Mitchell Kartine is my attorney. He is fantastic, knowledgeable, extremely accommodating. He has done an excellent job helping me in my estate planning. The cost is reasonable and his advice has been superb. All his staff is friendly and very efficient. I give him a 10 out of ten!! He is very caring and personal!!
Mitchell helped me deal with an issue with my condo HOA. He was patient and understanding with me, and firm and disciplined with the HOA and their attorneys. Basically, he helped them realize that their position was erroneous. It seems that everything has been resolved amicably.
I've been a homeowner for 40+ years in several communities and have never had an HOA problem nor have I ever hired an attorney before, so I felt somewhat overwhelmed. Therefore, I especially appreciate that Mitchell made me feel that I had someone who understood me, agreed with my stance, and was on my side. He was very prompt in returning my phone calls and emails. His billing and accounting system is clear and fair. He even personally came to my condo during the HOA inspection.
I would certainly call him again, and would recommend him to a friend, although I hope I never have to.
I went in to talk with Mitchell about my private disability. A review was coming up for it and I was completely clueless on what to do (and not to do). When I first came in he had a big smile on his face and was very welcoming. He made me feel extremely comfortable. Most of the time you feel very uptight and nervous at a lawyers office - here you do not. Mitchell walked me through the whole review process step by step and explained everything that I needed to have done along the way and exams that I needed to have performed. Mostly he made me realize how the disability companies work and how I needed to counteract that. He was kind, respectful and extremely helpful. I can say that thanks to Mitchell I was approved for my private disability. I would definitely recommend him.
I was recommended to Attorney Katine by a colleague. I was separating from a same-sex domestic partnership that was frought with contention. Mitchell explained my rights clearly and compassionately and gave me the knowledge and peace of mind I needed to ensure that my legal rights would be honored. Thanks to him the separation resulted in me receiving much more than I had thought possible prior to his advice and guidance. He was nothing short of a desperately needed "angel" in a confusing and difficult situation.
I have had to call Mr. Katine on several matters before. His return call was prompt, he answered my questions and offered helpful advice. I have known of Mr. Katine for many years, when I lived in Houston, but have been very appreciative of his help, and would not hesitate to use his services for anything at anytime.

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.
