Robert partnered with Paul Gordon in August 2015 to form Gordon & Melun, LLC (the predecessor to Gordon Melun Maton LLP) and remains focused on a wide range of commercial litigation as well as general business, real estate, family and transaction law. This range of disciplines provides a keen insight to clients’ desires and needs.
Family law matters can often be cooperatively resolved as a result of diligent analysis of the issues at hand. We make every effort to achieve a cooperative settlement to you family law issues because doing so usually maximizes the client’s position, is cost sensitive and creates the least amount of stress and conflict during this difficult time. When matters cannot be cooperatively resolved, we have extensive litigation experience and the knowledge and strength to fight aggressively for our clients.

While no longer on the board of Advocates for Children, Robert remains a resource to the Board and an ardent child advocate.
