    Robert is an excellent lawyer. I have had an opportunity to work with him on a criminal matter, and his approach to the client was with true compassion and willingness to help. He put the client first. Robert's knowledge of the law and the system gives me great confidence to refer cases to him in both criminal law and personal injury.
