Summary

Widely regarded as one of the region’s most successful plaintiff’s attorneys, Rob Fellows is the firm’s managing partner. Rob brings more than 40 years of experience and legal skill to the courtroom and to his clients, where his reputation for meticulous attention to detail, relentless preparation, and aggressive advocacy has gained him the respect of colleagues, judges, and adversaries alike.

Rob believes that the firm’s strong connections with its clients are a major factor in its success. He says, “We take the time to get to know our clients as people, beyond the facts of their cases. We learn as much as possible about how being seriously injured has affected them and their family, not just physically but also emotionally. Since our focus is on getting our clients the maximum recovery, we need to understand the impact on the whole person.” Clients tell us, “You’re not a typical lawyer, because you take the time to speak with me.” Rob's clients know they really matter to him.
