Patient yet Precise
Robert, is a very accurate speaker, kind to the sound, yet powerful to the presence. Similar to the motorcycle brand Suzuki, GXSR; which I pronounce "Gycer". Thank you, Mr. Sullivan

Wow i don't even know where to begin with this review! In the beginning I wasn't used to someone being so aggressive I took it as he was being mean to me but as I got to know him, I figured out thats how he is and that's how he wins everything! I had a case that took about 5 years to complete and I would do it all over again with him. He is strong and he is not afraid of anyone or anything! If you want a confident strong lawyer who won't back down then Robert is the attorney for you!! Don't take his strong personality as an offense that he is being mean to you, he just wants you to win. In the end Robert won all 3 of the cases I had to go through. My WC case my case against the employer and then my SIF case! All I have to say is God put him as my lawyer for a reason and the reason was winning it all. God bless you Robert and thank you i could never ever repay you the way you deserve.

What a relief when we found the Law Offices of Nedeem H. Makada
We are so grateful that Robert Sullivan was assigned to our personal injury cases. The staff was also very professional and friendly. My mother and I were involved in an auto accident a few years ago. We felt incredibly burdened by the combined stress of dealing with our injuries and numerous parties involved, from doctors, hospitals, physical therapist, pain management including insures, adjuster and medical insurance billing. Robert Sullivan went over the details of both cases and what our goals were. He is very knowledgeable, skilled with personal injury law and negotiations. He walked us through a detailed and specific course of action that he would take, consulted with us, and kept us updated throughout including the entire mediation of our cases. The circumstances were stressful but Robert’s professionalism and care helped us get through the whole process. In the end, Robert negotiated both settlements. He did a fantastic job and we are happy that we can put this auto accident behind us. His professional excellence, incredible skills, experience and kindness far exceeded our expectations.

Robert is the best!!!!!!
I truly feel like Robert, my lawyer was meant to take my case. Looking back, there is no one better and I am glad the heavens put him in my path. He goes to the moon and back for his clients and communicates in timely manner when needed. Robert you are an earth angel.

Great Job!!! Recommend him without any reservations.
Mr. Sullivan was the best option after being injured and let go from my job. I interviewed several attorneys, but none inspired confidence. I eventually was referred to Mr. Sullivan by a friend. I am glad to have chosen him since he explained the process throughout and got a beneficial settlement. The legal process is not easy, especially after working for a company 18 plus years. I really appreciate the time that he took to clarify any doubts and the promptness in getting back to me. I would gladly recommend him to my family and friends. For those folks that speak Spanish, they also have bilingual staff. I am native in Spanish but did not need the assistance. As you can tell, I am going the extra mile to provide feedback just because I feel he deserves it. He did a great job!!!

One of the most sincere attorneys who advocates even through a global pandemic and my trauma from physical/emotional injuries
Robert and Nadeem have an awesome team. Any time I had questions or concerns, I got a response. Although Robert Sullivan made me aware that the WC claims process requires plenty of waiting, additional factors and the COVID-19 pandemic posed further challenges for me that Robert treated with grace and understanding. There aren’t many people who practice law like Robert, with sincerity, empathy and honesty. I truly believe Robert is an outstanding individual and attorney.

My awesome attorney
I went to to see Mr. Sullivan because I was having pains in my lower back and neck. I was having headaches and also problems with my digestive system. He was very knowlegable, savvy, smart and a very easy person to talk to. I explained him my situation on what was going at work and he helped with the medical aspect of my case . In my book he is a very iconic attorney. I would recommeend him to friends and family if i needed to. Thank you again Robert Sullivan

Awesome Personal Injury Attorney!!!
I am very grateful for Mr. Sullivan's representation in my PI case. He is as aggressive as they come and I am very pleased with the end results. Mr. Sullivan is trustworthy and I will definitely recommend him for any PI case.
