Robert A. Torres, Esq.
Prior to attending law school, Robert served for 25 years as a police officer with the Nassau County Police Department retiring at the rank of Inspector. In addition, Robert has been a New York State EMT-Paramedic since 1986, serving within the New York City Emergency Medical Service system as well as with Northwell Health’s Center for Emergency Medical Services and is a Life Member of the Bay Shore – Brightwaters Volunteer Rescue Ambulance Corps.
During his career as a police officer and paramedic, Robert participated in the rescue and recovery efforts in downtown Manhattan following the events of 9/11 and, in 1991, was awarded the New York City Emergency Medical Services Medal of Honor by Mayor David Dinkins.
Robert graduated Summa Cum Laude from Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center in 2020. During his time spent in law school, Robert participated in the Touro Law Center’s Senior Citizen Law Project as an intern and then as a Pro Bono Scholar where he completed over 500 hours of pro bono work assisting Suffolk County Senior Citizens in the various areas of Elder Care.
Personal events in Robert’s life led him to seek the counsel of an Elder Law attorney to assist him with his parent’s estate. This experience motivated him to pursue a career as an Elder Law attorney so that he could help others maneuver through the various issues every family will face regarding estate and end of life planning. Robert’s extensive life experience, coupled with his legal education and experience, has provided him a unique perspective into the needs of our senior citizen community and he believes strongly in the Tully Law Group’s philosophies toward Elder Care and advocacy.
Robert is admitted to practice law in both New York State as well as in the United States District Court, Eastern District of New York and is a member of the Suffolk County Bar Association.
