Biography

“I am passionate about the law and fighting for my clients. I have spent the majority of my career as a litigator, meaning handling lawsuits filed in trial courts resulting in substantial settlements or trials where I have a winning record. I care about your rights.”

The most important aspect of being a litigator is the ability to successfully try cases. Bob has extensive trial experience on both the defense side and plaintiff side. He worked on the defense side for seven years during which time he tried 35 cases to verdict and won each one of them. Bob then moved to the plaintiff side where he has worked for the past 23 years. During that time he has tried over 130 cases, winning most of them. Some of the larger verdicts include $2.82 million in an auto negligence case; $5.5 million in a medical malpractice case; $5.2 million in a jail death case; $4.7 million in a semi tractor crash case and $2.4 million in a medical malpractice case. He has worked on some of the largest and single personal injury cases in the State of Michigan and has personally settled cases amounting to well in excess of $100 million dollars cumulatively.

Bob graduated from Detroit College of Law, now called Michigan State University Law School, in 1993. Passed the bar exam and was admitted to the Michigan bar in May of 1993.

Since that time, he has spent the majority of his time working as a litigator, meaning handling lawsuits filed in trial courts typically resulting in settlement or trial.

Bob lives in Northville with his wife and 3 children. He coaches and plays hockey and enjoys college sports.
