Serving as General Counsel to Bronx Borough President Vanessa L. Gibson, Robert oversees the legal operations and compliance programming for more than 70 staff members. Robert provides strategic counsel to the Borough President on administrative and governance matters, actively advises on the Office’s policy, development, and agency oversight agendas, and functions as a key navigator in executing the Gibson Administration’s goals and vision.

Robert also serves on the Board of Trustees of the New York City Employee’ Retirement System (NYCERS), the largest municipal public employee retirement system in the United States. As a Trustee, Robert makes decisions on the 80-billion-dollar fund’s asset allocations, establishes the system’s administrative budget, and promulgates rules and regulations necessary to carry out NYCERS business.

Robert previously served as an adjudicator in New York City’s administrative court where he decided matters involving the Federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Immediately prior, he presided over cases that involved alleged violations of building, construction, fire, transportation, and environmental laws. Prior to taking his term, Robert managed a plaintiff’s litigation practice focused on traumatic injuries, employment discrimination, and business disputes. He has also served in the New York City Council under two Speakers and two Council Members, most recently as Deputy General Counsel to the Land Use Division.

Robert holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Psychology from CUNY Queens College, with honors, and a Juris Doctor from New York Law School. He is admitted to practice in New York State and Federal courts. Robert is a strong proponent of accessible legal services and for more than a decade has dedicated his pro-bono counsel to the LGBTQ+ and housing insecure communities in New York City.

A lifelong New Yorker, Robert is a passionate, but pragmatic, public servant and a fervent believer in NYC exceptionalism and the Bronx Renaissance. He sees The Bronx as the make-or-break borough for NYC, and he is steadfast on delivering a more prosperous and equitable Bronx for generations to come.

A Great Lawyer. Highly Recommended
Securing a lawyer can be an incredibly daunting task, leaving you wondering who you can trust and who will truly be there to support you through your case. As someone who had never had cause to seek out a lawyer before, I had no idea what to do or how to do it. The idea itself was exhausting; however, hiring Robert Miraglia was incredibly easy. After being injured in a car accident in which the other driver was at fault, I consulted with Robert about taking on my case. I was stressed and overwhelmed by the entire situation, and I'm sure it showed! He put me at ease immediately. He was clear from the start about what the process would entail - in the end there were no surprises or deviations from what he had said. Robert took care of everything and saved me from having to deal with insurance companies as well. He made sure that I got the proper medical care and, I am happy to say, we were successful in our settlement. On a human level, Robert is kind and supportive and he knows his stuff. No matter how many questions I had or what I needed to be explained, he was more than happy to talk me through it. Though I have no doubt he has an incredibly busy schedule, he made time to talk and always kept lines of communication open. He is approachable, compassionate, and positive; however, I know that he can be tough when needed. I would go back to him without any hesitation. I wholeheartedly recommend Robert Miraglia to anyone looking for a brilliant lawyer.

Sharp and Insightful
I've sought Robert's counsel on several business issues over the years, and have been glad I did each and every time. He's an excellent attorney with a sharp mind. You can come to him with what you think the problem is and he's very quickly able to parse the truly relevant aspects of the issue, crafting a solution and a path forward that best addresses your end goal. He has the rare ability to balance quick thinking with thoughtful and knowledgeable insights and I'd feel confident having him in my corner for anything that might come up.

I Highly Recommend Mr. Miraglia
Mr. Miraglia has helped me on a number of occasions, from dealing with contractors to reviewing documents to giving me overall legal advice. Each instance was a stressful one--that is before Mr. Miraglia came onboard. I highly recommend him. He's the type of professional you want on your side.

Problem Solver
I had a dispute with a contractor, and Mr. Miraglia, acting as my attorney, was able to resolve the issue without us having to go to court. Mr. Miraglia saved me money, time, and I was able to get through it without a headache.

The best attorney
I worked with Robert last year to settle a case involving an unfortunate car accident. Driving under the influence, a young person crashed into the back my four-door sedan leaving me and my young child injured. Robert worked quickly to settle our claim with the insurance company and bring justice to an irresponsible driver. It is also important to mention that not only is Robert very knowledgeable but he is also very warm and compassionate which made working through this terrible situation a lot easier. I highly recommend Robert for his inimitable work ethic, commitment to serving his clients, and because he's an all-around stand up guy.
