The reason that we are where we are today is because of Rob‘s encyclopedic knowledge, legal skill, huge investment of time, and  patience in taking us through this thing, one step at a time, making sure that each step was completely solid before moving on to the next…  That's how deeply he has put himself into our case--so deeply that he knows, and can quote from, the hundreds and hundreds of pages of material that form the backbone of this case.  I work with a lot of attorneys.  Rob's focus is matched by none.  We are very fortunate to have him looking out for the health of our association. [B.W.]​   More Client Testimonials >
