Overview

Robert loves getting to results.

He was first attracted to law because it was a field where theory and analysis could translate immediately into real-world answers. For Robert, the best part of his work as an attorney is seeing tangible results in a client’s business. He sees each case as an opportunity to help clients reach their business goals.

Robert’s focus on results means that he thrives in the courtroom environment. He skillfully presents legal arguments, and he approaches trials with the client’s business goals at the forefront. However, court is truly a last resort: Robert’s goal is to solve problems before they get to trial. He excels at working with opposing counsel to reach resolutions that serve the best interests of clients.
