    I endorse this lawyer. Bob advised me on a real estate and also a business contract matter and was exemplary as an attorney in every way - knowledgeable, responsive, professional, personable, and communicative. I have had complete confidence in his capability and without hesitation would go back to him for future matters. His colleague Vicki assisted in making all matters go forward seamlessly.
