About Robert

Learn Robert’s areas of practice.

5
Practice areas
  1. Federal crime
    25%
    Penalties for a federal conviction are enormous. Drug and gun convictions can put you away for years. Even first-time offenders face stiff penalties. As a former federal prosecutor, I know where to look for weakness and how to negotiate with AUSAs.

  2. Criminal defense
    20%
    Accused of a federal or state felony, misdemeanor, or violation? Under criminal or regulatory investigation? If so, you need an experienced attorney who is not afraid to fight the government to protect your rights and secure a favorable outcome.

  3. Child abuse
    15%
    I defend persons indicated for abuse and neglect on the State Central Registry (SCR). Indicated findings can have a negative impact on your career, reputation, and ability to parent. I will help you appeal and unsubstantiate your indicated finding.

  4. DUI and DWI
    10%
    Making a mistake does not make you a criminal. Yet, nowadays, the consequences of drinking and driving can be severe, effecting your family, career, and freedom. From arraignment to trial and before the DMV, I will work hard to protect your rights.

  5. Military law
    10%
    You worked hard for your reputation, career, and benefits. If you are under investigation for misconduct or sub-standard performance at a Court-Martial, BOI, ADSEP, NJP/Article 15, or MEB/PEB proceeding, I am a former Judge Advocate and can help.

  6. Sex crime
    10%
    An accusation of sexual misconduct can destroy your reputation. A conviction can label you as a sex offender for life. I prosecuted and investigated hundreds of sex crimes involving children and adults. I know how to defend you and your reputation.

  7. White collar crime
    10%

Custom defence attorney
Robert was a tremendous help with my nephews case. He helped us prove his innocence and got the case dismissed before we had expected. My nephew was a victim of his employers devious intentions which landed him trouble driving a truck across border. But Robert was highly effective and quick when it came to getting his name cleared up. Highly recommend!

Great Lawyer & Friendly
I hired Rob back a couple months ago when I got caught up in a couple charges. Out of all the lawyers I spoke with, what stood out about Rob was his overly kindness attitude and willingness to listen and give advice. I can firmly say since the day I met up with Rob in person he has been nothing but a wonderful person to me and did good work for me! I would recommend anyone in trouble to turn towards Rob. YOU WON’T BE DISSATISFIED he will go above and beyond to help you!

Amazing and Quick Results!
Mr. Singer helped me out after I contacted him regarding a CPS case gone bad. I actually called CPS due to a very real concern for my daughter and the system failed me hugely. Much later in the process, I realized that I was the one being investigated. I immediately contacted Mr. Singer and met with him for a face to face meeting almost immediately. He met with me personally during COVID because he takes his work very seriously.. He took the time to explain everything very thoroughly and in a way I could understand. I left his office feeling cautiously optimistic. One can never guarantee results. Mr. Singer was quick to act in an amazing response letter that was very detailed and thought out. He states it could be weeks before we hear a determination from Albany. The determination came in less than a week. He under promised and over delivered! I would highly recommend him. Although I hope I never need him again, he is the first person I would contact to help me with my needs. I also would not have any hesitation to refer him to friends or family.

Phenomenal
Robert is a breath of fresh air. He was quite detail oriented, non-judgemental/ professional during our first consultation. I felt comfortable with my decision to hire him. He followed up constantly to alleviate all my anxieties relating to the case and was prepared to challenge the case’s outcome in the event it wasn’t in my favor. Hiring him was one of my best decisions!

Peace of mind in a difficult situation
Robert was the strong, calm presence i needed to navigate a very difficult and scary situation. Because of his consultation, i now have peace of mind and a plan of action to tackle the issue at hand. Although i only consulted with him and did not end up hiring him full time, just one meeting and a few subsequent emails/phone-calls was all it took to know my options and develop a game plan. He is professional, knowledgeable, caring and i would come to him again in a heartbeat. Thank you Robert!

Military covid vaccine
I am an E-3 in the Air Force and was trying to navigate the covid vaccine landscape. I was still doing research to try and make the best decision, the on base legal office was not helpful or knowledgeable and I had the same experience with medical. Mr. Singer was able to answer many of my questions and was able to find answers to the ones he couldn’t immediately answer, even calling a scientist to answer questions I had about the vaccine formula. The Air Force set a deadline of November 2nd to get vaccinated, and my command responded by calling us in random groups and telling us to get vaccinated or face disciplinary action. I initially refused, and Mr. Singer was extremely knowledgeable in all the possible scenarios and had different courses of action depending on what I wanted to do. He was also responsive, promptly responding to messages and answering calls. Overall positive experience, if I need to hire a lawyer again, he will be my first choice

CPS Investigation
Robert was very empathic and understood our position and used his knowledge of the legal framework to provide us comfort in a difficult period of time. Don't be afraid to utilize him for such matters. You will be glad that you did. I have nothing negative to report regarding him and his knowledge of the law.

