Robert Young IV



Robert is an experienced litigator who defends clients of all sizes, from small business to Fortune 500 companies—many of whom he serves as national counsel. Specializing in products liability as well as asbestos-related toxic tort litigation, Robert draws on his varied experience as an attorney to zealously defend and advocate for his clients’ best interests. Robert’s success for his clients is largely attributed to his first-chair trial experience, ability to effectively communicate, and persuasive expertise. While an expert in the courtroom, Robert is a well-rounded advocate who is also adept at drafting complex discovery, dispositive motions, and facilitating case resolution. Before joining Foley Mansfield, Robert worked as a prosecutor for the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office. There, he single-handedly argued thousands of motions and hearings before judges throughout the County of Los Angeles. As a Los Angeles native, he fought and advocated for victims’ rights while balancing strict application of the law with compassion to ensure that his work was an asset to the needs of his community. Prior to working as a prosecutor, Robert’s practice included defending public entities such as municipalities and counties as well as complex litigation matters involving niche areas of the law such as environmental law as well as construction defect.
