    • I do not recommend Robert Beattie.
    • I hired Robert more than 3 years ago.
    • Robert handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Bob charged me $31,000 for a little over 2 months work. I lost my case in the worst way. Bob seemed to have given up on my case even before my trial where he could not even hold his own against a slimy attorney. He did not advise about my financial information, and then complained to me that I was not credible with the judge. Isn't that why I had an attorney? He gave me a "discount" on what I owed but it still was crazy expensive for the work done. Losing my case lost me most time with my children and half of my income. I later asked Bob for some clarification regarding my case and his answer was in order to get any assistance I would need to pay another retainer. Very rude, insensitive treatment after what I paid and been through. Bob is out if touch and ALL about the money. I am now representing myself and I can't do much worse.

    • I recommend Robert Beattie.
    • I hired Robert more than 3 years ago.
    • Robert handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    Bob handled my divorce and was terrific. Besides being really skilled and tough in court, he cared about me and my children. My friend had recommended him and she had a similar opinion of him
