A group of homeowners in our condominium complex hired Mitchell Katine based on the recommendation of a former judge. We were concerned with the current business practices of our HOA board of directors and the management of our community. Our concerns escalated with the completion of a large project. Lack of transparency, zero vetting of contractors and subs were only a few of the many concerns.
Mitchell recommended removing the HOA board and guided us through the process . Even though the attempt was unsuccessful, he gave us good advice and provided guidelines to protect us from retaliation and lawsuits.

Mitchell Katine was referred through a source I trusted to begin with. He was immediately responsive to my initial outreach and quickly assisted us in addressing a stressful situation with an obstinate tenant. Within 24 hours of our initial conversation, Mitchell had the entire process moving along so that we could meet time sensitive deadlines. And I never had to reach out to him for more information as he was one step ahead of me the entire way. I felt very comfortable putting my (and really my mother's) real estate issues in his hands.

Mr. Katine returned phone calls promptly, thoroughly reviewed our case, gave great clarification / explanations, and followed up immediately. I would definitely recommend Mr. Katine to anyone in search of a trustworthy lawyer. We would definitely hire Mr. Katine again.

Mr. Katine worked with our HOA to resolve a dispute about our electric gate. We'd been unable to resolve his without help. His assistance allowed us to void a fine imposed by the HOA and to keep the gate in the way we wished.

Mr. Katine responded promptly to my email inquiry. He set a convenient appointment time and immediately reviewed all of the information I provided. He offered clear and direct legal advice on how to proceed, and resolved my legal issues in a matter of weeks.
He made the legal process easy to understand and provided accurate and experienced information. His office staff is kind and helpful, and his office was easy to locate with lots of parking. I highly recommend Mr. Katine for his prompt, professional, and compassionate legal service.

Decision-making is a nerve-wracking weakness of mine. I especially appreciated Mr. Katine's quiet, professional manner, the enlightened way he offered options and his prompt response at all times.
He even kept me informed about his schedule. What lawyer does that?

I had a one hour consultation with Mr. Katine about my neighbor raising roosters. He helped me with a demand letter that was excellent. I decided not to go through with the case at this time. Mr. Katine was very responsive, knowledgable and helpful. He always responded quickly to emails. I would definately hire him in the future, if the need arises.

I went to see Mitchell at a very difficult time in my life, he walked me through my options and really understood what I needed and how to get it done. If I ever need a lawyer again I will go straight to Mitchell, a wonderful lawyer and a wonderful person.

Mitchell Katine is an amazing guy...not just a fantastic lawyer. You couldn't ask for anyone better on your side. He was so knowledgeable of the law and always thinking of the best approach. I found him to be very innovative...definitely a fore-runner in terms of practicing law. My only regret of my time with him is that I decided to settle before being able to see him work the court room...because I got a taste of how he delivers, and the thought and imagination to piece together a wonderful array of powerful words to tell my story, and I would have LOVED to watch him fight my case. He's also caring to his clients and passionate about doing his best for them...whatever direction they want to go with their issue. I would hire him again in a heartbeat...and I hope that speaks volumns about his capabilities. I have no complaints about this wonderful man and / or the job he did for me as a lawyer.

Mr. Katine is a blessed, highly favored and successful lawyer. He does a very professional job, defending his clients. Mr. Katine is an excellent communicator, adept at oral arguments and an expertise as a Trial lawyer. He won my case! I would highly recommend his legal services.

My Go To Legal Expert. Mr. Katine makes himself as available to his clients as anyone possibly could and often answers the phone himself when I call. He is extremely knowledgeable and excellent at both listening and then answering my questions.

No one wants to hire a lawyer, but we are all faced with difficult people and situations that require us to hire a lawyer. I worked with Mitchell for over a year. When I hired him - and throughout my case - I was very stressed, scared, and angry. In short, I was not an easy client to deal with! He immediately and consistently soothed my fears and reassured me throughout the process. He never gave up on me, and he never showed a lack of motivation or drive to win my case (despite the length of the case or his busy caseload). You will be shocked that he returns calls and emails within SECONDS!! He goes well-beyond what is "required" to help you win your case. He is genuine, compassionate, kind, and fair. He will listen to you and your concerns and help you weigh the pros and cons of every choice you need to make along the way. And, to top it off, his colleagues and staff are excellent too! Please save yourself time and relieve your stress - Mitchell will win your case and help you grow as a person along the way! Thank you Mitchell!!!

To whom it may concern,
Mitchell Katine has been the legal counsel of R and R Partnership, Inc. for over 10 years. He has been more than a pleasure to work with, bringing his attention to detail to every file. His communication and people skills are only exceeded by his professionalism and care to detail.
Mitchell’s remarkable talents in business, law and communication make him an asset to our organization. It’s a genuine pleasure and honor for me to recommend Mitchell Katine and his firm Katine and Netchman.
They have assisted my company in many stressful and complicated situations. From tax negotiations to injury claims for which I’ve never been disappointed by the job performed.
I would certainly recommend Katine and Netchman for any task where enthusiasm, hard work and trustworthiness are valued.

I have worked with Mitchell Katine for over 21 years, as Mitchell is the attorney for the homeowner's association where I am employed as the assistant manager. Mitchell has always taken the time to be sure that I understand the law and the reasons behind the law on the issue/s which I present to him on behalf of the association.

Mitchell is extremely knowledgeable and handled my case with skill and integrity. Throughout the process, he communicated openly and effectively, so I had no unanswered questions and he showed the utmost respect and care for me as a client. He is highly experienced and I would recommend his services to anyone I know.

