Exactly Who I Needed
I can't say enough about the professionalism and attention to detail exhibited by Rob in the course of my divorce proceedings. I didn't expect such deep listening, such wise counsel, and such respect for my wishes regarding how I wanted things to happen. He was a tireless advocate for the best interests of my children but also gave gentle advice on what was best for me personally. His staff was fantastic, he never missed a deadline when he'd promised to deliver something, he kept me informed with every new development, and he wasn't afraid to negotiate fiercely on my behalf. He was exactly the right attorney at a very difficult time, and I would highly recommend him.

Best Family Lawyer
My child custody case was like an uphill battle, moving kids from not just one county to other but to a different city. It was very tough initially, I lost as I had some other lawyer who claimed to be family lawyer but was more of an injury law. Then I started looking for other lawyers. I spoke with Rob, when I was thinking for pursuing second time for my kids custody. They were in Austin and I was in Dallas. Rob was so patient to listen to my situation and provide a valuable feedback. This was long before I even signed him as my attorney. He told me exactly when I should pursue, the timings and what it may involve. Then after a year of going back and forth between my phone consultations with him and other attorney I hired him as my attorney. Before him I had 2 other attorneys who were so bad in dealing with custody cases. So I was scared. But I believe in miracles and in God, and I thank God for granting me Rob Frazer as my attorney. I come from Pakistan where cultural, family and divorce values are totally different. But Rob had an insight on all the issues. He explains every thing so deeply and at length that he leaves no space or gaps that may remain to be covered. I was his Dallas Client and yet he fought my case in Travis county , the toughest county as that's where my kids resided. He made impossible possible for me. He prepared the case really well. He is always way ahead in his preparations and every day tasks. When he promises, he delivers on time. I believe after God , it was Rob Frazer who helped me get my kids back. As a mother of two girls, and as his former client, I will pray for his success and highly highly recommend him to any one who needs a good family attorney.

Excellent Attorney
Rob was very knowledgable and professional. He was able to save me time and money to resolve my issue regarding a post-nuptial agreement. He worked diligently and understood the situation I was dealing with. If you are looking for a lawyer that can get the job done in a timely manner with compassion and kindness look no further. I would highly recommend Rob Frazer

Rob got me everything I deserved without stress
I was more than happy with the results of my case. Rob did a great job in helping settle my case out of court, getting me the primary custody, all the rights including domicile rights and a reasonable amount of child support that I could ask for. Rob proposed exactly what I requested. The previous attorney I had, would simply argue with me on almost everything I proposed, even though it was reasonable, was being settled out of court and meant for the best interest of my kids. My previous attorney kept favoring the demands of the opposing party even though they were out of the norm such as them trying to restrict me geographically even though my ex lived out of state (3 hour flight). But when I switched to Rob, he listened to my request, understanding that my geographic restriction would not help with my ex's visitation schedule with my kids anyway and would simply make my employment opportunities limited as a result affecting my kids' future. So, Rob was able to get me the domicile rights which meant a lot to me. Zinda and Davis lawfirm's mission is to represent their clients and I found them worth every penny due to this. Rob also gave me good advice, and answered my emails promptly. His availability to discuss my case over the weekend due to my busy schedule was also very helpful. Throughout the process, unlike my previous attorney who stressed me out, Rob was compassionate and understanding making it so comfortable and stress free for me. He also planned a good strategy which helped settle my case timely when it was simply dragging on for months with my previous attorneys. I know Rob got me the best deal as my ex's attorney even wrote "against attorney advice" on the divorce decree next to his signature. I highly recommend Rob Fraser.

Single dad with full custody
Rob was very informative, and tentative to all my concerns. He was extremely professional, dressed sharp and always on time. Definitely a shark in the courtroom. No corner was left unturned. Over one year's time, rob won me full custody with child support after starting with just weekend custody. The best part is that he made decisions that were best for me financially. As a single man in Texas I didn't think I stood a chance for full custody of a young child, but rob assured me there was a strong possibility. Then he got it done. 100% recommend!

Honest, Friendly, Knowledgeable
I consulted with Rob near the beginning of my divorce process, and had him take an overview of all our assets, debts, and what was a somewhat complicated homestead situation. He helped me understand what my rights were and helped me feel calm in proceeding to represent myself. He didn't take me on as a client unnecessarily as he believed everything I asked for was fair, reasonable, and within the law. He let me know he was there for me if I ran into trouble but otherwise my money would best be spent starting my new life. His one-hour consult gave me the confidence I needed to press forward on my own without further attorney fees. The confidence and affirmation I received from our consult played a large part in me coming out of a painful and trying situation with exactly what I wanted and deserved; I was able to confidently play hardball with the ex-husband knowing the law was on my side. He was ethical and gave me the exact amount of help I needed. I highly recommend Rob as a professional.

