Over 22 years ago, Rob began his law practice representing insurance companies and other corporations. For almost 5 years, he worked for 2 larger law firms defending these corporate clients in state and federal court in South Carolina and Tennessee.
However, for the last 17+ years, Rob has represented plaintiffs in cases ranging from medical malpractice, personal injury and nursing home abuse/neglect to insurance disputes, business/commercial litigation and investment fraud. Having litigated cases on “both sides of the fence,” Rob uses this knowledge to better serve his clients.
For over two decades, Rob has continued to be a lawyer focused on a few basic things: providing excellent legal representation, candid advice and real value to his clients. In 2018, Rob was nominated by his peers for inclusion in the Legal Elite edition of the Charleston Business Magazine under the Personal Injury practice area.
After growing up in Kingsport, Tennessee, Rob attended Wake Forest University. While in college, he played on the tennis team and majored in History. As a result of his academic performance, Rob made the Dean’s List and the All-ACC Academic Honor Roll. Following his undergraduate education, he received his law degree from Mississippi College. During law school, Rob was chosen as a Member of the Moot Court Board, the National Trial Team and the National Appellate Advocacy Team. He also received the American Jurisprudence award for Trial Practice.
Rob has been an active participant in his community. Specifically, he has served on the Board of Directors for Meals-on-Wheels, coached high school students in a mock trial competition and served as a coach for youth basketball and soccer.
Rob is a Member of the South Carolina Bar Association and the Charleston County Bar Association. He is also licensed to practice law in all state courts in South Carolina and Tennessee. Additionally, Rob is admitted to practice before the following federal courts: the U.S. District Court for South Carolina, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee, the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals and the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals.
When he is not practicing law, Rob enjoys spending time with family and friends, boating and watching his children play sports.
