Tough Attorney for a Tough Situation

I am a male in my thirties and was going through a very contentious 17 month divorce and needed to retain an attorney that I could trust. I was looking for an individual that knew the law, was aggressive and competent in front of a judge/commissioner. I came across Mr. Kaufman and he proved to be just that. Divorce is a tough time in one’s life and Robert helped reassure me throughout this challenging time. His knowledge of the law (all the ins and outs and trust me, there are a lot) helped me secure my two young children in my custody. Thanks to Robert, my 5 and 7 year old boys live with me 80% of the time I am the primary parent in their lives and have the pleasure of waking up with them under my roof every morning. There is no monetary value that can be put on top of that. Thank you Robert!

Great Attorney

Bob is a great attorney who is not only an expert with a sound legal knowledge but he also helped me kept perspective throughout the case holistically. He is a very good listener and also does not hesitate to ask tough questions, which really helps one to look things through a different lens especially when you are going through a difficult phase throughout the divorce. He is very accessible and responds in a timely manner. I will highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to hire an expert attorney with good listening ears and a great human being.

Exceptionally Capable, Insightful, Experienced, and is Simply A Good Human

It’s hard to express credibly in writing just how positive my experience was with Bob. Like so many clients, I was totally ignorant to the legal process around divorce and (inadvertently) made some decisions that weren’t helpful to Bob. In the end, he always had a great attitude and point for point resolved my case in my benefit to a greater degree than I had hoped.

Looking back, I can see that Bob has a great feel for timing and nuance. Still he’s not a mind reader. It is important regardless who your attorney is to provide clear and organized information/documents pertaining to your case. A concise summary never hurts, either.

Here’s the crazy part…I retained Bob under a legal insurance plan that pays extremely low. At no point, did I sense that my case was less of a priority than any other. As a matter of fact at this point, I know he applies himself fully for every client. In this regard, I applaud his integrity and commitment to providing top-notch legal services to the community.
I would recommend Bob for any family law case without hesitation.

The Finest Attorney I Have Ever Worked With!

I consider myself extremely lucky that I was able to hire Robert Kaufman to represent me halfway through an extremely contentious divorce. My first attorney resigned after one year and no progress at all on the case. Mr. Kaufman took control of the case and brought it to an excellent conclusion, while protecting, defending, advising, and helping me through the worst experience of my life. He is an exceptional attorney, has a complete and comprehensive knowledge of the law, is a bulldog in court and arbitration, and an extremely nice man. (I was amazed at his abilities in court and arbitration!) With Bob’s assistance, I made it through this horrible event in my life and came out the other side with an extremely fair settlement that will enable me to live my life and enhance the lives of my children.

Just for the record, my ex-wife and her attorney did not want me to spend time with my children, wanted everything I own and everything I earn, were full of accusations, and would not discuss or negotiate anything at all with my first attorney for almost a year. They fabricated issues and they were not remotely interested in being fair….they only wanted to win. There was no basis for any of this and my first attorney made zero headway with the case. No mediation, no arbitration…nothing…just arguments, obfuscation, delays, poor advice, and huge attorney bills. With the clarity that only comes from retrospect, I can now see that my case was totally mismanaged. I felt totally and completely abused by the legal system and the divorce industry….and I still believe that was what happened.

Once Bob became involved, we were able to move forward and settle the case within a few months with a 50-50 parenting plan (which is what I always wanted) and a financial settlement that was extremely fair to both sides. I would have never believed it, but now…my ex-wife and I are speaking to each other, getting along, and co-parenting our children…although she is terrible at that. 🙂 I am convinced that without Bob, I would have ended up at trial, taking my chances at the whim of the judge, and it would not have turned out nearly as well as it did. Being a man, in King County, Washington seems to be a real disadvantage in a divorce. It is not an experience I would force on my worst enemy, yet Bob was able to guide me through it, protect my rights, and help me protect my children and their lives.

Bob is an excellent attorney and an outstanding advocate. He is personable, kind, understanding, patient, and always followed up on the many, many details of a very complicated, drawn-out, and contentious case. His advice was always good and well thought out. He helped me through this more than anyone else in my life and I would be honored to actually call him my friend. I intend to utilize Bob for any future legal issue or question I may encounter.

I would highly recommend Bob Kaufman and you should consider yourself lucky if you are able to hire him to handle your case. You will never find a finer attorney, a better advocate, or a nicer man.

Fantastic Divorce Attorney

Mr. Kaufman did an excellent job handling my difficult divorce and child custody case. His knowledge of divorce law was impressive and he very efficiently worked my case through the Washington court system including the many hearings and the 5-day trial for my case. I don’t understand the one bad review on this site. It sounds like that guy expected the judicial system to work fast with one-day turnaround times. That is definitely not the case. Unfortunately, these things can take a lot of time.

