From beginning to end my experience working with Mr. Stempler was excellent; he was incredibly quick, responsive, and in my opinion, provided completely value-added service at a very fair price. Not only do I give Mr. Stempler my highest recommendation, I would not hesitate to contact him again in the event of future legal needs.

I have been pleased with every aspect of Robert's work on my behalf.
I sought his help because of these excellent reviews and I have been
glad ever since. He is on my short list of best referrals. Many Thanks!

Oddly enough, I found Mr. Stempler through Avvo, and after a few free consultation-type e-mails put my trust in him to represent me in a wage garnishment/debt settlement case. I was very satisfied with Mr. Stempler's service as he was able to assist in settling and securing a satisfaction of judgment on my matter. Throughout the case, I communicated primarily via e-mail with Mr. Stempler. He is very responsive to e-mails, and I had no trouble communicating with him this way. Any e-mail I sent received a response within 24 hrs, and more often than not a response was received within a few hours. Mr. Stempler is very honest about what he can and cannot do, and was always very clear and straightforward on the scope of work he would perform. He did give guidance and would make recommedations, but at the end fo the day the decision on what direction I would take on my matter was always mine. And regardless of the direction chosen, Mr. Stempler was willing to accomodate however possible.
More importantly, once my matter was resolved, Mr. Stempler followed through to make sure all the i's were dotted and t's crossed in my case. Oppossing counsel was not always the most responsive, but Mr. Stempler made sure to follow up and see my case to its full completion...keeping me updated, and documenting the process along the way.
Not knowing where to go for assistance, and having come across Avvo.com for the first time (a website I stumbled onto online), I consider myself very lucky to have been able to find the services of Mr. Stempler. I would definitely recommend Mr. Stempler to anyone needing debt relief assistance. His fees for an attorney are reasonable, and there were no hidden costs/fees. I never felt as if my case was abandoned or became less important for Mr. Stempler throughout his representation. As indicated in the title of my review, I found Mr. Stempler to be very professional, responsive, honest, reasonable and fair....five words I do not always easily associate with an attorney.
I am happy to finally have this matter resolved and behind me, and thank you again Mr. Stempler for your assistance in its resolution.

I recently found myself the defendant in a legal matter. To see my name on court documents was anxiety provoking, to say the least...
A number of good friends are attorneys, but none had experience with this type of law. Thus, I turned to Avvo to find someone experienced with debt collection matters. After speaking with a couple of attorneys, I decided I wanted Mr. Stempler to represent me.
In addition to getting the case against me dismissed, Mr. Stempler was a wealth of information regarding all areas of debt collection, credit, and consumer protection. His website is also a wonderful resource and he maintains an active presence on Twitter. Typically I am a worrier, and I want to research any and every topic so that I feel more in control of a situation. However, because Mr. Stempler was available to answer questions (not so with all attorneys) and was always sure to keep me informed of the progress on my case, I found myself at ease in this situation.
Honestly, he was pretty much everything you'd want in an attorney!

Having never been sued or even experienced legal issues in our life, we were scared and uncertain how to resolve the situation we had created. We found the reviews for Robert online at this site and decided to give him a chance. He truly was a God send! Besides reducing our debt by 75% (which is not something we expected!), his obvious knowledge, experience, and no-nonsense manner in presenting all the facts and options allowed us to relax and feel certain that Robert was going take control of the situation. The outcome of our case was so much better than we could ever have imagined! Though we don’t ever plan on going through this again, we would recommend Robert without reservation! Thank you!

Robert took time to review my situation and offer advice. I screwed up and he helped without making me feel like an idiot. I truly appreciated the professional advice.
Posted by Jeff, a Bankruptcy client, Flag
This guy was awesome!
I did a phone consultation and he answered many questions and gave me a good path to follow.
The only reason I marked him as 3 is responsiveness....he is busy.
I would suppose that is because he is good at what he does.
Posted by Gilbert, Flag
Through my own searching, I came across Robert's profile and gave a shot to submit an eCase review at his website. In few minutes, Robert personally responded and provided a professional advise via email and quite a few phone conversations. He appeared to be not only diligent and accommodating but likewise demonstrated a high level of proficiency with the services he provides.
I could sense that he have been providing quality service with his clients. I am confident he is a great fit to meet my personal requirements and would hire his services should the need arises.

