Robert was born and raised on the island of O‘ahu.

The combination of Robert's past experiences and his strong belief to do what is right makes him a passionate and strong advocate for clients who have been injured or wronged through the negligence of others. He has received recognition for his effective representation of clients through Martindale-Hubbell (Preeminent A/V Rating), Superlawyers, Top 40 under 40 National Trial Lawyers, Top 100 Trial Lawyers, and Top Attorneys Rising Stars.
Prior to moving back to Hawai‘i, Robert worked as lead counsel at Romano Law Group on complex multi-party litigation (pre-suit through trial/appeal) involving, among other areas of law, personal injury with a focus on spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, catastrophic injuries, and wrongful death. Robert represented clients in matters relating to motor vehicle crashes, trucking crashes, boating crashes, airplane crashes, products liability, premises liability, negligent security, employment law, bad faith, and mass torts. He was also appointed lead counsel in the mass torts division and was responsible for handling claims involving serious injuries/wrongful death caused by prescription medications such as Actos and Propecia. Robert recovered millions of dollars for clients in pre-suit and litigation cases and successfully negotiated high-dollar settlements, including multi-million dollar settlements.
