About me



After completing law school, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude, Rob practiced as a felony prosecutor in Clermont County, Ohio. During these years he gained valuable trial experience handling cases of significant importance to the community and the individual victims. His years spent as a police officer and felony prosecutor have taught Rob that many times his clients are wrongfully accused or overcharged, or their constitutional rights have been violated in the pursuit by police for a suspect.  He uses these years of experience investigating and litigating cases to aggressively defend his clients against a system that has unlimited resources. 


Rob is also a Certified Public Accountant who has worked for both large corporations and small businesses.  He continues to maintain his CPA license and knows how to get to the bottom of large company financials to learn the real truth about solvency and their ability to pay for hurting others.


Rob’s practice concentrates on the areas of criminal defense (white collar, DUI, traffic, felony, misdemeanor and juvenile), personal injury, domestic relations (divorce, separation, child support and custody), estate planning, and business litigation/consulting.


Rob maintains professional associations with the Ohio State Bar Association, Cincinnati Bar Association (member of the Solo and Small Firm Section), Clermont County Bar Association (where he serves on the grievance committee), Potter Stewart Inn of Court, Ohio Association for Justice, and the Accountancy Board of Ohio. Rob is admitted to practice in the state courts of Ohio and Kentucky, the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.
