My experience with the law firm Robert E Hornberger Esq., P.C. and in particular Christine Verbitsky was nothing short of wonderful. They took care of me every step of the way and always had my best interests first. They worked diligently and professionally to get me the best possible deal and making sure I didn’t settle for anything less. If anyone is looking to have their opinion about lawyers changed or to be treated as you should when you need a lawyer , look no further then this law firm…. Thank you so MUCH Christine and Rob..

“Rob has helped to become the happiest I have ever been in my life. He has helped be to be free from an abusive and neglectful individual. Rob made the process as easy for me as possible. He is attentive, and detail-oriented, covering ground in the stipulation that I never would have considered necessary, and now I am very grateful for. Rob is the big brother every one needs.”

— Laurie B

At arguably the most difficult time in my life, Christine helped me cope with my situation and gave me a solid basis for hope going forward. She got to know me. She understood what I wanted and helped me understand my legal options. Christine is intelligent, incredibly well-versed in the law and was able to pro-actively take the bull by the horns in caring for both my legal and emotional needs. Instead of letting things drag on, Christine stayed on top of my case and kept costs at a minimum. She was always available to me, fast, efficient, knowledgeable, and caring. I highly recommend her professional services.”
