Thank you from the bottom of my heart
I am writing this review to express my gratitude for the wonderful work done by Michael Zigismund and the law firm of Robert Tsigler I had a felony conviction was put on a registry that was later unjustly extended to last my whole life. Things just keep getting worse because of this. This black cloud just kept following me. after about 18 years I got tired of it all and decided to fight back. So I hired the Robert Tsiglers law firm where I met Michael Zigismund this man turn out to be the greatest person thoughtful genuine he put together The greatest petition and motion to modify the consequences of my conviction. Neither the prosecution nor the courts decided to contest the motion. therefore I’ve been granted a new lease on life !thank you from the bottom of my heart and God bless!!!

Incredible Firm
I hired this firm to help me resolve a matter in criminal court. I'm so thankful to have found them and to have received their counsel. This is the team you want representing you! They readily obtained the desired outcome for my case and gave me back my peace of mind, even while the outcome was still pending; I couldn't have felt more reassured while dealing with a difficult situation. They also couldn't have been more communicative and were even willing to speak with friends and family.

Best divorce lawyer
Robert is the best divorce lawyer I could’ve hired. He doesn’t play when it comes to assets. I got the house and a portion of the retirement account. I’m very happy with the outcome.

The Best Legal Team
I hired the Tsigler Law Team to represent me on a very serious serious case. I was very worried and nervous. Robert and the entire team helped me stay calm and confident through the process. They got me an unbelievable result. I could not be happier or more thankful. I highly recommend them.

Fantastic! What a blessing!
Robert Tsigler and his firm helped me feel at ease. Explaining what they will do initially and how they will proceed. They let me know they work as a team and would answer any questions I had. His associate lawyer Michael Zigismund is very specific and to the point about what information he needs from you. I was impressed by their professionalism, and updates

Michael Zigismund, Esq
Michael Zigismund is an associate attorney at the law firm of Robert Tsigler regarding a potential sexual assault. From Day 1, Michael was easily accessible and, if I needed to leave a message, he ALWAYS returned it the same day or evening. Michael always took time to explain EXACTLY what course of action he was pursuing, and why, always returned my call readily. He took time and effort to explain the exact court of action and the reasons why they were being undertaken. The arrangement ended extremely satisfactorily. I readily recommend Robert Tsigler Law Firm and Michael Zigismund in particular

Professional & Honest
On one weekend I’ve discovered that my bank frozen my account for something that was not my fault. I was really worried and upset. I searched the website for the best defense attorney and Law Offices of Robert Tsigler PLLC came up. I contacted the firm via online and Mr. Michael Zigizmund (the attorney) called me back right away. He understands my situation and given me clear explanation of what he will do to help me with my case. Not long after I hired Michael; my bank unfrozen my account. I highly recommend Michael (and the firm) for the expertise, professionalism, responsiveness to my calls/emails, and the followed up.

Best criminal defense
I chose the Law Offices of Robert Tsigler to represent me based on the reviews online. Now I am writing one hoping that it can help others choose the best legal defense they can get. Their service is not cheap, but in cases when your future and the future of your family is at stake, you need to get the best. All the staff was very supportive. I would like to mention Mabel, the office manager and Michel Zigismund, our lawyer during the beginning phase. My biggest acknowledgment and gratitude go to Hanna Shoshany, my lawyer during the second phase and trial. Ms. Shoshany defended me with passion, professionalism, and true caring. Even though it was a very difficult case she proved me not gulity.

Very professional n dedicated Staff.
Very professional n dedicated team of Criminal attorneys and staff. Loads of respect to Miss Mabel and Michael. When I first consulted with Mr Robert he knew exactly what I was going through. He told me not to worry and that everything would be alright. When you think you hire one attorney it’s a whole team that work to get the results. I got the cased dismissed. All I did was go to work take care of my family and let them do there job. 5 star all day. Love y’all.

