I was raised in a conservative culture. My marriage was wrought with abuse; and the saga continued, for over a decade, post-divorce. My naivety during the divorce cost me dearly. There were a multitude of problems relating to child support, residential schedules, property settlements, and other matters. Despite the overt hostility of my ex-spouse, I tried to resolve the issues amicably – but it fell on deaf ears. As a last resort, I finally agreed to approaching an attorney for help. I was referred to attorney extraordinaire, Mr. Robert Kaufman, by a friend who lost a case to him. My friend was highly impressed with Mr. Kaufman; and recognized his innate talent.
When I first met Mr. Kaufman, I expressed fear of retaliation from my ex-spouse. Mr. Kaufman was empathetic, evinced cultural sensitivity, and vested himself in fighting for the our legal rights. Mr. Kaufman went the extra mile to comprehend the complexities of my culture. He went above and beyond to protect and ensure the safety of my children and me. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of having a outstanding attorney, like Mr. Kaufman, who unafraid for to fight for the rights of people from different walks of life. He is caring, compassionate, extraordinarily talented, and works hard for his clients. I appreciated his approach to placating familial issues on amicable terms. Mr. Kaufman’s stately and tacit demeanor is one of his greatest strengths. Do not mistake his calm trait for compliance. He dauntlessly fends for the rights of his clients in litigation matters - and has a long track record of successes to prove his mettle. As in my case, my ex-spouse retorted, with the aid of an unscrupulous attorney, to false allegations and character assassination. Mr. Kaufman deftly defied and halted the disgraceful antics. I have worked with Mr. Kaufman for nearly two years (the legal issues pertaining to my divorce were complex and tedious). He championed all of the aforementioned litigation matters ACING every case in our favor!
Mr. Kaufman's technical veracity while upholding the dignity of his client is remarkable. He always kept me up-to-date about the proceedings during each litigation. He always made time to explain legalese, recommended options, and inspired me to be in control of my legal rights. Communication was seamless and timely. I was grateful for not having to deal with sticker shock because he does not nickel and dime clients. Mr. Kaufman could charge astronomical rates and still run a roaring business. However, he has made it his mission to crusade for those who are in dire need of legal help– he is dedicated to his art (i.e., Family Law).
Mr. Kaufman's talent is undeniable (and supported by 35+ years of experience). Needless to say, because of Mr. Kaufman's unwavering support, extensive knowledge, experience in with working with people from all walks of life, we WON every single case. I will forever remain in his debt for protecting my children. I am indebted to Mr. Kaufman for his guidance, patience and support through the prolix journey.
I unequivocally recommend Mr. Kaufman to those seeking an elite warrior to tide them through legal battles!

Robert represented me during a drawn out divorce. Robert is superb. He shows empathy when it is needed and has a confident and knowledgeable manner. Robert sticks to the facts even when emotions are running high. In my experience Robert is able to communicate with opposing counsel in a calm, collected way while taking the high ground, especially with counsel that may themselves operate with too much emotion. Robert also operates his practice with the highest of ethics in terms of billing. I highly recommend Mr. Kaufman.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I had the pleasure of working with Bob as pro hac vice counsel on a matter regarding the interpretation of a client's post nuptial agreement. Bob was extremely helpful in helping me navigate the nuances of Washington law, as well as extremely supportive on substantive questions of law and client management. He went above and beyond and made working on an out-of-state case much easier. I hope he and I have the pleasure of working together again!
