I hired Bonnie after she was a Rockstar in defending my sister in family Court. At the beginning my ex gave the run around every chance he got. Bonnie was very patient and at every turn was ready to fight hard for the best interest of our 3 children for the custody case. She was ever ready to give her recommendations, listen to what I wanted and would then consult on what the best course of action would be. From filing to final hearing it went just over a year. She was always easy to reach, she's extremely knowledgeable.
She led us down a very good path where my ex husbands and I came to an agreement together that we are both very happy with, our children are happy with and something I never thought could happen did...it ended on such good terms my ex husbands and I are now friends.
I have recommended her to countless friends and will continue to. I have used other lawyers prior to Bonnie but needed a lawyer that was willing to be very upfront, knowledgeable and rigorous to fight for me. She far exceeded my expectations and that wasn't easy based on the recommendations I got for her prior to hire.
The firm is a pleasure to work with and the staff is wonderful.

To set the stage, I hired Mrs Robertson to litigate my divorce in March of 2012 after dismissing my previous attorney. My divorce / custody case had become severe in that my three children with my ex wife were experiencing extreme parental alienation. It was heartbreaking to watch this situation to unfold.This alienation had resulted in a police investigation and 3 DHS hotline calls from the other party based on outlandish and false allegations, subsequently 2 of the hotline calls resulted in the DHS recommending that I be placed on a child maltreatment list. These hotline calls took place between July 2011 and June 2012. The children's mother kept using the DHS / CPS as a weapon to prevent me from having any contact with my children and it worked for a while. She accomplished this by keeping a protection order on me as long as these DHS cases were pending.
Soon I found myself engaging Mrs Robertson to not only litigate my divorce and custody case but also 2 DHS appeals. Instead of getting better, the pressure began to mount in my case as Mrs. Robertson fought hard on each appeal while at the same time fighting very hard in the divorce / custody case. Due to her professional and tenacious method of litigating my DHS appeals, she was able to extract very important facts from the other party which proved that the entire DHS case was built on lies and deceit for the express purpose of alienating my children from me. Thanks to Mrs. Robertson's hard work and keen expertise in dealing with the agency, both DHS appeals were successfully overturned.
My custody case continued beyond the final divorce proceedings and was far from over. Mrs Robertson had fought for psychological evaluations on the parties and our three children. Our request for evaluations was granted in spite of a tremendous fight from my ex wife and her uncooperative attorney waged to prevent it. However, after the ruling was handed down in the summer of 2012, my ex wife refused to submit to said evaluations. My ex wife's refusal to submit resulted in two hearings to force her to cooperate with these evaluations. The judge in my case was soft on placing too much pressure on the other party to submit possibly due to an ongoing DHS appeal on the 3rd hotline call. This Second and final appeal was successfully litigated by Mrs Robertson in the Spring of 2013. Finally in Sept. 2013, Mrs Robertson was successful in convincing the judge to force my ex wife to cooperate. These psychological evaluations were not completed until almost a year later due to further stalling and obfuscation by my ex wife which tested the tenacity and endurance of both myself and Mrs Robertson. Additionally, Mrs. Robertson was also successful in convincing the court to lift my three year "temporary" protection order!
Finally, after three years, and in spite of seemingly insurmountable and impossible odds, Mrs Robertson has been successful in bringing a conclusion to the case as Im finally able to enjoy visitations with my youngest daughter. I would like to say that In my view, there is no attorney in the State of Arkansas that is more capable than Bonnie Robertson to litigate even the worst divorce / custody case, and quite frankly, I don't think there is a case worse than mine. Mrs Robertson is loyal, energetic, inciteful, tenacious, and professional. She also has an innate sense of the needs of children, and additionally, she supports father's rights. She is a highly principled attorney, but she knows how to fight hard and she is very shrewd in the court room. Scarce have I seen a person with her ability to store large volumes of information and recall the information so quickly and at will in the courtroom. Seldom do I leave the highest ratings in a review but I will make an exception here, and Mrs. Robertson deserves such a review.
