Excellent experience with an excellent attorney
I was very pleased to have Robin as my attorney. She was considerate of my difficult family situation and was tuff enough to argue motions in Court. I was very happy with the settlement she negotiated for me and glad I did not have to have a trial. Afterwards, she arranged for the purchase of my new home.I definitely recommend her as a responsive,reasonable and skilled attorney

Very Good with People
I met with two other lawyers before hiring Robin. She actually didn't promise to do what others had promised, and I was surprised. I felt that she was more of a straight shooter, hired her and approved of the way things went. She's nice in person but was firm and correct when dealing with other lawyers. I recommend her very much if you're looking for a lawyer who's smart and tough but not too slick.

Robin negotiated several yearly contracts for my husband’s business. She was tough and astute.and negotiated many fine points which later would have been proven problematic had she not done so. That attention to detail saved profits made on those contracts.

Robin made it easy to get my divorce, I found her to be patient and kind toward me, and tough in Court. This was important because I was distraught and my husband was out to get me. We went to Court a couple of times, and we won. Robin worked with my husband's nasty attorney to get me a great divorce agreement. i think she is a great attorney and I was lucky to have her! I definitely recommend her. I got more than I thought I would.

She explained every step of the process to me and was there whenever I had any questions.Robin fought for and protected my interest and she helped me achieve the outcome I was looking for. I was fortunate to have such a knowledgeable/caring lawyer on my side. I would highly recommend her services with confidence to anyone.

Best experience ever!
I have bought and sold properties many times in my life, and never has any one (or as this time two) closings gone so smoothly! Atty Cotler was prepared for ANYTHING that might arise and kept me in the loop from start to finish. I was very, very pleased with her skills.

A very happy client!
Robin is great , she told me what my divorce rights were and what I could expect to receive in a settlement vs what I might get at trial. I was impressed with her assertiveness and ability to handle, the other attorney. She is persistent and I am very pleased with the results she obtained for me. I also used her to update my Will and I plan to use her when I sell my house. B.A.

Compassionate and Effective. Excellent!
Robin knows the law and procedures, but she also knows compassion. The last thing I wanted was a divorce but there was no other option under the insane circumstances I was subjected to. Robin protected my interests and those of my teenage daughter all the while showing great empathy for our plight. It's very rare to get that combination in a divorce lawyer. Robin offers professionalism, knowledge and empathy. She does not sell her clients out for gaining popularity among lawyers. She'll negotiate according to her clients' wishes but she also will go to trial if she has to. You can count on her integrity and her watching out for you. She is top notch!

Good, Diligent Attorney
Robin was able to show the court how my ex had manipulated several situations to make me look like the villain. Was not intimidated by opposing attorney's team. Had to put my trust in someone, she turned out to be an excellent choice!
