Great!
Ruben is great at what he does. From the moment we had our first conversation, you can tell he was knowledgeable and willing to work out what was best for the client. He listened, was attentive, and explained the process from start to finish and made sure to keep information updated, even throughout periods of waiting. I can not say enough good things about Ruben. If you are in need of honest, knowledgeable, and fair representation no need to look any further. He is a gem and I would highly recommend him.

Legal issues behind me
Ruben was there for me and my family when we needed help quickly. Legal issues are scary and outcomes are unpredictable. Ruben thoroughly explained the details of my case and gave me options to choose from on how to proceed. He was available to answer questions as new issues developed and ultimately concluded the matter to my satisfaction. Now I can move forward with my life with the legal issues behind me.

Kept in patience privacy and dealt with a lot of mind changes!!
In the end, (after about 1 and a half years of waiting!) Mr. R. Escobedo successfully articulated the things that would make me whole. I’m thoroughly impressed with the quality with which he made me look in advocating for what I felt was right. Thanks!!!

Review
Ruben Escobedo is a great lawyer as well as great human being. He helped me with a misclassified case. He helped me prove that my employer was in the wrong. To be a good lawyer you need to listen yo your clients, he does that he listens and he also does his researched. I gave him 5 stars because I couldn't give him 10. I would totally come to him for a second time.
