"I can't imagine that going through a divorce is ever easy, but have to say that working with Anita, this process was as painless as it could possibly be in my situation (which was a difficult one, as my husband and I were not in agreement on how to proceed or split our marital assets). Anita is knowledgeable, experienced, and understood the nuances and needs of my individual case, helping craft a divorce agreement that took into consideration my feelings and preferences, versus taking a "one size fits all" approach." She combines the utmost professionalism -- reflected even in the smallest details like responding promptly to email or calls -- with warmth and caring. I really felt like I wasn't going through this difficult and upsetting experience alone, but was reassured that I'd get through this, with matters resolved fairly for both parties -- my ultimate goal. Anita was firm but always completely courteous in her communications with the opposing consul, which I noticed and appreciated, and feel helped minimize "back and forth" and expedite a satisfactory conclusion. I would recommend Anita very highly to anyone who finds themselves needing a divorce attorney."
"I came to Anita very scared and confused, was facing filing a divorce, something no one ever thinks they will do. Her compassion and knowledge were evident from our first contact and carried strong throughout the entire process. She was respectful with my financial situation and fought long and hard (unfortunately longer than was ever necessary due to the opposing party not cooperating). In the end it was worth every penny spent and I would not hesitate to do so again. She won me a settlement that was fair beyond compare, and something I absolutely never could have negotiated on my own. When feelings are running high it is sometimes difficult to stand up to an aggressive ex-spouse and protect yourself, however having attorney intervention can make the whole process more comfortable. I have the comfort of knowing that everything was handled properly in the eyes of the law, completely, and with court support. Anita was also supportive of me personally, having an uncanny knack of knowing when I needed a little personal reassurance and showing a sense of humor, while all the time maintaining complete professionalism. This was an invaluable bonus that I never expected to find. I hated every step of my divorce, and am working on healing now, but will never forget or regret my decision to call and obtain professional help. If there is the least bit of conflict in a family law case, and I suspect that would be most of the time, I cannot encourage anyone enough to reach out and obtain proper representation. Doing it right, having support and legal advice, and knowing that you are not alone allows you to sleep at night. I have referred several people personally to Anita, and would highly recommend her services."
"I hired Anita AFTER I had already been through the ringer in my divorce being represented by one of the "best" divorce firms in Dallas. For what I paid HALF for with my prior firm, Anita handled my case and got me what I needed (in property AND custody) in a timely manner. Anita was honest about what the good points and weak points were in my case and she gave me a realistic idea of what I could expect during the divorce negotiations and during the trial. I would absolutely recommend Anita to anyone considering a divorce or custody lawsuit."
"I first came to Anita to handle my divorce. She was very responsive and good about getting things moving quickly. My divorce went smooth and painless and the fees were very reasonable. I have since, hired Anita again to help me with a separate family law matter which she has been very helpful with and I am seeing the same results. I would recommend her to any one needing a divorce/family law attorney! Thanks Anita!"
"From her very first words on a Sunday afternoon phone call, Anita was the personification of sensitivity and intelligence, personal concern and total professionalism. I'd hired her because of her training in collaborative law, but my ex-wife's attorney, unfortunately, was a loudmouthed bully who had no interest in an amicable collaboration. Nevertheless, Anita conducted herself always with civility and concern for the real victim in my divorce -- my 9-year-old daughter. Having been through a difficult divorce herself and the mother of a girl my daughter's age, her insight and humor bolstered me in the worst of moments and lightened my emotional burdens considerably. Yes, I could have hired a bully like my ex-wife did, but we might yet still be at war, at great financial and psychological damage to myself and my daughter, but I was blessed to find the magnificent Anita Cowley-Savage. Her essential humanity helped get me through one of the worst times of my life."
"Anita is good lawyer who tries to understand the bigger picture and her client. She spends a lot of time then working out a solution to a problem with her client. She is very comfortable as long as the solution works out with her client rather than have her own motive of money or success. She is not the "charge for every word" kind of lawyer. I was very satisfied with her professionalism and her knowledge. Would highly recommend."
