    • I recommend Robert Zaniel.
    • I hired Robert more than 3 years ago.
    • Robert handled my Litigation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    Bob has tremendous experience and provides realistic prognoses of the outcome. He handled my divorce, and multiple related civil and domestic matters. One of which resulted in a hefty settlement.

    I'd give Bob 4.5 stars out of five, if it were an option.

  2. Do not pay fixed fee to this lawyer

    • I do not recommend Robert Zaniel.
    • I hired Robert more than 3 years ago.
    • Robert handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Don't believe what he said during the "free consultation" and his website. After I paid him the fixed fee, he took monthes for a very minimum work. He didn't answer your phone and took several days to respond few emails. He is totally not helpful but wants your money only!

    • I do not recommend Robert Zaniel.
    • I hired Robert 1-3 years ago.
    • Robert handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    He was unprofessional, unorganized, and unprepared. He only responds via email. He yelled at me for calling him. Don't bother calling him. He doesn't return them. I constantly had to ask him for status updates. He was very short with me and didn't answer my questions. I asked him to prepare me for court and he failed at that too.

  4. One of the Best!

    Bob Zaniel has tons of experience and is extremely savy. He will go to the mat for you if it is warranted but won't waste your money if you don't have a decent chance of winning. He is a skilled negotiator and got me a great settlement. He is very warm and personable and knows family law inside and out.

    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    If you need a divorce lawyer, look somewhere else. This guy is only looking for $$$. He is cluttered, unresponsive and willing to give in to the other side. Trust me from experience that he fails at everything. He will not listen and gives bad advise.
