Robert S. Franklin
Robert Franklin, formerly Counsel to the firm before relocating to Palm Beach County, Florida, has joined forces with Baumeister & Samuels. Rob and Mitch first met while both were prosecuting major felony cases as Assistant District Attorneys in Manhattan.
Rob then spent several years at Baumeister & Samuels representing clients in aviation, medical malpractice and complex personal injury cases. His firm and Baumeister & Samuels will now collaborate in handling similar matters in New York and Florida.
A former New York City prosecutor with over 35 years of trial experience, Rob has a thorough understanding of the prosecution's side in cases, and what actions the prosecutors are likely to take. This understanding and experience is important and enables him to successfully guide clients through the many challenging aspects of the criminal justice system.
Rob's many years of experience handling complex State and Federal Court matters is an invaluable asset. He has defended clients in all kinds of cases in State and Federal Court. In some cases, with early strategic actions taken by the criminal defense lawyer, the charges are dismissed or reduced. Rob has the ability to negotiate on behalf of the accused, as well as the experience and judgment necessary to effectively represent them.
Rob Franklin takes a "hands on" and aggressive approach to each case. He believes that every case is unique to the individual. A defense strategy is created for the particular issues and needs of each client. He fully understands that your life may be at a crossroads, and how important your case is. He is prepared to fight relentlessly on behalf of his client, and each case he's involved with will be given the time and personal attention that is needed and deserved.
