    • I recommend Reuben Doupe.
    • I hired Reuben 1-3 years ago.
    • Reuben handled my Family matter.

    Reuben Doupe’ is one of the finest Marital Family Law attorneys in Florida and I am thankful Reuben was my attorney during my divorce experience. I hired Reuben to represent me during a very contentious and lengthy divorce which, due to no fault of Reuben’s, was perpetuated by my malicious and litigious ex-spouse. Through years of motions, hearings, depositions, mediations, and trials, Reuben remained diligent and dedicated to doing everything within his power and the law to protect my best interest and those of my children. Reuben skillfully navigated through my high-conflict divorce, child custody/visitation issues, child support issues, and alimony issues with great professionalism, knowledge, and experience. And when the time arose, Reuben’s expertise, skill, and integrity are never more evident than when he was in court litigating. Reuben is a fierce litigator who will fight for his clients. Reuben is well-respected by his peers, and feared by lesser attorneys, because Reuben is ethical. Reuben works hard for his clients in and out of the courtroom and the proof is in the outcome for his clients. I proudly recommend Reuben to all my friends.

    • I recommend Reuben Doupe.
    • I hired Reuben more than 3 years ago.
    • Reuben handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    I hired Reuben over 5 years ago to initiate, negotiate and settle my divorce. My divorce was extremely high conflict, resulting in many emails, child custody issues, and court dates. Reuben was always available to take my calls, emails and concerns. If he was not in the office, his paralegal was always on standby to relay messages and respond within hours. I am very impressed with this attorney and have recommended him in the past to many people who have used him and thought he goes above and beyond for his clients. His ethics are unquestionable and he will always make the best choices for your case. People need to realize that divorce is ugly and painful. We will not always get our way, but the attorneys are there to offer a middle ground. A client's only hope is that they have a truthful, honest, and knowledgeable attorney to lead them through the darkness of divorce, so that they will come out in the light. Reuben can and will do this for you. I stand by him like he stood by me.

    • I do not recommend Reuben Doupe.
    • I hired Reuben 1-3 years ago.
    • Reuben handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    This attorney was recommended by an attorney-friend of Mr. Doupe's in Fort Myers, so I hired Mr. Doupe' for my divorce case thinking he was from Naples. I was under the impression he was a Naples attorney only to find out he did 95% of his work as referrals from Fort Myers. This was a well-known divorce case and he did nothing to find necessary and imperative discovery of marital assets for me in my thirteen year marriage or even file for temporary alimony for support since I am in my 70's. He was unethical and unprofessional because he worked against me and with my husband's attorney to get my husband everything. I paid this attorney $14,000 in five months and I ended up being intimidated and pressured over and over to sign the MSA and not go to trial. I would not recommend this attorney to anyone who needs an attorney to truly represent their case in an ethical and professional manner and to be fair and honest in all circumstances.

      Lawyer Comment:

      I represented this client to the best of my ability and I wish to respond to some of the claims above. I strongly deny any unethical or unprofessional conduct, or that I ever worked with her Husband's attorney against her best interests. I did not intimidate or improperly pressure her to sign a Marital Settlement Agreement. On a lesser note, 95% or more of my cases are in Collier County, although I do take Lee County cases and enjoy having cases in Lee County. Further most of my referrals are Naples attorneys, not Ft. Myers attorneys, but I do get referrals from both.

      Due to the ethical rules on client confidences, I cannot respond with any more detail, other than a denial of taking any of the improper actions she is accusing me of, as such actions were never part of her case. I cannot recite any of the details of her case to contradict her claims in her review. I wish her nothing but the best for her in in her life post-divorce.

      Unfortunately, in divorce cases, many people allow their emotions to get the better of them. This is very common, as a divorce is certainly a very traumatic and life-changing event. While it is an attorney's job to represent their clients' legal interests to the best of their abilities, we attorney's are not psychologists and cannot necessarily alter or improve a client's emotional state in their divorce action. That is one of the major reasons divorcing parties need attorneys, as they need someone who is removed from the emotional strain to work on their behalf and look out for them.

      In every case, and for every client, I do the best I can to get a fair and just result through settlement or through trial. Unfortunately, the sad truth is that to best possible result will not always be enough for every person going through a divorce.

    • I recommend Reuben Doupe.
    • I hired Reuben more than 3 years ago.
    • Reuben handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    I found Reuben to be a true professional. In my view, his ability to listen, understand, and develop a plan resulted in a sooner than expected settlement.
