  3. Robert A. Ernest

Robert A. Ernest is an attorney in Reinhart’s Real Estate Practice, where he invests fully in the success of his clients by taking the time to understand their individual goals and business aspirations. He takes great satisfaction in the practice of real estate law because it involves adding value to things bigger than himself.

Before joining Reinhart, Rob clerked for an independent Milwaukee-based law firm and interned at the Milwaukee County Corporation Counsel, where he researched various legal issues and assisted in developing employment-related procedures. He also worked as a student associate in the Marquette Law and Entrepreneurship Clinic, where he assisted local small businesses with their legal needs, and volunteered at the Marquette Volunteer Legal Clinic, where he educated clients regarding laws and procedures related to civil issues.

In his free time, Rob volunteers with his church and enjoys spending time outdoors with his wife.
