Excellent, Experienced Attorney!
Bob helped our family deal with a tricky situation involving a litigious out-of-state party with a truculent attorney who was disinclined to settle, regardless of the facts of the situation. Bob was not only able to help us understand our legal positions, and the cost and risk of each, but was also instrumental in getting the other party to mediate, and come to a settlement reasonable for both parties, in spite of their original position. He gave us the full benefit of his 30-plus years of experience, acted on our behalf at all times, was professional in the face of hostility from the other party's attorney, and was completely empathic to our situation and position. He is a single practitioner, but he had backup when needed, knew exactly who to choose to support us, and always kept us informed as to what was going on. We could not have found a better advocate.

Excellent Attorney!! The best of the best!
If you’re looking for an excellent attorney I would highly recommend hiring Bob Guillory. In my opinion he ranks up there with the best of the best! He’s honest, straight forward, always looks out for your best interest, doesn’t take crap or let anyone bully you, I seriously can’t say enough about him. He’s up front about his fees, always mindful of your budget and doesn’t waste your money with unnecessary correspondence or documents. He’s a wonderfully skilled mediator/negotiator and knows precisely when to use those skills. He is confident and kind, truly putting my mind at ease. He was always spot on with his advice. I had complete faith in him, fully trusting his judgement and always knew he had my best interest in mind when making decisions. After a tragic loss I found myself in need of a good attorney and consider myself extremely blessed having found him. I will never consider hiring anyone other than Bob Guillory if the need should ever arise again!

Absolutely worth it!
Bob has represented me for about 9 years now, dealing with a malignant narcissist and then helping me through the foreclosure process with a favorable outcome. The ex always tries his best to threaten and intimidate me, but after I sent a quick email or phone call to Bob, and he'd remind me that my ex just liked to blow smoke and enjoyed knowing he had so much control over me. Bob would remind me (repeatedly, because I let me ex rope me in) to ignore the ex and let him handle things. After a brief phone call in these situations, Bob left me seeing the reality of the situation which was never nearly what I was dredging up in my mind. Narcissists love to have control, but my ex NEVER had control over Bob, and was, and still is, terrified whenever Bob is involved in the case. Bob won every single time my ex dragged me into court. He is no-nonsense and does not waste your money by engaging your opponent in debates meant to cause you financial harm. Having him as my attorney was like having a very protective big brother at my side. I wish I could bring him to the next state I am moving to and can only hope that I can find an attorney just like him, but I fear he is one of a kind! I absolutely, 100% recommend that you put your faith and money in this very skilled, confident attorney. I guarantee you won't regret it.

Skilled negotiator, aggressive tactics, dedicated to a good outcome
I engaged Attorney Guillory to defend a foreclosure with my mortgage lender. Because I reside outside of Southern Maine, I turned to the Maine State Bar Association Referral Service, who connected us. I could tell within a few minutes of discussing the case that Attorney Guillory was the right person for the case. The goal was to successfully challenge their claim and negotiate a favorable resolution to the case. Throughout the case, Attorney Guillory took this challenge to hear and maintained clear and quick communications with me and opposing council, made timely and appropriate filings, and expertly navigated the issues. Between the facts of the case, circumstances with the lender, and his legal strategy I was able to find a buyer for the property, avoid foreclosure, and reach a very favorable resolution to what originally seemed like a hopeless cause. I would recommend anyone facing hostilities with their lender, or really anyone facing any legal challenges - to talk with Robert Guillory. His office provides dedicated & personal service without pretense and his command of the process, facts, and delicacies of legal strategy are a winning combination that will serve you well.

Excellent Service
It was such a relief to have Bob on my side during a lengthy foreclosure process. Residing in a different state made my presence in proceedings almost impossible but that wasn't a problem as Bob took care of everything. His "Cash for Keys" deal with the bank actually paid for his services and left me with some left over funds. Thanks Bob!

Happy customer
I needed some help and advice with my divorce. Bob was great at explaining my options and was able to provide me with some settlement documentation within a tight time window. I am very grateful for the advice and services Bob provided me.

Attorney Guillory helped me through mediation to achieve desired results to the motion to modify & enforce my divorce judgement.
I was satisfied with the results of the motion to modify and enforce my divorce judgment that Attorney Guillory handled for me. Most of my complaints were resolved to my satisfaction and for those that weren't settled exactly as I would have liked, he still helped to negotiate acceptable solutions. With his help, the transportation requirements for my children's visits with their father were adjusted to be closer to an equal burden, child support was increased to the amount it should have been initially, I was awarded a more fair share of retirement funds, and I was awarded money to replace my car which was my ex-husband's financial responsibility and was in danger of repossession. Attorney Guillory listened to my concerns, kept me focused on the matters at hand, and handled my case in a professional manner, respecting my wishes to make the adversarial process as congenial as possible, not an easy feat considering the nature of my ex-husband and his attorney.

In all respects, from first day of consultation to mediation and subsequent divorce, Mr. Guillory was respectful of my concerns and his explanations of the entire complex process was helpful in every regard. Every call or email was returned expeditiously and I feel he represented me in a professional yet caring manner.

Great Guy
Bob did a great job helping us sort out the issues and set a course. Followed through and helped us close out a gnarly legal situation around our real estate holdings.

Excellent, experienced attorney in many areas. Gets the job done!
Bob has represented me since 2011 through a contested divorce, with a very difficult opposing party, several motions filings on both sides and also through a foreclosure proceeding. We won every time we went to court and I hardly ever had to say a word! I am very impressed with him and would recommend him to anyone who needs someone who will get the job done quickly and professionally. He knows what he's talking about and always puts me at ease when I get worried. Hire Bob and relax and let him take care of your legal issues!

A Cut Above the Rest
I was in a tough spot with my mortgage holder when I first saw Mr. Guillory. After my first meeting he set my mind at ease and has been awesome through out this whole ordeal! He is very knowledgeable and well prepared for court. I was extremely impressed at how he handled himself in court when the opposing attorney seemed to be aggressive. We won the first battle! I always get a quick response or explanation when needed. He tells me up front what to expect and what options are open to me. He listens and lets you make good informed decisions. I was lucky to find him to help me out of this mess! I am grateful to have found someone who actually cares and wants to help you! Thank you Mr. Guillory for your continued support! Sincerely Deb

Mortgage Issue
Bob worked on a mortgage complaint for me. The outcome was very favorable in my case. Additionally Bob was well connected in the legal community in Maine and was able to draw collective advice from his peers. Bob was very straightforward in fee structure and worked very well with my budget. Good outcome and would recommend Bob!
