Rob is the "go to" lawyer for his clients when a dispute arises, no matter the issue. He is a trial lawyer who routinely appears on both sides of the docket, regardless if his client is a giant, multi-billion dollar company or an individual seeking justice. 

Rob has earned the respect of his peers; he has been named a Texas Rising Star the past three years by Super Lawyers®. Selection to this list is a distinction limited to 2.5% of lawyers in Texas.

A Brooklyn native, Rob headed to Texas after graduating from Rutgers University in New Jersey to attend Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law, where he earned Dean's List honors and was one of ten graduating students named to the Order of Barristers. Before joining Deans & Lyons, Rob practiced with a large, full-service national firm.

Rob has tried cases in state court, federal court, and before arbitration panels for plaintiffs and defendants. His practice emphasizes complex business litigation, intellectual property litigation, construction litigation, and catastrophic personal injury & wrongful death cases.
