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.

Bob is as fine an attorney and human being as you will ever find. He is respected by Judges and adversary counsel. He cares about his clients and has a great ability to follow up on even the smallest details. I would trust Bob with any matter.
