Robert Kane is an Associate at Slater Slater Schulman and a steadfast advocate for survivors of sexual abuse. Known for his creative tactics in supporting his clients, Robert frequently represents cases against the Boys Scouts of America, the Roman Catholic Church, the YMCA, and other liable organizations.
Robert begins every case prioritizing his client’s values, principles, and legal desires above all else. He supports an individual’s right to pursue justice in a way that meets their unique needs. With a compassionate approach, he empowers his clients to make their voices heard and guides them in identifying concrete goals throughout the legal process.
Robert’s passion for helping others has no limits. In law school, Robert assisted clients at a community legal clinic in West Philadelphia, providing expungement and pardon services to those in need. He successfully prevented clients from becoming victims of employment discrimination and predatory civil claims. Robert first began advocating for victims as a Law Clerk with the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office in 2017, eventually transitioning to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office where he advocated for the victims of violent crimes.
Outside of practicing law, Robert is a former scholar-athlete at Mesa College in San Diego and an avid traveler. Robert lived in Thailand for over a year teaching English to Thai students and training in Thai Boxing. He has since coached Muay Thai at the University of California in San Diego, self-defense at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, and is currently coaching kickboxing at CKO Kickboxing in Simi Valley.
Robert graduated with his B.A. in Psychology from the University of California before obtaining his Juris Doctor Degree from Drexel University’s Thomas R. Kline School of Law. Robert joined Slater Slater Schulman in October 2020 after being inspired by the opportunity to continue advocating for survivors of abuse and trauma.
