Robert Tree


I graduated from West Valley High School in 2003. From there I recieved my bachelors degree in history from Brigham Young University Hawaii. I then began my career with the Tree Law Office where I worked for a year before beginning law school. I attended law school at Thomas Cooley School of Law (now Western Michigan School of Law). While studying the law I continued learning from and working in the Social Security Disability field for my father James Tree at the Tree Law Office. Since graduating from law school my wife and I have had our two children showed above (one a little more hairy).
