Matias Jose Rueda


About me

Most of my work is in traditional, litigated divorces. I prefer the former because it is (in my opinion) a less expensive and more efficient process which gives the divorcing couple the opportunity to improve their communications, settle their disputes with dignity and preserve valuable family relationships. 

Even in emotional circumstances, I help resolve your divorce through mediation, allowing you a strong voice in the outcome. But we are also prepared to take your case to court if that will provide the best resolution. I handle divorce cases involving a broad spectrum of clients, from those who are struggling financially and are facing divorce and foreclosure of their home to clients who have significant assets and property which they need to protect.

Call our firm now for a consultation and we will assist you every step of the way.  (512-931-4LAW)

  • Sarah Balaparya

    I fully endorse Mat Rueda as a family law attorney in the Austin area. I had the pleasure of working with him on a paternity action. His demeanor throughout the case allowed for us to work diligently for our respective clients, who walked away happy and content, as we reached an agreement at mediation. He encompasses vast knowledge about the Texas Family Code and is passionate about his clients.
