We first approached Robert about a custody issue. From the beginning he listened to our dilemma with direct attention and positive suggestions. He was warm and always willing to handle our case the way we wanted to proceed, rather than bulldozing us with his approach. He worked on our case on the weekends, his wonderful paralegals assisting him every step. He stayed in great touch with us, constantly letting us know where he was at, anything we could do to help or what our next step could be if we wanted to move forward. Every step of the way Bob and his team have fought for us in court and believed in our case wholeheartedly. We always feel so welcome when we walk into the office, greeted as if old friends and leave feeling recharged as we continue on this journey; it is a great comfort having Bob in our corner.
