The Best Lawyer
Divorce law is dramatically painful, and either you have been there or have experienced via someone close to you. We were fortunate to have Dena call us back within in 30 minutes on a Saturday. Dena spent nearly an hour on the phone free of charge. We were able to see her the following Monday and can’t be thankful enough for her having taken our case. Dena Taub is not your run of the mill divorce lawyer, when she takes your case, you are rest assured you will get the best results in your case, she responds timely, you have access to her out of work hours, she will provide you your documents as they come, and keep you in the loop so you can deal with the rest of your life. Importantly Dena is a fighter, yet professional, ethical, and well respected in the Courts; It is nice to be complemented by the Judge on your lawyer. You will never know when your case will become complicated and costly, so don’t waste your time with other lawyers who will screw up your case and then you will have to find yourself another lawyer who you hope will do the job right. No one can do what Dena can, her experience is second to none. Dena won’t let you down, she is always a step head of the other side and will even seek out other law consultants in the different fields on your behalf if needed and lots of times free of charge. Other lawyers will just tell you “it is not my expertise and you will have to (on your own) ask a tax lawyer or a real estate lawyer, etc...” Plus, very rarely do you get 2 lawyers for the price of one. Dena’s partner is a superb criminal lawyer, who chimes in with helpful ideas. They are not the cheapest lawyers around, but they are truly worth several times their hourly rate and will save you money you would have spent on mistakes other lawyers will have made on your behalf. In my case, I was able to achieve my goal and thank them both for their relentless resilience in fighting on my behalf making this saga less dramatically painful.

Dena was everything I needed and more!
I cannot speak highly enough of Dena. She was patient, supportive, part mother, part aggressive attorney. She gave me advice and emotional support that helped me stand on my own two feet, ultimately giving me back my self confidence. She always had my best interests at heart, and I never felt that she was doing anything just to run up the clock - unlike my ex's attorney. Eventually, even my ex fired his attorney and had enough faith in Dena that she finished up our divorce for the both of us.

She found over 400,000 in hidden assets !
Can't say enough. The divorce affected the whole family as we knew the ex was hiding assets, we just couldn't prove it. Well, Dena came along and with her zealous representation and tenacity, she found the hidden account, proved the ex was a liar and was able to get my normally laid back Santa Monica cousin back to normal. HIRE HER! Dena Taub is simply the best.

A Real Spitfire!
I came to this attorney off a referral from one of her current opposing lawers. I met with Dena Taub over a year ago with horrible mess of a case. She listened to my family law case and told me what are next steps were. She always responded and followed threw with her impeccable litigation and overall knowledge of the law. Mrs. Taub treated my case like every person dreams of their case being handled. With compassion and aggression. After having more than three attorneys on my case, Mrs. Taub provided the best results. Thank you for all the hard work Dena! I extremely recommend this attorney if u want results quickly!

There are still Gems to be found in California
I came to Dena like I am sure most do, blindsided by a vengeful partner, penniless and almost homeless. Dena told me to relax and then spent the consultation listening to my crying, before stopping me mid sentence and explained that what he was doing was abuse and it needed to stop right away. She explained the divorce process to me, but really was tying to help me since she said her first priority was stopping the abuse. Well, she did manage to stop it and I am now staying in the house thanks to her help while getting some temporary support, while we wait to see how he wants to finish the case. She is a blessing in disguise and if you are ever in a place where you need someone to fight for you, she is the one to see.

Shouldn't be practicing law
I hired her for a complex child custody/support case because she seemed to be the only responsive and interested one in my case. After speaking to her I trusted she would be the right lawyer to represent me. My case was filed in correctly and continued and transferred to the right court house. I paid thousands for this mistake. She may seem very knowledgable and trustworthy and has a fear pitch but ultimately I was out tens of thousands and my stress level was through the roof because of her mistakes. She doesn't seem very knowledgable or experienced. She was admitted to the CA state bar just in 2011 but will tell you she's been practicing over 20 years. Prior to practicing in Ca she has practiced in Florida which is an entirely different state with different laws. Don't hire her. The results of my case were as if I never hired an attorney in the first place. I could have done all that she did and saved a lot of money. I'm contemplating calling the Bar on her as I feel I was ripped off mislead and conned. What kind of "experienced" attorney files a case incorrectly and then charges you $250/hr for it? She also lied about the retainer agreement every few days I was asked to pay a new retainer of $2000. She offered to do free work as a result of everything and never got back to me.

Waste of money and time
I contacted this lawyer because initially she seemed the most responsive. She even offered a long personal free consultation on phone and in person, all of which I realize now was a sale pitch. Once she received her retainer she was a completely different person, rude, blunt and basically in it for the money. It seemed that she did not understand the complexities of my case at all. I might as well have been dealing with a a complete stranger rather than some one who I poured my whole case out to. She gave me poor advice that lead to my case getting prolonged and more complicated and in the end when I confronted her I was told they were my decisions and it is not her fault if I make bad decisions. I would think that is why I hired a lawyer and gave her thousands of dollars so I get prevented from making bad decisions. If you are looking for a lawyer who will take an interest in your case and would represent you and your interests and is not out to cheat you of every dime than this is not the lawyer you are looking for. She made my divorce even more of a stressful period in my life.

"I endorse Dena Robin Taub. In Dena's responses in inquiries, I enjoy her no-nonsense approach, she cuts to the chase and gives bottom line and affirmative responses. She doesn't blow in the wind, and I appreciate her honesty and straightforwardness. I would not hesitate to recommend potential clients in the Sherman Oaks Area to her for family law advisement."
