Mr. Katine, IS AWESOME! Here's a bit of back ground on my case, see for yourself how TRULY REMARKABLE this man is.
In 2013 I was diagnosed with a deadly disease. That same year I began chemical therapy.There was a very real chance I could pass on. That being the case I decide to provide for my only child who was an adult and her teenage son, that I love dearly. Both of whom had lived with me for the past 8 years due to finacial issues.
In the possibly fatal condition I was in and before I started a treatment that could kill me I put all my possessions ie my home almost paid off, 2 vehicles paid for, inherented antiques (as I'm the oldest person alive in our family) everything I owned including ALL BANK ACCOUNTS etc were put in the adult childs name. As a parent with only one child and after living in the same home for 8 years I believed I could trust my adult child with my life. An agreement with adult child was written down and placed in fire box safe at the home. It stated that all possessions would be returned if I was (GOD WILL) to servive and money would only be used as I allocated until I passed if that was Gods will.
About 7 or 8 months after I'd servived treatment I was beginning to grow peach fuzz, all the sores were going away, I was feeling a bit better. Best of all my 6 month labs after treatment came back showing everything was GONE, THANK GOD!
I was up more now and began to notice that late payment statements were coming and I checked my bank accounts and A LOT MORE money was gone then should have been. Then I found the fire safe had been broken. I thought it had been dropped or fallen. When I looked for our written agreement it was GONE! When I questioned my adult child it got ugly and in my beaten down hairless condition she called the police on me and tried to have me arrested and taken to jail!!!
That's the first time I called Mr. Katine. He talked to me immediately. We dicussed my situation and he said for a case like mine, in which I'd put everything into the adult childs name it would be a huge disadvantage for me because adult child now legally owned everything I'd worked 30 years to attain. Mr. Katine told me it would require a $20,000. retainer. REMEMBER; MITCHELL KATINE isn't just any attorney he's a SUPREME COURT WINNING ATTORNEY and a HERO FOR THE UNDER DOG!!!
2 days later my adult child had me served by an attorney. The document stated I had 3 days to leave her propery! I was ALLOWED TO BRING 2 SUITCASES OF CLOTHES and I would be escourted out of adult childs home by the police!!!!! I liturally fell to the ground my knees gave out. I would have to give all my hard earned possessions to my adult child even though I was getting better.I was loosing my home, my vehicles all my money disappeared the day before I was served. Because I'd been so sick and in bed since moving to Texas I knew NO ONE and HAD NO WHERE TO GO but THE STREETS, which would have physically KILLED me in a very short time in the condition I was still in.
That's the second time I called Mr. Katine. HE WAS FURIOUS that a trusted adult child would put their own ILL parent out on the street when I told him what had happened and he saw the legal paper that I'd been served.
Mr. Katine told me RIGHT THEN I was not going to be out on the street and that he was taking my case pro bono as my adult child had taken all the money in my accounts!!! Mr. Katine hadn't even laid eyes on me yet but he's truly a man that believes in justice as I wish all attorneys did!!
The moral of my case is Mr. Katine has worked for an ENTIRE YEAR, on a WEEKLY BASIS on MY CASE WITHOUT ASKING FOR A PENNY because he knew I had nothing left! Who takes a case for FREE that ends up taking a year of VERY VALUABLE TIME INCLUDING NIGHTS and WEEKENDS MANY TIMES? I'll tell you A GREAT MAN ie MITCHELL KATINE! OH YEAH, MR. KATINE with his KNOWLEDGE, COMPASSION and UNBELIEVABLE LEGAL SKILLS got me enough money to PAY CASH FOR MY OWN BEAUTIFUL NEW HOME!

Mitchell was an exceptional lawyer in helping with our adoption process. He was very informed, and gave us an exact plan of what we needed to do to complete the process. He kept in contact with us through email and phone and he was always reachable. The adoption process was completed less than one month after my son was born. We are so thankful Mitchell was our lawyer and have recommended him to ours friends.

We could not be any more appreciative of how Mitchell helped our family. Prior to meeting Mitchell we had been in the adoption process for well over 1 year and $10,000 in lawyer fees without even a court appearance. Mitchell presented us a with a plan that included a timeline and a cost estimate; both of which he delivered. He had our adoption completed within a month and for half of what we already paid our previous lawyer. Mitchell is a great lawyer you can trust and delivers results. Thank you Mitchell

Mitchell Katine was wonderful in helping me win my Long-term Disability appeal. He was very knowledgeable and guided me through this process during a difficult illness. I was able to do some of the leg-work myself so that the appeal letter was affordable for me at the time. He knew exactly what information, what lab tests and what other tests I should have done to supoprt my case. Due to his professionalism and knowledge we won my appeal and I and my family are so very thankful.

My brother and I hired an attorney, in October 2011, to settle a claim with a title company and the purchaser of our deceased grandparents' home. The attorney procrastinated for several years in resolving the cloud on the title. In March 2015, we found an impressive, knowledgeable attorney, Mr. Katine, upon the recommendation of several attorneys who don't practice real estate law. Mr. Katine ahs been a s God send. He presented a settlement amount to the title company and within 24 hours the title company accepted it. He accomplished in less than two months what we had been waiting to resolve for four years. On a scale of 1 to 10, he gets a 30. Now, I am going to ask him to help me with a Will and other related documents, Kudos to Mr. Katine.

Went in for a consultation with Mitchell to resolve an issue involving my tenant's failure to comply with deed restrictions. Mr. Katine was mindful of my budget, and helped me feel I could resolve the issue with confidence representing myself. I'm happy to say the issue did not go to trial, and I ended up just paying for legal fees. I couldn't recommend someone more highly for resolving HOA issues than Mitchell.

I contacted Attorney Mitchell Katine by searching the internet for a Real Estate Attorney. I needed someone knowledgeable but also was looking for someone who had been in practice for some time. A seasoned veteran, I might say. While reading recommendations, such as this, my thought was that he would be very expensive and I wouldn't be able to afford someone of his caliber. However, that did not prevent me from contacting him. The least I could do was have the initial meeting and then make a decision. Well the first meeting captured me. We met in a conference room which was very inviting and comfortable. When I began with the content of my case, I mentioned that it was a five-year old case and it had never gone to trial. So we needed someone who we could give a five year synopsis of what was going on and be able to interpret what we needed. Because of his expertise, he did just that. He was there with me all the way. At the time Attorney Katine accepted the case, the judge had ordered a mitigation. We only had two weeks to get this done. He did it. Never missed a beat, never left me out of the loop of what was going on, such as filings or conversations with the opposing attorney. He had to pick up from where another attorney left off in a short period of time. He was diligent in doing research with other cases similar to mine, which was a benefit to our case. This five year case ended in three months when Attorney Katine took over. We left shouting Hallelujah. I thank God for leading me to the internet and choosing Attorney Katine for this case. He knows how to take care of his clients and is very respectful.

It was a very long process for us, prior to meeting Mitchell, and we started having doubts if this would ever be finalized. When we met Mitchell Katine, he reassured us that it can be taken care of & we immediately fell in love with him and wished we met him sooner. He informed us what needed to be done, he quickly responded to all emails/phone calls and kept us informed on everything. Mitchell is awesome and he met all of our needs in a lawyer.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Katine yesterday. I have to say that my experience with his business establishment was very pleasant from beginning to end. I brought to him my difficult, complex case regarding boundary lines and errors in my warranty deeds exhibit (A) description. He was able to immediately dissect the issues, ask the right questions and point me in the right direction. The confidence, assertiveness and passion he exudes is what makes him trustworthy in his line of work.
