The only attorney you will need
There are literally over 100 attorneys within 15 minutes of my house and I have used a few of them in the past. I passed on all of them and on someone else’s recommendation, I drove over an hour to have Robert L Root III handle my case. Robert will get you the results you want without dragging it out to collect extra fees. He is honest, listens to you and gets right to work.I am very happy I found Robert Root III and he will be my attorney moving forward. Call him, trust him , you will be glad you did.

Amazing and Great Lawyer
Hired Robert Root to handle my divorce case and I am glad with my decision to hire him. He made sure that my divorce case would end in shorter period of time and made sure I won't lose too much in this divorce case. He was straightforward with me and gave his honest advice. I am really thankful that he was able to help me through the divorce and got my life back on track. His office staffs are really helpful as well. You won't regret to hire him because he would put your interest first and fight for your case.

Root Rules!
Attorney Root helped me maintain custody of my son in a very difficult situation. Should I need an attorney in the future, I will most definitely seek Root's Law Office. I am extremely grateful for his caring counsel.

Confident and caring.
I hired Attorney Root for a legal problem in a small town. I was worried that I was not going to be treated fairly because I was not a local of that town. Attorney Root assured me that he was familiar with the problem and knew how to handle it. He and his staff were understanding and answered my questions during the process and were always professional. I have no personal experience in the judicial system. He appeared in court with me and explained the process. He made sure that my rights were protected. He took care of my worries and I feel that I was treated fairly.

GREAT experience and GREAT results!!!
We hired attny Root for a child custody case and he did not disappoint. Aside from winning the case during the entire process of the many court dates attny Root kept us informed of the process and answered all of our many questions. He was down to earth but professional. Should I need any legal advise or counsel in the future I will definitely go back or recommend him to any family or friends!

Upfront, Direct, Effective
I don't often take the time to write reviews, but felt compelled to make an exception for Mr. Root. When one files for divorce there are many questions to be answered, and so very many things to consider. Even before my initial consult I had compiled a list of all I could think of to ask, it was lengthy to say the least. Mr. Root gave me is full and undivided attention while I worked my way from top to bottom on my yellow legal pad sitting in his office. He was very clear, direct, and thorough when answering my questions, and addressing my concerns. Then he proceeded to address things I had not even considered. I didn't realize just how much I didn't know about the separating of a long marrige. There was never a moment when I felt rushed, and I left the consult feeling informed, prepared, and more at ease about the entire process. I retained Mr. Root based on this experience. This was a wise decision my part. Mr.Root listenef to me, directed me, and looked out for my interests throughout the entirety of the divorce process. He made himself available for my questions, responded to calls and messages in a very timely manner, and never left me feeling as if I was alone at any point from start to finish. I highly recommend Mr. Root to my friends and family. Possibly the best customer service I have ever had across any industry. Thank you Bobby for all you did to ensure I had the most favorable outcome possible.

Amazing Lawyer
He is currently handling my divorce and custody battle. My ex is causing other problems while this is going on and he has always been there to answer any of my questions and keeps informed on everything going on. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for someone who is very informed on what he is doing and to fight for what you need or want!

An Official Apology and amendment to previous reviews
I would like to officially apologize to Attorney Robert Root III. I am hot headed sometimes and jump the gun before I give the person a chance. Which I did in this case. I think Mr. Root should be heard in person and be able to review the case before a snap judgement is made. Mr. Root heard me out and is taking my case seriously even though it is a frivolous charge. I want to amend my previous review with an official apology. And I would recommend him to anyone for whatever your needs he is worth the effort to check him out and hear him out and to follow his advice. He is a stand up guy and even though I was initially upset with things he did listen and is still fighting for me you cannot find a better attorney than that. My official apologies Attorney Robert L Root III and win or lose Thank you for taking my concerns and wishes into consideration and being a stand up person and for dealing with my temper. My apologies for that as well.
