Divorce
Robyn represented me in my divorce, she did an excellent job. She was very honest and forthcoming, not only did she save me money but her and her staff worked diligently into the eleventh hour to get me a favorable result. As the saying goes "She knows her stuff". I would give her 10 stars if I could, I highly recommend her...

A Shining Star in New Jersey
Robyn is a shining star in the community of NJ divorce attorney’s, a major cut above the rest and highly respected by clients, judges, mediators and court staff alike. I went through a very long and highly contentious divorce and I honestly don’t think I could have gotten through it without Robyn at my side. Smart and passionate, she aggressively championed my case without being overbearing or annoying. She has the rare ability to stay calm and focused, even under the most stressful of situations. Robyn is always thinking 2-3 steps ahead of the process and is very direct about letting you know the realities of NJ divorce law so you will never get blindsided. She never lets you give up in exasperation when something less than fair comes your way. With regard to billing, she does not waste your money on trivial issues or jack up your bill with ridiculous fees. It’s a major comfort to have such a sharp, tenacious and well-respected pro on your side. I wouldn’t even consider anyone else, but if you’re looking for someone to represent you, you better act fast—she is a hidden gem and on the verge of becoming very big in her field.

Confident in the Courtroom
Robyn was referred to me by a friend when I needed to discuss a pending divorce. From the beginning, Robyn's professionalism and emotional intelligence helped me navigate one of the most challenging situations a person could face. Robyn’s attention to detail coupled with her experience make her a valued adviser for any family or divorce legal matter in the State of NJ. One of her most outstanding attributes is her ability to "own" the courtroom. If you need someone with a strong sense of confidence to stand along your side in a family court ...Robyn Ross is your woman!!

Robyn Ross
Robyn handled my case from the beginning and was nothing short of excellent. My case was long, difficult and complex. She was firm and positive when needed and was aggressive when the situation called for it. She was truly my advocate but appropriately managed my expectations. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a family lawyer, she is simply the best.

Extremely Satisfied Customer
Mrs. Ross is an amazing lawyer. She is a very detailed and professional attorney. She walked us through the process and prepared us very well before the case hearing to optimize our results. If you need an honest and hard working attorney, Robyn is the one.

There each step of the way
For over 2 years Robyn handled my divorce. I could not have made it through without her. She was always there no matter what concern I had. I'm sure to a lawyer the concerns and issues that come up are very routine. But when you're the one going through it, it's all very scary and unknown. Robyn never once made me feel like any question I had was silly or didn't deserve a reply. She truly was there each and every step of the way. Professional and knowledgeable without a doubt. I would recommend, and have, to anyone wanting a lawyer they can trust and who will communicate with them on a level in which they can understand. The process is hard. There's no doubt. Having a lawyer I trusted and respected is what kept me sane. Thank you again for all you did for me and my children.

Knowledgable and professional
Robyn Ross is a phenomenal attorney. She was thorough, knowledgable and when needed, aggressive. She was timely in her contacts and filings. Robyn made the process, which is not comfortable, tolerable. I would recommend her to anyone going through a divorce.

Assertive, knowledgeable with integrity, and credible in the field
Everyone complains about their divorce lawyers. The lack of good legal advice, the lack of follow up and the lack of understanding there family matters. When I express the good experience with my lawyer, Robyn Ross, people are always astonished. I’m still dealing with family matters and return to Robyn for support. She is assertive, knowledgeable with integrity, and credible in the field. I’m grateful and fortunate to successfully win my cases.

The dysfunctional Morris County Courthouse requires a knowledgeable and experienced attorney!
Robyn represented me a a three year divorce case. Robyn was thorough and tenaciously litigated my case against a adversary who's reputation was to litigate not settle. Robyn repeatedly tried to negotiate a fair settlement for both parties. She advised me on the points of law that were applicable to my case and how to proceed. My case was out of the ordinary because my spouse refused to settle without a trial. But, throughout the proceedings, we constantly worked towards a settlement and not a trial. Robyn is diligent and thorough. I felt as though I was working with a member of my family. She genuinely cared about my children and me through out the proceedings. The attorney for my spouse has a reputation of destroying a families finances and settling when the money ran out. That is exactly what happened. My former wife's attorney dropped her the day the money ran out. Robyn continued to advocate for me and my children right until the end. I would recommend her to anybody considering getting a divorce!

Disappointed
I had high expectations but was very disappointed. Never followed through with things that she said she would execute. Lawyer made mistakes and I was charged for the time spent.
