Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, J.D., 2001
University of Akron, B.S., 1997

Those who know Bob weren’t surprised by his decision to become an attorney. As the son of a probation officer and the grandson of a judge, the importance of upholding the law was instilled in Bob at a young age. A northeast Ohio native, he began working for Clunk Hoose shortly after receiving his law license and has been dedicated to representing creditors ever since.

Since becoming a partner in 2011, Bob has played a key role in the firm’s strategic planning, relationship management, and business development groups. Much of Bob’s time is devoted to directing the firm’s client relationship management, strategic direction, technological initiatives, and compliance standards. Bob has structured the firms evolving reach and services in response to clients’ needs and ever changing market conditions.

His commitment to the creditor’s rights industry spans far beyond the walls of Clunk Hoose. From 2014-2017 Bob served on the Ohio Mortgage Bankers Association Board of Trustees. It is on this board that he played a key role in the development and passing of Ohio HB 463, a foreclosure reform bill. In 2014 he was awarded the William G. Hodupp Distinguished Service Award for his service to Mortgage Banking Communities. Additionally, Bob has been a featured speaker at the Ohio Mortgage Bankers Association annual convention for many years.
