    Robert was very communicative and gave the good and bad on the case from all aspects. In addition, he assimilated all of the facts then gave his own opinion instead of listening to others. At times was at odds with Lawyers from much larger firms and this never intimidated him. I had a favorable outcome and enjoyed working with him and his firm.
