Roberta and her team did a very good job in a very difficult case concerning grandparents custody. She managed to get my wife and I a hearing when the courts did not have to give us one. In the end she gained us temporary custody of our grandsons and we have faith that in the future she will gain us full custody if the need arises.

Honest and straight forward. My initial consultation with Roberta provided direction and guidance that helped me make the best decision with respect to how to pursue the action that had been taken against me. I was kept up to date via e-mail and we had short phone conversations when necessary. During the time we spent in the courthouse, her knowledge of similar cases enabled us to affectively negotiate as she help lay out scenarios of all the "If/Then" questions I had. Her experience and drive resulted in me coming out ahead of what I had previously offered my ex-spouse as an acceptable solution. I hope to not need lawyer services again. But, if I do, I will contact Roberta.

I have had a child support order for 15 years, which has been accruing. My ex- spouse and I are on very good terms now, and have both agreed that I shouldn't pay anymore. We never did anything legally to make that happen, just went to court 5 years ago and had the arrearage eliminated, but the Judge wouldnt just eliminate order. I called some other attorneys in the past, but they didn't seem to either want to help, or made it more difficult that it was. Roberta had this handled within hours. I would highly recommend her. She has the upmost professionalism, and integrity.

I recently sued my ex-wife for custody of my daughter, and while I did not win, Roberta was instrumental in helping me attain more access to my daughter and further clarifying the responsibilities of my ex-wife. Roberta was very honest with me and never gave me unreasonable expectations of potential outcome. She, along with the paralegals in her office, were quick to respond to my questions and inquiries. I would absolutely recommend Roberta to anyone!

Me and my husband are more than dissapointed in Miss Roberta Roberts. She did not keep us updated and gave us the feeling that she does not take us or the questions that we have asked her serious! The retainer that we paid was empty within about 10 days and we received bills. When we took a closer look at the invoices we could see that she charged us for work that we did not ask for and we were also charged for printing out and reviewing e-mails that she obviously has not done what she accidentely admitted in one of the following e-mails.
She wrote a motion that was already filed new without our permission, charged us for that, we had to pay the court filing fee twice!! And also rescheduled a court hearing date without our knowledge what caused us more than one problem.
Oh and we asked her if we should send all our documents in e-mails or in the mail. She answerd in e-mails but did not tell us that she would later charge us a lot of money to print out all the e-mails and to make copies!! It would have been much cheaper and easier for us to send her all documents in the mail. We decided to tell her that we do not feel comfortable with not being updated and the billing situation. She answered short and actually pretty harsh and rude! We wanted to give her another chance to talk about it and the answer was that she dropped us as her client about 3 weeks before the court hearing!!
We were really lucky to find another attorney which takes us serious, keeps us updated and will attend us at court in a few days!

Very good at divorce court. I feel less stressed and very happy with her work. She makes sure her clients are taken care of.

Roberta is very knowledgable on Family Law. Her paralegal is very courteous as well as the rest of her staff. Sometimes a bit slow to respond(though she does respond when asked a question) I still recomment her highly. My case turned out with a better resolution than I had been expecting. I was very impressed with her professionalism.

I have recommended her several times she was excellent could not ask for a better attorney. My ex husband was a real piece of work and she never backed down and helped me stand my ground. She has an excellent staff behind her to that works hard for you as well. Hands down best law office around.

I recently found Roberta on a web search while I was in need of legal help in a divorce and custody battle. After speaking with her for just a few minutes I knew she was who I needed to represent me. Her professionalism, experience and dedication to her clients was very apparent from the beginning. My divorce was final just recently and I can easily say not one time through this process did I regret my decision to follow Roberta's lead. Among many other things Roberta is genuine, professional, experienced, dedicated, straight forward, smart and not will to back down. She is at the very top of my list for attorneys. I would highly recommend Roberta for any family law issues. Thank you Roberta and Ellie!!!
