Best Attorney in Lake County, IL
Thank goodness I finally found an attorney that represented me with integrity and helped me through this long nightmare of a divorce. Robert was very responsive from the beginning, answered every communication, kept my case on track, and gave me counsel that finally gave me some relief. Robert came in late in the case to wrap up the final stages, and he got more accomplished in one action than was done in 2 years of constant attacks. I wish I had started my divorce process with him.

Nice and dilligent family-law attorney
Robert Stavins is very competent and effective attorney in family law. I must admit to be a lawyer-phobic so when my exwife filed a law suit to get me pay half of my sons University of Michigan tuition when he could have studied Loyola University Chicago or Marquette University for free thanks to my employee benefits, I first attempted to represent myself. When a judge strongly suggested I needed a lawyer, and some awful forms were due in Waukegan court soon, I quickly choose Robert based on two facts: first, he worked pro bono from time to time (not that I would need that but it shows his kind heart so I felt he would understand that I cannot afford excessive fees), and, second, he did not remind me during our first meeting a vulture (unlike most other attorneys I observed working in the courtroom). I was so lucky with my selection! The complicated case morphed into child support case for another child and took a year and many petitions and counter-petitions to complete. Robert was always there - calm, knowledgeable, explaining my options clearly. We did not win it all but my new family and I would be probably financially ruined without his assistance.

Great lawyer
I met with Mr Stavins in Sept 2016 after being denied for disability, he was very straight forward with me about the difficulty with my case but was willing to fight with me. He was great about keeping in touch and what steps we were taking next. I would definitly hire him any time for anything.

Complicated Divorce
Mr. Stavins did a tremendous job in a complicated and acrimonious situation. He made sure I was financially covered in both in the present as well as the future. Great job!

I cannot begin to express all the TERIFFIC work Mr. Stavins has put forth for my court cases. I couldn't have found a more passionate, respectable, humble, and loving lawyer to represent me. He answers every single call I place. Every email I send is responded too punctually. He has kept me up to date with my case, I am never left in question. He takes pride in his work and is very respected by judges/ other lawyers. I would recommend him time and time again!!!

A very intelligent lawyer
He was very kind,patient,intelligent and dedicated. He put my mind at rest,kept me updated about my divorce case.There are very few lawyers out there that actually have a heart, he does . He genuinely had my best interest at heart and fought for me till the very victorious end. He is indeed a very good and smart lawyer.

If you let him do what he wants, he is fine. But don't ask for what YOU want.
Most basic lawyer. But if you want a lawyer to fight, he is not the one. The communication was lacking. I was told at one point "you should think about self representation". This because I asked him to have stuff included within the final divorce. But he wanted it his way or else find someone else. "I work for you" doesnt really apply here. Then, I tried to follow up AFTER the case was closed so I would not need another lawyer, completely ignored be on 3 separate requests. So he was done with me without telling me. Forwarded me emails from the other party with not a single word of context or what Im supposed to do. "Review and get back to me". Yes, I probably could have self represented. And should have. Win some, lose some.
