Expert lawyer
I recently retained Robert King's services for a serious legal matter. I currently live out of state but the incident I was involved took place in NY. In spite of the distance and throughout the entire process, Mr. King demonstrated professionalism, toughness, and a thorough knowledge of the law. This has been an exceptionally stressful situation which could have directly affected my ability to perform certain functions at work. Not only was Mr. King a pleasure to deal, but he got the results I needed in court. I absolutely give him my highest recommendation.

Strongly Recommended
While results are really all that matters, a lawyer who you can trust and get along with is always a bonus! I was charged with multiple drug-related felonies, and Robert was able to have them reduced to a simple misdemeanor and fine, no jail, no probation. Rob King is an extremely proficient defense attorney, and his calm, confident manner made my legal ordeal all but stress-free. Highly recommend him as a defense attorney.

Excellent Lawyer
Mr. King and his team are truly amazing. He is informative, responsive, knowledgeable, and professional throughout my title IX case. I have never dealt with any legal issues and he was there supporting me every step of the way. The staff here are extremely professional and friendly and I had an amazing experience working with them. Mr. King was very transparent throughout the case and was not afraid to give me his honest opinion. Overall I felt very reassured having him and his team working on my case. I would definitely recommend King law if anyone needed legal advice.

Robert King review
Robert King helped me navigate the legal system after car accident that caused significant injury and monetary loss. It was a stressful situation and Bo King and his office staff were informative and always available to answer questions and provide the best legal advice to help me in this personal I just law suit. Bob's expertise and skills with the law and investigation allowed me to relax and recuperate while he worked to assure me of the best outcome. I am eased with his professional skills and advice. He did exactly what he said he would do in working this case for me. I highly recommend him if you have concerns or questions on what to do next after an accident or any other situation requiring legal advice. He guides you fairly and honestly.

Man of His Word
Mr. King's Law Firm was retained by myself for an important legal matter that could have negatively affected my State job. He assured me not to worry and basically guaranteed that he would be able to get a dismissal for the charge I was being brought up on. I must admit I still worried and going to court in itself is very stressful. After 3 court appearances, one of which I did not need to attend, Mr. King's Law Firm were successful in getting the charge dismissed. I was ecstatic and a load of stress was released off of my shoulders. I would definitely recommend Mr. King's services. His staff is very proficient, professional and knowledgeable. Do not hesitate in contacting them for any legal concerns you may have. I now have them on speed dial just in case of the inevitable. Thank you Mr. King and staff!!!

I am most grateful to Robert and his staff, and will be forever thankful to Robert King, and his office, for their high professional standards and commitment to my son's case.

Best of the best
I consulted Robert King about my case. After his recommendations i hired him as my lawyer. He handled every step of the case, kept open communications with me the entire time as much as he was allowed, and got me amazing results that were beyond even his expectations.

He Should Be Your First Pick
I knew we were in good hands from the get go. Mr. King immediately tried to get the full picture of what transpired, was open and upfront with possible scenarios and gave clear instructions on what needed to be done. He gave sound advice and knew how to manage our expectations of what was to come. And yet the entire time he was re-assuring and understanding. His paralegal always knew what was going on and was helpful with appointment information and deliverables. He's not always easy to get a hold of but his office is great at taking messages and he always returned my calls as soon as he could.

Great attorney for car accident injuries!
We were involved in a car accident have injuries we are still seeking treatment for. Bob was called when the attorney we were working with realized our injuries were going to result in filing for a settlement and his office couldn't represent all 3 of the people that were in my car due to conflict of interest. We were hesitant to work with another attorney. Bob was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive, informative, helpful, caring, friendly, easy to work with and coordinated with the other attorneys involved. They coordinated everything for us. We were able to come to a settlement with the insurance company in a reasonable amount of time. I will contact or recommend him if ever needed in the future. Thank you Bob for everything.

Robert Scott King was very helpful to me. I was worried about accruing points on my license as I drive for a living. He was able to reduce my speeding ticket to a non-moving violation with fine. No points!!! Great job!
