We Understand the Art of War Divorce

Ready to Fight?

Mississippi Divorce and Family Law is All We Do.

Are you a little afraid? How could you not be after what you have been through. Famous boxing manager and trainer Constantine D’Amato said that the hero and the coward both feel the same thing –fear. But the hero uses his fear and projects it onto his opponent. The coward will run. You are not a coward and you will stand tall in the face of adversity. Let’s be honest. You are going to hate the process of divorce, no matter how necessary it may be. But if you choose to suffer a little now, you may just live the rest of your life as a winner, a conqueror and to keep with the boxing theme, a title holder. Don’t sit back and let life happen to you and wonder at the end of your journey what you might have become if you were willing to take a chance.

D’Amato trained Hall of Fame boxers, but the lawyers of Robertson + Easterling champion the interests of Mississippians faced with the possibility of divorce and other family challenges. Every world class athlete has a coach, and that is exactly what you need right now. Someone on your team with perspective who can stand outside the ring and guide you to success.

I’ve had the privilege to work with both Craig and Matt and can say they both are outstanding to work with. From the moment I walked into their offices to finalizing my legal issues to questions that come up periodically they are always available and able to offer excellent legal advice. Would recommend them without hesitation.

We used Robertson & Easterling finalized 5 adoptions. The staff is wonderful and craig goes above and beyond to make sure your experience is smooth and worry free. We will definitely use them again and would recommend them to any family.

I trust Craig Robertson & Matt Easterling. These guys know what they are doing and are highly respected in the Family Law arena. I consistently recommended this group and always received huge thanks from clients that have worked with R+E.

Child custody/guardianship case. He told us what to expect, how to deal with it. Takes care of details. As issues have arisen over time, he (or his firm) have kept us on top of things. His strong suit is in the courtroom. He knows the law and has the confidence to carry it through. Would recommend him highly.

Who knew that family law attorneys could be pro-family? Matt and Craig are for their clients. They want what’s best for you. If that means having you work harder to stay married, they’re for it. If it means having difficult conversations to expose irrational thought processes, they have them. These guys are interested in the person that walks in the door not the check book in their pocket. I appreciate the time they spent with me. They help me understand my options and how they would potentially affect all parties involved. Thank you R+E!

Robertson & Easterling are simply the very best in their field!! I hired Matt for my divorce, and it was the best decision for me and my situation. On the very first phone call, Cassie put me at ease with her compassion and care. From start to finish the level of detailed knowledge, professionalism, warmth, and above and beyond service, are what make this firm a standout. More importantly, they possess a very high level of integrity, honor and trustworthiness, making them, in my opinion, priceless and invaluable. You are in good hands with them, and I highly recommend Robertson & Easterling!

I just wanted to thank you for all of your hard work in helping to finalize the child support settlement. You did an excellent job, and I would highly recommend you to anyone seeking expert legal advice.

Matthew Easterling was the epitome of both professionalism and compassion as he helped our family during an absolute legal crisis. Our case was unique in many aspects; including the fact that a criminal court component was involved. He not only handled our family court issues wonderfully, but he was an asset to our criminal attorney in those proceedings as well.

During the darkest days of my life I was referred to Matt Easterling by a family member. He represented me in a very complicated custody case and divorce. And then again when the situation got worse. I was being attacked at every angle and I felt like Matt came to my rescue. He worked endlessly on my case to help me get the results that I was happy and comfortable with. I felt he was very knowledgeable and always felt like I was in good hands. I would not only recommend him, but highly recommend him to anyone in need. Thanks, Matt! For everything!

Thanks for everything you did to make this divorce as painless as possible. As I said in the beginning, I wanted it my way or I would not be happy. Today, I walked out of your office with a smile on my face. I never thought I would get everything I wanted. If it wasn’t for my faith in God and my trust in you, I do not know how I would have made it to today. Again, thank you for doing such a great job! Hope we can meet on better terms in the future.
