Robert is involved in several practice areas such as title curative matters, closings, default, bankruptcy, condemnation, regulatory compliance and he has vast experience in all types of litigation.
Robert grew up in Little Rock and has continuously lived in Central Arkansas practicing in Arkansas and Tennessee. He was exposed to the lending industry at an early age as his father worked for decades in the mortgage and banking industries giving him the opportunity to build relationships with title agents, real estate agents, underwriters, local bankers, attorneys, title providers and more. Robert started work as a courier for a financial services law firm in 1985 which brought him into contact with judges, clerks, courts, attorneys and various businesses giving him an opportunity to observe and learn the practice of law and lending. While attending law school, Robert clerked for firms and conducted hundreds of title searches throughout Arkansas. After passing the bar in 1991 and working with a firm until 1996, he ventured out on his own as a sole practitioner successfully running his law practice and handling a wide variety of matters associated with real estate and all facets of lending. Robert has professionally handled thousands of matters over the years and attributes his success to his determination, reliability, knowledge and responsiveness.
Outside of work, Robert enjoys traveling, hiking, camping, boating, hunting, and tennis. Robert also enjoys studying history, volunteering for the Boy Scouts of America, and spending time with family and friends and his three Labrador retrievers, Mel, Cache and Tom Ollie.
