The Bastine Law Firm is an AWESOME LEGAL PRACTICE led by Ronique Bastine Robinson. I needed a knowledgeable, experienced, caring lawyer to handle my rather complicated divorce. What I got was a team of professionals with those qualities! Mrs. Bastine Robinson is articulate, efficient and result oriented! She took care of everything in a timely manner that really took all anxiety off my shoulders especially since I was also battling a major health issue. HIRE THIS LADY...YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT. Rest assured, she and her team will be your BEST ADVOCATES..... Dana Evans (formerly Parrish)

Living in my car, my life was in an uproar, I was completely stressed out, being faced with a divorce, based on nothing but untruths...Ronique Bastine Robinson, rescued me from a horrific situation , that was spiraling downward...My Attorney quickly calmed all of my fears and anxieties, with her keen ability to assess my situation, show compassion, and fast action planning. With her profound knowledge of the law, she was able to , expose the manipulator, and get everything we asked for from the judge, including spousal support, (we were married less than two years), and a peace of mind. Excellent in all of her ways, Ronique is "The Best Lawyer On This Side of Heaven!" Look no further; she is a , "For Sure Win."

Professional Representation
The entire legal process is uncomfortable from the embarrassment of someone showing up at random locations and serving you papers, to choosing a lawyer, to sitting quietly across from this other person you used to have a good relationship with who’s trying to destroy your character while your lawyer, a stranger, speaks on your behalf and fights for your legal stance, your reputation, your finances, and in my case, my livelihood! I was fortunate enough to have been referred to Attorney Robinson from a friend, and she understood me, my concerns, my family’s concerns, and best of all, I had the best lawyer in the room! She’s honest, professional, and extremely knowledgeable and has a strong staff to back her up. If you’re reading this, you probably don't have the luxury of a personal recommendation like I did, but take my word for it, if you want someone you can trust, who will understand the full picture of your situation, who knows what they’re talking about and will fight for you, look no further, I promise you will have no regrets!

Excellent Lawyer
Ms. Bastine represented me in the fight to retain my parental rights with my son. She represented me professionally, tireless, and assertively for 2 years against very high-powered and influential attorneys in numerous court battles and mediation sessions, and prevailed. She helped save my relationship with my son and kept me consistently in his life. Today, my son is a well-adjusted, flourishing student at a world-renown university and we have a very close relationship. Ms. Bastine kept me in his life at a time where it meant the most during his critical adolescent development.

Super Lawyer!
I had a family issue that a couple lawyers insisted there was nothing I could do until I found Mrs. Robinson who came highly recommended from a friend who stated that if anyone can figure it out, she can and she was right. She handled the situation quickly. She’s not cheap, and she shouldn’t be, and honestly, I would have paid triple to get the results we achieved. If you don’t want to take a chance with your sensitive matter, don’t waste time and money getting bs consultations. She spent an hour and a half with me in our initial consultation asking me questions I hadn’t even thought of and we came up with an effective strategy that she and her staff executed. I will always swear by her and her people.

Job Well Done
Mrs. Robinson and her firm were great to work with. They understood my situation clearly and helped me achieve the best that I could hope for in my divorce case. It was not an easy divorce but they were patient with me, understanding and knowledgeable about what I was going through. Even though I knew I had the last word in all major decisions, as I look back on things, Mrs. Robinson's advice clearly helped me make the best decisions. Hopefully I never have to use Mrs. Robinson again in a divorce proceedings, but if I do there would be no hesitation in retaining her again.

She was always concerned and made sure that I was awarded everything that I was entitled to in my divorce settlement. I'm grateful for all of her help, kind words and encouragement. I highly recommend Mrs. Bastine to anyone that is seeking legal representation.

Knows her craft!
Ronique was my divorce lawyer and knows her craft, to the letter of the law. She answered every question I had and was very upfront with what my likely outcome would be. During those difficult times in life, she was by my side the entire process. I am now a little over 3 years removed from my divorce and she still makes herself available to answer any lingering issues I may have. With that said, I do send people to talk to her that may be heading down that same road and ALWAYS WILL!

