Robert E. Pastor would be the first to admit that, as a prosecutor, obtaining a guilty verdict brought great satisfaction. He experienced that satisfaction countless times during his distinguished career with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office. But Bob wanted to do something more positive — to hold people and organizations accountable for the hurt they inflicted on others.

That’s why he turned his talents to helping injured people and their families. Today, Bob represents people who are facing a life-changing injury and those families whose loved one has been killed. Bob has made a special mission of making sure that those who claim to protect us and for whom we entrust with our lives are held to account when they neglect or deny their responsibilities. Throughout his career, for example, Bob has successfully sued school districts, government entities and religious institutions that have chosen to shield sexual predators they employ. By the same token, Bob has fought and won against insurance companies who refuse to provide the protection their clients paid for.

Like many successful trial lawyers, Bob’s commitment to justice comes from a deep, personal experience with pain and loss. Through the years, Bob uses his skills and experiences to obtain millions of dollars in settlements and jury verdicts for his clients.

Jeff Anderson

Trial Attorney

Jeff Anderson is widely recognized as a pioneer in sexual abuse litigation and a champion of survivors of childhood sexual abuse. In nearly four decades as a litigator, Jeff has represented thousands of survivors and their families and has tried over two hundred and fifty jury trials to verdict across the country through the crucible of the courtroom. Known for his optimism, energy and compassion for his clients, Jeff is credited with being instrumental in exposing the large scale cover-up of pedophile priests in the early 1980’s. As one of the first trial lawyers in America to publicly and aggressively initiate lawsuits against sexual predators—and focusing on bringing heat and light on the offenders and the institutions that conceal and protect them.

Jeff has received many awards and recognitions but his greatest honor is the trust reposed in him by survivors and their families. From them he draws strength, courage and inspiration in the shared journey of hope and healing.

Anderson’s tireless efforts extend beyond the courtroom where he is a frequent lecturer, survivor advocate and author who advocates for legislative and judicial protection of children and the prevention of childhood sexual abuse.
