Mr, DeGroot has represented me for several decades in numerous litigation's and issues. He is one of the most accomplished and fair attorney's I have ever dealt with. He will advocates four you as thought it was his own personal issue. I recommend him highly.

My ex wife accused me of following her and stalking her. De Groot and staff were able through traffic reconstruction and cell phone records demonstrate that it was she who was following me. I was found not guilty and can see my kids once more.

I endorse this lawyer. Bob is excellent. He has a thorough understanding of law and procedure, and always goes the full distance for his clients. He also makes himself available to help to other attorneys with difficult problems or issues. A real team player.
