As a member of the GTH litigation practice group, Rob Wilke is particularly interested in pre-litigation counseling. He works closely with his clients to help them reduce the risk of future disputes by focusing on risk analysis, strategizing with them about business decisions, and counseling them about maintaining compliance with legal and regulatory requirements.
Rob has lived in the Seattle area for the last twenty years. He graduated magna cum laude from Seattle University School of Law, where he was a Presidential Management Fellows Finalist and the recipient of a CALI award for Law, Language, and Literature.
He served as president of the Seattle University chapter of the International Refugee Assistance Program, an organization that assists vulnerable refugees around the world by mobilizing direct legal aid and systemic policy advocacy. He has also worked for a non-profit that connects people in need with health, human and social service organizations.
Rob enjoys snowboarding on Crystal Mountain, exploring Tacoma’s local breweries, reading literary fiction and watching obscure foreign films. He also loves to travel and hopes to go snowboarding someday in Japan, where he taught English for a year. Rob and his wife—also an attorney—share their home with a Great Pyrenees dog who loves going hiking and camping with them in the North Cascades and Olympics, and two cats who prefer to stay home and watch obscure foreign films.
