I would highly recommend using Robert for your attorney. He is very professional in his work ethic and he helped me with my tough situation. I am so happy that a friend referred me to him. Thank you again Robert!!!!
Bob Oleisky is honest, and straight forward. He has been very helpful with my case and takes the time necessary to cover any questions I have. I would refer him to any client needing representation in Hennepin County. He has experience and connections that have helped tremendously.
I recently had a legal issue that I 1) was not guilty of and 2) thought I would have no chance of getting it kept off my record. I was hesitant and considering just pleading guilty to the charges. I took a moment to think and sought the advise from friends and family, of what to do. They said I should fight the charges that I should find a quality attorney and fight for your rights.
There were so many choices on which attorney to use, so I asked a family member who works with attorneys and judges, who she would use if she got into trouble. Before I could finish the question. She had a name for me. Robert Oleisky. She has seen him multiple times in court, seen how courteous, respectful, and how prosecutors and other attorneys held such a high regard for him.
After I heard what she said I proceeded to call him and set up an appointment. I had a court date already set and after talking with him and a few other attorneys, I just saw something in Mr. Oleisky that made me feel that he would be by far the best attorney to look out for my best interests and defend me, so I decided to retain the services of Mr. Oleisky.
To my absolute surprise, and delight, I soon received a call then an email that I would not only not have to go to court, and need to take valuable time off from work, and able to get the charges dismissed.
His immediate response to my needs, His courteous behavior, His respectful demeanor, and his ability to litigate my case to a successful completion, without the need to go to trial, inspired me to tell others of how good of a Attorney Mr. Oleisky is.
If I ever had need for an Attorney again, or have any friends, family, or relatives, who need the services of an Attorney, I would not hesitate at all in referring Robert Oleisky as an attorney.
I have hired Robert Oleisky several times. He has been a great asset in my defense. His knowledge and honesty were very important to me. My legal rights were always explained to me, my best interests were taken to heart and I was represented with professionalism. Overall, a great lawyer!
I don't believe that Bob Oleisky did his best by me. In fact, I think he honed in on what the prosecutor would easily agree to early in the process and didn't push for anything more. Throughout the time I was working with Mr. Oleisky I often wondered if he was more interested in the prosecutor's agenda. . .or mine. The outcome was disappointing.
Further, Mr. Oleisky threatened me twice, once when I needed clarification on how my case would move through the court system he became impatient and threatened to declare I was mentally deficient, unable to understand the process and in need of some sort of psychological support or intervention (absurd). In addition, a complication came up late in my case and instead of addressing it head on he relayed to me what the prosecutor felt was the appropriate punishment and told me to accept it or find another lawyer.
I never felt that Mr. Oleisky was being 100% honest with me although I acknowledge that this is somewhat speculative on my part.
I have to live with a disappointing outcome. I would not hire Mr. Oleisky for anything other than a DUI (which seems to be the lion's share of his work).
