Help on a crash
D. Robin Gouveia was such a tremendous help when I was hit from behind a few years ago. She helped answer every question I had, took me as a client and helped me with everything I needed to and put my worries at ease. Anyone would be lucky to have her !

Very Helpful
I went to d'Oliveira & Associates after my injury in an auto accident. Robin was so helpful to me. She answered every question and concern that I had. Her advice made what could have been a very stressful time much easier for me. If need be, I would hire Robin again in the future and I’d recommend her if you’ve been in accident and need solid law advice. Thank you!

Attorney for car accident
I was in a car accident back in October, I had injuries and was in and out of the doctors for about four months. I consulted with Robin and right off the bat I knew she knew exactly what she was doing. I then hired her for my case. She replied in a timely manner and always answered my questions. She was always a call away! I recommend Robin, she's awesome!

Fantastic hard working attorney
Robin Gouveia is a personable attorney, responsible, hard working, with observable integrity. She has a strong client friendly staff, who if they cannot answer your question or concern quickly gets you to someone who can. This attorney and her staff treated me with respect, and quite frankly kept me hopeful, as my case progressed. Robin changed my mind about attorneys, because her main focus was on my well being and future. Robin and her staff changed my life and I will always be thankful for that. I would highly recommend this team to anyone looking for an attorney.

The team at D’Olivera & Morgan was outstanding. From the moment I called the office to having an appointment the same day! Robin and Lisa took care of everything. I couldn’t be more pleased with their professionalism and prompt responses to every concern and my case was closed faster than I ever expected. I hope I never need them again but I would surely choose Robin Gouevia and Lisa Lennon at. D’Olivera & Morgan!

Timely and Friendly
This was my first accident where I needed a lawyers help. Since it was a car accident some lawyers didn’t even call me back. When I left a message with Robins office they called right back and had me come in right away. After that, all I needed to do was focus on getting better. Robin and Lindsay took care of everything else and always answered my questions so fast! Loved my experience with them!

Everyone at d'Oliveira & Associates is very knowledgeable and helpful. After my accident, they recommended me to a great chiropractor that helped me tremendously. I was assigned to attorney Robin along with paralegal, Antonia. They were both very informative and approachable with all of my questions and concerns. They made this a very smooth, easy process for me. I am very thankful for their advice and guidance and I will be sure to recommend to anyone looking for an injury attorney.

Exceeded all expectations
I was involved in an auto accident in the summer of 2018 when a commercial vehicle rear ended by car during a stoppage on the highway. I asked around and searched online for a well rated attorney to represent me in recovering the losses I incurred and Attny. Robin Gouveia at d'Oliveira & Associates was recommended by many people. Robin and her paralegal, Maricza were great from the very beginning. The handled everything efficiently and kept me informed throughout the process. The opposing side was know to be tough to deal with but Robin aggressively fought to recover my losses. The end result exceeded my expectations both in service and settlement, I would recommend this office to anyone.
