Robert Stanley is a Partner at Rosenfeld. He has been practicing exclusively in the area of family law for nearly two decades, and he is a Certified Family Law Specialist through the California Board of Legal Specialization. Prior to joining Rosenfeld, Robert was a partner in the premier original Beverly Hills boutique family law firm, Jaffe and Clemens, where he practiced for 13 years until that firm closed. In 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021, Robert was one of only 30 family law attorneys in the state of California selected and ranked in the Chambers Guide to the Leading High Net Worth lawyers. In 2020, Robert was also named to the Lawdragon 500 Leading Family Lawyers list of “the nation’s best advisors for divorce, separation, asset division, and custody issues.” Robert was also listed in the Southern California Super Lawyers list for 2020 and 2021 and has been selected to the Super Lawyers list again for 2022.
Robert represents high earners and high net worth individuals in complex and sensitive family law matters. His clients include high profile entertainers and athletes, successful corporate executives, start-up entrepreneurs, and stay-at-home parents who rely on Robert as a trusted advisor and tireless advocate. Robert is involved in all forms of relationship termination matters, including “traditional” opposite-sex divorces, as well as the dissolution of non-marital relationships, domestic partnerships, and same-sex marriages. Robert also negotiates and drafts a variety of relationship agreements including cohabitation agreements, pre-partnership agreements, pre-marital agreements, and post-nuptial agreements. (Robert is a co-author of the CEB treatise, "California Domestic Partnerships and Same-Sex Marriage.") In all of his work, Robert strives to deliver efficiencies for his clients while still obtaining excellent results.
In addition to his hard work for Rosenfeld's family law clients, Robert gives back to the community. He is honored to serve on the Board of Directors for the Los Angeles Center for Law and Justice, a non-profit which provides essential family law and other legal services to survivors of domestic violence. He also serves on the Los Angeles County Bar Association's Family Law Executive Committee.
