Robert is graduate of UCLA and Harvard Law School. He also earned his Certificate of Fiduciary Management from the California State University in Fullerton. Before establishing Earnest Trust Management, Robert practiced law for 30 years for both international law firms, including Paul Hastings in Los Angeles, and multinational companies, such as ARCO and Nissan.  Although our clients benefit from Robert's legal education and experience, no attorney-client relationship exists when Robert is retained as a trustee, agent or conservator. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Robert is now a resident of Arcadia and has resided in the San Gabriel Valley since 1990.  With his family, he was actively involved in youth organizations and the Arcadia schools. He was recently recognized with the Silver Beaver Award for distinguished service to youth by his local Scouting council. Robert is presently active in his community through the Pasadena Rotary Club and The University Club of Pasadena. Professionally, Robert is active with ProVisors, local Estate Planning Councils (Azusa, Glendale and San Gabriel Valley), the Pasadena Bar Association, the Professional Fiduciary Association of California and the Fiduciary Round Table of San Gabriel Valley.
