I hired Bob on the recommendation of a family member of mine who had been previously represented by Bob. Bob was professional and down to earth in our dealings prior to court in person, by phone, and by email. He let me know what to expect through the process and gave an accurate projection of the likely court proceeding. Then, at our court appearance he changed. That was the day that I really met Bob. He became both intense and ruthless. There were a barrage of tough questions fired at my ex when Bob was questioning, and objections made when he wasn't. My ex's lawyer was both outmatched and outclassed. I am so glad Bob was on my side of the courtroom. The judge returned a judgment for parenting time that was what I had been hoping and praying for, and nowhere close to what my ex was asking. I can't begin to convey the gratitude that I feel for what Bob has done for my family. I would recommend him to anyone.

I had a highly contensious divorce, Bob was very honest about what to expect as things proceeded. He explained legal terms to me as one professional to another. I am so glad I had him by my side, literally and figuratively, during both days of trial. His court room tactics seemed to be a perfect mix of knowledge, skill and sense of humor. I can't thank you enough Bob.

In my initial consultation, Bob promised me the world. Once my retainer was paid and the process officially begun, he seemed entirely disinterested in my case. Before long, he was about to repeat actions that he had already taken until I pointed this out. I actually had to schedule a face-to-face because I think he was confusing me with another one of his clients by mistake. His communication was very poor at best. He even gave me misinformation about giving a tenant notice to leave in this process. If I had followed his advise, I wouldn't have given him the amount of time that he was legally entitled to. I found this out through my own research. Luckily for Bob (and his clients) his assistant, Julie, is fantastic. I generously gave him the benefit of the doubt for far longer than I should have. I was wrong to think that paying more would ensure a harder working, more keenly strategizing lawyer. Maybe my case wasn't glitzy enough for him? What a waste of money and time THATwas! My new lawyer charges quite a bit less and has done more in two weeks than he did in 4 months--and she communicates professionally, clearly, and frequently. She is actively working on my case and keeping me in the loop every step of the way. I would strongly encourage readers to look elsewhere. I wish I had known about these reviews when I was considering Bob in the first place. He seems like a nice enough guy, but I wasn't getting my money's worth. I was impressed by his years of experience, but that ended up translating into what seemed like carelessness. Relative to my new experience, I think Bob tries to get away with as little as possible.

Does not return phone calls in timely manor. Double bills !!! If your divorce is a simple one and all you need is paperwork filed this guy may be an ok choice. If you are involved in a battle and will be in court, not a good option. In the final entry of my proceedings he reported the settlement terms ambiguously, assured me it was ok and it was not! He filed a motion on my behalf we went to court where he then sat there and tried to convince me to drop it. I said I didn't want to he stated if it comes back up he'll file again for free which it did and he didn't. $1500 later I'm exactly where i started. I seriously advise you to keep looking. This guy will make all the promises and tough talk of a used car salesman, but doesn't back it up.
