In fact, some of his older clients still remember his grandparents, Bascilio and Maxima Belin. This good-humored and hard-working immigrant family put down Hawaii roots in Kalihi.
Two generations later, Robert graduated from Oregon State University in 1971 with a bachelor’s degree in political science. Before receiving his Doctor of Jurisprudence at Lewis and Clark College in 1979, Robert Marx served three terms as an elected member of the Oregon House of Representatives. While in office, he was responsible for supporting and passing important legislation in the area of nursing home care. In 1977, he was voted Senior Citizen Advocate of the Year by the American Association of Retired People’s and Retired Educator’s Legislative Committee. The following year, he served as an appointed member of the Governor’s Commission on Aging.
Robert began practicing law in Hilo in 1980. He now has offices in Hilo and Kailua-Kona, catering to people from every part of the Big Island. For over two decades, Robert has fought to help residents of Hawaii in the settlement and advocacy of auto accident, medical malpractice and personal injury claims. Attorney Robert Marx has steadfastly served the Big Island, devoting his entire career to the place he is proud to call home.
