About Me

Robert G. (Bob) Teeter, Eagle Scout, US Army Veteran, Detroit Police Officer, attended Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan where he earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Police Administration in 1972, followed by his Juris Doctor degree cum laude in 1976.  While in law school he was also awarded the Outstanding Oral Advocacy Award for First Year Moot Court, two American Jurisprudence Awards, and a Silver Key Scholarship Award.


 


After graduation from law school, Bob resigned from the police department and moved to Tyler, Texas where he was admitted to the Texas Bar and served as an Assistant Criminal District Attorney before going into private practice.  He joined Shell Oil Company in 1985 and worked for the next 20 years in Houston as in-house counsel to national and international energy corporations.  In 2006 he retired from corporate practice and returned to Michigan to open his own private law practice.


 


Mr. Teeter is admitted to practice law in Texas and Michigan, is a member of the Texas, Michigan, Grand Rapids, and Mecosta-Osceola Bar Associations, and is a member of the Mecosta County Area Chamber of Commerce.
