Robert L. Greer

Attorney / Partner



After three decades of defending insurance companies, manufacturers, and transportation businesses, Robert has gradually taken on the representation of more and more individuals who have been seriously hurt. He finds it far more rewarding to represent people instead of balance sheets. But his experience on the defense side of litigation, having learned what insurers look for, permits him to fairly evaluate and settle cases for maximum value without trial. But if trial is needed, he’s done it before — often.
