My wife hired a big name very expensive attorney. Mr. Manson ran circles around her in Court. I ended up with an excellent result. I am a sheriff's deputy and have performed duties as a bailiff so I see many attorneys in court. I have not seen any attorneys better than Mr. Manson and often find myself saying to myself that Mr. Manson would have done much better. I have referred several people to Mr. Manson and all of them have been more than satisfied and told me that he is an excellent attorney. I highly recommend that you use him. His knowledge is great and his ability to strategize and analyze and set up a case are unmatched.

We needed an attorney to assist us with a debt dispute we were having with our timeshare company. After numerous attempts to resolve this on our own and exhausting our resources, we turned to Mr. Manson who was recommended by our family. After a thorough consultation, we retained his services. Bob went right to work for us immediately. He kept us informed on every aspect of our case. This included numerous back and forth conversations regarding negotiations and settlement to resolve our debt dispute. As frustrated as we were trying to resolve this on our own, once we retained Bob, this process seemed to move along seamlessly. We cannot thank Bob enough for everything he did for us resolving this matter so quickly. We can now put this nightmare behind us and move on with our lives. We would strongly recommend Robert Manson and will not hesitate to retain his services in the future.

Any review you read on this site which says that Bob promised them anything is totally false. As a matter of fact he specifically told us he wouldn't promise us anything. He met with us in a timely manner and was able to get us the expedited hearing we needed. He went above and beyond to get the court the items we needed in time for our date.

I raised a child as my own for five years and then found out that it was not mine. I did not care and even though the mom tried to cut me out, Mr. Manson was able to get me my rights. I talked to a few lawyers, but picked Mr. Manson since he had been a lawyer for a long time and just seemed to understand just what I was going through. He was unbelievable in court and really knew waht was going on.

I had a very difficult case and my first lawyer had totally messed up an order for protection matter. Mr. Manson stepped in after I was on supervised visits with my children and turned it around. I ended up with custody of my children. He made all the right decisions at the right time. I followed his advice and ended up not having to pay alimony after 22 years of marriage with a wife that did not work. My ex was unbelievably bad, but had the county on her side, but I had Mr. Manson and he won.

Mr. Manson clearly told me what to expect and guided me through a difficult case. I was able to get custody of my son. As a father, I was surprised, but Mr. Manson was ready at every turn and really great in court.

Promised everything, received nothing. Acted like a real tough guy, but delivered nothing and settled in the end. We got nothing out of this and were drug through the system while continously racking up the bill.

Robert guided us through the custody process in a straight forward manner and got us every thing that we asked for. He has a very easygoing appearance at first - but is a pit bull when it goes to court. He is the best guy to have on your side in the courtroom.

Bob is a no nonsense family law atty. He is respected in the courtroom by both the judge and opposing counsel. My ex-wife tried everything she could to create problems through my divorce. Bob knew exactly how to handle each situation, which ones to address and which ones to ignore and in all cases he knew how to win in court. I literally won EVERY challenge that came before the judge because of how Bob was able to work on his feet. She went through three attorneys and Bob made a mockery of all three of them in the courtroom. He never advised me to fight a battle that would simply drive up my bill and on many occasions he said "I'll fight this out for you but it won't matter in the end and will cost you a lot of money". When going through a messy divorce it can be hard to make those kinds of decisions on your own and a lawyer who focuses only on money can easily lead you into a fortune in legal bills. If you are looking to make trouble in the courtroom or are looking to try to get something that is unattainable Bob is not your guy. If you are looking for an attorney who has all of the skills you need to win what matters and has the connections to the right evaluators and experts Bob is absolutely the one. He has since handled many business and personal matters for me as well.

Did not respond to me, Left me waiting in his office for hours, did not present informaation needed to courts, did not return messages I placed I would not use him again

He gets the job done at a very fair price. You don't pay for
fluff, only what you need. I was kept informed and things
were taken care of in a timely manner. He makes the high
dollar guys look stupid. Would use him again, but hope I
never have to.
