  • Scott A. Brenneck

    I endorse this lawyer because he is dedicated to his clients and helping them achieve the best outcome possible. He is thorough in his preparation and relentless in his efforts. I have had the fortune of working with Rob and I witnessed first hand his ability within the federal criminal defense system and his compassion for his clients. Rob is well respected in our legal community as he should be.
