    • I recommend Robert Valentine.
    • I hired Robert 6-12 months ago.
    • Robert handled my Family matter.

    I went through one of the toughest times of my life with a recent family situation regarding my ex wife and children. Without going into detail, Mr. Valentine took the time to help me understand my options and a way I could work with my ex wife. As it turns out, I was able to reclaim visitation rights and be a part of my children growing up.

  2. Adoption Birth Certificate

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

    We were searching for a birth certificate from an adoption in the 70's & Mr. Valentine instead of a thorough search on his part proceeded with a legal name change costing me $1700.00 with no birth certificate. 3 months later my daughter did her own search & teceived her birth certificate in her adopted name for $23.00 through the Dept of Health in N.Y.!!! Valentine had the audacity to ask why did we search N.Y. after having all the onformation from me in writing. I asked repeatedly for him to call me & never heard from him. I should have reported him to the bar & still have time to do that. I was furious at how I was ignored. I even had to drive from GA to Lakeland to get an imvoice for charges incurred. My son lives in Lakeland & also had to "stop in" more than twice for results. This guy gives lawyers a worse name than they already have!

    • I recommend Robert Valentine.
    • I hired Robert more than 3 years ago.
    • Robert handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I was in the worst nightmare of my life. My husband was living four states away when he filed for a divorce and wanted to pursue custody of our 20-month-old daughter. I had hired three attorneys before I found Mr. Valentine. He took my case not even 2-months before my final hearing. He listened to my every word and got caught up with my case in no time. He knew exactly what I wanted. He was my voice. I could not have done better if I spoke for myself. He is the first honest, experienced, gentleman attorney I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

    His staff, well, they are perfect too! They are always warm and friendly rather I am on the phone or visiting the office. They never try to hurry me off the phone or cut me short - no matter how many questions I have. They never make me feel as if my questions are not important. They give Mr. Valentine all my messages and he promptly returns my calls.

    You know the saying “save the best for last”? Well, that definitely applies in this case. If you are looking for a divorce/ child custody attorney, well, this is your guy. Do not waste your TIME or MONEY on anyone else. I have made him my attorney for life.
