Rob Maitland is the former President of the Orange County Bar Association and the Founding Partner of the Maitland & English Law Firm, PLLC. Rob is proud to be a Tar Heel, having received his law degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, after conducting his undergraduate studies at the University of California, Los Angeles , as a UCLA Alumni Scholar.

Rob is that rare attorney who not only has legal knowledge, but also previous experience in business, banking and entrepreneurial roles. Although known as a tough negotiator and litigator for his clients, Rob’s special quality is his ability to see the big picture and then draw from his background to be a Deal Maker rather than a Deal Breaker. Rob routinely fashions innovative solutions for his clients after consulting on personal, business and litigation matters. You can hear some of Rob’s weekly radio tips at
