PRINT

Robert defends clients in civil litigation with an emphasis on toxic tort litigation. He came to Heyl Royster in 2015 following nearly two years practice at a successful Central Illinois law firm where he represented a variety of businesses in collection disputes, individuals seeking workers compensation benefits, individuals involved in domestic disputes, and individuals charged with misdemeanors and felonies. 

Robert is a native of Springfield, IL. He obtained his J.D. from Southern Illinois University Carbondale and a bachelors degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. During law school, Robert gained valuable insight into the judicial system while serving as a judicial extern for the Honorable Vernelis K. Armstrong of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio.
