Very respectful and honest
I should admit that I only consulted with Mr. Marble but his demeanor and candidness struck me. I've spoken to several attorneys about my case but he felt genuine. So i thought I'd leave a good review to show my appreciation. Thank you.

Great Attorney
Mr Marble handled my divorce. Since it was during the pandemic, all of the dealings were by phone, email and a few by Zoom. He was fast at gathering details and moving ahead my case. Any questions I had were answered promptly and I never had to wait more than the next day. His follow up is excellent. Highly recommend him.

Robert Marble returned my call promptly and gave me excellent advice on a difficult and drawn-out legal issue , directing me to the right person to handle my case. I would recommend him to anyone who needs an attorney, and I would hire him for any future legal work. I was greatly impressed with how smart and helpful he was.

Collaborative Divorce
If you are looking for strong and fair representation from a knowledgeable Sarasota attorney who can settle, mediate, or take a case to trial, Rob Marble is an excellent choice. Rob was able to guide me through the divorce process from filing to final settlement. Rob represented me in mediation and later in a collaborative divorce agreement. We were able to settle fairly and amicably without a trial, thanks to Rob.

Great Attorney for Divorce Case
Rob handled my case very thoroughly and professionally. I highly recommend him as he made it very easy for not only myself and children but my ex as well. The process was simple thanks to Rob and all he did to work with me. He went above and beyond understanding my hectic schedule as we had a lot of phone appointments and email conversations.

Highly Recommend
Mr. Marble is an excellent attorney. I would strongly recommend you enlist his services for any of your legal needs. He is thorough, knowledgeable, fair, and extremely good at what he does. I retained him after the fact, and definitely wish I had hired him on day one. I can't thank him enough for his help.

Highly competent and easy to work with!
I hired Mr. Marble to handle what I assumed was a straight-forward divorce and am extremely glad I did. Although there were times he disagreed with my view points, he was very thorough and diligent in pointing out potential problems I was making and ensuring that I did not make any bad decisions. Regarding fees, I found his billing to be fair and reasonable and while I'm sure it's possible to find an attorney who may do the job for less, as with everything else in life, you get what you pay for and I believe Rob was worth every dollar.

Need more lawyers like Robert Marble
Robert looked over my case and kept me updated promptly and regularly. I felt like he did his best and never gave me any doubts about hiring him. Lawyers like Mr. Marble are very few and far between. It's just a shame that he moved out of Washington and I am now in need of another lawyer.

Outstanding Attorney! Highly Recommend!

Excellent Lawyer - He will exceed you expectations
Mr. Marble represented me in a very contentious divorce case, a case where we actually had to go to trial for not one day, but two days. There was a petition by my ex-wife to relocate out of state with the children in the mix also. The long and short of it was that the representation I received from Mr. Marble was second to none. You will not get better representation elsewhere. He will go over all the details of the case, make sure all issues are covered, and hopefully prevail like we did in my case. There are so many issues in play in a divorce case - alimony, the property settlement, and potentially child support. I did not and would not take the chance with these issues in court. He is by far the best attorney I dealt with (and in my case, I actually fired my previous attorney). Now the best part. He is affordable and he will not push your case off on an unexperienced lawyer. And most importantly, HE WILL ANSWER YOUR PHONE CALL. HE WILL TALK TO YOU. I would give him six stars if I could, but I guess 5 stars will suffice. My expectations were exceeded so much. I owe him a huge debt of gratitude for doing an excellent job for me.

Family Law
Mr. Marble handled a family law matter for me and has been a trusted advisor through this most difficult time. His handling of complex financial business ownership issues as well as his positive attitude helped me get a very fair settlement, and his professionalism, attention to the details and extremely good communications skills gave me great comfort that I could survive and move forward.

We were informed and the outcome was satisfactory. I don't have other experiences for comparison.

Review for Robert Marble
Mr. Marble was extremely helpful in representing my son and I in a landlord/tenant dispute. The dispute involved my son living in a building that had mold and posed an unsafe and unhealthy living environment. Mr. Marble was very knowledgeable and advised me as to the best course of action. I found him to be trustworthy, timely, and very professional.
