About me

To my considerable surprise, I see that I have been practicing law for nearly four decades. I have been a city court judge, and the Public Fiduciary in Tucson -- but I have been in private practice for over thirty years.

Here's the most important practice-related credential: I have been in practice with my current law partner for over twenty years. In law partnership years, that's the equivalent of about 140 years (law partners don't tend to stay together for the marjoiity of their professional lives).

Oh, and we both actually like what we do, like our clients, and like our employees and associates. Score.

  • Craig H Wisnom

    Robert's obviously one of the top attorneys in this field in the community. I am most impressed that he is able to work to bring resolutions that are in the best interests of his clients, rather than costly litigation that is in the best interest of the lawyer. He has helped resolve cases both tremendously complex and simply acrimonious in a very effective manner that is in the best interests of those involved.
