One incredible attorney!
Mr. Teel assisted me at a time when I was going through a seperation, and needed to be clear on what the next step to do was, pertaining to an out of state investments with my partner at the time. He gave me such comfort and assurance, and helped me understand my rights as an individual, seperate from the relationship. Hes so good at explaining, and coming up with a plan that was comfortable to me. I would Highly recommend Robert Teel, even to my best friend or family members!

Highly recommend
I am an independent public relations consultant specializing in crisis communications and media relations for public and private entities. Robert has advised me on a myriad of legal issues my clients face, including such diverse matters as environmental concerns, embezzlement, child protective issues, and land use. Without exception, Mr. Teel has provided excellent advice and direction to reduce my clients' legal exposure. Because the majority of my work involves crisis situations, it is important that I receive this counsel in an immediate fashion. Mr. Teel is accessible for me on a moment's notice, and has always been immediately responsive. I will continue to utilize his services.

This guy is a go-getter!
Recently I needed to petition the State of California, and required a seasoned attorney to do so. Robert Teel has a real knack for legal theory. He really does his homework sizing up the situation, the laws, and opponents. He furthermore carefully calculates risk, and his honest about the chances. He complements his judiciousness before the court date with eloquence and personality in the courtroom. Throughout the case he was a perfect communicator: keeping me up to date and providing very clear instructions what and what not I -- as a client -- had to do. His ethics are impeccable, by the way, which I suppose one can't take for granted these days. It has been a pleasure and hopefully will continue to be.
