I retained Bob Steinberg as an expert witness for the defense in an attorney fee application arising under 42 UCS 1988. I selected Bob not only because of his years of experience in reviewing fee applications as a Federal Magistrate Judge, but also because of his years of experience as a private practitioner submitting fee applications on behalf of plaintiffs. Bob thoroughly analyzed all of the issues and provided insight as to how best to counter plaintiffs’ arguments in support of their fee petition. He was available to meet in person as well as to discus issues over the phone. I was extremely impressed with the thorough report he prepared supported by numerous exhibits. In this case, Bob was called upon to testify at a hearing and express his opinions on various issues related to the fee application. He was an extremely credible and knowledgeable witness. I would retain Bob again and certainly would recommend him to others.
As a judge, Bob Steinberg was instrumental in mediating numerous thorny issues that arose during the course of a lawsuit I was involved with against several governmental defendants. He was extremely effective because all the parties and their attorneys trusted him and saw him as a quick learner who understood their own concerns (beyond just the litigation). As a mediator today, Bob brings those same skills and more to any problem he is given. I retained Bob as an expert witness and was thoroughly impressed with his expertise and knowledge."
