Burris & MacOmber, PLLC is pleased to announce and welcome attorney Robert S. Pearson to the firm.
A graduate of Salpointe Catholic High School and the University of Arizona College of Law, Pearson is a Tucson native and civil/business litigator. With jury-trial and arbitration experience, Pearson litigates high-stakes cases in federal and state court across a range of practice areas, including general civil litigation; commercial and contract litigation; employment litigation; education law and Title IX; governmental and public entity law; trust and estate litigation; personal-injury law; and real estate litigation. Although much of Pearson’s practice involves disputes in court (trial and appellate), he routinely advises companies and individuals on compliance issues and pre-lawsuit disputes—helping clients manage risk and efficiently resolve disputes when they arise, guiding clients through relevant legal and regulatory issues, strategy, and public-relations sensitivities.
His representative cases include obtaining dismissal at the motion to dismiss stage for real estate developer client facing multi-count lawsuit in federal court arising from a Costa Rican hotel-development project; defending major university in high-profile litigation involving student athletes and claims for negligent employment and Title IX violations; defending government entities and employees in high-profile personal injury cases involving claims of various governmental negligence.
Pearson has a passion for the law—especially for legal writing. He believes writing matters to effective advocacy; and he enjoys putting that passion to work to advocate for his clients.
