After graduating from law school, he worked as a law clerk for a state circuit court judge in Barnwell, who held court mostly in Aiken, Bamberg, and Barnwell. After a year there, Rob returned to the Upstate in 2001 to practice law in Easley.
In 2005, Rob joined this firm. Rob is grateful to practice law here. He is thankful to be part of the Spartanburg community, where he and his wife raise their four children. Rob and his family belong to First Presbyterian Church here in town, where he’s been a deacon. Over the years, he’s served Spartanburg on the boards of the local Red Cross and TOTAL Ministries, a mission funded by local churches to feed and clothe the less fortunate.
Rob has been honored to be an elected leader within the legal profession as a two-term member of the board of directors for the state criminal defense lawyers association and chairman of the personal injury and insurance committee of the South Carolina Bar.
For his entire legal career starting in 2001, Rob has worked to help people who got hurt through no fault of their own and defend people accused of crime, including DUI. He has tried numerous cases to a jury verdict, from car accidents to residential construction to assault and battery with intent to kill, and DUIs. He has also tried several workers’ compensation hearings. Rob says, “The best thing about being a lawyer is I get to be a voice for folks who might not otherwise have one. I am very proud of the people I help and the causes I represent.”
