I represent individuals accused of all sorts of crimes throughout southwest Missouri.  I graduated from the University of Southern Illinois School of Law in 2000 and passed the Missouri bar exam that same year on my first try.  I worked for a short time at a local personal injury law firm but decided I would rather do criminal law.  I moved on to the local Missouri Public Defender’s Office and that is where I cut my teeth as a criminal defense lawyer.  Shortly thereafter I opened my own law firm here in Springfield in Plaza Towers.  In 2009 I graduated from the most prestigious trial lawyer training program in the country – the Jerry Spence Trial Lawyers College.  Only the best trial lawyers in the country are chosen to attend.   In 2012 I went to work at another firm but am on my own again as The Law Office of Robert F. Torp, LLC.  417-880-3188.

If you or a loved-one have been charged with a crime you need me on your side immediately to protect your legal rights.  I handle any kind of criminal charges in state or federal court throughout southwest Missouri.  I handle cases in the following counties:


 Greene; Christian; Lawrence; Stone; Barry, Dade, Jasper, Newton; McDonald; Webster, Cedar; Wright; and Polk.
