Robert S. Hoofman Austin Attorney Robert S. Hoofman joined The Fowler Law Firm PC October 1, 2021 as its new Creditor Rights Practice Section Chief. Robert’s clients will include a diverse group of lenders and financing agents including traditional banks and credit unions, SBA approved lenders with emphasis on diversity, mortgage companies, even lenders who don’t think they are lenders like Moms and Dads, Uncles and Aunties who lend money to loved ones.

Robert maximizes his clients’ recoveries without employing the brutality used by some attorneys. Well known and admired for his good humored professionalism, Robert succeeds in recoveries where others have failed, not by enraging or abusing the debtor, but by respecting the debtor. When asked, Robert quietly notes “Our courts now mandate civility, so why not be a gracious, aggressive professional?”.

Robert is an active member of National Association of Government Guaranteed Lenders and participates in multiple banking and finance sections of State Bar of Texas and Austin Bar Association.
