"I practiced rough-and-tumble criminal and civil trial law for many years until I stepped on so many prosecutors' and judges’ toes I decided to resign and sold my law practice and became a college law professor and writer."
Bobby was born in San Francisco, CA, on September 3, 1944, to a waitress mother and mysterious father. His younger years were years of endless relocations until his mother and younger sister, Judy, ended their sojourn in Hugo, Oklahoma, the area of his mother’s upbringing, Indian country in Southeastern Oklahoma.
Intent on a military career, Bobby enlisted in the National Guard while beginning his high school senior year. His plans for the future were suddenly cut short when he was jailed and criminally charged with his family’s deaths.
After his release from jail, Bobby had to rebuild his life from scratch and worked his way through the University of Texas and Texas Tech School of Law, all the while supporting a wife and daughter.
Bobby graduated from Law School in 1973 having already passed the State Bar exam. He was admitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court in 1980.
He soon established himself as a fearless trial lawyer in the State of Texas, unafraid to take on the establishment or its leaders in civil and criminal litigation. He made enemies in the legal profession, but his clients worshipped him.
In the early 1990’s Bobby quit the law business to become a professor of law. He moved to Arizona and became certified to teach law and political science and was named Outstanding Business Faculty Instructor at Rio Salado College in 1999.
In 2001 he was retained by the disgraced Arthur Anderson and Company to write an Ethics guide for their employees in Arizona.
Bobby continues to write and teach law and paralegal courses for colleges in Arizona, as well as operate his Private Investigation Firm in Arizona that specializes investigating unsolved homicide cases.
Currently, Bobby is busy writing a series of books under his "Bobby Trials" banner detailing his more controversial Texas trials and Arizona investigations cases.
