Robert grew up in the 80’s and was fortunate enough to have a computer in his bedroom. He enjoyed playing with it but always wanted to be a lawyer; he loved arguing too much. Robert never thought about computers as a career until he was discharged from the United States Marine Corps. He had just moved to Los Angeles and the only job he could find at the time was in desktop support. Knowing enough about computers to figure out how to do the job, he took it. Over the years, Robert learned as much as he could and eventually worked his way up to becoming the Technical Lead Engineer in North America for Universal Music. After running their engineering program for a couple of years, he decided it was time to follow his calling and go to law school. Robert worked fulltime and went to law school in the evenings. After graduating, he transitioned from systems engineering to information security and compliance because it allowed him to keep his technical skills and apply his legal education.
Robert is a licensed attorney and a member of the State Bar of California, the U.S. District Court Bar for the Central District of California, and the American Bar Association. He is listed as a Cooperating Attorney with the EFF and has multiple certifications. Robert established RobbLAW, which is a law firm that specializes in information technology law, corporate compliance, privacy and data security law, computer law, and Internet/cyber law (even though he hates the term cyber, it’s how the State Bar categorizes it).
