Robert J. Pavich

Since 1975, 100% of Bob’s practice has been dedicated to litigation at both the trial and appellate levels. His tort law practice, including medical malpractice, product liability and wrongful death cases, has grown over the past 10 years to include tort victims of human rights violations throughout the world- encompassing mass tort and class action litigation.

Bob’s international experience includes work as lead trial counsel at the Hague War Crimes Tribunal from 2001 through 2005. From 2007 through 2010, he was lead defense counsel in five federal deportation prosecutions in Florida and Illinois, all of which resulted in acquittals. During this time, he continued his active personal injury practice, advocating on behalf of those injured through the negligence of others.
