His transactional practice, which is nationwide, focuses on property and lending matters.  His litigation practice focuses on foreclosures, quiet title disputes, boundary litigation, landlord tenant disputes, and creditor’s rights.  He has mediated disputes both as legal counsel and as a mediator, and was a panel member at American Arbitration Association.  Prior to and during law school, Robert was a corporate pilot, earning his airline transport pilot certification at the earliest possible age.