Why I Loved My Lawyer
Here is what I loved about Rob Frazer: -always was responsive--never waited more than one day for a response. -very ethical -fought for what I wanted, even if that changed from one day to the next -always gave advice based on my interest and not his own
Posted by Dave | March 10, 2014
Very impressive knowledge and skills
Not being a Texas resident, I was in desperate need of representation in Texas. I called a handful of attorneys in the area and the Firm of Zinda & Davis called me back while others never responded. Rob Frazer took on the case and never once gave me feeling of an out-of-stater and a marginal prospect. Rob dove right in to my time sensitive issues and was all over it. I was very impressed with his knowledge and skills. I would not hesitate to recommend Rob and the firm.

A wonderful attorney for child custody matters!
Rob made us feel very comfortable with his compassionate and caring style. We had interviewed other attorneys and felt no connection.....just felt like a number. He was extremely thorough and knowledgable about our legal situation, and gave us confidence that our child would not suffer any more emotional turmoil as we went through the process of changing the custody agreement.

Divorce
I felt very comfortable and confident with Rob. I have never had to hire an attorney, but somehow I was lead to Rob and am grateful. Rob stays on top of your case and keeps you up to date. He provides all the facts and options, so you can make an informed decision. I knew I was in good hands and he keep me focused on my goals and what was in the best interest for my children. Even though I did not want to get divorced, I felt better about my case with Rob as my attorney. He answered all of my questions and was always available when I needed to talk to him. I definitely recommend Rob.

Child support and custody
What a journey, divorce and child custody ( battle) not a fun case. But thanks to Robs attentiveness we made it through. Yes we, he stuck with me all the way keeping me up to date on everything that was happening. Rob doesn't get rattled easy and at first I wondered if we would have the same passion and fire about my case. Please don't confuse his cool head for his lack of concern. Some of my concerns were that my ex's lawyer had been allowed to attack me and yell at me by another lawyer. But I knew that this would not be the case with Rob as my lawyer, there was a weight lifted that I never had to have personal contact with my ex and her lawyer. Most of all my concerns were met and answered all of the way, and I never had to go to court. This may not be the norm but I had two other lawyers that were not able to do this and we're not able to get final orders. But now it's all over. If you are in need of a divorce lawyer who keeps you focused and listens to all your concerns, talk to Rob and you will hear that he has your best interest at heart and your children's. Thank you Rob and Chris for all your help!

Review
Rob was a very knowledgeable attorney, who was very supportive and listens to you. He was always prompt, professional, and willing to help. I value his service and thank him very much for helping my family. He was always trustworthy and honest and I'd use him any time I need legal assistance. He has always "won" my case which has always been the best interest of my children. Thanks Rob- your the best attorney ever!

I May Get Divorced Again Just to Work with Rob
Of course that's a joke, but Rob helped my ex and I through a very difficult time. Throughout he was a very calming and rational voice. He kept both of us informed so that we knew exactly what to expect at every turn. He helped keep what could have been a devastatingly painful event from ever being more than horribly painful.
Posted by Maribel | May 20, 2013
Rob is a true professional.
From start to finish, I knew Rob would have my back and do whatever it took to help me. He has a way in the courtroom that made me feel very confident because I know everyone there likes him and trusts him. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney because he's great to work with and he gets results.

Rob is awesome!
Rob was a great attorney who was very knowledgeable and responsive. He was very timely about getting back to me when I called or emailed and was very thorough in his explanation of my case/the law. He truly made me feel as if I were his most important client every time we spoke and/or met (I assume he was working with other clients as well). He would give me regular updates as they happened, which were very helpful. I would highly recommend Rob to anyone who may be looking for an attorney.

Worst Experience…about as helpful as a glass hammer
Terrible listener, zero production, unneeded headaches, stress, anxiety for someone that was supposed to be an advocate/guide through the process. Never sent documents(sent months prior and resent) requested by opposing counsel which lead to discovery/interrogatories…… leading to more work and more documents for me. Rob and the para-legal were unresponsive and got to the point that that I had to send the documents to my ex to then give to her counsel, to drop the discovery before the needed deadline. I understand that my case was probably not high on the priority list but you took my case and the only thing Rob provides in return was more chaos on top of more chaos.

Horrible lawyer
I hired Mr. Frazer for my divorce, it turns out that the entire divorce decree that he put together was not only incorrect but not legally allowed. This has affected my credit, My time and money. when he “legally transferred over property” the first thing I did was called him left messages with him and his receptionist, and not one phone call back.
