  • I couldn't have been happier with his devotion and work ethic.
    I contacted Rob on short notice for a traffic offense. He was always very quick to respond with any questions I had leading up to my court date and was very reassuring. He kept me informed every step of the way and was confident and professional throughout. I couldn't have been happier with his devotion and work ethic. I highly recommend Rob.

  • Calm and professional.
    Robert was recommended to me by a friend and I will recommend Robert to others that seek help. He explained a lot of things that I did not understand in a calm and professional manner. Thank you Rob.

  • Rob Cleland was the best thing that could have happened!
    I received a felony DUI during a relapse after 10 years of recovery. When I got sober, I was staying with a friend whose life was severely effected because of having a felony on his record. He kindly offered to pay part of the legal fee to see Rob Cleland and that was the best thing that could have happened!

    Rob worked tirelessly to get me diversion even though it wasn't an option due to missed court dates. Then, instead of judging me, he helped me to renew my diversion when I wasn't able to complete it the first time due to relapses. All throughout the process, Rob showed endless compassion and understanding at a time that I needed it the most. I am so grateful to my friend and to rob for their amazing help.

    I have recommended friends to Rob Cleland and will continue to do so.

  • Robert Cleland is honest, respectable, and sincere.
    Though my case never ending up going to court and Robert did not end up having to represent me (my ex wife dropped charges) he had taken time out of his busy schedule to meet with me and discuss what my possible options were. Being not very knowledgeable when pertaining to child custody issues I really had no idea of what to do or who to talk to in order to resolve my dilemma as quickly as possible. Though after contacting him and finding out that he does not do child custody/ divorce matters he still offered to sit down with me and hear what I had to say. Robert listened to my situation, I explained how my ex wanted sole custody of my daughter and that I had just been served with papers. He recommend me to two different people he personally sought fit to best to represent me based on the information we had discussed. One Robert explained was quite a bit more expensive than the other but had over ten years of experience and the other though still very competent and professional charged less but had slightly less experience. Robert Cleland is honest, respectable, and sincere. I know that if I have any criminal defense, will, or personal injury related matters I know who to contact.

  • Not only did he help me achieve the best possible outcome with my legal matter, he was also very kind.
    I had a great experience working with Mr. Cleland. He was incredibly insightful and positive throughout our time working together. Not only did he help me achieve the best possible outcome with my legal matter, he was also very kind and easy to talk to about my situation. I would most definitely recommend Mr. Cleland to anyone looking for a lawyer with his expertise.

  • He holds his own in the court room, and I'm happy to say had a great effect upon my ultimate ruling.
    I couldn't be more grateful for the high levels of professionalism and the overall experience I had with Mr. Cleland. He has a cool and collected demeanor, but was open enough that I felt I was in good hands the entirety of my legal dilemmas. He holds his own in the court room, and I'm happy to say had a great effect upon my ultimate ruling. I would absolutely hire him again, and recommend him to any and everybody. Overall he is a fantastic lawyer.

  • Might as well put a halo on this guy.
    Words can’t even describe how honest, loyal, friendly, caring, and genuine this guy is. And if I tried I’d be here typing for a very long time. Their is absolutely nothing better that he could’ve done. The feeling I always got from Rob is that it’s not just your case. When he’s up their fighting for you; you get the feeling from him that he’s almost fighting for his own freedom and not just yours. And that if it goes wrong then he’s the one suffering the consequences. That’s when I knew that I could put everything in his hands and he wouldn’t let me down. As a result I was walking a free man and it only took the jury 15 min to come with a verdict. Rob is not only an extraordinary, amazing person and lawyer. But he has turned into one of my best friends, and no matter what you can’t put a price on any of that. Might as well put a halo on this guy. If anyone would like to know my story. Give him a call, he’s be more than happy to tell ya. Love you brother.
