My attorney--an associate at Robert's firm--was not able to represent me at the hearing for child maintenance because of a family emergency. So Robert contacted me the day before the scheduled hearing, and asked me a list of pertinent questions.
I immediately knew he had picked up on issues that hadn't been brought up before. Armed with those facts, he immediately began to put on the pressure. His first emails to the other side were polite but soon turned cutting because of the delay tactics used by the other side. (This legel process, which also included a dissolution of marriage had been taking much longer than necessary considering it was such a simple case. The other side simply would not play ball, further racking up legal fees for me.)
The following morning I met Robert at his office and clicked with him. He has extensive family-law experience, and I felt very comfortable going to court with him, regardless of the fact that the other attorney was trying to become a well-known TV commentator.
Robert is direct, sharp and takes no nonsense, as a former journalist, as well. He did his homework quite quickly and ended up getting me an order for 45% more than we were initially asking for, plus attorney's fees.
He is the man. And if you ever find yourself, sadly, needing a family lawyer, rest-assured you'd be in excellent hands with Robert Kohlman.

Robert persuaded me to proceed with my annulment--and I glad that he did. Although my ex-husband tried to tell me that I could never get an annulment because he had destroyed the documents, Robert obtained the necessary documents and get the annulment within five months. My ex-husband did not know what him. And now he has to pay my attorney's fees and costs!

Robert Kohlman is an exceptional family law attorney. I was fortunate to have retained Robert to represent me with my divorce. My experiences with Robert and his firm make very confident in recommending him to anyone needing family law representation. Robert stands out as an attorney in three mains areas, including his breadth of knowledge on family law, his substantial experience with litigation, and his unmatched accountability. When Robert says he's going to do something, you can trust he will get it done.
The quality of Robert's work makes it very evident to me that he loves practicing family law. This passion for his work combined with his competitive nature make Robert a legal shark who you want on your side.
Something that impressed me in particular was how thorough Robert was in preparing for my case. Robert has a unique ability to see the potential directions a case can go. He leverages this foresight to devise sound strategies and arguments while avoiding potential risks and threats to a case. He covers all the angles of a case upfront to approach legal representation from an informed foundation. Robert's meticulous, proactive casework gives him a unique advantage; enabling him to deliver well-thought-out arguments with confidence.
I can't say enough good things about Robert. If you want the best, hire Robert. You will not regret having him on your side.
