    • I do not recommend Robert Opalka.
    • I hired Robert more than 3 years ago.
    • Robert handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    He was supposed to be representing me in our divorce but he always did things so as "not to upset" my ex-husband. He was more concerned about the well being of my ex, not me. My younger son had been living with his father (and I was paying child support!) until he was told to find someplace else to live. When my son came to live with me, I asked Mr Opalka to stop the child support. He "kept forgetting" to do that and my ex continued to get the support money (which was automatically deducted from my paycheck). After 2 1/2 months I called Mr Opalka's partner and she immediately filed the papers. Mr Opalka dragged out my divorce MUCH longer than it should have been. When I spoke with his partner, she immediately filed the final divorce paperwork also and the divorce was finalized very soon afterwards. I paid him a LOT of money and he totally let me down!

  2. Wonderful, Helpful, friendly attorney.

    • I recommend Robert Opalka.

    The reviewer named "Tish" was advised not to move and insisted on doing so. She was specifically warned of the dangers of moving in a custody case. She was not happy with the advice and was finally told to do what she wanted and the relationship was terminated.

  6. NEVER USE AGAIN!

    Used in a divorce and custody case, drew up bills and didn't help. Told me one thing, courts then were irrate when I did what he told me... ie moving before going to court. Then would say never told you that. Says one thing, then rescinds on word.
