Mr. Koller was a beacon of hope at a time when my options appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed nigh on impossible. Not only was he able to defend me from an unjust accusation, his aggressive and intellectual approach to defend me far surpassed any expectation I believed possible. His unwavering dedication and passion for his clients best interest is exactly what you desire in an attorney. I am eternally grateful for his service and I hereby recommend Mr. Koller without reservation.

Excellent Lawyer
I was referred from a very respected executive to contact Brandon Alexander Robinson, what can I say. I have been dealing with a unethical competitor who has been defaming and slandering our business. He conveyed to me what I needed to do and know before I proceed with my civil defamation case. He took the time out of his busy schedule to help me out when several other attorneys wouldn't even take my call! Priceless....I am now putting together the information I need and will definitely be contacting him asap. I will recommend him always to both family and friends...Believe me it's hard to find men with big mind and big hearts. God Bless you Brandon

Results Better Than Anticipated
Mr. Koller handled my case with expertise and care, keeping me informed all along of how things were progressing and what the likely outcomes would be. His relationships with the court and his diligence on my behalf helped me to get a resolution that is far better than what he originally advised me it would likely be. It is refreshing to work with a professional like Mr. Koller that over delivers and deals fairly and honestly. I am very satisfied and I very highly recommend Mr. Koller.

Mr. Koller certainly has what it takes when it comes to clients needing sound advice and good counsel. He is both savvy and skillful. I felt at ease from our very first meeting. I knew Mr. Koller was the right attorney for me. Hiring Mr. Koller was a sound decision.

Divorce
Tim was a critical part of the team that resolved my unexpected divorce proceedings. He brought forth a compassion for the situation and a plan with varying ways to bring the matter to a close. My interests were kept at the forefront.
Posted by Matt | June 7, 2015
Mr. Koller treats the case like the outcome is as important to him as it is to you.
I met Mr. Koller during a time in my life that was full of uncertainty and anxiety when the fate of the most important thing in my life, my daughter, was basically in the hands of strangers. I had already raised my little girl for almost a year and a half by myself when her mom popped back up in the picture and decided she wanted her. Going with the mother would not have been a good situation for my daughter even if only a night or two a week so naturally I was a nervous wreck. The first thing you notice when you have any kind of legal situation pop up in your life is that EVERYBODY you know is just full of legal advice or stories of similar situations that occurred to them or people they know. The more I heard from people the more nervous I got as it just seemed the norm was for the mother to get the children. Nothing could ever seem to ease my mind except for talking to Mr. Koller as he had to talk me down from panic mode a few times. Not one time did I ever feel like Mr. Koller was speaking to me as just another client or just another case. He always made me feel like I was a priority and my case and daughters fate was just as important to him as it was to me. Not one time over the course of the legal process was Mr. Koller ever too busy to answer questions or deal with any new situations my daughters mom created. Even if this meant he had to give me a call when he got out of court or on his ride home from work when most lawyers would likely have just put it off until the next business day. Court is a very scary thing and it was a great relief for me having somebody in my corner that truly made me feel like my daughter was #1 priority and could easily comfort me with his confidence in his knowledge of the law. Even after I won full custody Mr. Koller has several times checked on me and my daughter. 100% proving my point that if you want a lawyer that cares about the outcome Mr. Koller is that lawyer. I truly feel like Mr. Koller has found his calling and through his hard work, dedication, passion for and knowledge of the law, we won the case and got everything we asked for. My daughter and I are truly in his debt. I will feel like I owe him for the rest of my life for all he has done for my family.
