It was noted that my case was unique. Mr. Bauer loves a challenge and has clarity, vision, brevity, and a no-nonsense, professional approach to achieve goals, and positive results for the client & the case. I went into this case with a nervous view of what was ahead of me - however, Mr. Bauer helped me see the truths that were evident in my case, that I didn't see, much less, consider. I was most impressed with his verbal skills during my Hearing. Very sharp.

Robert was a great asset to us. It was the first time we had to have legal assistance, and he helped us through a very difficult situation in our life. Robert made us feel safe and comfortable during the case. This gave us peace of mind. When hard times come your way, call Mr. Robert W. Bauer.

I hired Mr Bauer to start a foreclosure for me. After paying him $2600 retainer, I was amazed to discover that two months later, he still had not filed a Foreclosure Complaint, even though this is a one page document that takes about 10 minutes to complete. Well, it gets better folks. We are now over 8 months, and still nothing. He will not respond to my letters. I am now in the process of filing a complaint with the Florida Bar Association. This attorney is a straight up thief.
