Under promised and over delivered
We hired Mr. Shtofman to fix a mess that my mother’s previous attorney had left behind. We were running out of time and did not know what to do. We were fortunate enough to have been referred to Mr. Shtofman by another attorney. At first we were nervous about hiring another attorney after our previous experience. However, after our first meeting with Mr. Shtofman we were confident that he would get the job done. Within days of hiring him, Mr. Shtofman appeared in court on our behalf and has begun the process of fixing the previous attorney’s mess. We are so grateful to have met him and to be working with him. He is truly passionate about his work and bringing justice to unfair situations. If you have a challenging situation, save yourself some time and hire the best attorney in the valley, Mr. Shtofman.

Skilled Surgeon!
Brought Robert in to deposition the plaintiff against me. Robert, slowly and methodically took apart the person with his clear, precise and probing questions. It was like experiencing a skilled surgeon cut out various infected areas of cancer little by little and piece by piece. He expertly exposed the lies, falsehoods and outlandish accusations associated in the lawsuit, leaving the plaintiff befuddled, exhausted and defeated. He had 37 pages of questions and had only completed six of them before the plaintiff threw up his hands in surrender, wanting to settle, knowing that he had been completely exposed. BRAVO!

Our David
Mr. Shtofman was brought in to assist with litigation in a malpractice suit regarding our late son. His dedication and professional persistence, in our son's case brought about answers that we could never have received from the University on our own; no matter how hard we had tried. If you ever find yourself going up against a "Goliath" size obstacle, I would truly and respectfully recommend that your first call be to the offices of Robert Shtofman.

I was wrongfully sued. Mr. Shtofman was referred to me by another lawyer. Mr. Shtofman handled my defense and got the case dismissed early. He saved me hundreds of thousands of dollars and I was vindicated of the false civil allegations. I am proud to recommend him to anyone who needs a very strong, honest and smart attorney.
