William Scazzero is a great asset to HBWV, LLP! He has helped my family more than once with our real estate related issues. He is great with communication and explaining things in detail. William will always be our first call as our real estate attorney. Thank you again for all your help!

– Justin Bays

I have only worked with William Scazzero, however I can say that if all the attorneys at Hayes, Berry, White and Vanzant are like him you will be in great hands. William “Billy” is outstanding. He is a no-bull guy that will help understand the situation you may be in with a straight forward and down-to-earth directness. I prefer this type of individual and if you do too, I highly recommend him and this firm!

– Mark Bellehumeur

Mr. Kruger was easy to work with and was very helpful throughout my legal process. His team was great. Hope I never need the help again but if I do I will use him again. Thanks for all the help.

– Robert D.

After being granted a well deserved judgment in Small Claims Court, the defendant chose to appeal to a higher court. This caused me to require legal representation. After several days of calling law offices, the common theme was, “we are too busy.” I was thoroughly discouraged, as I had an upcoming court date. A very nice Paralegal at one of the firms that couldn’t help me gave me a referral to Hayes, Berry, White & Vanzant. I called and was given an appointment the next day with Attorney Kenneth Ferguson. Due to his efforts, I received the funds I was due from the Defendant. Kenneth Ferguson is kind, knowledgeable and is very enthusiastic about his profession! I wholeheartedly recommend Kenneth Ferguson, Hayes, Berry, White and Vanzant. An additional thanks to all of their fabulous support staff!

– Patricia O’Connell

Kenneth Ferguson is an outstanding attorney and a true professional. His expertise, commitment, and genuine concern were evident throughout the entire process. I am immensely grateful for his legal prowess and highly recommend him.

– Randy

I’m very happy with this firm. Highly recommend. Mr. Scazzero and his assistant Amy did a great job. They handled every step of the way in a professional and timely manner. Always responded to our questions and sent me updates on the case as needed. Other than that they were very independent so that I could sit back and let them do their job. I also commend their perseverance as our opponent made it a point to drag the process out. Mr. Scazzero stayed on top of her the whole time and cinched the deal as soon as possible. Hopefully we won’t need an attorney again any time soon, but if we do we will definitely be back.

– Anja Kring

I recommend the Hayes, Berry, White & Vanzant law firm. Ryan Bennett is a great attorney to work with.

He made me feel comfortable to talk about my case with him. If you need help and going through a battle, definitely reach out to Ryan Bennett.

I had an issue with a contractor who took liberties with his contract. I contacted H,B,W,& V, to help resolve these differences in which they were most successful.

Kirsten Bode and Kristina are totally awesome to work with for a divorce. I went to the office in tears because my husband had broken my hand and my heart to the point of no return. They worked hard to get my divorce completed from a spouse who procrastinated the whole time. But it is done and I highly recommend this group and this attorney.

– Margaret Hickman

Brian Tackett and his paralegal Renita Murphy did a good job of jumping right into my case. Very detailed oriented and always stayed in communication with me via email, phone and in person.

I’m so grateful I chose to hire Ms. Bode, and I would recommend her without hesitation again and again!

– Amy Hunter

Kirsten Bode – Amazing Divorce attorney and staff! I don’t know that anyone can say divorce was fun. Kirsten and Kristina were absolutely amazing, helpful, and supportive. There are not enough words to explain how professional, personable, understanding, and kind they both were. Kirsten was so dedicated to my case that she still made sure she was at mediation even while dealing with a personal issue. They are a god send and I will forever been grateful that I chose Kirsten. Towards the end of my divorce my case had to be transferred to another attorney, Brian Tackett, with the group. I was very happy with him as well. I got the same treatment with him as I did with Kirsten. I absolutely recommend Hayes, Berry, White, & Vanzant, LLP. Worth every penny spent.

– Megan Cook

Excellent firm, specifically Colby Berry. We’ve used him for multiple legal needs and he is always on top of things and gets everything done quickly and easily. I would definitely recommend them to anyone I know.

