Bobby brings a unique and valuable perspective to Rutter & Russin's practice. He formerly worked for the "dark side" representing insurance companies against their insureds. This experience gives him unparalleled insight and perspective that truly sets him apart from the field.

Bobby is passionate about protecting the rights of policyholders. He has experience representing clients in a variety of insurance coverage disputes including claims involving damage to personal and commercial property caused by fire, water, windstorm, hail and other perils; life insurance issues; cyber liability; duty to defend; disaster recovery; and other insurance coverage issues. He also has experience consulting on risk management for individuals and businesses. His approach to protecting the client's rights is not "one size fits all," but tailored to meet the client's needs. Sometimes that involves filing a lawsuit, but other times appraisal, arbitration, mediation, or settlement is more appropriate. He prides himself on the ability to identify the critical issues and communicate those issues persuasively to a jury, judge, or legal counsel.

Bobby's colleagues have recognized his achievements. He was named one of Super Lawyers Rising Stars in 2014-2017, an honor that is limited to no more than 2.5 percent of attorneys within Ohio. He is also a Trustee of the Ohio Association for Justice, and served as the organization's Insurance Committee Chair. He is also frequently asked to speak on the topic of insurance law.

Bobby prides himself on offering a personal touch in his practice by being personable, approachable and responsive, and by focusing on client satisfaction, which differentiates him from many attorneys.
