Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Attorney
in San Francisco, California

Robert G. Cummings

Attorney at Law

From a young age, I knew I wanted to help people. I started out as a Certified Public Accountant, but soon discovered that what I was truly passionate about was criminal law. As a natural people person with a knack for public speaking, the trial aspect of criminal law fascinated me. I decided that becoming an attorney was the right career path for me. I earned my J.D. from UC Hastings in 1999 and started my own firm in 2007. My passion for defending others led me to focusing on serving clients in need of a domestic violence and sexual assault attorney in the San Francisco area.
