I was referred to Rob by my attorney when we realized we needed assistance with litigating the settlement of an estate. Due to the size and complexity of the assets and participants involved, Rob was recommended due to his knowledge of the matters at hand, his experience and his aggressive performance in the courtroom. He teamed easily with my attorney and together they worked through a very difficult uphill battle. Keeping me informed regularly, he would patiently explain the latest development, explain my options and make recommendations. Our team achieved a great victory and we couldn't have come out better. I wholeheartedly recommend Rob for anyone anticipating time in court.
Despite my doubts about the utility of any online reference or evaluation service, Mr. Carlson of Caldwell and Watson is worthy of high recommendation. Having dealt with a number of firms and attorneys, Carlson and his firm are standouts in acumen and craft. My experience throughout was consistently informed, involved, and engaged.
Two lawyers recommended Robert Carlson to me, each describing him as an outstanding litigator. I have been his client for nearly four years and his representation of me has far exceeded---and continues to exceed my expectations. Mr. Carlson's collaborative approach to the attorney/client relationship is central to his practice and sets him apart from other lawyers. He is a tireless advocate and, exceedingly important, he listens. He wants his clients to fully understand each step of the process and encourages them to be involved. He maintains an open and ongoing dialogue and is always ready and willing to explain difficult aspects of the case --- or the not so difficult. I know from experience that no question is too small or insignificant for him to devote his time and attention to providing a comprehensive answer. On more than one occasion he has included with his explanation a copy of the text of particular case law. Mr. Carlson's follow-through is exemplary as is his follow-up with his clients He is consistently reliable and responsive, replying to e-mails immediately and seamlessly passing on to the client information he has received pertaining to the case. He can always be counted on to be accessible. If he will be out of the office for a trial or other reason he informs his clients; and in his absence his outstanding legal assistants provide any timely information and pass on to him any questions. Mr. Carlson's skills, experience, knowledge, and his record of success have earned him the respect of his colleagues and the confidence of his clients. Because of his integrity, his judgment and his exceptional practice of law, Rob Carlson has earned my complete confidence and trust.
Rob has represented us in a very professional manner as defendants in probation of a will that included claims of undue influence, lack of capacity, fraud, and breach of fiduciary duty. His representation has always been first-class and we felt confident from the beginning that he truly excels in his field. His communication skills are excellent, he always thinks ahead, stays focused, is supportive, and it has been a pleasure to work with him. WIthout hesitation, we highly recommend him to anyone needing legal representation involving any aspect of estate matters and litigation. His commitment to excellence is unquestionable.
Rob Carlson is a fine example of a professional in his practice of the law.
In a lengthy (2 years) litigation that carried all the way to the State Supreme Court our family felt, even with his busy schedule, that he was providing the best of representation for our side. During many contacts, emails and phone conversations over that period of time, you become very aware of a persons ability and knowledge along with his desire to do a good job for his client. Rob never disappointed at any point in our case, a case that we did eventually prevail.
I have referred other clients to him lately and they to were very pleased with the representation he provided for them.
He a fine lawyer a a real credit to his profession and we felt fortunate in having him represent us.
Rob is accessible, competent and diligent. We have worked on several matters and this is very consistent. I highly recommend him.
