About me

For the past thirty-five years I have successfully represented thousands of deserving individuals in social security disability cases. For the past twelve years, I have expanded my practice to assist inidiviuals in long term disability claims. Each case receives my personal attention. I work closely with my clients and their medical providers to present the strongest case possible. I do not charge for an initial consultation and would be glad to discuss your situation with you.

  • Christian Ross Ayers

    Trustworthy, diligent, straightforward. I have had the privilege of working with Robert on several cases as an Associate Lawyer at Sellers, Ayers, Dortch & Lyons. I am impressed with his attention to detail, the law, and most of all, the individual client, in carrying out his practice. Robert brings a personal element to legal representation that is hard to find in modern law offices. If I found myself in need of an attorney, I would wholeheartedly trust Robert with my case.
