Attorney Rob McLain is an experienced legal professional whose main focus is on litigation. Before attending college, Mr. McLain worked in IT for an AMLAW 100 law firm. From there, he did the same for a computer forensics firm, and he published an article on how the Fourth Amendment relates to computer search and seizure. In 1998, Mr. McLain earned his BA in philosophy and English at the University of Florida. His path eventually took him to law, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude from the George Mason University School of Law. He continued to contribute to the school as an editor for their George Mason Law Review.
Mr. McLain’s legal career started at a Washington, D.C. office of a New York-based law firm. A member of their fraud litigation team, Mr. McLain represented clients in both civil and criminal court. His clients included corporations to individuals. Mr. McLain used his knowledge to advise them on computer security compliance.
In 2010, Mr. McLain returned to his hometown of Sarasota, Florida and joined another firm, continuing his litigation and advisory work for companies and individuals. Broadening his practice, Mr. McLain has since represented clients in personal injury, malpractice, sexual harassment, probate matters, business and contract disputes, and tort lawsuits. Also continuing his criminal defense work, Mr. McLain has defended his clients from all manner of allegations. These include DUI and driving with a suspended license, fleeing the scene of an accident, unlicensed contracting, battery, fraud and embezzlement, conspiracy, money laundering, and wire fraud.
