Robert was recommended to me when I needed counsel on a personal matter as someone who could be ferocious when necessary and knew about guardianship. He was all that. His advice was absolutely correct. He was generous with his time and caring about my family member. I highly recommend Robert if you are in a tough situation and need someone in your corner who knows the law and has experience dealing with difficult situations.