I have never written a review before this. Mr. Stempler did such an excellent job with my 2 cases, I wanted to write a review. When I saw his review from previous clients...I thought it was alittle far fetch like mine is gonna sound but it turns out to be true. I had 2 credit card debt cases totaling $90,000; I spoke to 2 other attorneys about bankruptcy...but I saw Mr. Stempler online ad so I called him too. I hired Mr. Stempler for both cases totaling $90,000... Mr. Stempler was able to settle them for $6,500. So this review is a thankyou to Mr. Stempler for an Amazing job.

I was panicked and had no clue about what it meant to be sued or even what my first step was to rectify the situation. Robert not only explained to me the process of being sued, but how he'd assess and correct the situation. Not only did he explained everything to me, he kept me up-to-date with everything involving the case including payments and responses from the company suing me, and most importantly, he helped me stop feeling so overwhelmed and stressed with the situation. It was a huge relief to have him say that he'd take care of the whole legal situation and there was no need to panic anymore. I highly recommend Robert Stempler and will definitely use his services again (God forbid I ever encounter another legal situation like this again!).

Im not a true client but he provided the most detailed response to my question on this website. He seems truly passionate, resourceful and compassionate in offering his assistance. In my eyes... Mr. Stempler is a exceptional lawyer.
Keep up the good work and thank you once again! I can't thank you enough for all the resources you provided. Thank YOU.

Very pleased with the Robert's overall performance. He kept me constantly updated throughout the entire process including responding to emails on the weekends. He is very versed and well respected in what he does and provides what I believe to be thorough and accurate legal advice in an easy to understand manner. He consistently guided me in making the best decision's possible regarding my case. I could not be happier with the outcome. I will also say that he never over promised and under delivered as I have experienced with attorney's in the past. He did exactly what he said he would do and when he would do it. I highly recommend him for any consumer law issues.

I contacted Mr. Stempler for initial consultation. Mr. Stempler responded promptly and took the time to listen to me and explain my options. Mr. Stempler's willingness to suggest solutions that might not result in retaining his service showed me that he has my best interest at heart. I appreciated greatly his time and resourcefulness and believe him to be very trustworthy and knowledgeable.

Mr. Stempler was referred to me by another attorney and I am so thankful he did. He helped me get a debt collection lawsuit settled. The original lawsuit was for $5600. Mr. Stempler settled the lawsuit for a total of $1440 with very affordable $40 payments. I was able to pay the balance off in a shorter time, so I emailed him and the same day he got me a letter from the debt collection law firm confirming that the settlement was paid in full, stating they were dismissing the case with the court and deleting any derogatory information from my credit report. During the process he was very attentive with any new information, he kept me informed with any new development and any time I had a question he answered the very same day. Mr. Stempler is extremely professional and very affordable. Grade A attorney.

Mr. Stempler was able to take care of my case in a very short time. I am very pleased with the level of service he has provided me with. He is very affordable and was able to work out a payment arrangement which helped out a lot too. If you are in a similar situation, I'm sure that Mr. Stempler can take care of you as he did me and a number of other clients. Thank you again Mr. Stempler!!

About a year ago, I was looking into refinancing my house. I pulled my Credit Report and noticed that there was a lien against my property and a default judgment against me. I had no idea of this and was a little put off that all of this had happened without my knowledge. Doing some research online, I was ready to battle it out myself. Then I came across Mr. Stempler. I talked with him and decided that it would be better to let a professional handle this matter, rather than me taking it on alone. This was the BEST decision I have ever made. Mr. Stempler had the case dismissed and the Default Judgment removed. Mr. Stempler is the attorney you want to speak with if you are ever faced with these types of situations.

