Robert Stoll (Retired)

Robert was one of the original firm founders. He retired from the practice of law but still maintains an office where he spends his time working on political matters for both governmental and private agencies. Robert’s original vision of the firm still holds true today, a progressive firm that puts clients first.

In his legal career, he tried over 150 jury and non-jury cases in state and federal courts, representing both plaintiffs and defendants. Although these covered a wide range in both criminal and civil law, most of his practice focused on very large and complex financial litigation, including numerous securities, antitrust, and class actions cases.

Over the years, he has been honored by numerous awards by the state and federal bar associations as well as other non-legal related groups.
