Robert Muriel accepted our case after the previous lawyer basically thought our case was not worth pursuing. He quickly got up to speed on what is a complex case and conducted more investigation. He constructed a compelling motion and represented us at trial with a successful outcome causing the judge to rule the defendants “not credible”. Robert subsequently completed a motion which resulted in our being awarded attorney fees from the defendant. He also filed another motion in the same case which involved a deceased elderly person and the proper execution of her will. This part of the case has not yet been decided by the court system. Robert is a very intelligent person who is very professional in his preparation, knowledge and ability to build a solid case with special attention to detail. His communication skills, follow through, presentation and prompt response to messages and emails is much appreciated. He has excellent writing and computer skills and is very efficient. He is able to explain legal terminology in layman’s terms. Our case has been complicated but Robert has been up to the challenge.

The most experienced attorney's and realtor's had NEVER heard of someone being in my situation. Even I still can't explain how it exactly happened; I was involved in multiple sales contracts for one property at the same time (thanks to an experienced but inept real estate attorney). Threatened by multiple law suits I was forced to hire outside counsel/litigation assistance. I was referred to Rob from an experienced litigator/friend of mine. In exceptionally short order Rob resolved the situation with minimal cost. Rob was actually quite a joy to work with; responsive, proactive, kept me abreast of ALL things with complete respect.
Rob has my 100% sincere recommendation. I trust him unequivocally.

Robert Muriel guided us through an unfortunate experience which turned out as well as it could have. He was articulate, practical, and knowledgeable. I would recommend his services without a doubt.
