Client Reviews
The emotionally charged issues that arise in divorce cases evoke very different responses from judges who see many such cases than from parties who are embroiled in them. To be truly effective, a family law attorney must understand both perspectives--and the written law as well. Rob Wellon has a deep understanding of all of those things. As a consequence, he is a wise counselor and an effective advocate. He is a true leader of the family law bar. A Quote from Chris
Rob was highly recommended to me from a family friend as I was contemplating divorce after a long and difficult marriage. This was unfamiliar territory for me from the start; however, his paralegals and office staff were welcoming and professional from the beginning until the end. I had been looking for a lawyer with integrity, honesty and sound knowledge of the divorce laws as we were up against a difficult opposing party. At our initial meeting... Sally
Rob Wellon represents his clients aggressively but he is also the voice of reason. His years of experience as a family lawyer are undeniable when representing his clients. I would enthusiastically refer him to any person who sought an expert in this field. Marian
Attorney Robert Wellon gave me a first-rate performance when it came to my divorce. From the first meeting and throughout my divorce he was a warm and kind gentleman. He asked me what outcome I wanted from the divorce and from that moment going forward I only had to relax and let him litigate my case. He offered me such conformality and tranquility during a time of uncertainty. He has outstanding strategic capabilities, ensuring a successful outcome. He’s a highly respected lawyer... Vivian
