For the next two years, he taught undergraduate mathematics while attending graduate school at Oklahoma State University. He graduated with his Master’s Degree in Applied Mathematics and worked in the Oil Industry.
Bob received his Juris Doctor from Regent University in Virginia Beach, Virginia in 1994. He moved to Montana and opened a general practice law firm. He worked in Montana for six years, serving clients in the practice areas of wills, estate planning, probate, civil liability, real estate, and more. He is also a member of the Salish Kootenai Tribal Court. While in Montana, Bob met his wife, Heather and started their family, while he also continued to teach mathematics at a local community college.
In 2000, Bob returned to Statesville with his family and began working at The Crosswhite Law Firm. He focused his practice on the areas of estate planning, elder law, and real estate, and since then has honed his abilities and legal interests on providing Medicaid planning and crisis services in Iredell County and its surrounding communities. Bob is familiar with all the ins-and-outs of the application process, eligibility rules, and ongoing requirements for Medicaid for long-term care. He is also able to help create and implement an estate plan that is personally designed for you and your family, making sure that your money and property goes exactly where you wish, without the extra hassle of court proceedings and costs.
