Rusty Hardin’s Comments About Bob
A native of New Orleans, Bob was a gifted and highly recruited athlete who chose to play football at LSU. But even as a starting offensive lineman, Bob was focused on his academic commitments. He ultimately received his undergraduate degree summa cum laude and was named the Most Outstanding Senior for the College of Arts & Sciences and for the entire university, in addition to a host of other honors.
Backed with those accomplishments, and not wanting to leave his hometown, Bob attended Loyola University School of Law and offered further evidence of his leadership, drive and intellectual abilities. Bob served as Editor-in-Chief of the Loyola Law Review, was valedictorian of his law class, and then served as a judicial law clerk in federal court for the Eastern District of Louisiana, as well as the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. This experience served him well in preparing for both a trial and appellate practice.
At the conclusion of his clerkships Bob and his family – his wife is also an attorney — decided to move to Houston, where Bob began his private practice at a major international firm and then for two smaller, more specialized firms. At each stop he has earned multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for his clients in courts across the nation.
Bob has loads of Louisiana charm, coupled with that Cajun accent and a wonderful sense of humor, and we are fortunate to have him at our firm.
