Patient and Compassionate
Mr. Cartwright took excellent care of me by explaining the process, answering questions clearly, providing advice and options, and tutoring and guiding me confidently through the deposition and negotiation processes. I always felt that he was looking over my shoulder and kept my best interests foremost. He is also a very engaging, personable individual. He always had time for me and treated me like I was the most important client. And he secured the best solution with the least amount of agony!

Professional, friendly, communicative and effective
I am very grateful to Robert Cartwright Jr. and his associates. I have a small business and they helped me fight a large company to get the best settlement possible for a product that I found was not feasible with my business after purchase. Robert and his associates worked hard for me, the little guy, and were professional, efficient, friendly and kept me apprised of all options and progressions of the case. If ever in the need of legal counsel, Robert Cartwright is at the top of my list!

Truly amazing experience
I was a little skeptical when I was attempting to find a lawyer that would actually take the time to listen to my case. I had been struck by a truck, while walking in a crosswalk on 7th avenue and Cabrillo, near Golden Gate Park. After being turned away by several law firms, I went in for a free consultation with the Cartwright Law Firm. I could tell immediately that Rob and his team were willing to listen to my case, and made me feel as comfortable as possible while listening to my story. Rob helped me win a huge settlement without having to take one foot inside a courthouse. Rob Cartwright is truly professional, competent, experienced, and respectful. I would not want to go up against this amazing lawyer. Highly recommended.