"When you have to go through hell & back (in other words…a divorce and/or custody battle), you want someone equipped & experienced to handle that long hard battle ahead. You want someone on your side that you can trust. Anita is not only trustworthy, she is also very smart, savvy, tough and professional. One of the most difficult things anyone could ever go through is a divorce and/or custody battle. Going through a traumatic experience such as this often leaves one in a state of grief and shock. Anita takes some of the pain out by doing all the stressful dirty work to fight for what you want and is very successful doing it. She not only succeeded in getting me what I asked, but even managed to get me MUCH, MUCH more than I was EVER expecting. I was willing to settle for a lowered amount of child support from my ex to ensure that the decision to allow me to raise my son would be easier, (even though this is not about the money, it’s the fact that she is EXTREMELY capable of getting everything you want), but because the other party wanted to be difficult, she ended up going before the judge and getting me WAY more than I expected. My case was a modification case, and I’ve heard horror stories about trying to get that overturned. The state of Texas wants there to be significant substantial and material changes to the situation before they consider it a reason to change. (In other words, “If it ain’t broke…don’t fix it!”) And even though there was enough negative points to bring up, I still was not sure if I had enough to show significant “CHANGES”! Anita knew exactly what to present to the court that helped turn this around. She knew what the court would be looking for that would give them reason to change. Up until Anita, my previous experience with lawyers, were not positive at ALL! They were the kind of lawyers everyone jokes about – the blood-sucking, greedy, evil, heartless kind that will take you for every penny you have. My few, but horrible encounters with lawyers, left me believing that it was impossible to find one that truly has your best interest in mind! Anita COMPLETELY restored my faith that good lawyers really DO exist! She always worked with me on payment, was very understanding, very reasonable in price and always seemed to take care of my needs. When it came time to draft up the orders for court, she took EVERYTHING I wanted into consideration. She even added details to things that I didn’t even think to ask, but would’ve if I had thought to. Things that saves me the headache and heartache of future disagreements and fighting due to “gray” areas. She even tried to make it a fair and reasonable solution for the opposing party. (I say tried, because the opposing party wasn’t very willing to work with us.) She was able to keep the process as quick and painless as possible. She is super intelligent, sympathetic towards your needs, trustworthy, hard working, results-driven, aggressive and resourceful. Whether she knows this or not, she has seriously changed my life (more or less). I no longer have to worry about a vengeful ex having complete and total control over my life and my son’s! My son doesn’t have to worry about being used as a pawn and can now begin the healing process. The first step in getting your life back together and making positive changes in your life is hiring a good lawyer! Hiring Anita, was the best and easiest decision I ever made! We can now look towards the future with a bright disposition and without fear of constant stress and drama."
"Anita handled my divorce, and made it as painless as possible with tremendous integrity. She was completely professional but with a gracious personal touch. She is kind, extremely timely and efficient, and really listened to me and adhered to my wishes. Her advise was always excellent, and she even helped me to save money. I highly recommend her."
"I cannot say enough good things about Anita Savage. I hired her to obtain a temporary restraining order against my ex-husband for the protection of my children and me. What began as TRO, evolved into an actual modification of the parent-child relationship order. While I realize that not all cases are the same and that a modification is rare when dealing with a TRO, Anita was able to successfully argue it on my behalf. She also did an excellent job of helping me to understand the law and set expectations for possible outcomes as well as keep my emotions about the case in check. I was referred to Anita by a friend and I am so glad to have found her."
