Complex Business Partnership Litigation
Mr. Amador did an excellent job throughout a very contentious business partnership breakup. He was thorough, detailed, knowledgeable, and had a very good strategic sense how to handle the case. He did not over-promise, but very accurately assessed the risks and appropriate response. He was completely honest and ethical. We had a completely favorable conclusion to the process that I attribute in large part to his expertise and hard work.

Attorney review
My experience with Bob has been one of his putting the power in my hands to make the decisions that are best for my needs. He is knowledgeable, thorough and committed to help me navigate through various strategies and potential outcomes, as busy as he may be always makes the time to be available for whatever questions I may have. It is rare to find counsel that brings a combination of high level expertise yet manages to convey the legal nuances in a way that doesn't overwhelm you or leave with less than a full understanding. I would recommend Bob highly to anyone for there legal needs and will look to him again when the time and need arises.

Corporation set up and product notices
My wife and I felt very comfortable after just a few minutes of meeting Bob. Very knowledgeable and reasonable. I had a business situation on a product warranty and Bob jumped on getting a release done and to me in short order. I shielded me from any further repercussions with the my two customers and kept a good standing with my customer. Thanks again Bob.
