I switched my attorney to Mr.Sunshine in the middle of my divorce. This was the turning point when the legal battle began to change to a more fair game. Prior to that, I experienced humiliation multiple times by my ex-spouse's attorney and my attorney had no idea how to stop it. Thank goodness that I fired the previous one and got Mr.Sunshine to continue the legal battle. His knowledge, expertise, sharpness and preciseness immediately showed an upper hand on and off the courtroom. Under his guidance, my case received a fair judgement. Not only that I regained dignity and confidence but was also awarded what I deserved the most in family property and assets division. I'm very fortunate to have retained Mr.Sunshine as my attorney.
The most impressive of Mr.Sunshine is his professionalism. He always puts the best interest of his clients in mind. He responds to emails/calls within hours, not through his secretary but writing or calling his clients himself. That gives his clients a piece of mind eliminating the anxiety of waiting.
Prior to retain Mr.Sunshine as my legal representative, I wondered if he would be like what the rumor said about his profession -- simply put, "blood sucker". But Mr.Sunshine has proved with his own action and character that he is one of the few remaining exceptions to the bad lawyering reputation.

If you are getting divorced in Rockland County run to Mr. Sunshine's office before your spouse does. His knowledge, experience, skills and personality are beyond comparison to any other attorney in Rockland. Before I hired him I spoke to friends of mine in the legal profession and every one of them told me to get Robert before your wife does. Professional and personable, a true champion of justice. I am lucky to have Mr. Sunshine representing me.

Mr. Sunshine represented my interests during my divorce. He kept me informed during the entire process. He was very knowledgeable about the matrimonial laws. I trusted his judgment as he guided me through the process and as a result of his expertise, I got the best possible result. I would recommend him to anyone who is going through a divorce.
