As the founding member, Robert J. Dewey represented people in court for over 30 years and set the principles that are still used today by Dewey, Ramsay & Hunt. He began his career as an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney. Desiring to have more client contact he entered private practice.
Using his trial skills, he developed a practice built partially of clients referred from other lawyers. He began to represent injured people. After trying many cases, he attended a nationally renowned trial skills workshop through the Institute of Continuing Legal Education at the University of Michigan. Shortly thereafter, he was one of only 48 trial attorneys from all over the U.S. who attended the Institute’s first Advanced Trial Skills Workshop, by invitation only.
Throughout the years he continued to successfully represent injured people, both in and out of court. He passed his wealth of trial experience and representation of injured people to the other attorneys, including his skills in every phase of case development, from investigation and assessment to negotiation and trial.
Coming from a humble background, he understands people from all walks of life. Together with his wife, he worked his way through college and law school. After serving in the U.S. Army, he received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Michigan State University. He received his legal education at The University of Tennessee College of Law where he finished 3 years of law school in two and a quarter years. Bob made the decision to retire from Dewey, Ramsay & Hunt, P.A., as of January 2018. He will be missed and we wish him well.
