Hi there! My name is Robert Theofanis and I’d like to thank you for visting my blog, Bobogado (pronounced Bob-o-gado by the way). I started this site in June 2016 as a way to learn about and practice SEO. I was basically just publishing anything and trying to get it to rank in Google. Surprise, surprise — it was much more difficult than I thought.
In March 2019, I started my own law firm, Theofanis, Ltd. My practice focuses on estate planning.
I decided to give this site a makeover and begin sharing what I learn along the way as I grow my firm.
My goal is for Bobogado to become a valuable resource for members of the legal community — law students and lawyers — who are interested in growing their practices.
I’m a practicing attorney in Los Angeles, where I grew up. I went to law school at the University of Notre Dame (Go Irish!). Prior to law school, I taught math and coached football for two years at Chaminade College Preparatory (Go Eagles!) in West Hills, CA. I attended Occidental College (Go Tigers!) in Los Angeles. While at Occidental I played football and majored in physics.
I’ll channel The Most Interesting Man in the World and say: I don’t always refer to myself in the third person, but when I do, I call myself Bob.
Bobogado is a mash-up between Bob (short for Robert) and Abogado (Spanish for lawyer).
A bit silly, sure. But it have me the opportunity to commission a logo of an anthropomorphic bobcat wearing a hat that says Bob.
