    Anyone meeting Bob Giannini will be immediately impressed by his greatest asset: honesty. Bob will always shoot straight with the people he deals with, and exudes integrity in everything that he does. Bob's military background also imbued him with an iron will and a work ethic and "attention to detail" that I have seldom seen in many practitioners in my business. When you add these rare qualities to a high intellect, you are going to find a truly great attorney. Great man, great friend, great attorney all rolled into one person.

    If my firm is unable to handle a case due to a conflict I usually refer it to Bob Giannini. No once in the years that I ahve been doing this, have I heard one single complaint. Bob is a very smart man who cares very much for his clients. I am pleased to call him my colleague and thrilled to call him my friend.
