  • Gregory B. Fell

    It has been my pleasure to litigate as co-counsel with Robert. He is a tireless advocate for his clients. His attention to detail is unmatched. You won't find a better litigator. His trial skills, particularly oral argument, are tremendous. Everything he does is with uncompromising integrity.
