"It is not enough to do your best; you must know what to do, and then do your best." - W. Edwards Deming

Robyn N. Moschet

Rob grew up on the North Shore of Lake Superior, to which he returns whenever he can to fish, hike, kayak, and take in the beauty of the Minnesota Arrowhead region. He has practiced law for 40 years and has handled a wide variety of cases in state courts and various administrative tribunals involving personal injury, workers’ compensation, property damage, real estate, contracts and contract disputes, licensing matters, receivership, construction defects, and professional liability claims.

Having represented clients in such a wide variety of legal matters over the years, Rob has adopted the motto, “Listen. Understand. Only then, Advise.” He has put this motto to good use in his current practice representing construction professionals in cases alleging construction and design defects, and he has learned that effective advocacy often involves managing risk by negotiation as well as litigation.

Rob is an active member of his church where he currently serves on the board of trustees of the church foundation, and is an active participant with Kids Against Hunger. He indulges his inner thespian by participating in a community theater group.
