About Robert

Learn Robert’s areas of practice.

Representing Adoptive Parents in Alabama and West Virginina, Robert Noone has been an adoption lawyer and advocate for abused and neglected children for over 30 years. He uses that same care and concern to insure that foster parents seeking to adopt receive the best available representation.  


Although welcoming a new member into your family is an exciting time, you probably feel like you've waited long enough. Robert Noone helps expedite matters with the prompt processing of your case, bringing his decades of experience of working with adoptions and child law to make the expansion of your family a reality. Adoptions can often be emotional and confusing requiring compassion and skill in your legal journey. We take the time to make sure you understand your rights and meet with agencies, guardians and parents to insure a smooth adoption.


Our office also regularly represents stepparents, grandparents, single parents and others who have had children placed with them by another family member or Child Protective Services for an extended period of time, helping transform that temporary arrangement into a real FAMILY.


Recognizing the generosity you have in opening your home up to a child who often has no one else, Bob NEVER charges any prospective adoptive parent for a consultation. AL: and  WV:

Adoption of my first daughter, Chelsea, and then my next two, Savannah and Maddie
I first got to know Mr. Noone at the recommendation of Necco of Logan Foster Care Agency when we were attempting to adopt our first daughter. He was a very caring person and made sure we understood everything that was going to happen. He helped us every step of the way, and we got the best result possible!! When the time came that we were able to adopt our other daughters, there was no other attorney we considered. Mr. Noone is an Excellent attorney and it is Very Obvious that he truly cares about every family that he represents.

Exceeded Expectations
When I called Bob on a recommendation from a friend to ask him questions about a possible adoption, he spoke with me on the phone for 30 minutes explaining the ins and outs of the process. I never got the sense he was in a hurry to get off the phone with me and he did this without any assurance that I would be using his services. I called him back a few weeks later and set up a face to face appointment with him for my wife and I. He spent 45 minutes with us in his office going over all the details and was up front about his fees and compensation. We contracted with him and throughout the entire 5 month process he was available to us whenever we needed him always keeping us up to date through phone calls and emails of what to expect. Our child was born and on the morning we were to take him home from the hospital he was at the hospital to make sure everything was signed correctly and there were no legal issues. 3 months later we finalized the adoption in court and Bob was there holding our hand through the whole thing. When it was over he celebrated with us and took pictures. I would recommend anyone hire Bob Noone. He's professional, caring, and succinct and we had a great experience with him.

Robert Noone is the best adoption Attorney
I called and requested adoption services and it took a while to get the paper work ready before he could do his part, how ever when that day came he filed the paper work quickly and we added permanency for another family member. Very easy to work with and helpful.

Words Cannot Express What Mr. Noone Means To Us
I can't even begin to tell you what Mr. Noone means to me and my wife. When we first approached him with our special situation concerning our son, he smiled at us and told us we were crazy, but if we were willing to try that he was going to stick right there with us. Through months and months of prayer and 2am conversations via text message, Mr. Noone stuck by our side and in February of 2015, we got to change the last name of our little boy and he became ours forever. Bob is an amazing lawyer, only to be outdone by how amazing a man he is. I no longer look at Mr. Noone as my legal representation, I look at him as my friend. You will not be disappointed with your choice to have him represent you during your adoption, I can personally promise that.

"I met Robert several years ago when I clerked for a judge in southern West Virginia. I observed many adoption attorneys come through the judicial system over the two years I worked in the courts and Robert is hands down the best adoption attorney I have seen. He is always well prepared and will put a smile on your face any day of the week."
