He derives great satisfaction from guiding his clients through the often confusing maze of financial and legal decisions to create plans that ensure the well-being of their families and the accomplishment of cherished family goals.

While studying law at the University of Arizona in Tucson, RobRoy served as a probate law clerk in the Superior Court of Arizona. There, he observed on a daily basis the frustration and delay that families commonly encounter when forced to work through state court systems to handle even routine legal matters that might have been avoided through proper estate planning. Additionally, RobRoy has personally experienced the frustration that can result from the traditional (and what he considers broken) estate planning model that far too many attorneys currently employ. As he watched his own parents deal with the devastating effects of Alzheimer's-like dementia in his father, it became all too clear that the "estate planning" done by their attorney was little more than one-size-fits-all legal form production. Family wealth preservation can, and must be, much more than that.
With this background, RobRoy became highly motivated to search for and implement a truly effective model for preserving family monetary and values-based wealth upon the incapacitation or death of loved ones. Over time, RobRoy has adopted unique methods of family wealth planning designed to operate smoothly, effectively - and wherever possible - outside of the public court systems, thus maintaining the privacy and efficiency of family wealth transfers that should exist during these times of greatest vulnerability for families.
RobRoy is a member of Wealth Counsel, the State Bar of Utah, the Utah Valley Estate Planning Council, and the Estate Planning Section of the Utah Bar. He also currently serves as the Chairperson of the Utah Bar Elder Law Section, and is the Chair-elect of the Solo, Small Firm, and Rural Practice Section of the Utah Bar.
RobRoy regularly provides educational presentations on a variety of estate planning topics including Emergency Legal Planning for Families with Minor Children, Advance Health Care Directives, Veterans Benefits Planning, and other related topics. RobRoy limits his law practice to estate planning and related matters because he is passionate about helping families create happy and secure futures.
