Litigation Attorney | Apr 21
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Does Bob sleep? He is a fireball of effective energy for his clients, who are well served by him. Bob knows the benefit of serving clients well without displaying a big ego. He is kind and generous of his time with his colleagues. The legal world is much better for having Bob as a member."
Civil rights Attorney | Apr 27
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I've had the enviable pleasure of working with Bob on some high-profile litigation, and I can say unequivocally, "There are none better." Bob is a walking encyclopedia for starters. He's also a legal tactician of the first order. This is probably why and how he can effortlessly and artfully hog-tie his litigation opponents. And they respect him for it. He's gentle giant who's viewed universally as a top-notch attorney. I recommend Bob to anyone having a First Amendment (or telecommunications) issue of any variety."
