Best experience!
In the midst of a very long estate settlement among siblings, Robert was a honest, respectable and highly knowledgeable guide. He was actually hired in the middle of my probate after the first attorney failed to present my case accurately. Robert accepted my complex case and from day one his compassionate straight to the point attitude was exactly what we needed. His knowledge of estate law and execution is hands down superb. I won the case fairly and justly. I highly recommend!!

Very Helpful and Efficient!
Mr Essick has helped me with several issues over the past couple years. He is always quick to follow up and update me on the status of things. I've recommended him to several friends and they have had nothing but good things to say about him and his firm.

Outstanding person and fantastic lawyer
I've heard alot of negative things about lawyers but this lawyer is the polar opposite of everything I've ever heard. He handled a messy probate issue and even though the judge didn't find in our favor it was thru no fault of Mr. Essick's. He explained things in laymans terms and was more than fair with the costs at the closure of the case. If you want a fair lawyer with integrity he's your man.

"Robert is a very experienced attorney who is well-known and well-respected in this field. As a fellow probate attorney, I highly value his opinion and insights on issues our clients face. In the past, when I have not been able to take on a case, I gladly referred the client to Robert with complete confidence that the client would be in good hands. Additionally, Robert freely gives of his time to help educate the public and mentor newer attorneys on a regular basis."
