About Me 

Experience

     Rob Wisner represents banks and other financial services providers ranging from community banks to large multi-state holding companies and finance companies.  His advice and unique expertise on consumer lending forms and procedures are sought not only by financial institutions, but also by forms companies, other law firms and regulators.
