Excellent Lawyer
It took us over a year to finally settle with my ex, but he always called and kept me notified of what was going on and what was expected. I would recommend him to anyone.

Professional and Personal
Initially, we simply wanted an exceptional family attorney who would represent us well. With Bob, not only did we get the results we wanted, but we got a good person who also cared about us and helped us through a very difficult season of life. He was timely in all of his communication, and moved the case along as efficiently and effectively as possible. And unlike our previous attorney, Bob did not overcharge us for anything. My family and I could not have asked for a better attorney.

Disappointed
While Mr. Pederzani may be very good at encouraging a settlement, he didn't have an interest in listening to my opinion. In my case, I indicated several times that I didn't think my wife was negotiating in good-faith. Rather than considering my feedback, Mr. Pederzani would lecture me that he had 37-years of experience and his "reach-out to your wife" approach would work. In fact, he would routinely call me with status reports with long-winded discussions. I attempted to cut short his lectures because it was rather expensive to listen to these lectures, but he would keep going and going. Needless to say, he burned through the retainer without producing any results. I eventually retained an aggressive attorney, where we successfully and cost-effectively dictated settlement terms. If both parties can settle, then Mr. Pederzani might be an excellent attorney. In my case, I'm very happy to have switched to someone that listened to my opinion.

"Bob has a saying, "In family law, there is no substitution for experience." He's right! When one thinks of family law, what typically comes to mind? Divorce. In this emotionally-charged time of need, an experienced attorney, both in law and matters of the heart, is a necessity. Bob is both extremely knowledgeable and personable. I not only endorse this lawyer, but I have recommended Bob's legal services to several persons, including a family member, because I know he is competent and trustworthy."

"Bob is a particularly active practitioner with superb legal and organizational skills. He seems to operate his practice smoothly and efficiently, in spite of the significant volume of cases that he handles.
