I actually, found Josh on this site. I remember my first impression of him being WOW, what a compassionate guy. I say this because lets face facts, if youre out searching for a Divorce/Family Probate attorney, things probably aren't fabulous in your life at that moment. When I posed my question on the open forum, at 8pm, he responded quickly by saying "first and foremost let me say that I am so sorry you going through this", and it struck me. The following day, from a parking lot in my car on the phone, I hired Josh to represent me in what ended up being an absolute nightmare divorce/custody battle/criminal trial etc. And for the record, I am the MOTHER in this situation. Josh and I along with my family and a criminal attorney fought swiftly, methodically and basically around the clock in order to save my family. This is in no way an exaggeration, my ex spouse was attempting to take me young son away, out of pure desperation. Again, I am the MOTHER and the breadwinner. This man worked tirelessly, diligently, consulted when he needed to, and was by my side for 2+ years. He never gave up. He was and every day phone call for me, including nights and weekends, because the situation I was being dragged into required it. Every day some new legal issue showed itself due to my ex spouse, however, while they were unwarranted they were brought to the court, so we spent 2 years defending me from his ridiculous but very, very serious accusations. Josh, literally, worked night and day for 2+ years, and about 8 bankers boxes with court materials later....we WON. He WON for me. He is so well spoken, respectful of the judicial process, judges, yes plural, judges and even the most show boaters of the parade of attorney's he was forced to deal with. Every morning before we went into court, which honestly, was about 3 or 4 times per month, I sent him a picture of my son, and would tell him this is who we fight for....and he did, year after year, never giving up ever. I now have SOLE custody of my child, and am finally officially divorced after a 3 year period . But, I have SOLE custody of my child, and Josh saved my family. You will never meet a more loyal, ethical, well written and spoken person or attorney, than Josh Robbins. I know for a fact that my case kept him up plenty of nights, because it was THAT bad. Josh never left my side, believed in me and fought tirelessly on my behalf. You will absolutely be represented in the most thorough manner, by someone who is compassionate and tireless, that is just the best word to describe him, just tireless.

Joshua was great in assisting me with paperwork that I needed to get done before getting married. He kept in touch with me and was very responsive to all my emails and calls, which I greatly appreciated. He was very good at communicating with opposing counsel about following up with paperwork and was very very thorough with everything. Overall, I'm very pleased with the experience.

Josh did an awesome job in winning my case! With 2 days notice of a court hearing, he worked tirelessly, well into the evening hours to pull everything together. He was very knowledgeable, extremely responsive and cared about me. My case was unique in that I had to hire 3 different attorneys in 3 different states. Josh did a wonderful job of coordinating with the other attorneys to get what he needed. He is an amazing attorney, and I would highly recommend him in any family law matter! Thank you, Josh!

After a few years of being in and out of court for custodial issues I was starting to get discouraged with all of the legal representation on my end as well as the opposing party. I came across Mr. Robbins and gave his office a call. After a brief consultation with him I immediately felt like there was hope. Finally I found a lawyer who was willing to take the time to get to know my case on a more personal level. He listened to what I had to say and took into consideration what it was I was hoping to get out of the case rather than just tell me what I wanted to hear and then say something completely different once in the court room. I highly recommend working with Mr. Robbins and wish I found him four years ago when first starting my journey in court.

We found our downsizing home. A beautiful little 19th century cottage tucked into a cul-de-sac in a wonderful neighborhood. Everything was perfect... until we met our new frenemy Fannie Mae. We needed to get utility easements, ASAP. We needed a maintenance agreement for the cul-de-sac. We needed documentation on the oil a careless deliveryman had spilled in the basement years ago.
Through it all, Josh was indefatigable, very available, and helped us especially in key areas:
* Understanding our legal obligations and options.
* Keeping us well informed of the progress on the complex negotiations with the sellers and their neighbors (our neighbors, now).
* Most importantly, advocating for us in a way that accomplished our goals -- a clean title to the house with all the necessary easements and agreements -- in a style that focused on the common goal, so we, the sellers, and our new neighbors all came out feeling good about it.
And I forgot to mention that we were on a very tight timeline. Josh put his best effort into this deal, and we couldn't be happier with his services.

Josh Robbins helped with an estate planning issue that came up for my mom. A club that had gone bankrupt owed her money and Josh looked at the law and communicated with the new club to ensure that what they were doing was legal and that the eventual payout would go to either her of her heirs. Josh handled this expertly and thoroughly. He left no stone unturned and was amazing at keeping the ball rolling and keeping me informed. His follow through and responsiveness let me know that all of our interests were being fought for. He was willing to play hardball if necessary. In addition Josh is very personable and caring. He really cares about service and gets back to you promptly and professionally with accurate and helpful information.

I consider Joshua to be at the high-end of attorneys who practice family law. His knowledge of the Massachusetts standards and recent changes in divorce law led me to believe that I could count on him to deliver sound advice. Joshua was able to provide the business acumen that I was looking for when it came to arguing my case and playing through the different scenario outcomes. I appreciate his candid approach and would use him for future proceedings if necessary.

Mr. Robbins helped me navigate through a very complicated international divorce and custody case. I found him to be a very respectful, and brutally honest individual. I'll definitely recommend him...

Simply put: Josh is the best attorney I have ever encountered in the Family Court system in Massachusetts. He is hardworking, fair, honest, and a genuinely nice guy. If you're looking for a bulldog, someone who talks big and goes for blood, Josh is not your guy. Instead, Josh listens, thinks strategically and logically about the situation, and then acts, courteously, but diligently to make sure things keep moving forward.
Before I retained Josh, I wasted a lot of money on attorneys who seemed only interested in getting their next retainer. They geared everything towards hearings and court filings, and often seemed disinterested or unprepared to deal with anything outside of that structure. Josh, on the other hand, treats court as just one option of many, and has been incredibly helpful in coming up with alternative approaches that address the issues in more effective, and cost-effective, ways.
The measure of a good attorney is how he or she affects your quality of life. With Josh handling my case a huge weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. I'm still intimately involved in the details of my case, but I no longer have to worry about getting a return on my investment, or whether there will adequate follow-through. With Josh, I know my paperwork will be filed quickly and correctly; opposing counsel, parenting coordinators, etc. will be dealt with firmly, yet cooperatively; and that someone will be there at every step to make sure that the issues affecting my children and me are addressed satisfactorily.
