Rob Levine began his career in service and advocacy at the young age of sixteen when most kids his age were simply being kids. He became part of the Glen Rock Volunteer Ambulance Corps as an EMT (emergency medical technician) and within a year was promoted to Crew Chief. He served for nine years committed to helping those in need, while rising through the ranks to become the second-in-command of a fifty-person squad.
This was the beginning of his call to service. His schooling brought him to Newport, Rhode Island where he received his degree in Administration of Justice from Salve Regina University, and he served in the Rhode Island Army National Guard for three years as a military police officer. After graduation and national guard service, Rob continued on his path to serve his community as a police officer on the Central Falls Police Department. Once on the force, he quickly decided more could be done to help make the community he served a better place. He began writing for a grant project and subsequently securing a sixteen thousand dollar grant for the department’s first K-9 Drug Enforcement Unit. Rob was appointed as the K-9 Officer and received formal training in California. Alongside his patrol duty, Rob and his dog were an instrumental part to fighting the ever-present drug problem in the city.
Rob concentrated on his personal development, graduating from Roger Williams University School of Law in 1999. Practicing law, was yet another opportunity to continue helping and advocating for those in need. For the next 20 years, as the firm matured, Rob expand his practice areas to include ones which remained focused on advocating for injured and disabled clients. In addition to personal injury cases, medical malpractice, social security disability as well as veterans disability practice areas have become an extension of that focus, where Rob and his team help individuals nationwide and medical malpractice clients within Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Connecticut.
Giving back is equally as important to Rob as is his advocacy work and fighting for justice for his clients. As part of his philanthropic mission–giving back for the betterment of families, children, and the community–annually, the Rob Levine Gives Back program, provides 300 thanksgiving dinners with all of the fixings. He invites community organizations to nominate families who this will benefit. Each year, these meals are hand delivered by Rob and his team to homes across Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts. Rob and team partner with other organizations with aligned missions, including Brain Injury Association of Rhode Island, Family Services, Dorcas International, Tri-County Community Action Agency, Fall River Deaconess Home, and more.
Still today, Rob feels a continued need to serve his community and does so as a volunteer, Ski Patroller, and Paramedic. Rob’s greatest accomplishment was becoming a father in 2001. His daughter Chelsea, similar to her father, has developed the call to service and community. Chelsea’s calling began in 2014 with CPR and OEC (outdoor emergency care) certification and volunteering on ski patrol. Chelsea, having finished her freshman year at URI, will be embarking on a path in the medical field in the accelerated ASN/RN program at New England Institute of Technology.
