If your looking for a honest, reliable and professional attorney…
My brother passed away 2 1/2 years ago. He had a Will and a Personal Representative to oversee the distribution of his estate. Upon his passing his PR suddenly lawyered up and cut all communications with myself and younger brother we are both heir’s as is the PR. The environment got very hostile, I could never get straight answers from the PR or her attorneys. So I decided to see if I could get some legal advise. I found a web site which offered free legal assistance, I submitted the questions I needed answered and waited for a reply… Robert Murillo answered my questions this guy is restored my faith in the legal profession . He listened to me and then told me what my options were, I was impressed and hired him that was around the end of January 2024 it’s now 2/25/2024 and I will be receiving my inheritance possibly as soon as next week! This guy takes his job very seriously and gets results. Robert did everything he said he would do for me and much more.

Helped with settling a business loan/personal guarantee
Mr. Murillo was very instrumental in helping me to settle a business equipment lawsuit that involved my personal guarantee. Initially I defended myself as I thought the cost to hire a lawyer would have been prohibitive. As the case grew more complex, I reached out to Mr. Murillo who helped me understand the complexities of the case, and what I needed to do to settle the case without a judgment being awarded against me. His fees were reasonable and he went above and beyond what I expected, and genuinely took an interest in helping me. I would hire Mr. Murillo again if needed, and highly recommend his services.

Thank you for taking your time to answer.
Going through this isnt easy and i must assume providing feedback is not easy either. I really wish i knew the key to unlock an Erin Brockovich type of attorney because in what i described people in similar situations definitely need help from lawyers like her depiction. Again thank you for your time and i really wish she could hire someone like you.

Robert is Knowledgeable and Professional. Highly Recommend!
Robert has provided me outstanding advice in a very difficult real estate fraud case. He is very knowledgeable and his experience shows. I would recommend Robert to anyone needing his expertise. I have spoken to many attorneys throughout my lawsuit and I can honestly say Robert was quick to pick up the claims in my case without me having to explain everything in detail again. Thank you Robert!

Quick, concise, responsive
Robert is very responsive, which for potential matters that require legal consultation, can be an asset. I had a non-compete document reviewed and advice given based on this. I wouldn't hesitate to consult Robert again if the situation arises.

Eviction process
Very informative response. John was extremely detailed on the eviction process as my landlord did not renew my lease; however wanted me out by the end of the month. Thanks for giving useful advice.

Genuine Care
I was looking for pro-se legal advice and Mr. Murillo responded very promptly. I even had a follow-up question to my matter and again he responded promptly. He clearly has a passion for what he does and for people which is demonstrated by giving of himself on Avvo. I hope I'm speaking true when I say the world needs more attorneys like you. God Bless!

Instant stress reduction
Being a single income family with a toddler is stressful enough without a Demand for Rent of Possession being cowardly taped to my door. Stress levels went up again when the Summons of Detainer magically showed up days later. With rent money just days away, I questioned the legality of the service procedures, so I came straight to Avvo. Robert put my mind at ease with his response in simple, easy to understand terms. If I could give this man a hug, I'd probably squeeze him till he burst. Please consider hiring this man, you won't regret it.

Civil case
I would highly recommend Mr. Murillo as an attorney to represent you. His knowledge of the law and honesty was wonderful. I live in Arizona but my case was in Colorado. He was able to advice me and help me prepare for court as a pro se. By phone. In the end all five claims against me we're dropped and that wouldn't of been possible with his guidance.
