I worked with Robert a few years ago during a summer internship, and he is a professional, reliable, and ethical attorney.
He has extensive trial experience and is skilled in discovery, depositions, and is aggressive in the courtroom. His passion is Maritime Law, but he does practice in other areas, including PI, Civil Litigation, corporate law.
I learned a lot from him while working on a business dissolution lawsuit involving a multi-million dollar company, and several other cases, including a civil suit against a public school for negligence resulting in a student's homicide. Robert was effective at advocating on behalf of his client's interests in especially difficult cases.
Robert is also unafraid to use technology, something which puts him at an advantage among his peers. I worked with him to create a timeline that we used during a trial, creating a more vivid picture for the judge of the events in the case.
I would be very glad to work with Robert again in the future. There are not many dedicated and honest professionals in the legal profession in Miami, which is why I would recommend his work to anyone.
