Robertson and Robertson are the most caring, knowledgeable and helpful group that I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with. They made what could have been a stressful traumatic situation a smooth process. They handled every aspect of my case so that I could heal and return to a normal life. Their office staff is above and beyond professional and courteous. Vera made sure I always understood the process and that any questions I had were answered in full. They are the best in the entire area.

Wynnette C.

Mr. Robertson and his associates helped me navigate through this experience. I had a devastating accident in December 2017. The accident not only caused me physical damage but also financial damage. Robertson & Robertson helped me recoup my losses so that I could regain the quality of life I had before the accident. They kept me informed every step of the way and whenever I called them, I received a prompt response. I highly recommend the law firm of Robertson & Robertson!

Robin N.

I personally recommend Scott Robertson's office to anyone in need of an attorney. I work with him on a professional level from a medical facility and have seen firsthand how his office is run. His level of professionalism sets the precedence for many. The highest compliment you can give is the gift of a referral, and I have referred family members and friends in need of an attorney to this office. At his office you will not be "just a number, " but his office will actually know who you are by name. You do not give them your "case number" as so many attorneys require, but they actually know YOU. The office staff is also friendly, knowledgeable, courteous...just wonderful. This office absolutely is an asset to our community!

Not always the way you want to meet great people, but that's exactly what happened. The team here went above and beyond my expectations. From handling the case as professionally and personally as possible to remaining in contact the entire process, I had peace of mind that everything was handled. I will be sure to refer your business to anyone I hear in need.

Angela R.

From the moment we walked into their office to the regretful (that our wonderful meetings together were over) last goodbye we experienced nothing but sincere and continued compassion and caring. Mr. Robertson made us feel that he had all the bases covered, and he did! He was always available to answer any concerns or questions and, in the end, far exceeded our greatest expectations. He turned an unfortunate event around. We would recommend he and his office family to anyone that is looking for the best attorney on the shore!

I am tremendously thankful for the sheer level of expertise and professionalism that I've witnessed from Robertson & Robertson. Scott and his associates put my wife and me at ease from the very beginning, and they were always very generous in sharing their insight and experience. They patiently walked us through the process, were always available to answer our questions, and gave us guidance every step of the way. I am thoroughly impressed by Mr. Robertson and the exquisite service of his company and, thanks to all of their hard work, we've been blessed with the best possible outcome we could have ever hoped for. 10 stars out of 5! I've told all my family and friends and I would definitely recommend this law firm to anyone looking for the best personal injury attorney!

This is one of the best law firms around and so organized, thorough, friendly, understanding, and loyal to their clients. I was in a severe car accident that almost ended my life. They took good care of everything while I was trying to heal from being in a critical condition state. I guarantee that if anyone chooses J Scott Robertson and Robertson & Robertson law firm they will be satisfied because I was. Through all this we became friends and he told me if I ever need anything don’t hesitate to call him. Thank you for your support the 3 years I dealt with you for the life changing accident I went through and the way you treated me!

Sherry B.

After being in a car accident, things just got too overwhelming for me to keep dealing with on my own. The constant phone calls, questions, and having to keep repeating myself over and over again with adjusters and insurance companies got to be way too much! A friend recommended Robertson & Robertson and it was the best thing I ever did! One meeting with Scott and Vera and everything was smooth sailing. They handled everything!! So welcoming. So easy to talk to. So comforting. I have never been through anything like this before, and they made this entire process so easy. Scott kept in constant touch every step of the way to keep me updated and fully aware of what was going on. I highly recommend Scott and his staff. I pray I will never need a lawyer again for myself or my family due to a car accident, however if I do, I feel comfort in knowing I have one that I can count on.

Cheri D.

I went to Robertson & Robertson after being in a head on collision. My sister and I had multiple serious injuries. The medical bills were piling up and the insurance companies were very confusing. Scott, Vera & David did an amazing job! They were very compassionate and professional. We were kept informed of everything along the way. We received a much larger settlement than we expected. I highly recommend the friendly experts at Robertson & Robertson.
