Robert H. Nunnally, Jr.
Robert H. (“Bob”) Nunnally, Jr., has over twenty years’ experience handling cases in both Texas and California. He has courtroom experience ranging from a trial to approve a plan to rehabilitate a one billion dollar life insurance company down to the most basic business and landlord/tenant disputes representing consumers and small business owners. Bob has also provided advice and transactional assistance to small business owners in connection with contracts, intellectual property licenses, sales of businesses and complex insurance matters. He has assisted a diverse range of clients, from software designers and film producers to overseas distributors of medical products. He has handled a number of cases assisting state insurance regulators, policyholders, creditors and shareholders with the difficult issues that arise when an insurance company becomes insolvent.
Bob grew up in Gurdon, Arkansas, in a small town surrounded by a pine forest. Bob began his law practice living in Mesquite and practicing in Dallas. Before founding Wisener Nunnally, LLP, Bob was a shareholder in Rubinstein & Perry, a Professional Corporation, a nationally-known Los Angeles firm. Prior to his move to Los Angeles, Bob began his career trying cases and providing advice to clients in Dallas. He was admitted to practice in Texas state courts in 1984 and in California state courts in 1988. He was granted registration in the patent bar in 2000. He is also admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court, the United States Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Courts for the Northern District of Texas and the Central District of California.
Bob received his undergraduate degree in physics from the University of Arkansas. In 1984, he received his Juris Doctorate from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock School of Law, graduating fifth in his class with High Honors. Bob served as the Articles Editor on the UALR Law Journal. He authored a case note on public contracts which was published in the Journal, and reprinted in The Yearbook of Procurement Articles and in The Government Contracts Service. He has presented seminar presentations to both private and governmental groups regarding insurance company insolvency.
Bob co-founded Wisener Nunnally, LLP out a desire to help “real people” with the real issues which arise in their lives–whether they arise from business, consumer matters or insurance insolvencies. Bob has always sought to represent consumers and small businesses as well as corporate and regulatory interests in his practice. Along with his partners, Bob seeks in his practice to help people with their legal problems–large and small. In 2003, the Dallas Volunteer Attorney Program awarded Bob a Distinguished Service medal for his work in providing free legal advice to those in need of legal services.
Bob and his wife, Merrill, have no children but enjoy the protection of two staunch lhasa apsos. In their spare time, Bob and Merrill like hiking, visiting public gardens, and seeing interesting movies. Bob enjoys fishing for bluegill and catfish. Bob is an avid chess player, who spends a fair bit of his spare time at the Free Internet Chess Server, playing under the handle “Gurdonark”. Bob has written light free verse for publication in literary magazines and books for over twenty years. In 1999, he published “Chess Poems for the Tournament Player”, a work of bad poetry and bad chess, which has enjoyed brisk sales at internet auction sites. Bob is an avid reader of works of high art and genre fiction.
Bob’s practice provides him with a treasured opportunity to work on both sophisticated and major litigation and transactions, as well as cases and transactions benefiting consumer clients. He seeks to bring his experience to both at Wisener Nunnally Roth, LLP.
