Persistent lawyer who takes his client's injuries, opinions, and time serious.
Robert was awesome! My car got hit by a corporate pizza company's uninsured driver on the way to my job and a co-worker recommend calling Robert Butwinick. He meet with me in a timely matter and laid out actionable steps that we could take to win our case. During downtime I did feel like I wasn't a priority when my emails weren't being replayed to by his office, but this was my first time suing anything let alone a corporation so my expectations may have been a little too high when it came to the total duration of the legal dispute. In the end he was able to overcome challenges that arrived at every step of the way there and deliver on his promise. What I admired most about Bob was his persistence and know-how to just get things don! At one point I was mistreated by the insurance companies evaluation doctor and after telling Bob that I felt rushed and intentionally misinformed by the doctor he stood up for me. Bob showed me he took his client's injuries, opinions, and time serious.

There motto is the Action Lawyers, and they sure lived up to what they preach! I strongly recommend Mr. Butwinick to handle your case!
