Quarles is a caring organization, which actively supports each of the communities it calls home, and the firm’s partners are encouraged to be good corporate citizens in addition to excellent attorneys. As the managing partner of the Naples office, Rob sets a great example, especially because his heart is genuinely in his service to these organizations, among others:
The Community Foundation of Collier County improves the quality of life in Collier County by connecting donors to community needs and providing leadership on critical community issues. Rob is a member and sits on the foundation’s board of trustees.
The mission of Humane Society Naples is to shelter animals in times of need, locate life-long homes, and promote responsible pet ownership through education, legislation, and sterilization. In addition to its shelter and adoption functions, The Humane Society Naples conducts numerous outreach programs at schools and to civic or homeowners organizations to promote responsible pet ownership, including pet sterilization. Rob is a member and sits on the board of directors.
Rob and his wife Stacey have a son, Harrison, who was born prematurely, and Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida not only ensured his health but used both Stacey and Harrison as models for their fundraising campaign (see poster below). Golisano is part of the Lee Memorial Health System, which consists of four acute care hospitals: Lee Memorial Hospital, HealthPark Medical Center, Gulf Coast Medical Center, and Cape Coral Hospital — and two specialty hospitals: Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida and The Rehabilitation Hospital. With a total of 1,423 beds, and over 1 million patient contacts each year, Lee Memorial Health System is the largest public health system in the state of Florida, receiving no direct tax support.
