Review Robert Sobel
  • “Case Dismissed” - Went the extra mile

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Sheryl

    Hired attorney

    I believe Mr. Sobel really went the extra mile to bring my case to a successful conclusion of "case dismissed." He didn’t go for a quick and easy lesser charge; he worked through the data and used his many years of professional insight to bring about the successful conclusion.
    Other aspects I noticed about the development of the case and Mr. Sobel:
    ** Good at explaining legal issues in lay person’s terms.
    ** Knows how to use professional strategies that win and have integrity.
    ** Saw the incongruities in the felony charges and negotiated very well
    ** It was my only experience with any criminal issues and I needed hope and direction. Thankfully it was well provided.
    ** Extremely grateful to Mr. Sobel and his staff including Jason.

    Really bad experience.Hired Mr. Sobel December 2014, he charged me a flat fee of $4,500. I only meet with him when he collected this fee. Over the course of a year I never meet him again and only talked to him for 3 minutes one time. The divorce lasted for a year, he and his staff showed no desire to resolve my case. His staff was constantly changing every 3 months. I was treated very rudely on the phones the times I called, If they actually answered or called me back, which was rare. I ended up still married because of additional fees he wanted to charge me to go to court which I could not pay. He did not offer me any legal advice or alternatives. Please think twice before hiring this lawyer.

    I hired Mr. Sobel after consulting with him for a few hours of his time. He was reasonable and very informative of what to expect during the process of mediation and divorce. Jason (his associate) did a lot of the research and was excellent with giving me details about the ongoing of the case any time I called or emailed. We just finished mediation which was successful and I would recommend Mr. Sobel to my friends and family. Very good experience!

    So I hired Mr. Sobel to handle my child support and modification. I was a little nervous because I didn't really know what I was going to get. The AGs office had always told me no. Well Mr. Sobel said yes. I received a monthly increase in child support, medical support, back support, plus interest. During mediation, he put his foot down and I appreciated it. I'd hire him again. He has few patience for nonsense and will not allow his clients to be cheated. I like that!

    I chose another lawyer and ended up going back to Robert Sobel after the first one did nothing but overcharge me without results. Robert represented me very well the remainder of my case. I wish I had listened to that little voice to choose him from the start, but everything worked out quite well in the end. Props to Katina for keeping everything in line with opposing counsel. Five stars!

    I've used Mr. Sobel on two different occasions and am happy to say he is very knowledgeable in his field, has strong integrity and made time available whenever I had questions. BTW he was successful in both of my issues. Thank you.

    Everyone is polite and professional but very laid back and welcoming. I've never seen a lawyer sweat before until Attorney Sobel. He was stuck in horrendous Houston traffic and his team went into action. They made sure my case got seen even though we would've missed the window of time for the Judge and the clerk decidedly told me if we were late, it would be reset. Robert ran every bit of the way and wet with sweat got us in, seen, and the case closed. If you chose the Sobel firm, they will sweat for you. I've seen it and highly recommend. — The Happy Divorce'

    I hired Robert to represent me in a highly contested custody-divorce matter. My husband was trying to hide assets and seeking custody. I met with Robert when the lawyer I had initially hired to represent me tried to get me to settle for an unfair settlement of our property issues and failed to uncover all the community assets. He cautioned me to be prepared for all of the issues he anticipated and was correct about every single one. He and his staff were also available nearly 24/7. They were very knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable and gave me great advice as issue after issue continued to crop up with my ex. I never felt the level of confidence with my prior lawyer that I did with Robert and his staff. I highly recommend him and his firm for any legal matter that may come up.

    Since my divorce was finalized, my parents hired Robert to prepare their wills and estate planning packages. My parents have been very satisfied with his work and I am having him prepare mine too.

    I found this attorney through Avvo. He was rated highly. I have hired several attorney's in my lifetime as I had been in business and been divorced. There is a non-refundable fee as part of the contract and I should have know that was going to be a problem. After paying him, he did not file any of the documents he promised. He never made sure they were signed by the judge. The one order he wrote has so many errors in it that the court is mad at me for changing things that weren't ordered. I called to ask the status for 4 months, and after that he stopped responding completely. I had to hire another attorney as I am still in the middle of the case.
