Custody Modification
Robert Abrams did an amazing job representing me during my custody modification. I had been going to court off and on for five years with no resolution to my petitions. I finally decided to find an attorney to represent me. Mr. Abrams let me know out front what concerns are valid and what may or may not be granted by the court. His experience and expertise made me feel confident during the entire court process. The end result was everything in my petition being granted by the court. I highly recommend Robert and his staff to anyone who needs assistance in family civil court matters.

Unaware of commercial property in escrow and was being forced with 2 days notice to sign escrow papers .
I received a message that the property that I was on the title with was in escrow . I wasn't aware of the property even forsale , let alone in escrow ,My x partners tried to force me to sign escrow papers with nothing as far as a sales contract regarding the sale . The attorney involved with this sale sent me a email telling me if i refused to sign papers by friday at noon , they would file a law suit to try and lift my name off the title . So 3;45 friday I was notified of a law suit filed against myself for not signing escrow papers. Just happened to be a 3day weekend and needed to get someone experienced in Real Estate property sales and contacted Bob Abrams . Bob replied to me posting my post for legal help on Monday a Holiday and made a appointment for me to come to his office to explain in detail my situation .Bob had stopped the court action and has made it possible for the escrow papers to be signed with receiving a check made out to me for the sale of the property of partnership percentage as the LLC Agreement was written . Further more Bob is also helping me get some Moneys owed for the rental of this property that goes back 5 years ago ,and other Moneys with the sale of the business also . Bob Abrams is Very easy to understand and is A Great Attorney . Thanks Bob for living up to your Words of saying that I am in good hands . not too worry .....

Help with Real Estate Issues
I asked for information about a possible for closure. Which I then proceeded to do. He was also very helpful when the Bank did not complete their follow up to release me from the 2nd trust deed 2 years after the for closure sale. Additional letters resolved the problem. I have recommended him to my friends, should they need legal advice in regards to Real Estate issues.

Best Real Estate Attorney in Fresno!
I have had the pleasure of knowing Mr. Abrams for about 5 years. He is always happy to answer any questions I may have regarding my real estate business. He has conducted a couple of informational meetings that were very helpful. He is very knowledgeable in all areas of the real estate industry. He is the only Real Estate Attorney in Fresno that I would recommend.

Helped in an easement dispute
Mr Abrams is helping out 13 individuals that have had an on going dispute with a neighbor over the use of a deeded easement. We discussed the issue with him and he advised us of our options. We took his recommendations for action and we are prevailing. This has been a 10 year problem. Mr Abrams promised to keep our cost down as much as he could and he has been true to his word. He anticipated the defendants actions and saved the cost of serving them the complaint. That was one of several actions he has taken to keep our cost under control. He has been available to answer all our concerns in a timely matter. Thank You Mr Abrams.

Robert Abrams - wills and trusts
I've known Bob for many years, primarily through the church we both attended; a church that Bob is an elected leader for today. He has become an instrument of wisdom and encouragement to the leadership of the church and to the people in his sphere of influence. I came to Robert Abrams for his help in crafting my will. Coming to realize that I needed one after living for nearly five decades without it, Bob was not judgmental or condescending but gave me the professional courtesy I needed to complete the task. His help was greatly appreciated. I refer others to Bob as I now work in an industry where discussions on distinctly personal financial matters bears the question, "do you have an up to date will or trust in place?" It gives me peace to know that these families can trust Bob's expertise as they experience his gracious approach in their lives.

Susie and Carol make this attorney one you want to skip. They do not call you back and tell you things afterward. Not a trustworthy team. Find someone else that cares about your situation.

Insensitive, uncaring, unprofessional
I had a phone consultation. Mr Abrams said I see you had an MSA in you divorces then states "What do you need me for then"? Later on he asked what my income was then say's "that's all you make"? He laughed when I told him I did not have an attorney during my divorce. He told me that I make bad decisions since I have had to file bankruptcy 8 years ago. I have never been spoke to by an attorney like this in my life!

Response from Robert Abrams February 21, 2020
I did have a phone conversation with this person as an accommodation to them and unfortunately was only able to tell them I did not practice in the area I believe they would need assistance. I would never tell somebody they make bad decisions nor laugh at them. I feel badly that this person feels they heard something that was not said and certainly never intended and I hope they are able to obtain assistance with their issue.
