Successful Journey in Allegan County
I was very satisfied by the outstanding service received from Robert Baker and Associates. Especially Steve Vargo, who did all the grunt work to figure everything out for me from the Prosecutor meetings; in which turned out to great advise.. The office staff was very nice and professional. It was a success story when the final bell range, The retainer of $2500 was well spent.

Child support
I didn’t think that my child support could be extended. Even though I was entitled to it. And Calhoun country completely did my first order incorrectly and did not want to help me with it. After talking with Marisa and telling her what happened. She calmed me down and let me know that they would help me. I was ever so grateful. And they got it done so quickly I couldn’t believe it!! I was overjoyed. This is the best firm!!! I recommend them, you won’t be disappointed. Words can not express how kind, professional, & efficient they are!!!

Attorney Mr.Robert Baker is a great man, very forward person he goes above and beyond to do his job and he does it very well.He works really well with his clients keeping them posted every steps of the way as you are going through all the motions of your Divorce.Many people think they know everything they are facing when it comes to walking into the court room and you got it all worked out between you and your partner and you trust it's going to be fine.Well I'm telling you hiring Mr.Baker was the best thing I every could have done he pointed out so many things to me that I didnt realizes I was intilted to. Mr.Baker is a very motivated Gentleman your never left in the dark with what is going on with your case. His office staff are great people they have been a great support team to me in so many ways.You need not to go out of Allegan to find a great Attorney give Mr.Bakers a call and he will take great care of you.

Review and legal advise on written documents
Exceptional service, responses to legal questions were clear and precise and communicated though multiple media channels, which expedited the legal paperwork. The availability of multiple office locations provided quicker access to my attorney. The professional manner and curtsy in which you are treated, by Attorney Baker and his office staff ,during a highly stressful time was outstanding. Thank you , for helping move forward with my life

Attorney Services
Overall I was satisfied with the service I received from Robert Baker and Associates. Steve Vargo did most of the legal work and I believe he did a good job figuring things out, and gave me good advise.. The office staff was very helpful. The only confusion was the final bill. I paid the lump sum of $2500 when I first hired their office. I understand how that got spent. I paid another bill of $137, I was told I may owe more, for February Services; but I have never seen another bill. I am hoping I am paid in full, but I'm not sure. That is my only concern.
