Rob Goff likes tackling tough analytical problems and that makes him uniquely suited to the complicated areas of law that he practices. Rob devotes most of his diverse practice in the areas of trusts and estates, business sales and acquisitions, business organizations and structures, asset protection planning, contracts and commercial litigation-areas where he knows that proactive strategic legal planning can keep problems from arising. From drafting a “simple” will to an agreement for a reverse like-kind tax-free exchange, Rob’s attention to detail and focus are key to achieving the client’s goals.

As someone who truly enjoys the law, Rob is often called-upon to educate other attorneys and the public about his practice areas, even serving as an Adjunct Professor of Business Law at West Kentucky Community and Technical College.

Rob and his wife Jane have embraced Paducah as home to their young family. Striving to make it a better place for his daughter, Darcy Claire, Rob is invested in the community. He has served as a volunteer for the Purchase Area Sexual Assault Center and St. Nicholas Family Clinic.
