About me

My  practice is limited to three specific areas: DUI/OVI; Criminal Defense; and Personal Injury/Wrongful Death.  If the case involves an automobile, than the odds are it is a case that I will litigate whether it is from the DUI Defense perspective or  prosecuting a personal injury case involving a motor vehicle crash.  


I graduated from OSU in Criminal Justice.  I was a private investigator for two years  prior to entering law school.  After law school, I spent six years as an assistant prosecuting attorney learning the skills necesary to handle complex litigation.  Currently I spend approximately 50% of my practice on DUI defense, 25% on criminal defense, and 25% on personal injury/wrongful death cases.  I am on the OACDL DUI committee and I am certified in Breath Testing Procedures and Standardized  Field Sobriety Testing Procedures.  I speak annually at various seminars and orginizations. I have co-chaired the OACDL Advanced DUI Seminar for the past two years.

  • Michael Anthony Marrocco

    Rob offers his clients a unique perspective in the courtroom due to his experience both as a prosecutor and defense counsel. His experience makes him equally comfortable and highly competent in front of a jury, a judge or simply a pretrial conference. His background and knowledge are indeed an asset to anyone who seeks his counsel. I greatly recommend Rob.
