You might call Robert Baldwin a triple threat. In the world of entertainment this means someone who can sing, dance and act. In a legal context, it means an attorney with experience, tenacity and street smarts. As Senior Counsel, Robert brings more than 15 years of large, national law firm experience to the community of Deland and the surrounding Volusia County area. His legal experience spans everything from estate planning, family law, bankruptcy, and tax, to contract and civil law. This diverse legal background lends itself to understanding the underlying problems that can impact the estate planning process, allowing him to proactively identify and often avoid potential issues.
Robert received his J.D. from Ohio Northern University in 2004, where he completed a legal sabbatical at Oxford University in 2003. In 2006, he began teaching as an adjunct professor of legal studies at Columbia College’s Orlando campus. He is a member of the Bar in Florida, Michigan, and Washington, D.C. and admitted to practice before the Southern, Middle, and Northern Districts of Florida and the Western District of Michigan. He is a member of the American Bar Association, Volusia County Bar Association, and the Orange County Bar Association, Central Florida Bankruptcy Law Association and the National Academy of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys.
Interestingly, Robert is also a triple threat on the stage, serving as the lead singer for a Pink Floyd tribute band and singing, playing drums, guitar and bass in a local DeLand funk band. Robert and his wife also regularly perform at the Athens Theatre in DeLand, where his wife serves as the Director of Marketing and Operations.
Robert adores the community of DeLand, where he has lived since 2004, especially enjoying family activities with his wife, daughter, and dogs.
