There are many ways to define what a lawyer does. One such way is to look to the law as a living body that governs the relationships of people. All relationships are governed by the rules of law as developed by society, be it the relationship between a defendant and the government or the relationship between a parent and child. Robert L. Pitler uses the depth of legal theory to find creative solutions to the problems of his clients and develops tools to protect them from costly mistakes.

Over the years besides having legal practice, Robert has also developed and operated single family construction companies Royalty Homes, Inc. and Prestige Homes, LLC building over 300 single family homes as well as participating in land development. In addition, he is a real estate broker for Real Estate Unlimited, Inc. The business experience has translated in Robert being an invaluable business consultant for his clients participating in the business decision-making process.

Today at Pitler and Associates, P.C., Robert is the senior attorney. His skill set includes case strategy planning, and client preparation culminating in the trial of the case.
