Wonderful Attorney. Look No Further Than Mr. Robert Levi !
I highly recommend Robert L Levi. Mr. Levi is sympathetic, understanding and knowledgeable when he decided to take my criminal appeal case. He is highly professional and informative from the beginning to the end. He is always well prepared for the case. After research and investigation, he changed the impossible to possible-- I got a very good result. I am very impressed with Mr. Levi's work. I definitely recommend him to anyone.

Great Communication, Responsiveness, Value, and Overall Quality of Legal Services
A couple of years ago, I found myself in a difficult employment-related situation, and needed legal advice. Knowing how important it was to have someone very competent, responsive, and personable, I started doing my homework. I researched the Internet, called and talked with tens of law firms and attorneys, read hundreds of reviews, and asked my network of friends and colleagues for referrals. At the end of this thorough search, I selected Mr. Robert L. Levi. During the approximately 18 months of collaboration that followed, I never regretted my choice. In my opinion, Robert has the experience (over 30 years of work in the legal field), legal knowledge, and skills to help you with your case related to employment, labor relations, civil rights, or employee benefits. He also provides the personal attention to set your mind at ease and relieve (at the extent possible), the emotional, intellectual, and financial stress of legal work placed on your personal and professional life. Deciding to sue someone is a scary thing. Mr. Levi helped me determine if taking legal action was appropriate for me; evaluated (and re-evaluated) the possible length and implications of the case; was very fair in the payment arrangement up front (no “surprises”); kept me informed right away of new developments; consulted with me on a regular basis; and answered my questions fully, every time I asked. He was realistic, truthful, diligent and ethical throughout the process. During our collaboration on my case, he would send me regular updates, along with legal briefs of similar cases and respective rulings – in the eventuality I was interested to read (which I was, because it gave me context for my situation). When it was time to settle, we worked closely together to develop a strategy and accurately assess the compensation to which I was entitled. Mr. Levi was compassionate, highly responsive, courteous, and kept his cool during some stressful interactions – all while subjecting our opponents to the full force his legal prowess. What I liked the most about our collaboration, however, is that he treated me and my husband like family. Robert worked with me directly, rather than assigning parts of my case to less experienced or prepared collaborators. This assured stability and constant expertise for my case, in addition to giving me peace of mind that my legal misfortunes are in very good hands. But since success is often defined by outcomes, I am happy to state that optimal results were achieved in my situation, proving Robert Levi is accountable, as well. For all these, I highly recommend Mr. Robert L. Levi.
