Helping people during difficult times.
I have had a great experience with Michael Rubin and his staff!! I have had a few family law attorneys, there were delayed or forgotten issues, and the communication was lacking. Michael Rubin is not that type of attorney; he responds to my text and calls almost immediately. Sometimes they were delayed but not over 24-48 hours, but what can you expect when it is after hours or weekends. We pay them to make the process easier for us and take the stress of the logistics on our shoulders. In my experience communicating with my past attorney, I would have to go through the office to set up an appointment, which makes sense. But for God's sake, Mr. Rubin had no issue with me constantly communicating with him on his personal cell phone. You WILL NOT find this with any other attorney or law firm! He has a small firm of 3, and as soon as I started to allow his staff to do their jobs uninterrupted, my case was completed as quickly as the courts allowed. My best advice is to let his firm handle what you paid them for, provide what is needed from you to keep your case moving as soon as requested, and the rest is up to the Court and your spouse's attorney's leisure. I always had issues in the past understanding that the Courts didn't care that I needed something done by a specific day. However, Michael and his staff were on it and trying to push it through, even if they had to stay late or drive an hour or more to get something signed at the Court. Michael Rubin saved me a lot of stress and time by handling my case. He made sure to fight for me in Court when my spouse's attorney was trying to leave me penniless and take my children (numerous times); he is a true bulldog in the Court. He doesn't sugarcoat the situation, he's a straight shooter, and that is what kind of attorney I want at my side.
He was kind and compassionate and helped me when other would not help. He gives lawyers a good name.
He was extremely professional and did a great job.
Mr.Rubin is sharp, fierce and ethical. He was not afraid of my ex spouse’s attorney and others that I called were. He was always responsive the entire year it took to resolve my matter (due to COVID delays). I felt safe, protected, listened to, and well represented with Michael. I’d hire him again with zero hesitation.
I charge a flat fee for all agreed matters. The flat fee covers all court costs and attorney fees. Contested matters normally require a retainer paid up front and is billed hourly.
Normally- I like to talk to clients on the phone to get an idea of what is going on in their lives and why they are needing a family law attorney. Than I like to set up an in person meeting with the client so they can meet me in person and decide if they wish to retain me.
I take minimum of 15 hours of continuing legal education every year.
I take family law very personally because I am adoptive father of two children. When I married my wife she had two children from a previous relationship. Unfortunately, their Father was a non factor in their lives. When my wife and I had our first child Landon, it was important to me that Hallie and Alex be my children and not just step-children. This made our family complete. Children are a blessing and should be treated as such.
My practice is 100% focused on family law. I am known by family law judges throughout north texas and surrounding counties.
I have handled contested and uncontested divorces and custody matters. I recently was able to get the court to award my client the marital home, 75% of the husband's retirement and alimony for 5 years. Before she hired me her husband said she would get nothing.
It's important to realize that all family attorneys are not alike as in any profession. I pride myself in providing top notch legal work at competitive prices. I have been recognized by family courts for my knowledge of the law and my tenacity in the courtroom.
Is their family matter agreed or contested? They also need to understand that family law matters can be very complicated and they are going to need a lawyer with a successful track record and years of experience.
