Attorney at Law
Meet Partner Robert Fisher, Jr.
Attorney Fisher has been practicing both tort and contract law since 2003.
Prior to joining Edgar Snyder & Associates, Attorney Fisher spent nine years working in the insurance industry as a defense attorney, representing insurance carriers under third party disputes (auto accidents/premises liability), uninsured/underinsured motorist contract cases, and bad faith litigation. This experience has given him insight and knowledge that benefits his clients today. His background, work ethic, and legal knowledge help his clients recover the compensation they deserve after an accident. He believes his job is to guide his clients through the legal process, so they have peace of mind that their case is in the right hands.
