“Robert, you posses that rare and special combination of steely toughness entwined with articulate diplomacy and purely pragmatic, lasered legal analysis combined with a remarkable degree of human compassion and balanced perspective. This combination of attributes make you one heck of a great and successful person. After talking with you I always feel so lifted up. I’m sure you have the same effect on your law students and the young people whom you coach in soccer. I’m sure they feel, and they are, very fortunate to have you as a professor and a coach and I’m sure your other clients feel the same way as do I”.
