Robert Kofman is a retired labor and employment law attorney who grew up in State College, Pennsylvania. After obtaining degrees in history and political science from Penn State University, he graduated from Duke University Law School.
During forty years of practicing law, Robert first worked for the National Labor Relations Board in Washington D.C. and Philadelphia, and then entered private practice in Miami, Florida. Prior to his retirement, Robert was rated among the best lawyers in his legal specialty—labor and employment law—by a number of legal publications including The Best Lawyers in America and Chambers USA.
A dedicated runner of thirty-eight years, Robert ran six marathons before injury forced him to the sidelines. Happily married, Robert and his wife Rosa live together in Miami, Florida, where they enjoy spending time with their four daughters and four grandchildren.
Fascinated with the Civil War ever since his parents took him to the Gettysburg Battlefield at the age of nine, Robert’s first novel, General Meade: A Novel of the Civil War, focuses on the subject.
