Best Attorney in town!!!
Mr. Robert York is highly skilled and extremely knowledgably when it comes to family law. I have dealt with several other attorneys in town and I must stay Mr. York is by far the best person for challenging situations when it comes to family law. He has an awesome presence in the courtroom, and he is just a likable person. He is very quick to solve problems when presented with difficult situations. His whole team is amazing. He is a true professional and outstanding attorney. He and his team make every effort to update you on your case or to check in on you. My situation was a very complicated case and Mr. York stood by me 100 percent, because he cares about his clients. There are no words to say how grateful I am for his knowledge and talent in the courtroom. I strongly recommend Mr. York and I believe he is the best attorney in Navarro County!

Exceptionally polished and polite
We have retained lawyers for many reasons over the past twenty years, and never have we been treated more respectfully than with Robert York and his staff (Bryn is the best). His professionalism is beyond any we have used before. He listens and helps you direct your course with kindness and knowledge. We had battled for more than a decade with family matters using a different attorney, and had gotten lost in the legal system. Robert was straight forward and didn't waste our time (or our money) in getting us through the courts and hearings and on to a successful outcome. He has a keen insight into law and crafts his strategy with an urgency for resolution that is greatly appreciated.

He delivers
I started my divorce thinking I didn't need an attorney, that quickly changed. I did some research and contacted Mr. York. In the initial consultation he was very knowledgeable and very understanding and pointed out some key custody concerns. I hired Mr. York and by the next day he had filed motions with the court to correct these issues. When we got to trial he was prepared and organized. It was his preparedness and knowledge that got me primary custody of my 3 year old. He and his paralegal Bryn are very helpful and get things done right and as promptly as possible.

Great litigator and negotiator
I worked with Robert on a complicated family law case for several years. Robert ultimately positioned the case to negotiate a settlement that got our mutual client virtually everything possible.

Tried the rest? Now try the best :)
I hired Mr. York in March 2016 to have my daughter's father put on supervised visitation after he chose a bad path. His knowledge of the system, is second to none. The care and support I got from Mr. York and his team was immense. Every email I sent him was answered in a timely manner, and he kept me up to date with the latest information. During consultation, he told me exactly what he planned to do with my case and a ball-park estimate of what it should cost. LOOK NO FURTHER. AWESOME LAWYER!

Excellent representation
It has been 10 years since Mr. York represented me in the successful case to gain custody of my son. After being in and out of court in multiple venues for 8 years, my ex made the mistake of moving to Corsicana and continuing to violate court orders. By shear luck I found Robert. He was informed, courteous, and steadfast in the goal of not just helping me, but keeping me on the right track to act in the best interests of my child. It took years of undoing the previous damage to my son after I got custody. He is now a fine young man serving his country as a Marine. I am not sure how life would be if I had not met Mr, York. Thank you Robert. Scott M.

An awesome attorney
Robert is an extremely knowledgeable and highly skilled attorney. He handles changing, difficult, and when necessary, unfavorable situations, calmly and confidently. Robert is very professional, detailed, diligent, and clearly cares about his client. I could not imagine an attorney that could be better at what he does. We appreciate all he did for us. We would strongly recommend Robert to anyone in need of an attorney.

He Believed In Us
My husband & I hired Mr. York in October 2012 to represent us (grandparents) in a complex child custody case. We are ever so grateful for his guidance, attention, honesty, & fortitude during the long 24 month journey to a verdict allowing our grandson to remain with us! His professionalism never waivered, in or out of court. He was always quick to respond to my numerous emails; sometimes with nothing other than a much needed pat on the back but often with advise on how to handle a sticky situation. I never felt I was "out of the loop" at all as I was always kept well informed & thoroughly included in every step of the process. Mr. York was always more than willing to explain legal matters so that I truly understood. My only regret is that we spent over 2 years consulting with approximately a dozen other attorneys, hiring & leaving 4 of them before discovering Mr. York. Our confidence that he believed in us & believed in our goal as being in the best interest of the child helped to gird us during a very difficult & emotional time. The quality of service Mr. York provides is greatly complimented by his staff who are always quick & courteous to help in any way possible.

Perfection at its best!!
Robert York is a tremendously talented family law attorney with a knowledge base that is not limited to divorce or child custody issues, but expands to include expertise in a variety of areas of legal matters. He was very responsive to me with regard to all of my urgent matters. He and his courteous staff, ensured that I was treated fairly every step of the way. I felt that they actually cared for me as a person and not just a client. One of the many things that I respect him for is his honesty and that he sets clear expectations. He not only helped me to secure a very favorable outcome in my proceedings, but spent more than one occasion on the phone with me when I needed guidance. I’m happy to say that as a lawyer, he suited my needs extremely well. I’m even more pleased to say that throughout the entire ordeal, I felt like I’d not only secured an exceptional attorney, but added a loyal friend. I have personally been a client with him for many years, and I would recommend this firm to anyone looking for a divorce attorney or help with family matters. He gave me and my family our lives back. He will always be forever in our minds, our lives, our prayers, and most importantly our hearts. May God bless him and his family forever!
