    • I do not recommend Ruby Bolton.
    • Ruby handled my Child Custody matter.

    This attorney prepares and submits paperwork to the court before allowing defendants to review! Ms Bolton sent notices about trial two days after the trial date'! If you are hiring this attorney or opposing council I would recommend preparing all documents for court because in my case she does things sloppily and conniving !

    • I recommend Ruby Bolton.
    • I hired Ruby 1-3 years ago.
    • Ruby handled my Real Estate matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    New to the area I was unsure who to call. Very pleased I found Ruby Bolton very knowledgeable, communicated to me exactly what the issues were. I am blessed to have found her. She got me in right away because I had a deadline, and resolved the issue in a professional and swift manner.

    • Ruby handled my Elder Law matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I highly recommend Ruby Bolton. She was retained during a very stressful elder care / elder rights situation. Met with her within a few hours of first call. She promised to act swiftly to cure an egregious situation concering my aunt's elder rights, and she did so. The difficulties were solved wihtin only a few hours, and we continue to consult her concerning elder rights and other issues.
    Ms. Bolton returns calls promptly. Her receptionist will advise when she is in court and when she will be able to return call or schedule a meeting. When she promises to do something, she follows through with courtesy and effectiveness.
    I am very happy to have Ms Bolton representing us in this matter.

    • I recommend Ruby Bolton.
    • I hired Ruby more than 3 years ago.
    • Ruby handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Ruby represented me in a custody battle for my son. She prepared me perfectly for the trial and we ended up with the perfect resolution. She knows her stuff. Only negative thing to say is I needed to meet with her late at night and on weekends because of my work and she seemed hesitant. (although she did it).

    Ruby Bolton was extremely helpful in closing my grandmother's estate!! She truly goes the extra mile when helping clients! She is knowledgeable, courteous, and friendly--everything that you want in a lawyer! She is more than generous with her time, and her fees are reasonable. Not sure what's wrong with the other reviewers--I thought Ruby was amazing!

    • Ruby handled my Family matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I was charged $1,700 for taking up a few hours of her time and drafting some subpar paperwork. Consulted with a different attorney after terminating her services. This gentleman presented himself much better and spent double the time with me. I ultimately chose not to pursue legal action and I was not charged a penny by the second attorney.

  7. Better attorneys out there : (

    Very slow and poor communication. Better communication on her part could have prevented the miscommunication or misunderstanding and saved this attorney a lot of time that she claimed she spent on my file, which of course she than passed the charges on to me.

    After years of domestic violence, Ruby Bolton placed me in a mediation room with my abuser. Mrs. Bolton then had me agree to conditions that were not in the best interest of my children.

    I had paid the Bolton Law Firm 10 K. Three days before trial, Mrs. Bolton told me if I did not pay an additional $6,303, before trial, she would withdraw. I could not come up with the additional funds and Ruby Bolton did not appear at trial. Ruby Bolton sent her law partner in her place.

    Not only was her law partner unprepared, I was repeatly charged for discovery, yet on the day of trial, no discovery was in my file. 100% of all martial assets and custody of my two daughters were awarded to my ex hushand. The ex husband, has multiple arrest and citations of domestic violence against three woman.

    The Texas Family Code states that a victim should not be placed in a mediation room with an abuser. Mrs. Bolton did not know the law, or simply did not apply the law. If you seek justice, I hope you pick a better attorney than Ruby Bolton.
