If you’re looking for an attorney who has extensive knowledge of Guardianship law, an expert and master in litigation and with a heart to help you win, Mr. Robert M. Trinkler is that person. He is without question, the best of the best. In my particular situation, I had worked with a different attorney trying to protect my 89-year old mom from having all her rights removed after my sister, acting in retaliation and control, petitioned for mom to be declared incompetent and have Plenary Guardianship granted to her. It was extremely important for me to protect mom from this unwarranted and unjust petition and preserve all her legal rights. However, we were completely let down by the attorney and a Court Order was issued removing all moms’ rights. Greatly disappointed and heartbroken for mom, I felt hopeless in this situation and desperate to find someone who could reverse the unfortunate ruling. After viewing a video on the website for Adrian Philip Thomas Law Firm, I contacted them, hopeful for any help. That same day I received a call back from Mr. Robert M. Trinkler and I briefly described to him what had happened. He quickly grasped the scope of the situation and counseled me on all my options. Mr. Trinkler’s council was heartfelt and his confidence that he could help me gave me renewed hope. His abundant knowledge about Guardianship was immediately apparent and very impressive. His tone was always calm and reassuring. After my first conversation with Mr. Trinkler, I was sure my prayer in my search for help had been answered. Mr. Trinkler immediately went to work on my case and later filed a Suggestion of Capacity for mom. The subsequent medical examination determined mom’s competency beyond any doubt; however, the opposing side continued a bitter and untruthful battle to prevent restoration of mom’s legal rights. At the recent Hearing, speaking before the Honorable Judge who would make the final determination whether or not to restore all moms’ rights, Mr. Trinkler was flawless. His demeanor was the perfect blend of authority and calmness and when speaking, his knowledge of the law flowed effortlessly. After Mr. Trinkler masterfully presented his argument on my mom’s behalf, the presiding Honorable Judge ordered full restoration of mom’s rights. I will never forget and I’ll always be grateful to Mr. Trinkler and his wonderful staff for all their help. I don’t believe we would have gotten this hard fought victory without Mr. Trinkler’s exceptional expertise, his ingenious knowledge of the law and his sincere heart to help those who really need help. I believe that Mr. Trinkler is the best lawyer in the state and I’m confident you’ll agree with me if you have opportunity to use him for your legal issues.

I started conservatorship proceedings in the State of CA for my senior Aunt who suffered from dementia. She was abducted and moved to the State of Florida where she was being exploited. One would think that this would be a simple “open and shut case” however; that is the furthest from the truth. In a world where our court systems are inundated with similar cases, it’s difficult for these Judges to keep up with the demand therefore these things can easily slip through the cracks. After 6 months of getting know where in the State of CA, only to be dismissed because of jurisdictional reasons, Mr. Trinkler managed to run with this in the State of FL. He convinced the Judge for adversarial proceedings where it was uncovered that my Aunt suffered medical and financial abuse. I am pleased to announce that we settled and now my Aunt is safe from harm’s way. I highly recommend hiring Robert Trinkler and Daniel McDermott men of great character, strength, tenacity..these men will get the job done as quickly as possible!

What I learned from my experience with an extremely complex probate case is in order to win a client must have the best and most effective representation possible. It’s rare to find an overly talented attorney like Mr. Robert M. Trinkler who hands down met and exceeded my expectations by setting an objective to receive a set monetary award which was the final outcome of my case. The adversarial opposing counsel that we were up against was a large Florida firm with a staff of over 300 attorneys. Regardless of their size, having vast access to sources and top of the cream attorneys in this area of law, filing countless counterclaims and innumerable attempts to block our subpoenas in the end all proved ineffective for them. The success of my case is directly attributed to Robert’s brilliant tactical abilities, possessing an encyclopedic legal mind which is most effectively used in front of a judge and to generate air tight filings, a tenacious demeanor all of which were demonstrated and consistently implemented throughout my case. For all the stress most legal challenges pose having representation that excels and defeats a large and reputable firm speaks volumes in my experience. As a result, I would highly recommend Robert Trinkler to anyone needing significant legal assistance and expertise.
