Robert Ferrier


Robert Ferrier is a partner in the Walnut Creek office of Lewis Brisbois and a member of the General Liability Practice.

Attorneys, clients and peers recognize Rob as a passionate advocate and seasoned counselor. While clients often first encounter Rob in crisis, they return for his sound counsel and measured advice. Rob has tried cases to conclusion before both judges and juries. He has also significant appellate experience and has argued cases before the Supreme Courts of Arizona and the Navajo Nation. 

Rob is keenly aware that our clients worked hard to establish their businesses. Rob works just as hard to protect them. Rob's experience includes a breadth of industries, including those new to the scene, and firms established for decades if not centuries. A product of a small agricultural town himself, Rob has special affinity for the agricultural industries and the unique challenges faced by growers and processors in the 21st Century.

Additionally, as the husband of a Dine woman and the father of Native children, Rob has great respect and some insight into the particular issues faced by tribal peoples. Rob is admitted to several tribal courts and has appeared several times in the courts of the Navajo Nation in particular.

Rob is the father of four daughters, the highest honor of his life. He enjoys cooking and collecting records in his spare time. When Rob convinced the most beautiful woman he had ever seen to marry him; he joined her family by the tradition of her people. Rob is therefore honored to claim Shiprock, New Mexico as his home.
