Bob is an excellent and brilliant attorney. He is expensive but worth every dollar that he charges. He is extremely knowledgeable about family law and a dogged fighter. He is accessible, comes to court punctually and extremely friendly. My spouse was asking for heaven and earth and a pint of my blood, Bob came to my rescue and saved me from financial ruin.
In the course of his representation, I met other attorneys at the Hackensack court cafeteria and they congratulated me for picking the best family attorney out there.
I wanted to take the time to write this review as I cannot exaggerate how happy I am with Bob Corcoran and his associate Sara. I do not hesitate to say that Bob and Sara offer premium legal services of the highest order. As a lawyer myself and graduate of Harvard Law School, I believe it is fair to say that I have a reasonably good sense of what constitutes a good lawyer - and there is no doubt that both Bob and Sara are such. In my own case, a custody dispute, I wanted the absolute best as nothing was more important to me than my children. As I researched and asked other attorneys regarding recommendations, I was pointed to Bob several times as the preeminent lawyer with respect to family law. After I met with Bob for the first time, I could tell immediately that he was indeed very well-versed in all aspects of family law, and so I retained him. From that point on, both Bob and Sara were tenacious, responsive, and proved supremely competent with respect to all aspects of my complicated case. Each of them mastered all of the myriad details of my case quickly, drafted legal briefs (which, as a lawyer myself, I found to be of very high quality and persuasive) and similarly provided with me excellent advice regarding legal strategy. The wisdom of this advice became more than apparent just a few short months into the litigation. Bob's 30+ years of experience was the most evident in the courtroom (he was always present in person at every hearing), where he was quick on his feet and was clearly in control. I have read some of the other reviews on this website, and have a hard time believing they are genuine. The type of services these other people describe are nothing like what I experienced. I highly recommend both Bob and Sara to anyone and everyone. To put it simply, if you want it done right, there is no better way to go.
Told me how great he was in our consultaion, took my $5,000 retainer and never saw him again. Was passed off to equally incompetent associate Karen. I would never use either attorney again. These two give all attorneys a bad name.
° Watch for bate and switch...Once you get pushed to an associate you never see Bob again, good thing because he charges $500 an hour and not worth it
* Missed discovery dates to send out for financial bank records and annuities.
..leads you to believe when your almost X is on the stand and sworn in then he will bring everything out...he forgets to tell you 99% of divorces are settled out of court
* Ignores settlement offers - doesn't meet deadlines
* Watch for double billing Bob charges you everytime he talks to an associate And charges you for the associates time too.
* Doesn't care about your issues pushes you into a cookie cutter divorce..no matter what your circumstances
Worse yet the lawyer you hire to fix his mistakes
I first met him through a friend who seemed to be happy
i stupidly listened to every word he said and went a long
with his plan, in the end i did not get what he had promised me
and spent at least twice what i should have ..
as a smart women i am ashamed of myself for trusting him
I agree with the other reviewer, he did nothing for me in reference to negotiations, unreachable always too busy to talk for more than 10 min, did not follow through on anything had no documentation of what he did other than his word that he called the other attorney, did not care about my little case but definitely wanted a retainer... I was not impressed and fired him on the spot. Good luck!
