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%

Excellent lawyer
Rob took care of my issues, kept informed of any developments in my case and I was very pleased with the outcome. I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again if needed. His price was more than fair. Thank you so much for your help sincerely.

Amazing service
Rob is great, always has the answers to my question and is great at communicating. If you happen to miss him, you don’t need to worry about him getting back to you! Well connected in the New York area, was able to help me quickly with the local courts when they wouldn’t answer. Definitely would recommend to anyone.

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.
