During his years of practice in Tallahassee, he represented state agencies and other governmental entities in various lawsuits. He was part of a team of lawyers who pursued workers’ compensation insurance premium fraud claims in New England and Florida; was co-counsel in a federal qui tam action that recovered millions of dollars stemming from medicare fraud; co-counsel representing several automobile dealers in a multimillion dollar claim against a national automobile distributor and foreign automobile manufacturer that alleged antitrust and civil RICO violations.

One such success story was printed on the front page of the New York Times.

Robert’s wife Mary, of 35 years, is the administrative director for the Monroe CountyPublic Defender. While Mary and Robert lived in Tallahassee, she worked for the Office of the State Court Administrator of the Supreme Court and later became an accomplished budget analyst for the Florida House of Representatives. Mary and Robert have two adult children: Lizz Cintron and Matt Cintron, along with four grandchildren: Murphy, Greer, Elliot and Stewart. In representing clients from all walks of life, Robert’s primary focus is efficiency and cost-effectiveness, drawing on his broad experience as a general litigation attorney. Robert’s hobbies are boating, snorkeling, camping, college football, NASCAR and politics.
He started his practice in Memphis, Tennessee, concentrating in litigation of all types.  In 1991, he moved his family to Florida, where he developed a specialty in Labor & Employment Law and Business Litigation.  He is among less than 200 lawyers who are board certified as experts in Labor & Employment Law, less than 250 who are board certified as experts in Business Litigation, and one of only a few lawyers in the State of Florida, out of over 99,000 lawyers, to be board certified by the Florida Bar as an expert in both.
