“Exceptional Attorney Who Exemplifies Truth, Integrity and Compassion”
Several years ago, when it became apparent that I would need a divorce attorney, I was fortunate enough to meet Dale. While he came highly recommended by close friends, I had no idea what an integral and important role he would play in helping me gain confidence and stand on my own two feet again.
From our first consultation, his genuine concern, attention to detail and thoughtful demeanor helped to ease my stress and anxiousness about the divorce process. Dale educated me on the legal procedure itself and what to expect in addition to providing me guidance so I could make educated decisions with assurance.
Dale communicated brilliantly with me on a number of levels. Due to my work, I was often unable to make appointments during regular business hours. Dale made an extra effort to ensure that he communicated directly with me via e-mail or when it was convenient for me on the phone. I never felt out of the loop or confused about what was happening.
With Dale as my attorney, not only did I survive my divorce, I was able to breathe again knowing someone was looking out for my interests above their own. I consider myself incredibly fortunate to have had Dale as my divorce attorney.

“One of the best attorneys in Florida”
I am thankful Reuben was my attorney during my divorce experience. I hired Reuben to represent me during a very contentious and lengthy divorce which, due to no fault of Reuben’s, was perpetuated by my malicious and litigious ex-spouse. Through years of motions, hearings, depositions, mediations, and trials, Reuben remained diligent and dedicated to doing everything within his power and the law to protect my best interest and those of my children. Reuben skillfully navigated through my high-conflict divorce, child custody/visitation issues, child support issues, and alimony issues with great professionalism, knowledge, and experience. And when the time arose, Reuben’s expertise, skill, and integrity were never more evident than when he was in court litigating.
I proudly recommend Reuben to all my friends.

“Excellent family law attorney – highly recommend !”
Dale did a great job on my family law case. Dale is a pro. Very well prepared for trial. I couldn’t have said closing arguments better myself. I felt like I won my case because I had a very good attorney who represented me very well. Highly recommend.

“Reuben Doupe Is A True Professional”
I hired Reuben over 5 years ago to initiate, negotiate and settle my divorce. My divorce was extremely high conflict, resulting in many emails, child custody issues, and court dates. Reuben was always available to take my calls, emails and concerns. If he was not in the office, his paralegal was always on standby to relay messages and respond within hours. I am very impressed with this attorney and have recommended him in the past to many people. People need to realize that divorce is ugly and painful. We will not always get our way, but the attorneys are there to offer a middle ground. A client’s only hope is that they have a truthful, honest, and knowledgeable attorney to lead them through the darkness of divorce, so that they will come out in the light. I stand by [Reuben] like he stood by me.

“Outstanding Attorney With The Highest Level of Integrity, Knowledge, And Service”
After my (ex) spouse filed for divorce, I knew I was in for a bitter battle. I quickly realized that I had to find the right family law attorney; otherwise the results for me could have been devastating.
I met Dale after interviewing several other local attorneys who had been highly recommended. While the other attorneys had a solid reputation in the community, none of them left me with the impression that they would give my case the personalized attention that I was looking for.
Many attorneys have a “seen it before – I know what to do” type of mentality. But hey, this was MY LIFE, so I needed somebody who would work directly with ME, and not simply process paperwork.
My case involved several complex issues – property and other significant asset valuations, parenting plan disputes, and a spouse full of vengeance and unrealistic expectations. Dale worked closely with me on all issues, and helped navigate me through the divorce battlefield in such a manner that I was confident that I was making informed decisions on how to proceed. The communication between Dale and me was outstanding. The same held true with his support staff. There was never a time when a call went unanswered, and I always felt that my case was his top priority.
As mentioned earlier, my case had a number of complex issues. Dale demonstrated a keen ability to interpret legal matters, and explain them to me in terms that I could readily understand. Dale also knew when it was the right time to bring in outside experts, and he had all the right connections.
By the time my case was set for mediation, I was confident on where to stand my ground. Dale represented me with tenacity and integrity. He was very persuasive and clearly articulated my position on matters. I could tell that the Mediator knew we were properly prepared, and that we had very defendable positions. We were ultimately able to settle the case without having to go to trial, for which I was very grateful.
Ironic as it may sound, I truly consider my divorce to be a success. It would not have been so without the services of Dale Klaus. I highly recommend contacting him if you are looking for a family law attorney.
