff very friendly.I was scared and very stressed regarding my custody situation and the fear of losing my child .I was recommended the cantu law firm by a friend of mine,she said i would not be disappointed.This was sooo true to the word .I felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders I couldnt have been more satisfied with the outcome . Thank you Chris Cantujean alonso


I had two trials that Willie and his team handled, both civil trials and they won both. We had a very difficult civil suit business case with one of the biggest law firms in Dallas. It lasted over the course of 2 years and we had constant communication with Willie and all his team during that time. Willie handled the case very professionally and was prepared with everything during the whole process from beginning to end. I recommend Willie and his team to everyone I know. As a business owner we know we can count on his firm to handle any of our future legal matters.Arleen Macias


The Cantu law firm took my case that went on a span of five years. It was a custody case that turned into a criminal case due to the mother making false allegations. Not only did we win the criminal case with a NO BILL we won custody in the process as well. His team is very detail oriented and investigate thoroughly. There was not one single hearing in 5 years that his team was not only prepared for but we won every time! They always treated me with the utmost respect as well as my family through all the hard times. They treated me and my family just like family even to this day I can call or text Willie at any point and time and gives me advise or just checks on my family and I! I’m not sure how any negative information that is put on here could possibly be true if they ever were actually a client. I would definitely recommend the Cantu law firm and have recommended to numerous people!Aaron lane


Cantu Law Office helped me with my divorce. Willie and Chris take the time to understand each individual case. They are supportive and provided exactly the legal representation I was looking for. Highly recommended.Nestor Aceituno


Everything went smoothly with my divorce just as he explained, would take place. Recommended my family member, she got her divorce here too.Gd Paulzj1130


My experience with Willie overall has been excellent. He is an expert in this profession and thus far has given me a desirable return on my investment. Willie makes my former lawyer look like a novice lawyer and certainly holds his own against the opposing counsel. I would not hesitate to recommend Willie Cantu to anyone I know. Regarding the money, I think he’s very fair in his pricing and terms of retaining his services.David Akina


(Translated by Google) Delighted with this very professional lawyer his job and very friendly staff. (Original) Encantada con este abogado muy profesional su trabajo y muy agradable personal.Danielle Duran
