I hired an attorney whom I met through free legal, she worked with Mr. Eckard for a period of time. When she left I was given the option to go with her, however Mr. Eckard has decided to keep my money. I am an elderly disabled single woman and it took me a year to save that money and now I am homeless because I cannot get the legal help I need.

Our corporation hired Robert Eckard Law Firm for a relatively complex corporate lawsuit that was quite detailed. His law firm was highly proactive and educational throughout all steps of the process, offering us different options and explained the pros and cons of the multiple options we had available to us at each point in time. Our business relationship lasted for about 25 months and I intend to utilize his law firm any time our company or other organizations need assistance. Not only did they represent us in regards to a multi-million dollar corporate lawsuit, they have drawn up contracts for use both domestically and internationally along with a few other normal business operational contracts and issues.
They always had enough staff to handle all the highly time sensitive issues with immediate and highly accurate responses, on multiple occasions. Most of all, I really appreciated their proactivity regarding all known and unknown issues that rose and may have risen; they always seemed to have a plan behind every move, question or step they took.
They have represented our corporation in litigation, represented myself personally and consulted in many areas. All lawsuits were settled prior to the cases being tried, all in our favor by far. Much much better than almost anyone would have expected. Highly exceeded our expectations in multiple ways, especially the outcomes of the multiple lawsuits.
I highly recommend their Law Firm based on multiple firsthand experiences with Rob and his great staff. A special thanks to Rob, Joelle, Tim and Erin.

First impressions count for a lot, so, too, do final ones. I would like to place before you the name of my long-time friend and personal counsel - Robert Eckard. When you come to the realization that you must hire an attorney to represent, advise, guide, and defend you, Robert Eckard should be on your speed dial. The selection of your legal representative will determine your future’s outcome. He and his associates are well qualified to assume your legal responsibilities. His credentials are impressive and just as important as his dynamic personality. He has a tactful way of dealing with friends and foes and brings impressive results to the table. I assure you he is creative, deeply conscientious, professional and hard working.
