Divorce is tough...Rob Hurley made it much easier. Incredible knowledge base of law which was very useful and his delivery of information was polite and non-threatening. I was pleased with his ability to inform me of unfamiliar information and processes. Further, he took the time to explain how they could potentially impact me.
I felt confident, protected, and well represented. When in a divorce, these feelings are critical to make the experience as successful as possible.

Mr. Hurley is very knowledgeable about Family Law. He always provided me with thoughtful, sagacious advice. He is also a consummate professional; my phone calls and emails were replied the same day. Mr. Hurley never overcharged me for his services and always tried to save me money. I would highly recommend him.

I approached Robert Hurley for help with a difficult ex and a difficult opposing attorney. He was up for the challenge. Robert Hurley was polite and sympathetic with my case. Unfortunately, he did not demonstrate the creativity, energy, and stamina it took to deal with my case and the aggressive opposing party. Instead of advocating for me and the best interest of my child, Robert Hurley would frequently become flustered and ask me to agree to virtually all unreasonable demands in order to avoid further conflict. He lost his temper and he lost my case. The Agreement he wrote and worded in a way that was supposed to save me further litigation, ended up leading to confusion around ambiguously worded visitation time and over two years of no financial contribution from my ex. It feels as if I paid my attorney to defend the interest of my ex. Over two years and tens of thousands of dollars for further litigation, I still cannot correct Mr. Hurley's errors and damage he made to my case. I would not recommend this attorney to anyone who needs help and protection against a manipulative ex represented by an aggressive attorney.
