Highly Recommended!
I highly recommend Bob. Our company used him over the last year and we are glad we did. He is a very professional and knowledgeable lawyer and has been very successful in dealing with our matters. Bob devotes enough time for his clients and has very good people skills. He is always on top of our matters and communicates often letting us know our options and how strong our case is. We send our collection and bankruptcy matters to Bob because we know he will be diligent and resolve the matter in the best way possible for our company.

Outstanding bankruptcy attorney
I'm a Colorado attorney who called Robert DeMarco regarding a client who needs to file bankruptcy in Texas. Bob is, without question, the most knowledgeable bankruptcy attorney I've ever spoken to. He answered all of my questions in a way that was very clear and easy to understand. He was very creative in his thinking, and it was obvious that he was doing all he could to come up with a way to help the client. Also, the price that he talked about was very reasonable, especially in light of the amount of work that I know this case will involve. Very sharp and honest attorney.

Hard working and knowledgeable
I highly recommend Mr. Demarco. He took our families case and worked hard for us. We had a very unique and difficult situation. The knowledge and work ethic Mr. Demarco put into our bankruptcy was amazing. He’s very easy to work with, personable and helped me every step of the way. He made a sad and hard situation doable.

A passionate attorney that really wants to help in uncomfortable situations
My situation was very difficult. When I walked in I was more stressed out and afraid than I had ever been in my life. Bob sat me down and we worked it all out. I am very thankful for what he did for my company and to save the livelihood of my employees.

Great job defending my creditors rights on a bankruptcy case !
Mr. DeMarco was referred to me by one of his colleagues. I live in another state and was highly concerned about getting reliable representation without me living in the area. I needed a lawyer with expertise in bankruptcy, as I was a large creditor fighting a complicated bankruptcy case. As soon as I met Mr. DeMarco it was apparent he was very knowledgeable about all areas of bankruptcy and had great strategies on how to handle my case. He's upfront and easy to talk to. In court he truly set himself apart with his persuasive skills in front of the judge. As a result, my case had a favorable outcome. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mr. DeMarco. Great lawyer and man of integrity.

Honest up front lawyer!
I went to him for advice regarding a small claims lawsuit. He answered all of my questions and encouraged me to try to settle with the company suing me myself. He told me what to say and everything. Told me to keep the money I would have paid him and rather negotiate myself. I was considering filing bankruptcy and after reviewing my situation he told me that wasn't best for me (even though he obviously stood to make money if I did). My situation worked out fortunately. And I found out that not all lawyers are ruthless. Some of them actually care about the client and Robert DeMarco is one of them!
