Rob was born and raised in Wisconsin by a family of public servants who instilled in him the values of community service. After college, Rob moved to Montana and did two years of AmeriCorps service with the Justice for Montanans program at the Self-Help Law Center in Kalispell, Montana. There he helped people representing themselves without lawyers in civil legal matters, and he developed an enduring commitment to access to justice.
Rob graduated from the University of Montana Law School, where he was involved in the Montana Public Interest Law Coalition, Montana Trial Lawyers Association, and Environmental Law Group. In the summers between law school he interned with civil law firms in Kalispell and Billings, and he did his third year clinic in criminal law with the Office of the Public Defender. Rob has volunteered with Montana Legal Services Association’s Family Law Clinic and Housing Justice Clinics. He has also volunteered with Montana DPHHS’ Legal Document Clinics drafting estate planning documents.
Rob joined the firm in 2020 and specializes in Social Security Disability practice. Rob is passionate about making the legal system work for regular people. He is a member of NOSSCR (the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives) and the Montana Trial Lawyers Association.
Rob has lived in several different parts of the country, and is happy to have set down roots in the Garden City. Outside the office he likes to run, hike, and bike in the great outdoors. He used to ski race all over Midwestern ski hills, but is now learning to shred the gnar in the mountains.
