Robert is an experienced litigation attorney who over many years has represented leaders in the title insurance industry, including, among others:

  • Attorneys’ Title Insurance Fund
  • Old Republic National Title Insurance Company
  • Fidelity National Title Insurance Company
  • First American Title Insurance Company
  • Stewart Title Insurance Company
  • Commonwealth Land Title Insurance Company
  • Lawyers Title Insurance Company
  • WFG National Title Insurance Company

Robert’s extensive real estate, business and litigation experience provides his clients with a unique advantage when it comes to their transactions, as well as any disputes that evolve. That same knowledge base has also provided a strong foundation for his industry leadership in real estate and title litigation. The title insurance industry regularly retains him for their most challenging issues including the forensic analysis of frauds and the defalcation of escrow funds. When a client suspects that a fraud or theft has occurred, Robert calls upon his national contacts, his many years of experience, his sophisticated negotiation skills and, through the application of injunctive and extraordinary relief, seeks an efficient result that reduces loss and increases the ability for salvage. This same experience has allowed Robert to assist many clients facing the loss of funds as a result of the wire fraud epidemic. The nature of his forensic work exposes him to many jurisdictions throughout the United States. As a result of his efforts in the real estate fraud arena, he often works with law enforcement and has been called upon by the Florida Bar to lecture, as well as testify, in disciplinary proceedings.  

A native of Milwaukee, Wis., Robert earned his law degree from the University of Miami in 1980 after receiving a bachelor's degree in construction administration in 1977 from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is a member of the Florida Bar and, prior to joining McDonald Hopkins, served as President and managing shareholder of Cohen | Ruiz.
