Business Attorney | Apr 05
Relationship: Co-worker
"Robert (Bob) gave me an opportunity in law school to work at the firm as a law clerk while stile maintaining my regular employment. This was an opportunity no one else was willing to offer. After passing the bar, Bob approached me to work at the firm full-time. At the time, I had no idea that I would be going to court on my first day of work. This opportunity has blossomed over the past eight years into a wonderful working relationship. Its been a privilege to have Bob as a mentor and I don't think I could have found a better person to help my professional development. His trial skills are unmatched, whether that is in front of a judge or a jury. People would pay to see Bob in the courtroom, and often times his opponents do. His wealth of knowledge across many areas of law never ceases to amaze me. I fully endorse Bob."

That experience provide me with ample evidence to say that Bob is the consummate professional and the finest advocate one could ask for. Bob is knowledgeable across a wide range of legal areas. His background and his courtroom presence are unmatched in my experience. He commands the respect of judges and fellow lawyers in every circumstance, whether it be in the courtroom, in a deposition, or at mediation. He cares deeply about obtaining a positive outcome for his client and will work tirelessly to achieve that result."