Mr. Kaufman wrote excellent, well thought-out motions and trial documents and he was fantastic questioning witnesses at my trial. He also tried my case with honesty and integrity and he never tried any of the dishonest tricks the opposing counsel attempted. His experience really shined and I definitely would want to retain Mr. Kaufman again if the need arises.

Professional And A Very Caring Person

It’s been a long time since Mr. Kaufman handled my divorce, but I always thought he was very good. He was always calm and confident and that helped me feel that way too. He didn’t do a bunch of extra stuff so he could charge me more. He never over reacted and always listened to me. I’ve had other attorneys who were always creating a flurry of paperwork with no real results (other than a bill). I’ve just recommended him to a friend, which is why I happened upon this website.

Good Divorce Attorney

Bob Kaufman was recommended to me through my work benefits. I found him to be very knowledgeable, caring and compassionate. My separation/divorce was amicable, so I mostly just needed Mr. Kaufman for advice and reviewing/filing the paperwork. He kept me very informed via email and answered any questions I had promptly. He worked well with the other attorney. He did exactly as I wanted and made sure that my best interests were represented. I would use him again and would recommend him to others for their separation/divorce.

Thorough professional, highly experienced, excellent representation

Divorce can be a truly horrific experience. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have been referred to Robert Kaufman in late 2011 when I faced such circumstances. He is first and foremost professional in demeanor and actions, and well-versed in financial matters. During our first meeting, he adeptly (and patiently) listened, inquired and thoroughly assessed my circumstances. Within a matter of minutes, he had outlined and constructed legal next steps, including recommended actions on my part. As an active father of two sons, the custody and wellbeing of my children was of major importance. While in the end I did not achieve the parenting plan agreement I sought, I can genuinely say that Mr. Kaufman was extremely knowledgeable and versed in child custody law, and put forth every possible effort on my behalf, leveraging every avenue afforded by WA family law towards achieving the desired result. In hindsight years later, I can say that his counsel maximized to the greatest extent possible the residential time I have today with my sons. At no time did he make promises or guarantees, which I appreciated. He will clearly state objectives and strategies, and if you ask a difficult question, he will answer it if possible, but also clearly state when he could not do so in a professional capacity. I have contacted Mr. Kaufman on one or two occasions over the years to answer odd parenting plan questions that come up, and in every encounter his demeanor is welcoming, remembers myself and my children, and is quickly able to retrieve any and all critical documentation and respond in thorough detail.
While I highly recommend Mr. Kaufman from the vantage point of a hard-working, engaged father, I will close by saying with confidence that he would also equally represent a hard-working and engaging mother in similar circumstance. WA family law is a treacherous ocean to navigate – Mr. Kaufman is the captain you need at the helm of your ship. You may or may not get the result you desire, but his stable, knowledgeable, insightful counsel is your best option.

Confident, competent and efficient – highly recommended

Robert has been my attorney for approximately two years dealing with a divorce from an ambiguous on-off relationship. Robert’s manner is reassuring while he explains what to expect and what the law requires every step of the way. With an opposing counsel who was often emotionally antagonistic, Robert stayed the course. Confidently responding to opposing counsel while remaining in control. Divorce is not always a straightforward process and in my case Robert made things go relatively smoothly by representing me superbly. I recommend Robert without reservation.

Impressive Attorney

I am Robert B, I am a single father with full custody of my 3 children.

Bob took on my case during a very difficult time, my prior attorney had decided to stop practicing law right in the middle of our trial. Bob took over the case on a short notice. I was blessed to have found Bob and blessed he had the time to take on my case. He showed professionalism and compassion for me, not just becuase I was a client either. I would recommend Bob to anyone looking for a skilled expert in family law.

Thank you

ONE CLASS ACT

Right out of the gate I explained to Bob that if he took this case he’d be walking into a psychological thicket. Bob didn’t even flinch, 29 insane months later of 2 unsettled mediations, numerous delays, denied motions, conferences with judges, coaching the opposing counsel, walking out of a disorderly deposition, (a first) & 3 days of trial. Bob not only kept his cool during these many absurdities but plowed through shining with his outstanding knowledge of law and presentation!
The judge actually awarded me more than what we’d asked for!
Bob Kaufman is one class act. Don’t hesitate to hire him.

During this process Bob provided outstanding legal guidance as well as ensuring that my legal cost were efficiently managed for me throughout the process. He was also very responsive via e mail and phone whenever I had questions and compassionate when I was stressed. Bob made sure that I end up with outcome that would be the best for me and my children. I felt that he was caring and kept my family’s interest his top priority.

