Robert is a committed advocate who brings consummate problem-solving focusing to resolve complex commercial litigation in the energy, maritime, transportation, and construction. Robert’s indomitable work ethic pairs with his ability to nimbly grasp technical issues, allowing him to quickly craft custom, out-of-the-box solutions for clients, regardless of size or intricacy of the challenge.

As a trial lawyer, Robert’s knack for identifying with any audience, and his energetic and compassionate demeanor, make him a natural at clearly and persuasively presenting to a court or a jury. Having successfully tried cases to verdict in state and federal courts, and handled appeals in both jurisdictions, he is at ease in any setting. He is equally tenacious and effective in commercial matters, with experience in routine contract negotiations, entity purchases and acquisitions, and multi-million-dollar asset and equity transactions.

Hard work, preparation, and a “can-do” attitude are nothing new for Robert, who grew up with four younger brothers in a military family that moved all over the United States. That experience may be why family and friends describe him as “intensely committed,” “adaptable,” and “stubbornly loyal.”  Outside the courthouse, he’s an accomplished Brazilian jiu-jitsu competitor and avid rock climber who aspires to free climb the Freerider Route on El Capitan in Yosemite Valley one day.

Prior to joining Hall Maines Lugrin, Robert honed the fundamentals of trial practice at a large regional law firm before transferring to two other boutique law firms which focused on litigation and commercial matters, respectively.
