    Me. Bonner was very professional and communicated with me on a regular basis. He walked me through the process and is second to none. Mr. Bonner's partner are as professional as he is. Made me feel comfortable through my 5-6 year long ordeal.

    I was represented by Mr. Bonner during a lawsuit that was brought on me. This was one of those frivolous lawsuits that were completely unmerited. The person filing the suit against me was obviously looking for quick money as some people do from larger companies to just quietly "go away." Not only was Mr. Bonner quick to handle this, but he made sure that the courts entered a judgement in my favor and the lawsuit was dropped. On top of that, the filing party paid the fees.

    Bob was the lead attorney when I was a defendant in a 10 million dollar lawsuit. His pleadings and briefs were so convincing that we won a directed verdict on behalf of the defendants. During the legal process, I found Bob to be easy to contact and he explained the processes in layman's terms. His professionalism and expertise are superior to most attorneys that I had dealt with.

    Robert Bonner refused to offer settlement in excess of $500.00 on excessive use of force claim against me and one other police officer. The plaintiff pursued the suit to trial where both officers were cleared within minutes of the jury going out for deliberations. I owe my professional reputation to Mr. Bonner and his firm and take comfort in continuing my career in law enforcement knowing there is a lawyer with Mr. Bonner's qualifications and trial skills to protect us from frivolous lawsuits.

    Bob Bonner successfully defended our police chief in a very complex multiple-defendant Federal civil rights lawsuit. Bob worked extremely well with our insurance company, co-defendant counsel, and our administrative team throughout the defense process, which spanned several years. I recommend Bob Bonner without any reservation whatsoever.
