Robert E. Zaytoun began his legal career in 1976 in Tampa, Florida following graduation from the UNC School of Law in 1975. He became a member of the Florida Bar in 1977 and continues in good standing. Robert practiced law in Tampa until returning to his native state in 1979 to accept a position as an Assistant District Attorney for Wake County in his hometown of Raleigh, North Carolina. As an Assistant District Attorney for three years, he rose to the level of senior prosecutor focusing on the prosecution of career criminals in serious felonies, including capital murder, armed robbery, narcotics cases, and sexual assault crimes. Robert entered the private practice of law in Raleigh in 1982, representing clients in criminal defense cases but always desired to represent victims of wrongdoing and misfeasance in the civil trial arena. His law practice soon evolved into representing injured persons in personal injury cases. Over the past 34 years, his practice has expanded to represent clients in catastrophic personal injury, medical negligence, wrongful death, business litigation and torts, healthcare fraud and abuse, product liability, managed care litigation, class action litigation, and Qui Tam Whistle Blower litigation.

He appears in the State or Federal trial courts, U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, in North Carolina’s State Appellate Courts, at his client’s side at an arbitration or mediation, or advocating for justice through his many professional memberships.
