About Me

The core of Rob’s legal practice is civil litigation, with an emphasis on construction, real estate, and business law. He represents a wide range of clients, from large construction companies to individual homeowners. His is a practical approach to law, which strives to balance the need for a successful legal outcome with a client’s financial goals (or constraints).


 


Rob is also active in the discussion (and debate) of legal topics within his chosen fields of practice.  In fact, he recently accepted a position at Seattle University's School of Law where he teaches a course in real estate litigation.  He is a yearly contributor to the Washington Lawyer's Practice Manual and provides editorial contributions to the local Tacoma-Pierce County Bar News.
