What I love about Bob is his knowledge and his ability to convey that knowledge to a lay person like me. Even when I couldn't quite articulate what I was trying to ask he anticipated what I was asking and gave a great answer. He called when he said he would. Did what he said he would etc. I have not had him in a court room setting but I am sure that he would represent me just as well in that environment.

I've consulted with Robert on various matters and he's always provided excellent input and guidance based on a level-head and deep experience - I recommend him most highly.

~HEY YOU~ ... ~sitting there ~ looking for an attorney ~ taking the time ~ to read reviews ~
...well here goes mine...
In 1996 Robert Helland represented my custody case and I HATED how he asked the judge for a guardian ad litem and some other extra junk for me to do! I felt like I was being set up for failure with all the hoops we had to jump through....but I tell ya, Robert Helland knows his stuff!
I realized that Bob has always had my best interests at heart, and that there's a good reason for all the legal steps we took. Judges like attorneys that get right to the LAW and no pussy footing around. I have hired Bob (and won) my Custody, Separation, Divorce, DUI, and will hire him in the future as needed. I call Bob for every little question and he (or his amazing staff) is able to address my concerns.
Bob has even referred me to a different attorney, and I appreciate that Bob knows his limitations, looks past any financial pride and directs me to success. I recommended Robert Helland to Everyone. Aggressive, Down to earth, and Knowledgeable Attorney. I hope my review helps you, as much as Robert Helland has helped me!

Bob has assisted me in numerous cases. He has always displayed very zealous advocacy. His knowledge of the law and courthouse procedures is fantastic. I would recommend him to all.

Robert Helland has been my personal attorney for over 20 years. He has represented me in a personal injury accident, child custody matters and most recently has helped me with the task of creating a Medical Directive and Will. Mr. Helland has also provided information to any questions I have had throughout the years and his office staff is always more than helpful. Mr. Helland is one of the few attorneys I have hired that really cares about his clients. I highly recommend him and his staff.

Bob is excellent!! He cared, he let me know what could happen. I would highly reccomend him to anyone. He and his staff helped me through a complicated custody battle and he did an excellent job. My husband also used him as well. He was upfront and on top of things. I couldn't ask for better. My lawyer before was not even half as competent as his office. AWSOME office staff as well. Love bob!!!

Mr. Helland did not present nor bother to gather and subpeona the evidence he was given. He didn't even submit it to court. He also did not have witnesses testify, and the 2 out of several that he did, he didn't even ask them questions that pointed out evidence and eye witnessing of events and behaviors. He only asked them a few questions. He kept stating to us, "It's in the bag, the burden is on them", and each time I kept asking to gather the proof of lies and perjury being committed his comments were, "they are accusing you of being a control freak", so he wouldn't submit any subpeona's to show proof. Well, I have been raising my kids and had primary care of them and been totally involved in their lives for 12 years and because of this man, I lost them. All because I had to file a contempt motion to bring the kids back home because their mom had absconded them and would not return them from out of state and they missed the first month of school. Also, the GAL never once spoke to me or met me and the girls. Yet kept asking for more time and money, which I she received, yet never investigated the children's Dr's, Dentist's, Teachers, neighbors, friends, etc... And the mother has a history with police reports and CPS reports of abuse and anger and drugs use. And she never completed her court ordered drug testing. Me nothing. Something is very wrong to have my kids taken away after 12 years because of just hearsay that I am a controlling person, when its her and I have proof.

Bob is a great family law attorney. I have an ex-husband from hell that cannot understand normal thinking. Bob has been key in helping me manage my ex-husband and the chaos that he creates. Bob has provided me with unbiased opinions, solid advice and expert representation that only a seasoned attorney can offer. I appreciate Bob and everything that he has done for me. My ex-husband refers Bob regularly to his friends seeking a divorce, a true testament to Bob's abilities as an attorney.

Slaughtered my case, asked for extensions, over charged me, forgot to file, my paper work, did not go in my approach and messed me up even more!