The Best - Would Give 10 Stars if Possible
Robert is a smart, passionate, and personable attorney. I called Robert by chance from a Google search and was immediately impressed with his expertise. He explained the process thoroughly, defended me and has handled everything. Robert is sharp, thorough, and experienced. Some lawyers get a bad rap but Robert is different. He cares about what he does and the people he represents.

Excellent results
We consulted with Rob to learn about legal options after my son got into some trouble. He provided thorough information and suggested several actions that would help the case prior to the hearing. His calm demeanor offered emotional support and helped releive some stress. The end result was much better than anticipated and we are eternally grateful for his service and I recommend Rob without reservation.

Hire Mr. Singer!
I was facing a summary court martial (due to fraudulent APFT paperwork) back in May. After being notified by the commander, I went to TDS to discuss about my case. In the meantime, I called several law firms in Upstate as well others in DC, MD, VA, TX, WI and even CA for consultation/representation. I was then referred to Mr. Robert Singer (located in Buffalo) by his old colleague from another Syracuse law firm. I had a brief conversation with him and immediately felt a good vibe about him. He was polite and professional. One thing that really struck me the most was that unlike other lawyers, Mr. Singer texted/called during the weekend on an early Saturday morning from his personal time to offer legal advice. I realized that I had to hire him. His legal fees were reasonable as well. He would send the receipt for services rendered in detail. Meanwhile, the command wanted to proceed the Summary Court Martial to 20 May without even notifying Mr. Singer and an ARMY Major (who was also my military legal counsel from TDS in Ft. Drum). Even though the Major could not represent me, she worked with Mr. Singer. They both requested for an extension for at least a month in order to properly prepare the case. Also, Mr. Singer was representing a Federal legal matter with his client in Buffalo and since being a Naval Reserve Officer, he had to attend training. However, the Brigade legal and the Brigade Commander rejected saying that the court martial had to continue. To add insult to injury, they only offered to extend by 1 day which clashed with Mr. Singer's availability due to the jury deliberations at time. He was evening willing to travel right after it was over to drive 3 hours from Buffalo to represent me. Unfortunately, he couldn't come which meant I had to represent myself. So he along with the Major drafted the legal matter, statements as well as coaching me for the Court Martial through email and conference calls. Pretty much, we stayed up late for this. Even though he wasn't there physically, he worked tirelessly with my case. I was prepared but also resigned to the fact that I might lose a rank which would hinder my retirement & pension (I was really close to 20 years). After the summary court martial (after pleading guilty), the presiding officer fined me 2/3rd fine for one month on my base pay. However, I was fortunate to retain my rank as a SFC and be allowed to retire. I cannot thank Mr. Singer enough. He (as well as the Major) went above and beyond. I strongly recommend anyone who is facing any UCMJ action to seek out Mr. Singer. He will give more than 100% to help out his client to mitigate the case.

Highly Recommend Rob
Rob Singer is not only a man of character but a man of integrity and grit. For our case, Rob spent over 60 hours training, learning and becoming an expert on technology associated with an ankle monitor that malfunctioned. Rather than just go through the motions, Rob spent countless hours interviewing, studying, questioning and reasoning all aspects of the technology to showcase I was not responsible rather the technology failed. In addition, during this process Rob was able to expose the lack of due process and due diligence and failure to adhere to policy and procedures by those acting on behalf of the state. Because of Rob and his tireless work, our family is able to be together today. Rob will fight on your behalf and not just go through the motions to appease clients.

Mr. Singer helped when not many others wanted to take my case
I was having trouble with my condo association board and specifically neighbor making false accusations against me. I contacted several attorneys but many didn’t want to didn’t seem to want to deal with this type of case. Rob was completely sympathetic and listened to my problem and was willing to take my case and came to my residence to discuss and evaluate my issue. Mr. Singer wrote a letter to the board explaining the situation, then when that did not work he personally called the association lawyer and had a detailed discussion over the phone, and continued to follow it up until the problem was resolved. I highly recommend Mr Singer as an Attorney!!

I recently witnessed a murder scene
After what I witnessed, I am blessed to have met and spoken with Rob. The greatness of this man is in his ability to ‘own’ his clients issue or problem. You instantly feel comfortable in his presence. When he speaks, you feel his strength and commitment, ...his expertise and experience are obvious. Rob’s compassion is genuine, he listens carefully and most attentively. Whatever your issue, whatever your needs I guarantee this man will do everything to resolve them.
