Jeremy D. Robb

Associate

Jeremy’s ability to provide thoughtful guidance and practical analysis—while always having fun and maintaining a sense of humor—has won the admiration of many clients. He also never hesitates to step up when clients have no choice other than to litigate. His ability to write persuasively, think on his feet, and vigorously argue on behalf of clients always helps shepherd cases to a favorable resolution, whether it’s settlement or trial.

Jeremy values the close relationships he forms with clients and finds working with them particularly rewarding.

Outside of work, Jeremy treasures traveling and spending time outdoors. When required to stay home, he is usually at a golf course or cheering on our local sports teams.
