Robert “Robbie” J. Rohl



Rapid City, SD





Robert "Robbie" J. Rohl is a trial attorney with Johnson, Eiesland & Rohl. Robbie is passionate about representing people and prides himself as a trial advocate. He has dedicated his career to zealously advocating for his clients while demonstrating the utmost professionalism and ethical advocacy. Robbie vigilantly remains a student of civil and criminal jury trials and continuously strives to become a better advocate for his clients.  He regularly tries cases to jury in serious personal injury claims as well as serious criminal offenses. 

Robbie fights hard to ensure that his clients receive fair treatment.  Robbie does not represent corporations, insurance companies or any form of Government.  He represents human beings against large entities.  In civil cases, Robbie is determined to maximize recovery against the accountable party and their insurance company. As a trial lawyer, Robbie prides himself in investing in his clients and will fight to obtain the right result.  Since joining the Firm in 2015, Robbie has recovered millions of dollars for his clients.  He represents catastrophically injured people through no fault of their own, and he works resolutely to obtain adequate compensation.

Robbie Rohl is also a well-respected criminal defense attorney.  He has handled criminal cases across South Dakota and regularly tries criminal cases to jury in both state and federal courts.  Robbie has represented people with charges ranging in severity from that of capital punishment (death penalty) all the way to DUI 1st Offense.  Robbie's success as a criminal defense attorney simply requires a brief review of past cases.  He has tried and won felony jury trials, South Dakota Supreme Court appeals, and obtained dismissals by way of Motion practice and Constitutional Rights violations.

In his spare time, which is hard to find, Robbie likes to volunteer at a local nonprofit that he co-founded, Serenity Management, Inc.  This nonprofit is dedicated to providing sober living housing in the Rapid City Community – something Robbie is very passionate about.  Robbie also loves to be in the outdoors mountain biking with his dog, Hottie, or on a boat trying to catch fish.
