To Whom It May Concern

I recommend Robert Smith as an expert and very talented lawyer without reservation. He unraveled a crippling mess that had been ruining my life for three (3) years.

My wife falsely accused me of domestic violence. I was ejected from my only asset, a valuable building in midtown Manhattan that we had purchased for less than $300,000 before our marriage.

At the first divorce trial I was not well represented and I was skewered like a deer caught in the headlights. My prior lawyer didn’t prepare or guide me. I wound up with no divorce, no access to my children or my home and a $30,000 bill for legal fees.

One year later I met Mr. Smith and he turned my case and my life around for me.

He obtained a real estate appraisal that valued the Manhattan building at $1.8 million. He researched the law, and briefed the Court on New York partnership law. He prepared me for deposition and trial testimony. He demanded unsupervised access to my children and a prompt trial on my interest in the Manhattan building.

Although Mr. Smith and I prepared to start the second trial, my former wife capitulated at the eleventh hour. I received a generous but fair settlement on my joint ownership of the Manhattan building and liberal, unsupervised access to my kids.

While Mr. Smith was turning my case around, I got the direction and inspiration I needed to turn the rest of my life around. I filed my back income tax returns. My fiancé and I now plan to buy a business with the cash settlement I got.

Like that credit card commercial, I also got something else that is priceless – – my kids are free to spend time with their Dad.

Mr. Smith is the only person who ever got money out of my wife. He got her to agree to correct her bad behavior, and he did it honestly and professionally. I am eternally grateful to him.

Very truly yours,
