Robert F. Daley had an eight-year career as a chemical engineer before enrolling in Duquesne University School of Law. His decision to become an attorney was driven by a desire to help people and impact society. Since obtaining his J.D. in 1998, Daley has been working as a lawyer at Robert Peirce & Associates, where his areas of practice include personal injury, litigation and appeals, products liability law, toxic torts, nursing home neglect and abuse, medical malpractice, and civil rights.
Among other honors, he received the distinguished Appellate Advocacy Award from the Pound Civil Justice Institute in 2016 for his efforts on Tooey v. AK Steel Corp (Pa. 2013), which resulted in a Pennsylvania Supreme Court landmark decision.
Daley has served Duquesne Law as an adjunct professor since 2015. He also dedicates countless hours to coaching teams of law students in the award-winning trial moot court program. Students adore his sense of humor and appreciate the real-world education in the practice of law.
In his free time, Daley coaches youth baseball, spends hours at his children's sporting events, and cares for the family's animals, which include a cat and several dogs. Bob also likes to golf. He reports that he used to be a lot better at it!
