More About Robert

Almost 20 years ago while living in Pittsburgh, PA, Rob decided that he wanted to come home to WV and start giving back to the communities that raised him. He relocated to Huntington, WV and started his WV legal career. His desire to build and give back to his home state and local communities shows through in his civic involvement and pro bono legal work.

Rob spends significant time devoted to his state and local community. He is a member of the West Virginia State Chamber of Commerce’s Board of Directors and is serving his second year as the Chair of the Huntington Regional Chamber of Commerce. He’s previously served as a board member and Executive Committee member of the United Way of the River Cities. Rob donates significant professional time annually to provide legal services at no cost (probono) to local charitable organizations.

Rob spends his free time with his wife, Valerie and 2 children (Lillian and Robert). He enjoys travel, mountain biking and cycling.
