Robert obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Washington State University, (Go Cougs!), and then received his Paralegal Certificate from the University of San Diego.
After that, Robert began his legal career back in the 1980’s when he worked for nine years as a Litigation Paralegal for Foster Pepper (& Riviera), where he first honed his litigation skills helping support a litigation department of 21 attorneys, and most notably gave primary support to the fifth senior partner at the time, Camden M. Hall. Following that, Robert worked as a Land Use Paralegal for Williams Kastner, and then over the years worked for numerous other small and large law firms as an employee, independent contractor or Temp. Around 2012, Robert went full circle in again providing legal support to Cam Hall as an independent contract Paralegal for about three years as Mr. Hall left Foster Pepper around 2001 to begin his practice of high-end dissolutions and appellate work.
Over the past seven years, while working as a Realtor for Windermere in Mason County, Robert has been doing independent contractor and Temp work providing Legal Assistant and Paralegal support to numerous large and small law firms. One of those firms where Robert temped from time-to-time over the past four to five years was Cole | Wathen | Leid | Hall P.C. Then, in July 2019, Robert became part of the CWLH Team to fill a Legal Assistant opening.
Part of Robert’s past working career, from 2000 to 2005, involved living and working in Malmo, Sweden as V.P. of a start-up Internet broadcasting company, and in Copenhagen, Denmark as a Key Account Manager for a medium sized streaming media company.
