Texas Advocacy Project Staff
A client who received Assisted Pro Se services-
"Thank you" barely begins to describe how appreciative I am for the work you've done. You have helped me get a peaceful ending to a very rocky marriage. I never thought I would be in an abusive marriage and also never thought I would have the courage to get out Because of you I did "get out" legally and can now be myself again. Thank you so very much for your patience in answering my questions and your guidance through all of the legal documentation and proceedings. I know that, yes, I represented myself in my divorce but I did not do it on my own and for that I am truly grateful. Thank you for all of your help with getting my maiden name back and most importantly getting my life back. (Name withheld to protect the confidentiality of the client.)
