Rob Xides has helped me with a number of legal issues, from contracts, to dealing with tenants, and even government agencies. Rob is level headed and knowledgeable. There are a lot of lawyers out there but very few have the combination of legal knowledge and compassion for the little guy that Rob has.
I hired Attorney Robert Xides in May of 2015 due to a Municipal Land Use/Zoning issue. At Xides promptly returned my calls, scheduled a meeting and met with me. He listened to my concerns and my desired outcome to resolving the issue. He is an excellent Attorney, professional and a pleasure to work with.
Robert Xides, Jr. is a very knowledgable and experienced attorney. He was extremely helpful when my husband left the corporate world to set up an environmental consulting firm. He also updated our wills and helped us create trusts to provide for our children and grandson who has special needs.
I have worked with attorneys on other cases. And, Mr. Foerster was very knowledgable, competent, and had a very strong integrity that stood out. He was very efficient and gave a lot of personal attention to my case. He also was good at explaining and keeping me informed of all matters throughout the entire process.
I recommend Mr. Xides to anyone looking for a great attorney. I consulted with him about a real estate transaction and his knowledge and expertise were obvious from the first conversation, where he offered alternatives I had not considered and explained the reasoning behind them concisely. He was very easy to communicate with, returning phone calls and emails promptly. He is friendly, trustworthy, and genuinely cares about getting the best outcome for his clients.
We needed help writing an operating agreement for our LLC that went from a sole-proprietor LLC to a three person partnership. Rob Xides was very helpful in crafting the agreement, and getting us to think about things we didn't think about on our own. He also helped us to feel confident in setting up the operating agreement with terms that worked for us, and he didn't necessarily try to coerce us into typical attorney-like contracts. He was very understanding of our goals for our partnership.
