ROBERT K. FOUNTAIN

Associate *licensed in California 

Robby has always been ahead of the curve. After entering college with almost 60 credit hours he earned in high school, Robby graduated early from the University of Texas with highest honors before spending a year working for his state representative and completing a public interest law fellowship. His next stop: Harvard Law School.

Robby is known for his tenacity and exceptional writing skills, as well as his ability to anticipate and answer even those questions that haven’t been asked. He has worked at both public interest and private firms, gaining a wide range of experience through handling transactional, litigation, and pro bono matters. His knack for detail and affinity for problem-solving, combined with his ability to quickly master sophisticated legal issues, make him an invaluable asset to the Amy Stewart Law team and its clients. His economics background informs his understanding of insurance as a business and helps him craft solutions for his clients.

Robby is an avid musician. A former high school drum major and member of the Longhorn Band in college, he founded a rock band in law school called “Learned Band.”
