About Robert

Learn Robert’s areas of practice.

Robert J. Boughter, the founder of Boughter Sinak, LLC, dedicates his life to the representation of people seriously injured or killed in accidents and on the job. He is known as “The Fighter” because of his aggressive and straightforward approach to representing his clients in and out of court. Mr. Boughter prides himself on being honest, tenacious and loyal. He has a vast range of experience, having successfully prosecuted almost every type of injury or death case imaginable – from trucking accidents to chemical explosions. Mr. Boughter was born in New Castle, Pennsylvania. He received his undergraduate degrees in criminology and Spanish magna cum laude from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 1997. Mr. Boughter also studied at the Universidad de Valladolid, Spain and El Centro Biling̤ue in Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico. Mr. Boughter is fluent in Spanish. Following undergraduate school, Mr. Boughter served as a special agent with the Office of Inspector General-Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, where he investigated and prosecuted fraud in governmental agencies. Mr. Boughter had a 100% conviction rate for the cases he investigated. Mr. Boughter received his Doctor of Jurisprudence from Indiana University Maurer School of Law in 2002, which he attended on partial scholarship. Following law school, Mr. Boughter worked for a prominent insurance defense firm in northwest Indiana, where he defended trucking companies, municipalities, police officers, businesses and insurance companies from claims for personal injury, wrongful death, insurance bad faith and civil rights violations. Mr. Boughter now practices exclusively in the areas of plaintiff’s personal injury, including catastrophic injury, wrongful death, product liability, construction and work-related injuries.

Early in his career, Mr. Boughter was named among the “Top 40 Under 40” by The National Trial Lawyers and rated by “Super Lawyers” as a “Rising Star.” The Rising Stars list recognizes no more than 2.5% of attorneys under 40 in Indiana. Currently, Mr. Boughter has been selected by his peers as an “Indiana Super Lawyer”, an award presented to the top 5% of practicing attorneys in Indiana. Other accolades include “America’s Top 100 Attorneys,” “Top 100 Trial Lawyers” by The National Trial Lawyers, and Lifetime Charter Member of “Best Attorneys of America.” Mr. Boughter is also a member of the “Million Dollar Advocates Forum,” one of the most prestigious groups of trial lawyers in the United States. Membership is limited to attorneys who have secured million and multi-million dollars verdicts and settlements. Fewer than 1% of U.S. lawyers are members. Mr. Boughter has obtained multiple 7-figure recoveries on behalf of his clients. While headquartered in Indiana, Mr. Boughter represents clients nationally, including Florida, Georgia, Pennsylvania and
Ohio. 

Outside of lawyering, Mr. Boughter has a passion for animals, and has five dogs and a horse of his own. Mr. Boughter routinely supports and donates to animal rescue groups locally and around the country. Mr. Boughter rescued Siegfried the Great (“Ziggy”), the law firm’s regal German-Shepherd mascot, all the way from Los Angeles, CA. Ziggy is admired by all and often sits in on depositions and mediation.

Exceptional Legal Representation
When I needed a lawyer after my accident, my wife and I made the right choice by hiring Boughter Sinak, LLC. They went above and beyond to ensure I received the highest possible compensation for my injuries and suffering. Robert was excellent at keeping me informed throughout the entire process. He explained legal terms and procedures clearly and simply, which made me feel more at ease. I trusted him completely to handle my case to the best of his ability. I also appreciated his genuine care for my well-being. Robert took the time to listen to my concerns and showed empathy and compassion. He genuinely wanted the best outcome for me, both financially, and medically. When it came to negotiating the final settlement, Robert was skillful and persistent resulting in a settlement that far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Boughter Sinak, LLC. They provided outstanding legal representation and went the extra mile to protect my interests. If you are ever injured and need legal assistance, don't hesitate to contact Boughter Sinak, LLC. They will guide you through the process and work tirelessly to achieve the best outcome for you. Thank you, Robert, for your exceptional knowledge of the law and your exceptional legal service. You truly are a fighter for your clients!

Wrongful death settlement-Construction Site
I lost my husband in a motorcycle accident, and subsequently contacted Mr. Boughter. Mr. Boughter was very understanding and sympathetic-and made the process as simple as possible for me. Through extensive discovery and research efforts, all parties with possible responsibility for the accident were vetted and narrowed from 12 to four. A wrongful death suit was filed, and after two years it was settled this week. We went through a mediator, so the difficult, emotional jury trial was avoided; I am very pleased with the outcome. These guys really know their stuff! Thank you, Robert (and Associates) - you did a great job for me!

When Robert says he will be a fighter on your side it is the absolute truth. Robert goes the extra mile he is honest, caring and very hardworking. I have a deep respect for this man and his employees. Robert is hands on and if he says he will take care of it have no doubt he will. This is an attorney like none you have ever had before he is respectable and honest. If you want an attorney that has your best interest at heart this is your man.