Mitchell is a attorney's attorney. He is empathetic yet professional with clients, informed, very bright, efficient, thorough, and committed. I give him my very highest recommendation. It's a lucky person to have Mitchell as her attorney.

Mitchell Katine has been my attorney on my Corporate and Personal matters since 2000. I have witnessed him in court proceedings, he has advised me without fail in the most difficult of circumstances. I trust him implictly, and were it not for his advise, patience, knowledge of the law, contracts, I would not be as successful as I am today. I consider him in all matters before moving forward, and would never consider using anybody but Mitchell, or somebody he advises me to speak with.

From the numerous times I have hired Mitchell for our HOA and also personal law issues; he has performed with excellent knowledge of the laws without excessive charges. Every email or voice message I have left; he has returned my messages with a quick response. Of all the lawyers I have hired; Mitchell is by far the best lawyer. I would recommend Mitchell for any legal advice. If he doesn't have the answers or it's not his field; he will lead you in the right direction. Mitchell shows compassion for his clients and the law. Mitchell will always be my lawyer of choice.

Mitchell is absolutely the best lawyer I've ever had the pleasure to deal with. He returned calls promptly and was always available to discuss our case. He was caring, knowledgeable, and courteous. I would highly recommend him to anybody, and I have! His entire staff is just as courteous as well.

He has been very responsive, sensitive to my needs, wise enough to bring in additional counsel when necessary, and understood and appreciated my desire to spend time and money only as truly needed.

I've used Mitchell Katine for a few legal issues, most recently for an adoption and name change. He was honest, compassionate, and thoughtful in his approach. I believe he did a great job in advocating for me as well as for my child. He brought in the right people at the right times, and he was knowledgeable about the judge who handled our case. I trust him, and I'd hire him again.

Mr. Katine and his staff handle all homeowner association matters in the Houston area for my company and have done so for the past 3 years. They are, without reservation, the best I've found in this area, and I have no hesitation in recommending Mr. Katine, whether the Association is developer-controlled or homeowner-controlled. To the above list of characteristics, I would add both "congenial" and "cooperative," both with a mark of "Excellent."

I have worked with MItchell Katine and his firn for many yuears in the homeowner association management industry. Mitchell is extremely easy to work with as are his staff memebers. He is extremely responsive, always delivering when he says he will. He brings a depth of knowledge to the table and proactively provides legal guidance to resolve issues, most times before litigation.
His firm has been very effective in the enforcement files we turn over to them and they always keep me updated on the files so I may report back to our mutual clients. Mitchell answers his own phone and is always easy to get in touch with.
I hghly recommend Mitchell and his firm.

Mitchell's ability to present a case in a precise, well thought-out, organized fashion is among the best I have seen (both in writing and verbally at hearings, trial, etc.). He has incredible knowledge of the law which results in fewer "research" hours. His rates are very fair, and he does not overstate the amount of time he spends on case-related tasks. I have worked with many attorneys over the past 20 years, and he is the only one I trust to handle my personal matters.

Mr. Katine handled my STD and LTD disability in 2008. He was extremely knowledgeable and walked me through step by step during the process. My short term and long term disability was approved as well as my social security disability. He seems to really care about his clients and always answered and followed up with questions.
In the beginning of 2012 my social security disability was reviewed and my benefits were cancelled. I immediately contacted Mr. Katine and he referred me to Benjamin Ha in his office. Via teleconference Mr. Hu went through my paperwork and gave me advice on the appeals process. He was very knowledgeable about social security disability. I followed his advice and my appeal was approved.
I highly recommend both Mr. Katine and Mr. Hu for LTD disability and Social Security disability.

Back in about 1996 or 1997, my late partner and I had attended several free evening classes that were sponsored, I believe, via either AFH, [Aids Foundation Houston], or what is now known as Legacy Community Health Services regarding what persons should do to protect themselves financially and medically just after discovering that they were recently diagnosed with either HIV+ or AIDS. These classes was taught by Mitchell Katine.
Although his services were in high demand even back then Mitchell Katine KNEW how important it was for each of us that could not afford counsel to teach us about holographic wills in addition to the how to and what it would take to fill out the 10+ page form for Social Security Disability and covering oneself for medications during the interim waiting period.
My partner and I followed his directions to the letter and neither of us had any difficulty whatsoever getting approved for SSD nor getting the life sustaining medications that we both needed until we were eligible for SS Part D.
When my partner passed in 2001, the holographic will held up in Probate Court and I had no issues left to resolve with my partner's family members. It was an amicable process and resolution.
They became seamless processes all due to this man's dedication to the community-at-large and empowering each of us to research and discover all that we needed to get through the battles ahead. If it was not for Mitchell Katine my life would be very different to this very day.
I am thankful that Mitchel Katine had taken the time out of his busy schedule to reach out to us, to show us the way so that we would not have the hurdles that he knew so many in our community had to jump over to get the life sustaining medications and services that we so desperately needed.
He knew that for many of us that grew up without privilege nor had great financial wealth would be able to make the best of what he had to offer us back then - and we did!
Mitchel, this is a personal THANK YOU for what you have done for me and I am very grateful for what you had taught me. That empowerment has carried on through other areas of my life as well and I am now able to help others that are going through those processes by being able to point them in the right direction and by proxy they are also thankful to you.
Our time in that class was quite limited and I am most likely one of the nameless faces that you have encountered or acquainted yourself with over the years but I personally consider you a friend.
I highly recommend this man, Mitchell Katine, for any legal counsel that you may need in his areas of expertise. If I could afford it I would hire him again on the spot. Mitchell is far more worthy of having as a personal attorney than any rate schedule.
Best Wishes and Highest Regards,
Jim B. - Houston, Texas