My father was being sued from a debt collector for over $20,000, of course my father was in a panic mode! I contacted Robert with one day till the case was to go to court, he was so quick and responded immediately to my inquiries. At times I was so busy with work and slow with responding back to him, he was patient and earnestly worked hard on my father's case. He was able to get the whole case dismissed!!! Incredible! He is absolutely great!!!
If any one finds themselves in a despondent situation regarding debt collectors, absolutely stand up and fight ,and definitely have someone like Robert to do it for you. My father is able to have a peaceful night of sleep and his credit score has improved greatly!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH ROBERT!!!

Mr. Stempler is a great attorney to work with. He assisted me in a credit matter. He is prompt, responsive, and has great attention to detail. He is easy to work with and his fees are very reasonable. He handled my legal matter to 100 percent of my satisfaction and I highly recommend him.

I must admit that I've never worked with an attorney before as I have a debilitating phobia of courts and confrontations. When I had discovered I had been wrongly served and my wages were to be garnished I had an emotional meltdown. I am a single mother of two small children and I am on my own. The chilling thought that a large firm's dishonesty led to a tampering of my modest family's income was a critical moment for us. By a stroke of luck I found Robert Stempler. He, in record time, had the default judgement against me vacated, the wage garnishment stopped and the whole case dismissed. He was extremely professional, confident and knowledgeable. Although I didn't know step 1 about what was happening to me he made me feel safe in his hands. I highly recommend Mr. Stempler. His integrity, honor and hard work have given me a deep sense of gratitude and respect in working with him.

I hired him a few years ago for one collection lawsuit and he managed to get the entire frivolous lawsuit dismissed where I owed NOTHING. He is diligent, hardworking, extremely knowledgable and compassionate towards his clients. He goes the extra mile to resolve all concerns and understands client's needs. Robert is honest and fair. Clients' struggling with debt collection lawsuits will find him extremely experienced and helpful in eliminating the stress and apprehension of being sued. 5-STAR rating....

Mr.Stempler was recommended to me from another lawyer in the same field of law. I'm sure glad I took that recommendation, he is professional in every aspect. He knew I was in a hurry to remove this judgment and settle this debt as quick as we could. He worked long hours emailing me at night and even on the weekends, letting me know any progress. He didn't beat around the bush, he got straight to the point and clearly explained your rights, and your options. He was able to get judgment removed, and a reduced settlement in a short time. I could not have done it with out him, I would recommend him to anybody with consumer law issues.

I met Mr Stempler directly from this site, at the current time I was being sued by 3 credit card companies. Mr Stempler and I worked together for over a year on all 3 cases. He even got one of my cases completely and his services offered are very affordable. I HIGHLY recommend the services of Mr Stempler.

After being sued I didn't know what to do. I asked a friend who works at a top lawyer referral firm. He referred me to a bk attorney who he felt could negotiate with my creditor. This top attorney couldn't get the creditor to budge at all. So I searched the internet for a consumer advocate attorney in credit matters. Robert's name came up. Since I'm from NYC also, I felt comfortable that we'd get along. We did. Robert impressed me not only with his business acumen, but with his ability to explain all the details of the case. Since I had not filed an answer for my corporate entity, the creditor was given a default judgement. I was so depressed. Robert said just wait, let me see what I can do. He got the judgement overturned. But the case was still going to trial. And just three weeks before trial, Robert was able to persuade the creditor to dismiss the case voluntarily. I heartily recommend Robert to anyone who has a credit problem, large or small. His fee is very fair, and he was willing to take payments over several months. How many attorneys would be that sensitive to your money cash flow. Robert if you read these reviews, thank you very much!

