About Me:

During Bob's first decade as a lawyer, he primarily litigated commercial, business, personal injury and family law disputes. The financial and emotional cost of the traditional litigation model to Bob's clients has caused him to redirect his professional energy. Although Bob still litigates appropriate cases, he now guides clients toward a collaborative and peaceful solution to their legal problems. In this way clients maintain control, reduce legal fees and the emotional turmoil associated with litigation, all while maintaining privacy which does not exist in the litigation model.Graduated from University of New Hampshire with degrees in Business Administration, with minors in Economics and Philosophy. Graduated law school at Maine School of Law in 1988. Bob has been practicing law for nineteen years and is licensed in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine. An interdisciplinary practice team approach provides innovative and winning strategies for Bob's clients. Bob believes that all clients' legal issues are deserving of my 100% attention. Bob recognizes the emotional and financial difficulty which we all experience when addressing difficult legal issues. Each client's specific needs, goals and objectives are carefully and thoroughly discussed. Combining legal excellence with creative thinking, a course is then charted to accomplish the client's goals.
