About Me

In addition to serving as a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Panel Trustee, Rob spends the majority of his time focusing on creditor and debtor representation in consumer and corporate bankruptcy. Rob has extensive experience in a range of legal areas including civil litigation, contract drafting/disputes, domestic relations, consumer litigation, and real property. As an active lawyer in Denver, Rob continues to represent individuals and businesses in a range of matters in order to continually learn and gain practical experience so as to better manage the firm and represent his clients.


 


Rob is a voracious reader of historical fiction. Anything written by James Michener and David Gemmell are among his favorites. Bernard Cornwell, Conn Iggulden, and Jim Butcher (not really historical fiction, but entertaining) also rank high on his list. Rob enjoys wilderness excursions with his wife, 3 children, and their yellow lab. His hobbies are many and include reading and writing, family time, outdoor activities including fly fishing, skiing, mountain biking, paintball, and gardening.
