I hired Lee & Rivers LLP while I was going through my divorce in 2012. Since the beginning of my case, Attorney Rivers had the knowledge and patience for all my calls and visits to his office. His lawyer's service and relationship skills were above my expectations and beyond what was described to me by a friend of mine. He was exactly what I wanted: knowledgeable, well connected, fierce and effective. Initially, he reviewed my case and guided me throughout the process. Attorney Rivers and his office staff were incredibly knowledgeable and accommodating! They were very prompt in all correspondence and kept us informed every step of the way. Made our family feel very valued, respected and represented at their fullest capability!
I can't say enough positive things. From the very first meeting they helped me with a difficult situation. I would recommend Robert J. Rivers, Jr. from Lee & Rivers LLP to anyone needing help with a problem in the scope of family law litigation.
Bob Rivers is a brilliant, hard working, savvy and compassionate attorney who has tremendous expertise in Family Law. My case was financially complicated and Bob worked hard to enforce my rights. He was relentless in pursuing every avenue available for getting me the best possible outcome. Bob knows when and whom to enlist in outside help when necessary, as in my case, an equally talented forensic accountant. He was always prompt and available when I needed to speak with him. Witnessing Bob's keen mind navigate the very dense and tangled components of my case with tremendous acumen and agility was the silver lining of the horrific ordeal of divorce. He's a valuable asset to his profession!
After interviewing several law firms, I decided to hire Robert Rivers and his firm to represent me. I was facing a highly contencious divorce and needed someone who not only was compassionate, but more importantly knowledgeable. Bob's excellent character, work ethic, focus, and overall legal abilities are outstanding! If your looking to retain one of the best and well respected attorneys in Boston, I highly recommend Bob Rivers. Terrific trial attorney as well.
Bob Rivers came highly recommended from a work friend so when I was served custody modification papers last September, I knew who to call. Bob has not disappointed. He is highly professional, ethical and extremely knowledgable in family law. I can't imagine going through this stressful ordeal without him.
At our first meeting, Bob listened to my story and asked pertinent questions to learn what was important to me. For me, my teenagers and their best interest were what was important. Bob assured me that he and his legal team would work hard for what was fair and right and most importantly he would work hard to help me protect my children. His communication skills are beyond compare, not only does he explain complex legal issues to me in language I can understand, he skillfully writes legal documents and adeptly communicates our points in front of the judge. Having Bob next to me in court is such a relief because he works extremely hard, prepares very well and delivers our arguments with expert skill and confidence.
For Bob, the bottom line is helping me achieve the best settlement for me and for my kids best interests. He is open to recommending mediation or a settlement if that would work instead of a costly trial. Bob has tried to keep my costs down when he can as he knows how financially hard legal battles can be. Bob thinks about his clients first.
I am still in the midst of my case, but I am so happy to have Bob Rivers as my attorney. I trust Bob Rivers immensely and I would highly recommend him if you ever need a family lawyer.
Working with Bob Rivers was the best decision I have made-
Bob and his team are confident, compassionate and efficient. I always felt like I was in good hands while working with Bob, and my intuition was right-he brought a practical sense to the table and did not over litigate a difficult situation. I was very happy with my outcome from the cost point of view but more importantly a fair outcome of my divorce. At a time when your financial life lies in the balance, this is the person you want in your corner.
I have referred others to Bob and they have had similar experiences.

Bob came highly recommended by one of his colleagues, and I quickly came to understand why. Bob was very responsive, straightforward and rational during a very difficult time. Having never gone through a divorce before, Bob was patient in explaining the entire process, thorough in evaluating several different scenarios, and realistic about the outcome. During the entire proceeding, Bob’s advice and guidance were invaluable. Bob was able to move the process along quickly once my ex-wife and I came to a resolution and understanding. I always felt well represented and very secure having Bob as my attorney.
I have recommended Bob to several friends that were very pleased with his professionalism and results and I would enthusiastically recommend Bob to potential clients.

Robert Rivers is a highly professional attorney. I have all the confidence in his ability to represent me or any other client. In a divorce case, facts and situations can be very sensitive to communicate to another person. Bob's professional and genuine demeanor immediately put me at ease to discuss the painful but necessary facts in my case. If you can't feel secure in revealing all the harmful and beneficial facts to your attorney, then you can not be thoroughly represented by the attorney. If I have a legal question that I ask of Bob via telephone or email, he responds to my concern in a manner which is understandable to me as the client and in a very quick turn around time frame. Bob has a diverse legal support team in areas of specific expertise that have been helpful to my case, specifically to me was the area regarding the financial investigative area. One distinguishing characteristic is Bob's ability to honestly express his assessment of my legal position, whether it is good news or bad news. He would never placate me by pursuing a poor legal direction which I fancied in order to profit and produce more billable hours. He presents clearly both sides of a legal position, so a decision can be made reasonably and for my full benefit. I also am confident that Bob will represent me with full zeal. He thoroughly advises me on how I should ethically and prudently conduct myself to warrant the best result in my case.

I retained Robert Rivers as an attorney for an especially contentious divorce in 2008 - 2009, and was extremely pleased with the work that he did, and the results that he achieved. He is an exceptionally skilled attorney, took the time to explain the challenges that would be faced, the path he would take to assist me, and the different options I might consider taking.
Throughout a very long, and difficult process, he never failed to anticipate issues, quickly respond to my questions, concerns, and provide essential guidance. From the very first meeting, which he graciously agreed to take with short notice, I felt I had a chance.
As a father who had been a primary caregiver for my son, I had chosen a career path that was somewhat unconventional, and one that the opposing counsel had attempted to diminish, and discard. Divorce litigation, within the confines of the family court process is probably one of the most complex, and alien environments a citizen can find himself in. The speed with which the process moves, and the finality of the "temporary" orders are processes that are not initially clear to a person entering the court without counsel. I was grateful Robert Rivers was on my side.
Robert Rivers performed at the very highest levels in the preparation of pleadings, interrogatories, negotiations, and before the Judge as my advocate. Everything changed for me, for the better, when he stepped up to accept my case, and advocate on my behalf. He successfully defended me, my life, and the custody of my son. His efforts made a positive difference in my life.
I recommend him completely.
