Excellent!
I was so impressed with the services I received from Bob. He is so knowledgeable and I learned so much from him during the process of estate planning. I went from worrying about everything to being able to sleep at night! He leaves nothing unaddressed and follows up on everything.

A fantastic lawyer
I am a former commercial lawyer and was referred to Bob Mondo to handle my estate planning in August 2019. In 2021, he incorporated my new therapy business. Bob is an excellent, client-centered lawyer. He knows what he is doing, explained everything, patiently answered all of my questions, put matters and instructions in writing as needed, and is a genial and kind human being as well! Bob is reasonably priced and he has willingly answered follow-up questions I have had on these two matters for the past three years without charge! I cannot recommended Bob highly enough. He is the best.

Estate Planning
My wife and I have been putting off Estate Planning for years for several reasons. After asking friends for referrals we chose Bob and couldn't be happier. He put all our fears to rest and explained(what we thought was going to be a long tedious process) in simple terms. He was professional and made us feel comfortable asking questions(even the dumb ones)? We highly recommend Bob for your estate planning. Don't put it off until it's too late.

Estate Planning made easy
We thought that creating a trust would be an enormous amount of work so we had discussed it and put it off for years. So relieved that we found Robert and it is done...with professional expertise and a reasonable (not overwhelming) amount of work on our part, we have a family trust!

Brilliant
Bob met with my father and I and did a brilliant job drawing up our personal trusts. What I thought was going to be scary, was awesome. He walked the two of us through the process, answered questions, and made us feel at ease with the process. Each of us now have binders with detailed trust plans. He’s absolutely brilliant!!!

Great experience and knowledge!
I was looking for someone to assist with a family trust, but what I got was so much more! First thing he did was make me really understand the process and what a trust vs a will is. He was easy to talk to and made me feel that someone other than me is looking out for my family! He also is now the family attorney. That's a good feeling. If he can't handle something, he has other attorneys in his arsenal. I would recommend meeting with him!

Bob Mondo was recommended to us for inquiring information for a family trust. Bob did a great job to make sure we understood the trust completely. Bob never made us feel rushed and encouraged questions/feedback on what he told us about a family trust. We made the decision to use Bob's services. The entire process went entirely smooth and final trust was completed quickly. We highly recommend Bob Mondo.

Bob is the best for estate planning
You won't find anyone more thorough than Bob Mondo. It's not "cookie cutter" estate planning, he takes the time to really get to know you and then puts together an amazingly comprehensive plan. We can rest easy that our family is well taken care of.

Excellent experience
Bob came recommended to me and I was not disappointed. He did Estate planning for me and explained everything so thoroughly and understandably that I felt informed and confident in the process. I have already recommended him to friends that are considering Estate Planning.

Family Estate Plan
First off I never write reviews. My typing skills are remedial. But the the experience I had with Bob handling the creating of our family trust was so deserving, that I had to sit down and write this. Bob made the process easy to understand in the way he explained it. The documents are detailed and concise but written in the same easy to understand manner by someone who really understands his field of expertise far and above most lawyers. We are very fortunate to have found him, and the peace of mind that having this trust set up for us is compelling. So if you are looking for a true professional in this field and a man with a friendly helpful personality I would highly recommend Mr. Robert Mondo.

Estate plan
Bob Mondo was referred to me by my financial planner. I used his services some time ago to set up an estate plan. I found him to be very professional, personable and knowledgeable. He made me feel at ease with a weighty but very necessary task.

We had a will made up when our daughters were young and decided to put everything in a trust. Robert sat down with us and explained everything step by step. I really appreciated that because there are so many legal areas we did not understand.Robert put together our trust and I can highly recommend Robert, he will be there for us now and for future questions.

Established our Family Trust
Bob was fantastic and very helpful, explained everything to us and answered all of our questions. Bob accommodated our desire to move forward through the pandemic crisis and provided video and phone consultation through the process. We highly recommend Bob - and best of all, he is an attorney with a great personality and sense of humor.

Great job
Bob did a great job. This was the third trust I was involved with, so I know from experience. The documents I received exceeded my expectations, and he did a great job explaining their contents and purpose.

Knowledgeable and a good communicator
Working with Bob has been great. He came highly recommended to me, and it's clear why. Not only is he knowledgeable and experienced in these areas of the law, but he is an understanding person and a good communicator. Bob summarizes and explains the legalese so that clients understand the whys and wherefores of the process. He was flexible regarding meetings and taking actions to move the process forward. Bob Mondo has my full confidence. He will be the first and only person I call for any legal matters in the future.
