What Our Clients Have To Say
Rare Breed Attorney
Sonya saved me in more ways than I can count. She was my THIRD lawyer, in a case that should have been simple and straight forward, yet was anything but, due to the high conflict, gas-light loving personality of my ex. Getting him to follow even temp orders became so exhausting, and my previous representation did little to find the depth and volume of his deceptions, adding much unnecessary time and exhaustion to the discovery process, and the entire case. Sonya created more movement in my case during the first month she came on than my previous lawyers had in nearly 2 years. I was not just a number to her, I was a human being. In many professions where there is extreme emotion, intense fear, frustration there comes a point where despite the reason one gets into the profession they chose, they must learn to disconnect to an extent- in order to be successful and effective in their career. It’s inevitable, and necessary. Unfortunately, this can make one seem dehumanized, especially in the field of law. I have no doubt that Sonya has a very successful career and reputation that will only continue to thrive in the future. And while necessary, I instinctively believe she is the Rare Breed Attorney who never disconnects more than necessary, and hangs on to that part inside her- the part that made her care as much as she did for me when no one else would, and got me through the darkest time in my entire life. Sonya went above and beyond in advocating for me multiple times, has the investigative skills of an FBI spy, and refused to relent until all the lies were flipped upside down, the hidden truths were revealed, and justice finally reached. If I had not found her, I don’t know if I could’ve gone through one more person, faced one more disappointing realization that I was merely a check to them. She was the only lawyer who actually prioritized accountability for my ex, relieving me of much stress I had been carrying https://www.avvo.com/attorney-reviews/75075-tx-sonya-jackson-4960170/review_confirmation/2060767 1/3 1/8/2021 Thanks -Awo for 2 years. Don’t let her sweet southern demeanor fool you into thinking she’s not a savage in the courtroom, or one to be challenged without substance. Sonya not only saved my sanity and helped me end this nightmare of a chapter in my life.., but she restored my faith in humanity, and belief that some people ARE truly, inherently good, and do intensely care about justice and healing. I advocate her with more stars than are possible to give- and strongly recommend her, especially if trust is hard to earn with you, or if you have been grossly disappointed by the indifference of others. Sonya is a rare gem I was SO lucky and blessed to find. Thank God for her. It’s because of her I have a chance to rebuild a new life again, and the capacity to do so.
Client, (Jan 2021)
I am sure that I can speak for both Cassie and me, when saying that we are extremely appreciative for all of the help Sharon provided in settling our divorce issues. You made the process as painless as possible. Happy 2017.
– Tyler H (February 2017)
Peace of Mind
I was deeply troubled about the situation I found myself and my young daughter in after my divorce. Sharon is confident and extremely competent, knew exactly what to do, and gave me peace of mind. At last, I had control over the situation! I highly recommend Sharon. She is EXACTLY what you need in a divorce attorney.

There Should Be More Like Her!
I’d seen enough to believe all attorneys were in it for the money and didn’t truly care about their clients at the end of the day, until I hired Sharon. She cares only for doing what is right, which is the most important thing. Her efforts, over years sticking with me through several legal/custody actions, helped me get the majority of the rights for my son. She listened to me, worked with me and trusted me, but that paled in comparison to all she did to help my son, who was her priority. I saw what a couple of well known lawyers would do for money versus doing right, and I wouldn’t trade Sharon for them or any attorney in North Texas.

Sharon Easley represented my company in a business deal. The other side did not even have a chance. Sharon is a bulldog that doesn’t give up the fight for what’s right for her clients. Her steadfast knowledge of courtroom proceedings and protocol was very comforting.
She is the heavyweight attorney you always wanted to walk into court with.
— Ron (March 2015)
Sharon Easley represented my child custody case several years ago and I was extremely impressed with her ethics, drive and motivation to make sure “the right thing happens.” Not only was she concerned with me as a person, but for the welfare of my children, too. I personally think she’s the best lawyer in Texas!
Thank you Sharon!

