Joe Robb returned to Newton in 1985 after
graduating from Kansas University with a Business Administration degree and obtaining
his law degree from Washburn University. Joe's interest in business
and his comfortable style with people combine well in his practice of
business, estate planning and family law. Extensive experience in divorce, child
custody and support issues as well as work with contracts, corporations,
small business, real estate transactions and collections is the focus of
his practice. In addition Joe has experience with Wills, Trusts,
Powers of Attorney and similar estate planning tools.
Joining his dad and brother in the firm
anchored by his grandfather for over 40 years in the town he grew up in has
been real enjoyable for Joe. And, like those before him, Joe's been
active in his community.

or Chairman of the Newton Area Chamber of Commerce, the Greater Newton
Foundation, the Kansas Behavioral Sciences Regulatory Board, Harvey County
