Mitchell is absolutely the best lawyer I've ever had the pleasure to deal with. He returned calls promptly and was always available to discuss our case. He was caring, knowledgeable, and courteous. I would highly recommend him to anybody, and I have! His entire staff is just as courteous as well.

Mitchell's ability to present a case in a precise, well thought-out, organized fashion is among the best I have seen (both in writing and verbally at hearings, trial, etc.). He has incredible knowledge of the law which results in fewer "research" hours. His rates are very fair, and he does not overstate the amount of time he spends on case-related tasks. I have worked with many attorneys over the past 20 years, and he is the only one I trust to handle my personal matters.

Our Legal Guardian Angel…..
Mitchell and his team stood by us through this tough time. We are a same sex married couple who made the choice to expand our family through adoption. TWICE. Mitchell took our hands and guided us through this arduous process. Nothing like the previous attorney who was insensitive to our needs. He picked up the ball where it was dropped by the previous incompetent attorney. Mitchell is not only our attorney he is our friend. The whole journey brought us together. We will never be able to thank him enough. He has a family of his own. He knows and understands what you are going through.
The Katine team is a full service firm, We will be enlisting him to now protect our future with trusts and etc… We love and trust them with all of our hearts!

We could not be any more appreciative of how Mitchell helped our family. Prior to meeting Mitchell we had been in the adoption process for well over 1 year and $10,000 in lawyer fees without even a court appearance. Mitchell presented us a with a plan that included a timeline and a cost estimate; both of which he delivered. He had our adoption completed within a month and for half of what we already paid our previous lawyer. Mitchell is a great lawyer you can trust and delivers results. Thank you Mitchell

Back in about 1996 or 1997, my late partner and I had attended several free evening classes that were sponsored, I believe, via either AFH, [Aids Foundation Houston], or what is now known as Legacy Community Health Services regarding what persons should do to protect themselves financially and medically just after discovering that they were recently diagnosed with either HIV+ or AIDS. These classes was taught by Mitchell Katine.
Although his services were in high demand even back then Mitchell Katine KNEW how important it was for each of us that could not afford counsel to teach us about holographic wills in addition to the how to and what it would take to fill out the 10+ page form for Social Security Disability and covering oneself for medications during the interim waiting period.
My partner and I followed his directions to the letter and neither of us had any difficulty whatsoever getting approved for SSD nor getting the life sustaining medications that we both needed until we were eligible for SS Part D.
When my partner passed in 2001, the holographic will held up in Probate Court and I had no issues left to resolve with my partner's family members. It was an amicable process and resolution.
They became seamless processes all due to this man's dedication to the community-at-large and empowering each of us to research and discover all that we needed to get through the battles ahead. If it was not for Mitchell Katine my life would be very different to this very day.
I am thankful that Mitchel Katine had taken the time out of his busy schedule to reach out to us, to show us the way so that we would not have the hurdles that he knew so many in our community had to jump over to get the life sustaining medications and services that we so desperately needed.
He knew that for many of us that grew up without privilege nor had great financial wealth would be able to make the best of what he had to offer us back then - and we did!
Mitchel, this is a personal THANK YOU for what you have done for me and I am very grateful for what you had taught me. That empowerment has carried on through other areas of my life as well and I am now able to help others that are going through those processes by being able to point them in the right direction and by proxy they are also thankful to you.
Our time in that class was quite limited and I am most likely one of the nameless faces that you have encountered or acquainted yourself with over the years but I personally consider you a friend.
I highly recommend this man, Mitchell Katine, for any legal counsel that you may need in his areas of expertise. If I could afford it I would hire him again on the spot. Mitchell is far more worthy of having as a personal attorney than any rate schedule.
Best Wishes and Highest Regards,
Jim B. - Houston, Texas

He has been very responsive, sensitive to my needs, wise enough to bring in additional counsel when necessary, and understood and appreciated my desire to spend time and money only as truly needed.

Mr. Katine handled my STD and LTD disability in 2008. He was extremely knowledgeable and walked me through step by step during the process. My short term and long term disability was approved as well as my social security disability. He seems to really care about his clients and always answered and followed up with questions.
In the beginning of 2012 my social security disability was reviewed and my benefits were cancelled. I immediately contacted Mr. Katine and he referred me to Benjamin Ha in his office. Via teleconference Mr. Hu went through my paperwork and gave me advice on the appeals process. He was very knowledgeable about social security disability. I followed his advice and my appeal was approved.
I highly recommend both Mr. Katine and Mr. Hu for LTD disability and Social Security disability.

Mr. Katine and his staff handle all homeowner association matters in the Houston area for my company and have done so for the past 3 years. They are, without reservation, the best I've found in this area, and I have no hesitation in recommending Mr. Katine, whether the Association is developer-controlled or homeowner-controlled. To the above list of characteristics, I would add both "congenial" and "cooperative," both with a mark of "Excellent."