"My husband and I were entering into a nasty child custody battle together to assume Primary Custody of his minor child. Anita Savage is a honest, diligent, and most importantly thorough attorney. I say this because she was straight forward and knows the law. Anita was a blessing to my families child custody battle because she restored hope and confidence in our case after our previous attorney completely gave us a run for our money. Anita also has one of the best paralegal's that an attorney could ever ask for. Thank you Tyra. We often felt that we had two attorneys working on our side. My husband and I could call and ask any question to either of these ladies and get an open and honest answer at anytime. I appreciate them for preparing us for what one can expect a child custody case in a way that anyone could understand. They do not make you feel uncomfortable like many attorneys can easily do. Anita asks question to both her client and to the opposing party that deliver what needs to be noted to the judge and will reveal the truth to all. We all know how difficult it is to be awarded Primary Custodian of a child for a father and this attorney represented our case and helped us win. Another important fact is that this case consisted of each biological parent living in different states ... AND WE PREVAILED in our Temporary Hearing!! I am blessed to have found Anita and Tyra. They were heaven sent and will definitely seek their guidance if necessary in the future. Anita's rates are incredibly affordable and competitive with the surrounding competition. I really appreciate her for offering some of her services at a flat rate, because a great affordable attorney is one of a kind. I can not thank Anita and Tyra enough!!"
"Anita is the best! Great in the courtroom. She took my case for child custody and divorcee. She was able to reassured me I had a strong case. I thought I didn't due to my disability. She proved to be right. My soon to be ex husband tried to get full custody of our daughter . Anita discredit his saying I was unfit. I was given status quo and our daughter is with me he was given visitation. Anita also was able to get me back child support something she added and I had not thought of and it was granted by the judge.I was also awarded things in commune with my ex husband . Anita worked with my finances so that I'd be able to hire her services. It was worth every penny. She was always quick to respond when Icontacted her. She's no nonsense and straight to the point. Does not talk around situations. She tells it like it is and talks with much experience. I'm fortunate to have met Anita and that she was on my side of the table."
"I will always be grateful to Anita and her team for their concern, knowledge and patience during a very difficult time in my life. They were always available and went beyond any expectations to make sure I was being protected. They gave me strength when I didn't have any and a voice when I wasn't being heard. Thank you to everyone who was part of my divorce case. Thank you so much Anita, Tyra and Larry for your hard work and not being afraid to take on any challenge that came your way."
"She represent my boyfriend in a child support an visitation rights. He is so thankful for her services she did more than what we expect. She treat us with respect and she is a very honest person. We thank GOD for her"
"Attorney Anita Savage has shown me that we still have attorneys who are really committed to professionalism, no matter whose ox is gored. With the experience I had with my previous lawyer, the divorce proceedings with ex-turned into a big debacle. This made me wonder how a learned counsel will guide his or her client into such an unpalatable and disastrous mess. It was Attorney Anita Savage that turned this darkness into light through her wise guidance, counsel and representation. Since I hired Attorney Anita Savage, she speedily and correctly moved to clean up the mess created by my previous lawyer. Attorney Anita restored my unflinching trust in the American justice system by bringing my ex-wife to justice when she nipped her orchestrated and nefarious attempt to hijack my children. Attorney Savage effectively stopped her from taking the law onto her hand through a carefully crafted grand scheme plan to dispossess me of my children. Attorney Anita made her understand that lawlessness has no place in this society and that due process must always be followed especially when one is trying to seek legal protection of any kind. I am affirming that Attorney Anita is the most experienced lawyer I have ever come across in my life. She was very powerful and forceful in presenting her argument to the judge. In fact, I have watched many legal proceedings and have not seen any lawyer so experienced and committed on his or her profession like Attorney Savage. If you are looking for an attorney or if the attorney currently representing you is not doing the job that you wished or hoped for, you have a choice NOW in Attorney Anita Savage. I am recommending her to YOU and I will not hesitate to recommend her to anyone seeking justice, especially in divorce and custody cases. You will have the represwntation that you deserved and hope for. I can attest to her ingenuity and professional excellence."
