A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ROB: While he was a first-year student at Delaware Law School in 1980, his father, local South Jersey lawyer Harold P. Gleaner, called his friend Frank M. Lario, Jr. This initiated what turned out to be a long and close relationship. Shortly thereafter, Rob met with Frank and his partner, Joseph M. Nardi, Jr. and became a law clerk. As time went on, he was promoted to an associate with Lario and Nardi, and eventually became a partner in the firm in 1987.

While the legal experience was invaluable, what was more important was the lessons learned about working with clients and their problems. No one was ever turned away. Fees were paid in accordance with the individual’s ability to do so. Frank loved to tell stories about how his father, Frank M. Lario, Sr., also a prominent lawyer, was sometimes paid by way of vegetables or bartered services. The point of the story was that one should never let a fee come between the lawyer and his client. Frank and Joe eventually became Superior Court Judges and the firm continued until July of 1994 when Rob joined his father, Harold, who was practicing law in Audubon, New Jersey since the early 1960’s.

Trusted family attorney
Rob has served the legal needs of several members of our family for about 30 years or more... everything ranging from divorce, real estate, wills, personal injury, etc. It is a wonderful sense of comfort to have a highly trusted legal resource such as Rob at our disposal. He is generous with his time, and very available and attentive to inquiries.

Real Estate
I looked high and low for a lawyers with the experience and knowledge to assist me with a Subject-To transaction. I found Mr Gleaner and not only was he able to assist me in that deal but I now obtain his services for all my real estate deals. He is insightful and very well rounded in all areas real estate and business law.

Estate Planning and Job Termination Legal Review
I have utilized Rob's support in a multitude of legal reviews and execution's over the past 17+ years. Rob's thorough knowledge of the legal system coupled with his years of experience empowers him to be a valuable asset in my legal support staff. Most recently he assisted in my estate planning and well as legal council for my job termination. As always, his support was outstanding and much appreciated.

Investment property evictions
Rob went above and beyond. Provided a consultation based on my situation, developed and quickly implemented a strategy. They even handled collecting and setting up a payment plan for a tenant that was able to stay. Great service. Will use for all landlord/tenant eviction needs and we have begun referring him out as the buyer and seller representative for our real estate company. Very professional. Couldn't be happier.

Real estate transaction
Mr. Gleaner handled the real estate transaction between myself and my son. He made it very stressless. He explained everything in laymen terms and helped us made the best decisions for both of us. His staff was also very pleasant and efficient.

Knowledgeable, Professional, Easily contacted
Rob was my lawyer for my divorce and family matter. From day one, Rob has been available at any time. He has been honest with me about everything whether or not I wanted to hear it. He explains everything so well. He puts in so much effort to fight for you. But also is realistic to what may or may not happen. He is so knowledgeable in his area of law and is very professional.

Business and Real Estate Lawyer
I hired Mr. Gleaner for a couple of my real estate and business projects. Even if they were difficult cases, he made it so easy to be successful. From the initial consultation, initial battle plan, appearance in front of the township board, dealing with engineers, dealing with other lawyers to the final result, everything was flawless. There is nothing like having the right people around you when you have a difficult case. He is part of my "dream team". He is the most prompt professional I ever dealt with. He responds to emails even on the weekends sometimes. He keeps his promise when it comes to cost and time frames. He has talented people working for him which makes everything easy and the success certain. If there were 10 stars, I would rate him with 10 stars.

Landlord/Tenant Law & Evictions
Robert is our one-stop, go to professional for all our owner's legal issues and questions. He does most of our eviction filings, negotiates with tenants for payments plans, and when the account needs it, court appearances. Fantastic Advisor!

Excellent Family Lawyer
Rob was my attorney and represented me in all aspects of my divorce in 2004. Rob has an outstanding knowledge of the law, is able to communicate complex matters so that they are easily understood, and he negotiated a realistic property/custodial agreement with my ex-spouse so that I was able to get on with my life, and to be the great Father for my son that I always wanted to be, and still am today. Rob was able to work with me so that the entire experience was affordable, and I could not have hoped for or expected a better professional relationship than the one I had then and still have today with my attorney....Rob Gleaner.

Excellent Family Law Attorney
I have been very satisfied with the services of Mr. Rob Gleaner who helped my husband and I in our adoption case. He is highly knowledgeable and experienced attorney and made the adoption of our son easy, smooth and fast. I very much appreciated his counsel and advice through every step of the adoption; his attention to details, professionalism and familiarity with the justice and legal systems earned him the respect of the officials he deals with, and this has impacted very positively on my case. Mr. Gleaner is also very friendly, supportive and responsive. He was honest and went above and beyond to be sure that we were given information in a timely manner. He helped us to feel educated and informed about the process and connected to our fears on a personal level which made the adoption much easier. Without Rob Gleaner, I am not sure that it would have gone as well as it did and we are forever grateful. We have often referred to him over the years as one of our “life heroes”. He continues to represent many of our friends and family who we have referred to him and all with rave reviews. His fees were fair and he is honest and ethical. I would highly recommend Mr. Gleaner to anyone needing a family law attorney. I am more than grateful as well as honored to have worked with such an exceptional person.

An Expert in Divorce and Real Estate Law
Mr. Gleaner represented me during a acrimonious divorce case. The case actually continued several years after the final divorce decree. Rob Gleaner fought vehemently for my child support and always gave me sound, reasonable advice during difficult times. He actually answered my frantic phone call on a Thanksgiving night! I would highly recommend him for any divorce or real estate case.

Highly recommend for divorce and real estate matters
I was referred to Rob by a friend who got her divorce with him as her attorney. Best recommendation ever. He was sensitive to my situation and really listened to all of my concerns. I really had no idea how I was going to move on after being with my husband for 15 years. In working with him, we had a successful negotiated settlement, and I received a fair amount of alimony, and with the money that I got from the sale of our home, I bought a nice house in a nice neighborhood. He helped me with that transaction as well. I could have never gotten to this point without his assistance. This is definitely an attorney who you want on your side!

I highly endorse Mr. Gleaner
Mr. Gleaner has represented me and my husband in various areas of the law. In each and every case we were treated and advised with the utmost knowledge, repect and dignity. He is more than fair in his fee schedule and all of our outcomes have been favorable. He is honest and up-front on what we could expect and his predictions are accurate. I am shocked and appalled by the previous review and would recommend Mr. Gleaner without hesitation or reservation.

Worst lawyer in Cherry Hill area
Mr.Gleaner promised me the world, but instead left me pennyless! I hired Gleaner to do a divorce case and he totally bungled the case. My case was an easy case but because of his rogue ways and missteps, I had to pay my ex alimony that he kept promising I wouldn't have to. His approach in court was misguided and did not target the correct aspects of the case. After $50,000 later, I still have to pay my ex alimony, which is preposterous. I wouldn't reccomend him to get a dog out of animal control! Whatever you do, stay away from him !!!