Kirsten was heaven sent. I knew from our phone consultation that she was the lawyer for me. She was direct and honest about my outcome. Divorce isn’t easy and it usually gets messy but Kirsten not only helped me and walked me through every single step she was understanding and thoughtful. I can’t thank her enough for what she did for me.

-Mary Yex

Diana and Byron were very understanding, compassionate and wonderful to communicate with during this very stressful time for us. The receptionist was also very kind and caring. They never made you feel anything but welcome anytime we called or stopped by. Kept us very informed via email as well. They took care of everything. Can’t rate them high enough!!! 5 stars for sure!

– Bobby Barnett

I spoke with Mr. Berry, and he was amazing. I had a few general questions about guidance in dealing with a financial organization I was in a dispute with. For about three months, I had a few legal questions that I couldn’t find answers to by doing my own research, nor would anyone help give me guidance without the expectation of something in return. However, Mr. Berry was able to call me for a consult within 24 hours of inquiry. Within minutes, all of my questions were answered with a direct and clear explanation. He was honest, knowledgeable and gave me some great advise that I benefited from financially. Highly recommended. He will be my go-to for any legal advise or representation regarding my finances.

– Christopher Khoury

Byron was friendly and helpful!

– Charon Hauck

I was represented by Colby Berry of Hayes, Berry & Vanzant for a very complex family court matter. I would highly recommend Mr. Berry due to his knowledge of family law, integrity and professionalism.

Lance Vanzant recently handled a variance request for my mother on her Lake Ray Roberts property and was able to get approval last week from Denton County Commissioners’ Court. We are very happy with the result. Mr. Vanzant’s knowledge and expertise in this area of law is exceptional and I highly recommend him to anyone needing assistance in this area of law.

– Sharon Wahlenmaier

You know what an attorney will be like during the consultation. I spoke with Lance and his paralegal. Both were knowledgeable and professional.  Although I didn’t have a case, I didn’t get charged for them to tell me this. I would approach them again in the future.

-Sanger Gold & Silver

I highly encourage those in need of a lawyer to reach out to Lance. I have never needed a lawyer before so the process was new to me. I reached out to Lance for help and direction on what I needed to do on a property I invested in for my business. I was able to meet with Lance the day I called for a consult. He was professional and courteous. When I needed to contact him he called me back immediately and reached out to me often via e-mail. I feel he went above and beyond for me and I am grateful he was in my corner!

-Patricia Gross

A year or so I hired this firm. William Scazzero was my representative. It was a pitiful real estate boundary dispute. Mr. Scazzero, with his knowledge and also the larger firm including Mr. White with such expansive expertise and integrity, so when we got down to the nuts and buckles, Mr. Scazzero knocked the ball out of the park for me and my family. He is one aggressive and also sweet dude if you think you are being wrongly accused.

-Don and Pam Hancock.

I have known Don for almost 30 years and I highly recommend him. I am a real estate broker and have used Don several time regarding real estate transactions. He will give you great advice and responds quickly to emails and calls.

We hired Mr. Little to assist us in guardianship of our two young grandchildren. They had been in our care for several months and we wanted additional protection so we could add them to our insurance and take care of their needs legally going forward. Mr. Little was very kind and listened to my concerns and needs and guided us to the best resolution for us, the grandchildren and their parents. It was all handled in a very timely manner. If we have future needs we will be reaching out to Mr. Little. We appreciate everything he has done for our family

– Judy Howard

I dropped in on Mr White and Mr Sargent after a referral (appointments are more professional) but they both took time to listen to my concerns and lay out my options. I retained Mr Sargent and he was clear, and accessible to me throughout my time of legal need. He is knowledgeable and has a no nonsense approach that appears to be well respected by other attorneys who have to cross legal paths with Mr Sargent. I would recommend him as well as this firm.

– Michelle Gipson

Mr. White was able to respond to a possible breach of contract issue on the same day that I contacted him, and his actions were enough to make the buyer “reconsider”. I would not hesitate to use his services again, even though others thought I was wasting my time. Best money I ever spent.