I was having an issue on how to handle a collection agency that was trying to collect on an old debt. I reached out to Mr. Stempler because I liked the answer he gave me on my post here on Avvo. I even look up his website and read other post he's written, he seemed very knowledgeable and helpful. When I called him, he asked if he could call me back and I gave him my number, and hung up. Thinking that he wasn't going to call me back, he called me the next day. I was surprised how he was so personable and we even talked about dogs :) Then we started getting into the issue I was having with this debt collector, he was very thorough and helpful on what I should do, didn't need to worry about and what could happen. He let me ask him every scenario I could think of and he didn't even hesitate to rush me off the phone. After we discussed my case, it came to the conclusion that I didn't need an attorney at this moment. I asked if I did need one in the future about this matter if he could represent me, even being from another city, he said yes. If that time comes, Mr. Stempler is the person I am going to turn too. I appreciate the time and the advice he gave me. Just our conversation over my case, took the stress away that I've been dealing with for months! In the meantime, I will refer him to anyone that would need his assistance! Thank you again Mr. Stempler!

Mr. Stempler is GREAT!
On December 21st 2010 at 8:00pm I was literally decorating my Christmas tree, when there was a pounding on my front door, I thought it was on of my neighbors in distress (I live in a very isolated area). When I opened the door it was a Process Server, I was served papers for a lawsuit. This immediately put my Holidays into a stressed out, panic driven,
â€˜State of Mindâ€™.
I found Mr. Stemplerâ€™s website and read his advise on dealing with credit card lawsuits.
I contacted the law firm in San Francisco and tried to negotiate with them. I was put into a bad loan for my house and was part of the 2007 banking mess/recession. At that time,
I had to let my credit cards go, in order to keep my house. In contacting the law firm that was suing me I was more than happy and in good faith wanted to negotiate and pay off my credit card debt. The $4,000.00 I owed became $8,000.00 with interest accruing daily. They would not arrange a payment plan and would not accept less that the $8,000.00 dollars. Every time I spoke with the secretary she would threaten me with, â€œYou donâ€™t want a judgment against you, do you?â€ or â€œDo you want a LIEN placed against your house?â€ After several phone calls and bigger and more intimidating threats, something â€œclickedâ€ and I was, DONE!
I called Mr. Stempler, he immediately returned my call, (mind you this is over the Holidays)-listened to my story- and took on my case. I am a school teacher and canâ€™t talk on the phone during the day. Mr. Stempler worked independently and contacted me through e-mail only when he needed something or with news about the case. I was able to return to work in January with some peace of mind, knowing Mr. Stempler was taking the appropriate legal actions with this case.
In May Mr. Stempler sent me an e-mail with a link to the courts, showing that the lawsuit had been WITHDRAWN. No Judgment, no attached wages, no lien, no bankruptcy!
Not too sure what Mr. Stempler did, Iâ€™m sure it was legal. I do know I am tremendously relieved!
Mr. Stempler is truly a Consumer Advocate, did an excellent job, and a man of his word.

I retained Robert Stempler after having no success dealing with a lawsuit brought by a credit card company where the collection lawyer committed perjury and fraud by claiming to have served me, which never happened. This lawsuit was filed in early 2010 and remained on the docket for 13 months. I had hired another law firm to help me with this suit and some other debts I was attempting to settle. I paid them a huge sum of money and got nothing in return, including them doing nothing with this lawsuit. I contacted 4 other "well known" consumer law firms in an attempt to get his matter resolved. None of the 4 wanted anything to do with it, so I contacted Robert Stempler. He talked with me for quite awhile on the phone, explained everything to me, and said that he believed he could get the case dismissed (something 5 other law firms never considered). I agreed to his fee, which was more than reasonable, and he filed a response to the lawsuit on my behalf the same day, without ever receiving a dime from me in advance. Within 11 days, the credit card company had dropped their complaint and requested dismissal of the lawsuit. Four days after the credit card company requested dismissal, the court dismissed the lawsuit. I was completely amazed that Robert Stempler had accomplished in 13 days what another law firm failed to accomplish in over a year, and which 4 other firms wanted no part of. It was totally cool! I was very impressed by the fact that Mr. Stempler was interested in justice for the consumer, and not just in making a lot of money. I would highly recommend Mr. Stempler to anyone dealing with a collection agency or credit card company. He is very professional and responded immediately to my problem.

