Robert Francis Gruler Jr.

About me

Robert F. Gruler is a native of Arizona and has spent his life developing relationships in the local community. The oldest of three boys, Gruler learned at an early age what it means to lead and has carried forth that tradition throughout his life.

Mr. Gruler attended Brophy College Preparatory, an all-boys Jesuit high school in downtown Phoenix. While there, Gruler was a four-year letterman on the wrestling team, serving as Team Captain his Junior and Senior years. In 2004, Gruler competed and won first place in the regional tournament. At Brophy, Gruler excelled in his studies and secured a full scholarship to Arizona State University. Fulfilling the school’s mission, Mr. Gruler learned to become a “man for others” and developed lifelong friendships during his time at Brophy.

Mr. Gruler later attended Arizona State University where he immediately found a passion in politics. Active in many on campus political clubs and volunteering for political campaigns across the state, Gruler found an avenue by which he could affect meaningful change. In 2008, Gruler graduated Arizona State University magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science.

Looking for additional means of affecting change, Gruler decided to attend law school in 2009 to better hone his advocating abilities. While attending Phoenix School of Law, Gruler was named a Raul Castro Scholar and served as vice managing editor and staff editor of the Phoenix Law Review, leading dozens of teams and individuals in publishing the school’s most prominent journal. Gruler was a member of the Federalist Society and the founder and vice president of the Criminal Law Society. He earned the highest marks in his Constitutional Law II and Business Association courses and graduated at the top of his class. In May 2012, Gruler received his Juris Doctorate magna cum laude from Phoenix School of Law. During his time in law school, Gruler served as a legal intern for for various law firms..

Mr. Gruler is proud to be a part of the R&R Law Group team and the fight to protect constitutional liberties that appear to be eroding at an ever greater pace.

In his spare time, Gruler enjoys hiking, exercising, web development and spending time with his friends and family. Gruler is an active participant at his local lodge and acts as a foster for injured animals in cooperation with Bethany Animal Medical Hospital.
