Clare and Danika at Modern Family law were great! They was thorough, they were fast and they were on top of it. They also made sure to help educate me in areas that may have not been as clear to me going in. I would highly recommend them. They are true advocates for father’s rights.

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience working with Austin Modern Family Law firm team to work through court cases that I needed handled. I retained Clare Mattione through a prior firm and I was so pleased with her professionalism and expertise that I continued to retain her services while she transitioned to her new firm, Modern Family Law. Clare was clear, concise, and provided timely communication during the course of about a two-year trial. Clare met my needs, provided guidance and navigated the legal field with expertise.Danika Moran was also very helpful with filing and requesting documents and communications during the trial. Everything was handled in a timely manner and with the utmost professionalism.Overall I was throughly pleased with my experience and would highly recommended the Austin Modern Family Law Firm & would once again like to thank Clare for representing my family and I during our case.

When looking for a law firm that could help with the case of my siblings and I, I didn’t really know where to look. As soon as I reached out to the Modern Family Firm I was greeted by my lawyer Jasmine Bhatt, she right away made me feel understood and welcomed. My lawyer and her paralegal Danika Moran made the process of my case very stress free. I appreciate all their help and definitely recommend them to anyone that needs help with family cases! 😊

My attorney Clare Mattione was fantastic. She is very knowledgeable and definitely knew the law as it pertained to my case . When I had questions she answered them promptly and made sure I understood each point before moving on. Extremely professional but also very understanding and compassionate toward my situation. It was a slow moving case but Clare made sure to keep things moving forward and always kept me up to date on the status of my case. She worked with Danika Moran, who was equally amazing, and handled my case with care. We just wrapped it up and I could not have been happier with the team and experience I had with both of them. Would absolutely recommend Clare to anyone in need of her services.

J. and Jessica were kind, compassionate, and caring. I was 100% comfortable discussing my situation and they made me feel safe. While I hope not many people have to go through the pain of a divorce, these folks are great if you have to!

Working with J. Riggs at Modern Family Law during my divorce was a blessing. We never met in person but that didn't prevent us from connecting in a way that made me feel that he was looking out for my interest and not just going along the process in a cookie cutter way. They explained the steps of what to expect before and as it was taking place and really made the divorce as stress free as you can get when going through a divorce. Thank you J!

Went through a messy divorce and Clare was able to get a good amount of my possessions back including my vital documents like birth certificate and SSN card which he had refused to give back. It wasn’t a fun process but I was very pleased with her help! Clare was very attentive to my needs, guided me through the court process, and helped me set realistic expectations for outcomes. Thank you again.

J. and the team were really great to deal with! He was super responsive anytime I had any questions and easy to get a hold of. Dealing with lawyers is generally never a fun thing to do, but J. made the experience pleasant and I really felt like I was in good hands. Thank you again!

Going through a divorce and custody was not fun but J. got me through it. The whole team was responsive and knowledgeable about how the custody process worked and what I needed to do to get custody of my children. My first attorney (different law firm) charged a low retainer, so I thought I was getting a deal, but they quit on me when a bigger case came along! Modern Family Law was experienced and they were up front with me about costs and what I should expect from them. For the experience they gave and how responsive they were, they were worth every penny!!
