I thought my life was over. I was charged with raping my girlfriend in high school. For three years I faced a rape case I was not guilty of. Mr. Polland and his team fought hard and trusted me. They followed up every lead, talked to the witnesses, and never quit. I finally got to go to trial and was acquitted...
Using another lawyer, I lost custody of my child in court. That lawyer failed to explain to the Judge why I was the better parent or point out that the father was not credible. I fired my previous attorney and hired Mr. Polland ...a smart, aggressive attorney. Less than four months later, I got a new trial. We ultimately won the case and I kept my child'. Quite frankly, it never would have happened without Mr. Polland and his outstandmg legal abilities. I fhanlc God every day I was lucky enough to find him and hire him.
“Thank you for your hard work as (counsel) for my kids over the years. We appreciate your dedication to Texas children.”
