Bob Sims
Is the founding member of Sims, Lawrence & Broghammer. Bob’s varied litigation practice includes defending personal injury, habitability, construction defect and other insurance defense litigation. Current and past representation includes protecting the individuals and businesses of all sizes including store owners, drivers, contractors, and nonprofits in a broad range of general liability and construction claims.

His trial and binding arbitration experience includes everything from neighbor disputes, automobile accidents, construction cases involving everything from single-family homes, to tracts of homes, multi-family type dwellings and hotels.

Bob graduated from San Jose State University in 1989 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics. He then worked for CNA, Farmers, and Zurich in claims before earning his Juris Doctorate. He was admitted to practice law that same year. He is licensed to practice in both state and federal courts. While at CNA, Farmers, and Zurich, Bob held positions of increasing responsibility in both liability and property claims including claims representative, claims examiner, and claims manager. Following his claims career, it was a natural transition to staff counsel for Travelers where he managed a varied defense practice and established the Construction Defect practice group for that Sacramento office.

Bob resides in Roseville, California (Sacramento area) and is the proud father of three daughters. Bob has served on several youth soccer boards and been active in Girl Scouts. All three of Bob's daughters have graduated from the University of Arkansas. Bob, who was born and raised in Arkansas, is a faithful Razorback fan. Woo Pig Sooie!
