    Hugh Robert is one of the most ethical attorneys I know. His ethics extends to all area meeting that rare balance of candor to the court and professionalism in dealing with counsel, with a zealousness for advocacy. But most admirable is his unwavering altruistic vigilance toward the client's interest-- never substituting his own in its place.
