Robert recognizes the fact that family law is emotionally-charged work. He tries to simplify it by recognizing that he does the work with one ultimate goal – to advise and zealously advocate for his clients.
“Family law can be one big gray area,” Robert says. “The courts look at different factors that aren’t necessarily cut and dry. When advising a client, I try not to have tunnel vision and talk to them about all aspects of the case as well as the potential long-term impacts.”
Beyond the personal satisfaction that Robert feels when doing pro bono work, he encourages others to consider working with VIP because it provides exposure to different areas of law, provides resources that can assist in guiding the volunteers, and is an unofficial way to network.
