About Robert

Learn Robert’s areas of practice.

I came to Alaska in 1995 fresh out of lawschool with a plan to stay for a year and never left.  In 2007, my wife, Jeannie, and I started our own firm, focusing our practice on divorce and family law. One of the lessons I have learned over the years is the importantance of having a client focused legal strategy.  That is why I take the time to listen.

Great Impression
I've reached out to Robert regarding dissolution of my marriage. Robert was straightforward on the topic and a great guy to talk to! Will definitely recommend him and work with him in the future!

Extremely helpful
Mr Sato took time out of his busy schedule to give me a consultation over the phone. He allowed me to gain a good foothold on my situation. he even offered his assistance in the future.

I have referred 3 other people to Rob and he has taken good care of them also!
Rob Sato's firm was recommended to me be a family member. Rob not only represented me very well, but, I got some of my retainer back since my legal expenses weren't as high as we anticipated. I would (and have) recommended Rob to several other people. He is honest, to-the-point, and ethical. his office staff is helpful, calm and efficient. Seriously, I never thought I would be able to say that I had a positive experience with a lawyer, but I truly had a positive experience with Rob Sato as my lawyer. If I ever need a lawyer again, I will be calling Rob.

Great supportive lawyer
I went thru a very complicated custody case in which my ex was trying to get custody of my kid and stop me from traveling abroad, although this was a very complicated case that lasted over 2 years Rob was very supportive and down to earth and helped thru the process by keeping me grounded too. Thanks

Rob was my lawyer during a difficult divorce. He was supportive and took a personal interest in my case. He did not appear to be motivated only by money. I was very please that he was my lawyer.

Satisfied Client
Rob helped my mother with very financially complex divorce case. He did a wonderful job throughout the entire process. Best of all, he calmed us down when we got emotional and wanted to make bigger demands. Many attorneys take advantage of such circumstances to make a divorce case more complex to wrack up higher fees. The case went to trial and could not have gone any better for us thanks to Rob's counsel and beautifully crafted arguments.
