Attorney Profile

Robert J. Boughter, the founder of Boughter Sinak, LLC, dedicates his life to the representation of people seriously 
injured or killed in accidents and on the job. He is known as “The Fighter” because of his aggressive and straightforward 
approach to representing his clients in and out of court. Mr. Boughter prides himself on being honest, tenacious and 
loyal. He has a vast range of experience, having successfully prosecuted almost every type of injury or death case 
imaginable – from trucking accidents to chemical explosions. Mr. Boughter was born in New Castle, Pennsylvania. He 
received his undergraduate degrees in criminology and Spanish magna cum laude from Indiana University of 
Pennsylvania in 1997. Mr. Boughter also studied at the Universidad de Valladolid, Spain and El Centro Biling̤ue in
Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico. Mr. Boughter is fluent in Spanish. Following undergraduate school, Mr. Boughter served 
as a special agent with the Office of Inspector General-Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, where he investigated and 
prosecuted fraud in governmental agencies. Mr. Boughter had a 100% conviction rate for the cases he investigated. 

Mr. Boughter received his Doctor of Jurisprudence from Indiana University Maurer School of Law in 2002, which he 
attended on partial scholarship. Following law school, Mr. Boughter worked for a prominent insurance defense firm in 
northwest Indiana, where he defended trucking companies, municipalities, police officers, businesses and insurance 
companies from claims for personal injury, wrongful death, insurance bad faith and civil rights violations. Mr. Boughter 
now practices exclusively in the areas of plaintiff’s personal injury, including catastrophic injury, wrongful death, product 
liability, construction and work-related injuries. 

Early in his career, Mr. Boughter was named among the “Top 40 Under 40” by The National Trial Lawyers and rated by 
“Super Lawyers” as a “Rising Star.” The Rising Stars list recognizes no more than 2.5% of attorneys under 40 in Indiana. 
Currently, Mr. Boughter has been selected by his peers as an “Indiana Super Lawyer”, an award presented to the top 
5% of practicing attorneys in Indiana. Other accolades include “America’s Top 100 Attorneys,” “Top 100 Trial Lawyers” 
by The National Trial Lawyers, and Lifetime Charter Member of “Best Attorneys of America.” Mr. Boughter is also a 
member of the “Million Dollar Advocates Forum,” one of the most prestigious groups of trial lawyers in the United States. 
Membership is limited to attorneys who have secured million and multi-million dollars verdicts and settlements. Fewer 
than 1% of U.S. lawyers are members. Mr. Boughter has obtained multiple 7-figure recoveries on behalf of his clients. 
While headquartered in Indiana, Mr. Boughter represents clients nationally, including Florida, Georgia, Pennsylvania and 
Ohio. 

Outside of lawyering, Mr. Boughter has a passion for animals, and has five dogs and a horse of his own. Mr. Boughter 
routinely supports and donates to animal rescue groups locally and around the country. Mr. Boughter rescued Siegfried 
the Great (“Ziggy”), the law firm’s regal German-Shepherd mascot, all the way from Los Angeles, CA. Ziggy is admired 
by all and often sits in on depositions and mediation.
