When contacting Mr. Banks I had already been told by another firm that there was very little if any hope for our case...I knew our case was different in that it involved not just investment fraud..but real estate property. There were many pieces to the puzzle..and at times was hard to put together. Mr. Banks and his team spent countless hours putting things together..many times calling me after hours to go over things. He spent hours going over police records and talking with people that could one day be called as expert witnesses.
After over a year of countless hours of work our case was settled. I appreciate all that was done for us. Mr. Banks never stated it was a sure thing...BUT let me know it was worth the fight...AND IT WAS

I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity of working very closely with Bob Banks for the past three years. He has represented, as a plaintiff, the nonprofit organization of which I am a board member in two highly complex malpractice suits against professionals - one a lawyer and the other a business appraiser. In both cases, Bob delivered highly satisfactory results.
Not only is Bob exceptionally knowledgeable and skilled, he is also one of the best human beings I have met. He is a person of the highest principles and integrity. He is sublimely respectful, caring and considerate. He is a talented strategist, and a highly effective communicator and relationship builder. He is tough, but fair.
Without any reservation whatsoever, I would enthusiastically recommend him to any individual or organization in need.
