Family Law Case
I was represented by Robert Uy in my divorce case. Mr Uy is not only a professional and knowledgeable attorney, but just a smart man. The case was settled as intended. Thank you, attorney Robert Uy!

Atty. Robert Uy was referred to me by an organization in downtown San Francisco and was told that he got the necessary experience that I need as my case is not ordinary. And indeed it was a success!!!