"I started my work with Anita as a client and ended as a friend. I love her to death. I have been around the block a time or two with Lawyers of all types and in all sorts of situations. Trust me, when the S... hits the fan you want someone at your side that cares more about you than themselves. Anita is that person and the exception to every greedy gut Lawyer I have had the opportunity to work with in my past. She is above all, kind and considerate. Anita truly cares about the client and an outcome that effects the innocent children caught in the middle of adult mistakes. If Anita ever called on me for help of any kind I am sure I would be one of many that would line up for the honor of doing so."
I can't say enough good things about Anita. She is knowledgeable, action oriented and approaches things head on. I had a horrible experience with another attorney in my Divorce and custody case and turned to Anita as a last resort really. I was afraid to switch attorney in the middle of a case and actually felt like it may be too late. Anita returned my call right away (VERY early in the morning) and I knew from that point she was going to be the right choice. Long story short I had hired a different attorney at the start of my case due to my thoughts that it would not be a difficult case at all. I did not do much checking around and boy was that a BIG mistake. I came to Anita with what I thought was a mess and there were actually actions that needed to be taken in a day and she pulled it off. She helped stop something that was going to happen (against the Rule 11 agreement between me and my wife regarding our children). I had NO time and Anita knew exactly what to do. My former attorney had already spent a week researching things! We quickly got my case back on track and then turned things around the way they should have been. I feel like we got much closer to a satisfactory resolution only because of the work and effort Anita put in. I can't thank her enough for what she did for me and my kids. Divorce and custody issues are very difficult and draining. Anita kept me well informed and answered all my questions and took action right away when needed. She listened and told me the facts straight out and gave me options. Her confidence and real advice were exactly what I needed. She was Fair and always gave me the straight story. I do not think Anita will ever know truly how much she positively impacts peoples lives. I do not want to think of what things would be like had I not searched and found her to represent me. She really cares and worked very hard for me. We had some time sensitive issues that she even worked well "after hours" and drew up agreements on the spot to finalize things. I could not have asked for a more confident and trustworthy attorney. After having the complete opposite experience I learned how important it was to have the right attorney in these matters. Anita was certainly the right one. Please do your research and select the best attorney for you and your needs. The little things matter and the experience Anita has coupled with her genuine caring for her clients will make all the difference. I highly recommend you speak to her if you find yourself in the unfortunate position of having to go through divorce or custody issues.
"I was referred to Anita Savage by a friend. My first experience with her, made me feel confident in her ability and made me able to relax about my pending divorce. Anita Savage is a good listener, is able to understand complex issues, and always gave me excellent advice. I appreciate her straight forward approach and was a little sad, after my case was settled, when she said good bye and she "Hope never to see you again". I realize that was the appropriate thing considering my case, but I still felt like I was losing a friend."
"I have worked as a mediator, collaborative coach and facilitator on a number of cases involving this attorney. I also worked actively and regularly in a professional organization with her, The Rocky Mountain Collaborative Law Professionals, for a substantial period of years. I highly respect her professionalism, legal knowledge, and caring representation. I strongly endorse this lawyer's work, and highly recommend her as an attorney."
"I endorse this lawyer. Her professionalism and knowledge of Texas family law enabled her to vigorously advocate for her client while her high ethical standards helped bring peace to a troubled situation."
"Anita Savage knows family law. I worked with her at a firm in Dallas and came to know her as an aggressive advocate for her clients who works hard to achieve positive results."
"Anita and I have worked together and she really knows the ins and outs of family law. As a greenhorn she taught me a lot. You will surely walk out of her office with a feeling that your matter is being given a great amount of attention. I endorse this lawyer with confidence."
"I highly recommend Anita Cowley Savage. We had a very difficult case and were able to find creative solutions that were in both of their interests. Anita is collaborative, professional and highly skilled in family law."
I endorse this lawyer. Anita is a true professional . She represents her client with skill and wisdom.Anita knows the law, and uses that knowledge to her client's advantage. It is a fortunate party who has Anita as his or her lawyer!
"Ms. Savage is highly skilled and very professional in dealing with complex child custody and divorce matters."
