  • Hal G. Ostrow

    I've known Rob for several years and have litigated against him. He is the consummate professional - we were able to disagree without being disagreeable, and I always found him to be thoroughly prepared and knowledgable. Since then, I have referred cases to him and he has achieved excellent results. I highly recommend him.
