Few attorneys can boast of a trial record to rival Bob’s. He has tried over 50 cases to verdict in roughly 25 years, and he is considered one of the most formidable defense attorneys in the state of Kentucky. Bob is also a leading voice on Dram Shop and Liquor Liability in Kentucky, having lectured on both. Bob holds an AV Rating with Martindale-Hubbell.
Bob’s legal career started with a reputable defense firm in Louisville known for defending Allstate insureds. While there, Bob amassed an impressive amount of trial experience even trying four cases to juries in a single month. Bob is proud of the ways he connects with juries, and his abilities there are evidenced by the low pain and suffering awards he obtains for his clients (sometimes even with serious claimed injuries). Additionally, very few attorneys in Kentucky have obtained as many threshold verdicts in car accident cases as Bob.
Being a native of Northern Kentucky, Bob is a fan of both the Cincinnati Reds and the Cincinnati Bengals. When not helping his clients, Bob enjoys a wide variety of outdoor activities, live music, and spending time with friends.
