  • Curtis S. Alva

    Bob is that very rare lawyer who is not only one of the finest commercial litigators, but is also a highly talented trial lawyer. I worked with him on several complex cases where we were opposed by world-class attorneys and Bob was always a match for whoever we faced. He is esteemed by bench, admired by co-counsel, and respected by opponents.
