Robert earned his Juris Doctorate degree and Bachelor Of Science degree from the University of South Carolina. He has extensive trial experience in both the State and Federal Courts of South Carolina. His practice focuses on representing real estate developers and business owners in property tax reassessment matters and in seeking tax credits, grants and other incentives for his clients.

Robert has been involved in numerous historic tax credit projects both as an owner/developer and as a legal consultant. He has received historic preservation awards from the Historic Columbia Foundation in 2002, 2005 and 2009. In 2006 he was awarded the Leadership in Preservation Award by the Historic Columbia Foundation and in 2009 was awarded the Governors Award for Historic Preservation by the Palmetto Trust for Historic Preservation.

Robert’s practice includes helping clients determine which tax credits and incentives their project may be eligible for and advising the developer throughout their project to insure that the incentive or tax credit requirements are properly adhered to.
