Robert S. Sunshine



In 2002, Robert made the decision to leave a partnership with a large, national New York City based litigation firm and form the Law Office of Robert S. Sunshine, P.C. With over 25 years of legal practice Robert S. Sunshine has handled numerous complex litigation matters and has been consulted countless times by clients, corporations and lawyers throughout the nation. It was his belief then and continues to be his belief now, that everyone is entitled to affordable, high quality legal services and to be represented by a skilled, aggressive, yet caring litigator who has but one objective in mind – the success of their case. It is because of this dedication that all clients have complete and uninhibited access to his services on a 24 hour a day, 7 day a week basis even if it means responding to case inquiries in the middle of the night.

Robert started his legal career with hard work and perseverance. That hard work has continued to this day and explains why he is so often considered the best in Rockland County, and to many, the best in New York. Robert is often asked to correct the mistakes made by other attorneys, and a good portion of the practice involves proceedings commenced to correct those mistakes. It’s his experience and reputation that sets The Law Office of Robert S. Sunshine, P.C. apart, and how it can help you be successful with your litigation matter.
