I had a difficult time accepting my divorce about 13 years ago and I was no doubt a very confused client. Yet he was there for me the whole time. I stopped using him when I asked to contest my divorce, and he would not do it telling me you cannot contest a no-fault divorce in the state of California, and I was not ready to accept that, and I ended up with a much worse attorney and then finally a very good one. Had I stayed with Bob, I would have been much better off.
Bob was very compassionate, patient, yet assertive, highly knowledgeable, and experienced. He and another attorney, Vickie Norwich probably unknowingly inspired me to start thinking about law school here in Fresno. I haven't decided whether to pursue it, but my wife and I know we at least want to study law for the benefit of being knowledgeable in it.

I initially contracted with Attorney Robert Borris via my insurance program about 10 years ago. Then his work was sloppy and often late. However, as he had background on my issues so I continued to contract with him and his sloppy work got even worse. He is a "glad hander" Will spend more time getting to know you and discuss your interests in lieu of doing effective legal work. The latest was a simple case that should have been negotiated but he managed to get it into the court system. Then when he found out I had more disposal financial resources his estimate jumped from $1,500 to $20,000. He also guaranteed an hourly fee of $225 per hour but billed me for $300. Per hour. He was so unresponsive I ended up having to make contact with the attorney who represented the other person involved. I initially paid him $1,500 retainer and later another $1,500. Because he did not return phone calls, emails, letters I cancelled his “services” and demanded a return of the second $1,500. He has refused to return the funds and now I have to contract with a capable attorney to continue my case. This is particularly difficult as am in very poor health and in and out of hospitals on a regular basis. There is more and I can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
Your Desired Resolution:
Return my latest retainer of $1,500 as no work was performed and I canceled his services

My husband and I hired Bob Borris to handle our bankruptcy. It was a horrible time in our life financially, and he was kind, available, listened, explained everything clearly and fully to us, answered all of our questions (even when we forgot and called later with a question) and eased our minds considerably. About 7 years or so later, my husband died suddenly, and I went back to Bob Borris to make my will, and other issues with my late husband's estate. Bob barely charged me at all, and could not have been more kind and compassionate. A great guy!
