About Bob
Q&A
  • What do you find most exciting about your work?

    The most exciting part of my work is when my client or the court has an "ah ha" moment as a result of my work distilling and explaining a complex factual or legal issue. Those moments happen as a result of thorough preparation, and they reinforce my drive to live in the details of each case.

  • What type of matters do you work on most often?
  • What courts or agencies do you most often appear before on behalf of your clients?
  • How are you involved in your community?
