Mr Kaufman is not only a great attorney he is also a great man. I was caged myself in a bad marriage for years before I met him. Divorce was my only option but unfortunately I was not making enough money to afford an attorney; I did not have any access to our family finances and I was very hopeless. After a research, I had made an appointment with Mr Kaufman for a free consultation. As an immigrant, English was my second language but the legal terms felt like a third language in the beginning. He was very patient with me. He listened to me attentively, explained all the steps that needed to be taken and most importantly he accepted to get my divorce case without getting paid beforehand. Our divorce case eventually became more complicated because my ex- husband started another case in our home country. Handling two divorce cases in two countries was really stressful and challenging for me but Mr Kaufman was always there whenever I needed his help. He was always prompt to return my calls, knowledgeable to answer my questions in a great details and trustworthy to discuss my options honestly. I felt like my voice was heard the first time in years by someone who can help me because of his representation. We got divorced in the US with a 80/20 ratio on my favor. This result gave me an opportunity to start over my life after the age of 52. The other divorce case that my ex husband started in our home country has been still going on. The most impressive part was that when I needed his assistance after our divorce was finalized in the US he continued returning my calls promptly and after reviewing my documents he offered his help to handle the issues. I feel so lucky to have him on my side throughout the hardest time in my life. If you are looking for an attorney who is knowledgeable, trustworthy and dependable stop searching; Mr Kaufman is the one. Thank very much again Mr Kaufman!

Bob is very professional, knowledgeable, friendly and easy to work with. He is prompt and most importantly, from a clients point of view, uses his time well. I would definitely recommend Bob to friends and family.

I doubt there are any easy divorces, and hiring a lawyer can be a serious leap-of-faith for anyone.
That being said I will testify that from my first visit with Bob I walked out of his office feeling relief and confidence that I was in understanding, compassionate and competent hands. He had the needed experience and skills to assure my interests were fully represented. My divorce was timely, thorough and as painless as can be expected. Thanks Bob.

Mr. Kaufman was recommended to me by a friend. He was easy to work with and responded quickly to all my questions. He helped get my dissolution resolved quickly during a difficult time for me. I appreciated his help and advice in what is often a long and confusing process.

Bob was extremely good at listening to my concerns, organizing our objectives and preparing for family court proceedings. His court presentations were smooth, professional and stayed on point. Very easy to work with at a reasonable cost.

Bob Kaufman represented me during my divorce -- a process which took nearly 9 months due to the nature of my relationship. Mr. Kaufman and his legal assistant were quick to respond initially, but then became increasingly slow to respond and even stopped returning voicemails and phone calls. When they stopped responding to emails for WEEKS at a time, I started having to call the courts myself -- which I was then yelled at for by Mr. Kaufman who asked why I didn't trust him. (I wonder why?)
At one point, I needed to serve my spouse while he was in a hospital -- I was informed by the clinic there was only a specific way this could be done, but Mr. Kaufman ignored this information which cost me several hundred dollars in legal fees and I had to do the footwork myself to serve him.
Mr. Kaufman provided very little legal advice, and was demeaning to me throughout the process. Divorce is not easy and creates incredibly high anxiety -- Mr. Kaufman took his frustrations of my anxiousness out on me several times when I stopped by the office (which he billed me for unexpectedly!) and on the phone.
My final bill was also outrageous -- I had another lawyer took a look at our divorce decree, which was "the simplest decree [he] had ever seen" -- yet I ended up paying nearly $6,000 for the process, which was done entirely ex parte (without a need to even step into court). He also refused to accept any type of payment plan, despite the fact I had just lost a second income. Despite the fact my financial situation was part of the reason I was getting divorced, I had to max out my credit cards to pay him. Totally unreasonable.
Yes, Mr. Kaufman got the job done -- which did not require any communication with opposing counsel or even my ex. It was really the easiest divorce ever despite some administrative footwork, yet Mr. Kaufman was rude and took advantage of the situation simply because I had questions and wished to communicate about the process.
I wish I had done more research on the cost and process of divorce before hiring him.

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.

I was referred to Bob Kaufman by a friend after a negative experience with another attorney. He was quick to respond to my inquiries and assisted me in navigating a very contentious divorce situation. I would highly recommend his services to my friends or family needing representation in the future.

Bob assisted me with very contentious post-secondary school legal matters with my ex. He adeptly navigated the legal system and kept me informed every step of the way. Bob is a true professional and a trusted advisor. I would highly recommend Bob for family law issues of any kind.
