    Great outcome

    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.

    Excellent choice

    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'

    Outstanding Lawyer!

    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.

    Buyer Beware

    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.

    Great at what he does!

    Mr. Sobel represented me in a modification. He did what he needed to do to limit the visitation my child's father got, which is exactly what I wanted. He is a Great lawyer and his legal assistant is really amazing. Thanks for your help RSS!

    Divorce

    When I walked into Mr. Sobel's office for my consultation, I was a bundle of nerves not knowing what to expect. The fact that my marriage was ending had me an a very emotional state. My free 1 hour consultation turned into a 2 hour consultation that I walked out of feeling a weight had been lifted off of my shoulders. Mr. Sobel insured me that he would fight the fight for me, just leave the work to him. Four months later, I am divorced and got more than I had thought possible. Mr. Sobel is an attorney that fought for me and made sure that when I entered into my next phase of life, I had the tools, money and confidence that I needed. I will be referring him to everyone I know that find themselves in need of a lawyer.

    Child Custody Case

    Mr. Sobel was very helpful and knowledgeable in regards to my case. He set my mind at ease and let me know each step of the way what was going on with my case. I am very happy with the final outcome and will definitely be recommending him to others in need of an attorney.

    My grandpa used to be a great runner, but he is not anymore

    Maybe at one time Mr Sobel was a good lawyer but I had an awful experience with him. I was in a predicament because I was served my divorce papers on a Saturday and had a hearing that following Tuesday. Mr Sobel and his wife convinced me I needed an attorney for the hearing and literally the ONLY thing they ever did on my case was cancel the hearing they indicated I needed them for. The only paper work I have from him is a receipt for the $1500 I gave him to represent me in the non contested divorce because all of the other paper work I was supposed to download from their portal that I was not able to access for 3 week and when I was finally able to access the portal there was no information or documentation. My divorce was very very simple.. no kids, no community property and yet I could never get in touch with Mr Sobel or anyone in his office and neither could the opposing parties attorney. After going through the excruciating ordeal of getting Mr Sobel to withdrawal as my attorney my decree was signed within a week and a half. Even though he did absolutely NOTHING for me or my case he refuses to refund me any of the retainer but at least he has continued to say he is going to do something and never do it. He has done so 3 times this week alone, I have reached out to him trying to get him to do the right thing and he says he will get back to me by the end of that day or the end of that week or the following Monday and he has never once actually done so which does not surprise me since this is the reason I fired him in the first place. Don't waste your money or your time with him.

    My Attorney Robert Sobel gets results

    I am a single father with 2 ex-wives and have custody of both my child from each marriage, that was only possible with the assistance of Robert Sobel. Over the past 15 years I've had several attorneys represent me on many family court cases and Robert by far exceeds my expectations and always produces results! The main reason I even chose Mr. Sobel was the fact that he's honest and straight forward, he gave me realistic options that always looked out for my best interests!

    A Great Advocate To Have When Dealing With The Legal System

    I originally sought Mr. Sobel's help because of his web page and our first contact. The web page was simple, but still answered many of my questions (not one of the convoluted web pages where you have to spend hours trying to get a little information). It also stated if I called I would get a person. I called, HE answered. He was at home with his family, and he answered the phone. He could of let it go to voice mail or many other options, but He answered. He asked me to meet him at his office.

    I guess my case is/was similar to many (divorce/support cases), but it was happening to me. It was significant to me, and it was another issue in a long line of unreasonable issues. My state of mind allowed for very little tolerance of circumstances where I felt I was being taken advantage. Mr. Sobel identified the problems. He addressed my concerns. He also let me know that while he understood that these issues were significant to me, they were not atypical of the process and he was well aware of how to successfully handle the issue and bring an end to the problem.

    He dealt with my impatience and lack of understanding of the legal system. He and his staff demonstrated they were my biggest advocate in and out of the court room regarding this issue. I appreciate all that he and his staff did to successfully resolve this issue.

    Here is what I know - he recognized me as an individual not just a case, he recognized my issue and that it impacted me, He successfully resolved my legal issue.
