Robert has also obtained notable decisions in the New York Appellate Divisions with his legal writing skills, including:
Hewitt v NY 70th Street, LLC, et al, 184 AD3d 451 (1st Dept 2020), where the First Department reversed the lower Court's ruling and awarded Plaintiff summary judgment on Labor Law 240(1) as there was no overhead protection afforded to the Plaintiff at the construction site.
O'Connor v Ronnie Cab Corp., et al., 142 AD3d 972 (2d Dept. 2016), where the Second Department affirmed the lower Court's ruling in denying defendants' motion for summary judgment and finding an issue of fact as to whether Rahman's positioning of his car at least partially in a travel lane was a violation of the traffic rules of the City of New York (see 34 RCNY 4-08[e]), and whether that violation was a proximate cause of the collision and of O'Connor's injuries and death.
Robert's peers nominated him as a Super Lawyers Rising Star every year since 2014. He is also a member of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association. Robert is a lifelong New Yorker and lives with his family in Westchester, NY.