I am so thankful to have found Mr. Robert Stempler. I had co- signed for my ex's car and it went bad. They were suing me for over $13,000 and I was fighting the lawsuit for over four years. I reached out to many lawyers to help me with my case and mostly all turned me away stating there was nothing they could do or they were going to charge me a ridiculous amount that would not be feasible for me to afford.
After almost giving up, less than three months ago, I asked a question on Avvo and Mr.Stempler answered. I reached out to him and told him of my case.
Now my car lawsuit case is dismissed and the car company will fix my credit!! I am still so amazed of how Mr. Stempler was able to do this and am so thankful!
My only regret is not finding him four years ago! But better late than never and everything happens for a reason. Thank you so much Mr. Stempler! I have a great lesson to teach my future kids- Go to you! ;)

I contacted Robert after being sued by a collection agency and their attorney over an old debt that was sold several times. My family and I were very stressed out after learning about this lawsuit. The debt had become several thousands $$ more after interest and legal fees assessed by the collection agency. I attempted several times to settle this debt by offering a large sum and /or payments but the attorney was unwilling to discuss any settlements offers and their payment request was very unreasonable.
I was able to reach Rober Stempler on my very first attempt to contact him. I read some of his articles and posts on this website and hoped to get some good advice from him. He spent several minutes discussing my case and giving me advice on how to tackle this problem without ever mentioning fees or expenses, or asking for money before talking to me. I was immeditely impressed by not only his knowledge of the law in the consumer field, but also by his familiarity of the collection agencies and their attorney.
Robert is very prompt, and professional. He has returned my calls and e-mails everytime in a very timely matter. Above all his experience and professionalism is what convinced me to immeditely ask for his help in representing me.
We are now less than 6 weeks removed from my first phone call to Robert, and I just learned that my case was dismissed. I can't describe how great it feels to get some good news. Robert contacted me over the weekend to deliver the news. I can't tell you how delighted I am that I made that first call to Robert. I am not big on referring businesses or people but I will refer Robert to my friends and family because I know first hand what Robert can do. Thank you

I found Robert through Avvo, and called him to ask for advice regarding a credit card collection suit for an old debt I was unable to make payments on. I was not at all sure I was going to respond to the suit - but just wanted to know my options. He provided an extremely lengthy and thorough free consultation, not pushing me at all to hire him or fight the suit, but just patiently giving me all the information, even though some of it might have convinced me I didn't need to fight it (there was a chance I was judgment-proof). I was very impressed with the time he spent, and his willingness to take the time to answer all of my many, exhaustive questions, with no guarantee that he'd ever receive any compensation from me.
Ultimately, my research on other websites combined with his prediction led me to believe there was a good chance the creditor would drop the suit if I engaged an attorney to respond to it at all - that these matters often get dropped without the debtor ever having to do anything more than that.
That's exactly what happened. For a very reasonable rate (I shopped around), Robert took over the matter, filed the appropriate paperwork in a timely manner, and kept me regularly informed with what was happening. Sure enough, the collection agency dismissed the suit, and I was never asked to do anything else.
It was SO well worth it to prevent the possibility of a judgment being entered against me, and I am so happy I hired him! HIghly recommended.

I called Mr. Stempler after I found out I was sued by a company that neglected to disclose the name of the original creditor even after I specifically requested it. He took action right away and began the process of filing a response and drafting a counter suit. He was very quick to answer any email or phone call, and he alway took the time to answer my questions to my satisfaction. I never once felt uninformed or ignored. In the end, Mr Stempler got me a settlement that stopped any future collection on the debt, paid all his fees, and put a nice sum of money in my bank account. Mr. Stempler is an excellent consumer attorney who ready to fight for his clients, and I would highly recommend him to anyone who finds themselves being threatened and their consumer rights violated by an overzealous, if not outright corrupt, collection agency.

