Grandparent custody
I asked Rob to get me a consent order signed that I had signed by the other parties and had been going back and forth to trial for 2 years. After I got the signatures Rob got the consent order signed by the other attorney and the judge within a couple weeks and Made sure I was informed the whole time. After spending $7000 on legal fees in 2 years. Rob got my consent order signed for me in a couple weeks and 200 bucks.

Liotta - outstanding
Attorney Liotta was very personable, and was very fast with his handling of my requests. He was also very good at keeping me informed of his status, and the status of the requested work. His explanations were in terms I could understand easily, and he was always professional without being distant. I will be using him for all of my legal needs in the foreseeable future.

Honest and trustworthy lawyer
Robert Liotta was great! He was very informitive and always let me know what was going on with my custody case and accepted all input from me. He is very honest and trustworthy. I am a father who was looking to get primary custody of my children. Bottom line is that we were successful and that would not have happened without Robert liotta.

Excellent Lawyer who I trusted with my business decisions!
Robert has helped me on numerous occasions with work related issues, including contracts. He was the most thorough lawyer I have worked with to date. He took the time to explain the legal wording and was very in depth. I felt as if he was truly concerned about my well-being and my business. I would highly recommend his services.

Highly Recommended!
Rob is a very well prepared and knowledgable attorney. He listens to you and remembers every little detail of your case and if anyone has ever needed an attorney, you know how important that is! I strongly recommend Rob Liotta not only for his excellence in practicing law, but for his personalism and devotion to his clients.

Integrity and professionalism
Being a local Physican I have the opprotunity to work with many local and regional attorneys. I can say that without a doubt that Robert Liotta is one of the best that I have come in contact with, so much so that I trust him with all of my personal legal business. He is also very personal and I trust his guidance with my patients and friends who need his expertise. I would without a doubt recommend Mr. Liotta and hold him in the highest esteem.

Amazing lawyer! Did an amazing job helping us with our adoption! Even when matters went scary he helped us and called us way after hours to help us through it! Very good, and informative! Would recommend him to anyone and would def use again!

Thankful to have been led to him
Rob listened to our concerns and told us upfront what his retainer fee was, including breaking down costs. We are pursuing grandparents rights, and he immediately went to work for us. He has had our best interests at the forefront every step of the way. He is always available to us either by phone or via e-mail, responding even on weekends. I would recommend him to anyone who I knew was truthful in their concerns, as you can be sure that he is trustworthy. I don't believe in being less than honest, and Rob has proceeded in our case in the same manner. I can't thank him enough for his work.
