Knowledgeable, realistic and more than helpful...
Robert Waickowski is a very professional attorney who can be trusted to be responsive and supportive in times of need. His communication skills and accessibility make him the ideal counselor. He has helped me set realistic goals and performed well when needed. I recommend him as a "class act" and will continue to trust his guidance in the future.

CASE DISMISSED!!!
Attorney Rob took my case back in May of 2016, he was extremely professional and attentive. He listened to my side of the story after reading the police report and ASSURED me he would get the case thrown out. I was nervous because I was looking at felony charges. Every time I reached out to him via text, email or call he got right back to me within a couple hours if not immediately. I write this review today after he got the case dismissed, 8 months later, not because of him, but because the court kept dragging their feet. He told them enough was enough and got it done. I would strongly recommend hiring him if you get yourself in a jam. Nantucket is such a small little community you need a local attorney who knows how things work there. Thanks again Attorney Rob

A lawyer you'll look forward to hearing from
Considered all the documents I had gathered regarding a lease agreement contract dispute carefully and gave solid advice in a courteous and concise manner, explained things thoroughly and professionally and was extremely kind with his time and advice.

Great Lawyer
Robert was friendly and willing to help on short notice when I needed representation for a serious charge. We were able to get the charge reduced and later sealed. Robert's positive attitude and assistance were a big asset for me when going through the long legal process