Sharon Easley Is Determined, Knowledgeable and Competent!
Ms. Easley has represented me in numerous matters for over 20 years. In each case, not all of which were family-related matters, Sharon fought doggedly and effectively to achieve the best possible result for my situation. Her fees were reasonable, in fact, far less than fees charged by other lawyers who have represented me in similar situations. She was also very available to discuss her charges and thoroughly explain the need for the particular service in my case.
Because of my high regard for her in business matters, I retained her to represent me in my own divorce, which she did very effectively. Most recently, I hired her on behalf of my son in a custody dispute over his then 3-year-old daughter. The case lingered for four years. Throughout that time, she continually advised my son as to what he needed to do to have the best chance of being awarded custody of his daughter. She stood by him when he was falsely accused of being physically abusive toward the mother. She guided him through the investigation when the mother falsely accused him of molesting his daughter. Eventually, she was able to prove that the mother’s boyfriend — not my son — was the guilty party. But for her perseverance and competent representation, my son would not have custody of his daughter today.
Those of us who watched her in the courtroom and listened to her as she comforted my son had a hard time reconciling both sides of her style. In the courtroom, she is tough, effective, direct, and a bulldog. When she was out of the courtroom and helping my son deal with his emotions, she was soft, comforting, encouraging and supportive. I can’t imagine an attorney doing a better job for her client than she did for my son and me throughout the years. I recommend Ms. Easley strongly to anyone who wants an attorney who will fight very hard to achieve the client’s goal and, in family law matters, do so with the best interest of the child or children guiding her at every step.

Sharon Easley Got Me Custody of My Son!
Sharon Easley recently represented me in a jury trial where I got custody of my 6-year-old son. She did an excellent job for me. She was prepared and was very confident and comfortable in the courtroom. I would recommend her to anyone who wants or needs a skilled and experienced attorney.

Excellent, Reliable and Professional Firm
I couldn’t be more satisfied with the service provided by this firm. When I needed help with my child custody problem, I asked around for referrals and [Sharon’s firm] was always the number one firm recommended, even by other firms I spoke to. I have used other attorneys in the past for the same issues I had now and they really did nothing to help me. They were paid and then relaxed and did very little. Many things were done incorrectly. I decided this time to spend just a small amount more money and hire the best attorney I could find in the Collin County area and that was Sharon Easley.
I am very, very happy with that decision. Everything has been handled with professionalism, sensitivity and efficiency. Sharon’s whole staff is very capable and whenever appropriate, Sharon would use a junior attorney to work on the case to keep the fees down. If you want something done right and it is important to you, I suggest going with the best. Why risk using anything less when you need results? Hiring the best is not necessarily more expensive because you will have your issue handled one time with no mistakes and not have to correct it later.
Sharon answered her phone and emails immediately on weekends, evenings and even when she was on vacation. And you may as well face the facts, most issues you encounter while going through this process don’t happen Monday-Friday from 9-5. Most of my issues would happen on a Friday night or over the weekend, and Sharon ALWAYS took my call. That was important to me. If I needed advice or anything from Sharon while she was in court on another case, her assistant could always contact her and she would get back to me with an answer usually within a couple of hours.
Sharon is accommodating and always has the child’s best interest in focus. I have never been misled. In fact, I everything happened almost exactly as they predicted. I was at ease during the whole proceeding because I had been prepared for what was going to happen.
Did this case cost me a lot of money? Yes. However, being on the losing end [before enlisting Sharon’s help] also cost a lot of money. The silver lining was that one of my children ran up and gave Sharon a hug after the ruling and both of my children have told me “thank you” for what I did to get them out of their former home with their mother and back home with me. That is worth any amount of money.
I know it is scary starting this type of battle, I just went through it. All I can tell you is to do what you think is best for the kids. I did it, and I live across the country and Sharon gave me my children back. My kids are now happy and loving and thankful that I did what I did by hiring Sharon Easley.

Outstanding In Court
If you’re looking for an attorney to handle a family law case in Collin County, look no further! I’ve worked with four different attorneys on my case in the past and Sharon has by far been the best. She’s outstanding in court, well prepared, and always looking out for the best interests of her client. I’ve also met other people over the last few years that have very high recommendations for Sharon as well. I can’t say enough about how well Sharon performs in the courtroom.

A Trustworthy and Caring Attorney Who Does What Is Right for Children First and Then Her Client
Sharon is an attorney who puts her clients’ best interests at heart, especially when there are children involved. She is known as a bulldog, but she definitely has that reputation because she wins and uses the right ways to win. Sharon does listen to what her clients have to say and want. There are rumors out there that she does things with wrongful intent, but if you check out those stories/rumors, you will see those are brought about by people who are on the losing side (not her side).
Sharon and her law firm are known for their integrity, honesty and family values. I would recommend her to anyone I know. In fact, I have. My case is a very difficult one and not one that is common. My children have been her main interest and then my well being. The children are innocent parties here, whereas I can look out for myself better than my children can. This is where Sharon and her team’s professionalism and concern come into play and far outweigh the competitors.
