Robb uses his personal experiences and extensive litigation experience to fiercely advocate for his clients in matters involving estate, trust, guardianship, and fiduciary litigation.

Robb was raised in North Palm Beach, Florida and attended local schools from kindergarten through 12th grade. Robb graduated from Florida State University with a degree in International Affairs and studied abroad at the University of Costa Rica. After spending three years as a golf professional, Robb decided to attend law school at Barry University School of Law. While in law school, Robb was a Dean’s Study Fellow and the Vice President and Co-Founder of the Barry University Military Law Society. Robb also studied law abroad in San Lorenzo de El Escorial, Spain.

After graduating from law school, Robb gained a wide variety of litigation experience at the international law firm of Wilson, Elser, Moskowitz, Edelman & Dicker, LLP, an Am Law 200 firm with its headquarters in New York City. Robb has represented clients on many complicated matters. This included cases assigned to the complex business litigation division in Miami-Dade County, as well as a case requiring travel to Macau, China with over one billion dollars in controversy involving both U.S. and Chinese laws.

Family events called Robb back home to Palm Beach, where he sought out Barner & Barner to begin work in the area of the law that has become his calling, – estate, trust, guardianship, and fiduciary litigation.  Robb uses his personal experiences and extensive litigation experience to fiercely advocate for his clients. In guardianship matters, he serves as court-appointed counsel in the Fifteenth Judicial Circuit and has also been appointed as an emergency court monitor. Robb is also active in local and state bar associations. He is a member of the Elder Law and Real Property, Probate and Trust law (RPPTL) sections of the Florida Bar; the Guardianship, Power of Attorney and Advance Directives Committee of the Florida Bar RPPTL section; the Palm Beach County Bar Association (PBCBA); and the Probate and Law Practice Committee of the PBCBA.

Robb is also a former member of the esteemed American Inns of Court – The Craig S. Barnard American Inn of Court LIV in West Palm Beach (local chapter).  The American Inns of Court are designed to improve the skills, professionalism, and ethics of the bench and bar and have been endorsed by the Conference of Chief Justices and the Judicial Administration Division of the ABA.
