A native of Chattaroy, Mingo County, West Virginia. Rob has lived in Chapmanville, Logan County, for nearly 30 years.  After serving nearly 10 years as a trooper with the West Virginia State Police, he returned to West Virginia University to attend the WVU College of Law.  Rob believes that his training and experience as a state policeman helps in his investigation and representation of clients in criminal cases as well as serious car crash and truck crash cases.
