Satisfied Client K.
I contacted Rob through a link I saw on the internet, concerning a particular collection agency. I consulted with Rob and based on his responses I hired him straight away. From that point on I was confident that I made the right decision. Needless to say, the result was in my favor. Even if it did not, I would recommend Rob hands down. You will be educated, advised and responded to every step of the way. Thanks Rob, job well done!

Fantastic lawyer
I hired Robert to help me out after my bank account had been levied due to a judgement against me that I had no knowledge about. Robert handled the case wonderfully, keeping me informed every step and standing up to the lawyers against me. It took quite a while because of covid but he stayed the course and we won. I would highly recommend Robert and hire him again in a heartbeat. Stand up lawyer. Stand up law firm.

Extremely skilled, positive and confident!
I reached out to Robert Nahoum via email for some help in a yo-yo car sale I unfortunately had experienced. He responded quickly and gave me a call to get more details and understanding of exactly what the dealership had done. By the end of the call he was ready to represent me and take on my case! Throughout the entire process he kept me informed and confidently stood his ground against the other (lawyer) representing the fraud dealership. Within months, we were able to settle for an amount they owed me and close the case. I would 100% have Robert Nahoum represent me again as his client in any case.

Helped me Settle for Half the Amount!
Robert successfully helped me settle for half the amount of a $11,500 credit card debt. Does more need to be said? His fee was reasonable and I'm very happy I went with Robert.

Credit card debt settlement
I found Robert originally by reading these avvo reviews and I have to say his honesty, professionalism, and strategy to help with my credit card settlement came thru and definitely delivered. He negotiated with the credit collector and was able to get them to cut my settlement very close to half the amount. Robert always gets back to you in a timely manner and communicates effectively with collectors and you.

Exceptional Attorney
I found Robert to be phenomenal and would not hesitate to recommend his services. He was not only very helpful, easy to speak with and responsive but also extremely well-versed in his legal area of expertise. I reached out to him to help a close relative with a credit card debt dispute that had been mishandled by a previous law firm. Robert not only took the time to listen but was very detailed and thorough in explaining all options available and steps involved with each one. He never tried to push any additional services unless he believed there would be a true benefit and even when he made a suggestion he also made sure he was very clear on the potential risks of going with the respective alternative. He was able to resolve my relative’s issue in his favor and even undid some of the damage that had been caused by the previous firm. All in all, I think Robert is a truly competent, responsive, and talented attorney. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for advice and/ or assistance with a debt dispute or bankruptcy matters!

Competent and Compassionate
I contacted Robert Nahoum after reading one of his articles online regarding collection practices. Even though it was clear, after just a few minutes, that he would not be able to help me with my situation, he continued to share his time and expertise so generously. He helped me to understand the collections law and how it is applied more clearly. He even helped me with a few choice pieces of advice for my case, even though he knew I could not pay him to take my case. He is smart and kind. I will definitely hire him in the future should the need arise (hopefully never, but he is a good guy)!. Good luck!

Recommend Highly
My experience in dealing with Robert Nahoum could not have been better. I was facing a wage garnishment from a very old judgment. Mr. Nahoum explained my options and the possible outcomes for each clearly. Once Mr. Nahoum became involved in my case, it became clear that I had an extremely knowledgeable, competent, and hardworking attorney on my side. He kept me up to date on all aspects of the case, responded to all of my inquiries quickly and professionally, and resolved the issue in a very satisfactory manner. I believe that if you have a problem in the area of debt collection or consumer protection, you will not be able to find an attorney more skilled or knowledgeable than Robert Nahoum.

We Won
In a nutshell I had a crazy attorney trying to sue me for my son sugery, After I was under a payment agreement. He tried to sue me out of juristriction and was looking for crazy fees and interest. Years later. I was recommended to Robert Nahoum through a local attorney here on Long Island. Robert worked with me and explained to me what he was doing and how we were going to approach this. He made me feel comfortable and I trusted him from the beginning he worked pro bono and explained all fees etc. At the end Robert Nahoum won our case I got paid, He got paid, And we were happy about the outcome I Highly recommend him for any Fair credit protection act case. If I every need him again I won't hesitate to hire him. Great Job Robert

Highly Skilled Lawyer and Excellent Professional!
The specificity of Robert's website made me reach out to him on a cold call for help dealing with an aggressive debt collector taking steps to garnish wages from an apparent default judgment (news to me) they had managed to secure years before. With little time to act, Robert immediately instructed me on what to do first with the courts (things were happening over the holidays and I was going out of town). From there, I hired him over the phone and within 2 short months, he got the entire matter dismissed by the court and the judgment vacated. He is truly an advocate for people. I was consistently impressed with his upbeat nature. Robert lets you know what 'can' be done. In my experience with him, he gladly explained things and did so simply; he charted a course of action; and went the extra mile on due diligence and it's that extra bit of due diligence along with his thorough knowledge of the subject that put the final nail in the plaintiff's coffin. His work ethic is bar none. He has my utmost recommendation.

Very Impressed
My daughter and I were facing an old judgement. Found Robert Nahoum on line and gave him a try. So pleasantly surprised. He is so professional and he explained everything clearly. The same day that I retained him on this case, he got in touch with the attorneys who sent the judgement. He waited one week and sent them another letter to them because they didn't respond. Less than two weeks, my case was dismissed and vacated. A pleasure to work with and I highly recommend him.

Mr. Nahoum recently represented me in a very complex FDCPA case. He navigated the legal aspects brilliantly. He always returned calls promptly and kept me fully informed. He secured a fair settlement, in a short period of time. I would highly recommend utilizing his expertise when needed. He is most honest and ethical, a winning combination.
