Bob was born and raised in Steinbach. He became a partner, along with John Neufeld, in our predecessor firm in 1978. Bob married his favourite nurse, Maggie.

Bob and Maggie are also the proud grandparents of Liam, Teddy, Lewis, Tommy, and now Margo, their first granddaughter.


Bob received a Bachelor of Arts degree (with a major in History) from the University of Manitoba in 1969. He received a Bachelor of Laws degree in 1973 (Juris Doctor degree in 2014) and was called to the Bar in 1974.


Bob’s preferred areas of practice include Commercial and Corporate transactions, Real Estate Property Law, Mortgage transactions, Wills and Estate Planning, and Estate Law.


Throughout his life, he has been extremely active in community affairs. Bob served as a Councillor for the City of Steinbach and has served on numerous boards, both as a member and as a chairperson.


His passion is sports. He coached baseball, ringette, and hockey for many years. He also served as the manager of the Eastman AAA Midget Selects for two years. He recently sat on the board of the Steinbach Pistons Manitoba Junior A Hockey Team. He has also been involved with various City of Steinbach advisory committees, including the multiplex project. While enjoying golf as often as his schedule permits in the summer, he can also frequently be seen taking long walks with his wife Maggie.
