Attorney Robert Cummings

Robert Cummings, Esq.I began my career at one of the most prestigious law firms in the world litigating cases for Fortune 500 companies, international accounting firms, multi-national corporations, and other wealthy clients.  While at that firm, I sharpened my litigation teeth in contentious motion practice, aggressive discovery disputes, and other well-fought battles.  After four years at the firm, I decided that I wanted to take what I had learned and use it to assist my own clients.

Now, I have partnered with a great lawyer and even better friend to assist clients in all manners of litigation, negotiations, and trials.  My partner focuses purely on criminal law, and my practice focuses exclusively on assisting clients in civil disputes, including family law, personal injury, as well as commercial and corporate matters.  I will aggressively and diligently pursue an outcome that is in my clients’ best interests.

I live in Salt Lake City with my lovely wife and amazing son, Aidan.  We moved here from Los Angeles recently, and beginning next year, Aidan will be a Dillworth Dingo.  We could not be more excited to be in Salt Lake, and look forward to meeting new people as well as me assisting individuals and companies in Salt Lake in achieving the legal results they expect and deserve.
