Helping clients for more than two decades, Rob is an experienced criminal defense and professional licensing attorney who has successfully represented clients in both state and federal courts in felony and misdemeanor cases in more than 50 counties across the state of Michigan. He is passionate about what he does, and, understanding the direct and collateral consequences that a criminal conviction or professional licensing sanction can bring, he compassionately works with his clients to focus on what matters most to them.

Rob is a graduate of the Criminal Defense Attorneys of Michigan Trial College, and has completed the NHTSA Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST) Practitioner Training. He is no stranger to leadership roles and is comfortable taking on new challenges, having previously served as President of both the Clinton County Bar Association and the Catholic Lawyers Guild of the Diocese of Lansing.

Outside of work, Rob enjoys reading, canoeing, camping, hiking, traveling, and spending time with his family. Committed to community service, Rob has served on the Briggs District Library Board of Trustees and the Victor Township Planning Commission. Rob has also served as a Cub Scout Den Leader and volunteers annually with “Adopt a River,” a program aimed at cleaning up the Lansing River Trail along the Grand and Red Cedar rivers.
