Robert Stempler
So happy we found Mr. Stempler to represent us. His professionalism and expertise was top-notch. If we didn’t quite understand something, he took the time to explain it to us in simpler terms so we did understand. He absolutely went above and beyond to make sure we were treated fairly and justly. If you need an attorney who is incredibly knowledgeable, detailed & experienced, we highly recommend Mr. Robert Stempler.

Professional, Experienced and Thorough
This is a review that is very long past due. I posted a question on AVVO and out of all of the Attorneys that had replied, Mr. Robert Stempler gave the best solid answer. I was so impressed, I decided to call him and left a message late on a Friday night. Since, I was driving my daughter down to Long Beach to attend college that evening. Thinking it would be Monday or Tuesday of next week until I get a reply. I was pleasantly surprised to receive a phone call on Saturday morning from Mr. Stempler himself asking for more specific details about my case. Then he gave me options and his option as to which direction I should take even if I should hire him or not. I asked him does he normally work on the weekends he replied "I like to get a head start on potential clients." I commissioned Mr. Robert Stempler to work on my case. From start until end, he kept me informed and updated. I was very pleased with his services and what he charged me was fair. He filed all the necessary paperwork with the court and I am ecstatic and pleased to report, he won the case on my behalf. If ever I need his services again, I would call him first and outright. He was very respectable and mindful on how stressful my case caused me. I greatly recommend Mr. Robert Stempler and his Law Firm.

Thumbs up!
Robert is a great attorney. Very professional and will handle everything for a reasonable fee. We were able to reach a settlement and my case was dismissed. Would recommend!

Quick Response
Although this lawyer was not able to personally help me, he responded very quickly which was much appreciated since my case was extremely time-sensitive. He even spent the time giving me 3 resources for law centers that might be able to help. Even though he couldn't take my case, he sent me in the right direction so that I had a better idea of what my circumstance was.

Exceptional professionalism
I engaged the services of Mr. Stempler on a quite complicated task - negotiations with a company which has purchased a debt I had with a lending institution. Mr. Stempler was very thorough and meticulous, bringing the issue to a successful end for me. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs an accomplished professional's help.

Knowledgeable, Professional, Results!
I spoke to several attorneys in search of someone to negotiate a judgment that was nearly 10 years old. While most had a “take it or leave it” attitude, Mr. Stempler was quite the opposite. He was willing to hear me out and worked with me to come up with a plan that I felt good about to negotiate the judgment. I was impressed that he gave me specific instructions on how to research the history of the judgment so that I understood all my options. Mr. Stempler’s fee was more that fair and kept me in the loop every step of the way often replying to my email questions late at night and on the weekend. This gave me the peace of mind I needed through this stressful process. I highly recommend Mr. Robert Stempler to negotiate your judgment or collection account.

The Best Consumer Lawyer Out There to Me
To make a long story short, I was given a judgement through the mail for a credit card judgement against me from almost 10 years ago. After looking for months for someone to help me through this I found Robert through a you tube video. After contacting him, he put my mind at rest and within a few months we settled for 60-70% less then what the judgement was. I will always be grateful for what Robert has done for our family, he helped us through a difficult time. Thank you Always

Highly recommended!!!!
Short version: If you have been served for credit card debt stop reading and contact Robert Stempler NOW!!!! He gets the FACTS for your situation and does what he says with no hidden fees. I do not like to spend money when I don't have to but hiring Robert Stempler was the best investment I have ever made!!!! I never had to go to court and after making very reduced payments my case was dismissed. THANK YOU Robert Stempler!!!!

Got the job done and worth every penny
Short version: If you have been served for credit card debt stop reading and contact Robert Stempler now, he does what he says with no hidden fees. The longer version: I was served a summons, somewhat unexpectedly, for credit card debt recently. To say I was freaked out would be an understatement. After some research on the internet I learned that not responding in the correct legal way would result in a default judgement and that would be really bad. This is a scary thing for most and I was extremely skeptical of who would be helpful and who would try to take further advantage of my already bad situation. I ended up finding Stempler on avvo.com from a google search, saw the positive reviews and ended up on his website/blog where there are some good articles about what should be done in these situations. I ended up calling (a huge hurdle for me because I had to talk about an embarrassing issue and that I needed help). Anyway Stempler was awesome, right to the point about what he could do for me and what I would need to do to resolve the issue. I also spoke with a local lawyer who was going to charge more and kind of felt more schmoozy to me. Anyway I choose to work with Stempler and about 30 days later my case is resolved without a judgement and I couldn't have expected better.

A God Send
Robert Stempler is a God send! I originally tried to handle everything myself, but I got to a point that I just couldn't deal with all the stress. In my hour of need, I was fortunate enough to find Robert Stempler while searching online for a lawyer. I happened upon Avvo.com and saw his reviews and I thought he was too good to be true. In fact, he was true and he was even better! You will not find a better lawyer who keeps you up to date and informed and within a timely manner. Any questions I had were answered the same day and I always felt like I was in the know. Robert never told me what to do or what I should do. Instead, he informed me of my options and only offered advice when I asked for it. I highly recommend! Thank you so much Robert Stempler!