Thank God for this attorney
I thank this attorney for my freedom and my current success. I got arrested back in 1/2018 by may 5/2018 I was out of rikers and in a program. Through out my time in the program this firm called and checked on me and how I was doing. Although they are a firm and have to do business, they were more like family to me. Fast forward to today, I no longer have a felony on my record. I was supposed to do probation but didn't have to because of this firm. I'm happily engaged with a daughter, and I have a great job with great benefits. I couldn't do all this without them. Thank you for everything.

A nightmare with a good ending all because of Attorney Hanna!
Attorney Hanna Shoshany is an amazing lawyer. I reside in the state of Georgia but Attorney Hanna made me feel as if I was right by her side as she was dealing with my case. The situation occurred in NY and it pertained my 17 year old son and a criminal charge I highly disagreed with. After calling other attorneys late that evening, she was the only person that made me feel like she was ready to work on this immediately regardless of the time. When I decided to continue with her, she immediately began working on my case and resolved the issue that very next morning, allowing my son to be on a flight home that afternoon. Had I not contact her, I feel like my child would have been at that jail longer despite the charge, leaving with a damaged background and possibly more. Attorney Hanna did everything in her power to make sure when she left the court room, my son left with her. I applause her work ethics, she did everything from making late calls (until midnight) to negotiating bail bonds and charges. Hanna even made sure after everything was done that my son made it to his next destination safely in my absence. Thank you again for your service!

AMAZING REPRESENTATION!
I learned about Tsigler’s firm through google, he offered a free consultation. That went over very well and I hired Mr.Tsigler immediately to represent me. He was on top of the case from the minute I hired him, I never had to seek him out as he always contacted me with more information. Even his assistant Mable was the sweetest and very helpful! Mr.Tsigler always showed up on time and halfway into my case, he appointed another attorney from his firm to take over - who was just as effective. The result was that my case was dismissed and sealed in less than a year. I highly recommend this firm to everybody! Although the process was stressful to go through, they made it enjoyable. Hopefully I will never need another lawyer but if I did, I would most definitely hire the Tsigler Firm!

Completely satisfied
I went through a few dozen attorneys on here looking at reviews and found Robert. I had a bench warrant in the city from 2013 and I had recently moved to MD. This warrant was preventing me from getting employment. Short story he was able to get my warrant vacated quickly, no fine and case dismissed and sealed. Couldn't ask for more. You need legal help call this man.

Excellent representation! Professional and thorough
Mr. Tsigler was professional, thoughtful, direct, and transparent every step of the way. Any questions or concerns I had throughout the process were answered promptly by Mr. Tsigler or Mabel, his fantastic paralegal. Retaining Mr. Tsigler’s services after our initial consultation gave me instant peace of mind, and ultimately yielded favorable results in criminal court. Highly recommended!

Bad news first...
Robert was 15 or 20 minutes late to the court date but that’s the only bad thing I can say about him. He was very professional, knowledgeable, and confident about my case. When I consulted with him I knew he was the attorney for me because he answered all of my questions before I could even ask them and in the end we were able to get the very favorable decision just as he anticipated. I would definitely refer my family and friends for his services.

Best Money I ever spent
Mr.Tsigler and Mable are amazing. My brother was arrested And due to his prior history was facing 7 years, through their great work and commitment my brother only had to do under a year. Also, he assisted in helping keep him From receiving a parole violation. He helped save my mom a lot of heartache and for that I’m forever grateful. He was expensive but it was the best money my family ever spent.

Favorable Outcome/Professional Service
No one wants a family dispute that end up in the criminal court system but we did. When I initially called numerous law offices on Friday afternoon, many were close. He was the first to call back. Explain briefly the case to him, he gave an overview of the process. Unfortunately, family had to sleep in jail for the night - Friday evening, Weekend. However, the following day we had our arraignment with favorable outcome. Mabel is assistant was very helpful and open and professional. Thank you
