Rob’s experience at Pace Law School provided him with the necessary knowledge and advocacy to become a successful attorney.  What he really enjoyed about his time at Pace Law School was the community feeling and open door policy that the professors maintained.  He remembers well the civil procedure classes taught by Professors Carlisle and McLaughlin as well as his criminal law classes with Professors Garfield and Simon.  While at Pace, Rob was the winner of the Carl A. Vergari Excellence in Criminal Law Award.

Since graduating, Rob has attended various alumni events, most recently, he attended a small reception held at a fellow alumni’s home in New York City to welcome the new dean, David Yassky, and hear his vision and plan for the years ahead.  Rob is confident that the Law School is headed in the right direction and will meet any challenges and prosper under the new dean.

Rob currently resides in Chappaqua with his wife, Maria, and their two children.
