Robert Sunshine is the epitome of who a lawyer should be. Robert effectively handled my difficult divorce and child custody case. After meeting with a few attorneys, a friend recommended I speak with Robert. The second I left his office, I knew I made the right decision. His demeanor immediately put me at ease. He was compassionate and understanding to my emotional situation. His pervasive knowledge of the law proved to be the key role in the successful outcome of the proceedings. Robert fights effectively and wholeheartedly for his clients and never once did I feel like just a paycheck. His continued support and communication , regarding my case, throughout the process assured me that I was in the most capable hands possible. I am forever grateful to him for the care in which he handled my case.
I recently obtained Mr. Robert Sunshine to handle a divorce and child custody/support case for me. I was extremely satisfied with our ability to work together and the outcome of the case. Robert Sunshine is knowledgeable, professional and excellent at communicating with his clients. He proceeds with care for his clients and always explains pieces thoroughly. As Mr. Sunshine is extremely approachable, his manner is conducive for clients who are savvy and also those who need more thorough explanation in areas. It is clear why he has an outstanding reputation. I have referred several people to Mr. Sunshine in the past few months. He is someone I would turn to without hesitation in the future.
I was provided with Mr. Sunshine's name from the Center of Safety and Change. Previously I had called a local attorney whom I had seen in court many times during a divorce. That attorney I had referred several clients to and went to the initial meeting with one of them. (point is he knew me) 3 of them retained him. He refused to meet with me for 20 minutes to see if I should go forward unless I gave him a retainer.
I consulted Mr. Sunshine a few times regarding a unusual support issue. He gave me great advice was very knowledgeable and even took the time to research case law on the matter and personal get back to me. Mr. Sunshine wouldn't even take a retainer from me as he felt I could handle the first step on my own rather then paying him. He even asked me to follow up with him after the court date. When I did he gave me direction and answered my questions. He doesn't talk down to me and showed a lot of compassion. He wasn't a money hungry lawyer that viewed a client as a dollar bill with a name. I will 100% retain him when we get to that step and have and will continue to speak highly about him.
In the 25 + years of law enforcement experience I have, brilliance of Mr. Sunshine's calibre I have never seen. He is quick, sharp, direct, and cost effective. Leaving his office you know you are in the right hands. There was never a moment that I felt out of the loop on my litigation. If this law firm cant get what you need done in the legal arena, than it CAN'T be done.
Robert handled a summary proceeding for me and quickly and inexpensively obtained the result I wanted when others before him had failed. I would highly recommend him as a lawyer. Great job!
