An Attorney that Cares!
Family law can be very confusing, and I was very fortunate to have Robert and his team explain everything to me in terms I could easily understand. From our first conversation, Robert was straight forward on areas which were negotiable and those that were not with a goal of minimizing legal fees. He is highly responsive and proactive, rather than being reactive. Robert's team kept me abreast of my case's status and next steps. Robert is empathetic and understands that his clients are going through a highly sensitive situation. If anyone is looking for a knowledgeable family law attorney that truly cares, then don't think twice about retaining Robert Stone Jefferey to be on your side!

Best family lawyer!
Mr. Robert listened and cared about my rights as a father and was able to help me get as close to the custody as I wanted. I just wanted to say how much I appreciated the knowledge, expertise, understanding, and patience of Mr. Robert.

Amazing attorney
Robert is smart, aggressive, very knowledgable and a great person. He took the time to listen to my needs and fought very hard to achieve my goals. He is very professional. He returns messages right away and always kept me updated with my case. I always felt I was in good hands. I'm glad I hired him for my divorce.

I wish i could give ten stars for amazing service
Robert helped me out when I was in a real tight pinch and needed emergency legal representation with only a few days before court. I was referred to Robert with my child custody issues in Miami and representation on a frivolous domestic violence injunction at the same time. My divorce case was ongoing in Texas and I had to deal with Jurisdictional issues in Florida where my Ex was trying to keep my children and refusing to allow me access to them. Robert put my mind at ease by strategizing a detailed course of action and always kept me informed on everything we were doing and made sure to coordinate with my attorney in Texas, so everyone was on the same page. Robert is extremely diligent and always made sure to keep me well informed by taking the time to educate me on the legal process and updating me on the status of the case. This was such a relief especially with the emotions that get stirred up in court settings and not knowing what to expect. I can’t stress enough how detailed Robert is it really shows in his work ethic. The best decision I ever made was hiring Robert to guide me through these issues with my children and I highly recommend Mr. Jeffrey for any issues concerning the same you will not be disappointed

The best lawyer ever
Mr. Jeffery was able to defend me in a child custody case; his calm and empathetic demeanor offered emotional support while always keeping my children’s best interest in mind. Mr. Jeffery always maintained his professionalism and continued support. I feel so indebted to him for his hard work. Mr. Jeffery is a knowledgeable and trustworthy attorney. My family and I are eternally grateful for his services and would recommend him without reservation. I’d hire him again.

Outstanding service, strategic and thorough
Initially, my case was a name change, and Robert was recommended to me as a family attorney. Robert quickly realized that my name issues stemmed from many years ago, when I was naturalized. He came up with an alternative strategy towards the government agencies involved, and helped me identify resources that would expedite the process each step of the way.

Finest Foreclosure Attorneys in Florida
We hired Robert for a foreclosure case. We believed all along the Bank's irresponsible tracking of our payments created a false signal for them to attempt foreclosure. Not only was it difficult to deal with as a foreclosure it was even more difficult when we believed the Bank had no basis for the case. Duval county Judges handling foreclosure cases are more predatory and anti homeowner than the worst banks. You need a lawyer with experience and outstanding advice. I would not hesitate to hire Robert or his firm for any similar case. His advice was spot on all the way even when we didn't want to believe it. The end result was we had file CH 13 to save the house from the Bank and the Duval County Judges. It paid off with an unbelievable loan mod I couldn't get on my own after 4 years of trying.

Outstanding
Outstanding is the best description that I can offer for RJ. From the beginning to the end he was easy to work with. He explained the situation and understood our desires and concerns. He kept us informed along the way. He is a strong and knowledgeable advocate that was ultimately able to get us not just one but two very good options to work with. Modification with approximately 100k in principle reduction or 8k in relocation expenses and the chance to avoid significant pending expenses in the property. In the end he was an outstanding value and helped us achieve the best possible conclusion to our unfortunate situation. I will certainly recommend him and the firm without reservation.

RJ helped me save my property
RJ was very helpful, his efforts lead to a desirable settlement of my pending foreclosure. His efforts made it possible to keep my home; reduced my payment by over 60% and a reduction of mortgage note by 40%.

Thanks for all your help!
After the economic downturn in '08, I lost my job, my husband's business failed and the value of our home became half of the mortgaged amount (what it cost to build it.) We couldn't afford the mortgage payments, so we tried to sell our home. No one would even look at our home for the amount we needed to pay off our mortgages. We were referred to Robert Jeffrey's law firm, Combs Greene McLester, to seek help with our pending foreclosure. Mr. Jeffrey helped us understand what we were facing and all options available. We made a decision to short sale our house and eventually received an offer that the banks were willing to consider. However, the first mortgage lender wanted us to sign a promissory note for $30,000 in addition to the amount the buyer offered in order to approve the short sale. This was something we felt we could not afford in our current situation. However, after much deliberation, my husband and I agreed to the promissory note terms just so we could sell the house and move on with our lives. This is where Mr. Jeffrey really helped us. After I explained the situation to Mr. Jeffrey, he contacted the attorney for the mortgage company and was able to convince the attorney to have the promissory note requirement removed from the short sale approval. This is such a big help to us! He is making sure that the mortgage lender issues the settlement letter promptly so our credit scores can begin to improve. Robert Jeffrey is knowledgeable, professional and helped us thoroughly understand all options. I am very grateful for his council and truly appreciate all of his help. I will most certainly recommend him to others when the opportunity arises. Thanks again RJ!

Mr. Jeffrey assisted in my divorce from the initial separation through the final judgment. He was professional, thorough, and diligent. He explained the legal process in a manner that I understood and took the time to answer all the questions I had.

More than expected...
I found Mr Jeffrey through a friend and immediately was impressed at how respectful and knowledgeable he was. I think the rate I was given for the work done was more than fair compared to other lawyers I had consulted with and I appreciated the fact that he followed up with me and had the ball rolling on my case so quickly. I will definitely be recommending him to friends and family.

Foreclosure Evaded
I hired the law firm, Combs Greene McLester after discussing my foreclosure case with several law firms. Steve Combs was honest and up front on the merits and expected length of time for my type of case. The pricing was extremely reasonable. After acceptance, Mr. Combs assigned the case to Robert Stone Jeffrey. Right from the beginning, I felt Mr. Jeffrey was trustworthy and set my expectations on possible outcomes of the case. Mr. Jeffrey was very responsive with any inquiries I had. He kept me well informed throughout the proceedings of the case. The team even recommended a good real estate agent, Adele Cloutier to help perform my short sale. In the end, my house was sold in a short sale and I was able to evade foreclosure. Thanks to the hard work by Mr. Jeffrey and the rest of his staff at the law firm of Combs Greene McLester. Overall I am extremely pleased and would hire this firm again and definitely work with Mr. Jeffrey.