I am the youngest son of three boys and a product of a blended family. Born and raised in Third Ward. My father and mother both had a child before they came together to have me. They were both high school dropouts and teenage parents that came from large families. My father was 1 to 15 and my mother was 1 of 9. Even though they grew up poor and lacked financial resources, they were rich in love. My parents loved me in a way that is uncommon today. They were like potters. With great skill my father molded and shaped me in to the man he aspired to be. He did this by giving me love and discipline in a loving but firm manner. My mother’s love was applied like the appropriate amount of moisture to the mix. Her goal was to shape me into a man that would be the perfect husband and father: loving, kind, fair, fearless, hardworking, tender and compassionate. I was brought up in a family were love came in all forms and sometimes it was in the form of a spanking with a belt. This type of love allowed me to become the person I am today: proud father of 7, rising star at a global insurance company, international public speaker and life coach. Many people thought I was crazy for marring a woman with 4 kids. Nevertheless, I could see past the cost and complexity of a blended family to the beauty of a large productive family with the ability to change the world. On 6/23/2013, our family’s life came to a screeching halt. A series of events lead to the police coming to our home to mediate between my wife and I. During the conversation with the officer, we told them earlier in the day two children were spanked for a series of things that had taken place. One of my sons had been lying, stealing and blaming others for his actions. It was not my intention to leave mark on him while giving him a spanking but that resulted in me be arrested and charged with injury to a child under 15. The court restricted me from coming to my home for months at a time. After going to court for months with an attorney I thought was upright, I found out he was fighting his own charges for embezzlement. Not having the funds to fight the charges I took Deferred Adjudication at the direction of my attorney. My attorney said this shouldn’t affect my securities licenses. This was not the case. I lost my Series 6 and almost my job as a result of losing this license. I spent a few weeks in jail, paid $500 in fines, completed 200 hours of community service and completed a family services training course within 4 months of my 5-year probationary period. This was a challenge for the whole family because my wife was pregnant and we had two toddlers in our home. Later I was restricted access to my biological children. I though all hope was lost and that no one would understand or be able to help to help my family. All that changed when I spoke with Ronique. Within the first 5 min of speaking with her, she provided an expert diagnosis of my current situation and wrote a prescription for the cure. I didn’t know whether to cry or leap for joy. After reading the Motion she wrote on my behalf, I felt like Moses when he was holding the first set of Commandments written by GOD’s own hand. It was as if GOD penned/typed the words I was reading. It was truly a work of art and it was as if GOD inspired her to present me to the court the way everyone I know a love view me. It was unfortunate that I didn’t have her the first time I went to court; nonetheless, our family has grown as a result of this event in our lives. We were blessed to have Ronique come into our lives. She was the answer to my prayers!

Best attorney in Texas!
It's very hard to find a great attorney. My husband and I went through 3 attorneys before we found Ronique. After we hired her, we felt very confident and less worrisome. To this day Ronique will still be there for us at any time we when need advice. She's a very sweet and genuine person and doesn't just want your money. She actually cares and is very knowledgable with the law and will give you her best legal advice. Going forth in the future, she will be the only attorney we hire. We would recommend her to anyone.

$80k+ to this firm to lose
This firm only sees clients as a paycheck. Everything filed was done late or not at all, showed up hearings tired, “need more coffee” unprepared. Lost custody of my 2.5yo daughter to man with a court ordered failed drug test for amphetamines, over $24k in arrears child support, history of domestic abuse and arrested for sexual assault. They put in 4 pieces of evidence of 100+, didn’t call any of our witnesses, and said they don’t file frivolous motions when I asked for an appeal…turns out they did not preserve our case for appeal after reading the transcripts. This firm dug our family into a hole we are still fighting to get out of, absolutely awful.

Response from Ronique Robinson July 10, 2023
While I can't address the specific facts of your case due to my continued obligation to your privacy and attorney client privilege, I will say, it is unfortunate that you feel as you do about our services. We as a firm appreciate your feedback as we know that hearing from and responding to our clients only serves to improve our abilities to assist. We did give your case a considerable amount of time and attention and we were disappointed the judge did not rule in your favor more than a year ago. We did continue to fight for you and your daughter for several months thereafter and got you back in front of a different judge who did not exhibit any overt prejudice against you due to prior proceedings. We do wish you the best as we know that you will always place the needs of your daughter first and foremost. Good luck in your future endeavors.
