A New Life!
After three years of struggling with the aftermath of my divorce, I decided to seek professional advice. Robert was recommended to me so I made the appointment. Within minutes with Robert I could see a better future and a remedy to my financial problems as I had old debt and a weak credit score. I filed chapter 7 less than six months ago. Today my debt is gone and my credit score increased 72 points to the fair range. Robert listens and is knowledgeable. I thank him for my new life!

Best Experience
I had the best experience with Robert's services and I'm glad I have chosen him among a total of four very good lawyers I visited. He exceeded all my expectations. Robert is extremely professional, knowledgeable and friendly and his attributes translated the positive outcome of my case. He went an extra mile to win my business and I did appreciated that. He kept in touch throughout the whole process which gave the assurance I was in the right hands. All was done very smoothly and in a timely manner. He's also part of a vast network of lawyers in all areas of the law so, if you are looking for a lawyer, whatever the case might be, Robert Bialkin is the one to be called upon. Highly recommended.

Thank you Robert Bialkin, you made our bankruptcy process easy to understand and complete!
"When we went to Robert we had already been looking for an attorney for several weeks to help us with our bankruptcy. We even had one hour-long interview with another attorney in town who asked us a ton of questions but then ran out of time just as we wanted to ask him questions about the procedure. We left with more questions than answers and an uncomfortable feeling about his skills. Then we saw Robert Bialkin's website which was upbeat, professional and specific as to procedure, so we met with him. He was the opposite of the first attorney and gave us quick, complete answers to all our questions and the time to explain our needs. He had such a pleasant "bedside manner" that when we left our very first meeting we went out to breakfast to celebrate finding someone we were confident could do the job! And just as Robert promised, things went quickly, smoothly and painlessly and we're now back on track, on the road to financial recovery. Highly recommended!

Amazing Lawyer
Robert was very accommodating with our initial appointment and met us on a Sunday. Since day one of meeting Robert he has made us feel at ease and alleviated our stress during these difficult times. He has increased our knowledge and given us very helpful direction in resolving our financial situation. He even stopped a judgment against us that was garnishing my wife's wages!!!! His easy payment plan is very helpful in these times when money is tight. We would and have recommended his services to our friends and family in need of his services. He is a very professional, knowledgeable, kind, and most down to earth lawyer we have ever met. Robert is an amazing guy and we are very grateful to him for helping us get a fresh start.

Best Lawyer Ever!!!
Robert was the best lawyer ever. He was always a step ahead of where we needed to be. He answered his phone ALL of the time and most of all made me feel like everything was going to be okay. I feel very fortunate to have had him working for me.

Robert Bialkin is the Best!
I met Robert Bialkin through the legal services offered by the Council on Aging in Santa Rosa. The fee for the initial consultation was $40, which I forgot and he made no mention of. We had a subsequent meeting and again he did not ask for any money. He also counseled me in phone conversations and emails. Again, the subject of money or a bill for services rendered did not come up. Finally, I had to ask him what I owed him. His bill was more than fair, at about half what I had expected. As it turned out, my situation changed and Robert referred me to someone he felt could better serve me. But my legal problems had been extremely stressful, which became clear to Robert, and he was still concerned about me. He called on several occasions just to see how I was doing and to offer help in any way. I'm 65 years old, and have had my share of lawyers, but none have been like Robert Bialkin. He got into his profession for the right reason -- to be of service. Helping people is his first concern, not how much money can he make. I could not be happier with Robert and wholeheartedly recommend him 100%. He is the best. If you have a legal problem, I suggest you call Robert. You will be treated fairly and with respect, and if he feels someone else could better serve you, he will refer you to that person. If you start with Robert Bialkin you can't go wrong.

I very highly recommend Attorney Robert Bialkin to you for any of your legal needs.
I very highly recommend Attorney Robert Bialkin to you for any of your legal needs. Robert was recommended by a friend, and he did a superior job in guiding me through my bankruptcy. In helping me both with whether and how to file bankruptcy, Robert gladly and graciously answered all of my voluminous questions and phone calls. After fully assessing my situation and needs and providing me with exacting information and solutions, I was able to create a solid foundation of knowledge and process upon which I could make informed decisions. In the process, as I was learning how to handle harassing phone calls, what to do with my money and my assets, etc., Robert was there guiding me every step of the way. And when everything was finalized, my stress had disappeared and my hope had returned. Feeling free of stress and hopeful is priceless, and I have Robert Bialkin to thank for that. Robert is a very special attorney, and I know through experience that for any legal need, I will go to him. And so, I very highly recommend Attorney Robert Bialkin to you.

Bialkin Recommendation
I felt that Robert was deliberate and thoughtful in his interactions with me. He was personable, always made me feel that he was on my side. When unanticipated complications arose, he tackled them patiently and without adding costs to our original contract. He prepared me well for court appearances so that I was not surprised by anything.

Great advice and help during difficult times for me
When my finances were in tatters, Robert's steady guidance really helped me keep it together while declaring bankruptcy. I was guided through the requirements each step of the way, including easiest and cheapest solutions for the coursework one has to complete to qualify. Robert's advice and presence was also immensely helpful during the hearing. Looking back, it was a very smooth and well ordered process. I am very grateful to have had Robert's excellent representation.

An Attorney who cares
The first thing Robert did was to assure me that everything was going to be all right and that he would take control of the situation. He immediately got started on my case and encouraged me to put all my fears aside and trust that my interests were most important. He made me feel like I was his number one client. He continuously kept me updated via phone and e-mail and informed me immediately of any news regarding my case. The outcome of my case was very positive and everything was settled in a very short period of time. He honestly cares.

My first bankruptcy
As I was shopping around for the right attorney to file bankruptcy for my first time, I had noticed nearly all of them were quick to quote me fees and charges before they went into the actual process involved in filing. To me, that made me very uncomfortable and questioned the integrity of these attorneys. After feeling as if I should just give up, I was referred to Robert Bialkin and scheduled a consultation. Robert must have seen the concern and worry in my eyes regarding whether or not I’m making the right decision. After discussing the process in great detail, Robert put all my fears at ease. He put me and my concerns first, before any costs were discussed. I felt confident I was making the right decision to file. Robert truly is the best of the best in his profession and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a bankruptcy attorney. He’s compassionate, knowledgeable, caring, with you every step of the way, always available to talk with, speedy and thorough with the filing process.