Mr. Stempler is the very best there is.
I was stressed out because I discovered that I had been sued (and lost) without my knowledge. To make matters worse, I had a wage garnishment that was in the process of going into effect. I have an incredibly busy schedule with my work and was overwhelmed at the prospect of dealing with this issue. Several attorneys turned me down before I was referred to Mr. Stempler.
I haven't stopped thanking God for being turned away by the other attorneys and being fortunate enough to have found Robert Stempler. Within days of filing our motion to vacate the judgment, the plaintiffs dismissed my case and "rushed" the wage garnishment termination orders.
Mr. Stempler kept me "off the ledge"; he kept me focused; he stayed in touch; he was thorough, knowledgeable and always, always to the point.
This guy is a rock star in his field of expertise and I will recommend him over and over again to those who find themselves in situations such as mine. I can't say enough about how incredible my experience with Mr. Stempler has been in what felt so dismal to me at the outset.

I had been sued without my knowledge in a consumer case, and Mr. Stempler litigated on my behalf, resulting in a full dismissal of the lawsuit. Prior to his representation, I had another attorney, and the case was not going well, and I may have ended up very compromised. I researched and retained Mr. Stempler, and he was very up front with me, spoke with me for a consultation, and gave me an honest evaluation of what might happen in my case. I chose to change attorneys to Mr. Stempler, with the best result. Mr. Stempler kept in touch with me regarding my case every step of the way. My experience was that Mr. Stempler really knows the law, and I would highly recommend him. If ever I am in an unfortunate circumstance again, I would seek him for counsel again

I had a credit card company claim that I had not paid a credit card debt of $7000, which in fact I had paid. When I refused to pay them any more money, they sold the debt to a collection agency. Eventually, I was sued. I contacted Robert Stempler 2 years after the collections had started and after I had already been sued. He was very courteous during the consult and seemed very knowledgeable about the debt collection field, so I agreed to retain his services. His fees were extremely reasonable, and I was more than satisfied with the level of attentiveness that he gave to my case. Throughout the entire process he kept me informed through not only email and faxes, but took the time to initiate phone conversations as well. He also was brutally honest in his assessment of which direction I should take my case as each decision point was reached, never trying to sugarcoat any option.
In the end, Mr Stempler not only had the debt collection suit against me dismissed, but he also filed a counter suit against the original lender to recover extra payments I had made as well as most of what I had spent for his fee.
I would have to say that the one thing that I will always remember Mr. Stempler for is that when the bank wanted a non-disclosure agreement as part of the settlement and I was contemplating accepting just to get it over with, Mr. Stempler took the time to explain exactly what rights I would be giving up and that he was confident we could win by sticking to our original offer. I hesitantly took his advice, but he was 100% correct. We settled for what we asked, without the onerous agreement the bank wanted within a week.
I would unequivocally recommend Robert Stempler to any of my friends or associates seeking legal advice for any debt collection issues. His devotion to his clients, knowledge of the field, and all around dedication to the practice of law is a great reflection of what the legal profession should be.

A credit card company won a settletment against me that I never knew they filed. They had lied about having served me and the judment was granted. I had contacted other lawyer's but the only response I received from them was "pay them." I was put in contact with Mr. Stempler and he gave me hope in that he was sure he could get this ruling over turned. He was able to get the judgment dismissed and the case closed. He kept me up to date with everything that was happening throughout the case. I am very greatful for the work he had done for.

Robert Stempler, Esq. I had a difficult situation with a creditor and I
sought advise from Mr. Stempler. Mr. Stempler was very nice, attentive

forward with the creditor. He negotiated a very agreeable settlement
and payment plan. I have called upon Mr. Stempler for advise on other
issues. He has always been prompt in answering my questions and has
always been very helpful. I found Mr. Stempler to be very knowledgeable
in his field. I would use Mr. Stempler's services again and highly

I cannot thank Robert enough for getting me out of my personal credit hell. I had a collection of $11,000 sitting on my record for a $5000 debt. I had wages garnished, I had a previous attorney never even show up to court! I was about to lose my mind! We settled for pennies on the dollar and my nightmare is now over. My credit is now over 700 (it was ~600 previously) and I finally am starting to get credit increases, and I no longer look like some second class citizen on my credit reports.