Compassionate and competent divorce attorney

Bob was my divorce attorney through a difficult divorce. He helped me through the initial hearing, temporary settlement, mediation and trial. The divorce was hands down the most unpleasant experience of my life. Made worse by my adversarial ex-wife and her shark of an attorney (who made me realize why lawyers are so widely despised and wonder what kind of karma awaits him). Throughout it all, Bob was a calm, compassionate and level-headed presence. He was responsive to my inquiries and advocated for me forcefully when needed. The outcome from the trial could have been better but I have accepted that it is what it is given the legal system and lawyers like my ex-wife’s attorney who are willing to lie outright and exploit the system with no scruples. I went into the process wanting to do the right thing and come to a just and equitable settlement with my ex-wife. Bob was the right attorney for me and for what I wanted. Even after the divorce decree, Bob has been quick to respond to my email inquiries. I would definitely recommend him.

A great divorce attorney

Mr Kaufman is not only a great attorney he is also a great man. I was caged myself in a bad marriage for years before I met him. Divorce was my only option but unfortunately I was not making enough money to afford an attorney; I did not have any access to our family finances and I was very hopeless. After a research, I had made an appointment with Mr Kaufman for a free consultation. As an immigrant, English was my second language but the legal terms felt like a third language in the beginning. He was very patient with me. He listened to me attentively, explained all the steps that needed to be taken and most importantly he accepted to get my divorce case without getting paid beforehand. Our divorce case eventually became more complicated because my ex- husband started another case in our home country. Handling two divorce cases in two countries was really stressful and challenging for me but Mr Kaufman was always there whenever I needed his help. He was always prompt to return my calls, knowledgeable to answer my questions in a great details and trustworthy to discuss my options honestly. I felt like my voice was heard the first time in years by someone who can help me because of his representation. We got divorced in the US with a 80/20 ratio on my favor. This result gave me an opportunity to start over my life after the age of 52. The other divorce case that my ex husband started in our home country has been still going on. The most impressive part was that when I needed his assistance after our divorce was finalized in the US he continued returning my calls promptly and after reviewing my documents he offered his help to handle the issues. I feel so lucky to have him on my side throughout the hardest time in my life. If you are looking for an attorney who is knowledgeable, trustworthy and dependable stop searching; Mr Kaufman is the one. Thank very much again Mr Kaufman!

Dedicated and Pleasant to Work With

I doubt there are any easy divorces, and hiring a lawyer can be a serious leap-of-faith for anyone.
That being said I will testify that from my first visit with Bob I walked out of his office feeling relief and confidence that I was in understanding, compassionate and competent hands. He had the needed experience and skills to assure my interests were fully represented. My divorce was timely, thorough and as painless as can be expected. Thanks Bob.

Awesome professional. Knowledgeable. Confident. Responsive.

Robert represented me during a drawn out divorce. Robert is superb. He shows empathy when it is needed and has a confident and knowledgeable manner. Robert sticks to the facts even when emotions are running high. In my experience Robert is able to communicate with opposing counsel in a calm, collected way while taking the high ground, especially with counsel that may themselves operate with too much emotion. Robert also operates his practice with the highest of ethics in terms of billing. I highly recommend Mr. Kaufman.

Mr. Kaufman: Outstanding Attorney with Experience, Talent, Proven Record of Success (& Soul!). Valiantly Fights for YOUR Rights!

I was raised in a conservative culture. My marriage was wrought with abuse; and the saga continued, for over a decade, post-divorce. My naivety during the divorce cost me dearly. There were a multitude of problems relating to child support, residential schedules, property settlements, and other matters. Despite the overt hostility of my ex-spouse, I tried to resolve the issues amicably – but it fell on deaf ears. As a last resort, I finally agreed to approaching an attorney for help. I was referred to attorney extraordinaire, Mr. Robert Kaufman, by a friend who lost a case to him. My friend was highly impressed with Mr. Kaufman; and recognized his innate talent.

When I first met Mr. Kaufman, I expressed fear of retaliation from my ex-spouse. Mr. Kaufman was empathetic, evinced cultural sensitivity, and vested himself in fighting for the our legal rights. Mr. Kaufman went the extra mile to comprehend the complexities of my culture. He went above and beyond to protect and ensure the safety of my children and me. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of having a outstanding attorney, like Mr. Kaufman, who unafraid for to fight for the rights of people from different walks of life. He is caring, compassionate, extraordinarily talented, and works hard for his clients. I appreciated his approach to placating familial issues on amicable terms. Mr. Kaufman’s stately and tacit demeanor is one of his greatest strengths. Do not mistake his calm trait for compliance. He dauntlessly fends for the rights of his clients in litigation matters – and has a long track record of successes to prove his mettle. As in my case, my ex-spouse retorted, with the aid of an unscrupulous attorney, to false allegations and character assassination. Mr. Kaufman deftly defied and halted the disgraceful antics. I have worked with Mr. Kaufman for nearly two years (the legal issues pertaining to my divorce were complex and tedious). He championed all of the aforementioned litigation matters ACING every case in our favor!

