In Robert’s 30 years of practicing law, he has distinguished himself as one of the top attorneys in the Carolinas. He has been named a part of the South Carolina Super Lawyers since 2014 and has been recognized by Best Lawyers in America for his work in Personal Injury Litigation since 2020. Robert also has an AV Preeminent Rating from Martindale-Hubbell.

Robert’s extensive legal experience has provided him the adept ability to find resolutions to most of the cases brought before him. Robert draws on his time as a trial lawyer at both the state and federal level, in which he represented both plaintiffs and defendants, to help subdue concerns or anxieties experienced by either side and bring clarity to the case — allowing both sides to communicate their positions appropriately and effectively.
As trial lawyer, Robert specialized in cases dealing with insurance coverage issues, product liability issues, bad faith claims, commercial disputes, and insurance defense for many insurance carriers.
