Last Friday, November 23, commemorated five years since the passing of Robert (Bob) T. Franklin. Bob practiced law for three decades and was a founding partner of Franklin & Prokopik, P.C. His legal expertise was wide-ranging and spanned personal injury and workers’ compensation defense to trucking and transportation. He created F&P’s 24-hour response team that handles the investigation of trucking accidents and caring for the driver. Bob had served as general counsel to the Maryland Motor Truck Association, Restaurant Association of Maryland and the Towing and Recovery Professionals of Maryland. His devotion to his work and inner drive propelled him to the top of his industry as a recognized leader, especially in transportation law. Bob was also a much-in-demand speaker and was the author of many legal articles.
A friend and colleague, Bob’s presence is greatly missed at F&P every day. Rather than looking back with sadness, we honor his legacy by remembering all the good times that were shared. We know that is what he would have wanted.
