Partner/ Motions and Appeals Attorney

Robert P. Wargo, a partner and Motions and Appeals attorney in the Los Angeles office, has had a wide and varying career in his thirty years of practice. After graduating from Duke University with a bachelor’s degree in mathematics, Robert obtained a master’s degree in communications from the University of Southern California and was an entertainment publicist before attending UCLA School of Law, from which he graduated in 1994. After working at a boutique estate planning and probate firm, Robert shifted his focus to a boutique business and general civil litigation practice, where he handled cases from inception through resolution, including summary judgment, trial and appeal. Thereafter, Robert decided to focus his career on Motions and Appeal work alternating between plaintiff and defense, but eventually concluding that he found defense work more challenging and stimulating. Robert has prepared all types of motions in both state and federal court and has successfully obtained numerous judgments for clients on demurrer and summary judgment; he has also successfully upheld many judgements on appeal, including judgments obtained for major retail and restaurant chains, small businesses, security companies, universities, public entities, and non-profit organizations. He has appeared numerous times in California and Federal appellate courts.

Robert is a member of the Los Angeles County Bar Association (LACBA), and in his spare time, he sings with Legal Voices, the choir affiliated with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, whose members come from all facets of the legal profession. Robert has been a featured soloist with the group on two occasions at concerts performed at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. When not practicing law, Robert also relishes travel, theater and opera-going, bridge, cooking, and appearing on game shows, with appearances on nine shows to date. He is currently learning Hungarian with hopes of applying for dual citizenship in Hungary through ancestry.
