Troy Roberts

Troy is a proven practitioner of law. Combining his service in the US Navy as a naval officer and aviator with his broad legal experience, Troy crafts and implements creative and effective solutions to complex legal and business challenges. His client roster ranges from Fortune 500 companies to individual homeowners.

A solutions-based civil litigation attorney, Troy strives to achieve the best possible pre-litigation outcome for his clients, maximizing cost efficiency. Should party negotiations fail, Troy works closely with each client to develop a tailored litigation strategy based on the damages at stake and client expectations. Troy is a fierce litigator, having litigated numerous multi-million-dollar personal injury, medical malpractice, product liability, wrongful death, construction defect, and contract dispute cases, to name a few.

Troy has legal experience and interest in emerging technologies, particularly “drones” and autonomous vehicles, and he has written extensively on the subject. Troy also is well versed in the blossoming world of esports. Rounding out Troy’s legal background, he has experience in transactional, probate, estate planning, and criminal matters.

Troy earned his Juris Doctorate at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University. During law school, Troy was the Production Editor for Jurimetrics: The Journal of Law, Science, and Technology, the oldest journal of law and science in the United States. Troy also held multiple distinguished externships on top of attending classes and working for legal practitioners. He externed at the Arizona Attorney General's Office, the Arizona Supreme Court, and the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Troy was also a recipient of the William H. Pedrick Scholar award at ASU Law.

Before Troy’s career in law, he was an officer and aviator in the United States Navy. As a naval officer, Troy gained experience in critical decision making, small and large unit leadership, and he achieved operational success in demanding situations across the globe – skills that he uses in his litigation practice. His service provided him with significant life and world experiences that molded him into the effective manager, leader, and legal practitioner that he is today. Troy was also honored to teach Naval Science courses at the University of Texas at Austin as an assistant professor. Troy recently retired as a Lieutenant Commander after serving nine years active duty and eleven years in the reserves.

When Troy isn’t practicing law, he enjoys spending his time traveling and experiencing new cultures, golfing, esports, coaching little league, and trying to be the best father he can be.
