Trustworthy and Informative

He handled one matter for me and I have continued to go back for advice over time. He is one of the few trustworthy attorneys in the South Florida area. He is quick to respond to my inquires and kept me informed of every step of the case. I especially appreciate receiving communications regarding the process of my case while it is happening, not days later.


Peer Review

These are honest and reputable family lawyers who you can trust to bill honestly and fight hard for you.



I can’t say enough about my experience with Attorney Robert Sidweber fighting my case. When you hire him, you are hiring a team of competent individuals who strive for the best outcome for you. They are thorough and responsive, and kept me informed each and every step of the legal process. My only regret is that I did not go to him first. It would have saved me a lot of time, money, and aggravation. Don’t make the same mistake I did !

He is my go to lawyer

I was referred to Bob Sidweber by my trusted CPA of 15 years, who only refers vetted, trustworthy, and competent professionals. After having Bob prepare documents for me and represent me in an unrelated case, that’s exactly the qualities he demonstrated. His advice and fair strategies saved me from a possible continuous legal battel. I was always connected to Bob immediately when he was in the office, if he was in court he would return my call while on the next break. That’s an old school quality that is almost extinct. His assistant, Wendy Erdmann really helped everything run smoothly. I also noticed that his office staff are extremely friendly and helpful. If I had a negative experience, I would tell you. His price range is normal, you get what you pay for. I am happy with the outcome of both my cases due to Bob Sidweber. He is my go to family Lawyer.


Caring, competent lawyer

I hired Bob for a divorce case that we thought would be straight forward but ended up lasting over a year. All along the way, Bob and his staff kept me informed, responded quickly to my calls, and explained the process and my options very carefully. I always felt that I was more than just a client for Bob and that he truly cared about the outcome of my situation. I was fortunate that I worked with him during a very difficult time.



I , like many of my colleagues, including my legal friends , use the internet to answer just about any question we may have concerning our local business interest, our family, our health, and to a lesser extent, LEGAL ADVICE.

Yet our Marital relations are probably the most personal and sensitive areas of our lives, especially when there are children involved. I can relay one piece of advice for sure, after a 2 year contentous martial disolution, not to mention the cost, you will know that moment the incredible value of a good lawyer. Such is the case for Bob Sidweber.

Even today, using the power the World Wide Web, the selection of a highly competent Lawyer is generally a coin toss at best. Luckily, through recomendations of some close friends, Bob was the unanmious choice. I had no idea the life long impact that selection was to have on my life.

Bob had the nescessary skills and knowledge to recognize the long term impact of the decisions we were making on my behalf. He very skillfuly and artfully guided me through the maze, to eventually
bring a fair resolution for both parties.

I would certainly recommend Bob Sidweber in any Marital and divorce Issues.


Bob was what I needed.

I needed a divorce attorney who could handle the most difficult, controlling, and narcissistic ex spouse to be.  I also wanted an attorney who is highly ethical and lives by a strong moral code.

Bob Sidweber is that attorney.

Not only did he keep me calm during highly emotional times, but he gave me complete clarity and strength during every “gas light” tactic my ex-spouse tried on me during the divorce.

Bob made sure that my settlement reflected what the law dictates and not what my controlling ex-spouse thought was fair, which would have only been a sliver of what I thankfully ended up with.

Bob Sidweber is a very honest, fair, diligent, thorough, and deeply committed professional to have on your team.  I highly recommend him.

The Best Lawyer You Could Ask For

Mr. Sidweber is one of the most intelligent and sophisticated individuals I have ever come in contact with, which is why he is he is highly respected amongst his community. He has been my lawyer for many years, getting me through my very long, intense, and painful divorce. He has consistently stuck by my side while my ex has gone through a numerous amount of lawyers.

Bob’s skill set is beyond impeccable. His strategic and analytical mindset, along with his natural persuasiveness, has successfully won every single one of my legal battles. With him by your side, you never have to worry about feeling stressed or intimated walking into the court room or facing your soon-to-be ex with his or her opposing attorney because Bob’s resilience and confidence will rest assure you that you are in the best hands possible.

I always felt so comfortable consulting with Bob; he always makes the time to pay attention and care for each and every one of his clients by promptly responding with diligence and thoroughness. I wouldn’t want anyone else to fight for me and my children, and I can honestly say I trust him with my life. Just know that if you not only have the chance, but the privilege to have Bob represent you, consider yourself a very fortunate person.

I hired Bob Sidweber after interviewing several attorneys. Bob and his team kept me informed throughout the process and I always had my phone calls returned. Bob was able to draft complex legal documents and relayed their meaning to me with great patience. If you are in need of an articulate professional, I would highly recommend Bob Sidweber and his staff.