Mr. Kaufman’s technical veracity while upholding the dignity of his client is remarkable. He always kept me up-to-date about the proceedings during each litigation. He always made time to explain legalese, recommended options, and inspired me to be in control of my legal rights. Communication was seamless and timely. I was grateful for not having to deal with sticker shock because he does not nickel and dime clients. Mr. Kaufman could charge astronomical rates and still run a roaring business. However, he has made it his mission to crusade for those who are in dire need of legal help– he is dedicated to his art (i.e., Family Law).

Mr. Kaufman’s talent is undeniable (and supported by 35+ years of experience). Needless to say, because of Mr. Kaufman’s unwavering support, extensive knowledge, experience in with working with people from all walks of life, we WON every single case. I will forever remain in his debt for protecting my children. I am indebted to Mr. Kaufman for his guidance, patience and support through the prolix journey.

I unequivocally recommend Mr. Kaufman to those seeking an elite warrior to tide them through legal battles!

Supportive of my divorce needs within cost constraints

Handled my long-distance divorce in a professional manner, carefully explained my options and filed appropriate paperwork. Considered my finances and circumstances and made suggestions suitable to my situation, weighing reward vs. expenses to help me make informed decisions about my case. Negotiated with opposing counsel to reach an agreement suitable to both parties without protracted court battles. Bob treated me like a friend and showed genuine concern, helping me protect my rights and get through a difficult time. His experience and compassion were evident from our first conversation and I am glad to have had him looking out for me. I recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone in need of a good divorce lawyer.

Knowlegeable Partner for my Divorce

I hired Bob Kaufman upon the recommendation of a contract law attorney I know. Throughout the process, Bob kept me informed and helped me get my divorce settled. There was a long time where my ex-husband would not respond to the service by mail that I had requested to try to keep things more amicable, and Bob helped me move the case forward to a successful resolution by advising me on doing formal process service, and working with my ex-husband’s first attorney and then his second attorney when he changed representation to get the case back on track. When my ex husband’s lawyer kept trying to postpone the trial date by a year, even though we should have been working on a settlement out of court, Bob worked with the opposing attorney and the judge to postpone only by one month. When it came time to mediate the settlement for both finances as well as custody of our kids, Bob gave me a detailed rundown of how the process would work from a mechanics and legal perspective. I felt well-prepared when we reached the mediation office, and as a result, we were able to agree on everything in less than 6 hours. As the major breadwinner who had most of the assets (retirement and stock), I felt I reached a fair deal with my ex-husband and that something that could have been fairly contentious went as painlessly as possible, due in large part by Bob’s preparations and experience. I am grateful for Bob’s steady presence, his respect for my wishes in remaining as amicable as possible with my ex, even when my ex and his attorney were trying to slow things down, and his knowledge for how to get the case moving and settled. I must also say that Bob’s patience with me since I travel frequently for work was also a great help, and the fact that I could trust everything in his capable hands was one less major stress for me to contend with in the already-messy situation that one finds oneself in when a marriage is ending and there are children involved. My divorce was finalized yesterday, and even then, Bob was noting that the quit claim deed notary seal was outside the borders of the document, and so he sent a fresh one for my ex-husband to sign. That level of attention to detail in getting everything in order, even after the case is supposedly closed, is just one example of how great Bob was to have in my corner. It is clear that he takes pride in his work, and his experience was reassuring to me at every step from the initial filing, to the various developments in the case, all the way to the final filing. My first marriage ended with divorce in another state, so I have experience with other lawyers who are not nearly as good or as dedicated and professional. Not that I’m interested in getting married a third time, but if I do, I will ask Bob to write my pre-nup for me, whether or not I am still living in Washington. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Bob Kaufman to anyone getting a divorce.

A great attorney for a tough time

Mr. Kaufman was recommended to me by a colleague and I am grateful for that reference. Beyond his expert knowledge of the law, Bob was an even better counselor. There were many times during my divorce where I became “fired up” about something, ready to send a salvo in the direction of my ex. Bob would take the time to understand the point of contention, then offer very sage advice about how to best handle the situation to achieve the ultimate outcome I desired.

The other thing I really appreciated about Bob was his willingness to accommodate my style of working..which is to use a lot of email and occasional phone calls. I cannot be sure if this was easier or harder for him to handle, but it didn’t matter – he adapted to me, not the other way around. I haven’t dealt with a lot of attorneys, but I feel pretty certain that this adaptability is somewhat unique.

Finally, and most importantly, he is very knowledgeable and experienced in the area of family law. While my divorce was not particularly contentious, there were several troublesome areas of disagreement. Each of these were resolved satisfactorily from my perspective, with a minimum amount of fuss (read: less $ spent on lawyers).
