In the mid-1990’s, Robert teamed with legal aid lawyers to improve the legal system for individuals with disabilities. Since then, he has generously given his time and expert knowledge to help resolve other complex systemic cases
Robert has also been a member of the Campaign for Equal Justice Advisory committee since 1994 and Stoll Berne was one of the first firms to achieve one hundred percent attorney participation in the Campaign.
