Robert J. McDonald (RJ) joined our firm in June 2018 as a clerk while still in law school. During his time at UB, RJ worked for the SBI Office of Legal Services, a student-funded organization that provided legal and administrative assistance for students. His work involved defending students in UB's disciplinary process as well as providing access to practicing attorneys for their legal needs. After graduating cum laude and passing the New York State bar exam during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, RJ began working as an associate attorney in August of 2021. RJ is part of the firm's insurance coverage and defense litigation practices where he currently specializes in discovery for all areas of practice within the firm, as well as handling no fault arbitrations and other small claims court matters.
