While at Baylor, Robert had the honor of serving as an Associate Editor on Baylor Law Review.

Since becoming one of The Trucking Trial Lawyers, Robert has assisted with litigating cases in California, Florida, Illinois, Minnesota, New Mexico, North Carolina, and Texas. Robert has served as lead trial counsel in Texas and North Carolina, where he recently won a substantial Trucking verdict in the United States District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina.
