He doesn't return calls. Several times I called him and he literally hung up on me. I was referred to him by another attorney and I regret ever hiring him. In my custody case I got nothing I wanted. He failed to explain important precedings to me and was rude when I asked for clarifications about them. I regret hiring him.

I hired R B Pool to represent me in my divorce in Kaufman County. I trusted that he would cover everything I needed to know since I paid him $3,500 (and other lawyers in my community were $2,500). I thought by paying more I would get the best. He insulted me several times, his staff were some of the rudest people I have ever dealt with. Now two years after my divorce my ex husband passed away. There was a life insurance policy on my ex husband and Mr. Pool was aware of the policy because it was listed in my divorce. I was the beneficiary and my ex husband made the decision not to remove me as the beneficiary because we had a child together. After his death I was informed by Colonial Life Insurance that an ex spouse's rights as beneficiary are revoked due to divorce in the state of Texas. I called Mr. Pool's office to try to get help with the situation and again his staff was rude, I called several times, eight business days have passed and he never returned my call. The receptionist put another lawyer, Tina Hall on the phone with me who was equally rude and advised me it wasn't Mr. Pool's responsibility to tell me I would no longer be eligible as the beneficiary. Who's responsibility was it?? I am not a lawyer!! I don't know Texas laws, that's why I hired a lawyer. Now I'm having to hire an estate attorney to the tune of $5,000 to set up an estate and name me or my son as executor to claim the insurance policy. Unless you want to spend a lot of money and be treated like an inconvenience DO NOT HIRE THIS MAN!!!

I am the father in a divorce with children. He performed the mediation. I would not recommend him. He was instructed to implement guidelines support outside of mediation which he did not. It has been very expensive to correct.
